Saying goodbye to Cory and Finn on last night’s Glee was difficult. I watched off a stream in Italy at 3 a.m., one of my weirder Glee-watching situations. It was a numb sort of feeling, which is usually my way of dealing with grief. And then I wrote about it until almost 6 a.m.
There’s no perfect way to do this sort of an episode, but “Glee” gave Cory and Finn a heartfelt send-off the way they knew best. Where “Glee” often falls shorts is continuity, and this is their greatest test. Cory and Finn were part of the great heartbeat of “Glee,” and hopefully instead of letting this loss throw off their rhythm, they’ll forge ahead. Let the characters grow from this, let this sit with them forever, and let “Glee” move forward as something that brings joy but doesn’t forget its new foundation.
My therapist asked me to create something “motivating” so I made these.
These are awesome! Really. You hit everything on the “list” and in a humorous way which makes it more awesome. Everything from taking a shower to remembering your meds when your depressed is a major challenge. All these things are things I struggle with when I hit a depressive episode. I’m sure they seem silly and small to those without a mood disorder, but they’re huge accomplishments to those of us who are sufferers and we should acknowledge that. tl;dr You rock, holyhotpantsbatman!
seeing these on my dash made me feel loads better, even if i cried more than once today and still don’t have healthy sleeping habits.
