I'm fine by DestinyBlue I'm fine by DestinyBlue
This. This. This and This again.

Story of my life at the moment. Not because I don't want to talk, because I can't. Unfortunately some things you have to go through alone. My piece Paint your Wings by DestinyBlue was also inspired by my situation, though things have got tougher recently. I am very lucky to have some very close friends I confide in though :) I appreciate and am so thankful for them. Sorry I can't share more online...

Its such at odds with my personality. I'm an eternal optimist. Anyone who knows me or has met me at a convention knows I love to laugh and it takes a lot to get me down, unfortunately this is. Well, its inspiration at least :)

One day I'll be able to tell everyone everything's not fine, but for now,

I'm fine.




Edit: Wow, never thought this would capture peoples imaginations like it did, it's almost a meme XD
Yes, I am the original artist, and no, I didn't copy anything else. I know there's loads like this around now but there certainly wasn't when I drew this in 2011! :) (Though I'm sure I'm not the only person to have come up with an idea like this XD)
I love that so many people have been inspired by this :heart:
If you use this as inspiration I'd love if you credited, that way I can put you in my special favorite folder: destinyblue.deviantart.com/fav…

On a personal note: The situation which is represented is (very thankfully) over. It was a really rough period of my life, which unfortunately triggered some mental health troubles, but the situation itself is as resolved as it'll ever be. I can stand today and know that I am a stronger and more compassionate person because of it.

Peace, love and post-it notes,
~Blue x

However, you don't know whether they are telling the truth or not. DestinyBlue posts a lot about mental health and her personal struggles, meaning her watchers feel that it is ok to open up about how they are feeling. If you see comments saying stuff like that, don't immediately dismiss them: that person may be going through a lot more than you think. Heart

I hope you don't mind when I disagree with you on a few points. This deviation is very old and considering that this user is very populare I think its one of the pictures which started this "trend" also, its called "vent" art, at the time this person had depressions (As far as i am aware, they are good now). This artwork is also very old so I think it would help the artist more when you judge a newer work of them.
Sorry if I botherd you, have a nice day

Overlord-Zorgon How do you know? Do you know this person? Do you know the sort of things they have been through? Because if not then A: You cannot say that they aren't telling the truth, and B: You have no right to dismiss what may be very real to the person you are insulting.

You may think that's "too many things" for the one person to go through, but it's not. My own brother has been diagnosed with PTSD, Social anxiety disorder, social phobia disorder (not to be mixed up) and depression. He is also under assessment for autism. At first, I thought there was NO WAY one person had that much going on, but through him and the help he is getting I've met more and more people who struggle with so many various special needs and disorders. Including this adorable 5 year old boy who spent a full day showing me everything he enjoyed. He has been diagnosed with OCD, ADHD, autism, dyspraxia AND dyslexia. All of those things are very real and do affect his life and the way he communicates, even the way he walks as the dyspraxia affects his mobility.

I understand that it can be difficult to accept, but it's true, and it is not your place to dismiss or insult someone merely because without knowing this person, you don't believe that what they are saying is true. That is not their fault or problem, that is you being sceptical. Which, again, I understand perfectly, but sometimes it's safer and less harmful to people to accept what they are saying.
I hope that clears it up a bit :) Heart

Yes i am going to be sceptical this person is telling people they have all these problems on deviantart. They're clearly begging for attention. I bet that girl i replyed to just 'Self Diagnosed' her self with them.

I'm not sure you understood my comment. What I meant was, I get it if you're sceptical, but also this is an art piece to do with mental illness by an artist who openly discusses their struggle with psychotic depression. So it makes sense that there are people here who are also sharing their experiences with mental illness. Also, sometimes it is better to accept what people are saying. For example in this case, you have no way of knowing whether this girl is self-diagnosed or not. So to avoid massively upsetting someone who is potentially mentally ill, it is far better to either A) choose to accept what they are saying, since (as I said) this is a piece about mental health so it is likely they are being truthful, or B) don't reply, just ignore them and move on. That way you don't risk tipping a mentally ill person over the edge, nor do you give that person any attention should they be lying.

I mean, even if you reply with hate you're still replying. That does still give the person attention, you know? So they still get what they want.

Thank-you for this comment and I 100% agree. Even tho there are a ton of attention-seekers (especially on the internet, where you can say whatever the heck you want), there are still people out there who deal with this stuff every day. And even the people who like their lives have bad days where they feel like they need to vent. ..Anyways: Not our place to judge. :)
