My story feels like it would be seen as sexist.You see,my MC is lazy due to the belief that pursuing goals would be pointless for her since she sees herself as shit that won't amount to nothing,a belief that stems not doing alot compared to others her age.She meets a guy who isn't the love interest(he's in a mlm relationship),who gives her motivation to pursue goals as he believes it's not too late for her. But the love interest doesn't feel like much compared to his role, what do you think?
I don’t think this sounds sexist at all! If anything, this is refreshing, as it showcases a platonic bond and demonstrates how the support of her friend helps her out of her depression. It also seems to have good representation, which is always a plus (just be careful not to fall into the Sassy Gay Best Friend trap.)
Note that even if you have a love interest in your story, they don’t always have to take center stage. The manuscript I’m now attempting to publish is essentially a platonic love story between two friends, and though one of my main characters did have a husband whom she clearly loved dearly, their relationship was never the focal point of the novel.
You can have your MC end up in a loving and committed relationship without it being the magical healing force that cures her depression and feelings of worthlessness. In fact, please do, as I hate the trope that mental illness is miraculously cured by having a boyfriend.
I hope this helps, and happy writing! <3
