You don’t have a mental illness?
You’ve never tried nor experienced suicide?
I envy you!
You’ve never felt the intense fear of the unseen barrier prevent you from leaving your own home?
Count yourself as bless!
You’ve not steered in the mirror angrily hating every inch of your own body?
You’ve never seen the panic within someone’s eyes knowing they can’t make it better?
Never been called an attention seeker because lack of understanding?
Again your lucky!
Be kind people. You may not have the inside knowledge on what a hidden illness feels like. But you can show compassion, understanding, love. You may never know but you could just save someone’s life by a little empathy. I’m grateful if your one whom doesn’t suffer, its a cruel and unusual mind set I’d not wish upon my worse enemy. I just ask that you be kind. Because in my darkest hours what pulled my back was the simple act of a smile and I’m here for you.
