Behaving

Posted on

I love this quote because i see it in my own life and work. I struggle with appearing “normal” and mood/ anxiety free. Society wants to post a ton of memes about accepting depression yet where are the others in acceptance?

Put on a happy face and hide. Maybe im projecting here as i worry my mental illness will sabotage my career and I’m feeling snarky. Still i think is truthful the worst part is to behave as if you don’t have a mental illness. It makes others more comfortable.

    I totally agree. This phenomenon makes it especially hard for people with depression and other mental illnesses to ask for help 😦 I’m glad bloggers like you are working to decrease mental health stigma.
