I let my girlfriend down today. She went through my phone and saw that I was messaging others. I enjoy attention but would never act on it. I feel like I've done the worst thing in the history of mankind. My chest is tight when I think about it. Went for a drive today and wondered if anyone would actually miss me if I crashed into a river or a brick wall. I continued to think that if I had crashed, there would be something remaining. Is it possible to just disappear? Like.. Pooof and Im gone.

If it was possible to disappear I would have done it a long time ago.
First of all, you haven’t done the worst thing possible. You haven’t even done the second worst thing possible. You were talking to other girls, you weren’t doing anything with them. What you did was still bad, but you could’ve done worse things.
Secondly, even if your girlfriend was the worst kind of mad she would miss you if you had crashed and died. Even if you had hurt yourself, she would be upset.







help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful


yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”

LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant??  Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO.  They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL.  They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.

Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse.  The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!!  Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest.  Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed.  They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE.  So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.

It’s back and adorable
