Let's not sugar coat it folks, we all sit on the spectrum of fucked up somewhere. Some style it on the outside like a statement brooch and some bury it beneath layers of distraction, some split their personalities to cope and others find numbing it out to be the best way to deal with it. But either way the wounded child within always seems to make a special guest appearance no matter how far you go to cover it up.
What I have come to realise is that it's no longer acceptable in this day and age to let this kind of toxicity consume and control you. Far too many people are dictated by their pain and it's frankly getting out of hand. I don't think adults are actually understanding the consequences of these actions especially towards young and highly impressionable individuals who will one day soon be the adults on this planet.
I have had many encounters with functioning contributors to this society where they feel so triggered by me that they have indeed had a full blown verbal abuse fest. *Um hello? Hi, yes I'd like to report an A level asshole.* Especially when it comes from those who you've known you your whole life or even worse those who don't know you at all but feel as if they have the power and authority over you to 'put you in your place'.
The moral of this blog is just get your shit together on an emotional basis and be in touch with what triggers you. You don't need to carry around such loaded baggage, it's just a drag and the world sure as shit does't need it more of it. If you choose to ignore it that's up to you but you basically then decide to skip the whole section of the book where the plot finally gets interesting.
...and you'll forever look to me like a big baby who still wears nappies.
