It’s the most maddening, beautiful, magical, horrible, painful, wonderful, joyous thing in the world, love.

- How white racism grew out of slavery and genocide
- How whites still benefit from slavery and genocide
- White anti-racism

And so on. No fear of running out of topics: there is more than one a day! I am sure my commenters can come up with tons more, probably some big ones that are not coming to mind at the moment (I did not list slavery, the abolitionist movement, the civil war, Reconstruction or Lincoln since they are, in fact, covered in history class, however poorly).
What I know now that I didn’t then is, I’m not a bad person. And I’m not hard to get along with. I’m not mean-spirited and I have a lot of empathy. I can roll with a lot. But what I can’t stand (and shouldn’t stand) is people walking all over me with no regard for their gross feet squishing my face.
I am a people-pleaser. I’ve had to be; my family is a dysfunctional mess sometimes, and it’s usually my job to be the perfect child. So I can take bullshit. I can forgive it, too.
But as I’ve grown up, I’ve become less sorry about cutting out toxic people from my life. People who make me feel small; people who take my time for granted; people who take their problems out on me. I will hold on as long as I can, because I want to be fair and forgiving, but not everything is my fault, and not every problem can be fixed, and frankly, not everyone is worth the energy.
People have hurt me, and it wasn’t necessarily my fault. I was afraid, before, of saying this because it felt like by putting blame elsewhere, I was taking away my own agency and my own fault in things. But actually, assigning blame to people who hurt me is a liberating thing. It means, yes, you did wrong by me, and I don’t have to beat on myself for it. It means, I am not perfect and I am always a work in progress, but this is not an instance where I need to be obsessively introspective; I can look elsewhere to times when I was indeed at fault, and reflect there (more productively) instead.
I have my demons. I’m still experiencing growing pains. I have anxieties and frustrations and problems. But I am a good person, and I am worthwhile, and I am not always the reason that bad things happen.
remember when narcissa malfoy saved the entire wizarding world by being like “fuck this noise i’m getting my dumbass dude and my dumbass kid the hell out”
"Depression is such a cruel punishment. There are no fevers, no rashes, no blood tests to send people scurrying in concern. Just the slow erosion of the self, as insidious as any cancer. And, like cancer, it is essentially a solitary experience. A room in hell with only your name on the door."
A room in hell with only your name on the door.
That shit gave me chills…
