When I see somone post on facebook saying “Fuck anxiety and depression!”
And I see that a billion people have liked it, and then continue to see that 80% of those people are under the age of 15…
I know I shouldn’t, but I can’t help but think “There’s no way in hell that all eighty million of you have anxiety and depression.”
But, everyone “has” anxiety and depression now. And I’m not saying that peopledon’thave anxiety and depression, it’s just getting to the point that if someone has one anxious thought, or feels kind of sad one day, they suddenly have an anxiety disorder and depression.
That’s not how it works guys. Stop it.
It especially frustrates me when I say something like “Man. I know how you feel. Have you tried x or y?” to offer help and support and they’re like “lol no, I just feel anxious about z, and it makes me sad.”
