Don’t get angry at people with depression for pushing you away when they’re down. They can’t help it. They feel like a burden. They feel alone. They feel like your sympathy is pity and you could never really understand. In spite of anything they say, they really don’t want you to leave. They want to be happy and they want you to hold their hand. People with depression push away the people who mean the most to them.
So I just wrote this for my Math teacher and I felt it was appropriate. Someone’s got to speak out for us right?
Just an hour after I posted this a police officer took me to the office and they talked to me about this because my teacher turned it in. So I got in trouble but I refused to take the post down because this is so important to me. We don’t have many people speaking out against mental illnesses and we have to start somewhere.
