It doesn’t really matter how someone comes across on stupid mediums such as tumblr. They may constantly make jokes, turn serious topics into jokes because they’re uncomfortable or because they just want people to think that they are a funny, nice person. But you don’t really know the person sitting behind that computer screen. Maybe the people they’re close to don’t even know them that well.
Here’s some things you probably never guessed about me. I used to be both emotionally, mentally and sometimes physically abused by my own mother. I used to deal with this by resorting to self harm. I have attempted suicide on one occasion.
If you act strong and confident, people will believe that you are those things.
This isn’t always a good thing, it means that people can deeply hurt or upset you without meaning it that way.
Fragility is bred from vulnerability. Self hatred is bred from years of being told that you are ignorant, selfish, nasty, evil.
So that’s the painful truth.
