On most jobs, you have to have a smile on your face and an optimistic attitude all the time. I never smile in my selfies, because I am just so tired of putting on a mask. I hardly have the energy to smile and wave. When you have depression, the simplest task like taking a shower leaves you tired. However, ignorant fools who don't understand depression can't see this. Imagine a depressed person calling in sick because they're deep into their depression and have no mental strength to deal with the public. They're fired for taking too many days off. They're fired due to customers complaining about their attitude. The person has no energy to smile and wave for hours a day.
Look at this photo of me from 2017, now tell me you wouldn't feel unsure about an employee with this look on their face when you walk into a store. I look like I don't give a care in the world, right?
Sometimes yelling at the person will make them even worse. I have an example where I was yelled at and I starved myself as a result. Self-harm isn't always cutting your arms and legs. when I was in band my Jr. year, I was on the flag girls, I struggled on a certain move. The director lost his patience and yelled at me. That did not help. I wasn't messing up on purpose if that's why he did it. Also, I tried burning myself with my InStyler when a friend harshly rejected me because I like, liked him. I mean if you only like someone as a friend, what's wrong with ' I just wanna be friends.' or 'I am not ready for a relationship.' Him going off on me for having feelings was not necessary.
