have you ever heard the phrases
"you're not really depressed"
"you're doing it for attention"
"you're just faking it"

you are not faking it
maybe even you think you are
but your feelings are valid
no matter how big
or how small

maybe you think that
because others have it worse
you shouldn't complain
but your feelings are valid
no matter how big
or how small

if you are struggling
period
you don't have to feel bad
for asking for help
because your feelings are valid
no matter how big
or how small
your feelings are valid. you are valid. don't be afraid because "someone has it worse". don't let others tell you what you do and do not feel. your feelings are yours and yours alone. stay safe and healthy everyone, and remember to drink some water and grab a snack. <3

    This hurts because of how much I relate to it. My first depressive episode wouldn't have been nearly as bad as it was if I had not been told these things and been in denial for so long. People don't always realize how harmful it is to say things like these.

    This is such an inspiring piece. Thankyou. Love this piece and I sometimes feel like my feelings aren't important because someone has it worse or I need to be perfect. So thank you for making my day!
