EEEK so one of my best friends just told me she has a date this week-her first date with another girl. I am literally so excited for her. She seems so excited about it and I just honor her for really trying to create her own happiness and listening to her inner voice. This girl has the most beautiful soul and deserves so much happiness I just can’t wait to hear about how it goes!
That being said, she is very nervous about how people will react to it. She is afraid of people judging her cruelly and even bullying or mistreating her siblings because of her decisions. It makes me so unbelievably joyous to hear her talk so excitedly about the date, but at the same time hearing her ambivalence and anxiety about how others will treat her because of it makes me so sad and reminds me that we still have work to do here.
The fact is, is that she is TRYING. She is exploring, she is following her instincts, she is trying to find happiness. We talked about how people might label her as “confused” or “trying to get attention”. Well to the first one, if being confused means being curious and exploring different paths to find happiness, what the hell is wrong with being confused? None of us have all the answers. To the second, well, I would tell anyone who tries saying she’s trying to get attention to back the fuck off and get a life instead of putting down others for trying to live their life to the fullest.
It would be really cool if you could like this, comment, or reblog in support of her and everyone else out there who is struggling in this world to just be themselves-to follow their heart even when that means facing ridicule, judgement, and criticism from others. It takes so much strength and bravery to truly be yourself in this world and I am so proud of her for taking this step in her search for true happiness and peace. People like her give me hope
First valentine’s day is a full moon, and in two weeks my boyfriend and I celebrate our 1 year on the new moon. This is one of those moments I feel like somewhere a higher power is looking down ans giggling at me. lol JOKES
you don’t even recognize your reflection anymore
when you see yourself in the mirror you can’t help
but wonder, why on earth…
why here? why now? why me?
Eventually you get sick of searching your eyes
for the answers you yearn for so
you stop looking.
Glimpsing in the mirror becomes a nightmare,
the eyes are no longer yours.
You don’t know where they came from
or who they belong to, so you
keep your distance.
As the hole grows deeper, your life begins to feel
like every turn is a dead end
and every burn that you
try to mend eats away at
your flesh at an accelerating pace.
Nothing you do can erase all the scars.
Make them go away.
