Advice for the oppressed/depressed

Folks, when you run into situations where you are literally talked over and not given enough space to finish a sentence, end the conversation immediately and keep it moving because a) they are not really interested in hearing what you have to say b) don’t really consider you as being reliable as a professional — or as an adult and c) already assume you to be problematic. Part of my healing is recognizing when some (even those you love and trust at times) view you as somehow flawed or a disappointment or just not “with it.” My mental health depends on me recognizing those moments that trigger anxiety or depression–or both. This is one of them. Learn to step away and decline to absorb other people’s issues.
