you tried to talk about it once, afterwards. you named it and laid down until it was over. you named it and you watched people walk away from you. you named it and felt ashamed. you still said its name. — t.m.

i. smaller portion sizes are important. so try to only drink one bottle of whiskey before bed, rather than your usual two. ii. eat lots of vegetables! don’t even bother taking your medication; you’re sick because you don’t eat enough salad. iii. don’t forget (like you could, with every single person you encounter reminding you), exercise is key. you want to kill yourself because you don’t go jogging enough. when you get the urge to go and stand on the ledge of your roof, and jump…take the stairs! iv. don’t forget to put everything in perspective. remember, you can only be sad if you have it worse than every other person in the whole god damn world! don’t you remember? this is all one big competition about who life can fück over worse. v. the most important thing to remember is…just be better! your feelings are totally something that you can pick and choose. if you don’t want to be sad anymore, just stop being fücking sad! if you’re anxious, you just need to relax! because remember, friend, your depression is making everyone else around feel uncomfortable (and we mustn’t have that!), so you just have to be happy!

recovery is not a team sport. It’s a solitary distance run. It’s long. It’s exhausting and it’s lonely as hell. … The length of your recovery is determined by the extent of your injuries and is not always successful. No matter how hard we work at it, some wounds might never fully heal. You might have to adjust to a whole new way of living. Things may have changed too radically to ever go back to what they were. You might not even recognize yourself. It’s like you haven’t recovered anything at all. You’re a whole new person with a whole new life.

I don't know what came over me today, but I was suddenly reminded of this website. I used to come on here a few years ago when I was in the midst of dealing with depression and anxiety. Witty was my escape- I could say whatever I was feeling and no one would judge me. I was met with people who understood, and people that were here for me if I needed it. After years of not being on here, I'm posting this quote to say that it really does get better. Two years ago, every day was torturous, I was sad and miserable nearly all the time. I wanted to die so badly, and I saw no point in continuing to live whatsoever. I was extremely suicidal and dejected. Witty has changed since I was last here; the top quotes have 20 hearts instead of 1000, all my old friends are no longer on here, and the layout is completely different. But that's okay, because I have changed too. I am such a changed person from the severly depressed kid that used to come on here years ago. I cried looking back at my old quotes, remembering how I felt, but then I smiled because I have overcome so much and proved that it's possible for you to do it too. Stay strong, I love you. ♡
