guys, this stuff needs to stop. in my year of being on tumblr i have seen countless posts like this one, saying “if i get [instert number of reblogs/likes/w/e] then i wont hurt/kill myself.” this is emotional manipulation and it is wrong.
first off, you are pressuring people you dont even know into doing something that means ultimately nothing. you are making people feel like if they dont reblog this you may do something rash and it will be their fault. the title, the first sentace, everything bout this is wrong and manipulative. doing stuff like this is often what classifies people as “poisonous”.
Another thing wrong with this post is that it is based on what some awful person said and they used what the other person said to make a bet of sorts. betting on people’s feelings is awful and you are guilt tripping them to win. i know that this person probably feels like shit, but to even consider turning this into a petty competition is amazingly shitty.
this is emotional manipulation, this is wrong and you are pressuring people to try to make yourself happy. its ok to want people to comfort you, but to threaten hurting yourself like this is awful and you are a terrible person for thinking it is ok.
if you are someone who does this then you are an awful person. Notes on a post on a dumb site mean nothing, what you are doing is manipulative and terrible. as a protip: if you feel like people dont care for you then talk to people you actually know, chances are they will say something they mean.
On the twelfth day of finals my college gave to me,
Twelve screaming sessions
Eleven chapters to read
Ten students sobbing
Nine frozen pizzas
Eight days of no sleep
Seven shows on Netflix
Six open tabs
FIVE POTS OF COFFEE!!!!!
Four panicked calls
Three vehement denials
Two mental breakdowns
And a day of getting nothing done
…….. Yeah, so I should be studying. Instead, this happened.
Red: the ink of angry pens
Black: the coffee in my glass
Red: my final starts at dawn
Black: i’m gonna fail this class
- Teenagers aren’t the only ones who self injure.
- People who have fought in wars and rape victims aren’t the only people who have PTSD.
- Girls aren’t the only ones that develop eating disorders.
- Adults can have ADHD.
Stop assuming these disorders only affect one “type” of person. Mental illness does not discriminate! Age, gender, race, economic status… anyone can be born with/develop a mental illness regardless.
Repeat after me:
I am not a problem
to be solved. Repeat after me:
I am worthy I am worthy I am
neither the mistake nor
do u ever get really paranoid and think that everyone youve ever considered a friend actually secretly hates u or is that just me
