"Sorry but depression for me isn’t smudged mascara and crying into a boy’s chest and acting romantic and reckless. It’s honestly just staring at the wall and not showering for days and not going out with friends and feeling so fucking disconnected from everything that I can barely breathe. It’s not pretty. It doesn’t have to be pretty. Stop trying to make a mental illness aesthetically pleasing, as if it’s something i should be proud of." —skinnymeme

"Do you love me enough that I may be weak with you? Everyone loves strength, but do you love me for my weakness? That is the real test." —Alain de Botton, Essays in Love #ToBeVulnerablyHonest

"I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy
because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that." —Robin Williams #ThingsThatMakeYouGoHmm

"notes on healing: the absence of sadness isn’t always progress, healing looks different on everyone, you can create your own closure, self-care doesn’t always feel good, self-harm is sometimes hard to notice, leave your pride at the door, have conversations with yourself daily, do not measure healing by the hurt you feel, it’s okay to ache, don’t rush through grief, sleep." —sheabutterbitch #LateNightThoughts
