"Follow your inner moonlight; don't hide the madness."
-Allen Ginsberg

 soul(s) searching

I hate when people say “You can choose to be happy” to someone with a mental illness.

No, you really cannot fucking choose to be happy. You can spend years trying to be happy and praying that if you fake it long enough that you eventually will be but it doesn’t work. All pretending to be happy does is exhaust you. Hiding the fact that you’re sick is exhausting. Hiding the reality you live with is like asking a bomb not to tick. Eventually you’re going to explode and all the sadness, darkness, and pain that you’ve been holding in is going to overwhelm you. 

Looking at a person with a mental illness and telling them to be happy is like telling a person with the stomach flu to stop vomiting and get over it already.
