If you look at it this way; Cherry blossoms are planted in graveyards because they need the nutrients from the rotting corpses underneath the ground. That’s why these trees are fully grown and pretty. From dead humans, pretty things will grow. And if you think about it, these dead bodies are in this tree, blossoming.
My parents often warned me that people on the internet could be lying about who they really are but I’ve found that the internet is the only place where people are truly themselves and in reality they lie about who they are offline.
this is so true it hurts
Apologies for the terrible image quality - I’m lacking scanner access at the minute so I had to take these photos on my phone
I was reading hyperbole and a half’s blog entry explaining their experience of depression and decided to make another sketchy comic based on my experiences with anxiety, which is another mental illness I think people tend to misunderstand quite frequently
Hopefully this will be of use to some people - whether they suffer from anxiety themselves or if they just want to know more about it
Anxiety sucks, in my experience it encompasses passionate self-loathing, inability to relate, and fear of other people.
I’ve gotten better (it was pretty bad) and I’m medicated now, but 2 psychiatrists didn’t help much and the first one gave my a deep found hatred of those kind of situations and my own weakness. Middle School and the first year of High School were especially hard for me. I felt very alone and disappointed but a lot of that resolved itself with friendship. I think that’s the most valuable thing anyone can have in that sort of situation.
Sounds like me..
