Sometimes the ending is the most important part.

Mental health is a bitch of a thing. 

I can admit to myself, now, that I’ve been on a downhill slide lately. What happened today doesn’t help. Does quite the opposite, in fact.

Those who deal with mental health issues will understand. To those who don’t, I can only say: you’re lucky. 

I recognize now that I need to take care of myself. I need to put all of this behind me, I need to figure out what the hell’s going on in my head before I can do anything else right now.

So, I’m leaving for awhile. My absence will not be very much noticed by most anyone and I’ll slip back into your lives just as quietly.

If you choose to unfollow me here, or on Twitter, in my absence, I understand. I enjoyed our time together. Thank you, for spending time with me. There won’t be any hard feelings. 

If, as I have a few, I’ve unfollowed you, the same above is true. I enjoyed our time together, but we’re not good for each other. I need some air. 

There are quite a few of you who have other ways to contact me. I encourage you to use those ways. I don’t want to remove anyone from my life whom I truly consider a friend. I just need to remove myself a little. Please, feel free to contact me.

If we are friends, if we’re friendly, and you’d like to follow me on whatever path I’m embarking on, please, again, contact me. We’ll discuss it. We’ll see if we’re good for each other. I have my asks set to email me when I get a new one; I won’t miss your message.

I’ve never been able to do this, to walk away from this artificial world I’ve created. Already, I am proud of myself.

Thank you to everyone I’ve made friends with these past few years. You’re all very lovely people. I wish you the best.

I’ll see you soon.

I get kind of cranky sometimes.

Don’t put yourself down. A negative way of talking about ourself, even when you’re joking, will start to affect the way you think about yourself.

you know in like 20 or 30 years or so theres gonna be a section in history books dedicated to this time period where gays were fighting for their right to marry and suffering from discrimination

and the kids learning about it in class are going to be disgusted by the mere fact that gays had to even try to fight for what was rightfully theirs

I hope this will be true. I know it will be. Just as we look back with horror on WWII-era Germany, let them look back in horror at us.
