NOBODY is willing to help (and I don’t mean my specific case with my family). I mean in general. People aren’t willing to help others, which is why people always say stuff like “go for a walk,” “go journal,” “think positive,” “go see a therapist,” “go take meds/drugs.” It’s to defer them from actually having to do anything. It ends the conversation any time you try to tell them about anything.
Saying that is the equivalent to “thoughts and prayers.” It’s fine to SAY it but ACTUAL HELP is better. People need actual help. That’s why people are in the predicament they are in. Self help doesn’t work bc humans need help from other people. If self help works, then why are there MILLIONS of these books and yet people still have depression and issues?
“self help” is bullshit.
