Mental Health: Don’t Worry About What Others Say About Your Mental Illness
Worry Less Live More

You’re not to blame for your mental illness, neither are you to blame, for the thoughts and feelings that comes right along with it. It’s not your fault, it’s a medical result. Something you don’t want but truly and honestly, you gets no choice… it’s remorseless. It also affects your behavior, and concentration, making it difficult to do the simplest things.

When it comes to mental illness… people say the darnedest things!! With no kind of understanding.

Mental illness is sometimes debilitating, embarrassing, and really really misunderstood. Many people just don’t understand. What’s the most insensitive thing someone’s said to you about your mental illness??

I’ve heard things like “I had depression and I got over mine.” Really?! Yes! How harsh is that right? I’ve also heard, “it’s time for you to grow up now,” or “maybe you need a hobby,” wow right? I’m serious. I’m telling you the truth. It’s devastating. That was horrible to say to someone with a mental illness.

But no matter what, don’t let such ignorance get to you. People need to think before speaking because, you never know what someone is going through. Sometimes you don’t have to say nothing. Your presence could be enough. Imagine a friend comes to see you in the hospital, don’t know why but, when you tell him/her they reply, “At least it’s not cancer,” enough for you to slap them (lol) just kidding, just a little humor…. but yeah it makes you angry because mental illness is just as serious as other physical illnesses. You can to die from mental illness just like you can die from a physical condition.

Everyone is “fighting a battle you know nothing about.” So try to be kind… you won’t die from being kind. You can’t judge a book by it’s cover is indeed a very true saying.

Most times, those of us with a mental illness, don’t feel pretty, or we don’t feel worthy, or we don’t feel love, or loved. But that stops now! No negative at all, all positive vibes.

You can use some of these tips to rebalance yourself, or to even keep balance.

One other thing, which helps decrease depression and anxiety, is exercising, it also improves your moods. Also, make sure you get as much sleep as you can, enough sleep.

Surround yourself around positive people:

Those with the strong support system, social connections are generally healthier than those who lack support. But there are support groups, you can meet new people at a club. Make plans with supportive people, it can be family members, or close friends. Surround yourself around people who care for you, people who got your back, people who are there to pick up your slack. Not just anyone.

Whether you like it or not, stress is actually apart of life. There are ways to practice good coping skills: try Tai chi, or take a natural walk, or try writing in your journal as a stress reducer.
