I wrote a whole rant about not understanding why people get on social media sites saying stuff like “no one cares about me, I hate my life, I want to die” but then whenever anyone comments on it they change their tune to “it’s nothing, I’m okay, everything’s fine” and in the process I realized I basically do the same thing.

I’m not one to go on Facebook or Twitter or whatever and say it outright like some people do, but if I’m having a bad day and the mask cracks and someone catches a glimpse of the depression/anxiety that I try so hard to hide and asks me if I’m okay, “it’s nothing, I’m okay, everything’s fine.”

I’m learning that everyone’s demons act differently, even if they go by the same name.
