Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.
Do NOT out anyone.
this is also a less important point, but still worth noting: DO NOT “come out” as an ally. don’t you dare.
just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time
it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness
This strip is to be taken into context with depression comix #173 and #174 featuring the same character, who has been threatened with suicide for leaving. What I wanted to illustrate is how these things can wound people. Naturally, this is not a depiction of everyone who suffers from depression and those around them, but this type of situation does happen enough to warrant exposition.
I introduced this character because a lot of comics about depression are focused solely on the person suffering, and I wanted a thread about the suffering of those on the periphery, because it’s not only difficult to live with depression, it’s difficult to live with someone who has depression, albeit in a different way.
Bolded emphasis mine, as is the following opinion, of course…
I’ve been on both sides of this equation, and I honestly think it’s more exhausting to live with someone who is depressed than it it is to actually be depressed. I admit this as someone who is himself bipolar — when lost inside our own heads we can be extremely passive-aggressive, manipulative, capricious, defensive, and often climb on the proverbial cross and crucify ourselves as martyrs. We often tell the person dealing with us most intimately that we’re “walking on eggshells” around them, but that’s usually bullshit — they’re the ones who actually have to walk on eggshells and bend over backwards trying not to do or say the “wrong thing.” And the guilt. The guilt and anxiety and genuine worry our lovers and friends and family members carry is, at times, debilitating.
Tumblr is all too often about how to treat a depressive person properly. It rarely gives credence or proper attention to those souls who brave our stormy waters and wade in hip deep. We often unconsciously demand that they be nothing short of paragons. Try being that for a day, and see how long you can do it, as well as how much it takes out of you.
I’ve received some heat for this strip on various social networks so I’m grateful for your addition. Thank you.
I agree with the sentiment that living with someone who has depression is more difficult than actually having depression. But that could be my depressed mind talking. And this is why it’s so hard for me to be around people, because I know it’s taxing on others.
On another note, anyone who threatens suicide for leaving is ABUSIVE.
I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
Dedicated to my fuckstick tour director from Italy that was hellbent against technology.
