gender doesn’t determine what you can and cannot enjoy, what you can and cannot look like or what you can and cannot do
the worst thing you can say to someone is ‘you’re too sensitive’ because that’s basically saying ‘you feel things more deeply and fully than i do and this inconveniences me because now i have to be more mindful of my own actions’
you’re not too sensitive, the world is just callous and stubborn. sensitivity doesn’t make you weak and callousness doesn’t make you strong.
Not to focus on the negative, but it makes me so sad when I think about the days when I have my own family and the holidays come around. It’ll never be like I thought it would when I was 10. It will never be my kids and my husband, my brothers kids and his wife, and our parents on Christmas morning. Divorce is such an inconvenience.
I’ve always wanted to have big family get togethers but my family is so spread out. No one is close and money will always be tight. I don’t know why it bothers me so much. Especially right now, being single forever haha. I don’t know. I’m sad. Family is so important to me. And physically being together as a family. It’s not very important to anyone else in my family besides my dad. And now families are trying to mix and I don’t want that. I just want my family back.
I’m overwhelmed and I feel like I don’t even have the right to say that. Maybe I don’t.
