Reblog if you also lost your teenage years to major depression or other mental illnesses and missed out on doing normal teenage things and also didn’t have friends lol
reasons my generation is so depressed:
- sleep deprivation due to early school start times
- the economy
- high tensions between different political/social/racial/etc groups
- technology/social media means constant updates on bad news
- politics, made worse by the aforementioned constant updates
- the state of the environment
- education as it is right now not preparing us sufficiently for the outside world
- pressure to grow up very quickly
- parenting/teaching/etc trends in the previous generation(s)
- competitiveness in schools, social media and other aspects of life
- the world in general that the last few generations have constructed for us
NOT reasons my generation is so depressed:
- we’re weak and lazy and we can’t get off our phones uwu
im a wreck
I would have put an end to my life – only art it was that withheld me, ah it seemed impossible to leave the world until I had produced all that I felt called upon me to produce, and so I endured this wretched existence….
Twenty years ago, mental health was a taboo topic. After all, opening up about mental illness is difficult enough for anyone, let alone an A-list actress launching a Hollywood career. Today, Ryder says she’s glad that she was so up front about depression and anxiety.
I like Winona Ryder & I hate how little she’s taken seriously bc of her mental illness when she was one of the first to open up about how toxic johnny depp was & how anti Semitic Mel Gibson was but pple literally called her cr*zy & threatened her career until she shut up.
Saying depression is all in your head is like saying a brain tumor is all in your head.
