I demand unconditional love and complete freedom. That is why I am terrible.

tomorrow is my birthday
I’m gonna be twenty-three goddamned years old
I feel braver and stronger than I ever have in my whole life
shit’s still hard but I’m just so much better equipped to handle it now
I thought that as I grew up things would get easier- they don’t. You just get better at dealing with them.
this is what growing up feels like and this is okay
Look, you’re a feminist who, in this particular case, made the non-feminist choice. That’s all. I assume it was the right choice for you, or you wouldn’t have done it, and that’s fine! But feminism is not, in fact, all about choosing your choice. It is mostly about recognizing when things are fucked up for women at the societal level, and talking about that, and trying to change it. So sometimes, even when a decision is right for you, you still need to recognize that you made that decision within a social context that overwhelmingly supports your choice, and punishes women who make a different one.

You are made
out of comets
Do not surround
yourself with those
that treat you like
dirt and dust.
