why!! do healthy people insist on judging how a chronically ill person looks every single time they see them, it is not necessary to tell me i look terrible, pale, lost too much weight and tell me to go outside and get some sun and it is not necessary to tell me i look better than the last time you saw me it is not necessary to comment on our looks every single time you see us just because you know we are ill, it doesn’t give you the right to act like you know a thing and understand what’s up or comment on things you normally wouldn’t comment on
Please don’t tell me I’m beautiful… at least not in the same sentence as “I love you”. I know it’s supposed to instill me with confidence, but the truth is – nothing terrifies me more than the thought of somebody who’s only attracted to looks. Because looks fade; people age; and there will always be somebody who’s better looking and younger than me out there and as soon as I know that’s what your love hinges on – I know it won’t last.
So don’t tell me I’m attractive or beautiful… tell me I’m a beautiful person and that you’re attracted to my sense of humor. Don’t text me about how hot you think I am, look into my eyes and tell me of my warmth. Tell me I have a sexy mind that arouses your intellect. Tell me one thing about who I really am that you actually love… something that will last … Because I need to know that you can see the depth of my soul and are not just fascinated by the shallow reflection on the surface. Tell me something real… something that shows me not only that you see me – but that you love me for who I am…
I’m so amazed by the variety of colours and structures fluorite forms ─ pictured are rainbow fluorite, purple cubic fluorite (with a phantom), green fluorite, a pink fluorite cluster and fluorite nodules 💜
