help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful
DID YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY GIF AN ABILIFY COMMERCIAL
yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”
LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant?? Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO. They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL. They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.
Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse. The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!! Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest. Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed. They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE. So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.
It’s back and adorable
Reblogging because this is important.
….also I really, really miss (good) 2D animation
I actually enjoy not being able to see people and then reconnecting with them after a while.
Even if you two see each other for a quick 10 minutes, there’s that rush of “I can talk about anything” with them because there’s just so much to catch up on.
"Long time no see! What’s new with you?"
Relationships, careers, goals, memories… It’s endless.
And what’s even better is that, if you can remember that far enough, you’ll be able to see how much they’ve grown and/or changed to become who they are now. Whether they’ve had a good couple of years or a couple harsh ones.
Some people you’ve never expected to reconnect with may suddenly just drop into your life. Whether it be because they moved half way across the world, or you two live completely parallel life styles.
Regardless of the reason behind it, just that small chance of meeting is so serendipitous.
One of those little moments to live for.
It’s so difficult planning things. I know you can’t make everyone happy, but since “you’re” throwing it, it’s “your” responsibility that everyone gets accommodated.
One day I hope to just go yolo and enjoy myself without having to worry about whether or not my guests are having fun or not. As long as they’re there, right?
Lowkey wanted someone to help me plan. But I still feel bad for even asking that. lol
Reid Wiseman is a national treasure.
I. Love. This stuff.
