I get so worried for all you people on Tumblr, especially you teenagers, because I see some of the most popular text posts going around that everyone seems to relate to are like huge signs of depression and/or other mental illnesses. Like come here and sit down and let’s talk about how you should not feel like an utter shitbag for not being able to focus on your homework and how you’re going to anyway and what we can do about it or how your apathy at your bad grades even while you’re freaking out about everything is totally understandable and here I made you some tea let’s talk.
And I get so upset any time I see a post that says Tumblr promotes procrastination and doing poorly in school and everything because no. We don’t promote it. We’re just not going to shame people because there are a bunch of people on here who do see those signs of depression and we’re sure as hell going to make sure all you little Tumblr babies are not alone, because maybe we didn’t have Tumblr to tell us that when we were their age.
So if you ever (you being my followers or anyone who happens to see this post) need to talk to me about how you’re feeling, especially if you think you might have depression and/or social anxiety (the two things I have), then talk to me on here, or hell, I’ll probably give you my Skype or something so we can message more easily on there.
Just know you don’t have to go through it alone, friends.

Death being a great motivator, again!
- You are stronger than you realise.
- You are crueller than you realise.
- The smallest words will break your heart.
- You will change. You’re not the same person you were three years ago. You’re not even the same person you were three minutes ago and that’s okay. Especially if you don’t like the person you were three minutes ago.
- People come and go. Some are cigarette breaks, others are forest fires.
- You won’t like your name until you hear someone say it in their sleep.
- You’ll forget your email password but ten years from now you’ll still remember the number of steps up to his flat.
- You don’t have to open the curtains if you don’t want to.
- Never stop yourself texting someone. If you love them at 4 a.m., tell them. If you still love them at 9.30 a.m., tell them again.
- Make sure you have a safe place. Whether it’s the kitchen floor or the Travel section of a bookshop, just make sure you have a safe place.
- You will be scared of all kinds of things, of spiders and clowns and eating alone, but your biggest fear will be that people will see you the way you see yourself.
- Sometimes, looking at someone will be like looking into the sun. Sometimes someone will look at you like you are the sun. Wait for it.
- You will learn how to sleep alone, how to avoid the cold corners but still fill a bed.
- Always be friends with the broken people. They know how to survive.
- You can love someone and hate them, all at once. You can miss them so much you ache but still ignore your phone when they call.
- You are good at something, whether it’s making someone laugh or remembering their birthday. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that these things don’t matter.
- You will always be hungry for love. Always. Even when someone is asleep next to you you’ll envy the pillow touching their cheek and the sheet hiding their skin.
- Loneliness is nothing to do with how many people are around you but how many of them understand you.
- People say I love you all the time. Even when they say, ‘Why didn’t you call me back?’ or ‘He’s an asshole.’ Make sure you’re listening.
- You will be okay.
- You will be okay.
