i dont want the d. i want the a. i want to pass this class
It’s hard for me to see myself as “good” when so many people I care so deeply about have completely distanced themselves from me.
I hate how it’s either you hide your emotions and your strong
Or how if you show all of your emotions you’re brave for being vulnerable.
Fuck, I reject all of that. If you continue to pull yourself out of bed in the morning, you’re strong. All the other things don’t show how fucking strong you are, that’s another thing entirely.
More: It’s okay to be emotional. It’s okay to cry. Everyone who thinks crying is a sign of weakness might as well be saying you’re strong for holding in your bowels.
Our culture is growing into one in which we constantly are expected hold in our crap and it’s not teaching people that it’s okay to release it. Yeah, holding it in takes strength but to thing it means we’re strong is a lie from culture. Not only that, but we’re hiding the mess that it makes. (And yes, that pun is intended.)
