having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. it’s the fear of failure but no urge to be productive, and it’s wanting friends while hating socializing. it’s like running a marathon with the willpower of a corpse because you want to get to the end but you also want to sleep and evaporate into the soil and become compost for snails and flowers because then at least you’re useful
im so SO sick and tired of that attitude that’s like ‘be happy with the small things they give you, stop fighting, god annoying sjw’ like the whole ‘it’s racist, but at least you have a woman character, you should be happy!!’ no. ???? no i won’t be ?? that’s not ?? representation ????? ‘tumblr won’t be happy until theres a black genderqueer person in a wheelchair” how abou t you eat an entire basket of bricks GOD GO D GO DDDDDDD
