What if people who have anxiety are just unaccustomed to the way the world works because this is the first incarnation of their soul on the earth? And confident people are at ease with the world because they have already been incarnated multiple times and, in a sense, already know how the world works.


What if it’s the other way around?

I don’t know which disturbs me more.

Yo, tumblr grammar

I just realized why no one understood me yesterday when I said “I CAN’T MATH” hahaha. Totally valid sentence construction

Beat It (Demo)
by Michael Jackson
from The Ultimate Fan Extras Collection


As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.

One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.

"Why is it not valid to show that a white woman who was married to her husband when she had children, who has tried to get an education which will lead to a higher paying job, who is employed, who is not addicted and is not abusive is still stuck in poverty? Wouldn’t some people who say, “that’s so sad, but what can you expect under X circumstances?” possibly begin to think a bit harder about the world we live in after watching this? This documentary probably won’t help the millions long term either, but it’s not going to hurt them either, and some people will see it and remember that wages in America are terrible and make it really, really hard for most people to get beyond subsistence level work and living."

does your brain ever just produce disturbingly violent thoughts out of nowhere
like terrible, horrible, thoughts
for no reason at all
and then you snap out of it and you’re like 
i don’t want to kill my mom
what the fuck

they’re called intrusive thoughts and apparently are very common

If the same thought comes back over and over and it won’t stop, or a lot of thoughts constantly, that’s when it’s time to talk to someone about it.

Persistent and disturbing intrusive thoughts or imagery, especially if they are bad enough to interfere with your everyday life, are present in a number of mental illnesses, including OCD. There’s a threshold, of course—intrusive thoughts happen sometimes even In neurotypical folks, so it doesn’t automatically mean you have OCD or any other mental health condition, but if it is interfering in your life, and you can access a mental health care provider, that’s an option you may want to consider.

I have OCD and intrusive thoughts are something I’ve dealt with most of my life; they’re not as bad currently as they were before I was medicated, but they still happen, especially when I’m very stressed or anxious. They can be really graphic and upsetting. Just remember it doesn’t make you a bad person. If anyone ever needs to talk about it, my ask box is open.

"The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
