Help Me || Joni Mitchell

But the real question, or the real point, is that if you are not lost then you’re at a place someone has already found. I mean, if you feel familiar—if you feel comfortable—you’re in mapped territory. What’s the use of being in mapped territory?
Junot Díaz (via camzaman)

vision-catastrofica:

Alphaville (1965), Jean-Luc Godard

and it was a losing game in the end, it seemed, this revolt against the homilies by which the world is run.
Willa Cather, “Paul’s Case”
Like I said, disappearances happen. Pains go phantom. Blood stops running and people—people fade away. There’s more I have to say—so much more, but I’m disappeared.
The only reason I remembered this play was because it had a mad person in it, and everything I had ever read about mad people stuck in my mind, while everything else flew out.
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

Your rest is important. Your nourishment is important. Your needs are important.

Your life is important.

You are important.

I wish I could do whatever I liked behind the curtain of ‘madness.’ Then: I’d arrange flowers, all day long, I’d paint; pain, love and tenderness, I would laugh as much as I feel like at the stupidity of others, and they would all say: ‘Poor thing, she’s crazy!’ (Above all I would laugh at my own stupidity.) I would build my world which while I lived, would be in agreement with all the worlds. The day, or the hour, or the minute that I lived would be mine and everyone else’s - my madness would not be an escape from ‘reality.’
Frida Kahlo, The Diary Of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait (via violentwavesofemotion)

People with disabilities and trauma survivors have the right to exist and have feelings and talk about their lives outside a therapist’s office.
