I understand that not everyone can understand mental health, and that it can be difficult if you are just fortunate enough to never have had issues with that, and I am happy for you if that is the case, but why is it so hard to understand that my reality just looks different than yours?
I am sorry, I am just ranting here I guess…
I am not asking to be understood or perfectly supported by everyone, I do not even ask for advice or pity or whatever, all I want it for people to understand that my brain works differently, and not like theirs.
People who tell me things like „you just need to pray more“, „trust God, He is by your side“, „just choose joy“, „you need to relax and meet some new people“, or „it is all Justin your head, you‘ll get over it“, make me so incredibly angry, and intensely sad.
Why is it so hard to accept that a mental illness is just like every other illness?
Why do I have to justify that I feel terrible and need help, just because the problem literally is in my head?
I do not want to deal with people like that anymore. I do not want to have to explain myself one more time. I do not want to be stuck between people who think they know what’s wrong with me.
I don’t want to anymore.
