LPT: Never downplay other people’s suffering just because “you/others have it worse”. Different people perceive trauma/pain differently and they deserve to feel however they feel towards it.

There’s always someone who has to *one up* you. Those people are exhausting to be around.


Agree in parts.. I will never judge someone who is down but if they don’t accept help and just want to stay down I honestly lose patience..


I feel like there’s people who act that they are suffering, but only want attention, it depends on the circumtances though


Also. Dont let this reason make you feel like you aren’t worth the help you need either.


I agree. But you have to be careful… if you sympathize and tell them that their problem really is as bad as it seems, how can you then motivate them to face it?
