“It’s not the load that breaks you down. It’s the way you carry it.”
— C.S. Lewis
"I’m the friend who tells you,
“Text me when you get home safe”
“Are you okay? How was your day?”
“Do you want some of my food?”
“You’re short on money? Here I’ll pay”
“If you’re in a spat with your parents just come over”
“Hey I love you, is that okay?”
“You can have mine.”
“Just call if you get into trouble”
“If you get in trouble, I get in trouble. End of story”
“Who did that? Do I need to have a little talk with them?”
Yet I’m still the one who gets cut loose. I’m always the one people forget about. I dont go to parties, I don’t go to sleepovers. I’m here fucking 24/7 for anyone who needs me, if they hate me or not, and I’m still just a sideline or someone you’ll talk to occasionally. I’ve took the bullet for friends thousands of times and I never seem to get that favor returned."

extricationism: my project for slam poetry, art, and activism. the topic i chose was rape culture. the tags say things like “my boner does not mean i want to have sex with you” “consent is a basic human right” “consent is the presence of a yes, not the absence of a no” “no does not mean “convince me”” “the only thing that causes rape is rapists” etc.
"The hardest thing about depression is that it is addictive. It begins to feel uncomfortable not to be depressed. You feel guilty for feeling happy."

"You look healthy.
And by that I don’t mean you look fat.
I mean your face isn’t grey any more, the circles under your eyes aren’t so dark. Your lips aren’t cracked and dry and your hair isn’t thinning and brittle. I mean you seem more focused when I talk to you, You actually look at me and listen rather than being so unable to stay still or think about anything other than your illness that your eyes dart around the room and you nod manically the whole time I’m speaking. You seem calmer, stiller, quieter. You’re easier to have a joke with and you take things on board much more than you used to.
I mean you laugh now, you’re less serious. There’s life about you, it’s in your eyes and your smile, it’s in the way you speak and even in the way you go about your daily tasks.
You look healthy. You look happy. It really, really suits you."
- Really needed to post this right now. This is the only thing that ever helps me get even a little bit into wise mind about how I look. (via
