I believe that all human beings are created in the image of God, and so I have no reason to fight people that hate me for being normal.

My apologies for not posting articles in the last month or so, I have been very busy with work and organizing bills and such so I can move out of my parents’ house. Although I will not be streaming anymore, I will continue to write for this blog into the foreseeable future. Following is an article I’ve written on mental health and the recent revelation on anti-depressants:

In modernity, we are enveloped in a slew of backwards ideas about our own selfish interpretation of mental wellbeing. It has become a problem of international scale, with people exhibiting normal, healthy reactions to unpleasant lives being categorized as mentally ill and put on pharmaceuticals that make their problems worse.

The key issue is that many people are told that they should not be concerned with the opinions of other people, that they come first. This perspective is wrong.

Most people who claim to have anxiety, an insecurity, have a reason to be insecure that is perfectly justified.

Most people that have depression are also like this, having a fundamental aspect of their lives that need changing.

Most people with ADHD are literally just boys with male personalities and brain structures than cannot function in the female tailored environment that is a public school.

This is the purpose of depression and anxiety – to let you know that there is something about yourself that needs to be changed in order to be successful in life. Yes, there are exceptions and genuine cases of mental illness, but the overwhelming majority of diagnosed cases of depression and anxiety are simply a manifestation of widespread societal laziness.

A recent review of scientific studies on the topic by researchers at University College London proved this to be the case in depression – or at least that the dominant narrative surrounding depression (that it is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain) is completely untrue.

The conclusions are clear: “The main areas of serotonin research provide no consistent evidence of there being an association between serotonin and depression, and no support for the hypothesis that depression is caused by lowered serotonin activity or concentrations.”

This means that millions of people have been prescribed anti-depressants like Prozac, which have incredibly harmful side effects to cure a disease that the drug has no effect on. It is hypothesized that anti-depressants literally only work as a placebo.

Therapy and anti-depressants work together to form a culture of personal complacency, where the individual is told that their feelings are just their feelings and have no broader impact on society. They are told that actually, they just have a disease and don’t have to change anything about their lives, and that they should simply take these pills to feel better, rather than fixing their lives and being better.

Too many times, I have seen people not come to classes at University for their “mental health” when the only real way of dealing with mental health issues, from personal experience, is to confront them head on with the full might of the soul.

My personal experiences with anxiety and depression are not uncommon in the modern world, unfortunately.

For years I intentionally avoided social settings out of the fear of being ostracized for my beliefs, and my personality. Ironic, isn’t it. I have made myself into the anti-social cretin I feared I would become. I don’t want to get into too much detail here, but yes, the views and personality traits I feared would be negatively received, are in fact, negatively received. This should not be considered surprising, considering I am an extreme internet racist. This however does not mean that it was intelligent or logical to intentionally ostracize myself out of fear of being ostracized by force. It is important to take control of your life, but in this way you are losing control of something vital – the perception held of you by the society.

My playing into the perception people have of me as a weird internet creep that’s probably racist by becoming anti-social only made my anxiety worse, forcing me into a downward spiral.

My diagnosis was for Mixed Anxiety-Depressive Disorder, meaning that my depression and suicidality stemmed directly from my anxiety. I was unknowingly, intentionally making myself want to kill myself.

The way I got out of feeling suicidal was simple, yet extremely challenging for someone who was conditioned into believing my issues were nothing but a chemical imbalance. I was always hostile to anti-depressants, which in hindsight is the most intelligent thing I could have been, even though I was just afraid of being on meds.

I had to force myself into social interactions, and instead of cowering away from the whiny liberal freaks that hate me for my views, I have either befriended them, or become confrontational or ambivalent towards the ones that are bigoted against me for my conservatism or my religion.

I am open about being Catholic, and about being “very right wing,” and those who are not willing to live with that no longer bother me. Especially those that spend their time obsessing over my posts and whining about me on Instagram.

I basically just needed to recognize, that these people that did those things to me, and still do to an extent live a much sadder existence than I did. Imagine being so obsessed over a person that broad-scale doesn’t even matter that much.

There are people that got so offended at a grown man having different opinions than them that they literally tattled to teacher. That is a much more miserable existence than anything I have been through, and I have been beaten up and threatened with stabbings when I was barely a teenager, and had close friends addicted to hard drugs.

They coach it in nonsense like “freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom from consequences” as if that sentence isn’t rife with internal contradictions (you don’t have free speech if you’re not free to speak, idiot). You need to realize that is not worth it to pander, apologize to these people. They are literally so devoid of any life meaning that they need to feel like they’re part of something important to feel like a valuable human being.

I believe that all human beings are created in the image of God, and so I have no reason to fight people that hate me for being normal.

I would much rather my perception be as an “alt-right troll that shills for Trump,” than as an anti-social weirdo, and it is much better for my mental health to be accepting and unapologetic for who I am.
