Any recommendations for something to watch on Netflix?
Yeaaaah, may have left a patronising comment….
I fucking hate being an adult sometimes…
A good friend of mine committed suicide nearly 4 years ago now. I used to be quite close with his little sister (she’s like 17 now I think).
She’s just put on fb that some asshat has said that “suicide is selfish”, which has obviously upset her.
Now, because I’m 22 and this asshat is only 17, I can’t hand him his ass and explain to the douche how and why (in great detail) he’s a little twat.
I understand people have different opinions on matters like suicide, and I’m fully aware many people do think it’s selfish, but come on. An opinion like that is one you keep to yourself unless asked. Out of respect more than anything.
I even know he’s just doing it for the attention, to get a reaction, but it doesn’t make me wish I was 4/5 years younger so I could shoot him down in front of all his friends any less.
do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.
you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours
there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.
but you will never be
and have never been
Just seen old pictures of me from about 2 years ago and realised how much weight I have actually put on…depressed the fuck out of myself.
