Anyone who knows me, knows I am very bad at sticking to ANYTHING besides friends and relationships really.
Last night I didn’t sleep and my good schedule and everything that went with it got utterly fucked. I woke up extremely upset with myself and crying and everything that has been stressing me out flooded in and I was fucking sad.
But this is one of the first times in my life that after a couple hours of that I realized this does not mean everything is ruined. It means just get back to it. And I am not a failure for one fuck up. And I do not have to dig a hole.
This is a huge problem in my life and always has been, but realizing this, I see I’m making real progress.
I am not a bad failure of a person for fucking up one day.
I am a human with problems. But this does not have to mean I’m doomed to never grow.
Now I feel like I am about to cry happy tears over that fact. And that is okay too. :)
Just because your argument is regarding sexism/racism/ableism/privilege, doesn’t mean it’s always accurate.
Just because an argument is regarding something controversial/important/radical does not always mean it is correct information.
Some issues are complicated. Most issues are complex. I see a lot of articles on tumblr passing around information with captions about it PROVING oppression and a lot of times they are right!
But sometimes, the information is biased or heavily influenced on opinion and not completely true or fully thought out.
Questioning our society is a VERY GOOD THING but you should also question everything else and look into it. Otherwise it is counterproductive to the real issues and ends up making fixing them much harder.
Sexism/racism/ableism/privilege is all very real but I fear that tumblr activists and social justice people are ruining credibility of serious issues by pushing around a lot of bullshit as well.
Don’t just reblog, research! Inform yourself and combat your oppressors with knowledge! Be ruthless! Be factual! Be unbeatable! ❤️

Dad asked about job in retail I’m applying for. Little brother let it slip that it’s for Hustler Hollywood…
Tried to have a discussion about sex positivity and professionalism and how they can go hand and hand and that it’s NOT WEIRD. Wasn’t a discussion, was just looked at. But at least I was able to talk and voice all of my opinions.
If I had a “career goal” it would be something where I could help teenagers with mental illness and sex positivity. I don’t know how to do that yet, but that is the goal.
