hey mimi, ive been feeling really down lately. ive never really known you super well or anything, but like were friends i guess right? haha. (ive seen you at past meets and weve hung out a little). im having some mom troubles which is giving me some depression problems and my depression is kinda an off/on thing. and ive been having thoughts about suicide and just UGGGH i dont know what to do.
i think this has been sitting here for a while, i’m so sorry that i didn’t answer earlier.. i’m so happy you came to me for help though, it’s never good to keep these things to yourself.
i have mom troubles too.. i don’t know what your mom is doing, but i do know that parents like to think they always know what’s best for their children and are often ignorant of the effect their behaviors have on them. they will say hurtful things thinking that it will be for the child’s benefit, that “tough love” is the only key to fix a situation, but in return it only eats away at the child and leaves them feeling like they’re not good enough.
but you are good enough. never let yourself feel as though you need to reach up to their standards. you know yourself better than anyone else does. you know your limitations and your faults, and to counter that you also know everything that’s great about you. your mother can’t always know how to help you, but you can. if you find that one day you’ve overcame even the tiniest obstacle then celebrate that. treat yourself nicely and make yourself happy. the happier you are the more people will notice. the more people notice you’re happy, the more they’ll stop seeing you as a negative person and they’ll stop trying to find the points that make you negative. if you surround yourself in positivity then it will be harder for people to bring you down.
i don’t really.. know if my thoughts got across right or if this helped you any. i hope it did. i really hope those thoughts go away.. please tell me if i can help you any further. i don’t want my friends to be sad
How would you feel if I said I sometimes ship partial genderbend ships? Like, I like seeing/RPing blackrom between male Karkat and female Equius, but not male Karkat and male Equius? I don't think it's the ONLY way a Karquius ship could work, just that's how I like it. But people have ripped into me for being homophobic for it, and I don't know.
I.. I can’t honestly say I really have an opinion on it! But as long as the nature of it is not homophobic then I don’t really see any harm in it
Hey, have you seen something called MotivationStuck?
yes!! i love the blog a lot, it does a good job of picking you up when you’re down 8’)
but seriously i think you're really cool and neat and i wish I could meet you in person! (and i mean i live somewhat close hint hint actually no wait that's creepy and weird)
Fhdjdjhf oh my god you big sweetheart I don’t think it’s creepy at all?? If you want I can give you my skype so we can chat and maybe one day we can hang out! ; v ;
I've tried suicide twice so far in my life and yeah, the occasional suicidal thought pops up now and then, and this douche comes to me acting like suicide can just be added as a random plot point just for the sake of sadness? Telling me not to get angry when someone draws detailed suicide just when they're having a minor bad day? The FUCK are they smoking?
obviously some hard shit because they’re out of their fucking mind, suicide is.. being desperate enough to escape from something that one would end their own life. that’s a life right there.. a whole human being with friends and family and a lifetime’s worth of stories to tell so saying that suicide is somethig???simple????? nO.
you qt with ur qt art and ur qt face gosh darn stop it
fhisdofSDKHIO I’MFHSD???? THANK YOU SO MUCH FRIEnd why is everyone being so sweet to me lately ahhfisdo
I feel like my thank yous aren’t giving enough definition to how.. grateful i am for your kindness omfhsdiogkfsdl
Help me help me help me I've been completely burned out on anger because I just got an anon that defends using suicide as a casual plot point for 'lovely sadness', who said 'suicide is just a thing that happens', and all other sorts of shit. Help.
okAY WOAH THAT IS NOT OKAY. Suicide is not something people can just take lightly I’m not even the one talking to them and I’m upset??? PLEASE YELL AT THEM FOR ME IT IS NOT JUST A THING THAT HAPPENS
I also said 'I could have the plague', 'I could be wearing a very unjaunty hat', and 'I could be one of those people who thinks you're not allowed to ship Signless with anyone other than Disciple' u3u Quality burns/jokes.
omfG that first one though
I think it's really just a matter of time before it goes too far. This is Tumblr, after all, and it's expected of people, even encouraged, to take something way too far.
If it does get to that point I’m sure the person running that blog will recognize that it makes us uncomfortable and take action against it, but for now I don’t mind it if people read our text as Neil Patrick Harris
This hsrheadcanons blog actually makes me really uncomfortable and creeped out despite my not being involved with the blog. I know it's supposed to be a joke, and it's nowhere near my business because I'm not a mod of hsr, but it doesn't really seem like an appropriate joke.
I mean it is kind of unsettling in the way that.. people are posting stuff about you?? Like, that’s kind of a foreign thing..
But so far it’s all either been really funny or really kind and we all don’t seem to mind it as long as it doesn’t.. step over boundaries, and I don’t think it has yet so we’re cool with it ; v ;
I guess it's kind of cathartic, in some small way, to get this out there. I'm not experiencing any sort of major psychological upheavals and revelations, but it does feel nice.
Ahah I don’t expect you to, but at least you’re telling them to somebody and I really admire that.
You really don't mind being used as a sounding board for my problems, do you?
As long as you don’t mind my input on what you tell me, I don’t mind giving you an ear! I’d rather you have somebody to tell them to than keeping it in.
I’m actually really flattered you’d tell me all this stuff about you, I really hope I’m making you feel better though;;
Yeah, I get that they're mine, and I'm not really writing for anyone but myself. But still... It's hard to feel good about my work sometimes unless people are constantly praising me? That's more than likely really selfish, wow. I just... I really do need praise and admiration.
It’s not selfish at all 8( I know how it feels.. you can’t really put self worth into yourself until somebody else places it there for you. Like you’re not good enough unless somebody who’s not you says you are?
But that way of thinking hurts a lot, doesn’t it? It’s so much better trying to love what you do because you did it and you’re proud of what you made, and it should only be a bonus that others feel the same.
Sometimes, but not always, when I'm writing about or thinking about my fantrolls, I feel like they're really awful? I've done a lot of work tweaking and developing their characters so that they would definitely be able to survive on Alternia without plot convenience keeping them alive like some of the canons. I feel like they suffer for it? Like i should make them cuter or sillier regardless of whether it makes sense? But people repeatedly keep telling me mine are some of the best so I dunno...
They’re your characters for a reason, friend! They’re yours to do with what you please, and if others tell you that they’re some of the best then that’s only reassuring you that you’re writing them well! They don’t need to be cute or silly to be a good character.
now we’re going on to wreck it ralph references to be incredibly sweet omfsdhgio thank u friend!! fhsd
