Romanticizing pain

Dear artists, writers, whatever.

Please don’t romanticize pain.

please don’t make it look edgy or cool to have a mental illness

please don’t make it attractive to have depression

don’t people think it’s hot for your character to be partially insane

because none of these things are easy to go through

and none of these things are beautiful

You wouldn’t romanticize war

so don’t do it to the ones going on in our minds.
