Have you ever felt like you were too sick? Too sick to keep going along with the world, that you just needed to leave? That this world doesn’t have a place for you, and therefore you should just go?
Have you ever felt that feeling that you just need to go? Anywhere, even if you didn’t know where? And as you were leaving, those thoughts came in? The thoughts of how your friends, your family would take your leaving? How much they would cry, mourn, and beg for you back?
Have you ever felt that feeling of just letting go and…fade away forever?

Stronger than ten

People with female parts will get about 500 periods in their lifetime. Meaning that you’ll be on your period for a total of around 1200 days. With a loss of about 1440 ounces of blood. Which is approximately how much blood there is in 9 adult human bodies. That, my friend, is some very badass stuff.
it’s the most wonderful tiiiime of the yearrr
Cyber-psychologist Berni Goode talking about Flow on Charlie Brooker’s How Videogames Changed the World.
Flow is extremely important. So, so important.
It’s what keeps some people sane. It’s what drives the world’s most skilled and accomplished athletes, the most intense gamers, the hardcore hobbyists, even many of the most talented artists, musicians and actors - flow is what you get when unstoppable drive meets an unflinching will and unlimited dedication.
Flow is being utterly, truly “in the zone”. And it’s one of the most amazing feelings there is.
This is why finding a sport, or a hobby, or a martial art, or a handicraft, or a new video game, or any skill-based activity that uses focus and requires practice and repetition is so beneficial for things like depression and anxiety and overall mental/physical well-being.
