That’s the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it’s impossible to ever see the end.Elizabeth Wurtzel (via highanxietiessupport)
You can’t save someone and someone can’t save you but you can hold someone while they save themselves and someone can hold you while you save yourself.
That’s something a lot of people don’t get and something the media capitalizes on, “saving people through relationships.”
Relationships are wonderful when it’s people working with each other and not people working for each other expecting to be a saviour.

yet another fun fact: you don’t cure eating disorders by telling the person to “just eat”
Perfectionism is self-abuse of the highest order.Ann Wilson Schaff (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
But rarely do you ever tell people about the true depths of your loneliness, about how you feel more and more alienated from your friends each passing day and you’re not sure how to fix it. It seems like everyone is just better at living than you are.(via existential-serendipity)
You get depressed because you know that you’re not what you should be.Marilyn Manson (via wordsthat-speak)
