except for number 8.
if you cannot handle someone’s feelings it is okay to admit that and to leave. You do not need to be there for the long haul, taking care of someone with depression can be draining and traumatic and you need to put your health first. If you can’t handle someone you never have to.
everything else in there is great and I needed those steps but the one thing no one told me was that I didn’t have to be there and I never had to take care of anyone if I couldn’t
A relationship should never feel impossible. Someone’s mental health shouldn’t compromise yours.
actually fuck number 8.
