this video is so important and you should watch the whole thing
Okay I watched it and it’s absolutely wonderful, and my favourite part is when she just starts CHUCKING stuff at it. But look at the things she’s throwing: a rubber ducky, a basketball, a book. Toys, books, games, FUN things.
I felt this part the strongest. When depression is in the early stages of getting out of hand, you just start BOMBARDING it with happy things. ‘Oh yeah? WELL TAKE THAT. FAVOURITE THINGS AWESOME BOOKS COOL TOYS HAPPINESS HAPPINESS THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY HAVE THEM ALL ASSHOLE.’
But sadly, quite often it just plain doesn’t work.
