I fucking hate this post so much. SO MUCH. if you don’t fit the perfect definition of a disorder but you feel like something isn’t right you still deserve help. You still should go talk to someone and it is still serious. And if you are someone who has or has experienced any of these instead of throwing people under the bus how about you recognize that sometimes bigger issues start out with something small. A skipped meal. A bad week. A breakup. I get what this post is trying to do because I too get a little irritated when people say “omg I have ocd” when they wash their hands or “I’m so depressed” when they miss a show they wanted to see, but spreading a message like this isn’t the way to counter these issues and further alienates people who may not fit all the criteria for a specific disease or disorder but still needs help.
^^^^^^^^^^^ thank you!! I hate these kinda posts so much. like do people think that drug addicts were just extremely addicted as soon as they took one hit or whatever? No… they obviously experimented with drugs first. So if someone tries a drug once and feels like it may be something they are starting to crave and want.. That should still be taken very seriously! and Self harm is self harm not matter what! And anxiety is a general term for something everyone gets. anxiety disorder is different. So yes it actually is anxiety when you’re nervous about a test. and Eating Disorders are so complex and it often does start off with just skipping one meal. and if you ever purge on purpose it is still serious.. Even if it’s not the criteria of bulimia… there are other eating disorders. Insomnia is another complex one… Not sleeping for two nights can very well be insomnia. I mean the only things even close to being right on this text photo is the MPD and Schizophrenia one. Other than that… people really need to educate themselves.. Because all this shit is so serious. And posts like these can potentially make people who think their disorders “aren’t enough” get very triggered and they can actually end up getting worse and never reach out for help. We all need to really stop spreading posts like this around…
honestly, this is so important though. at 18, i had been depressed for so long that i was afraid of what would happen if it were to get treatment. “if this part of me goes away, who am i? will i still be the same me?” i was legitimately afraid of getting help for myself. your depression may shape you, but it doesn’t define you.
THIS IS SO FUCKING VALIDATING I CAN’T EVEN.
One of my posts from 3 months ago has randomly exploded. I’ve got 50 notes in 24 hours. I don’t know what’s happening. I’ve never had this before.
talk about perspective. shit.
I remember the first time I saw a map of Africa to scale. My jaw dropped.
In the Mercator Map, the world map we all are used to, the Northern Hemisphere is distorted to look bigger, so in comparison South America, parts of Asia, Australia and Africa look smaller.
That is why countries like Brazil and Argentina, amongst the biggest nations in the world, don’t look all that impressive. And why Africa looks the same as Greenland despite being 14 times bigger.
I just had a grown man tell me to “go make me a sandwich” as I was doing his pourover
I told him I didn’t understand what he meant because we’re a coffee shop, and he was like “oh it’s a joke” and I said I “didn’t get it” and he went “it’s funny because you’re a woman working in a kitchen”
And I just stared at him until he got how stupid he soundedlet them feel their ignorance burn into their souls

WWWWWWWWWWWWAAAA WOWEE WOWEE WOWWWWWWWW
I love that at first she thinks it’s misogynistic, and isn’t afraid to call him on it, but then we see him do what we almost never see a male superhero do : He admits he’s scared.
He’s not trying to belittle her, he’s not trying to tell her or even the kids that they’re not strong,
He’s trying to protect what he loves most because he’s terrified of losing them. The big, giant robot ripping apart BUILDINGS doesn’t scare him at all compared to losing what he loves.
I love this movie for so many reasons, but this scene is one of the bigger ones. A hero movie where the males are allowed to be emotional without appearing weak? A hero movie where females are allowed to be strong without being callous or woefully 2D? A hero movie where children are allowed to explore their potential instead of being shitty sidekicks?
