explaining anxiety is the fucking worst because you feel like an idiot for being bothered by the things that bother you but it’s such an intense fear right at your core so you have to go through all of these other levels of yourself to try and get someone else to understand it

Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.

And remember, they are socialized to accept rape culture as “masculinity” and “normal.” This isn’t inherent biology. So they can be socialized away from it. This quote = everything.

I’m jealous of girls that are super gorgeous. The ones that everyone always wants to be around, the friend everyone wants to have. The one that everyone looks at and thinks “damn she’s beautiful.” The ones that have a naturally cute laugh, a perfect smile, the ones with cute clothes and that look perfect all the time.

I am unable to describe exactly what is the matter with me. Now and then there are horrible fits of anxiety, apparently without cause.

Decided to stop in at this ranch for the night right by the North Cascades. And oh my goodness, it is heaven! Horses all around, ivy and flowers, new hiking friends, wildlife everywhere, right in the middle of nowhere with insane views. So much loveliness.
