This is really true, I really am utterly amazed at the amount of people that view artists as “something not human”, almost as if we were machines. Then attack and become absolutely horrid because we won’t appease them or we don’t act a certain way like they want us to or because we “are getting attention we don’t deserve.” Artists work really hard on their works and to treat them like they don’t deserve attention for all that work or that they’re not human but a machine to appease you all is pretty lowly behavior…

This is also…really ironic since art is one of the most human subjects… 

……. I….. This is painful to read. Painful because of how home sticking this is. I’m terrified of trying to hard because it means I will be exposing myself to this.  There will always be the yin with the yang, negative to take along side the positive. It doesn’t make it any less disturbing when it pops its ugly head up to say hello.

REBLOGGING THIS SHIT SOOOOOO HARD!!!!!!!

These are from a wonderful book called The Art Of Comforting. Check it out and learn how to be better at supporting people going through difficult things.

Looks like a great resource. I know a couple of the most irritating things I hear a lot when talking about my struggles with depression are “You should keep busy!” or “You need to get out/exercise more!”

Keeping busy was what got overwhelming for me. Having work and scheduled things going on all the time was causing me a LOT of stress and anxiety. I would feel like I was detaching from myself, and would end up in a bad way. Pushing myself back into being busy too soon would be detrimental to my recovery.

Getting exercise and going out of the house is sound advice for improving well-being; my doctors recommend it. That being the case, I don’t need to hear it from fucking everybody. It’s always obvious when non-doctors don’t understand how difficult that can be, and it sounds more like nagging from them. As the book suggests, making actual plans is infinitely more helpful. Make sure to carry them out, though, because it’s painful to get forgotten or stood up in the best of times, but damn brutal when you’re depressed.
