Some people want to believe what they want to, regardless of the truth and reality, they are happier with the version they feel most comfortable with. They would rather be dismissive and put others in a box rather than taking the time to figure things out properly or see something with an open mind. I’ve heard so many things thrown together with the term ‘mental health’ that its becoming ridiculous. Sometimes it makes me so angry, because I know just what a serious issue it is and seeing it trivialised upsets me because I know too well how it can destroy lives.
So before you dismiss something, why not try to understand it better, outside of the box than forcing it within one? You could really learn something valuable.
