Is Mario ok
Mario is reflecting on life. Wondering why there is so much fighting and bloodshed. Having to fight people like his brother and lover on the battlefield, and getting his ass handed to him on a regular basis
It’s too much. His spirit has broken

i stopped believing in things once trix cereal stopped being shaped like fruit
What if they still are shaped like fruit but trix is for kids and we’re not kids anymore so we just see boring cereal?
When people say, “Stop being so depressed and just smile for God’s sake,” it makes me mad. Depression is a result of messed up brain chemistry, and while it can’t be fixed if the patient refuses to try and think positive, that’s not all depression is. Always seeing the negative side of a situation as the predominant side is pessimism. Depression is this intense self-hatred and a feeling that you’re worthless. It’s feeling like you’d be better off dead and being unable to believe people who say that they’d rather that not happen. It’s a result of the serotonin receptors in your brain improperly processing serotonin, and it can’t be fixed by simply thinking positive. I have depression, and a lot of the time it’s hard for me to even get out of bed, let alone go out and function normally and on top of that, see the goddamn brIGHT side of things.
People who don’t have mental illnesses act like they’re a choice. They act like we—that is, the sufferers of these illnesses—enjoy it. They act like we enjoy the attention it gets us. NO. I hate that I’m such a burden to my parents, and I hate how much money they’re having to spend on my treatment, and I hate the way people react when they find out about my mental illness.
When people find out I have depression, they sometimes react empathetically. But sometimes, they react with disgust. They say “Haven’t you tried THINKING POSITIVE?” WHY DON’T YOU TRY NOT HAVING ANXIETY? IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD” Yes, I know that. There’s a reason it’s called mental illness.
I once had a boy say to me, “I’m going to force you into an embarrassing situation to cure you of your social anxiety.” Anxiety attacks are horrible and painful and just generally undesirable and forcing someone to have one isn’t exactly the proper way to cure them of their anxiety disorder. His logic was “well that’s how they cure phobias” no shut the fuck up. that requires consent.
The similarity between mental and physical illness is barely there. In both cases, the patient has no control over it. Cancer patients can’t just wishtheir cancer away. You wouldn’t dream of suggesting something like that to a cancer patient. Would you? Mental illnesses are the same way. Just as no one would wish to have cancer, no one would ever wish for depression, or social anxiety, or schizophrenia (which, by the way, sucks).
Don’t think that just because it’s an illness of the mind, which you’re supposed to have complete control over, it can be easily fixed by just changing your outlook on life. Some parts of the brain can’t be controlled.
