You know, it’s so extremely easy to tell someone who is sad to ‘chin up and smile’, most people do indeed have a valid reason to feel like shit, but there’s people who just go throughout each day with that shitty, downgrading, sinking feeling and thousands of thoughts rushing through their mind at once. I tell you what it’s so fucking tiring. It slowly wears you out, not just mentally, even physically. I don’t sleep, I don’t have motivation for anything, I’m hurting, I am so exhausted so you just keep telling me to chin up and smile, one day I might.
