Today, people are posting pictures of self inflicted wounds and flowers on their arms. Today, People are misusing mental illnesses as adjectives and throwing them around like confetti. (Jess looks so adorexic, Billy is so Bipolar, She is so crazy. And so on) Why are we romanticizing it? Why are we trying to make mental illness into something that is beautiful when it clearly isn’t? Our society is turning mental illness into something “cool” and “glamorous,” when it is the complete opposite.
