a friendly tip: if you feel the urge to self harm get an ice cube and hold it in your hand for a while. it relieves the compulsion in a less destructive way. therapists have used this with their patients and i have tried it myself it works pretty well

Okay wow this is now my favourite post on Tumblr. Signal boost into infinity.

My mom’s a therapist and she recommends this to people all the time

i don’t think it’s possible to be real friends with someone without being a little in love with them. like “WOW. look at that smile! look at you!!! i’m so happy you’re happy and i wanna spit in the face of anyone who’s ever hurt you!! you’re wonderful & i love the way you pronounce your words when you’re thinking really hard!!!!! i love you!” ya know

Do you ever want to talk to someone but

1) You feel like you’re bothering them or coming off clingy
2) You don’t have anything to say, you just want to talk to them
3) You don’t know how to hold a conversation to save your life 





"Glamour," she observed, "is assurance. It is a kind of knowing that you are all right in every way, mentally and physically and in appearance, and that, whatever the occasion or the situation, you are equal to it."

"Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic, and fear which is inherent in a human situation."

—Graham Greene (via psych-facts)


Zdzisław Beksiński, theme: Black and White.

"These paintings where made by Zdzisław Beksiński, a poorly known Polish painter. In earlier works he painted deforming models and couples during sex acts. In the Polish communist ’80s this meant his work could only been seen by few. 

A few years later he started painting dark, mysterious images containing dead bodies and visions of Hell. He took inspiration from his nightmares; he often woke up in the middle of the night and began to paint.

People talk about there being a curse on his family. His wife died young due to illness, his son commited suicide. It was Beksiński who found his body. In 2005 Beksiński’s body was found, which substained 17 stab wounds, in his Warsaw flat. Three days later, police charged two teenagers for his murder.

Every one of his works was named ‘no title’, for he hated his own work.”
