never loved a gif so much
this is kinda creepy tho
The story behind this painting is very interesting, though. The artist’s mother was very sick, so the house was always filled a suffocating silence. This painting depicts him wanting to scream, but having to be silent, hence the anguished expression. In the whole painting you see figures in the background, one of which is his sister.
I could stare at this for hours.
This is horrifying
this is intense
Is that Smeagol in a nightie?
In a way, this is how depression works. Every ounce of you wants to scream for help, but it’s almost as if your body won’t allow it. You are lost in the pain of silence, and sooner or later, you can’t find your way back.
anxiety is terrible, you could be having an attack and no one would even know because it’s an inward thing. it feels like you’re malfunctioning and you can’t process your own thoughts. you get a knot in your stomach and you can’t take a full breath but outwardly you can literally just sit there and look completely normal as long as no one tries to speak to you.
I need you to promise me something, and tell me you'll stay strong.
"Not ready to let go" by me.
When I was in a psychiatric ward there was a girl two beds away from me that used to do this. She’d do it for hours, just sitting there and rocking.
One day, I asked her why she did it.
“Because it takes me away”
“Away from what?”
When i started doing this on one of my therapy sessions, my shrink told me to keep doing that, because its a way to calm yourself.
