JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T SELF-HARM DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU DON’T HAVE DEPRESSION
JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVEN’T ATTEMPTED SUICIDE DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU DON’T HAVE DEPRESSION
JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T ALSO HAVE AN EATING DISORDER DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU DON’T HAVE DEPRESSION
JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE STILL HAPPY SOME OF THE TIME DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU DON’T HAVE DEPRESSION
JUST BECAUSE PEOPLE ON TUMBLR ARE IGNORANT DOESN’T MEAN THAT THEY KNOW WHAT YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH
this was a bad idea
Ok no who gave you the right to bombard me with feels…
I feel like this is really important. Well-drawn, sad, and feels-inducing, yep, but also important. Think about it. If Frozen wasn’t a Disney movie (kid-oriented, more or less) this would have been a very real possibility - a very real danger - for Elsa. Going back to the obvious fact that Elsa was meant to have the nigh-on-crippling depression and anxiety, we realize just how many people can relate to her. Said people see self-harm and suicide as an option; however, knowing Elsa’s story and struggles outside of this artwork lets them know that there is a better option, that it is entirely within their ability to survive what they’re going through. It reminds them that things do get better, even if it seems like they never will.
I’m not crying you’re crying
If you need someone to talk to…I always try to make time for you. So… please don’t leave me.
omg i deleted this post no more than 3 minutes after uploading it and i wake up the next morning and people are crying and writing meta w hy
As demonstrated by the post, they left her messages encouraging her to kill herself, along with threats of physical harm directed at her and her family. Shipyardology, in particular, has spouted hateful rhetoric about her weight, calling her useless and undeserving of basic human decency.
Despite repeated messaging, tumblr staff won’t do anything because the victim herself did not send in the report. Meanwhile, these users are still harassing people.
For days afterwards, no one batted an eye when a fat girl was bullied to the point of suicide ideation and forced to leave her account. Despite having happened in a sizable fandom with many popular users, there were zero posts even acknowledging that what had happened was wrong. Not even tumblr staff did anything, despite the evidence. Even online, a majority of people dismiss blatant abuse when it’s directed towards fat people.
However, we have the power to police our own communities and warn one another of abusive people such as those listed above.
Woah, woah anon. Let’s not go that far. Even though what Liam said was absolutely terrible and should not be defended, suicide/death threats aren’t cool.
In Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, a sixteen-year-old boy was standing on a bridge, threatening to jump off and end his life. Hundreds of onlookers watched in horror as he refused to cross back onto the safe side of the guardrail. Police had arrived and were talking to the boy, but no one could get through to him.
Just then, Liu Wenxiu, a nineteen-year-old hotel waitress, was walking home from work when she saw the boy and knew that she had to do something to help him. Wenxiu had once been suicidal herself, so she knew how the boy felt. Telling police that she was his girlfriend, the girl managed to get close enough to talk to the boy. She shared her own sad and difficult life story, listened to his, and showed him the scar on her wrist from where she had tried to commit suicide herself.
“He said he’s hopeless, ‘so don’t waste your time to save me’. But I told him, ‘I’m not saving your life, I just want you to realize how silly you are being. Look at me, I’ve been there and I’m now here,’” Wenxiu said.
Finally, the girl was able to lean in and give him a hug, and then she unexpectedly gave him a kiss, as well. Police were then able to take the knife that the boy was holding and lead him back over to the safe side of the bridge.
not just followers, everyone.
I’m here if any of you need to talk<3
