This is a reblog talking about things that people should not say to people with mental illnesses. Just because you can’t see what is wrong, doesn’t mean something isn’t wrong, and just because someone else might have felt sad, or hyper, or angry, or confused and gotten over it, doesn’t mean someone with a corresponding mental illness. Most of us want to get better, we just don’t know how or don’t have the tools. And we can’t just snap out of it – an imbalance of chemicals in our brains isn’t something we can just change.
If you wouldn’t say these things to someone who has cancer, why would you to say them to someone who has mental illness?
