I'm so sick of ignorant tw**s running around thinking they know everything, thinking that them voicing their emotional bull**** is actually worth anything. They all feed off of each other like parasites, getting all the attention they can. I have talked to and met people that are actually depressed. But recently there seems this weird fad has developed, it is suddenly 'cool' to be depressed because people realize they can get attention/sympathy for it and get let off for behaving like morons. Well I have a point I wish to say: everyone has their own issues. The world does not revolve around you. People out there that whinge for attention, making up these false statements about yourselves just to get attention. These people need a smack round the head. This whole cutting thing becoming a fad, what the Hell? What's better, is they then pretend to be one of the cutters that aren't following a fad. I've also noticed that suddenly if you're feeling sad for a couple of weeks you count as suffering from depression. That is not depression. That is feeling blue or upset, but given the right advice a person can quickily recover. Depression is when even after months and years the symptoms do not go. There are people out there who have real issues and have real problems in their lives. But they get ignored because some self-centered tw**s want to preoccupy everyone's thoughts with their fake pain. Depression isn't on the increase, immaturity is. To those of you who suffer from major depression/suicidal thoughts/mental illness: you are brave people and I hope things work out for you in the end. Unfortunately society isn't well equipped for helping you, but never give up. Because if you keep trying, you will eventually receive the support you need. To those of you that pretend to have these problems: go find something actually constructive/worthwhile to do with your time. You see, I do not have to tell people whether they are faking depression or not, they already know for themselves. If I offended anyone, apologies. Last thing I wanted to say. I thought in my life with the amount I help people all the time that my existance would be taken notice of. I haven't phoned my Father for a year for example, and he hasn't even noticed. I'm the kind of person who would go away forever, and even if people did notice I were gone they wouldn't care. If let's say right now I left this forum and killed myself, I garuntee I would not be noticed. The people that would be noticed are those that constantly vocalize their emotions in other people's threads, sometimes even manipulating topics so it turns round to them and their needs instead of helping the person who created the thread.
