Dear Loved One,
I was just emptying my inbox (I’ve fallen way behind in correspondence) and noticed that I never got back to you. I trust you have found (or replaced) your car keys by now? I did check my bedside table and they weren’t there.
While I have you, I might as well mention something that’s been nagging me: it dawned on me that you might be sitting there all warm and comfy in that safe little bubble called “ordinary life” debating whether you should join GISHWHES or not.
Perhaps there’s even a little angel on your shoulder whispering:
”Sweety, GISHWHES is scaaaary. It’s the unknown. We like the known. We like routine, and safety, and apple sauce. Besides you have so many responsibilities and obligations to attend to! Life is fine just the way it is…”
And then on your other shoulder, a little devil:
“BOOOORING! Screw normal! Do GISHWHES. Let’s get MESSY! I wanna dress up! I wanna yell in public! Your friends are lame! Let’s make new ones. International ones! Let’s mix things up a bit! Flick that whining angel off your shoulder and let’s register!”
Now, for career-preservation reasons, I normally side with the angels, but in this case, gotta admit, old Lucipher makes a strong point…
Registration closes this Sunday.
Why not join me and thousands of others as we turn the world upside down in the best possible way.
Just a thought. Anyway, stop by again sometime soon. I have tons of rhubarb in the garden and I’ve been making some killer pies.
If you’re not receiving GISHWES e-mails then you are missing out.
Soo I recently signed up on allpoetry and found a Loki contest so I took part. Thought I’ll share it here.
The inside and the outside of a person
are two different things.
The way he presents himself
and the way he feels
it does not always match.
He is known
to everyone around him
as a trickster.
A person who finds amusement
in tricking others.
A person who seems
But a behaviour like this
is often misleading.
What he does feel is
and on the ground.
It is the feeling of not fitting in
that makes him doubt himself.
His search for an answer
seems never ending.
A look around
does not help.
The father, the king
he is a stranger.
The brother, the hero
he is superior.
Just the mother, the queen
she is loving.
The answer though
is still hidden.
Only the touch of the enemy
reveals the truth.
that has been there
from the start.
The colour of his skin
it is blue.
And thus his origin
a frost giant.
i tried to scroll past this but that one reblog just might save somebodies life
I tried to scroll too..
don’t do it.
You can’t just scroll past. It could mean life or death for one more person.
Nope, tried to. I’m not that strong. You should live, because I think you are pretty fricking awesome.
I’d care if anyone did
Soo I just made this my desktop background :D
Don’t know why or what that says about me but I like it :p
Every time you reach some happiness, it seems that life pushes you back to sadness again. Just keep pushing the bar towards happiness! It’ll get easier eventually. c:
I actually really love this. Maybe I’m over analyzing a cartoon, but whatevs. Look how hard his legs are working to push him forward, and the smile that slowly spreads across his face as he goes. It’s lovely, it’s progressive. Even when life shoves him backward he is fighting it by sticking his legs down far to root and ground himself. It’s like, you can try as hard as you want, but life still throws lemons at you occasionally and it’s what you do with them that gauges your happiness. So fight hard and push on forward.

Aww thank you very much, lovely Anon! Would you mind coming off anon? :-)
This post is for all of you who have survived the urge to end your life, either coming out the other side or still fighting to stay alive.
I noticed how when someone has a physical illness such as cancer, and they come out the other side or even remission, they are able to celebrate surviving. I think all of the survivors of being suicidal should too.
Congratulations, and keep on fighting.
not just followers, everyone.
I’m here if any of you need to talk<3
The best part is, this post actually does something, it offers support, unlike one of those useless “reblog if you care” posts.
Yooo my country’s not in this list so here’s the suicide hotline for Indonesia: (+62)21-500454
Reblog this around!
I’ve seen a lot of posts on my dash tonight about users who are threatening suicide, with other Tumblr members posting in effort to try to get ahold of them. I think you all should see this:
IF THERE IS EVER A TUMBLR USER WHO HAS POSTED A GOOD-BYE MESSAGE, SUICIDE NOTE, VIDEO, OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POST.
1. Scroll to the top of your dashboard.
2. See the circular question mark icon at the top? It’s the third one over from your home symbol. Click on that, and a screen similar to the one in the picture will come up.
3. Where you can type in questions, the box with the magnifying glass at the top, type in the word “suicide.”
4. Click on the first link that shows up. It should say, “Pass the URL of the blog on to us.”
5. Type in the user’s URL and tell Tumblr admin that the user is contemplating suicide and has posted a message indicating that they are going through with it or will be attempting. Hit send! Tumblr administration will perform a number of actions to contact the user and take the necessary steps to prevent the suicide.
TUMBLR: THIS COULD SAVE A USER’S LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE SUICIDE THREATS.
Reblog this to keep other users aware. Suicide isn’t a joke, and neither is someone’s life. If you didn’t know this, someone else may not, either. Pass it on.
why on earth doesn’t this have more notes
I actually had to do this once. She lived.
if you scroll past this on your dash you are absolutely heartless.
Reblog this!! This can save somebody’s life!
