And that’s the most frustrating thing about depression. It isn’t always something you can fight back against with hope. It isn’t even something — it’s nothing. And you can’t combat nothing. You can’t fill it up. You can’t cover it. It’s just there, pulling the meaning out of everything. That being the case, all the hopeful, proactive solutions start to sound completely insane in contrast to the scope of the problem.

It would be like having a bunch of dead fish, but no one around you will acknowledge that the fish are dead. Instead, they offer to help you look for the fish or try to help you figure out why they disappeared.

The problem might not even have a solution. But you aren’t necessarily looking for solutions. You’re maybe just looking for someone to say “sorry about how dead your fish are” or “wow, those are super dead. I still like you, though.”

A Vancouver charity, RainCity Housing, is converting city benches into pop-up shelters for homeless people. And by giving homeless people in this rainy city some dry coverage and a place to rest, RainCity is putting London’s anti-homeless spikes to shame.

90sdefect:

Word? So Cinderella was black?

Not necessarily: the earliest written forms of the story talk about an hetaira (courtesan) called Rhodopis (“rosy cheeks” - probably a pseudonym for her profession) who ends up being taken from Greece to Egypt.

Herodotus’ 5th-century BC version says that Rhodopis was one of Aesop’s fellow-slaves, and was bought and then freed by Sappho’s brother Charaxus (who had fallen in love with her) after she was brought to Naucratis to serve her master. Sappho wrote a poem about her, saying that she made Charaxus poor.

Strabo’s version (1st century BC) adds the “Cinderella” elements that we are familiar with today. While she’s bathing an eagle steals one of her slippers and takes it to Memphis, where it drops the slipper into the lap of the king (Aelian names him as Psammetichus). The king searches for her and finds her in Naucratis.

So she probably wasn’t black, but she definitely would not have been western European.

There are all of these stories about broken people being saved by love,
All these comments by preteen girls who think it’s adorable,
There is nothing adorable about broken people.
There is nothing adorable about having to wake up your girlfriend at 5 in the morning because you cannot stop yourself from relapsing by yourself.
There is nothing adorable about debating about not waking her up, debating if you getting out of bed to relapse would wake her up.
There is nothing adorable about sometimes going so numb you can’t even say I love you back because you can’t feel any emotions.
There is nothing adorable about having panic attacks whenever she says you need to talk, because you’re so terrified she’s going to leave you.
There is nothing adorable about self-harm or any mental illnesses. Please, please, please stop saying there is.
