Give me a break

I was listening to a podcast during my lunch break and it was 30 minutes of tips on how to put your mental health first. I don’t know what I was expecting but the whole thing left me with a bad taste in my mouth. 

How is it mental health professionals can sleep at night knowing that they are telling people like teenagers who are cutting themselves that part of their road to recovery is go watch a funny movie? That was one of this woman’s answers to keeping your sanity. How trite. 

She offered other ideas like journal writing and calling a friend too but I need actual assistance here. If I am going make a change and do better for myself I think I need something with a little more substance to it. I hate when things like that are the answers to the question of how to feel better. 

Ugh. So annoyed.
