you are flawed

I’m afraid. I’m afraid that you are going to end up like everyone else that has ever left me. I’m afraid that one day you aren’t going to see the quirky little things I do as endearing or cute, but rather annoying and obnoxious. I’m afraid that you won’t see the things I say and do as you do now, that you will eventually grow annoyed of me. I’m afraid that you’ll see my flaws for what they are, disgusting. I’m afraid that you’ll up and leave just like they all do. please don’t leave me
—  I’m just so goddam afraid

People will judge you regardless of what you do. Don’t look to them for validation, simply accept all that you are.

nothing is more beautiful or empowering than being yourself :))

it occurred to me tonight that…none of you know what I look like. which weirds me out a bit? I rant a lot on this blog and talk to quite a few of you and none of you have seen my face (except becca and jayne cause they’re stuck on this island with me) soooo here are two pictures of me awkwardly smiling after my cousins wedding. goodnight friends 🐢
(please do not re/bl0g)

Also, apparently I was the only one that actually enjoyed the episode.

making yourself a priority is often a very necessary exercise. it’s okay :))

You know what’s exhausting about stanning characters of color? That you can never explore their flaws. You can never appreciate them if they are selfish, angry, hurt, closed-off or cruel; you can’t explore “what would happen if they turned evil”, you can’t write Villain!AUs…

…because inevitably White Fandom™ will actually grab even the smallest sign of them not being a Literal Angel™ to argue that they are canonically evil and the Real Villain™ of the series, or take your What-If AUs and argue that said character is actually turning evil in canon.

And god forbid you go looking for Darkside!AUs, because you will only find piles and piles of garbage written by White Fandom™ just to demonize said character of color in order to prop up their white fave.
