The greatest gift you can give someone is the space to be his or herself, without the threat of you leaving.

I might not be doing what my parents hoped for me or what majority of my peers are doing, but that’s ok. I need to stop comparing myself to my peers and focus on me. It’s ok to put yourself first. It’s ok to take mental breaks when things get overwhelming. It’s ok to ask for help. It’s ok if it takes you longer than expected to reach your goal, just pls don’t give up. Be patient with yourself. Love yourself. Take care of yourself.

Life is always gonna throw you curve balls, you can’t control that. All you can do is keep swinging.

Y’all wanna say “black men ain’t shit” and ignore the black men that love us?
Hm interesting
Y’all wanna say “black women ain’t shit” and ignore how black women support you?
Hm interesting

People don’t like love, they like that flittery flirty feeling. They don’t love love - love is sacrificial, love is ferocious, it’s not emotive. Our culture doesn’t love love, it loves the idea of love. It wants the emotion without paying anything for it. It’s ridiculous.

But sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes we are sad but we don’t really know we are sad. So we say we aren’t sad. But really we are.

don’t get it twisted like i respect bugs for being the best they can be in spite of their specific assigned flesh prisons and their ecological significance but they need to stay the fuck away from me
