Oh god thank fucking christ.
I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.
so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!
Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done
The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.
Reblogging this again because most people don’t/never know how normal these thoughts are, and that can be a major source of stress. It’s okay. You’re okay. Just, you know, don’t follow through on that shit.
That’s actually really reassuring. I will sometimes be driving down the road and have a weird thought during one of two instances: either driving really fast on the interstate or when I’m driving at a decent/moderate pace (like 55-60ish, can happen with or without an oncoming car) and I’ll just think “Ya know, it would really suck to get in a wreck right now.” or “If that car hit me, it’d sure hurt like hell” and then realize how morbid that sounds, but I don’t mean for it to be. Glad to know I’m not alone in that.

One time in high school a teacher called me a ‘she’
so I said, "I’m actually a boy, Miss."
Then one of my classmates slams his hands on the desks and shouts, "YOU’RE NO BOY!"
I turned around to him.
he said, “YOU’RE A MAN.”
I turned back around sheepishly smiling while all my male classmates cheered and shouted, my teacher simply smiled, apologized, and the lesson continued.
I’m thankful for that moment in my life, it gives me hope for the future.
That more trans people will be supported, and visible.
ppl joke about murder on this website all the time but i have to wonder exactly how many people there are here who have actually murdered someone because statistically it’s impossible that everyone here HASN’T murdered anyone
