WILLIE + 1XO8: UNSAID EMILY
reblog this with your age, country, rural/urban, and what you think respect looks like
I’m 22 in middle of nowhere Murica and I think respect is just being kind and thinking of everyone as equal human beings and doing things yourself so that you don’t burden people unless you absolutely need help, because no one has the time or energy, but also shutting up and keeping your hands to yourself if someone is the type to be kind or do shit for you just out of pure liking to be generous. Because you ain’t gonna get them to stop if they think you’re worthy of their hobby of kindness. That last half is mostly, I think, from growing up emotionally abused and then going to college and every kind soul within a hundred miles trying to go full mom mode on my nervous rabbit ass. Might also just come from the poor person solidarity that’s appeared among people my age–we know we’re all nervous wrecks, but at the same time being kind makes us all happy, so we troll each other by making each other feel valued for once mwuhahaha.
yknow, my first instinct as a former abuse victim and a twenty something is to think that when someone is trying to teach you something, they are either cruel and trying to make themselves feel superior, or pitying and scared for you and eventually going to feel like they have to add taking care of you to their plate of exhausting shit to do and eventually resent you for the extra exhaustion you cause.
Which is a cruel irony in itself because of how much people who are paid to teach clearly care–but that’s their job. But they chose it for a reason. hm.
Another cruel irony is how twenty somethings don’t feel like we were taught anything about adulting. probably because everyone was too worried about banging the pythagorean theorem into our heads and trying to teach us to be racist at home but perfect honors student protagonists at school.
The irony cherry on top is realizing the source of all these things and relearning how to be Human around normal not-cruel not-principal people, but only being able to act human when you’ve been calm and stable for a few months, and acting like a nervous rabbit victim when things are rough. Which is the only time anyone will happen to be looking at you, so all they’ll see is the struggling side of you, which is mortifying. And yes, you know there’s an underlying problem, do you look like the kind of person who has the money, time, or courage to go to therapy? When you’ve got two jobs to work and no retirement fund and everyone who’s ever tried to pry your emotional issue out of you has stabbed you in the back with them?
the little sprig of parsley on top of the irony cake is when its 2020 and you spend a whole year in the struggle zone and it all but puts you back at square one.

I caught up with TMA during s5 aka the 99%-no-Elias-Season and therefore forget there’s a new episode every single week bc my favourite boy isn’t there. Truly the worst of luck
I wonder if this has been done yet
