at 3:33 pm | By

It’s unfortunate that depression and sadness is everywhere. We all have our bad days, but some of us are afflicted with a mental disorder that’s a lot more than just a funk. A lot of friends and family are usually uncomfortable, confused, or  around people facing  because they don’t know how to support them – walking on eggshells makes both parties uncomfortable.

John Saddington who is a “human” and “hacker” had made this comic that is going viral around social media. His most shared post is “How To: Care for Little Sad Person,” which gives advice to how to comfort someone you know who is down. I encourage you to check out his website that is really interesting, insightful and educational.
