lol ive said this before and 3984 years from now when i’m finally ready to leave tumblr, it will probably be my last post on this website
but one of my major pet peeves is how quick people are to adapt this condescending/judgmental stance re: recovery once they are doing well/recovered/think they’re recovered/whatever
……and holy shit i am seeing it a lot now during a time when other people are more typically “struggling” or relapsing or going back into treatment
i’m about to throw ‘i’ statements out the window but like honestly??…let people live and make the choices that feel right for them in the moment. maybe later they’ll realize there was another choice, but again, it’s….not your place. let them seek help without drilling the shame thats already being continually reinforced about “escaping life” or taking the easy route help. bc in the next click the same community is reblogging some cliche post about how asking for help is the ~bravest thing people can do and those are some mixed signals !!!
