behaving badly

9

Please accept my fast, even though I’ve behaved badly. Please watch over Eva and Vilde and Noora, and Chris. Please watch over Isak and Even and Elias and Yousef.

it’s so weird seeing all these posts about people who are ashamed to have been a homestuck fan when i’m just like, buddy, i’m not even ashamed about the couple months i gave a shit about twilight. i had fun.

just a reminder:

kids and teens are allowed to be angry without having that anger dismissed as a “tantrum” or “hormones”. they’re allowed to be angry with adults, including their parents and teachers, without being dismissed as “disrespectful”.

they’re allowed to be sad without being dismissed as being “moody” or “whiny”. they’re allowed to feel resentment without being dismissed as “ungrateful”. they’re allowed to be uncomfortable without being dismissed as “oversensitive”.

they’re allowed to feel restless without being dismissed as “badly behaved”. they’re allowed to feel lonely without being dismissed as “attention-seeking”. they’re allowed to be tired without being dismissed as “lazy”.

young people’s emotions are valid, despite the fact that our language has an entire vocabulary designed to make them feel otherwise.
