Oh Naivete!

Haha, when I was 12, I remember specifically thinking, “Well this can’t last forever. I mean it has to be gone by the time I’m 18. Or DEFINITELY 21.” 

Nearly 24. Fuck me, haha

Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.

And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes you cannot even breathe deeply, and the night sky is no home,

and you have cried yourself to sleep enough times that you are down to your last two percent, but

nothing is infinite,

not even loss.

You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day

you are going to find yourself again.

Giving myself a break

I get so frustrated and angry with myself for “constantly” needing other people’s validation and reaffirmation that I’m not all the horrible things the depression says and I’m not ugly and I’m not gonna be alone forever. 

But realistically, who wouldn’t? If you were trapped in a cell with someone telling you those lies 24/7, would you start to doubt? If it had been 13 years? If it was actually just yourself telling you these things?

I fight away those thoughts and feelings for most of the day, and most of the time. Sometimes it isn’t easy, but I get it done. I live my life. It’s not that weird that in the last few hours of the day when I’m tired, I need someone to remind me that I’m fighting for the right thing. 

Anyone would get tired. Anyone would need validation. It’s a normal reaction to the situation. And that’s what I hope people understand. I’m not actually weak, whiny or needy. It’s a very appropriate amount of need for what I live with. And if anything, I’m actually pretty strong.

Pulling Back the Curtain on Sam Brownback's Kansas Financial Meltdown

Conservatives implement their crazy tax policies in Kansas, slashing taxes and shifting the burden from the wealthy and well-off, to the middle and lower classes. 

Result: gigantic financial hole. 

Reaction: Blame Obama, disregard all the data.

"how many times can i ask for the same comfort, complain about the same problems before they get tired of me and hate me?"

shrugs. idk how to describe how painful it is that I have to consider this everytime I think about talking to someone. but it is.

"But illegals are criminals who break the law!”

Says the out of touch person while jaywalking, who often drives faster than the speed limit, once stole a candy bar from a convenience store. 

It’s obviously not just about the law to them.
