This is a PSA for the depressed, seasonally or otherwise. Depression happens at Christmastime, and it's okay Well, okay, it's not okay. But don't let anyone guilt you for not feeling "the holiday spirit." Bad days and weeks and months happen in the winter same as any other season. Mental illnesses do not take a holiday. If you're feeling depressed this holiday season, please talk to someone. And don't let anyone demonize you for it! You're allowed to struggle, no matter what holiday may be approaching. If you're feeling fine, don't guilt others for not feeling fine. Let people have grumpy days and blah days and appreciate that mental illnesses don't stop for Christmas. Be patient and supportive, and stop perpetuating the myth that December comes with automatic happiness.
