"But what will that tattoo look like when you’re old?”
"But what will that tattoo —"
"But what will —"
The answer: FUCKING BEAUTIFUL.
No, it’s not “interesting” to sense things that probably are not there.
No, it’s not “awesome” to drift between different realities.
No, it’s not “lovely” to think you are something or someone else.
No, it’s not “cute” to sound like an insecure drunk person, all the time.
No, it is NOT glorious to be cursed with a mental illness in general.
Stop this. Please.

Okay, had to get that off my chest.
Let me explain my personal experience with triggers. I have PTSD from hell. I am working with my therapist and psychiatrist to deal with it, but certain things bring me to a very, very bad place. Not “uncomfortable” bad, but flashback-to-horrific-things bad.
Would you trigger a war vet who you knew couldn’t handle explosions, or would you tell him before you set off fireworks? Obviously, no, you wouldn’t. So why the hell would you trigger a survivor of rape, violence, abuse, or anyone who has gone through the various forms of hell? Why would you induce someone to self harm or to enter a really horrific mental state by bringing it up when you could just type in a little tag?
I do what I can to avoid my triggers. But certain situations, I need a little help. For example, in certain types of cars, I cannot handle sitting in the passenger seat. It’s a hyperventilating, flashback, panic attack sort of deal. So my siblings know to take that seat and just let me sit in the back or drive. Doesn’t inconvinience anyone and makes me a hell of a lot more comfortable and mentally okay.
Basically, why wouldn’t you take five seconds of your time to enter a tag to prevent ruining someone’s day/week/month?
