I want to get something clear about mental illness. If you think that telling someone to “just get over it” or “just change and be happy” is going to work, then you’re sadly mistaken. Oh, and “you’re so immature” or “grow up” doesn’t do anything either. If anything, it makes it worse. If you think putting down the kid who hurts themselves for what they do is going to help them in any way then you’re really fucking stupid. Even if you have mental illness or claim you do, it is different for everyone. You can never truly know for sure how the other person is feeling. Half the time, the person feeling can’t understand it either. Why? Because the pain is fucking invisible. In my opinion, mental pain is worse than physical pain. It comes from no where and you can’t control it no matter what you do. You can’t see it, you can’t apply a cream or gel to it, you can’t stitch it up. That’s where self harm comes from. The pain is no different, maybe even less than what is in your head. It just makes more sense because you can see it and tend to it.
So, unless you are a trained professional looking to genuinely help or you found a way to magically crawl into the heads of the mentally ill and feel the pain for yourself, shut the fuck up. I’m sick of seeing nasty messages being sent to people on here.
