Tangled In The Great Escape, Pierce The Veil
You’re allowed to be sad, but please don’t think that nobody loves you.
I’m trying to find the balance between recognizing the truth of others’ criticisms and the conviction of my own judgment.
I want to know that I’m not picking the opposite of something to prove to someone else that I’m doing the right thing.
I’m tired of anxiously twitching every time I invest my heart into something you don’t approve.
I know everyone else has a vision for my life, and if I’m making a mistake, maybe I want the chance to find out on my own.
I would hope you could cheer on my dream, no matter how silly it sounds or how you’ve made up your mind or how you think you’d do it differently. You might despise writing or dancing or music or ministry or charity or the arts — but that could be resentment for something you didn’t even try to understand.
I want a fair chance to pursue my passions without extra discouragement and distraction and division: because you are making a hard thing even harder.
You can either be the voice that fuels my self-doubt and fear, and I’ll have to overcome you, or you can be the voice that grows a deeper thoughtfulness about my own direction and creates forward momentum, and I’ll thank you later."
me right now!!!!! :O
just because you dont break skin or use a razor doesnt mean it cant be self harm
just because they never hit you doesnt mean it cant be an abusive relationship
just because you can communicate in some circles doesnt mean you cant have anxiety or socializing issues
just because you have a good day doesnt mean you cant have depression
Do not let your perception of how your struggle should be silence you. Your problems are real and they deserve attention.
