I wish I was creative and good at making stuff? Arty and shit. Instead I’m just sitting here eating peanut butter icecream, but hey, peanut butter icecream

THIS IS SUPER COOL THOUGH IF YOU UNDERSTAND HORSES. LIKE THAT NIPPING IS A GROOMING BEHAVIOR HORSE’S DO TO BOND AND TO MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE SOCIAL BONDS. SO THAT HORSE IS BASICALLY TREATING THE CAT AS PART OF THE HERD AND SUSTAINING THE FRIENDLY BOND.
IT IS SAYING, “this tiny horse is very tiny but we are friends. Look at my tiny friend.”
Here are a few signs I’ve learnt to recognise mean that I’m heading downwards into a depressive episode:
- I start buying lots of things (not in a manic way, more in a ‘I need something to make myself feel better way’)
- I start consciously thinking about how I could be cooler
- I make more and more (than usual) lists, Excel spreadsheets, charts and plans on how I can organise my life and make myself a ‘better’ [nicer/skinnier/richer/funnier/more interesting] person
- I forget things - words, tasks, whatever - more than usual
The good thing is that, now I see when it’s happening more clearly, I can take control of it more easily. It’s not like before where it felt like I was on a runaway rollercoaster plunging down with this fear that I’d crash at the bottom and I wouldn’t know what to do; now I freak out less with the worry that the big downs are here to stay/that I’m going to hit the bottom, and now I know that I am better equipped to deal with them.
