    there is a big difference between someone having a rough day and needing to vent and someone constantly making woe is me status updates.

    The lack of empathy in this thread is amazing.

    I never once mentioned my anxiety or depression on FB ever. It's too personal a topic for me.
    Meee too..

    i have selective empathy.

    im empathetic to legitimate issues, but i also have a good bull sh** detector.

    if people regularily make "poor me" fb status updates then i just assume they are starved of attention.

    as previous people have already said, you can usually tell the difference between a genuine "im having a sh*t week" post and a person who frequently writes statuses like "my life is over, where is the razor blade"

    i have sympathy and empathy for people who express legitimate concerns and i offer advice, guidance and comfort.

    Agree.

    I don't bother responding to statuses that twice a day post "omg life is so hard I hate everything. Life sucks :'(" and then when you ask what's wrong it's just "oh nothing" or "can't be bothered going to work, I have a headache" as a response.

    If my normally happy friend posts that she's feeling sad today, I comment or pm and ask what's wrong.

    I don't fall all over myself to lather others with affection if they're just being overdramatic or complaining about how much life sucks because they spent all their money on the pub and now they can't afford to buy a new tv.

    But I'm 100% there and ready to support and help if someone genuinely needs a hand.
