Mental Illness Isn’t Self-Centered

Depression is not selfish.

Anxiety is not rude.

Schizophrenia is not wrong.

Mental illness isn’t self-centered, any more than a broken leg or the flu is self-centered.

If your mental illness makes you feel guilty, review the definition of “illness” and try to treat yourself with the same respect and concern you would show to a cancer patient or a person with pneumonia.
