When you think someone is sending out a cry for help, it would be a good idea to ask them so.
Nothing is ever just a cry for help.
A cry for help is a desperate last measure in most cases, it means that person is potentially facing crisis and needs someone or something to help them, to validate that it’s okay to not feel okay and that they are worthy of being alive.
So many people dismiss mental illness in this day and age and it could literally be the difference between life and death for some people.
If you think someone may be in crisis, ask them or tell someone close to them who may be able to help.
Be a nice human, you may just save someone’s life.
