Top 10 Worst Things to Say to a Depressed PersonSomePersonYouHate 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
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
If the person does kill himself, it's gonna be your fault obviously, because you made him do so - Neonco31
If you say that then chances are they will actually do it - Randomator
Um should I just not talk to them? - EliHbkV 3 Comments
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
Harsh but also will probably make said person more depressed. - SomePersonYouHate
Instead of making said person feel better it'll make them feel worse. - SomePersonYouHate
No depressed person is a attention whore or drama whore it's a big stereotype that needs to die. - SomePersonYouHate
They’re not being a attention whore. They’re crying out for help.
Chances are they will if they hear someone saying that to them. - SomePersonYouHate
This one best explains itself. - SomePersonYouHate
A depressed person can't stop being depressed right away same thing with cancer patients or people with general illnesses. - SomePersonYouHate
Homeless people should just buy a home.
Sick people should just stop being sick.
People with asthma should just breathe.
Starving people should just eat.
Dead people should just be alive.
Wow, I can stop being depressed by just being happy? I never thought of that! Thank you for curing all of my problems ever! - Atham
I would if I could
That’s like telling someone with cancer to just stop having it.V 1 Comment
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
This nine times out of 10 is more likely to make said person feel worse than feel better. - SomePersonYouHate
