Mental Health

Hi everyone 🙂

Today I’ve decided to post a raw, unedited draft (a rant) from my notebook. So this might be a little different from the usual ^ ^

When I’m sick, I get an overwhelming sense of relief.

I think, finally!! A valid reason for not performing a certain task!! doing simple favours for people!!

When you’re sick, more often than not, people won’t be too demanding.

With mental health… ohhh yes, I’m going there.

With mental health, if someone asks you to help them with the salad, you don’t feel like you can say “I’m really sorry, but I just don’t trust myself with a knife right now.”

And why?

Because you get The Look.

You know what I’m talking about.

The face that says, “even though I’m saying that’s fine, I’m thinking that you’re playing victim and being pathetic”

To the givers of The Look, all of us are making petty excuses born out of laziness.

I dread the day that I don’t say I’m not up to it, and am found bleeding on the kitchen floor.

Because it’s NOT an excuse!!!

And the sooner this is realised, the sooner we can have relative peace.

The original (copied word for word)

Don’t worry, guys, I’m not going to be found bleeding on a kitchen floor anytime soon (or, you know, hopefully ever) – in fact, I just got 200 followers!

Thank you SO much to all the beautiful, WONDERFUL people that have liked my writing enough to follow me!!!! I still can’t quite believe it…

Anyway, I’ll be posting about that 😉 ❤
