you think you’re faking depression? oh ok, then you know, stop being sad. it’s a conscious choice to fake, so just stop it. get off tumblr, stop reblogging sad shit, and be happy. let’s see how that’ll work out for you. if you think you’re faking, you can stop doing it right now.

this applies to all mental illnesses. there is reason why your brain is giving you these thoughts, ‘’you’re fakingggg!!’’, it’s hard to become aware of how ill you are, your brain is trying to cope in the best way it can, by pretending you’re fine. but it’s ok to not be ok. you are not faking, even if you were subconsciously faking somehow (which almost never happens), the pain is real and valid and you deserve and need help. everytime you feel like you’re faking, keep all of this in mind.
you can try to save this post or write it somewhere, or screenshot it when you feel bad.
