“If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest and best things you will ever do.”—Stephen Fry (via mindovermatterzine)
“What sick ridiculous puppets we are, and what a gross little stage we dance on. What fun we have dancing and fucking. Not a care in the world. Not knowing that we are nothing. We are not what was intended.”—William Somerset: [Reading from one of John Doe’s journals] Se7en
“On the subway today, a man came up to me to start a conversation. He made small talk, a lonely man talking about the weather and other things. I tried to be pleasant and accommodating, but my head hurt from his banality. I almost didn’t notice it had happened, but I suddenly threw up all over him. He was not pleased, and I couldn’t stop laughing.”—William Somerset: [Reading from one of John Doe’s journals] Se7en

Every time someone shares a testimony at church my mind starts spinning with mine. Should I write one? Should I read mine out? I know they’re great by letting people know how you came to know Christ, but I get so worried. I think I’ve done worse since becoming a Christian. Plus, my testimony is such a typical crazy teenager story of self harm, wild parties, and alcohol. So cliche.
At the end of the day, I just love God and Jesus, and that’s about all there is to it. I pray to myself, but will never pray out loud, and prefer to quietly sit and listen to what others have to say at church. I have nothing against people being homosexual, and I refuse to shove my beliefs down anyone’s throat. I’m just trying to figure my own life out at the moment. And God is helping me on my way. I’m sure I’ll keep him around for good. :)
