TW: Mental Health, Depression, Suicidal Thoughts

Mental illness isn’t black and white. Sometimes we know what’s led to it, what has flared it up and sometimes we don’t. Sometimes it comes out of nowhere, sometimes we see it coming. It can be a chemical imbalance, a hormonal imbalance or even situational. But it’s never straightforward.

You don’t have to have a ‘reason’ to entitle you to be mentally unwell. Mental illness doesn’t discriminate.

Those going through a tough time can become mentally unwell. Those with seemingly great lives from the outside can still be unwell. We need to stop comparing and judging.

Mental illness is often difficult to describe by those who experience it and even more difficult to live with. But what we do know is that it still takes lives.

Seeing some of the comments about Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington makes me sad about how so many people don’t understand these simple points.
