- don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. it isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
- don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. you’re not the sum total of what you produce.
- don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. that’s not how it works. there are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. it’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.
Remember The Little Mermaid, the beautiful misunderstood fish girl that saved the prince from drowning and made him fall in love. It showed the power of sacrifice, and how you should go for what you want—Wrong! The Little Mermaid is about Ariel the half-fish half-thot who sold her voice for dick. You too can find the man of your dreams, if you are willing to sacrifice everything to be with him, it’s not like your “voice” is important. This ho lived under water and was still thirsty, you live in a city with countless single men, yet you still hold on to the same ain’t shit dude, different ocean, same fish. Aladdin gave us Princess Jasmine who was strong, free spirited, and courageous. Then she let this bum ass nigga win her over by perpetrating a fraud that he’s a baller who just pretends to be bumming it on the block. This idiot Jasmine is a metaphor for every woman that has accepted a man’s lies, forgave him, and is happy to forget because men have the right to manipulate women if they have a good heart. In the end, Aladdin can let that Genie go because he just hooked a bitch with Arab money. The moral of the story? Take care of a lying ass dude and give him all your family’s money because he loves you.
A generation of young girls internalized this shit! As they grow out of cartoons they are still fed fantasy by their friends, parents, and told at every turn what to do so they won’t end up lonely"
