I don’t often talk about it, but Evangelion is one of my all time favorites and Rebuild 3.0 has left me with all these emotions that need an outlet.

the worst feeling ever is when you can feel somebody starting to get annoyed with you and the smile kind of falls from your face and there is this deep aching pain in your chest that feels like someone is squeezing your heart so you just kind of look down at your hands and act like nothing is wrong
It’s not an incapacity to cope with day to day living in the modern world. It’s an incapacity to function. At all. If you and your loved ones have been spared, every blessing to you. If depression has taken root in you or your loved ones, every blessing to you, too. No one chooses it. No one deserves it. It runs in families, it ruins families. You cannot imagine what it takes to feign normalcy, to show up to work, to make a dentist appointment, to pay bills, to walk your dog, to return library books on time, to keep enough toilet paper on hand, when you are exerting most of your capacity on trying not to kill yourself. Depression is real. Just because you’ve never had it doesn’t make it imaginary. Compassion is also real. And a depressed person may cling desperately to it until they are out of the woods and they may remember your compassion for the rest of their lives as a force greater than their depression. Have a heart. Judge not lest ye be judged.
