hi uh please stop messaging people with asks like “can we be friends”
because let me tell u: that rarely works
u wanna be friends w a popular writer/artist? well first step back and look at why u wanna be friends w them because if ur doing it for the exposure or bc u wanna me friends w one persons More Popular friends - fuck off!
if u wanna be friends bc they seem cool or because u have things in common? cool! send them asks off anon or message them if they’re comfortable w it
but also if ur message/ask involves endless praise and self-deprecation, consider the following:
don’t send it
artists/writers are people too and idolizing them isn’t the way to become friends w them, thank u
This is kind of random but I just got really stressed out and want to talk about something I feel is important.
If you have depression or any other mental illness/condition that affects your daily life and can make it hard to function, please try to at least brush your teeth. Bare minimum. When even that’s too much I sometimes will just swish around some mouthwash when I piss or something. Anything.
Depression really fucked up my mouth and now it hurts to eat/drink most things and my dental bills are high because of how neglectful I got during particularly bad episodes when I was younger. Teeth can’t repair or replace themselves, so take care of them as best you can. If not just for the health aspect of it, keeping up your dental hygiene could save you from a lot of financial stress in the future.
