Some things I'd like to say.

Dishonesty is incredibly hurtful. The inevitable lying to then cover the lack of truth makes it all the worse. Even more terrible is the knowledge that you're being lied to but being completely unsure what step to take next. Choosing self respect and putting an end to the disrespect from others is a difficult thing to do when you don't know how. You can't change people. What you CAN change though is how you choose to react. Does it still hurt? Yup. Can you make the other person stop hurting you? Not always. You can move further away from that person, but you can't make that person move away from you. Can you alter the way you receive communication and respond to the influence of others? Yes you certainly can!

Friendship is sacred. There is no greater blessing than finding someone with whom there is a mutually beneficial symbiosis. That's what friendship is really isn't it? I don't harm you, you don't harm me, and if we do, then we fucking apologise and move on to the more important task of food consumption and terrible Youtube.

Fight for what is worth fighting for. Whatever it is you believe is worth it, chase it down and stand beside it. Hold its hand. Learn about it. Speak up for it. Reach out to it. Listen to it. Learn from it. If in your heart you know it's what you want and need, then go get it. If it isn't serving you then
Let. It. Go. Don't waste time and energy on something that doesn't make your heart sing. Life is too short for that nonsense.

That above goes for people, too. You are obligated first and foremost to YOURSELF.

That's all I wanted to say tonight.

Goodnight, my little mamba sneks.

Has anyone else found the past week or so especially more stressful and difficult emotionally and stress-level wise than normal? I certainly...
