a relationship will not cure your issues, no matter how hard young adult books and films try to push that notion on us. if you have depression or bipolar or anxiety or whatever, getting into a relationship isn’t going to cure that or make it go away. person with illness + relationship = ill person in a relationship. please don’t put all of your focus on finding someone to fix you, focus on fixing yourself the right way.
I miss when tumblr wasn’t so mainstream. And I know I know, that sounds so snobbish -hipstery of me, but I’m serious. I joined tumblr in 2009, and it’s not like the site was small even then, but it definitely wasn’t what it is today. And even though I have seven times the amount of followers I had, I know less of you. It’s a less intimate experience. I love tumblr and its memes and blah blah blah but I miss the way I first experienced it. It was like this cute little community and if you found another person IRL with a tumblr it felt like a special thing. Now it’s like everyone has one and everyone knows about it and it’s still a great website but just…not the same.
