Erratic thinking, blending in ideas to form a logic which doesn't exist yet.

How can you tell when you are in a room, restroom, motel etc. with a mirror or a 2-way glass?
Here’s how: I thought it was quite interesting! And I know in about 30 seconds you’re going to do what I did and find the nearest mirror.
Do you know how to determine if a mirror is 2-way or not? A policewoman who travels all over the US and gives seminars and techniques for businesswomen passed this on….
When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, etc., how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror (i.e., they can see you, but you can’t see them)? There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms . It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by looking at it.
So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?
TWO WAY GLASS IMAGE MIRROR IMAGE
Just conduct this simple test: Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is GENUINE mirror. However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE! IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR!
“No Space, Leave the Place” So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the “fingernail test.” It doesn’t cost you anything.
REMEMBER. No Space, Leave the Place:
Ladies: Share this with your girlfriends, sisters, daughters, etc.
Men: Share this with your wives, daughters, daughters-in-law, mothers, girlfriends and/or friends.
Worth reblogging again.
everyone warn women because it’s ok to spy on men going to the bathroom but it’s not ok to do it to women
I personally don’t give a shit if someone wanted to watch me take a shit but to imply that it should only worry women is stupid
I like this info, though so yay
I like what danglen said. Also, I too like this info!
you do NOT owe your family a visit this holiday season. don’t let people, family or not, guilt you into spending time with them if they are toxic, make you uncomfortable, or are negative aspects in your life.
don’t feel guilty for protecting yourself and your mental health this holiday season.
I’m sure any meth-addict and serial-killer would say the same thing. “Nothing is more real and more peaceful than what they do.”
I’m sure poachers see themselves as hunters… “The natural order of life. The calm feelings of discharging a rifle. The adventure.”
It’s “natural”, relaxing and feels real… or good.
But, a bad habit, is called that for a reason. It doesn’t do good. It either wastes time, money, or life to some degree.
I’m sure we can all think of that one person, who abuses drugs or alcohol. They certainly wouldn’t think they are harming anybody. It doesn’t harm anybody else, ‘that they know of’… because they don’t want to know.
It might not be the habit itself that damages you. (Though with cutting there certainly is that element to consider.)
It’s the effect on your MIND:
Its an escape. But soon the habit becomes “the one thing that’s real and true in the world”. It becomes more real than family and the fabric that holds your life together. It’s sabotage.
And then you do more… and more… and you dig yourself into helplessness. You will hurt those who love you.
All downward spirals look the same. And those ‘outsiders’ judging you? They aren’t judging you, so much as they are trying to work out how not to get sucked in.
Making an idol of somebody who cuts is just perpetuates the delusions of this sickness. Stop.
What if a little girl is having a hard time and sees this. What if this kind of “hero” image is the thing that makes her cut, instead of talking to her family. This shit ruins lives. Because it might start with cutting, but she might decide, that it should end in suicide. Not always, but what if.
There are 9000 notes on this image alone! You are spreading this wank around like some universal truth that will make people understand. It won’t. It’s simply a unity of 9000 people feeling alone or upset at the same time.
Stop being a twat on tumblr…
Try fixing something. Something small. Do this like, maybe once a day, for a few weeks. It can be a relationship or physical item or anything. If you make FIXING THINGS your habit, you will eventually find cutting, to be the worst feeling in your life.
Fixing is like making. Rather than destroying, you feel like things have a little more purpose afterwards. (Even if it is just a simple thing like fixing a door handle.) Give it time. You will find that same “calmness”, in finding solutions, as you do in trying to find a way to avoid the problem.
Or maybe it’s a stepping stone towards discovering what makes you happy. Happy means things are less stressful and more beautiful. You notice more. Things are less shit. Isn’t that what you want in life? Less shit? I know I do.
I know that writing this might be a waste of time. People who cut are usually very set in their ways, delusional or not. Some people will read this and only find a way to attack me.
But if you change, then YOU are the hero. Write a book. Draft a realistic step by step plan on how to make your dream a reality. Work out if your dream is a dream, or a job full of stuff you would hate. Find something you don’t hate. Move on to the next thing you don’t hate.
I know things don’t happen instantly. But start by not romanticising the issue.

They say depression and intelligence go hand in hand, well this is Einstein and his therapist.
I am far less okay than I let on.
