"Others only seem to see two types of mental illness. Those who have “completely lost it” and those who are pretending, enviable because they can get out of things. They don’t see how truly desperate these people are to escape. I’ve tried to find experimental treatments, trials, to join from horse tranquilizers to brain surgery. “That’s ridiculous - you don’t need that, don’t be silly, you’re just a little sad.”
This stigma affects the people who actually suffer from these conditions. Especially because after awhile - we start to believe it’s true. We believe we must be faking. We believe that maybe we should and could just “snap out of it.” We believe that we are weak for getting or accepting help. So on top of everything else, we put off getting help, and hide our conditions. We don’t want anyone else to know because they might think we are weak. We don’t want to accept to ourselves that we are that weak and couldn’t just deal with stuff on our own like everyone else. The disease lies to us and on top of that we have others agreeing with it. And so it’s hard for us to decide which voice to listen to. Who is right. Especially since we know everything could change it in a second."
"It’s so strange that autumn is so beautiful; yet everything is dying."
the fact that a girl being a feminist is a turn off to a lot of guys is just further proof that sexism exists they’re literally saying they don’t want a girl who requires respect because that’s just no fun
