Eeyore is just one of those characters that you wanna scoop up and hug forever.
One awesome thing about Eeyore is that even though he is basically clinically depressed, he still gets invited to participate in adventures and shenanigans with all of his friends. And they never expect him to pretend to feel happy, they just love him anyway, and they never leave him behind or ask him to change.
And he does feel happy, though. He can be happy. He just doesn’t show it as much as the others do.
There was a whole episode about that - Piglet sees him sitting on a hilltop and thinks he’s sadder than usual, and does all he can to cheer him up. Nothing works and the next day he’s back on the hill, and Piglet apologizes because he thinks in trying to help, he just made him sad again and ”I don’t come here when I’m sad. I come up here because I’m happy.”
There’s just something about that…

"You can tell so much about a person by the way they leave you."
when will people realize that mental illnesses don’t fucking discriminate?
eating disorders are not feminine
depression is not a “white” disease
ptsd does not limit to soldiers
you don’t have to be straight, white, and feminine to be mentally ill. your sexuality, gender, race, and history should not be liable to define your mental state. if you’re sick, you’re fucking sick and you shouldn’t base your susceptibility on who you are.

Some things friends/family in Hong Kong have shared with me today.
The people of Hong Kong are fighting for their right to democracy, free speech, and un-censored information. Protests have shut down major parts of the city. Police are attacking protesters with pepper spray and tear gas. Tanks are rolling through the streets.
In the West, Hong Kong is often lumped together with China. Many aren’t aware of the city’s incredibly complex, diverse culture, independent of China. Don’t overlook this. Don’t sit back as China breaks the promises it made to Hong Kong, endangering the lives and freedom of over seven million people.
Spread this like fire. We may be far away, but we can raise awareness.
I’m just going to put this here again, because as impressive as the professional photos on BBC/NYT/etc are, all of these pictures are from family/friends of mine, all of whom are people who are currently in Hong Kong, living through this. Perhaps just to me, that is more powerful than anything I’ll see on the front of a newspaper.
