Although many writers had had periods of significant depression, mania, or hypomania, they were consistently appealing, entertaining, and interesting people. They had led interesting lives, and they enjoyed telling me about them as much as I enjoyed hearing about them. Mood disorders tend to be episodic, characterized by relatively brief periods of low or high mood lasting weeks to months, interspersed with long periods of normal mood (known as euthymia to us psychiatrists). All the writers were euthymic at the time that I interviewed them, and so they could look back on their periods of depression or mania with considerable detachment. They were also able to describe how abnormalities in mood state affected their creativity. Consistently, they indicated that they were unable to be creative when either depressed or manic.The relationship between creativity and mental illness – a fascinating study based on writers from the prestigious Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Kurt Vonnegut was among the subjects. (via explore-blog)
It’s important in life to conclude things properly. Only then can you let go. Otherwise you are left with words you should have said but never did, and your heart is heavy with remorse.Yann Martel, Life of Pi (via quoted-books)
Don’t do that. Don’t skip stages in your life. You’re 19, kiss a few boys and wear your heart on your sleeve. There will come a time when you’re 39 and stuck in a suit, wondering why the hell you were so eager to grow up in the first place.note to self (via safeslut)
give yourself a solid day to piss and moan and emote all the gross feelings out of your system, cry it out, just go crazy and idk, eat a five metre high stack of cookies or cry along to angry death metal, just have fun with it.
then the next day, have a shower, put on your favourite clothes, do your hair up the way you like it, put on makeup/warpaint if you’re into it and then stare at your reflection in the mirror. absorb your own cuteness. and laugh maniacally because some poor asshole rejected you and their terrible life choices are hilarious to you.
then rise up more powerful and terrifying than ever before.
