 I posted this in response to <user=littlebutfierce> 's awesome post about fandom and why she loves her parts of it  last week, and now a couple people have mentioned it to me as something that hit them, so I'm going to repost it here.  When I re-read it, it speaks to me so well i am surprised I wrote it.

"With my depression, there aren't so many things that give me joy, and I should be able to celebrate the shit out of the things that do. If I hate just about everything in the world, let me love what I do love hard and unrestrainedly. And even when we're teenagers, and allegedly immature enough to get away with enthusiasm, we start getting pressured to act cool, so we temper that enthusiasm so goddamn early. I'm done with it. No great art ever was made by dampening your love of anything. No great life was lived by pretending you didn't give a shit."

Word! And particularly helpful to me, since sometimes I can often perceive enthusiasm as pathological.
