Religious freedom means everyone (within reason) can practice their beliefs or lack thereof. If you say something like “I am grateful to practice my religious beliefs freely in this country” on facebook but decide to insult tarot aficionados and readers for their own beliefs, you’re an asshole.
If you say “thanks to religious freedom, I can be an atheist without worry” and act shitty towards the religious, you’re an asshole.
I am realizing I have no idea how I started eating again, like there are these two years of my life where I worked so hard to start eating normally again and I have no idea what I did or how I did it I just ended up here in this place of goodness where I don’t worry about that anymore. Obviously I had people monitoring me and I was in therapy and on medication but that didn’t put the food in my mouth and I really don’t know what did and every time I look back on that time I feel less and less connected to it and less and less sad about feeling that lack of connection
Sometimes I’m like wow being an adult is hard I wish I was in college but then there are days like today when I can watch tv and go to cafes around the corner from my apartment where they serve the “agent cooper special” and walk around paris in the rain and I remember I’m really glad to be here
I’m so glad that my favorite quote has changed from “birds born in a cage think flying is an illness” to “in the world through which I travel I am endlessly creating myself” I’m also so glad my family is proud of me and identifies me as a happy and productive person
