Secret~ My siblings don't think I have Depression and Anxiety, They say I'm just saying I do for attention. I hate how mental illness has been romanticized by some idiots that think it's cute and poetic to Have anxiety or Depression, Or to be suicidal.
i feel you so much. people who think depression is a pretty thin white girl sitting at her window while its raining and not going outside with her friends, or that anxiety is just being nervous to do a presentation or something make me so upset. this is why i’m so so happy there is being more of a conversation happening lately around mental illness, and more people with large audiences are opening up about it and ways to get help. i’m so sorry your siblings are like that and you are completely valid in your feelings my dear :(
