10 things you don't need to point out to someone with Depression by @realdepressionproject
Written by @realdepressionproject
That there are people worse off
That things "could be worse"
That no one said life would be easy
That they need to "get over it"
That they need to "cheer up"
That everyone goes through dark moments
That they need to "lighten up"
That they don't look depressed
That things would be better if they were able to "think positive"
That you hate their depression
Dismiss one's struggle
Are too simplistic
Make one feel guilty / ashamed
Invalidates their emotions
Make them feel misunderstood
Worsen their symptoms
It's better to lend a hand than point a finger.
