55 Harsh Truths You Have To Accept, No Matter How Awful They Seem

Here are a few harsh truths about the real world brought to you from Ask Reddit. 

43. You’re not responsible for anyone’s happiness.

44. No one wants to talk to a depressed person and depression actively makes you less desirable company to others.

That one hurts a lot, as someone who suffers constantly, I think I’ve often romanticized the idea that if people see that you’re not doing well, then maybe they’ll take the time to try and talk to you or brighten your day a bit. That’s not how it works though, they just don’t want to know. And it’s hard to blame them because it’s obviously not their problem.

That’s a particularly hard pill to swallow for me. The world doesn’t give a shit, it will move on without you.
