"Your mother did not raise you with a wolf in your chest so you could howl over losing a man."
"I hate people generally, but I like people individually."
the reason why so many people prefer older men isnt because we have some sort of kink but because we know young teenage boys are a complete fucking disaster that can only be salvaged by the sands of time
"Maybe if more people would treat the mentally ill like people instead of an infection more people would seek treatment."
"What’s the worst thing I’ve stolen? Probably little pieces of other people’s lives. Where I’ve either wasted their time or hurt them in some way. That’s the worst thing you can steal, the time of other people. You just can’t get that back."
So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return."
"Cancer/mental illness/disability affects rich and poor alike."
Uh, no, it doesn’t. Rich people can afford the treatments and accommodations for those things. Poor people cannot. Get the fuck outta here with that classist shit.
Not to mention a higher proportion of disabled people are in poverty and people in manual jobs are more likely to become disabled, there is a class element to disability that cannot be ignored.
And when you suffer from any one of these, it makes it a whole lot easier to be able to take off of work, off of life, and go on vacation to a massage therapy retreat and work out your issue. Try going to work at Target while having to take the bus there every day to pay your rent and feed your kids because you’re a single parent WHILE you’re suffering from deep depression. Money changes everything. Even genetic illnesses.
