Mental health

My principal/head teacher spoke in our whole school assembly today, he referred to mental illness’ as ‘mental infections’ and then said that if we don’t look at things on the internet that relate to sad things noone will have 'mental infections’. I wanted to punch him in the face at that moment. For example if I had anorexia it’s most probably because I hate my appearance and think I’m fat, I could stop looking at skinny girls on the internet AND STILL HAVE BLOODY ANOREXIA! I just wanted to say if you have never been through a mental illness (which he obviously has never had otherwise he wouldn’t say something so stupid) then don’t give advice when you have no clue what your on about. Mental illness’ aren’t something that people can control straight away. Again with depression I’m not going to get automatically better by not going on the internet. This makes me so angry.

- when your depression becomes an anchor - 🌻 I want to travel. build fires. learn a new language. read every book twice. drink milky tea. play scrabble. hear my sister laugh. watch the sun rise like an offering. sing in the car. walk through museums and galleries. look in mirrors and not turn them around. I want to forgive the world. And then forgive myself.
