You know what sometimes sucks more than being depressed yourself? Hearing that someone close to you is depressed/anxious/upset.
It’s the feeling of helplessness.
Like you know there’s realistically nothing you can do to help them except try to convince them that often, the things they’re upset about are not true or not worth being so upset about.
But it’s never that easy. You can’t ever ‘talk’ someone out of their blues.
You can support. And they’ll probably appreciate that.
But man. It sucks to watch them go through that.
Eugh. Must it be so difficult?
