I think tumblr has left a lot of us emotionally stunted. This is a great community for empowerment, catharsis, or coping, but those things aren’t recovery in and of themselves. Comparatively, they’re easy when compared to the painful self-reflection and real-world scenarios you’ll have to encounter on the road to true recovery. Not only does Tumblr not focus enough on recovery, but there’s almost a disdain here for the very notion.

There’s a lot of time spent validating everything. “Your symptoms are valid! Your responses are valid! Your depression is valid! Your coping is valid!” Well, yeah, all that stuff is definitely valid, and understanding that is important step in recovery, but it’s certainly not the final step. All that stuff is valid in the same way a baby chewing on a teething ring is valid, and there’s nothing to be embarrassed about if your recovery is still in its infancy, but Tumblr almost encourages you to stay there, to never grow out of it.

There’s a difference between what’s valid and what’s healthy, what’s best for you. I recently saw a post that validated people who stay in their room all day. Is that a valid response to anxiety? Sure. Is it a healthy response? Hell no, and there isn’t a person on Earth who can convincingly make the argument that the best thing you can do for your anxiety is to never leave your room.

Or how about those “how to care for a _________” posts? They’ve got some great tips there, and a lot of what they say is true, but you cannot reasonably expect people to coddle your issues, insecurities, or self-perceived inadequacies. Your recovery has to come from you. It has to be a difficult decision you make with yourself and carry through with because you need it. Your recovery can’t come from hoping other people will validate you.

No one should be ashamed of where they are in their recovery process, but there’s also no reason why you should be in the same place with your issues as you were in 2010.

Your final goal is not validation. It isn’t empowerment. It isn’t finding a way to get through the day. It isn’t being comfortable with your problems, nor is it accepting that they’ll never go away. The final goal is health. The final goal is happiness. The final goal is contentment. The final goal is recovery.

Bolded is mine. This covers a lot of things I hate about Tumblr, as their process of validating mental illnesses tends to make people believe that validating = curing. 

I think one of the things that struck me most unhealthy about Tumblr was the cries demanding people give “trigger warnings” before posting.

As is well known by now a few years ago I had my life come to a screeching halt by a complete mental breakdown that left me hospitalized for some time. The culprit was undiagnosed OCD, the grand-daddy of all anxiety disorders. Of all the labours in my life my recovery was the hardest and it is by no means complete and I don’t know that it ever will be. It is a daily struggle measured in inches.

Things that can trigger an anxiety or full blown panic attack in me are many and varied and sometimes remarkably mundane. It is a full time job for me to deal with these triggers. But one of the first things I learned in therapy is that job is mine and mine alone. It is not for my family nor friends and most certainly not for the world at large much less random people on the internet to protect me from being exposed to the things that can trigger my anxiety. It is for me to deal with my anxiety in a way that does not cause harm to myself. DBT and CBT (that is cognitive behaviour therapy, not cock and ball torture…) gave me the tools I need to do the work I must do. Isolating myself from my anxieties wasn’t the answer and demanding the world around me bend to deflect my anxieties is not only selfish, it’s unhealthy. Unhealthy for me and unhealthy for the people around me.

Now not every day am I the master of my own personal demons. There are some days I just need to lock myself away in my room. There are many, many times I have to pick and choose my battles. But in the grand sense I am making the effort to be on the move, onward and upward. I am carving out my place in the world where I can be as healthy and productive as I can.

I hate the posts where being an introvert is treated as a special needs child.

If I would have made this into a porn blog, none of you would be questioning if I was the original vegan dog poster.

Bitch, porn doesn’t starve dogs.

I just wanna say I really enjoy and agree with your opinions on pretty much anything.

Maggie Menu
On the menu for Maggie tonight is puréed sweet potato, puréed brown rice, sprouted organic tofu, chia seeds, and digestive enzymes. Does she look excited? She is!

This dog does not look excited, this dog looks malnourished.
The diet you are feeding your dog places a huge burden entirely on the pancreas, forcing it to produce large amounts of amylase to deal with the starch, cellulose, and carbohydrates in plant matter. (yes, even with your supplements) The carnivore’s pancreas does not secrete cellulase to split the cellulose into glucose molecules, nor have dogs become efficient at digesting and assimilating and utilizing plant material as a source of high quality protein. 
When this stuff sits in the pet’s intestine (yes even with your supplemented enzymes) it not only irritates the lining of the bowels but also provides the perfect warm, wet environment with plenty of undigested sugars and starches as food for bacteria. 
I respect your choice in leading a vegan lifestyle, but please do not force this on your pet who does not recognize the difference, your dog absolutely needs a healthier diet or it is going to develop health issues and I guarantee you, will not live as long as it could otherwise. 

fuckin animal abuse
your dog cannot be vegan you sick fuck
how can you even tag this as “vegan dog”, youre screaming to the world that you are knowingly depriving this dog of what it needs.

Re blogging because this is just wrong.
Dogs cannot be vegan.

DOGS AND CATS ARE NOT VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN!
STOP IT, YOU’RE EMBARRASSING AND SADDENING THE REST OF US

I’m not sure how many times it will need to be stated before this becomes common knowledge, but I am determined to make it known, so here it is again:Dogs and cats are biologically adapted to eat meat. And while dogs may not be obligate carnivores like cats, they DO NOT HAVE A DIGESTIVE TRACT SUITED FOR A VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN DIET ALONE. Dogs, like wolves, have adapted to eat certain plant products when meat is scarce. They do this only in rare instances, and only when nothing else is available. Just because they are capable of eating small amounts of plant foods doesn’t mean they can thrive on a diet consisting of that and that alone. In fact, a dog’s intestine is too short to fully-process a proper range of nutrients obtained from your sweet potato and rice dish. You are literally robbing your pet of important nutrients, leaving him malnourished and susceptible to bacterial infestations and disease. 
Militant vegans seem to think they’re the experts on telling people which animals are adapted to eat which diets (clearly humans shouldn’t eat meat because we don’t have claws and fangs, amiright?). And yet when it comes to their pets, they break all the rules of their own ideology and feed what is obviously a carnivorous mammal a diet that is clearly not suitable for them.
So ask yourself: “Why am I really forcing my dog to eat this?” Is it because it makes you feel better about yourself? It’s clearly not for the benefit of your dog. You are imposing your will upon this animal in a manner which is detrimental to his health. This is abuse, plain and simple. 

This is actually wrong. Cats CANNOT be vegan. Dogs can, however, be vegetarian if it is necessary. Some digestive issues of dogs (mostly pure breeds) make it so they can’t break down meat protein but instead must rely on vegetable proteins and the like. I don’t know if that’s the case with this dog but it could be(especially since it specifically states there are added digestive enzymes), cats are definitely not able to be vegetarians but dogs are a different matter entirely. Look on pet MD, ask your vet. It is possible, especially if they *need* to cut out animal protein due to genetic disorders.

That’s actually not like a thing? It’s an excuse people use. Dogs can have certain meat allergies (my lab mix can’t have chicken, my cat can’t have any fish) but dogs are built to digest meat, not plant matter.
"Especially in purebreds" source please

NO NO NO FUCKING NO STOP
The fucking ‘digestive enzymes’ added to that disgusting excuse for ‘dog food’ are there specifically because dogs by themselves cannot digest it properly. EVERY. FUCKING. VEGAN. OR. VEGETARIAN. ‘HOMEMADE’. DOG FOOD. HAS. THEM. At least the ones that are made by people who aren’t absolutely blind to the fact that dogs cannot digest plant shit.
Fun fact - dog has a meat allergy? Usually its only an allergy to one type of meat, like lamb, or beef, or fish, or poultry. Surprise! You don’t have to feed a veg*n diet if your dog has a meat allergy! YOU JUST SWITCH TO A DIET THAT DOESN’T INCLUDE THAT MEAT PROTEIN.
Holy fuck the lengths people will go to to excuse veg*n diets. It’s disgusting. There is no reason to force an animal to subsist on a diet that is actively causing it harm.
PS Just because Dogs can ‘survive’ better on a veg*n diet than cats doesn’t make it right.
