HELP I AM CRY
I sort of want a tumblr full of tiny, angry owls.
1: Equal is tough because I think that how I interpret equality doesn’t LOOK like equality from the outside. Equality to me means treating people according to the traits that matter and not the ones that don’t. There are lots of things that my gender affects, but it is less often that this is addressed and much more often that we talk about my gender in ways where it doesn’t matter. I’m really tired of having to explain to my children that Yes, I DO wear makeup, but I DON’T CARE about it, so I wear it infrequently and Thank You for calling me pretty, but no, it isn’t actually the best compliment you can give me. I think I got off track. Equality. Right. Equality is treating every single person as though they have worth, even though that takes different standards.
6: I wonder about what I’m going to do when situations happen to me. Like… What am I going to do if I don’t get a job soon? What am I going to do if I do, but it’s somewhere I can’t afford to move? I guess I might be a bit too practical, I dunno.
15: Never to their faces. I’ve been outrageously angry with my father before- we fight like teenagers- but I know where my boundaries are and insulting my parents to their faces is not on this side of the line.
24: Agree. I’ve said it for a long time that if you’ve got so much money and stuff you literally can’t remember it all- it’s just way too much and it has less meaning for you. Yes. I would rather have a Smart Board for my kids if it means you have to sell your 5th house. Frankly, I think it’s outrageous that “minimum wage” and “living wage” are DIFFERENT NUMBERS. PAY YOUR DAMN TAXES. STOP USING LOOPHOLES.
47: Once. I was stood up once. I lived.
70: What are you trying to point out, exactly? EVERYONE has the same numbers of hours in a day, but my goal isn’t to be Abraham Lincoln. It’s nothing like that.
88: I rationalize almost constantly. I need the logical, verbal reassurance, so I just keep up a running commentary.
89: Real life. Most definitely.
100: Coffee itself needs to be as black as possible, then with a scoop of sugar and thick cream.
I want to be her when i grow up.
We’re that bad, huh?
Did you do the thing, Neopets?
Tell me the truth, Neopets.
There once was a young boy with a very bad temper. The boy’s father wanted to teach him a lesson, so he gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper he must hammer a nail into their wooden fence.
On the first day of this lesson, the little boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. He was really mad!
Over the course of the next few weeks, the little boy began to control his temper, so the number of nails that were hammered into the fence dramatically decreased.
It wasn’t long before the little boy discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Then, the day finally came when the little boy didn’t lose his temper even once, and he became so proud of himself, he couldn’t wait to tell his father.
Pleased, his father suggested that he now pull out one nail for each day that he could hold his temper.
Several weeks went by and the day finally came when the young boy was able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.
Very gently, the father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.
“You have done very well, my son,” he smiled, “but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.”
The little boy listened carefully as his father continued to speak.
“When you say things in anger, they leave permanent scars just like these. And no matter how many times you say you’re sorry, the wounds will still be there.”
Correct parenting is correct!
