“There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. ”

– Desmond Tutu

Having a mental illness doesn’t mean “you can’t be happy and in a relationship!” Those are the words of @nbcsnl comedian @petedavidson who has spoken out after he heard rumours that people with borderline personality disorder, like himself, can’t be in a relationship. “It doesn’t mean that person makes the relationship toxic. I just think it’s fucked up to stigmatise people as crazy and say that they are unable to do stuff that anyone can do. It’s not their fault and it’s the wrong way for people to look at things. I may be crazy but at least I’m aware of it and not afraid to be honest about it and I’m not hiding behind a Twitter or Instagram account.” He continued, “Mental illness is not a joke, it’s a real thing. There’s kids out there killing themselves. And it’s fucking horrific. For all those struggling, I want you to know that I love you and I understand you and it is going to be okay. That’s all. Love to everyone else.” What are your thoughts on his very honest and human message? Share them below
