so sick of seeing so called poor people buying iPhones. Ever thought that might be a contributing factor to you being poor. perhaps next time you think spending $800 on a fancy new phone every year is a good idea you buy a house with that money. a thin sliver of a house. a house part. A door. A stack of 8 bathroom tiles. a curtain. Within like 90 years you would have a complete house idiots

lantur said: Those posts really help me. Especially the “you are loved” part. Even if I sometimes don’t feel loved irl by people besides the parents, it makes me remember that I have tumblr friends who would be sad if I died.

Good, that makes me feel less shitty about posts like that.

placentalmammal said: My rationale for not killing myself is that if I’m dead, it means my enemies have won. The future fills me with existential angst. Thinking about the future makes me want to kill myself more.

'Don't let them win' is a solid reason. My #1 reason is for not killing myself is that I'm going to die anyway at some point, so why rush into it? (I am an absolute joy at parties, as you can imagine.)

There are 101 reasons to not kill yourself that have nothing to do with positivity and everything to do with being a stubborn cuss.

salixj said: Me neither, but many of those who I have spoken with who feel suicidal post these types of messages, I guess it helps them. Different things help different people. Puts it in the “can’t hurt ” category for me, and if even one person is helped, kwim?

Yeah, they seem harmless, and now that it’s no longer early morning and I feel somewhat like I’m an actual human being, I can understand that they must help  people. My visceral ‘ugh’ reaction to such posts stems largely from the fact that the whole ‘think positive, consider your future, and be grateful for what you have’ angle feels like a kick in the ribs when you’re already trying to think positive and you just can’t. When you’re depressed, your failure to pull yourself together and appreciate things can become further evidence that you’re fundamentally broken.

And being told that you’re loved doesn’t always help, which just makes you feel further guilt. I’ve seen plenty of depressed people say that they wished no one loved them so then they could just quietly slip out of existence without upsetting anyone.

Every so often I see a post a long the lines of ‘don’t kill yourself because you are loved and think of all the great things you could achieve in future blah blah blah’. I’d like to know if these posts actually help anyone or if people just reblog them so they can pat themselves on the back.

I’ve had an issue with suicidal ideation for the last 15 years and I can’t say that some generic post telling me to think of positive has made much an emotional impact.

(My reasons for not killing myself are kind of grim and certainly have nothing to do with thinking about ~my future~ or my inherent worth as a human being.)

Anyway, if these ‘THINK POSITIVE!’ posts have helped people, I’ll back off and try to be less cynical about them - but as it is, whenever I see on I just inwardly go ‘eurgh’.

Why does everyone doing poetry slam/spoken word poetry performances have one of three voices?


I think it’s three.  It may be two, or one.  But it’s basically a couple voices that everyone uses, same intonation, same everything.

I’ve been wondering about this for ages and it drives me crazy.
