So last night on facebook, I made a rather humorous post and had a long conversation in the comments with my roommate. The person I am SUPER CRUSHING ON liked not only the status, but every single one of my comments. I got my hopes up. ”Maybe they are interested!”
Then I remembered this person has a significant other and probably has no interest in a polyamorous relationship…..
Reminder that the creators of Night Vale made their show without any corporate sponsorship or financial compensation other than donations and selling T-shirts and they made it to the number one slot on Itunes and they did it with a godblessed openly queer protagonist and an explicitly dark-skinned love interest thank you and good night.
I don’t think people realise how hard it is to re-discover the person you were before depression or even try to remember your own personality
and if you’ve had depression since early childhood you don’t even know if you have your own personality
you didn’t have time to be a person before depression
and it’s scary having no idea who you are
