Trust me, I am a professional. I really am. Go ahead and look it up, I’ll wait.
The vast amount of incorrect information and half truths that is available for our reading pleasure overwhelms me. I’m sure you feel the same sometimes. I ignore everything about the Kardashians because I’m not interested in them, but if something about mental health catches my eye...
I am not going to give you medical advice, but I am going to fling a load of common sense mixed with professional and personal knowledge in your general direction.
Be interested in what I have to say because you could save a life and that life could be your own. Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to certain things and one of those things is depression.
Depression hurts. Depression kills. Depression can be treated.
So, don’t read the Internet that tells you what you want to hear or get yourself in a game of Dr. Google, trying to diagnose and treat yourself.
Last but not least, don’t wear the skinny jeans if they just don’t fit right, okay? If something is making you uncomfortable and unhappy, you have the power to make it right. Remember that comparison is the thief of joy. Just because all the cool kids are jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge in their skinny jeans after drinking beers, that doesn’t mean you should feel bad driving to therapy in your pajama jeans after taking your happy pills.
Trust me. I’m a professional.
