Speechless and redundant.

Atualmente, a depressão afeta mais de 350 milhões de pessoas no mundo inteiro. Projeções da OMS (Organização Mundial da Saúde) estimam que no ano de 2030, entre todas as doenças, a depressão será a mais comum. Apesar de afetar tantas pessoas, o preconceito e a falta de estratégias de prevenção faz com que apenas 10% com o problema tenham acesso ao tratamento.

A OMS, em parceria com o escritor e ilustrador Matthew Johnstone, produziu uma animação que mostra de forma simples e direta o que é a depressão e, o mais importante, como é possível se livrar dela.

I promise. I will share my chips with you when you’ve finished yours and you’re still hungry. I promise to rub your belly when it growls. I will eat the mushrooms and tomatoes when we order Domino’s pizza. I will kiss the paper cuts and the door slammed fingers. I will try my hardest not to get annoyed with you when you whisper comments and questions during movies. I will be the big spoon. I will let you win at wrestling. Sometimes I will send you texts to brighten your day. I will greet you with coffee and a smile on cold winter mornings. I will rub your feet when they’re cold. I will light a fire in the fireplace and tell you how pretty you look in the golden glow.

I knew I matured when I realized every situation doesn’t need a reaction. Sometimes you just have to leave people to continue to do the lame shit that they do.

apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad f**k” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.

I have a love for her that runs deep.

do you ever get that horrible feeling in your stomach because you can’t imagine anyone ever falling in love with you and wanting to spend the rest of their life with you

It’s not the kind of sadness to where you cry all the time, but more of like the sadness that overwhelms your entire body, leaving you heart aching and your stomach empty. Making you feel weak and tired. And yet, you can’t even sleep cause the sadness is in your dreams too. It’s almost a sadness you can’t escape.

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
