Talking to strangers

It was not very easy to start a conversation about mental health with total strangers. So I didn’t get in-depth into the question, such as what they would do if they felt sad or frustrated. The average answers I got so far are that spending time by themselves really helps, like watching fun videos, listening to music, and taking breaks from things that upset them. Then I had more in-depth conversations with my roommates and friends. This time our discussion quickly got into emotional neglect of Chinese parenting. I personally feel very connected to this topic. It’s a problem affecting so many young people while not many of them realize there’s something wrong.
