I am only a teenager and I have already felt my mind turn bitter and cynical. I am only a teenager and I have also realized the flaws in that way of life and know that there is a phase beyond. I am only a teenager and I have tried stopping feeling anything to make the pain go away. I am only a teenager and I now understand that the good is worth the bad, and that numbness is the only feasible hell on earth. I am only a teenager and I have been a prejudiced person. I am only a teenager and I know that what I thought, said, and did in the past is wrong. I am only a teenager and I used to blurt out any opinion that I had without caring if it was educated or not. I am only a teenager and I now understand that many of my opinions are unfair, a result of my own bias, and should not be voiced until I actually know what I’m talking about. I am only a teenager and I see people destroying themselves every day. I am only a teenager and I know how to and have to talk to people about trauma they’ve endured without being overbearing. I am only a teenager and I regularly witness the horrors that are the lives of people I love. I am only a teenager and I have matured far beyond my years. I am only a teenager, and I am much much older than most adults.
So do not EVER tell me teenagers have no life experience
remember when rukia told ichigo countless times that her life was not worth saving, but he kept trying to prove to her that she was worth all the battles, the blood, the injuries he had to endure.
even when she would beg him to save himself and to run away, he would refuse and come back to her.
he wanted to let the entire soul society know the sole purpose to why he was there. after every battle, even when his bones are crushed, with blood spilling from every pore, he would stand and fight, because his purpose was to save rukia.
“i’m going to save rukia!”
“i have to save rukia!”
time and time again, he shouted those words to everyone in soul society, not allowing even the most difficult battles to get in his way.
and all this was to save a girl, he only knew for a couple of months, but it seems as if they have known each other for eternity.
“Don’t fall in love with him,” her brain murmured.
“I want to,” said her heart, longingly.
“He’ll ruin you.”
There was a hesitant pause and then a hushed whisper. “I don’t care.”
Her brain gave a resigned sigh, for it knew that even the smartest of souls could not deny love.
It was the one thing logic could not triumph.
I don’t quibble here. You can’t hit a tiny, soft, defenseless human and be good. You can’t crush the vulnerable trusting heart of a baby and be good. Those actions are so contrary to even the loosest definition of goodness that an adult can’t do those things and be considered good in any way. No so-called good that they do in other areas comes even close to making up for the wanton criminality that is child abuse.
You will see people and groups, even so-called authorities on the subject saying “abusive parents aren’t bad people, they just this and they just that.” NO.
Sure, there are factors that contribute to causing a person to abuse, but that does not excuse one iota of it or mean that a person who does bad things isn’t bad. An abusive parent does the ultimate bad thing…they permanently damage those who cannot defend themselves. It is the ultimate in cowardice and depravity.
Abusive parents are bad people. The worst of the worst. No excuses. No ifs, ands or buts.
But let’s face it if it was just Netflix klance would be 110% canon but dreamworks is in on this keeping it “pure” for the “young, impressionable children” so for now all we’re going to get is subtle hints at it and tumblr headcanons.
