Rest in Peace to Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain that took their lives. I’m exasperated over all of these FaceBook statuses. People pretending to care about others. Posting hotline phone numbers. Really phone numbers? How about post your own number? Or send someone a message that’s hurting to check on them. Okay? These suddenly caring people see a person in distress they are the first to not just kick a person when they are down but laugh, joke, isolate, stigmatize and demonize any person who doesn’t fit inside this perfect box.
People everyday suffer from depression. Not everyone is happy daily. Yes people are suicidal and take their own lives. Stop acting surprised when the person you bullied, harassed, turned your back on, kicked when they were down takes their life. That misperception that they haven’t sought help or haven’t received treatment is just that an assumption. They probably called you and you were too busy judging or talking about them on a Facebook status to pick up the phone or answer their inbox for help.
Many suffer in silence for years while you post statuses saying you’d never date or befriend a person that suffers from mental health conditions. While you call them crazy and other hurtful names. Remember you told them to get over it? It’s ironic most times the people that say these hurtful things also suffer from severe mental illness as well. Please stop with the fake caring. The world and so many people are messed up. You don’t really care at all. If you did instead of a FaceBook post you’d at least have the decency to call and check on a friend. You won’t though so stop being fake. Let’s be real and actually show compassion not just a FaceBook post. 💔💔💔
