I wish that there was a socially acceptable way to say, “I’m having a bad mental health day and need you to pay attention to me,” without alienating everyone.
or: “I’m having a bad mental health day and need to be on my own for a while so please don’t be mad if I cancel our plans on short notice.”
…you’re absolutely right.
At a real job I’d get a lunch break…
my feelings, every day.
A 37 year old human drinks cows breast milk every day, when studies show its not needed or healthy: “Oh yummy! Good for the bones.”
A 4 year old child drinks their mother’s breast milk, when studies show it immensely benefits the child: “OMFG THATS MOLESTATION!! EW GROSS STOP IT PUT HER IN JAIL.”
