Stop saying you have OCD because you’re neat.
Stop saying you’re anorexic because you’re on a diet.
Stop saying you’re bulimic because you threw up once.
Stop saying you’re depressed because you were sad.
Stop saying you’re bipolar because you had moodswings once.
Just fucking stop glorifying mental disorders in general it’s not that god damn hard.
Dear every person who says that a mental illness is not
a valid reason for not being able to attend school normally,
Say that to the counselor, the school nurse, the paramedics,
and the friend who walked me to the office on the day of my overdose.
Say that to the kids who saw me sleep through first and second period.
Say that to the boy who sleeps in every class.
Tell that to my teacher who had to talk me out
of suicide on a school night.
Tell that to my bio teacher who saw
me break down during a suicide prevention assembly.
Tell that to the housemates who have heard
me call the suicide hotlines.
Tell that to my freshman English teacher who tells
me I look so alive now in comparison to
how dead I looked freshman year.
Say that to any friend who has had to talk me out of suicide.
Say that to any friend who has had to calm me down
after an anxiety attack.
Say that to every friend and follower that has
come to me with thoughts of suicide.
Tell that to the kids who have failing grades because
they can’t focus, the ones who can’t make it through
a school night without having an anxiety attack,
the kids who sleep right when they get home and
straight on until morning, the ones who
have more breakdowns a day than meals a day,
the ones who have spent more time staring
at hospital walls than school hallways.
Tell that to the kids who cry every night.
Tell that to the teenagers in psychiatric wards and treatment centers.
Tell that to the family of someone who has just committed suicide.
Tell them that school is more important than their sanity.
I’m all for America wanting to help out other countries, but if we keep getting ourselves involved in their wars, we’re going to end up starting World War 3.
It bothers me when people say that if celebrities didn’t want nude pics spread around they shouldn’t take them. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PICTURES I WOULD TAKE IF MYSELF IF I LOOKED GOOD NAKED??? There is nothing wrong with taking pictures of yourself! Don’t shame people for loving their bodies. Don’t shame people at all.
"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."
"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."
"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."
"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."
