Oh god thank fucking christ.
I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.
so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!
Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done
The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.
Reblogging this again because most people don’t/never know how normal these thoughts are, and that can be a major source of stress. It’s okay. You’re okay. Just, you know, don’t follow through on that shit.
Who cares if he’s a cannibal, LOOK AT THAT GORGEOUS SWEATER MY GOD!
When I love, it’s fierce.
It’s my soul ripped
wide open and raw.
It’s my whole heart
It’s all I have and
everything I know,
handed over to you,
like a gift.
And I hope you
unwrap it gently."
"the beautiful ones… the popular ones… the guys that pick on you. Everyone. If you could hear what they’re feeling… the loneliness, the confusion. It looks quiet down there. It’s not."
Sometimes I wish I had watched Buffy as a teenager. I spent my highschool days being Jonathan and so, so angry that nobody else shared the pain I was in. I needed to see this. I needed to understand that lesson.

I compiled some personal tactics and crowd sourced DIY remedies for the sads (clinical term) into a mini comic! Enjoy xoxo
i like how kadotettu and I are in-depth discussing a fanfiction that I am absolutely never going to write
but we’re sitting here with thoughts such as, “How would his hospital bills be paid?” or “Probably the IRS would be on Grisha’s ass” or “BUT LEVI WOULD NEED TO BE PUT ON THE CASE, HE CAN’T JUST RANDOMLY SEARCH ANY BASEMENT HE WANTS BECAUSE HE HAS A BADGE”
this is what I talk about at 3am
what am I doing with my life
THIS IS IMPORTANT SHIT
THIS IS WHAT KEEPS US ALIVE
THINGS HAVE TO MAKE SENSE
