before you date a girl with a mental illness, remember: saying, “you’re beautiful” won’t balance the chemicals in her brain.

and don’t fucking say, “i’ll be here for you, no matter what,” if you don’t mean it.

don’t think you’re fixing her by saying, “i love you.” because you’re not

This needs more notes.

All of it, but mostly the bolded

Color Test

This test is freaky accurate, figures me out more than I could myself even if it was chance of luck and also makes me realize, hey I’m a terrible person. 

Your Existing Situation

Likes to be in control and wishes to hold a position of power. Comes up with ideas and plans to overcome obstacles and likes to feel control over events and situations.

Your Stress Sources

"Feels empty and isolated from others and wishes to overcome this feeling. Believes life has more to offer her than what she was experienced thus far, and doesn’t want to miss out on anything. she purses all her goals and dreams, fearful that any missed opportunity will cause her to miss out on even more. Quickly becomes an expert in any field she pursues and can sometimes come off as overbearing and nosy."

Your Restrained Characteristics

Current events leave her feeling forced into compromise in order to avoid being cut off from affection or future cooperation.

"Struggles to make her demands clear, but feels ignored. Feels resentful, but acts as if she doesn’t care, doing what is necessary to keep peace."

"Willing to become emotionally involved, but is demanding and picky when choosing a partner. Is careful not to bring out conflict or disagreements as this may decrease her chances of achieving her goals and ideas."

Your Desired Objective

"Finds pleasure in the finer things of life. Wishes to over-indulge in a lavish, luxurious lifestyle."

Your Actual Problem

Fears others will try to hold her back from achieving her goals and the things she wants. Puts on the charm and can be manipulative towards others hoping she can get them to do as she wishes and making it easier for her to reach her own goals.

Your Actual Problem #2

Longs the freedom to make her own decisions and plans without the criticism and restrictions of others. Uses her charm to deal with others and get what she wants.

The Girl In Blue
In 1933, a girl dressed all in blue came to Willoughby, Ohio on a Greyhound bus. After spending the night at a boarding school and getting to meet everyone she decided to take a train to New York. Upon seeing the train, she dropped her luggage and sprinted for it. She was hit and killed by the train. No one knew her name or whether her death was an accident or a suicide.The only thing on her person was 90 cents and a ticket to Pennsylvania. 
Her identity remained a mystery until a title agency researched through some records and found her name — Josephine Klimczak. County records, however, have not changed the death certificate; she is still listed as The Girl in Blue.
The bottom of the grave reads “Unknown but not forgotten.”

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.
