I understand mental disorders are beyond hard, but can we please be kinder to the people who love those that suffering from them.
It seems half the posts I see talking about these issues are telling people “you love me and try to comfort me the wrong way”.
Loving someone who is sick, mentally or physically is very hard and a little understanding could would be appreciated.
