Hi, I’m Sad Habits girl.
I’m in my mid-twenties and I’m finally ready to do battle with mental illness. Specifically, mine.
Depression to me (at this point), is almost like a security blanket, in that I’m barely functioning and I’m comfortable that way. Doing and being and existing in the world are all scary things that I could fail at, so instead I sleep for twelve hours a day and spend the other twelve engaging in behavior that doesn’t help me at all.
Instead, I’m going to try and focus on the things that I like that are good for me. I like writing, and photography. I’m learning how to draw because I was never any good before. I play video games and I spend a lot of time watching TV and Movies.
I gravitate towards stories about people, their relationships with one another and the things they choose to do. I hope that by keeping track of my own choices, I can remind myself that I’m human too, and I deserve to give myself a good story.
If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
