dan didn’t open up about his mental illness so that you could look at previous videos and wonder whether he was feeling depressed when he made them.
dan specifically told you that he wasn’t looking for sympathy and that he is who he is in spite of the thing that was constantly holding him back. he didn’t ask for people to look at old videos and gifs and reblog them with ‘#i wonder if he was sad here’ or ‘#i’ll never look at this the same way again’
it’s really bothering me that people are using dan’s honesty as an excuse to play some sick ‘spot the depression!’ game, he wanted to share his experience and try to help other people who are suffering like he did, but instead people are doing this and it just makes me so angry that they have missed to point so blatantly!?
