~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~HELLO FRIENDS!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I would like to welcome you all to my super special self-care masterpost for all of you super special cuties out there! Unfortunately, it’s common to dislike ourselves and feel a little lower than usual. When that happens, it can be very difficult for us to acknowledge our worth! But never fear my darlings, because here are many ways to look after yourself, even if you’re feeling a little down. Best wishes and lots of love! ♥♥♥

Dealing with self harm 

Dealing with loneliness and break-ups

Had a hard day?

Fuck this.

Fuck this post so much.

Do not tell me
you’re best friend
would not sit in at your lunch table
for three fucking days
just staring blankly at your old seat
wishing that you were there
to fill the space with laughter.

Do not tell me
your younger brother
would not break down
in the middle of class
because you guys started talking about
your favorite type of subject
in school.

Do not tell me
your mother
would not stare into the mirror
with trembling lips
wishing she could be
bringing you home from the hospital
rather than having to escort you away
in a casket to the nearest graveyard.

Do not tell me
your father
would not begin working
the night shifts
to distract himself
of the silence at home
because you’re not up
until the ungodly hours of the night
talking to what’s-his/her-face
on the phone
because you guys are so in love.

Do not tell me
your boyfriend/girlfriend
would not go into your room
and put on the last hoodie you wore
trying to desperately imprint
your sent onto their skin
so they never forget your smell.

Do not tell me
your friends
would not stare blankly
at the gymnasium wall
after the principal has announced
your death
to the entire school
making no sound
trying to convince themselves
this is just another one of
your impractical jokes.

Do NOT fucking TELL ME
this bullshit line
of how the stars would still appear
the sun would still come out
the earth would still rotate
and the seasons will still change
because without YOU
you lil beautiful piece of human being
none of these people will want
ANY of that to happen.

So yes.

Fuck this.

Fuck this post so much.

No one ever talks about Borderline Personality Disorder. I’m not okay with that.

Tumblr has a tendency to gloss over some of the mental illnesses and disorders that are a lot more difficult to explain with a cute little comic, and that are seen as threatening to neurotypicals. I’m not okay with that.

I’ve never see anything on schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, depersonalization disorder, antisocial personality disorder, dissociative personality disorder, or anything of the sort that doesn’t fit in with depression or depression. The disorders that are seen as ‘dangerous’ and are the ones constantly demonized by the media.

No one’s going to stop the stigmatization of mental illness and disorders by continuing to rant on about depression and anxiety because those aren’t the ones considered dangerous and are the most easily understood ones.

And that makes me really fucking angry.
