    I can't stand moral absolutism. You know, there's always that guy who wants to point out that Martin Luther King cheated on his wife– as if he obviously couldn't have been a great person if he did something like that. Or someone will bring out an inspirational quote, and get you to agree, and then inform you that H.itler said it. As if a good thought couldn't come from H.itler. Moral absolutism keeps us from learning from the past. It's easy to say: ‘H.itler was a demon. N.azis were all bad seeds.’ That's simple. It's much harder to say: ‘Is that humanity? Is that me?’

    What if everything in the world were a misunderstanding,
    what if laughter were really tears?

    It’s amazing what storms your face can hide, what terrible wrecks can writhe and heave beneath, without one ripple on the surface.

    You have to accept that sometimes that’s how things happen in this world. People’s opinions, their feelings, they go one way, then the other. It just so happens you grew up at a certain point in this process.

    Let go of control. Social situations and relationships are infinitely complex, and you will never be able to control how people think and feel, especially about you. So let it go and allow things to happen to you. Allow people to dislike you, judge you, or talk about you because that is them and you are you. And you will always be anxious. You will always be paranoid and scared. But you will also always be brave, and kind, and sincere, and warm, and open, open, open. Despite your corny sense of humor and the resting b.itch face permanently set on your face. Trying to be friendly and funny with people who are determined to dislike you is kind of like Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump running for President: people are going to doubt your intentions and then nobody’s gonna believe you’re for real. So regardless of the invisible teeth gnawing at the insides of your stomach, continue to go out with people and treat them nicely. No matter what you know (or think you know) they think and say about you. It’s not about proving them wrong, no. It’s about confirming to yourself that you are a good person, a worthy friend because even if others think of you like crap (however misguided or right they may be), you don’t have to do the same to them because you represent yourself, not others. It’s okay if you don’t have a group of girls to take #friendshipgoals photos with or a fun group of people to be #squadgoals with. Go to a party for the party, for the music, for that one girl who didn’t listen to all the rumors about you. Go there for yourself. Friends will come if they want to come. If they don’t, there are 7 billion people in the world, 7 continents, and approximately 4,000 cities. You’ve yet to meet some of the best people in your life who can understand, accept, and respect your weird ticks and flaws, and recognize your best intentions. It’s difficult, I know, and most days you will have to keep telling yourself ten times a day that you’re okay, you’re fine, there’s nothing wrong with you, you will find more friends. But you know what? Would you really want to hang out with the type of people who make an effort to talk you down and cast you out? People are allowed to say no to a friendship, and you are not entitled to anyone’s good graces. Relationships are a two-way street, and it won’t matter how much you give when the other refuses to receive and give back, and such is their right. Instead, embrace your alone and find someone who you don’t have to convince to care for you, embrace you, and see the good in you. Find someone who you don’t have to constantly convince to stay.

    Breaking up with someone you love doesn't make you stronger... It just leaves your heart calloused.

    You're drowning in shallow water and people are screaming at you to stand up, to just stand up. But you can't and they don't understand how much it hurts to try. You're paralysed from the waist down and every attempt at shifting is pure agonising pain. They keep screaming at you and you scream back, forcing out salt water along with the words "I fu.cking can't!". You've tried, you've tried so hard, and for so long, but nothing works. Your legs are numb from trying, they are limp like a newborns, and your head is barely treading water. You wonder why none of these screaming people have waded into the water to help you. After all; it is only waist deep.

    My name contains a series of ten letters and five syllables, I have also managed to see
    seventeen birthday cakes sit in front of me while I make pointless wishes on burning candles
    that will soon fade just like the things i've wished for inside of my never ending head. I
    don't like to speak; I hate voicing my thoughts for the fear of rejection,
    miscommunication, and embarassment. I do not like the spotlight, I don't like knowing
    that all eyes are focused on me and that with every steady breath they take I am
    struggling to inhale the air in which surrounds me, practically taunting me, I stutter and
    trip over my words, I regret the things that I let slip past my lips and so often I remain
    quiet, my exterior is so very different from my interior, and most wil never even get to
    know that. I like the darknes, for I blend in with it quite well, metaphorically speaking. I
    like to be hidden and unseen, away from conflict, drama, and any other unnecessary
    bullsh/t. I adore words, and the power they have, they can make or break a person, they
    have the ability to change a perspective or bring someone down, they are beyond
    incredible when used to their full advantage. I have a deep appreciation for the color
    black, and how you can interpret this color in many ways. I like black roses, black
    clothes, black nails, and even black thoughts. I'm infatuated with something I had once
    been afraid of: thunderstorms. They are natures beloved beauty, and not scary at
    all if you take the time to memorize the way thunder roars in different beats, and how the
    lightning never quite flashes in the same form, and how pretty the rain is whether it's
    softer or harder than your pounding head. I also like hurricane, and how their
    destruction always seems to lead to something greater, I am a hurricane, without the
    positive end result, though. I am alone because I choose to be. I'll never undestand my
    motives or my decisions but for some reason I can't change them, they are written on an
    invisible plaque and no ammount of scrubbing will erase it, even if something's written in
    pencil and it eventually gets erased, that doesn't change the fact that those words were
    still there, they will always be there even if you can no longer read them. I like scary
    things and creepy encounters; abandoned asylums and haunted houses facinate me . I'd
    love to get inside the head of a mentally disabled person and learn how they think, how
    they see things, I want to understand them. I want to understand people but I can't even
    understand myself. I am a walking paradox and in some cases I'm okay with that . I like
    people that are short with their statements and people that make you work for things
    rather than just handing it to you. I like to think that I am different because originality is
    often mistaken for trying too hard and i don't want to be misplaced. I don't fit in with any
    crowd, I am my own crowd. I don't need fake friends and false compliments, I don't need
    anyone and I'm learning to accept that. I am incapable of being loved despite how many
    times you tell me otherwise, my mind is set on the way I think and I cannot change that. I
    am sad, so very sad. I am made up of my depression and that is all I am, things get
    better but they don't stay that way permanatley, happiness is only temporary, it's not a
    definate feeling. I have forever felt a strong disliking towards myself and I don't know how
    not to. I do not fear death, I welcome it. I don't look both ways when crossing the street
    and I'm not careful. I'm not afraid, I ache for a home that is nonexistent, and so I'll just
    continue to exist rather than live until I not only fade, but completley burn out.

    Sometimes you miss the memories and not the person,
    Sometimes you miss the person and not the memories,
    And sometimes you just miss who you thought the person was before they became who they are.
