Don’t Say THIS —

I was going to entitle this article don’t say this to people with mental illnesses, but it goes for every disorder — for every PERSON. These are all statements people have said to me. Please don’t say them to anyone. ❤



Don’t say this:

It’s selfish to feel the way you’re feeling.

You seem to always have a problem.

You ruined Christmas (or the weekend or the moment or WHATEVER)

You seem manic/depressed to me.

Aren’t you over this yet?

You’ll outgrow this. 

Don’t have children — your books can be your children.

Your problems aren’t real problems.

Oh, I get depressed all the time and it’s kinda annoying.


Please let me know what you’d add to this list!
