Top 10 Worst Things to Say to a Depressed Person

If a person's depressed it's probably best to NOT say of the following things. I don't approve of any of the following items I'm just trying to make a point.

The Top Ten

1 Kill yourself!

If the person does kill himself, it's gonna be your fault obviously, because you made him do so - Neonco31

Doesn't matter if you're joking or not... depressed people take comments like that very seriously. So it increases the chance of them committing suicide which isn't a good thing. - SomePersonYouHate

Imagine if Gene Simmons saw this list - 445956

It's because he actually told depressed people to kill themselves - 445956

Um should I just not talk to them? - EliHbk

2 You're a freak!

Almost as bad as the other things on this list, if someone you know is depressed do not say this chances are you'll regret saying it afterwards. - SomePersonYouHate

3 You're worthless and what you do never matters

Harsh but also will probably make said person more depressed. - SomePersonYouHate

4 I don't care about you and your problems

Instead of making said person feel better it'll make them feel worse. - SomePersonYouHate

5 Stop being an attention whore/ drama whore!

No depressed person is a attention whore or drama whore it's a big stereotype that needs to die. - SomePersonYouHate

6 Go jump off a bridge!

Chances are they will if they hear someone saying that to them. - SomePersonYouHate

7 Stop moping around

This one best explains itself. - SomePersonYouHate

8 Stop being depressed

A depressed person can't stop being depressed right away same thing with cancer patients or people with general illnesses. - SomePersonYouHate

I would if I could

Depression isn’t one of those things you just “get over.” You don’t know what’s going on in that persons life - Randomator

9 You're just crying because you want attention!

Not true and like the last item it doesn't help at all. - SomePersonYouHate

Saying the other things just makes the depressed feel worse, but saying this is an ignorant, grave mistake.

You are no longer safe when you say this...
No longer... - SpectralOwl

10 Why can't you stop being depressed?

This nine times out of 10 is more likely to make said person feel worse than feel better. - SomePersonYouHate

The Contenders

11 Just think positively

Because telling someone to stop being depressed will definitely help them, no question - kempokid

12 You’re weak
13 Just hurry up and kill yourself so we don't have to look at you anymore

That's only going to hurt them instead of helping them. - SomePersonYouHate

14 Hey! Wanna hang out?

Saying nice things to a depressed person is not a good idea - 445956

15 You live such a good life! What do you have to be depressed about?

Yeah... saying this totally wouldn't backfire or anything... (Sarcasm.) - SomePersonYouHate

16 Cheer up

"Yeah, I'm just gonna magically feel better because you told me to"

Hey, it's worth a shot at least. - mattstat716

17 You have no reason to be depressed

"You're right, I have a reason to be pissed at your stupidity, though." - mattstat716
