It’s just a tad insulting

Photographer imagines life filled with anxiety and mental illness

“Photographer imagines life filled with anxiety and mental illness” kind of doesn’t get the point of why people with mental illness behave oddly. It’s not because hey, we’re quirky and we just think our quirks ought to be considered normal. It’s because, to us, everything we do makes sense. It’s because, in the narratives going through our distorted thinking, the odd things we do are completely justifiable, and have their own dreamlike logic which, to us, makes sense.

“All of us have secrets and habits that would appear eccentric to others, but It’s Hardly Noticeable suggests perhaps our desire for normalcy is just another neurosis.”

ORLY? Maybe I want to be normal because I’m fucking tired of living with nightmares.

It’s just a tad insulting to have an outsider tell me why I think as I do.
