Instagram account @DisappointingAffirmations was created by Dave Tarnowski who is tired of rainbows-and-butterflies, everything-is-going-to-be-ok mantras. But don’t get it the wrong way – this account wasn’t created to bring you down. On the contrary, it’s trying to depict struggles with mental health in a raw and real way. For Dave, many of the disappointing affirmations show those who might not understand what it’s like to struggle with mental health how ludicrous some of the things they say can be – like telling someone to not cry when they are, in fact, already crying. He wants to point out that we all have feelings and we shouldn’t have to pretend otherwise. It’s better to deal with them honestly than overwhelm yourself with “positive vibes only” bullshit all day.

How sad and useless!
These made me laugh! Some are worthy of being on a bumper sticker.
The bathroom book “Daily Negations” by John Hall (of King Missile) is rather like this, but frequently more mind-bending.
This is the sort of nihilism I come here for! Bravo!

Perfectly stated in every one . Especially with 99% of the population suffering from some sort of mental illness or six.
