Y’know people say shit about social media along the lines of ‘OMG no one cares what anyone had for breakfast’ and like.
I do? I care. I’m pretty sure a lot of people care. I want to hear that the people I care about are having delicious breakfasts or saw something odd at work or flirted with a cute barista. Or just any little thoughts they have that they feel are worth sharing.
I’ve always kind of assumed that’s how you’re supposed to feel about your friends.
It’s terrifyingly overwhelming to think that everything a woman does has some kind of big hermeneutic repercussion. Seriously, though — some ladies don’t wear makeup because they literally don’t think about it ever! Some just don’t like it! To posit that there must be some kind of big cultural reason for women to reject makeup-wearing is to imply that everyone sees makeup as a requirement of womanhood; to say that it’s lazy intimates that it’s a Female Duty. Not all women would agree with that.

…that things only matter as much as we decide they do. That our lives are genuinely the result of however we perceive them.
When it comes to finding our way out of pain and suffering, the first, most honest step is realizing that our lives do not change for the better, we do. Things don’t get easier, we become better equipped to deal with them. Experiences become less difficult once we stop fearing them, putting meaning to them and energy toward them. Challenges don’t stop cropping up, but we stop seeing them as things to get over and through, but rather, we begin to view them simply as re-directs, or matter-of-fact happenstance.
Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.
