It is okay to give people attention, too.


Sometimes the attention is what they need to get help


Yeah bad advice, bad life pro tip. Most people dont do things just for attention. Its normally like no one believes them that they’re having an issue and then they breakdown. “That’s weird. You dont act Bipolar.” *Has visible symptoms of a serious mental conditions and probably needs help* “Just ignore them, they only want attention* This is some outdated boomer bullshit


I feel like we’re seeing a lot of posts like this here lately – someone really just coming here to complain about something someone did to them by making up a “tip” about it.
