I just want to preface this post and say I have nothing against anyone who is working through mental health issues or am I trying to offend them. You have your own battles to fight and that's okay.
I've noticed that recently there have been a lot of social media posts about dating people with mental health issues (eg. post like "dating someone who understands ur mental health is soo important. there's humans who will make u feel terrible for things u can't or don't know how to control yet"). I feel that posts like this don't understand the impact it can have on the other person in the relationship.
As someone who has been in a two-year relationship where I was the emotional dumpster for my former partner, I felt insanely guilty for even wanting to break up with them because I couldn't continue to support them in their mental health journey. My former partner would often blame for me not being understanding or patient enough. They snapped at me on multiple occasions when I was talking about my day and my work team and how fun my day at work was because it made them feel more depressed that their work team wasn't as close. Later in the relationship, I had learnt to only ask about how their day went but never share my own, in fear of not being supportive of their mental health.
Now I know that not everyone with mental health issues will be like my former partner, but posts on social media perpetuate the stigma that YOU'RE the unempathetic/uncaring/non-supportive one if you can't understand your partner's mental health.
It's not true. You're not a bad person for wanting to break up with them. It's okay to break up with your partner if they're being toxic. Being with someone who is going through mental health issues is draining and it's okay to break up with your partner if their mental health is too much for you. It's okay to not be an emotional dumpster for your partner. Please remember that you're a person too. You have your limits and your own mental health to take care of. It's okay to break up with someone with mental health issues and it's okay to break up with someone because of their mental health issues.
