Stephen Fry: “And that’s the thing people don’t understand about really severe depression. There’s very much an attitude of ‘oh go and walk it off’..and it’s unfortunately, it just isn’t like that. It’s like saying ‘go walk off the weather’ the weather is real and it’s the weather inside you - you can’t change it. I knew it was an awful thing to do to [my parents]. That no matter how much I didn’t at the time want to live, I couldn’t bear the idea of doing that to them - and that’s a good reason to live. There’s a poem by Dorothy Parker that ends every line with ‘you might as well live.’ And sometimes life does seem unsupportable, not for any logical reason - that’s the point - you can’t talk someone out of finding life unpleasant by saying ‘look what you’ve got’ but you can perhaps say ‘look what it will do to other people.’”

YOU HAVE TO PAY TO SIT ON A PARK BENCH NOW ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS
The poor are hated more than fucking dirt. I wonder how many of the designers/implementers claim themselves as Christian.
This gets done but actually helping the poor does not. -.-
Fucking up relationships and possible friendships. It’s no wonder I only have like 3 friends. I just offend everyone. Or I say the wrong thing and make it awkward, and then try to dig myself out of the hole but end up making it deeper.
SO I MET MISHA FOR THE SECOND TIME TODAY AND FUCK FUCKING FUCK HIM HOW CAN ONE BE SO DAMN PERFECT I DON’T UNDERSTAND i literally go up to him and was all ‘hey! okay, so i would like a customized photo, but i’ve basically no idea what to do.’ and he looks at me for a bit and sort of just ‘hmm okay’ and before i know it his hand is on my back and i’m being liftED UP IN THE AIR LIKE I WEIGH NOTHING AND I WAS SURPRISED can u tell holy shit
AND LIKE I’M GLEAMING but i decided ok i might look like shit so i went back for another photo and we greet each other again and i’m like ‘can we hug’ and he’s all ‘sure!’ and before i know it i’m being engulfed in a really amazing embrace and his head was on mine and we were gripping each other and i thank him and he sort of just holds and squeezes my hand as i go and i just, wow.
RIGHT. So, when I met Misha last year, I kind of briefly touched upon how much he means to me, before I became completely overwhelmed and cried for the next couple of minutes that we spent together. I was determined not to do so this year.
I walked up to him, and we said hey, and while he was signing my photo, I began, ‘So, actually last year when I met you, before I could convey anything I wanted, I became so overwhelmed and couldn’t express myself the way I wanted.’
And he looks up, face tired, but so understanding, grabs hold of my hand and says ‘Yeah, I remember you.’ And I’ve been told before that Misha has a good memory, but I just, I couldn’t believe that he would remember me. It’s completely unreal, and it’s really hard to hold back my tears and I tell him how I chose the wrong words last year, because more than saving my life, he gave me the strength to save my own life.
And he looks at me, so completely awed and says, ‘That’s such a wonderful way to put it.’ And yeah, I properly thanked him. I told him how that incident helped me learn to live without relying on self-harming every single day, and I said how much that changed my life for the better, and he says something, ‘Wow, yeah, it would have,’ along those lines.
So then I asked him for a favour, only if he didn’t mind, if he could write down what he told me last year, so I could get it tattooed, as a reminder. And he looked so at loss when he couldn’t remember what it was, and I told him that he had told me to stay strong. And yeah, that’s what he did. Very carefully also, he writes each character and I thank him again, and turn to walk away and he calls me out to say bye, because I obviously forgot.
I cried heaps actually after that, not in front of him this time around, so I was so, so relieved, before I could get up again and came back to ask for a hug. And he walked over the autograph table, and just held me as I cried, then just rubbed my back and told me to take care. Oh god the man is so amazing I know it may not always seem like I appreciate him, because I have a weird as fuck way of showing love, but I really do. The man means the world to me and I’m so, so glad I have him in my life.
i’m crying because of how genuinely good this man is. he has the kindest eyes, and the kindest soul, and i’m so glad you got the chance to meet him, not once, but twice- and furthermore, he remembered you. he remembered.
this man.. this man.
