So many people define their self esteem by being snobby or rude or mean to people, and I honestly have next to no patience for that

If you’re cruel to other people and then act like it’s okay bc you’re acting a diva or bc you’re pretty or fragile or dressed well, please dunk your head in some water and go sit in the corner until you can learn some basic human respect

Quit assuming others have it better, or you have it worse. Everyone suffers tremendously in life. It’s rude to belittle someone’s suffering, thinking yours is greater. Don’t judge someone’s suffering as better or worse. A dark life can be lived brightly, because pain gave great perspective and wisdom. An average and easy life can be its own kind of tragedy; suffering a mundane deadness. A great life can spoil under great fortune. It’s hard having nothing. It’s hard having everything. It’s hard. Suffering is very personal and cannot be measured by someone from the outside. Everyone suffers in different ways. Life is not a suffering contest; the contest is for compassion.

Please fire me. I asked to quit my job a week before I go to college, so that I can pack and spend holiday time with my family. My boss said ‘Read my lips: that’s what weekends are for.’ I now have one day to pack all of my belongings before departing for college in January.
