Blogs that keep telling you that it’s OK to keep starving your self, and that skinny is the only way to be pretty are horrible and shouldn’t exist.
How can any blog/website enforce the idea that you must put yourself through so much pain and unhappiness. A person who’s going through such pain should never want others feel such a way. I have depression,I hate myself a lot, I’ve self injured, I’ve contemplated suicide many times, and I’ve thought up many more terrible things that a depressed person can think of, but even with all of that, I know my depression is a horrible mental problem that I know I have fight against because it’s trying to force me to believe the worse case scenario, it’s trying to make me believe things about myself that are untrue.
I know it’s a horrible disease that nobody should ever have to experience. I would never want anybody to feel the pain and sadness I’ve felt. They don’t deserve to be that miserable. To the people who start these blogs and anyone who follows them, I just want to make it clear that I don’t dislike or have any personal problem with any of you. As a person with depression, I know what it’s like to believe the worst about yourself and to think things will never get better, but take from a person who’s been there and is still going through it, it does get better. Just keep pushing on no mater how terrible things make seem and you’ll eventually see the real beauty of this world. I can’t guarantee it will happen right away, but I can guarantee that it will happen.
The world is not that evil, simple minded place too many idiots want you to believe. It doesn’t matter if the reason these blogs exist or the reason you follow them is because you feel they’re necessary or maybe you feel that it’s a way to express your anger or depression, that kind of stuff is just not good for the mind. You want to find something that can lighten the weight of depression, eve just for a little, find something that makes you happy. This is the internet, there is always something out there can make you happy (may I suggest damnyouautocorrect.com? Super funny site where I go whenever I’m feeling extremely depressed. Always makes me feel a bit better).
Of course you’re going to have to figure out what makes you that happy? It might be a website or it may be some kind of activity outside of the computer, they are there. The world is not a dark and hopeless place, it is filled good people who will love you and help you no matter what. Just muster a small bit, not even a lot, of courage and hope to find them. You’d be surprised to find how many of them are out there.
