One. You don’t have to try very hard to get them to love you
They love everyone that is kind to them in the slightest.
They fall for anyone that bothers to give them a second glance
Or the time of day.
Two. You don’t have to take them out on expensive dates
Because they’re always too sad to leave the house
You can sit in their room playing video games
While they lay wrapped in blankets, feeling empty inside
Three. You don’t have to shower them with compliments or encouragement
Because you know they’ll never believe you.
They are already conditioned to hate themselves.
You don’t have to buy them presents
Because your presence is enough to brighten their day
Thinking someone cares means more than any trinket
Four. You don’t have to beg them to fuck you
They’ll fuck you just to feel something
They will touch you and caress you and run their fingers over your spine
Hoping that what they feel will eventually replace the grief
Five. You don’t have to worry about them cheating on you.
They don’t believe anyone else could ever want them.
They cannot see how you even want them,
because they think they’re not worthy of anyone’s love.
They’re too apathetic, too sad, too broken.
Six. Break-ups are the easiest part of dating someone with depression.
They have been mentally preparing for this day since you met
They have heard the words in their mind over and over.
It’s easy because it doesn’t even hurt
Because they have been hurting themselves the whole time.

People with anxiety:
- Know the worry is irrational
- Want to calm down but can’t
- Hate the fact that breathing feels like you are trying to breathe rocks instead of air
- Feel like they are drowning and suffocating. Telling them to just take a breath and calm down doesnt help.
- Want to stop shaking but can’t control their limbs.
- Just plain feel horrible and embarrassed.
minimum wage doesn’t even TOUCH a living wage, racism and sexism are alive and well, children are killed in schools on a regular basis, those who make it to college end up with hundreds of thousands in debt, our basic rights are being stripped from us daily, and adults actually believe that SELFIES are the cause for this generation’s demise
