It’s okay to be insecure about being nonbinary. About being embarrassed to use neutral pronouns, they/them or otherwise. About asking people to change their name for you. About disclosing your identity to people in general.
A lot of positivity towards nb folk has to do with being loud and proud of who you are. And that’s wonderful! There’s nothing wrong with that! But it’s not like that for everyone. Maybe you’ll get there some day, maybe you won’t.
My heart breaks for Syrians who have been in war for so long.
Children who have grown without knowing anything else. Children who didn’t get to live. People who have seen their country destroyed. Thousands and thousands of lives lost. And so many of us don’t even know half of it, we’re so uninformed. But the US bombing them is bound to make things worse, and it’s so unfair that some people are *just* beginning to worry because it might affect them. We’re so fucking privileged and most of the time, we take that for granted.
There is life after whatever they’re feeling, there is life after high school, there is life after that exam, there is life after that party or that photo or that boy. There is always going to be more.
