I’m constantly learning and changing for the better I’m excited to see what I’ll be like in the future.
People get really irritated by mental illness. “Just fucking get it together! Suck it up, man!” I had a breakdown, and a spiritual friend came to visit me in the psych ward. And they said, “You need to get out of here. Because this is the story you’re telling yourself. You know, Patch Adams has this great work-group camp where you can learn how to really celebrate life.”
It’s something people are so powerless over, and so often they want to make it your fault. It’s nobody’s fault. I started thinking of suicide when I was 10 years old—I can’t believe that that’s somebody’s fault. Like, “Oh, you’re just an attention getter.” Mental illness isn’t seen as an illness, it’s seen as a choice.
Yeah. I have a joke about how people don’t talk about mental illness the way they do other regular illnesses. “Well, apparently Jeff has cancer. Uh, I have cancer. We all have cancer. You go to chemotherapy you get it taken care of, am I right? You get back to work.” Or: “I was dating this chick, and three months in, she tells me that she wears glasses, and she’s been wearing contact lenses all this time. She needs help seeing. I was like, listen, I’m not into all that Western medicine shit. If you want to see, then work at it. Figure out how not to be so myopic. You know?”

if I owned a business id probably pay women MORE for having to juggle work w male feelings/behavior tbh//relevant whiney bad feminist posts
ever wonder how different your life would be if that one thing never happened
I’m such a whiner these days but I feel like when you stop complaining about problems and accept them is when they’ve won. but it’s also, like, really unhealthy
I’ve been working so much that I can’t even be coherent really these days unless it relates to work and I’m so tired that I barely have a filter it’s an awful mix and I think I’m weirding ppl out and becoming less human everday but it pays the bills
