You are not alone

Mental illness can be terribly isolating. We often end up hating ourselves for not feeling okay, while everyone else seems to race past us. It can be terrifying to feel like you’re going to be judged — at home, at work, in our own ‘safe zones’ that we create for ourselves.

It helps to know that you are not alone.

What they say

​ It baffles me that people will always take out time and effort to tell you how fat or thin or skinny or dark or something or the other you look. We’re a completely obsessed society. That people respond to you based on your physical appearance is something we’ve unfortunately ‘normalized’ and accepted. From the playground to the corporate world, it seems like there are plenty of opportunities for these predators… Who might well be completely unaware. All these years I seem to have been deaf to these comments… You only notice what you experience perhaps. I talked about this with a friend who said “Don’t worry, you’re gorgeous” and I wanted to say hey I’m not asking for validation. I’m not asking for confirmation that I’ve passed in some sort of test. I think we just need to stand up and say that this is not okay to people who make unthinking, inconsiderate, inane comments.
