written by Franz Kafka, from The Blue Octavo Notebooks
depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain that can’t be cured by telling someone you love them. you can positively influence this person and you can make them happy but you can’t fix them in the same sense that you can’t cure cancer by making someone smile.
written by Ernest Hemingway
There is a poorly written novel stuck in my throat. Filled with stories that cut deeper than the paper.
I need to move out and it needs to happen soon! I can’t be here anymore.
People: "I mean, I'm not homophobic or anything because I have gay friends but I just don't support gay marriage. "
People: "I'm not a feminist, I'm an equalist. Feminists don't want equal rights, they want special rights. "
People: "I love my pet more than anything and I fight for animal rights everyday. *Orders a plate of lamb shish kebab* "
People: "I've been depressed too and I went through the EXACT same things you are right now, so take my advice because I know better. "
Me: "*Goes back home, locks door, turns off the lights, gets under bed* I'm never leaving here, ever again."
I feel so incredibly vile. I need to take better care of myself.

make that anyone between the ages of 18 and 35 - trust me on this.
What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:
- I am unable to do that
- I am too stressed out to do that
- I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
- My body will physically not allow me to do that
- I am on the verge of a panic attack
- I cannot do that
What people hear:
- I am unwilling to do that
- I am just shy
- I am overreacting
- I am lazy
- I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
- I need a push
- I don’t want to do that
