forever dreaming of NYC.
I have gained such a thirst for knowledge since finishing school, all I want to do is sleep, eat, and read about politics and america and feminism. I’m so excited for the first time in my life about my future, I have this desperate urge to change things and fight for all those oppressed and I’m so scared that it’ll all go wrong but it’s just so exhilarating that I think it’s the best feeling in the world :)
Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.
And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.

“like i know political lesbians are a real thing, but do lesbians actually exist?”

genuinely probably going to end up engaging in militant feminism for the rest of my life not because I agree with militancy but because I’m mad at the patriarchy s o m u c h
