One of my closest friends mentioned to me recently how happy I look via my Instagram stories, little did they notice my breaks from social media because I was feeling so depressed and anxious, or me crying to my friends on the reg, or me having dark thoughts, or me using my laugh and sarcasm to cover this all up, or me doing these ‘fun’ things to distract myself and also booking myself in to see a Psychologist again this month.
Never assume someone is okay, especially don’t assume their mental state is okay via social media. This entire year has been an absolute whirlwind, actually no scrap that it’s been a friggen cyclone of a year for me-loljks my entire life is a cyclone. So please always ask your friends, family, co-workers, everyone ‘R U OK?’ and take your time to actually listen to them and don’t brush off their mental health like it’s nothing and something that is easy to get over. It’s not up to you to make someone happy or to always be there for them but if you can just listen to someone if they’re having a bad day I’m sure that would mean the world to them. Be kind 💖✨📷 taken by the lovely @kintangolledge on a trip where I was so dang anxious from start to finish but being surrounded by kind souls and beautiful landscapes made it 10/10 worth it 🌿✨
