Depressed and suicidal people are difficult to correspond with on a level that isn't superficial. It's so hard to navigate a relationship with a depressed person without going into either pity party or messiah complex territory. And if both are avoided, they're liable to catasthrophizing things and pushing the other person away for whatever reason. But people who tell others to reach out are indeed just virtue signalling, and they'd never really ever get to that point anyway.>>3577919
Never tell anyone. Nobody is going to understand you, and more often than not you'll be worse off as a result of advertising your weaknesses like that. I know that there's something wrong with me but people have always just blamed it on me being lazy, ever since I was young. Realizing that I'm just sick is ironically the only thing that has had a positive effect on my well-being.
