because I’m seeing this stuff around my dash

If you post “My depression is making me feel down” it’s not really attention seeking because you’re just saying a fact and that’s perfectly ok.

If you go saying “My depression is bad and I hate being alone someone talk to me” then yes you are attention seeking (which isn’t a bad thing) but you want people to talk to you.

Attention seeking isn’t bad and it’s perfectly fine to do either but there are ways to talk about your mental health without using attention seeking behavior and ways to go about it where you are attention seeking.
