One of the things that piss me off the most is when people do drastic things for attention.
I hate when people say they have depression and that they’re depressed when they really mean sad. Like depression is a mental illness that you would have to be diagnosed with. You can’t go around telling people that you’re depressed and expect sympathy. I get that being sad can eventually turn into depression. You cannot just have it from one day to the next. If you were actually depressed, you wouldn’t tell anyone or make it public, because you know thay everyone will end up treating you differently. Like you’re broken. Like why would you want to fake a mental illness when you know that there is nothing wrong with you. When you know that there are so many people struggling with it?
You don’t cut yourself and then show all your friends the next day, all happy and joy and expect them not to treat you differently. People like that are why depressed and suicidal people get treated like a joke some times. There is nothing wrong with you. So stop trying to draw attention to yourself.
