If anybody doesn’t know what cancel culture is, let me explain it to you. Technically, it is just this thing were people ‘cancel’ (or make them unfamous) people because of something bad they said in their lifetime. And you might be saying “well I mean that doesn’t sound too bad” but let me tell you a bit more. The types of things they use as evidence to cancel said person would literally be from when they were literally kids. So if, somehow, a video got out of them pronouncing the word “gay” wrong when they were first learning to talk, they would take that and be like “cancel this hoe, she doesn’t respect the LGBTQIA+ community” and then their whole career goes down the drain. Basically the people who support cancel culture are the so called “snow flake” generation. And that I agree with. The only cancelling I will agree with is cancelling cancel culture.
What is so aggravating about it is that the person could have completely changed from what they had been like 10 years ago and they would still be cancelled. I could be cancelled for this post because of the fact I think cancelling people for what they said years back is bad, but like people change bitch. Unless they said it the other day and don’t actually regret it, get over it because we all make mistakes. The things I have seen people have to apologize for are actually ridiculous. There was this one hilarious video I had watched, I forget what it was about, but it was so funny. It was by Spencerwuah I think, and it was the tiniest thing about literally nothing and people in the comments were like “oh my god I can’t believe you just said that” “address it” “oh my god some people are just so awful” and there are points where you actually think it’s a joke but it isn’t and your like who the fuck hurt you to be so sensitive.
People’s whole career’s get ruined for it too. Like when we are kids our parent’s tell us things and we believe them because we don’t know what else to think, like we haven’t made our own opinions yet. And then later on in life people learn that maybe their opinion isn’t right and so they change who they used to be, but people don’t like to see that. No matter how much they apologize, their career that they once loved has just disappeared. Now don’t get me wrong, there are some things that aren’t ok such as recent discoveries about James Charles and Shane Dawson being actual pedophiles, but like that is a literal crime and absolutely disgusting and it is recent with actual evidence that they did it. But like for other times, people really do just twist words. And they also just don’t give them a chance to defend themselves or correct themselves. Kind of like if one time they misgender someone and then they are like “Oh sorry, what are your pronouns?”, all the cancel culture bitches will be like “don’t try to make yourself look like the victim you are so close minded” when in reality they just made a mistake.
So just to finish I suppose, cancel culture needs to be cancelled because people change and some of the evidence you use to prove your point is ridiculous. But don’t get me wrong, if there are pedophilia charges or rape charges, those people don’t deserve to have freedom, but if it is something from 10 million years ago, they have probably changed so get your dramatic, pasty Karen ass out of here because we don’t wanna hear it. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself (unless you are a pedophile or rapist) PERIODT
Hey guys, so this post is gonna be a wee bit shorter because I got acrylic nails on the other day and it is so fucking hard to type with them on so I will have to get used to it. I mean the fact I make so many mistakes with these really stresses me … Continue reading I’m Disappointed In Myself…
You guys have to agree with me when I say that a lot of things we do nowadays is heavily judged. Like there are a lot of things that people aren’t willing to admit they do because people will laugh at them and call them a basic bitch or a pick me type of person. … Continue reading I Hate To Be That Bitch But…
We love a good self-deprecating post. It is kinda fun though because it is easy and I can say anything I want about myself and I won’t offend anyone, unless you are literally the exact same as me.

I was thinking about this today and it really got me worried. I have never seen an embarrassing photo of a baby in a long time. I don’t mean in old photos, but I mean that on Instagram, the babies are always in Nike or Gucci with their hair immaculate and they never are caught in a bad moment. So why is this bad you may ask? Well, let me tell you. How the hell are these kids going to be humbled when they grow up and don’t have any embarrassing photos to look back on? Answer me that because all of their generation are gonna walk around feeling like they are absolutely perfect and, while we love self confidence, you don’t want to be a bitch about it. My generation are humbled by the fact that there are hundreds of our photos scattered around our house that could completely ruin our life. Like there are a few where, if they got into the world, I may never recover from. But they don’t have that. They voluntarily release it into the world with the caption “I woke up like this” while when I was there age I woke up with the 2 different Dora the explora pj’s and a bush of hair. And that would be a good day.
To be fair though it kind of makes us more iconic. I mean I suppose it is very embarrassing when your mum or dad whips it out one day out of the blue and shows it to every breathing thing in the street, but it’s a bit of fun. Because you know everyone else has embarrassing photos so it is fine and is quite a fun time. Like their friend group is going to be so dry because they won’t have any embarrassing or funny stories to completely die about. The most they will have is the time their mum didn’t match their Gucci handbag to their Gucci belt. It isn’t ok to be honest. They will be able to sleep at night. They won’t get that flashback every night of that embarrassing point in their life 10 years ago. The audacity.
I still get haunted by this one photo I have that is literally of 2 year old me butt naked by the side of the pool just chilling and obviously, instead of being parents and getting me changed or out of the view of others, they decided to take a bloody photo and print it out for everyone to be scared by. But again, it’s a big lol moment and I am not ashamed. At least I have a personality. At least I have the reassurance that, despite the shittness of my life, I look better than I used to. I know that I have at least evolved from that moment if nothing else. So what I looked like a crack head baby?! Who wasn’t? I think that when I have kids I will make sure they are allowed to just be kids and roam around so that I can take as many embarrassing photos as I can with great camera quality and then in the future they will be so pissed but I can look at them straight in the eyes and say with all honesty “It’s for your own good, kid”. Maybe they will hate me but at least my kid won’t into a cheeky bitch or a bully because they think they are better than anyone else.
Honestly, what will happen if they only have good baby photos? Surely that will have some affect. I mean, imagine peaking when you are a literal foetus and when you are older you know that you can never get much better than that because now instead of expensive designer clothes, you are stuck with Primark tops and sketchers. Too be fair, primark is top notch and I am sorry if I just offended it there. I will forever worship primark. But yeah, to all the parents out there with the generation I am talking about, please, for the sake of humanity and your children’s future, dress them up like unicorn barf and let them get all muddy and be like actual kids. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT

But also like a relationship, they get old and you realise … Continue reading To All The TikTokers That Are Fighting Each Other…
Hi guys. This post is quite late but I am sure none of you really care about that. The truth is though, this week has been tough and I don’t want to hide that from you all because despite the fact I usually upload positive content and jokes etc. my life is not perfect. Not one single bit. I just wanted to be honest with you guys because it is ok to have a hard time with things and you aren’t weird for feeling that way. I am not quite sure what to write in the rest of this and I am going to keep it short because, well, long story short, I am very exhausted in more ways than one.
I guess I just wanted to remind you all that social media is the fakest thing on this earth. More fake than that ‘pick me’ girl in the back of your class. Like the pictures you see of men with rock hard abs or girls with the ‘perfect body’ are all utter bullshit. They are put into the perfect position where the lighting is great and the makeup is on point, and then for the imperfections that are inevitable, they are photoshopped. I know you all know this anyway, but it can be so bloody easy to remember. I could look through one person’s Instagram and see how they have the perfect life with a bunch of friends, a massive house, a massive yacht, going all over the world, and at that moment it is as if everything I have ever been told doesn’t count them in it. Every other photo on Instagram is fake, except this one right here. But how? When you say it out loud it makes no fucking sense but when you look at a post, it seems like the truth. And then you scroll on and the same thing happens, and again and again and again. But what we need to ask ourselves is “have we ever seen a picture of someone in their bedroom crying, or someone feeling lonely and lost and depressed?”. That answer is most likely no. And why is that? Well, because that doesn’t get views. It may at one point but it could ruin their whole presence on social media for the rest of their life. If you saw a video of someone complaining about how miserable they were while on a sunny beach in Greece, would you subscribe to them and adore them? Or would you scoff at them and call them entitled. It’s ok if you do scoff at them. It is completely human nature because from the outside they look like pricks. And that is my point. They are fake because they have to, and despite the fact we support those who are open and honest, their career gets shot down when they do.
So don’t get the impression that I am trying to put the blame onto society for being hypocritical or something like that, but I just wanted to remind you that people don’t like to put the sad moments of their life where everyone can see them and they only put the moments online that look like they are having the best day in the world. Even if they are happy in that moment, the next day they could be unable to get out of bed, and so they won’t post anything, and you won’t see that. So no matter how someone looks in terms of their body or their emotion, that isn’t the whole picture. We aren’t shown the whole picture and we may never know, but we need to believe that there is one and that, just like normal human beings, they aren’t perfect and neither is their life so we can’t compare ourselves to that one tiny moment of their lives. You are brilliant, you are much more than anyone knows, nobody should ever underestimate your strength, and you need to understand that everyone is blessed to have you in their life. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
I feel like a lot of people will understand me when I say that there are things that people can literally just talk about and that makes you feel exhausted or just unmotivated to do that thing despite the fact you aren’t even going to do it but the thought of it is so horrible … Continue reading Could I Be Bothered? | Part 4

Hey guys, so I haven’t really posted on here in a wee bit but like life happens so deal with it. Anyways, I guess I just wanted to just talk about how today I am kind of transitioning back into a normal, pre-covid, life. And what is it that I am doing you might ask? … Continue reading Going Back To “Normal”
In the wise words of Ariana Grande, “whoever said money can’t solve your problems must not have had enough money to solve ’em” and I live by that honestly. It is true though. Like a lot of my problems are caused by money but can also be fixed by them soooo. But every time I hear that phrase, I just think of the mugs that we all got as a kid and it would say “money can’t buy happiness but it can buy you cupcakes” and we would literally eat it up. We thought we were so fucking relatable when we had bloody chocolate milk in that mug or something like that. That’s what I hate though whenever I tell people I want to get rich and live the life I want and they are like “but money isn’t everything. It can’t solve your problems” and I just look at them like “I don’t give a flying fuck if it doesn’t solve my problems. It would be impossible to solve that many. Even my therapist can’t do it bitch, but I would rather be depressed in Greece under the sun with a lovely view, than stuck in Northern Ireland with the view of bloody chavs roaming around the streets. You get me? I mean which one do you prefer? Be honest.
And I think that having a lot of money wouldn’t solve all my problems, but it could solve someone else’s. I want to do charity work in Africa or something or like give a homeless person a house, but if I don’t have the money, what the fuck am I going to do? Walk up to a homeless person and say “you see that house there. That is yours… is what I would say if I have the money but I don’t” *walks away* I mean that doesn’t sound fair to me. And I don’t see why people get so pressed whenever you talk about wanting lots of money. Like I’m just talking to my family or something and I’m like “yeah I want to get rich and travel the world” and they look at me like I just turned into fucking Donald Trump and as though I’m a disappointment for wanting to be successful. Mum and Dad just be like “I thought we brought you up well! I can’t believe you’ve just done this!” *me laughing because I am now thinking of that one vine*
Yeah, I hope other people got that reference because that would be quite embarrassing if you didn’t. But back on topic. Why is it that people think money is such a bad thing. When people win the lottery, others are like “awk you don’t even need all that money, why did they even take the money oh my god” and I don’t know if they are just jealous or something but like if someone went up to you and was like “well done you won the lottery of £20 million” and you were like “no it’s ok I don’t really want it. Thank you” and they are like “but you literally bought a fucking ticket for it” and then your like “money doesn’t solve your problems, so no thank you” and then the guy says “£20 million fucking will you dumb fuck”. Like honestly, you entered it for a reason. So many people do. Do you want to not win it? Do you just like to complain that you never get it, when in reality you would just throw it away if you won. Like yes it is a lot of money but it doesn’t mean they are just gonna wipe their ass with it. They probably will donate some or do something nice with it. It isn’t their fault for entering a lottery like normal. They didn’t harry potter the fuck out of the numbers so they won. It is all by chance. So like why are people judging them the fuck! Make it make sense please because right now I would be loving a couple million in the bank.
I could list about 100 problems that money could solve for me. That isn’t even a joke. I wouldn’t have to go to school or work ever again, I could travel and see things I never would have been able to see, I could help the less fortunate, I would have more of a voice, I could actively do things to improve the planet, I could do things like skydiving that I have never done before, I could pay for my mum and dad to never go to work again, I could support so many of the people I love. But then again that would make me selfish, no? I think it would be pretty bloody great to get a load of money you know. So to whatever numskull first said “money can’t solve your problems”, I dare you to win the lottery and find out what it solves, because hopefully it could fix your fucking brain for thinking money won’t do anything. But here’s what I will do. I will try my hardest to become rich and gather a lot of money, and then I will be the judge that will end the question of whether or not it solves my problems and at the moment, my guess is that it will, so just wait a few years and I’ll get back to you *sips wine from “money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you cupcakes”mug*
Thank you so much for reading this post. It was a tad random, but lets be honest, it was necessary. Who else thinks that money could solve their problems? I know that some of mine could. Not all of them like but money can also pay for a therapist which could help. I don’t know, but hopefully we will find out. Please like, comment and subscribe if you enjoyed this content and I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT

Me, personally, I love languages.

For the past couple of weeks I have been making more comforting weekly reminders, but it’s about time we speed this shit up. Its time for some hype and I am here for it. This is gonna be cringed as fuck but I don’t give a crap because it is what it is and nobody even cares!
You see, we live our whole life wondering “what will they think about me” and “that will be embarrassing” as if we should give a fuck. You are the baddest bitch and nobody can top it. If they are judging you, they just are pointing out the things they wish they had. I’m not about to go and preach “life is short” because I think it is a fucking long time to be honest, but no matter how long you live, there is no time for crap and you should be using that time to live your best life. I mean think of it. What good comes out of thinking about what others think? Literally nothing. You get fake friends. You have low self-esteem and you most likely live in fear id being caught. But when you live like you want, you may have less friends, but those that you have are the best, and you don’t have to be fake, you are more comfortable being yourself.
It is always when after you change yourself that you realise it was a mistake, so let me save you the time. If you are thinking about everyone else but yourself when making a decision, don’t fucking do it. Block out all the noise telling you that it matters what they think because chances are they don’t give a fuck and chances are they aren’t going to benefit you at all. Whether you like it or not, you are the only thing that matters, and for some reason we can never accept that, but if anyone dares tell you otherwise just remember what a bad bitch you are. You don’t need the validation of any fucking person because you are all you need and others are just a bonus. You need to live your best life, and you need to block out any person that tries to take that away from you because they have no right to take your shine. So whenever you go out to a party, or even just to the supermarket, you go in like the confident bitch you are because people should be honored to even say hello to you. You are one of the greatest people in that room and can’t nobody tell you otherwise.
So don’t you dare listen to anyone else. Listen to this and only this because everyone else is telling lies, but this is the truth and I know it. You need to know it too. Take a look what you can do and have done. You have gone through a pandemic, through life, your live on the ‘Goldilocks’ planet, breathing, sleeping, digesting, putting smiles on peoples faces, changing the world with every step you make. Nobody like you has ever or will ever be on this planet, so you gotta show them all that you got. Go down in history because you are so amazing and unique and inspiring. I love you and so do so many other people. Make sure nobody ever underestimates you. You are worth so much more than their time and their thoughts and all the things that they judge you for. Live the life you want and shout “eat my dust bitches”. Become friends with those on your level, the ones who match your speed. And if they start to slow done, you keep going. You keep doing what you need to do because that is what you want to do and nobody should take that goal away from you. PERIODT
This post sounds like it is going to be really sentimental and I mean, I suppose it it, but just let me tell you what the sentence says. So, one day I was walking around town with my friends and we went into this shop just for the lols and then when I saw this I thought that I just needed it. It was actually on a card but I thought that it would be a nice decoration for my room. Now, I look at it every day and just think that I have never seen anything more powerful in my life
A wise woman one said “fuck this shit” and she lived happily ever after
I mean periodt. I now live my life like that woman because it is s true. Maybe it has gone a bit too far though because I use this whenever I have a slight inconvenience in my life. I can’t finish one of the Math questions? Fuck this shit. I am not instantly perfect at something? Fuck this shit. You know what I mean. But I guess it is a good thing to live off because you really can’t be taking life too seriously. I mean think about it. We are living on a rock flying around a ball of gas in a massive empty space that is constantly growing into some unknown thing which has been around for billions of years, yet we are made to sit in school for the first 20+ years of our life to learn about shit that doesn’t mean anything to us and we also have the audacity to care about what others think. Basically everything we know is a theory too. The structure of the earth is a theory, evolution is a theory, the atomic structure is a theory. Pretty much everything is a theory that we choose to believe as the truth. We have made giant pieces of metal fly in the sky with people in it and we have made massive skyscrapers. The world is so fucked up yet so amazing. There are so many things we know and yet we know nothing at all. It is the biggest joke and yet we take it seriously. We actually give a fuck what people think. People that will, one day, never be in our life again and will one day die and forget that time you did something embarrassing.
We gotta all stop taking life so seriously because no matter how many homework’s you miss, no matter how many times you get turned down or dumped, no matter how many times you fail, it means fuck all because it will have no massive income on any of this. Now, you can take this in the wrong way and think “then what is the point in doing any off this”, or you can take this in the better way that we just need to live our life the way we want to and get remembered as the baddest bitch who gave no fucks. It is just like the saying “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” so go and fucking do what you want because you never know, that could make an impact of others. They might be inspired by you, look up to you for years, be in history books. The thing about life is that you either get remembered for something massively impactful or nothing at all. That’s great! You won’t get remembered for the time you told someone you liked them but got rejected. You wont be remembered for the time you tripped up, or the time you failed a test, or the time you forgot the lines in a play. It may seem so big in the moment, but we all just gotta remember that this shit means nothing and that doesn’t even count for a fraction of the time of the universe. The universe will go on for billions of years so that one moment will be so insignificant that it won’t matter, so why should you dwell on it?
So if you are gonna do anything, be that wise women and say “FUCK THIS SHIT”. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
I am not sure who has watched the interview between Harry, Meghan and Opera yet, but in summary, the royalty were exposed for the tyrannical, cruel and racist organisation that they are. The sole fact that Harry was scared for Meghan’s safety is enough to strike worry through our hearts. And for me, as I watched a few clips, there were a few things that hit especially hard for me. I am not sure if others can relate but lets find out.
There have been a lot of people who have been really close-minded after hearing her talk and I really don’t understand why. She literally just opened up about one of the most difficult times in her life and then you go to accuse her of lying. She isn’t a bad person who would do something like that. With every photo from her past you could see the pain in her eyes, despite her smile. That is something you can’t fake. And it is crazy how none of us knew that. We all had a romanticized perception of the royal family and we couldn’t see that we were close to losing her. The woman who is so kind and influential is falling apart. It kind of reminds me of the fact that basically everything out there is fake. Every picture, every smile, every rumor is fake. And Meghan is the walking reminder of that. She had said in her interview that there was a point in time that she was afraid to be by herself as she was scared of what she would do and I know that so many of you out there will understand what she means on a personal level. It just goes to show that these famous people we see everyday on TV, or maybe in real life, are still people just like you and me. They have thoughts that are terrifying to think of. Despite the ‘ideal lifestyle’, they aren’t happy all the time and they don’t always want to live that way.
So many of us wish to be just like these people. Have all their cars, their money, their fame, their skills, but we don’t realise what else comes with the package. For all you know, they are close to leaving this world. They look as though they have everything, yet they feel as thought they have lost it all. But they can’t really show that because of media and their role in society. When I saw pictures of Meghan Markle, I thought she was living the life. I mean she lived in a palace, she is beautiful, talented and independent, yet her voice, which meant so much to her was silenced. For me, to hear all these things that were taken away from her, her rights, her freedom, it makes me rethink so many things. It made me remember that we aren’t the only ones that are struggling. The people who have made it big in this world are also struggling with their mental health, just like us. Sometimes I watch these videos on YouTube that talk about what other famous people have gone through and, although it usually isn’t good for me, I sometimes get a comforting feeling that they are by my side. Of course I know they aren’t, but I kind of just imagine them being here with me and supporting me because they actually know what it is like. This idle that I have loved for so long is so amazing and strong, and maybe I can become just like them. I won’t be destroyed by this illness, and they are the proof.
And then there were the people who would judge her for every little thing she did. Despite the fact that Kate did the same things, Meghan was literally bullied by the tabloids. She held her baby bump? ‘vanity’. Eating an avocado? ‘Killing the environment’. Somebody come get their English teacher because they are reading into this stuff way to much. And like Meghan said ‘that is a loaded piece of toast’. How dare you disrespect this woman for breathing. It is so ridiculous. Let her live. Let her be herself. She is such a great person who doesn’t deserve this type of abuse. It really goes to show that you can bullied for literally anything. Literal famous people with hardly a fault are still criticized and judged. And it makes me sick that her skin colour was an obvious problem in the royal family. I have no doubt this has happened to her in other stages throughout her life, but the fact that her own family are now part of this abuse it so disappointing. They literally have so much knowledge about what is going on in this world, yet they are still racist and cruel. Yes this isn’t all of them, but at the moment we don’t know who it is. There really is no excuse for their actions and they don’t deserve to have her in their family. In my opinion, they made the best decision by getting out of there.
I can’t say I have gone through all of the same situations as Meghan, obviously, but at the end she said that is takes real courage and strength to actually ask for help and… I am not really sure how to write how it made me felt. Just overwhelmed with comfort and hope I suppose. As though she was actually talking to me. And for me, I really look up to female figures because I feel some sort of connection as in, we are going through some of the same things that all girls go through and I want to use my voice just like she does. Her confidence and honesty really affected me and the interview was really empowering. I know I will never actually be able to talk to her in real life, unfortunately, but I felt like I was there with her. I know I have focused on Meghan this whole time and please don’t think I have something against Harry because I really don’t. I think what he did for his family was really brave and I respect him so much, but I am focusing on Meghan because, well she said the most during the interview I suppose. She said most of the impactful things.
But yeah, I guess that overall, what I am gonna take away from all of this is that, famous people are, in fact, real people. They go through tough crap just like us and we can look up to them as an example that, despite what we go through, we can make it. No matter what, there is a chance to success for all of us.
Thank you guys so much for reading. I know I am not the best at getting all of my feeling down on paper… or on the internet, but I hope I got my main point across. Please like, follow and comment your opinions on the interview. Hope you all have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
This list could go on forever and have millions of different outcomes but I am going to talk generally and focus more on how I think so don’t worry if you don’t think the same things. There are countless numbers of things I could say, but just know that what you think is valid and I am not mentioning every little thing.
If I woke up one day and my parents and every other adult could hear what I thought, I would be terrified. And no, not for the thing you are thinking right now, get your head out of the gutter. But I would be scared because I think a lot of dark, scary things. Overall, I think my parents would be worried and scared because I am not the ‘little girl’ they think I am. My parents say I will always be their baby, because I am the youngest in the family, by one minute may I add but that’s beside the point. But no, they would definitely be so confused.
In my opinion, parents think that teenagers only think about how to piss them off or when we can run away and do drugs or something, but really, we think about so many mature things that they would think we don’t care about or understand. I remember one day I was volunteering at this run and then this adult was like ‘oh I think it’s going to be a warm summer’ and being the socially awkward person I am I said ‘I hope so’ because I mean who doesn’t like a warm summer. And then the man said ‘that isn’t good. Global warming is getting worse. But then I suppose your generation don’t really care about that stuff’. When I tell you I wanted to shout, I mean I was ready to have a full Greta Thunberg moment. I didn’t say anything because, well, I am socially awkward. It is so annoying how ignorant some people are. If my parents heard me think they would see how much I think about that stuff because, believe it or not, we are the ones that will have to live in this world long after you are gone. Sorry that was really morbid but it’s true. And you can’t blame us for global warming. You guys are the ones who created these greenhouse-producing products, and you are the ones who raised us to use them. And now we are left to clean up your mess. So don’t tell us that we know nothing because we know that we are going to be the ones to fix your mess.
Adults would also be surprised by how much I actually think about the future. These can be good things and bad things. I think about what jobs I’ll do and how to save, start a business, invest in stocks, get a house, a family. But I also think about depressing stuff because my mental health is not top-notch. I don’t know if this is just me but I actually do think about ‘grown-up’ things. I do worry about not being able to get a good job because I failed my test. I do worry about being homeless because the prices of houses are only increasing. I do worry about how I will handle living on my own and paying off everything. They truly do underestimate us because they only remember the bad things we did. They never remember the mature things we do.
One of the useful things for them being able to hear our thoughts is that they would finally understand why we are being ‘grumpy’. Whether it is because we fell out with our friends, our parents came home angry which in turn made us angry, or we are having a bad mental health day. They always assume that it is us just being a ‘teenager’ and then completely dismiss us. Yes, sometimes we can just be having a bad day, but everyone does. We never say to you ‘why are you always so angry? It’s all of that phone time’. No because for one that is disrespectful for us to say what you say but also because we have sympathy and understand that it must be something that happened today. We aren’t all selfish animals you know, if anything I am overly sympathetic and that is why I am never truly happy. I always think about others and never myself. My goal in life is not to make your day worse. It’s not even close to that. If you could hear what I was saying to myself you would finally understand why I don’t want to talk or why I want to lie in my bed all day.
Thank you for reading this. Obviously I didn’t add all the things they would realise but I didn’t want to make this to long. I might make a part two in the future, so please comment if you would like that and feel free to comment any other things you would like me to mention. Stay safe and know you are loved.
