What You Need To Hear
I believe in treating people and ourselves with patience, kindness, and respect. BUT, sometimes, we need someone to take us by the shoulders and firmly declare what it says on my coffee cup, “No one cares. Work fucking harder.”
Sympathy is required always. People have different lives with incredibly different privileges and abilities and obstacles. The thing is, the world rarely gives a fuck about your problems. This means you have two options really: 1) You could wait around and do nothing, hoping the world will eventually see how hard you have it and keep complaining about the things you can’t control. Or 2) You could do everything within your being to push through and live the life you want to live.
Choose option 2.
