you can’t “fix” someone who is mentally ill just to eradicate parts of them that inconvenience you. help them by accommodating them, being patient and understanding that some things can’t be cured by exposure or basic therapy. yes, it’s inconvenient and sometimes it downright sucks, but if you love someone don’t judge them while they do what they need to do to work it out on their own time, however they need to do it, whenever they are ready to do it. if they reach out to you, take their hand and offer guidance, but unless you’re an expert do not try to police their mental health. just love them and trust that if they could be “fixed” they would be, in a second, for you and for themselves.
