Oh wow Anyways, so I asked you guys on Instagram I just II paid following Raja Lizzy page on Instagram might get you panic at the disco tickets might get you twenty one pilots Tickets might clear your skin might grow your crops Results have been saying following. Jesse page has been improving people’s lives clearing. So many people’s skin Sorry in in sleep Oh Anyways, I really loved this idea a lot of you guys an Instagram story We’re saying I should do one about fifty things to not say to people with mental illness and some of these Work for certain mental illnesses don’t work for other ones I tried to keep them kind of general so that any person that has suffered with mental illness to any extent can Relate or even if you’ve just had symptoms Even if you’ve just had anxious thought depressive thoughts even if you haven’t had full-on anxiety or depression this will still relate to you So if you want to share this, that’d be cool support some mental health related content. That’d be really cool. I love you This is for all of you. Yeah, I want to protect and deunan Good cover I’m gonna get into it Kiki. I Sound really mean in these videos, but I promise I’m a Hufflepuff It’s a Hogwarts house Harry Potter reference If you don’t understand that which if you don’t understand that you should watch the movies and read the books. Okay? I’m cool I’m gonna do like a quick flashback, but I used to make Harry Potter videos Yeah, love that You’re like a nerd Jesse cousin come out recently but a lot of other Jesse’s came out Gay jokes. Okay. I Love to cope with things. All right Things know to say to someone with mental illness also this is a very serious video obviously and it’s addressing things that are very serious and Obviously, I’m gonna be little theatrical sometimes but I take all this very seriously and it’s kind of like a coping mechanism for me And I feel like it could help a lot of other people to have that respect But take with this as you will love you. Okay, snap out of it. You’re faking it. Just be happy cuz it’s that easy Anxious just stop worrying. Thanks for the solution Karen. You’re so depressing. Take a chill pill. It’ll be fine Just get over. It just have a positive attitude. Yep, but easy see I went from doing this to this We love that just get over it. You’re being dramatic Drama in high school music how Sorry, it’s gloomy physical reference. You just want attention I love having attention on me when I’m super uncomfortable when I’m anxious Yep, a hundred percent what I want also I got a lot of these from you guys in your stories and a lot of them are relatively similar to try to Differentiate but a lot of them use a lot of the same words instead Wow. Why are you so dramatic? Why are you sad your life is so amazing. You have no reason to be feeling this way Just get over it. If you don’t think about it, it will go away That isn’t even a real thing, but I see you smiling all the time. So it must be fake logical Honestly, everyone is social anxiety. You’re not special Have you tried yoga or meditation? Which by the way can help people but sometimes you don’t want suggestion You know, well, maybe if you go out more you just need some fresh air just cheer up You’re not special. Stop trying to be special. You’re just lazy Stop being rude and talk to people because you saying that totally just cancels out social anxiety again. Thanks, Karen There are a lot of really nice Karen’s out there I’ll do a villain named Ursula Thanks Ursula my videos are weird subscribe if you’re new, it doesn’t get any less weird, it’s just a face. Oh, so you have a Mental illness the quotations. No, I heard that people like you were crazy Why can’t you just do it? It’s so easy. I get nervous, too Sometimes you don’t try That’s hard when you’re trying and because something’s easy for someone else. They invalidate it That bugs me a lot Rightfully so as well because no one knows what’s going on in your brain No one knows how difficult this thing is for you. That might be super easy for someone else. That is a big part of him By speaker That’s a big part of mental illness and challenging it If you don’t struggle with that mental illness You’re not gonna understand what that person is going through and how difficult something that’s super easy for you might be for them Just trying to protect my people and even when you have the same mental illness as someone else diagnosis It doesn’t matter because so many people experience that differently and that’s why other people have different coping mechanisms We’ll rant sorry for my people gotta educate the kids You’re a handful to deal with just stop thinking those thoughts. It’s that easy Ursula oh God, this bugs me just the whole appearance thing. You don’t look depressed Why do you cry so much you have? No reason at all to be depressed. You always just make excuses You can choose how you feel. Maybe if you just went outside and got away from your screen It’s just popular right now to be depressed boy Yet sounds like a great great hobby to take on But you don’t look like you have an eating disorder, haha shame what a mood – negative you just take things way too seriously But you look healthy. We don’t invite you out because you kind of just always bring the mood down You’re way too young to have one. You don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t like you and you’re depressing I prefer the other you when you grow up You’ll realize all this is so stupid cuz right now Nothing that we feel is valid everything. We think is stupid exactly Thanks Ursula Pinkett we spoke seriously with Ursula Poe making valid points, and I’m so proud of them and then Earth’s a lot honestly, who cares? You need to stop holding on to the past. Just anything ever make you happy And C so a lot of these were taken from anonymous Anecdotes from you guys as well as my own personal situations and going through this I’m a very empathetic person and I fell for you Obviously some of these things don’t offend certain people and some of these things do I’m a highly sensitive person Unfortunately, but it also has its benefits, you know I feel like because of that like I’m pretty kind to other people because I’m so sensitive myself, and I’m like That wouldn’t make me cry I feel like the fact of the matter is sometimes people don’t realize they’re being Offensive and sometimes they do which is really wrong If you’re saying this intentionally, but it’s also if you’re hurt by these things that’s fully valid as well Even if the person doesn’t know it’s important looking out for you that you say these things Don’t make you feel comfortable. You’re allowed to communicate that can just be like, oh, hey like thing You said kind of offended me which I don’t do sometimes I like to internalize things But that’s something I’m working on and that’s why I wanted to do this video because I feel like a lot of you guys Relate to that. I feel like no matter what you’re going through You probably identify with at least one of these especially, you know Even something like that’s not real how to defend you all and send a lot of love your way Comment something positive that happened today. I’ll tell you something positive Tom Holland Posted a pic with Robert Downey jr. And it just cleared my skin a little I Think I’m really funny sometimes. I love you. I love all my people. I’m gonna feature your pages on the screen Yes, I’m Jesse page Hahahaha, I need a new slogan Your posts on the screen proud of you all hope this made someone feel At least like they’re not alone and their struggle or that they can stand up for themselves or just validated in any certain way Yeah, I love you. Okey Bye Hannah, Montana’s a great anime I’ve got so many problems

  1. when i finally told my mum about my issues after five years of hiding them, the next day she bought me a book titled “how to be happy”, threw it at me and told me to read it, and never spoke about it again. we love supportive parents

  2. I can't honestly say that I know what it's like to have severe depression, anxiety, or any other mental illness so what might keep me from being way down in the dumps might not help you but I do have a couple tips:
    Get enough sleep. I realized that when I am deprived of adequate sleep, it makes anything negative 10 times worse.
    Have caring family and/or friends. Being surrounded by kind, positive people, or others who are going through what you are can make you feel much better about yourself.

  3. Could you maybe do another video on what to say to people if they say these things to you? Like a comeback or something? xxx

  4. My friend said
    "I can see how sister is really sad but idk how you are"
    thanks for coming to my TED talk.

    Basically 15👌

  5. my crush was doing that thing on instagram story like "dm me a number and i will say my likes and dislikes about you" i dmed 24. Likes:idk Dislikes:Depressive

  6. the messed up thing is i say most of theses things to myself, cause i don't voice how i feel about things very much so i think i kinda invalidate my own feelings

  7. Why do people always suspect your faking depression
    When the reality is your faking your happiness

  8. the intro made me smile my first real smile today, thank you so much. i’ve had a really rough day. i love you jessie💗

  9. That “haha same,what a mood!” really hit home,I literally cannot have a serious conversation with any of my friends about this topic because all they say is “me” “same” “mood”

  10. I have a eating disorder and I thought I had it under control what felt like 2 days ago but now I cant even take a picture of myself, like I physically cant hit the button and it shocked me. I'm trying to get better but it's so difficult and you are helping me through It and i thank you so much. The thing is I dont look like a lot of other people with eating disorders so that one sentence really resonates with me. Thank you so much for what you do!❤❤

  11. stream k-12 and watch the movie on youtube 🤧🥺✨🧚🏽‍♀️

  12. im sorry but i cant look away from your amazing eyelaSHES GIRL WHAT AND UR EYEBROWS LOOKING HELLA SHARP I LOVE HOW TALENTED YOU ARE WITH MAKEUP

  13. Quick mental health book recommendation: (Don’t) Call Me Crazy. It’s 33 stories from 33 different people with their experience with mental health! I really liked it, and to be honest, it was quite inspiring! Good read everyone,

  14. A song that reminds me of this whole situation is "Inescapable You" by The Moderates. You really have to pay attention to the lyrics because they are so deep and overall amazing. It plays on two perspectives. The verses being someone from the outside shaming the other for their mental illness and the chorus telling the outsider what it does to them and their struggle. I don't explain it very well but if you listen to it, it won't upset you.

  15. also my friend has been telling me to just “be happy” “stop being so negative” “i don’t like how you’re so sad and negative” like pls stop, i really am trying :((
    and i’m so jealous of people who can just become friends or talk to other people so easily:( i wish i could do that but i never find the confidence to and i get really self conscious and eye contact can make me uncomfortable:(((

  16. It always makes me heart swell when you say 'I love you' and 'protecting my children' cuz I never feel like I deserve to love or protect myself, so thank you ❤️❤️

    And now I'm crying 😂😂

  17. Genuinely heard at least 40 of these. I am so sensitive too Jessie, and lots of things hurt me and some people think I overthink a lot and should just stop being so dramatic but its like NO Ursula im sorry it aint that easy :))) especially if someone with the same anxiety as I say those things im like ?? how the hell can you say that when you know how it feels? I cry so much its crazy. I just want to be nice to people and be kind but sometimes when im not doing good I tend to snap and just seem mad and sometimes selfish but seriously I never mean to hurt anyone and I am SO far from selfish , I care too much about others and nothing for myself 😅

  18. but I promise I'm a huffle Puff
    you should go watch the movies and read the books

    I actually just finished the first book, and decided to watch this for a break (I read to calm me down when in anxious)

  19. Something that I hate soooo much is when someone is talking about their struggles with mental illness with you, and once their done you start to share your feelings as well, and they basically say that because their life and mental illness is so much worse than yours, that your feelings aren't valid. Its like saying because someone else owns a cruise ship and you own a fishing boat that your fishing boat doesn't float in the water. Like wtf its still a boat.

  20. This is so accurate my dude omg also a new video would be rad as a 50 things TO say to people with mental illnesses like education and support wise bc a lot of people could use that too but omg I love everything you do so like do anything and it’ll be amazing

  21. “But I see you smiling all the time, so it must be fake”

    C’mon smiles can also be fake! And in many cases people show how they really are when they are alone!

  22. My dad would also throw the lazy one at me and my ex-boyfriend would always tell me to just stop thinking about these things :/ I don't resent either tho because it can be difficult for people without mental illnesses to understand.

  23. Also, it's okay to research questions that might be offensive. If your asking a person make sure they understand your just curious, not trying to be offensive. Just letting y'all know. 💟💛💙

  24. Just got home from an 11 hour treatment day at a day program for my ED, depression and anxiety, and this is what I need. You are a true light in this dark world and you just make me smile. Thanks for always being a voice for the voiceless and an advocate for those of us fighting these battles! Love you, JP!

  25. Dad: "You should say Good Morning or Good Afternoon to people If you don't say it people will consider you as a rude person." "Just talk to people you are almost 14." "It's so easy" "Do it yourself. Go talk to her." "Why are you so pessimistic." "Stop being negative."

    Social Anxiety and Depression

  26. Oh my god, I hate being called dramatic. Like, I definitely am dramatic, but not when I'm pacing around my house hyperventilating because I cant find my shoes and feel like I'm gonna DIE

  27. Okay Jessie so you said you could cut a b*** that hurts me… um, my classmates all know that I’m getting over a phase of many depressing thoughts and suicidal thoughts, but they still make fun of me. They say I’m faking it. They say it’s for attention. It hurts because I’m going through a lot right now, and they even make fun of my best friend (she’s a bi icon and watches you btw). What do I do?

  28. Something good that happened to me today:

    I got to see my best friend during class this morning even though we share no classes! We did a book talk and met with people we didn't have classes with and it was super fun!

    Write one good thing that happened to you today in the comments!

  29. Hey you! Yeah you, remember to drink your water and orange juice, and eat some food if you're hungry, even if you dont want to!! Remember YOU are worth it! It's not narcissistic, or selfish ! Its only narcissistic if you put your wants before other needs!! Remember i love you!!! ❤💛💙💚💛💚💙❤💛💚💙❤❤💛💚💙❤💛💚💙💛❤💗💖💕💞💓💞💛💚💙💗❤💙💚💙❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤💕❤💕💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤❤💕💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕❤💕

  30. Hi I'm Emmy and I am lasbian . Oslo social anxiety,anxiety, anger issue's, family issue's, stomach problems and my life is 😈 .

  31. I tried telling my mom that I was depressed but she said “you don’t have depression unless you sleep and cry all day”
    Im not even joking

  32. My moms favorite line is:
    Get over it you need to get out more. It is your fault you spend too much time by yourself.
    As you can see I have a lot of fun explaining mental illness👍

  33. Something positive that recently happened to me:

    · i went to Hot Topic with my mom and sister, and we were looking through the pins they had up near the cash register, and my mom pointed out a couple that said "Love Wins" and "Equality Includes Everyone" and my mom and i were talking about it (cus even though i haven't came out, my mom makes it known she is supportive as h*ck) and the cash register worker chimes in and goes "Yeah im really glad they got those! They recently got pronoun pins and im glad they got they/them ones too!" And then they showed us theirs and the whole interaction was so h*cking wholesomeeeee and i hope they're doing okay 😀


  34. I'd like to take the time to say I absolutely love both your hair, and your channel! This along with a few other videos have gotten me through quite a bit. As for something positive to comment, make someone a mixtape to show your appreciation for them 🙂

  35. So, I’ve struggled with social anxiety/anxiety in general, and some things that were said here are told to me a lot. Knowing that other people are told that kinda. . Makes me feel better? Knowing I’m not alone? ʅ(◞‿◟)ʃ
    Sorry if this comment bothered you okbye-

  36. My brother constantly tells me I’m “being a sook” when I can’t cope in social situations. Also when I started seeing a psychiatrist he told me I just want attention and I need to just get over it. It makes me really mad but I’m not allowed to tell him the anxiety and depression comes mostly from my ptsd from when I was sexually abused for months when I was 5. (Sorry I just needed to rant for a sec lol)

  37. we love the Jessie page fandom

    Thank you so much for making these videos! I love you so much!! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
    We stan a beautiful, gay father!

  38. I have an extensive pedigree for my mental illness. I keep my guard up when I interact with other people, but sometimes they hit a nerve. It makes me understand better what I am doing to them. I'm not offensive on purpose, but anxiety drives me to set up barriers between others and me. It's fortunate that I have a pretty good ability to keep myself entertained when I am alone.

  39. Ok. no, I hate the social anxiety stuff. If You dont have the disorder, dont say you do. "Oh im just so anxious i cant talk to people its too hard!" Thats being an introvert. Fuck you go away you don't have anxiety.

  40. One of my “friends” found out that I had depression and told me that it was “all in my head”.

    She also found out I was gay that night then outed me to my whole friend group…

    She moved to Portugal so yayyyy
