Recently, I’ve been struggling with my mental health. For the first time, it seems too much. Don’t get me wrong, I want to live. That’s all I want to do.
I believe that the modern trend of presenting the idealized you on social media is adding to our depression. Bare envy sits at the root of this problem.
In 2018, I discovered that I suffer from depression. But, that’s okay. I’ve learned that help is not an abstract concept, nor is it a manifestation of weakness.
Despite our greater education on the subject, the topic of suicide is anything but a discussion.
After a suicide, we often ask what we could have done and we shout that if only that mentally ill person asked for our help, we’d help. That is a delusion.
Friend, I know you’re struggling. I know, because I’m in the same place as you.
We, the anxious Millennials, are derided for being delusional, self-centered, and medicated. We, however, see this as an adequate avenue of tolerating the world being left to us.
