In conversation with Female Parental Unit about depression and getting an appointment to see about antidepressants, this was ever said to someone in response:
"I just want to feel better…"
"Well join the crowd."
That. That right there. That is BULLSHIT. Never in my life have I hated someone so much as I do the person who said that to someone very special to me.
You don’t say that to a person who’s been dealing with shitty feelings and the knowledge that they were the result of you getting knocked up in college for their entire existence. I don’t care how you feel, how hard life is on you, that is your CHILD. The person you RAISED.
I’ve seen her good side, the happy, smiling, sweet girl that’s hidden under a shell of self-loathing, self-harm, and suicidal breakdowns. I’ve talked her down from suicide TWICE since I’ve known her.
You fuckup of a human being, you are not a parent. You are a stupid failure and you deserve no one’s love for how you’ve raised such a charming, intelligent girl.
It’s all she could do a few days ago not to wreck the car on purpose coming back from a visit with you. She thought of ME. I’m the one who’s saving her from you, and herself. You’re making everything worse for her. You monster.
If there is a higher being, they must’ve been really happy with me that day, letting me get through and make her feel loved where you’ve failed. I make her happy, even if she’s completely in the throes of depression. She tells me I’m the only one who doesn’t make her feel like a burden.
She says she feels special. Important. Loved.
Now how does that make YOU look?
Depression is a disease, make no mistake. Von Trier can romanticize it all he wants, but depression is a stasis, it’s a dead end. Succumbing to it is to surrender to death. And he can go on and on about how hollow our culture is and how shallow life is, but, what of it? I’m alive. And I can experience the new and share it. Here, now, I’m alive. And what happier thing can be said? And we should all keep creating and sharing. Because, in the words of a better filmmaker: “Our songs will all be silenced, but what of it? Go on singing.
