Do you ever ask yourself if you would trade your intelligence, talent, or beauty in order to be mentally healthy? In order to never experience that kind of pain again? I do, but I can never come up with the answer.

Before I am your daughter,
your sister,
your aunt, niece, or cousin,
I am my own person,
and I will not set fire to myself
to keep you warm.

"stop romanticizing mental illness!!!!!11"

translation: “stop talking about your experiences with mental illness in a way that doesn’t explicitly follow the extremely unrealistic standards I set for a mental illness…

That is not at all what people are saying. When they say “stop romanticizing mental illness”m they are saying to NOT act like it’s a beautiful thing. To treat mental illness what it really is, an illness that needs treatment. When you talk about your mental illness, that’s not romanticizing it. Romanticizing mental illness is calling self harm scars “battle scars” and saying things to make the illness appear beautiful.

I think we’re on the same side of things, just misunderstanding and using the wrong term.

No, you don’t understand at all and we are nowhere near on the same page.

If someone calls their self-harm scars “battle scars” then I’m not going to tell them to stop doing that because they’re clearly suffering from an illness that causes them to see their problems as beautiful or tragic or romantic. I thought my illness was tragically beautiful as well. Stop fucking telling mentally ill people what to think or what to say about their experiences. If you’re so concerned, then reach out to people who are saying these things and offer help.

im such a linguistics nerd so i just started thinking of when you start talking to someone new online and you have to learn all their personal tone indicators and what :) or any other smilie actually means to them and how after a while you can tell when something is wrong just because they type something differently than normal and we all just learn and adapt to this type of communication so quickly to make these wonderful online friendships and its kind of amazing

Over three years James Mollison photographed fans outside different concerts for his project The Disciples. As I photographed the project I began to see how the concerts became events for people to come together with surrogate ‘families’, a chance to relive their youth or try and be part of a scene that happened before they were born.”
