"Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself."

"A psychiatrist once told me early in treatment, “Stop trying to make me like you,” and what a sobering and welcome smack in the face that statement was. Yet somehow, every day of my life is still a campaign for popularity, or better yet, a crowded funeral."

pinpointeyes asked: I used your poem "my poor mother begged for a sheep, but raised a wolf" today in my speech. Mwahahaaha, you couldn't stop me.

Congrats on being a shitty person.

Idk the situation but people are freaking out in comments I see and the person posting it didnt say whether or not the poem was cited or not sooo….

It specifically says in my ~FAQ~ that none of my poems are allowed to be used for verbal purposes soooo yeah…

Why the heck would you even defend them on any grounds whatsoever after a comment like “mwahaha you couldn’t stop me”

like that’s inherently shitty and shouldn’t be supported in any way???

there’s something really nice about finally getting your head out of your ass and making your profile picture one where you’re genuinely happy + healthy (what?? not thinking of it as a bad word??) + having people acknowledge that more than sickness/disorder idk
