dog owned

i was told something today that makes a lot of sense and a lot of people on here could probably use this. basically, its that what your brain may do because you are mentally ill is not your fault, however it IS your responsibility.

its like having a dog. its your dog, you own it and you train it. that dog is your responsibility. if you take your dog over to someones house and it pees all over their rug, is that your fault? no. is it your responsibility? yes, because that is your dog and you are in charge of that dog. you can train it to not pee on peoples rugs, but it can still happen

it’s the same thing with your brain. if you hurt someone because of mental illness, something you cant help, it isn’t your fault. however, it is your responsibility, because it is still your brain and you are responsible for your brain and your actions, regardless of if they are intentional or not.

this is why mental illness can NEVER be an excuse for something like abuse, homophobia, racism, anything that people use mental illness as an excuse to take the easy way out. sure, it might not be your fault that your brain is like this, however it is still your brain and you are still held accountable to your actions. you can use methods to help your brain, to train it from causing bad behaviors, but if those still happen you are 100% responsible for those actions and need to learn how to take responsibility for those actions.

and yes, this means that people have a right to be mad at you, just like your friend has a right to be mad at you if your dog pees on their rug. you will always be held accountable for your brain’s actions whether its your fault or not and you need to learn how to grow as a person, find tricks to train your brain when these things do happen so your actions don’t continue to harm other people

Basil has learned ‘walkies’. When Molly says, “do you wanna walkies?!” he starts to whine and pace in anticipation. But to be fair, he’s quite good at walking and stays at heel. I don’t have to fuss with him much. When I stop, he stops. When I go, he goes. When he needs to see a man about a him, he lets me know. It’s a strange companionship, a man and his dog. I was anxious to own a dog, after Redbeard. And, twice as much after what had happened with my sister and the revelation that it brought upon my life. 

Molly helped ease me into it by getting me Basil for Valentine’s Day (abhorrent holiday, utterly useless). And at first, I didn’t know how to take to him. Thankfully, I did take to him and now we’re becoming a team. Do you see that, Watson? We have a new teammate. 

the signs as fake quotes my weird cousin has attributed to famous authors

aries: as oscar Wilde once famously said, ‘fuck men’

taurus: i believe it was percy shelley who wrote ‘why cry over spilled milk when instead u could cry over everything

gemini: you can lead a horse to water, but u can’t make the horse drink that fucking water if it wants vodka instead. sun tzu said that.

cancer: y’know, steinbeck once screamed ‘death to capitalism’ while setting himself on fire, and i couldn’t agree more.

leo: i was trying to think of a hemingway quote, but thankfully i just remembered that i don’t give a shit about hemingway

virgo: Flintstone vitamins are for losers. William shakespeare.

libra: did you know that that nicki minaj took the lyrics “i beez in the trap” straight from jane austen’s iconic 1813 novel pride and Prejudice?

scorpio: maya angelou actually invented the acronym NSFW, did u know that? 'Not Safe From Whites’. they’re coming

sagittarius: the most inspirational thing walt whitman ever said was ‘dance like nobody’s watching’ that man was a poet

capricorn: ‘be there or be…gay! lol jk don’t be gay’ ~ the bible, chapter 5 verse 17

aquarius: honey, as Faulkner said once, ‘eat shit mark twain’. words to live by

pisces: nietzsche once said that dante was a ‘hyena that wrote poetry on tombs’ and i’m not making that shit up because nothing is funnier than that

there is a “Meet the Breeds (100+!!!)” dog fair in NYC this weekend and idk if i should go because the tickets are a bit expensive HAHAHA hah haa .…. . BUT DOGS!!!
