To this day, I still struggle with what is okay to disclose about myself in a social setting. What's the difference between a toxic person that everyone wants to cut ties from, and a mentally ill person who gets PSAs dedicated to them saying "end the stigma, reach out to them"? Like I feel there is a bitter irony there, we want to raise awareness and work to have better support systems. But at the same time, we have people saying they've had really bad experiences being friends or dating people with anxiety,depression, BPD, etc. Or maybe there is a difference between people who refuse to get help/better and people who do? Perhaps I should just say yes I have issues, but I try to keep a grounded perspective of life, myself, and the people I interact with.
