Controversial opinion on two "positive" posts.
Post number one is a tweet that states everyone deserves someone who is "good for your mental health" and "never stops trying". Now everyone deserves friends that are good for our mental health and push us forwards instead of holding us back. However the suggestion of people never stopping trying I had trouble with.
I would argue it is unreasonable to suggest people should never ever stop trying to bring someone up if they are in a hole. If you are giving and giving to someone who doesn't want to get better, or is unable, then you are giving so much emotional energy with no return. You cannot expect people to continue in this dynamic indefinitely. Similarly if you are giving and giving time and effort to someone and getting nothing back, that relationship is not good for you and I would argue is borderline toxic.
Another way of looking at this is part of my developments catalyst was losing relationships. Perhaps a change in situation and evidence of what they are losing as a result of not working on their mental health is what they need.
This tweet suggests the idea that trauma isn't something to be glorified and dismisses the idea of negative experiences being a source of strength.
However I would argue this is completely the incorrect mentality to have if you actually are trying to recover from trauma.
I would even argue this tweet encourages victimisation of oneself, which for me is an extremely troublesome mentality to encourage.
You have two choices on how to spin trauma and mental health. Either embrace it and learn from it, or wallow in pity at how the world has dealt you a stunted hand.
