Change the Way We're "Helped"

Wed, 02/12/2014 - 14:11 -- J.M.H


Just be happy!
I can't.
Just don't worry! 
I can't.

Don't you get it?
It's not that easy.
You mean well with your words,
But don't you see that I need help?

Depression is not cured by being happy.
Anxiety is not cured by not worrying.
Mental health is not that simple.

Take time to try to understand.
To really learn.
To really help.
