no lie just do what the rest of us do and bottle that shit up - it's not like anyone actually cares or could help you if they did and all it does is make people's lives worse so yeah. kids get a pass but if you're an adult you should know better by now
I had to stare at this for five minutes to figure out that it's about that "don't drop your self-hate into casual conversations" post. I hope this is a troll who's trying to be passive aggressive about it, because getting from "boundaries are good actually" to this vat of ageist ableist asstwattery doesn't take a jump so much as a barrel roll.
For fucks sake, don't bottle it up, you're just going to end up a bitter self-victimizing asshole leaving a trail of emotional damage in your wake. It's not just that bottling it up will take a tremendous toll on you physically (you will end up with substance abuse problems, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, hypertension, diabetes and other metabolic issues, autoimmune diseases, acid reflux, gut problems that range from IBS to Inflamed Bowel Disease). It's also that you're going to learn to hurt yourself until you're in absolute agony. I know some of you are like "and then I'll just kill myself so what?", but trust me, it takes a very specific confluence of pain and desperation, energy, executive function and opportunity to even try, let alone go through with it successfully. Self-harm isn't an inevitable decline to suicide, it's a descent into a living hell from which suicide is a one in ten thousand escape hatch.
Things you can do instead of either bottling it up or dumping this shit on non-consenting parties - making Tumblr posts, journalling, posting and discussing your symptoms on online communities or forums, reaching out to friends using respectful scripts ("Hey, I'm feeling kinda crap. Do you have spoons to listen? You don't have to respond if you can't, I just need to vent to someone. Totally cool if you're not up to it though." "Hey, I'm feeling really bad, can I just ramble at you on chat? You don't have to read it."), joining Discords with channels dedicated to venting and personal problems (I've yet to find even fan servers that don't have one), CREATING THINGS (so much of tumblr's poetry and prose communities are fuelled by depressed people, my friend writes and composes the sweetest music when she's sad, another makes short films and draws comics), creating and joining informal therapy groups (my friends and I didn't have access to formal health care or peer support for years, so we made a dedicated WhatsApp group to talk about anything and everything, it got us through the worst times of our lives), learning how to express, acknowledge, self-validate and defuse negative thoughts, and never giving up on finding professional help (I've gone through hell for over ten years to find the one doctor and therapist who wouldn't fuck me up more, and I'm so glad I stuck with it because it's made a sea change in my quality of life).
As for this whole "adults should know better" thing people on this website like to weaponize against older folks - do you seriously think you wake up on your 18th, 21st or 25th birthday magically mature and teflon-coated? And regardless of age, the communities and groups within which you socialize have a huge influence on you. That is literally what we call "culture". I joined this website in my mid-20s, when most of its demographic was 14 to 21. I was deeply mentally ill, isolated and vulnerable and very naive because I was kept at home for nearly my whole adult life because of disability and cultural norms. Tumblr was the primary way I had to learn and engage and interact with people, and a result, I developed the same tendency for black and white thinking, reactive yelling and anxiety-driven anger that characterized this website, and ended up with the same aggravated trauma from Tumblr discourse. I don't know who tf came up with that "brain is fully developed at 24" pop sci bullshit, but that isn't even a little how neuropsychology works, and especially, none of these models apply to the traumatized and neurodiverse.
You might have a lot more fuck ups under your belt and even learned better from some of them, but your feelings are going to feel the exact same way at age 45 as they do right now. Maybe older people can dreg up some compassion for younger ones, but that doesn't mean they don't have the same capacity to hurt and damage us.
We all have the same responsibility to do no harm, both to ourselves and other people and we all have the right to empathy and compassion, especially towards our own selves. Not losing sight of that is how we stay human and decent.
Edit: this was in my drafts for a long time, but I'm finally posting it.

Tender Mind - Chapter 22
Yandere Geralt of Rivia x Reader Rated: M Masterlist
How did I end up here? How? The room was steamy and warm, yet I was shaking. Not out of coldness, but nervousness. I was in a bathroom. In GERALT’S bathroom, just a not big enough towel covering my nude form. After a bit of persuasion, I agreed to take a bath with him after he brought me to his room.
“She isn’t feeling good.”
Was all he said to his friends before he took me from my seat and disappeared from their sight in a matter of seconds. When we got to his room, he insisted on me taking a hot and supposedly relaxing bath with him. Thought I’m not sure just how much I will be able to relax knowing all that separated my skin from touching his is this thin cloth I am currently clutching to my chest as if my life depended on it.
“You got to relax those stiff shoulders a bit.”
Is what he said. So now I am here, mostly naked in Geralt’s bathroom, standing in front of a hot bath debating with myself if I shouldn’t just run for my room. But looking at it from any angle, any way, it would be impossible. Not a change I could outrun him, and even if I did, he would just bring me back here. Sigh. Well, nothing to lose I guess? Little by little, as my body disappeared under the warm surface, I weaved out s sigh of content. It’s been a while since I had the luxury of a peaceful bath.
“Enjoying it much?”
I quickly jerked to a sitting position, a bit of water spilling out from my sudden movements, but as soon as I turned to Geralt, I spun 180 degrees completely with my back to him, covering my face. His chuckle told me he must have had a smirk all over his face. What I have seen shall never be unseen now! My poor virgin eyes! Geralt’s nude body, with the smallest towel I have ever seen covering only him MOST private parts was not something I was prepared for. The water level rose up, so I knew he joined me in. He soon pulled my back to press against his well-toned chest… Wait, wait, what the hey (Y/N)??! Stop thinking about that! His hot breath hit my naked skin.
“Nervous?”
He ran his hands thru my hair, making it wet.
“N-not at all.”
I curled up a bit, to feel more secure. He chuckled.
“You know I’m a Witcher. I can hear your heart, which is pounding, like a liar’s.”
His hand slid from my hair to my cheeks, neck, between my chest, where it stayed. I suddenly felt tightness in my upper body area, my breathing hitched.
“Are you scared?”

Haha i bet you’ll turn off anon asks soon just face the facts you suck and your ocs suck and your drawing sucks and your writing sucks also your probably faking your OCD
I’ve had constant non-stop bullying, all because I said something when I didn’t mean it. It’s like people want me to die. I’m not faking mental illnesses, or anything. I promise. There’s definitely way more of these. I’ve never been this bullied online before. I just won’t give in to you. I’ve cried enough, and I’m sorry beyond words. My wording just wasn’t the best.
Get back on Instagram, and leave me alone. I suffer enough. Why do you think I’m not a frequent poster? I’m always mentally drained. If you hate me because of a mistake, you’re the problem. I’m not even attracted to real people. Why do you think I used an animation term?

To all trauma survivors: you have survived so much, a lot of it by yourself, have kept yourself alive and going, persisted through the worst parts of it all, and continue to find the courage and strength to face one day and one difficult thing after the next.
That's a huge achievement.
Society just doesn't consider things like that achievements, but society is wrong about so many things.
Trauma survivors, by virtue of surviving and persisting, are inherently successful. You are the living embodiment of a success story. You've kept yourself alive through some of the darkest things a person can go through and have managed to find joy, peace, and fulfilment still in life, and be bold enough to believe that you can still find more.
That in itself is success. You are successful. Extremely. The world still has you in it because of all your hard work and determination and that is what success looks like. You still manage to find light and love and hope and peace after everything you've been through and that is what success looks like.
You don't need to accomplish anything else in order to be successful. You've already achieved some of the most important successes any person can.

Watch "Rickey Smiley Saying What Someone Needs To Say" on YouTube

"What Happened To Our Decency?" ~Rickey Smiley
https://youtu.be/uiFXWkhYlAw/
Rickey Smiley, addresses Health & Social issues, PARENTING, family, gang violence, Community Fear.
Back in the day, Tupac Shakur, a Mega-popular American recording artist and Gun Violence Homicide victim, shared his definition for THUGLIFE, as well as his belief that it impacts EVERYONE of ALL AGES AND BACKGROUNDS >>>
*"The HATE U Give Little Infants Fvvks EVERYONE"* ~Tupac Shakur, Childhood Trauma (ACEs) Victim
Apparently the HATE young Tupac (born 1971) experienced or witnessed, inspired him to not only create his often misinterpreted THUGLIFE Child Neglect, Abuse, Abandonment and Maltreatment AWARENESS PREVENTION PSA...
...Tupac chose to tattoo THUGLIFE in bold letters across his ONCE neglected, hungry "hurting" belly.
Indicating to me he was pretty serious about PREVENTING HATE.
Tupac explains THUGLIFE:

https://cubeupload.com/im/EndHate/TupacPreventTHUGLIFE.png
The GOOD NEWS:
According to SCIENTIFIC Medical Research, Tupac was 💯 correct!
Early Brain Child Development SCIENTIST, Dr. Bruce D. Perry MD, PhD, spills the beans to Childhood Trauma (ACEs) victim Oprah Winfrey, offering SCIENTIFIC medical research explaining why children who grow up witnessing or experiencing violence, chaos, uncertainty, inconsistency or neglect are more vulnerable, having much HIGHER RATES of risk for mental health problems, much higher rates of risk for doing poorly in school or just functioning in the world:

Learn why 'SOULutions' oriented Child Abuse Awareness, Education & PREVENTION Advocate, California Surgeon General Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, MD, FAAP, MPH, Founder of the 'Center for Youth Wellness', believes a NATIONAL MOVEMENT is required to educate citizens about our Nation's Child Care Public Health CRISIS:

The SAD NEWS:
Recognizing many American citizens of African descent support Democratic Party values and ideology, as well as a COMMUNITY CODE OF SILENCE rule and SNITCHES GET STITCHES policy, I am beyond heartbroken knowing Joe 'Unity' Biden and Kamala Harris, our Nation's Chief Elected Problem Solvers, will NEVER, EVER, NOT IN A MILLION YEARS, address the primary reason for untold numbers of American children and teens of African descent SUFFERING, THRU NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, a traumatic childhood upbringing fraught with Pain, Struggles, Hardships, Uncertainty, Community Violence and FEAR!

"We need more people who CARE; you know what I'm saying? We need more women, mothers, fathers, we need more of that..." ~Tupac Shakur
If a CARING, responsible fellow American or foreign-born citizen has developed a plan for PREVENTING American children and teens from SUFFERING, THRU NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, a traumatic, potential life scarring childhood upbringing fraught with Struggles, Pain, Hardships, Depression, Uncertainty, Sorrow, Demeaning Government Handouts, Resentment, Sadness, Intra-Racial Discrimination, Community Violence and FEAR...
...I look forward to learning their SOLUTION for ending POVERTY, largely created by our Nation's unhealthy, potential life scarring Culture of Generational Child Neglect, Abuse and Maltreatment evolving from America's multi-generational, ignorant, once legal Culture Of Racism.

Sometimes I wonder what would happen after I kill myself?
Would it be announced on the news?
Who would go to my funeral?
Who would even actually care?
No
What would people say about me?
“it was inevitable”
“Fucking loser”
“Good riddance”
...
Would it make the people that tormented me feel guilty?
No They Wouldn’t But I Wish It Would

Hello. With all due respect, *who is raising and nurturing perfectly healthy newborns* maturing into apparent emotionally troubled, sometimes violent teen and adult citizens engaging in family, people and Community harming suic!d@l homicidal antisocial behaviors...as well as socializing children maturing into apparent emotionally troubled teens and adult citizens largely lacking EMPATHY, compassion and respect for their peaceful neighbors?

Book Review | Corridors of Death
Book Review | Corridors of Death
Picture Credit: Coverd_Books on Instagram Reading Corridors of Death was saddening. It is truly embarrassing and sad that black children in South Africa are faced with the trauma of having to navigate white-owned and controlled spaces that constantly reject their blackness, unless they conform or bow down to whiteness. And that is because whites still own most of the resources in post-democratic…
