My blogs are almost always book related, but I’m changing it up a little this time. Today is going to be a bit of advice. You may or may not want it. That’s the nice thing about this technology stuff, you don’t have to read it if you don’t want to. 🙂
Okay, so my quick words of advice is for anyone that deals with someone that struggles with depression. Note: he/she, her/him can be substituted as needed. It’s not just females dealing with depression/anxiety.
After she snaps at you and then apologizes and tells you she’s dealing with depression, DON’T do the following:
- Tell her that her attitude just ruined the progress you were making in your relationship.
- Call her selfish.
- Tell her you deserve a better explanation, chances are she can’t give you one because she doesn’t know herself. Just be thankful she’s not blaming you and that she’s apologizing and trying to recover.
- Text bomb her telling her how pissed you are.
If you expect her to get over it when you’ve had a bad day and been pissy, then you should be able to forgive her instead of causing an argument to continue for days.
So, bottom line, my advice is to either leave her alone, or actually help. Don’t offer to help and then push her over the edge.
