This is the shit that plays though my head every minute of every god damn day and people ask me these stupid fucking questions like "what are you doing about it?" FUCKING EVERYTHING, number one, trying to ignore all this regressive shit the ones I love have said to me.
PSA: NOT BLAMING ANYONE HERE. If you can't see that I pity you. But since some of you don't get it let me explain the fucking poem.
Fault - when depression hits it effects everyone, so fault is spread throughout. Some is real, some is not.
Quotes - sometimes when people think they're helping you they say the wrong thing. Sometimes this could equate to a microagression sometimes it's just something harmful.
Depression - depression effects everyone. I am in therapy, I am working toward bettering myself and doing everything in my power to heal so I can be the best mom and wife I can be. So when I am struggling and someone cynically asks me "but what are you doing tho?" it makes it feel like the months of hard work I put in were for nothing. That hurts.
So, do not for a fucking second think this is some woe is me fucking poem. This is the rude ass shit people have said to me on my healing journey. MY JOURNEY THAT I AM WORKING ON.
