6 Reasons Dating Someone with Depression is Easy

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.

Desireé Dallagiacomo - “Notes on Loving a Five-Time Felon” (WOWPS 2014)

"When people ask you to write about something more universal, something softer in its tragedy, explain soft is no longer an appropriate option, once you’ve watched a skull full of your own blood become cantaloupe on the pavement."

Performing during the Last Chance Slam at the 2014 Women of the World Poetry Slam.

This woman’s poetry is some of my favorite around. Love her.

I crave intimacy but I get confused and uncomfortable when I’m shown even the slightest bit of attention or affection.

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.

Love Moko. Her song Your Love is addicting, and her style is so pretty. Just felt like she’d make a great Sailor Moon. Also was inspired by Asieybarbie’s sailor moon redraws as well when doing this.

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
