Dear internet, this is how you gently and thoughtfully change people’s minds. No shaming, no yelling, just a nice nudge to, “Aha!”
I will aspire to use classy same tone next time I try to educate someone about something!
very well said by both. I shut down when I hear people use the word “depressed” in that type of way. ”After my gf broke up with me, i was so depressed for like a month.” Sorry, bro/lady. I’m sorry that you got dumped, but I doubt you know what depression is. If you did, you wouldn’t be talking about it. And you’d be battling with it for much longer than a month.
Mental illness makes us weak, but they don’t make us un-strong.
