What they say:

What they really mean:

Just snap out of it!

You're starting to annoy me...

Pull yourself out of it!

I'm just feigning sympathy for you but I could really care less.

I wish there was something I could do..

I wish there was something I could do to make you stop whining.

Maybe you should talk to someone.

Maybe you should leave me alone and go bother someone else.

Did you take your meds?

You're much easier to be around when you're asleep.

"I call this the "Western Dismissal"--this takes place in our society when folks really don't want to hear what you have to say about what you feel in your soul so they tell you to go to a shrink, therefore, they wash their hands of the situation."
