A Strained Friendship


New Member
So i receive a message from a friend who i thought understood the psychology of depression as he has a degree in the subject and he recently come out with that i need to "Snap out of it".. and I don't know how to reply as I am feeling pretty annoyed/angry at his insensitivity!

Any suggestions?

Well that is just rude. The degree clearly did not help him understand what depression is. I myself wouldn't waste my time discussing the topic with that person.

I would ignore the comment even though its very insensitive. YOU have to be strong for yourself. People who suffer or have suffered depression understand what YOU are going through.

I would not take this comment to heart but try to forgive this person. At the end of the day as human beings we must try to get on with each other.

I'd go for the IGNORE unless you can afford to lose the friendship. Though they sound like a jerkoff.. maybe you can afford to lose it. Either way, good luck with that.
