People who say sadness doesn’t hurt physically apparently never experienced feeling so sad. I’ve felt it in my legs, my jaw, my head, my quivering lips, aching eyes, and my aching chest. It hurts my chest the most because it literally feels like your heart is in pain.
When will people finally realize the truth. Eating disorders won’t give you that ‘perfect bikini body’ for summer and make you a popular, happy, tanned, skinny girl. Depression won’t give you that perfect, cute boy who saves you. Mental illness is dark and lonely and is the last thing that should be glamorized in any way.
