Waarom kijk je zo boos?

It worries me.
It scares me.

There needs to be more awareness for mental health issues.
I never realised that something as small, so innocent seeming could attribute to a person’s wellbeing. In Dutch we often say, “why do you look so angry?” or “Can you smile for once?”. It’s a comment on your looks. It could imply you’re not good enough the way you are. So, realising what you say to someone, could improve someone’s life. After all, mental illness does not show on your face.
