It is okay to want your own happiness. It’s okay to care about yourself the most. 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 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.

So I’m in a super nostalgic mode and I’ve been talking to people I cut out of my life for various reasons, and one of the things that they say about me (positively, mind you) is that I inspired them. And there is proof too. Like, one went back to school bc “you made me realize that I was capable of more than I thought that I was” and another is moving away from his home town bc “you made me realize that there was more out there” and etc. and honestly, that’s really cool?

How do you just tell someone that you aren’t happy/compatible with them? Like he’s not a bad person at all! We just don’t communicate well and I don’t like reptiles as pets and he’s obsessed with them.

I think that my boyfriend is mad at me bc I’ve been pulling away bc I told him that I needed communication (less whining and reptile talk) and affection and he didn’t give it to me so I have to retreat for self preservation, you know.

Taurus - you are a piping hot cup of coffee. you burn my tongue and i am sensitive to caffeine. you make me panic.
