The community on this website that glorifies self harm and depression is something I cant stand. And I refuse to feed it’s flame. If you need help, go out into the real world and get some there are people that are trained to help you, that spend their whole life to change lives for the better, and that is what I plan to do with my life as well. You can convince yourself that this website is a way to express yourself and your dark emotions, but if you are using it to find pity and to present yourself as damaged goods… you are only just fooling yourself. The article I posted explains this much better than I can…
I’m thankful to the friends I’ve made on here, that were healthy and helpful. (I hope to stay in contact with you btw). But the time I’ve spent away from this website has been such an eye opener, and I know now that I can’t be a part of it anymore.
Bye, tumblr. I wont miss you.
Online communities like those on Tumblr are perpetuating ideas of “beautiful suffering,” confusing what it means to be clinically depressed.
