I agree with all of this and I am really really glad that you’re being understanding about this.

Ahhh thank you, you’re super fantastic.
I do hope that I haven’t offended anyone by asking about this and I’s rather not have others think that I’m just trying to be ‘super special’ and unique. I just want to know if there’s a way to better describe myself, even if it ends up being that I am, in fact, cis and straight.

Thank you a lot! I really appreciate the support and you guys don’t have to do anything, I would just like more information on this kind of stuff since I’m obviously new.

Cont.: What I’m saying is that you won’t find yourself by picking a silly special snowflake label that sorta applies to you and then trying to live with that stereotype. Labels are dangerous. You need to find your true self without all these labels. I know having a word to describe yourself would make everything easier, but then you risk limiting who you really are
Labels are a nice way of feeling like you aren’t alone in the way that you feel, that there’s a word for the things that you are experiencing is really really nice. And I agree that labels can be very limiting, but I don’t feel that in my case, and in many other’s, they’re harmful. And I am trying to find out who I am by trying on and exploring already established words and adjectives and shrugging off those that don’t feel right then moving on from there.
I haven’t claimed to actually be either of those things, just that I might be and would like to talk about it with others who know themselves to help me figure that stuff out.
And I think you’re trying to be helpful here, but honestly?
I AM mentally ill. I have tired to commit suicide. I am depressed and I have a shit ton of anxiety. For a fun bonus I’m also trying to deal with all the repercussions of being in an emotionally abusive relationship for two years and seeing my ex all over campus and in social settings here at school.
You don’t like labels? Fine, don’t use them. I don’t really have anything against that. But saying that someone is trying to be a “super special snowflake” by identifying themselves by these labels is extremely un-fucking-necessary and you sound like a huge condescending douchebag. And I will gladly take those mentally ill individuals’ “bullshit” to yours any day.
I remember this being a joke, but now I’m horribly curious
Do screamo singers warm up for screaming and how does that effect their voice??
