Just got blocked by someone I thought was a friend for saying I fear all cis people and men, this was after spending hours calmly explaining why tone policing is harmful. Was told I’m the harmful one because I said people have a right to be angry at their oppressors for the violent microaggressions they comit without realizing it. This all came about because I reblogged post saying all white people are racist. Ruby is PISSED.
“I’m fine. It’s okay. I’m used to it.” I notice some people have mastered the art of telling people that things are okay when they’re actually not. When you don’t cry or express your feelings, people often mistake that for strength and perfection, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. It takes some strength to admit that things are fucked up or that a situation is out of your hands. Hiding your emotions all the time and stifling your feelings is actually a weakness. It cripples you over time, until one day… BOOM! It really doesn’t give a warning. You’ll suddenly break down and do some serious damage, yet everyone will claim that they never saw it coming. Don’t become that person. It doesn’t matter how you do it, but LET IT OUT.
