Jeremy Soule (Oblivion OST) | Auriel’s Ascension
"you don’t beat or defeat mental illnesses you just survive them" buuut you can actually do … both ! ? you can struggle against ur mental illness and then overcome/learn to live with it and that is………. Beating it ! ? !? triumphant and victorious and powerful language is good and important to many people, and its use in no way trivializes the seriousness of their illness(es) ???!??!?!
you don’t “beat” depression. you don’t “defeat” eating disorders. you survive them. stop making severe mental illnesses sound like something you can overcome just by throwing the right punch.
? i don’t really understand what the problem is with mentally ill ppl using this terminology though? like . what’s wrong with using words that make u feel cool and powerful when describing struggling against illnesses that frequently make u feel bad and helpless. ? ?

Well if we take all these things
And we bury them fast
And we’ll pray that they turn
Into seeds, to roots, and then grass
It’d be all right, it’s all right
It’d be easier that way
I want to draw coats and scarfs all day long.
