I’m probably about to lose several followers, but this is something I firmly believe. Depression isn’t a trend, cutting yourself isn’t ‘cute’ and goddammit, neither is dropping out of school, self-tattooing or chain smoking at seventeen. You aren’t the first girl to get broken up with. You aren’t the first kid to witness his father abuse his mother. You aren’t the only teenager whose mother is an alcoholic.
We’re all sad; we all go through bullshit called everyday life. We all have difficulties, inner demons we’re battling. But it doesn’t mean we’re all depressed, it doesn’t mean we can romanticize a clinical disorder and make it fascinating and trendy. Fucking depression isn’t cute. Stop making this world about you and how you’re sad. We’re all sad.
