i’m lala (she/her) your local giraffe, always trying to brighten people’s day. i don’t really label myself (yet) it’s still very confusing, i will just say i really really love everyone and hope every one of you is having an incredible day!!✨
been having a rough week in general and my roommate was talking to me about it and was like “i want you to know your feelings are valid. you. are. valid” and like i appreciated the sentiment but i was trying so hard not to laugh sofiesjdifoslkshfals
It’s fine you see It’s just an alarm clock Set for a place you want to go. It’s fine you know It’s just your birthday But it seems hard to walk through that door again. It’s all good, you see It’s a job, we all have one And nothing will bite you when you open that email That is, unless, you think too hard Which you are, which isn’t helping Because it’s all FINE But you’re not believing it. Your shower is fine You could be in it. It’s not hard to run hot water over your body But you are not and that’s a choice. Dinner isn’t difficult But you’re staring at ingredients like you don’t know how they go together But they go together IN A PAN And you haven’t cleaned it yet. Staring isn’t cleaning but you’re doing that anyway. It’s all fine because you have friends When you don’t call them, they try to call you But picking up is scary because Then you’ll have to talk about something, anything, maybe yourself And it’s easier to let the phone ring out. It’s okay, there’s always a good reason And a way people can logic that you’ve stopped moving And all you do is look. Their motivational talk sounds like the things you hear in your head Right before you feel guilty for not being able to do something Because it’s all easy and okay.
It’s fine to be five minutes late Even when you started forty minutes early. It’s okay to need to catch your breath When the room feels too full. If everyone feels these things and they’re normal and not hard Then clearly you’re screwing up somehow Because the shower just isn’t a shower Not to you.
Let’s be lazy and lay around all day. It’ll be fun. Sure. Lazy, paralyzed. It’s all the same in theory. It’s all fine.
