Let's just talk about stigma, judgements, assumptions and ignorance.
It is 2018, not the stone ages.
I still witness so much stigma surrounding #mentalhealth .
It's got better but there are still the people that say things such as:
~ think of the starving kids in Africa or the people in villages in Asia, they have it harder than you. Ok first of all when the FUCK did Africa and Asia come into the conversation? As bad as things are in places like that and as much as I feel for those people, what's that got to do with anything?!
~ Time to just snap out of it and shape up. . Ok first of all, this just makes us feel like we are CHOOSING to live with mental illness. We are NOT. If we could just "snap out of it" and forget about #Depression#anxiety#bipolar#bpd#ptsd#bpd for example we would. We don't like having to wake up every day and needing to FIGHT. It's fucking hell. So YOU shape up and do ya research hun.
~ Have you tried just being positive or maybe like joining the gym? many people with mental illness regularly use gyms. Many people with mental illness are positive lol. Again, educate ya self bruhhh.
I'm sure there are countless other things you guys still hear or have heard over the years?
Please comment and let me know.

Don't ever forget to give yourself permission to pause... That's when miracles happen. If you've gotta force it, leave it alone. Relationships, friendships or ponytails... just leave it.
Double tap it you agree!
