崇高 The Sublime

Home Ask Archive

My name is ___, and I'm a 20-year-old English major. This is my "aesthetics" blog. I don't reblog just to have "pretty things", I enjoy collecting posts of sublime beauty, not simply superficial beauty (while that is nice too). I love color, softness, and light. Gradience, mystery, vastness and enormity give me special feelings that I cannot easily describe. Please enjoy what you find here =)

It’s Okay It’s Love(2014)

This drama is tragically and beautifully written. We rarely see the deglamorized reality of Mental Illness and the stigmas that come with it. I would highly suggest this drama to everyone! You don’t even have to be a drama fan to appreciate this amazingly well written story.

In some east Asian countries, mental illness carries even more of a stigma then it does in the UK and the US, which makes this film so much more important.

One of the key mistakes a LOT of people make when talking about OCD, is that they naturally gravitate towards talking primarily about the compulsive aspect of the illness, rather than the obsessions. It’s understandable why: the compulsions are the only part of OCD that is really visible. You can see someone doing a repetitive behavior and observable things are generally easier to explain and understand. Family members can see if their loved one is performing compulsive rituals while they can’t see into their loved one’s thoughts.

But I’ve always thought that was pointing at the smoke instead of the fire. It’s the obsessions that are at the heart of OCD and they often seem to get summed up and brushed aside so we can talk about hand-washing. But someone with OCD may not even have compulsions, either because they have Pure-O or they’re in the early stages of developing the disorder.

So I wanna kick off OCD Awareness Week by talking just about obsessions! [TW since I describe both personal and fictional examples of obsessions, sometimes involving death, violence, or self-harm]
