He’s a fuck racist bigot. I know I know it was a different time. Hell I make that argument myself on occasion. But the shit he says. Now I have misogyny to add to the pile.
"Asenath often made wild claims about the nature of consciousness and about its independence of the physical frame - or at least from the life-processes of the physical frame. Her crowning rage, however, was that she was not a man; since she believed a male brain had certain unique and far-reaching cosmic powers. Given a man’s brain, she declared, she could not only equal but surpass her father in mastery of unknown forces."

I mean come on now Lovecraft. I doubt most women had such opinions those are your fucked up opinions.
Sorry for the rant yall.
One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back to back they faced each other
Pulled out their swords and shot one another.
The deaf cop on the beat heard the noise
And came and shot the two dead boys.
When you’re feeling down, it’s so tempting to focus on your sadness: you wonder why you’re sad, you hate that you’re sad, you wish you weren’t sad. It’s completely natural to do this. But it’s the wrong way to be. No matter how smart you are— you will never change a bad mood by thinking about it. You will only magnify it.
Instead focus on your behavior. Focus on what you can change. Go outside. Exercise. Quit isolating yourself. Interact with friends and family. Accomplish things. Your mind will reward you with happiness.
It is so tough to change your behavior if you are feeling depressed. But it’s the only way. Don’t say: “I’ll act differently when I feel better.”
Act differently, and you will feel better.I reblog this for two reasons. Humans of New York is amazing and this is so very true and relevent to my life. I have know so many people who battle depression and I have dealt with it myself. It’s very hard to take this advice when you’re unhappy but it truely does help and faster than you would think.”
