destroy the notion that someone’s mental health is what makes them evil.
destroy the notion that mental illnesses make bad people.
destroy the notion that you can’t be an outright awful person without being mentally ill.
destroy the notion that neurotypical people can do no harm.
Just got this gem from my brother’s girlfriend
I will not diet. Fuck diets with your pre packaged food. Give me fresh fruit in a smoothie with a sunrise that lights the world on fire. Give me nuts and carbs and dairy. Give me salmon with rice and gravy. I’ve watched my mother suffer with diets for far too long. Give me a bike so I can see the world. It’ll come. If my body wants to lose weight then fine. But give me happiness. Watch as I feed my body love. Fuck your prepackaged food as I watch the sunset with hot chocolate and my love.
My co-worker’s puppy fell asleep on her desk. Not much work got done that day
Sometimes recovery is waking up early to write in coffee shops and practicing yoga and eating lots of fruit and chocolate and sometimes it’s staying in bed all day and hiding from the world until you can stop crying. All of this is okay. What’s important is that you take care of yourself no matter what kind of day you’re having.
it infuriates me when people tell me “lifes too short to not forgive people!” like NO lifes too short for me to continually allow abusive and manipulative behavior in my life and live in a constant state of anxiety bc I want to be “nice” or whatever
You can’t have one without the other.
You are allowed to grieve the years you lost to mental illness. You’re allowed to be mad that it happened to you. You’re allowed to pine after the person you might have been had it been different. But don’t let that get in the way of your growing into your new self and following a wholly new path for your life.
