"If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.”

"I don’t know why people think mental illness can be solved by snapping your fingers. You don’t go up to someone who has a broken arm and say, “fix yourself.” Mental illness is not something that is controlled, and that’s what some people in this world need to get through their thick skulls.”

"Don’t judge. What may feel like nothing more than a mosquito bite to one person may be a knife through the heart to another. So please, have some empathy.”
