Anonymous said: Who are you? Like whats yer story?
seventeen years ago i was born into a boring town to parents to hated each other and three really fucking weird older siblings, none of which were my mother’s. a little later my little sister was born. when i was four my grandfather killed himself and i think that part of me was burnt along with his body. after that my parents realized they loved their kids enough to leave each other. my mom moved into a town house and my dad stayed in the house i still live in. we were really, really broke growing up but both my mom and dad were good at hiding it. my mom moved around a lot and didn’t pay bills a lot. and i remember one time when i was at her house i called my dad and told him i wasn’t coming home. i think i broke his heart. i didn’t see or talk to him for three months. when i was ten my mom was arrested for drug use and was in and out of jail for three years at which time she lost parental rights. she went to prison for what was supposed to be ten years, but only had to serve two and i am incredibly grateful because i don’t know what i would do without her. in ninth grade i met a boy who i thought was the love of my life. i was with him for two years, and most of it was really good. toward the end it got really rocky and he lied a lot and shattered my heart. eventually i got a grip and broke up with him and it was devastating. sometime in there my brother got married and had a beautiful little girl named Bella and she is my ray of sunshine. i love that little girl so much. shortly after that i met another man who didn’t change a lot or make much of even a ripple but for some unknown reason i can’t seem to shake this thing i have for him. unfortunately he moved. my mom is clean now and is 110% my best friend. i have no idea what i would do without her. she still doesn’t have parental rights, and i live with my alcoholic dad and step mom, but i can get the hell out of here soon.
there’s the short version. there’s a lot of bang ups and hang ups in there that i didn’t go over. but these are the most important and influential things.
Pretend that they’re not causing grievous bodily harm as they “brush” your hair.
Always be serious when asked what you’d like for dinner, and never say something silly like rabbit soup. Because they will go get their stuffed one off the bed, put it in your best pot, and fill said pot with water. Then place it on your desk.
Greet their make believe friends and ask how their day was.
Always kiss the teddy bear goodnight. It has feelings too.
Always pretend to die when they shoot you.
If you are having a fake war with them and you shoot them and they say they can’t die because they are invincible, you don’t shoot them again, because they are invincible.
Yes, their drawing does look like a butterfly, not a bunch of jumbled up lines.
Them pounding on the piano is the best thing you have ever heard.
no but seriously it’s very important to a child’s development to not be shut down by parents and other caregivers
truuu but be careful not to always praise your child or else he or she will have the biggest ego ever
Yep. I know it’s a lot of notes to ask for, and a really short amount of time, and I probably won’t get even one but, I’m doing this because a friend told me to. I was going to kill myself tonight. I had no one to talk to, no one to vent to. They wouldn’t understand. I’m going through a lot, and it won’t seem to stop. Ever. It pains me to breathe, even. But I’m giving it one shot, knowing it won’t work, just because my friend asked me to. So no, I’m not seeking attention, I simply made a promise to a friend. If it was for me I’d be dead already. The 7th was an important date for me, and therefore that’s the day I’m choosing.
EVERYONE REBLOG THE SHIT OUT OF THIS. EVERY DAY.
Where were you all when the others who were ignored finally reached out? I could have already been dead multiple times, if not for my own weakness. Do not let this go.
Do not think that one person alone cannot be the deciding catalyst between the life or loss of another; we are an inherently social species, and the feeling of isolation can become deadly if it’s left to fester…
Don’t forget that there is a person there.
Don’t just stand back when all it may take is a few words, or even just a sign.
(( Guys this only has 2100-something notes WHERE ARE THE NOTES IT’S DECEMBER 2ND ALREADY))
