Sometimes I think our problem is that we go into things with full force, too much heart, and too high hopes. We have an idealistic image of how things should go and when reality doesn’t match up we can’t adapt easily. Or maybe we can, but it is disappointing to do so. So many hopes and dreams, fantasies really, to never be actualized just seems sad to me. The future is full of possibility while the now is stiff and factual with not as much room to breathe. It would be one thing if our enjoyable moments were less further apart I suppose, but they aren’t so much of our time is spent in terror or in pain. So we put too much faith into the future and except it to be perfect because the present and the past have been so bad, but it doesn’t work that way and we have to learn that. The future can be good and better then now and still be far from perfect.
while im at at? here are some more things non-psychotic people REALLY need to stop fucking doing:
using the fucking “what if it was a mentally ill person’s fantasy the whole time?” trope.
equating psychosis to violence because guess what? Those two things are usually unrelated.
using psychosis as Angsty Ship Fuel Angst Because Psychotic People are Unworthy Of Love So It’s Angsty™
Using psychosis to make ur characters “~~Edgy~~”
Using psychosis to make ur plots “~~~Spicy~~~”
Treating psychosis like a joke.
Acting like there aren’t psychotic people out there, right now, consuming content, who are already demonized in their day to day lives over something they never asked for, things that are constantly misinterpreted to make some mediocre non-psychotic person’s media “”better”” and “”spookier”” for other mediocre non-psychotic nuerotypicals, who may see this shit and be further hurt by it.
acting like people don;t abuse psychotic people for their psychosis.
being fucking dicks about psychosis.
I encourage non psychotic people especially to reblog this.
