he did not mean it, you say
and I wonder
how his merciless executions
could be more forgivable
than my exposed confession.

And why my tears
burn more
than the marks he left.

And in the emptiness
he left behind,
it is not his words that echo
but yours.

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.

I fight like a girl, assholes.

You can tell me “not all men.”
every woman knows that.

But when the weight of a single man
crushes her into the mattress
and extinguishes the light from her eyes,
there is no statistic
or trend
or clever saying
that can stop her from feeling the burn of his touch
in every man’s gaze.

So maybe, to you, it’s one man.
But for her, it is all.

It’s so difficult to describe depression to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of feeling— that really hollowed-out feeling.

im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh

I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.



‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space.

Not sure if I’ve reblogged this before but it always bears repeating.
