she dreamed of paradise

everytime she closed her eyes

180 notes

Mental health problems should be seen as an illness or an injury. If I had a broken leg you wouldn’t make me do a marathon and if I have anxiety you shouldn’t make me face all my fears in one day. Most people don’t choose to break their leg and most people don’t choose to have mental health disorders. Telling me to stop worrying won’t cure anxiety. Telling me I’m skinny won’t cure my anorexia and telling me to cheer up doesn’t miraculously make me better. Believe me when I say I wish it would.
