Hello. Name's Salem. As usual, my blog is what the inside of my head looks like.
Wow so I’m pretty sure the whole “your 20s are your ‘selfish’ years, you get to do everything you won’t really be able to do all that well in the following decades like travel, explore, make tons of friends, try lots of new things” is based on the expectation that everyone wants to have children. Because all this stuff can be done throughout someone’s life, should they have the resources and ability to set aside time for it (choosing parenthood can interfere with that). And the word “selfish” is being used in association with pursuing other wonderfully fulfilling and life-changing activities. Just the way it’s always used when discussing the lives of people who’ve not yet or never will become parents.

Except that I might be a little more miserable than I let on, because… well, that’s hard to tell people without worrying them.
"He said he’d cure your ills, but he didn’t and he never will."
"Am I still ill?"
Hm Guess I need to find some artists that I actually enjoy.
So far, I can only thing of one.
"Hit me my thesis is due in 12 hours and I haven’t started it"
"Hit me I have a final in an hour and I didn’t study"
"Hit me I’ve been on a 24 hour drinking binge and I’m invincible"
"Hit me. You’re a university vehicle and I’ll get free tuition."
"Hit me I feel like a failure anyway"

being a feminist is like trying to fix a giant hole in the wall and discovering that the entire wall is rotting and filled with termites and you have a lot more work to do than you thought you did
not all termites
The mentally ill are made to feel like burdens on the people around them. They are made to feel hated. They are made to feel less worthy than their neurotypical friends and family. Then people have the nerve to ask why they want to kill themselves, or why they feel so distraught and helpless?
But of course, whether they attempt, or succeed, everything is made about how much the family and friends cared about the victim, instead of their willful contribution to the abuse of the mentally ill.
THIS IS SO TRUE AND IT MAKES ME SO MAD
#those constant speeches about how ‘suicide is selfish’#you are the selfish ones who have no understanding of their struggle and don’t want to either#get off your fucking high horse#these people are in pain and your self righteousness just makes me sick#i have a lot of feelings
