I hold myself to a pretty firm set of ethics and morals
And as someone who is 23 and still on a website filled with a lot of teenagers and younger people in general, I find it really socially, morally, and ethically irresponsible to make jokes and memes about suicide and depression.
Because I remember how I was as a teenager, forced into a deep, deep depression that saw me attempt (obviously and thankfully unsuccessfully) suicide on several occasions and those “lmao I want to die” memes were how I coped back then.
Depression is something that I still deal with, albeit better managed, to this very day and I cannot even begin to stress how much it absolutely breaks my heart to see 15/16 year olds on here fall into those same toxic coping mechanisms that absolutely ruined my own teenage years and instead of facing my problems head on and tried to better myself I succumbed, like so many others on social media, to hiding behind the mask of “lmao im heckin sad”
I know this is going to sound ridiculous because this is a ridiculous website but if you’re in your 20s like me, and suffer from depression or other mental illnesses please think about what you post on here. I want to uplift the really young people on here out of that void that is depression before it consumes them like it consumed me, not to be the ones that give them the fuel to sink deeper and deeper
