One of the many unexpected consequences of fame is that you become a magnet for indiscriminate dreams, hopes, madness and delusions. Its corollary is that you are always disappointing people. Once you become famous, you are always shattering dreams you never encouraged, withdrawing help you never volunteered, and breaking promises you never made.
It’s brutal. Maybe it’s just me. It turns me into something resembling Satan himself and I absolutely hate it. All of my emotions are running around in my head like little chickens with their heads cut off while I’m a weeping mess.
If you’re anything like me, let me remind you of a few things tonight.
You are not your emotions
Those emotions do not equal truth
It’s perfectly fine to cry. Even over stupid things. Even over nothing at all. It’s perfectly alright.
You are not ugly
You are not crazy
This is not a forever feeling
If the same jeans you wore yesterday aren’t nearly as comfortable today, you go ahead and put some stretchy pants on girl.
Give yourself heaps and heaps and heaps and heaps of grace
Y’all, it’s tough. I’m reminding myself of these tonight as I cry over ice cream cake that wasn’t the flavor I wanted. I’m giving myself grace and you already know I’ve got those stretchy pants on. We’ll make it, girls.
side note and not sure whether im looking too much into it, but it seems like SkyClan [disregarding prefixes] continued to have the newer/stranger names like -willow, -creek, -brook, -moon, -fire, while for the most part, the main series has gone back to more ‘traditional’ ones like -heart, -pelt, and -tail, to use the main characters as examples at least. idk if it seems so because the authors rotate but it helps make SkyClan appear more estranged/unorthodox which i thought was neat!
ok idk if this hasn’t been clear enough but the discourse is over. it’s been like 12 hours? i’m done answering asks about it. i’ve had to go through this whole ordeal about once every two months (seriously, someone always asks and then whatever i say, whether blunt or polite, inevitably brings discourse because you can’t express any opinions on this site without someone getting offended and misconstruing it) and my stance is unchanging so if it bothers you, feel free to unfollow. i will delete any further asks that i get about this topic. because this is a mythology blog. not a middle grade book blog.
i think you're really sweet but you're totally wrong about the stalkers being old team they've loterally made personal deals with harry and kendall like not only were 24/7paps working with hendall (so obviously are tied to jeff too) they're simply the NY area go to paps and the guy that's in charge of 24/7 paps is a liamie so that's why... like yeah as i said i dont want this to come off the wrong way but you can easily look all of this up
But if they were stalkers to 1D and are still stalking Harry/Louis separately…. They’re old stalkers that keep doing their jobs?? lol the guys that met him also have pics with Louis. Did they made a deal with Rusty too?
okay but consider lucy lane coming back to finding out the danvers being Gay Disasters™
“actually im bisexual lucy” “kara thats not really the problem here”
“cant believe you broke up with james for a luthor kara the scandal” “wait til i tell clark” “dont you dare!”
lucy “i leave for a little bit and suddenly you two let pretty girls ruin your bravdo” lane giving dating advice
unasked for dating advice
not that she expected either of them to know how to ask for Help With Girls
meddling!!! the meddling!!! lucy lane who always has a plan and clearly knows what shes gotta help them
“what are you doing on my crime scene lane” “cant i just miss the deo danvers”
lucy lane in all her military get up even though its not even relevant nor needed
but ofc what is very much needed is the hand on the small of alex’s back with the “lex, whos this on our crime scene?”
maggie sawyer flashing her very not so fancy and clearly needed ncpd “sawyer, detective. i detect. who are you” making eyes with lucy
maggie who cant keep her eyes off lucys hands who seem to linger too long against alex the entire time and who ends their conversation with “were still on for dinner tonight right” not making it seem as if her statement let anyone know that dinner included kara and james and winn too bc why would she
lucy lane who does it all and pulls some strings and i gets lois to get new and upcoming reporter kara danvers into a high class event with lucy by her side
an event who just so carefully is hosted by our very favorite l corp head lena luthor
lucy who cant just help but find a very good reason to bump directly into lena luthor causing lena’s wine to spill all over kara
and lena who feels terrible and just has to make it up kara by giving her a sweater and taking her home that very second she cant have her being uncomfortable
lucy lane who clearly thinks this plan is going very well into motion cleaRLY SHES A GENIUS
(1) i just cried reading your last post... im 21 years old and this is the first time i've ever heard someone say, in so many words, exactly what i've been feeling for years but didnt know how to describe, didnt even realize was an option. ive been struggling with the feeling that, oh im not comfortable putting an explicit sticker on my sexuality, i must be somehow repressing myself. its the furthest from the truth tbh and i didnt realize that until just now.. “sexuality”, for me,
is this giant murky construct and not a part of my identity at its very core, because who cares who i’m attracted to its not fucking relevant and the truth is i dont even know!! i dont know where the edges of that category lie… anyway this ask is rambly and probably completely incoherent but i just wanted to say thank you, so much. you always have such deep and logical insights and i wish the world was full of more people like you it’d be a much better place. much love 💗💕❤️️
this message made me cry so much. i know exactly how you feel love and i think so many people feel the same things. the truth is that our experiences with attraction don’t always really easily lend themselves to being simplified and reduced and categorized in the way that has become so normalized in society. labels are daunting and many times force you to adapt yourself and your behavior and the things that you feel into a pre-determined box.
“i don’t know where the edges of that category lie.” this. i mean is there really a better way of phrasing this? wow. that feeling can be paralyzing and you’re so not alone in struggling with it. i’ve had to do my own years and years of thinking and reading and writing to arrive at the comfort i feel right now in just existing the way that i do and letting my feelings guide my actions rather than adapting my actions to a simplified understanding of myself. i can’t even explain how much it means to me that i could’ve helped you along the way to finding that same comfort. i’m sending you so much love and light as you continue to grow and know and love the person that you are xx thank you so much for taking the time to message me
(read my thoughts on labels and coming out here if u r interested. probs one of my fav things i’ve written on this blog)
