Not all depression is created equal.
Not all depressive episodes are the same.
One good day does not mean we’re in remission.
Assuming that we are depressed because we aren’t trying hard enough or are lazy is hurtful.
We don’t need to look depressed for it to matter. Depression is INVISIBLE — we are struggling way more than you can see on the surface.
Depression is not a competition.
There is no one single factor that causes depression and it’s no ones fault.
We need reassurance because most of the time we feel like a burden. Validation is everything.
It’s a hard night. I’m feeling deeply hurt, invalidated and judged and i’m literally just trying not to die.
