I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.
― Anaïs Nin

Schizophrenia: patients usually have less brain tissue
Major Depression: scans show less brain activity in depressed brain
Alzheimer’s: brain tissue significantly shrinks, hippocampus is usually the first region to go
ADHD: less brain activity in the frontal cortex (area associated with decision making) 
OCD: high brain activity 
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): hippocampal volume reduction (area involved in memory) and increased activation of the amygdala (area involved in emotional responses) 

This is so important! I usually don’t reblog posts but people need to understand that mental illnesses are NO CHOICE! You cannot get over it, or snap with your fingers and just be okay again. It takes constant fixing and a lot of strength to get out of this.So to everyone who judges people with mental disorders: people don’t get a choice to develop a disorder or not, but being stupid and telling them to get over it is a choice.PLEASE DONT JUDGE THINGS UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND!

La solitude est l’indépendance, je l’avais souhaitée et acquise au cours de longues années. Elle était froide, oh! oui, mais elle était calme, merveilleusement calme et immense comme l’espace silencieux et glacé où tournent les astres.

Herman Hesse, Steppenwolf 

  • Translation: "Solitude is independence. It had been my wish and with the years I had attained it. It was cold. Oh, cold enough! But it was also still, wonderfully still and vast like the cold stillness of space in which the stars revolve.”

myriad [mir-ee-uhd]
(noun) In our list of interesting words, myriad makes its place as the most supreme in quantity and quality and as one the most beautiful in the English language.  A myriad is defined as a massive amount of persons or things. (adjective) It is used to describe the vastness of certain aspects. For example: the myriad stars of a summer night or the myriad mind of Shakespeare. Myriad holds more superiority than a word such as enormous because it holds a metaphysical quality; it is innumerable. Due to the latter, it is hard to quantify because its quality is also distinguished.  (via wordsnquotes)

I know a girl who just looks at her face in the medicine cabinet mirror and never looks below her shoulders, and she’s four or five hundred pounds but she doesn’t see all that, she just sees a beautiful face and therefore she thinks she’s a beauty. And therefore, I think she’s a beauty, too, because I usually accept people on the basis of their self-images, because their self-images have more to do with the way they think than their objective-images do.
