Our ability to judge is not for us to raise our chins and look down on others as we ignore our own faults.

you’re scared because you’re standing on the edge of a cliff looking over into the abyss and your own feet have carried you there

you’re scared because the person who might take your life shares your bed and makes you coffee in the morning and looks at you in the mirror and doesn’t like what they see

you’re scared because you’re not fun or easy to be around so no one stays the night and no one holds your hand. by sunset, you’re left all alone with that monster, the one that wants to end it all so bad that it doesn’t even care that it’s taking you along with it

you’re scared because it’s you. that would-be killer, that monster, that serpent in the garden. it’s you and, try as you might, you’re inescapable.

—  what are you so afraid of anyway?
