romanticization of mental illness on Flickr by Kelsey Weaver.

It’s time to stop romanticizing and glorifying mental illness. Normalizing it only makes things more difficult for people who actually suffer from mental illnesses.This bullshit that being ‘tragic’ and ‘misunderstood’ is not appealing, it’s destructive. Someone isn’t going to come along and think your scars are beautiful and make everything okay for you. You’ve got to make things okay for yourself.

Whatever it takes, be it medication, counseling, or just talking to someone you trust - it gets better. I promise.

You are stronger than your illness.
