I’m really fed up with our generation’s misconception that pain can only be felt by people who are constantly hurting. For some reason, you can only be truly upset if you’re a young person with anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, or any other disorders that fall into that category. Your emotions are only valid if you’re a tortured soul, if you self-harm, or if you’re struggling through a tough time in your life. Don’t even try to tell me that isn’t how some people fucking view it, especially here on Tumblr.
Everyone has a valid reason to feel the way they do. They do not need to justify their emotions by the situation they are in, by their identity, or by the things that affect their personal lives. Everyone’s emotions matter, and don’t you fucking forget that.
