23 is not much, but it’s enough: I’m officially too old for Tumblr.
I really thought Tumblr could grow into something inspiring(some blogs are still great), but people are just getting worst. It’s a competition for “best blog”, “prettier girl”, “biggest fandom”…
And there’s the thing that annoys me the most: people complaining about being depressed, making jokes about being depressed, trying to be “the most depressed kid in Tumblr”. I’ve been depressed for almost two years. I take two different pills everyday, I go to a psychologist every week and it is not fun. It is not glamorous.
I know each person deals with depression differently and talking about our personal experiences might help others, but people should be more careful when they talk/write about it. Most things I read on Tumblr are not written by people who are really depressed and if someone who’s been wondering if they are sick or not reads these things, it can be confusing.
So don’t wish you were depressed, don’t say you are just to impress other people or make them feel sorry for you. That’s not depression, but maybe you do need help in some other way ;)
I do hope some bloggers will grow up, too, and stop trying to hurt/annoy/bother/harass other users (yes, dear anonymous, I’m talking about you). Fortunately, I know many bloggers smart and confident enough to not let this things get to them.
Tumblr, you’ve been a good friend, but I believe we have grown apart and it’s time we go separate ways. I’ll still visit you, but our relationship is not the same. It’s time to say goodbye.
(I’ll be waiting your “burned” messages, sweeties)
