things ppl rly need to stop glorifying
- not going outside
- having social anxiety
- being socially awkard
- spending all of your time on the internet
- not talking to people
- disliking people
The reason people who inhabit these traits and/or behaviors are glorifying it is because we have been made to feel ashamed for it most of the time. I think that by glorifying our own ‘bad behaviors’ we feel better about ourselves and can accept that they are a part of us.
This excludes the last one of course, but that goes without saying.
I am sorry if I have offended anyone by reblogging this, and I get your point of view and your reasoning. As all the mentioned points are by far no stranger to me, too, and I have too experienced being ashamed for some of these traits, I have, however, oftentimes felt offended when seeing posts that glorify being afraid of crowds or people, etc.
Those posts made me feel like these behaviors that I have aren’t to be taken seriously, but are kind of a joke and something basically everyone says of themselves if they once felt like they’ve said anything awkward in a conversation or didn’t feel like dealing with people.
Don’t get me wrong, I am all for raising awareness and acceptance of those behaviors and traits, and making people understand. I love little things, like drawings, or pictures, or quotes that give courage and talk about it openly and make us feel better.
But I don’t like things that I have obviously problems with being glorified for the sake of fun and pointing out how “weird” and “special” and “so not normal” a person is. I don’t like these things being glorified for the purpose so a person can use them as a kind of “badge”, a kind of medal.
The same goes for the subjects of depression, self-harming and anxiety in general, which are even harder for me, since they hit even closer to home.
I am weary of seeing posts that glorify any of these, when in fact, there’s not a grain of glory to be found in them.
It’s all just crap that hits you, and I would be happy living without it.
Again, I apologize if I have offended you or anyone else, it was not my intention, and I understand where you’re coming from. This is merely my opinion.
It wasn’t directed to you specifically, just thought i’d share my own point of view. :)
Shintaro Ohata Seamlessly Blends Sculpture and Canvas to Create 3D Paintings
When first viewing the artwork of Shintaro Ohata up close it appears the scenes are made from simple oil paints, but take a step back and you’re in for a surprise. Each piece is actually a hybrid of painted canvas and sculpture that blend almost flawlessly in color and texture to create a single image.
