The problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.
Don’t ever feel bad for making a decision that upsets other people. You are not responsible for their happiness. You are responsible for your happiness.
The mentally ill literally aren’t allowed to have anything. They aren’t allowed to have their emotions, they aren’t allowed to have their struggles, they aren’t allowed to have their life views. BUT THE PEOPLE AROUND THE MENTALLY ILL OH THINK OF HOW THEY FEEL HAVING TO DEAL WITH THAT ALL THE TIME. IT MUST BE SO HARD ON THE PEOPLE AROUND THAT PERSON STRUGGLING WITH THEIR ILLNESS.
