“I’m going to tell you what a demon once told me: It is okay to want your own happiness. It’s okay to care about yourself the most. It’s okay to do what’s healthy for YOU. When someone hits you, it’s okay to hit back and then ask them what the hell they expected. It’s okay. You are not obligated to sit there and smile and swallow every bit of shit everyone heaps on you. You are more than furniture, you’re more than window dressing, you’re not their shiny toy. You’re human, and you have the right to say “That was shitty of you”. You have a right to say “Let me feed that back to you; tell me, how does it taste?” You have a right to protest your own mistreatment and set boundaries for respectful interactions. The rest of the world doesn’t realize you have this right, and they will act offended and appalled when you exercise it, but it is yours.”—SonneillonV (via albinwonderland)
Sorry I haven’t posted for so long. I’ve been dealing with a lot of personal issues over the past month and dealing with a very HUGE amount of stress. Because of that I decided to take a break from social networking sites for the sake of my sanity because I got tired of seeing constant talk of politics and (at least on my facebook accounts, wasn’t as much of an issue on tumblr) rampant Obama bashing. I did go vote for the President Obama today; and I’m very happy (and relieved) that he was re-elected. At least I don’t have to worry anymore about having Romney/Ryan in the White House as they both think women are incubators, that gay couples shouldn’t have the same rights as their straight counterparts, that (in Romney’s case at least) abuse animals, or think that anyone who isn’t a straight white cis rich male is somehow subhuman. That being said….I’m very glad that the election is over and that the political ads are all going away.
Sorry for basically disappearing! Thanks to all my followers who have stuck with me! : )
