They should also acknowledge the depressed teen. Why? it takes courage to get out of the house with that mental disability and hair issue. And it was brave for her to ask a non related person to do stuff to her hair
That hairstylist has such a pure heart. I wish there were more people like her in the world. Instead of telling others to move on or shake the depression off, doing something to make others feel better, just being there, or just being nice makes a great difference. I salute this woman.
People that fake depression don't have any respect. Depression is a mental health issue. If you fake depression then please get some help because there must be something wrong with you if you fake a mental health issue that takes over a 1000 life's a year.
I feel like if anyone is to shave their head, it should be a liberation by will, not a forced act. Ever. It could be either a wholesome, beneficial experience, or make things 100% worse depending on the person’s mindset. So this warmed my heart. ❤️ I hope that girl is doing better.
Wtf is wrong with this shit generation? Depression, suicide, zero work ethic, give me a break. Get your shit together, get off of your fucking phones and social media and start living your life. Teenagers are depressed because they are spoiled fucking rotten.
Ignorance means ‘lack of knowledge, or understanding’. You can’t call me ignorant if I’m trying to spread knowledge and understanding. And me trying to do that is the PROBLEM with this generation?Just stop creating problems that don’t exist. It’s useless.
Ok, I am not, in any way, shape, or form, a hater. I need to clear the air around your head. I’m not trying to fight or get attention. I understand that there is a LOT of negativity in the world. But I need you to see the other side. First of all, you can’t call the new generation a ‘shit generation’ if you created it. That’s like making a lamp that doesn’t work, and then blaming it on the light bulb you used. It doesn’t make sense. And secondly, it isn’t fair to judge the work ethic, of an entire generation, based on a small percentage of it(that are mentally ill). And Social Media is living your life. It’s how a lot of people can kick off their careers. Phones are how people connect with life. Just think of all the people who earn thousands of dollars from this platform alone. And lastly, teens are not depressed because they’re spoiled. It is either genetic, or caused by a depressing life event. Anyways, I’m sorry for this essay. I felt obliged to help you understand a bit more of what your writing about. I hope you got something from this, and(hopefully) have a more positive outlook on life.
(Again, not throwin’ shade, just shedding light)
I would also like to point out, however, that the inability to get out of bed is not the only valid measure of the severity of depression. You can still drag yourself out of bed and go to school or work every single day but that doesn’t mean that your depression is any less legitimate or potentially profound
Try going to school in the hood with 43 people to a class sharing books having to photo copy pages that we had to pay for teacher writes what to do down then walks out the class sometimes doesn't even come back when the bell rings. No college prep courses art music weight room but we had armed police although there was NEVER a shooting SMH compared to us she has it made smh math only went to algebra 2😒 miss me with this b.s. She's privileged still depressed and people wonder what's wrong with the black community smfh
Sometimes it seems like people get depressed for no reason but people have things happen to them that aren’t clear to the public. You never know what is going on inside a beings head. Never assume things about people based on classification. Things aren’t always how they seem
Can the "this is what depression actually looks like" comments please stop? Depression is different for everyone and can happen at any age. I was depressed for many years and survived a very serious suicide attempt because thankfully someone found me. I showered every day. I got dressed and carried on like normal every day. You never know what someone is going through, and just because someone doesn't experience depression as this woman did doesn't mean they cannot be in extreme pain.
I laugh to not cry in front of people and they say I'm faking depression because I try not to cry. I had two people ask me if I was okay. Those two people make me feel as though it was pity and they hate me. I feel like my entire class hates me.
When I was in school this happened to me, not to this severity but it was really bad and stayed in the shape of a bun.
The most damaging part of it for me was that no one, not my parents friends or teachers, tried to help me despite my hygiene being so bad.
I’m so glad that poor girl was given some help, it must’ve been terrifying having to ask for it.
I eventually found the strength to unmatt my hair myself, took me a whole night and a lot of time unmatting again afterwards to not fully relapse, it just makes me so sad I had to do it alone.
"Teenage girls with depression this"
"Teenage girl with depression that"
Everyone always talks about the girls that cant live for shit, while all the boys who feel worthless just get ignored or just not getting looked at or something...
I really wish I had a hairstylist like this when I shaved my head...I felt exactly like her...I felt completely worthless and depressed and didn’t care about anything anymore. I went to a hair salon and told the woman to just shave my hair (this was about a year ago). She did as I told and I could just see in her eyes that she new I didn’t really want to. I saw the pain in her eyes as she cut all of my hair. Now I kind of regret shaving my hair. I really wish I hadn’t act according to my melancholic thoughts and feelings.
I really honor and respect this woman.
I'm so glad she did this for her. When I get depressed severely I start to neglect my needs. I don't shower. I cry, and I get so sad I don't eat. Onetime I was so depressed and hated everything. I wanted to shave my head because I didn't think it meant anything and I felt useless and I just wanted it gone. I honestly think that it is a big warning sign. I wanted to take my life during that time. And luckily my mother and father talked me out of shaving my head. Because I honestly think It would have motivated me to take my life. When I think about it, I just honestly wanted one more thing that could make me not back down from my decision. I still get depressed, but luckily I have generous parents, and I have a psychiatrist. Not everyone has those though. So I hope if you feel like me, please drink some water and try to find someone to talk to. Or if you notice someone having the behavior I described. Try to talk to them and make it a point to ask them questions or just try to include them in something.
And this girl was probably depressed because of either school or a medical condition and like some things are super hard in school pointlessly hard like "sarah had 93 tomatoes divided by 1/2 multiplied by 7 add -0.3 and she walked a dog in 2 hours how many llamas did she raise?" Like wtf
Me: *has depression because of years of mental abuse from parents*
Random girl at school:Omg my mom didn't buy me the new iPhone I have depression
Me:I'm about to beat your ass-
I've seriously heard this from students in my grade its absolutely ridiculous.
This happened to me when I was a teen. The hair stylist laughed and insulted me. Everyone looked at me like some alien creature. I ran off and put my beanie back on, went home, cried, shaved it off and my depression got even worse. Nice to see that not everyone is that heartless.
Depression sucks man. I mean i still have it but i remember when i was at such a low point where i didn't want to shower, i didn't want to brush my teeth, i would start wearing long sleeve shirts in hopes no one saw my cuts, depression destroys you. Knowing that someone out there like this hairdresser will literally spend all their time on you because they care can just make you tear up. Even if you think they're lying
These comments talking about how "see this is real depression" and invalidating those 7th graders who go through the phase, those are litteraly just warning sign. I went through that cringy emo cutting phase as well and then later on in life I actually tried to kill myself and got diagnosed with depression,anxiety, and bipolar.
I suffer with severe depression. Sometimes I don’t get out of bed for days. Sometimes I don’t eat for days. Sometimes I wonder if it’s really worth being here. Fuck all y’all who don’t think depression is real.
For example, an American fashion company might source fabric in China and have the clothes manufactured in Vietnam, finished in Italy, and shipped to a warehouse in the United States for distribution to retail outlets internationally. The fashion industry has long been one of the largest employers in the United States, and it remains so in the 21st century. However, employment declined considerably as production increasingly moved overseas, especially to China. Because data on the fashion industry typically are reported for national economies and expressed in terms of the industry’s many separate sectors, aggregate figures for world production of textiles and clothing are difficult to obtain . However, by any measure, the industry accounts for a significant share of world economic output.
The fashion industry consists of four levels: the production of raw materials, principally fibres and textiles but also leather and fur; the production of fashion goods by designers, manufacturers, contractors, and others; retail sales; and various forms of advertising and promotion. These levels consist of many separate but interdependent sectors, all of which are devoted to the goal of satisfying consumer demand for apparel under conditions that enable participants in the industry to operate at a profit.
