I am tired of people implying that people posting that they’re upset is just them seeking attention. A lot of the times, no, they’re not! They just need to get it off their chest. But even when they ARE seeking attention, THERE’S A REASON FOR IT. It’s OKAY to need attention. It’s OKAY to need reassurance that you’re not a horrible human being who fucks everything up.

Acting like people who talk about how they’re feeling and how they hate themselves/are having a rough time/whatever is a bad thing creates a really awful stigma that leads to the people who do it second guessing themselves. Every time I post about being upset, it’s only after I’ve sat there for half an hour going ‘I shouldn’t post this but I need to talk to someone but everyone’s going to think I’m pathetic and whiny and looking for attention’ and that just feeds into my awful self-esteem and self-loathing.

Basically, it’s okay to need attention and reassurances when you’re upset and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
