Why is it, when you tell somebody you're a little depressed about something, they think they can cheer you up? And who told them you wanted to be cheered up, like its their job or something?

Can't somebody just say, "I sympathize" and fricking leave it at that?

Hit them. They won't try to make you happy again. Although, they probably won't talk to you again ever either......nevermind.....

I was talking to somebody not that long ago, and they said something like "Cheer up!" in response to me saying I was a little bummed, and I kind of went on a rant about how that was a dumb thing to say. Politely, mind you.

Oddly enough, I didn't get laid. Something about calling the other person an idiot. I have to write that down.

Not everybody wants or can be saved.

Yeah, here's to that. One of the things I value highly in a friend is the ability to let me be however I am, to stay with me through that, without needing to change me. I'm sure people mean well, but sometimes it's appropriate, useful, good for me to be upset. And "Cheer up!" can come across as "I can't accept you the way you are," or "I only want to be around you when you're happy," or "I can't/won't understand why you're unhappy," none of which is any good to me.
