"Laziness is not a trait.... It is a way of life. And I have chosen that path." -Me
Hi, I'm lost. I can't seem to find my way, where I belong, I don't even know where I'm going! But they say to live in the moment, right? Well, they say a lot of things. Like high school is about sex, drugs and alcohol or that spending your days indoors is unhealthy. Quite frankly, I think life indoors is great, too. It's all about Saturday nights in an oversized tshirt, dancing around to your favorite songs, maybe grabbing a tub of ice cream while watching a movie and of course, blogging. If you're wondering, this blog does not fit in any category. It's fandom slash fun stuff slash deep stuff slash photography slash I honestly don't know what any more.
help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful
DID YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY GIF AN ABILIFY COMMERCIAL
yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”
LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant?? Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO. They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL. They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.
Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse. The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!! Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest. Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed. They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE. So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.
