So when I was about 5 years old my parents said they were gonna lock me in a tower so I turned around and said "But the tower never stopped Rapunzel from finding her Prince". Shout out out to 5 year old me for having a better come back than I do now -
Something just occurred to me. I wonder if people realize that when a relatively intelligent person, whom gets good grades, says they're depressed and one of the main causes is school, they. are. not. talking. about. the. school. itself. They're talking about the people.
For example, and this is the only time you'll ever hear me say this, but I'll admit I'm smart. I'm been in advanced classes my whole life, I get good grades and have struggled very minimally. I'm thankful that I have more knowledge than most people my age and I'm thankful that I understand the knowledge. But when I say I'm depressed and it's because of school, it isn't because I struggled at one point when I normally don't. It's because the people I attend school with, are toxic and terrible. When I'm on school break and am very much less social than when I'm at school, my severity of depression and anxiety goes down by miles. But yet, people fail to realize that smart people aren't depressed because of school, they're depressed because of the people at school. Take a hint 🏻
