I did the thing at In N Out when they say, “Enjoy your food,” and I instinctively reply, “You too.” Ay my wtf face was on full alert immediately after that. This was a first for the drive thru though. This usually happens in theaters when I’ am buying a movie ticket. This will instinctively continue on I just know it. 

I don’t have a fear of commitment. I have a fear of abandonment. We all screw things up. I screw things up, especially with people I love. I get needy, I get moody, I get distant, I want to be close, I get confused. I don’t understand all of it, but I keep pushing because I hope this thing, this universe, there’s no way that I’m the only person out there who wants something this bad, if I want it, someone else out there must too.
The problem with gender is that it prescribes how we should be, rather than recognizing how we are.

I wrote your name on the bullet so everyone would know you were the last thing that went through my head.

it scares me that you never know what someone is thinking or feeling towards you and everything that they say could be one massive lie

In general, I think we need to move away from the premise that being a good person is a fixed immutable characteristic and shift towards seeing being good as a practice. And it is a practice that we carry out by engaging with our imperfections. We need to shift towards thinking that being a good person is like being a clean person. Being a clean person is something you maintain and work on every day.We don’t assume ‘I am a clean person therefore I don’t need to brush my teeth.’ When someone suggests to us that we have something stuck in our teeth we don’t say to them ‘What do you mean I have something stuck in my teeth—but I’m a clean person?!’

Dude nailed it. We all need to work at being good. Even if we think we are.

Too many young girls don’t know how to act when someone’s being inappropriate with them. They giggle or they try to brush it off. Don’t do that. Tell them to go fuck themselves - be a bitch. If someone’s being disrespectful to you, be disrespectful right back. Show them the same amount of respect that they show you.
