1. You are stronger than you realise.
  2. You are crueller than you realise.
  3. The smallest words will break your heart.
  4. You will change. You’re not the same person you were three years ago. You’re not even the same person you were three minutes ago and that’s okay. Especially if you don’t like the person you were three minutes ago.
  5. People come and go. Some are cigarette breaks, others are forest fires.
  6. You won’t like your name until you hear someone say it in their sleep.
  7. You’ll forget your email password but ten years from now you’ll still remember the number of steps up to his flat.
  8. You don’t have to open the curtains if you don’t want to.
  9. Never stop yourself texting someone. If you love them at 4 a.m., tell them. If you still love them at 9.30 a.m., tell them again.
  10. Make sure you have a safe place. Whether it’s the kitchen floor or the Travel section of a bookshop, just make sure you have a safe place.
  11. You will be scared of all kinds of things, of spiders and clowns and eating alone, but your biggest fear will be that people will see you the way you see yourself.
  12. Sometimes, looking at someone will be like looking into the sun. Sometimes someone will look at you like you are the sun. Wait for it.
  13. You will learn how to sleep alone, how to avoid the cold corners but still fill a bed.
  14. Always be friends with the broken people. They know how to survive.
  15. You can love someone and hate them, all at once. You can miss them so much you ache but still ignore your phone when they call.
  16. You are good at something, whether it’s making someone laugh or remembering their birthday. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that these things don’t matter.
  17. You will always be hungry for love. Always. Even when someone is asleep next to you you’ll envy the pillow touching their cheek and the sheet hiding their skin.
  18. Loneliness is nothing to do with how many people are around you but how many of them understand you.
  19. People say I love you all the time. Even when they say, ‘Why didn’t you call me back?’ or ‘He’s an asshole.’ Make sure you’re listening.
  20. You will be okay.
  21. You will be okay.

no critical thinking whatsoever went into making this post and I’m secondhand embarrassed

like I’m just floored people are reblogging this post like it doesn’t take more than common sense to understand that this post is a classic example of the age old tactic of the oppressor exaggerating the oppressed’s responses to said oppression and taking them to an extreme to sandbag their emotions and invalidate their feelings and credibility and you’re all feeding into the bullshit because you can’t think for yourselves and you wonder why people are increasingly irritated that people don’t care about their feelings or why straight cis people say “you can’t fight hate with hate” all the while completely turning a blind eye to the fact that this is EXACTLY how they want you to feel, like you’re overreacting and taking things too far so you second guess yourself, remain quiet meek little cowards who are complicit in your own oppression so you no longer have the strength or desire to fight back

^^^^^^^^^^^ So accurate. Yes. I actually cringed when I saw the post but then I read the caption and THANK GOODNESS SOME PEOPLE ACTUALLY GET IT.
