I wish I could choke on the tightness in my throat.
My ex boyfriend used to always tell me “no one will ever love you as much as I love you” and I used to think it was romantic. Like, “aw he loves me so much that no one else’s can ever compare!” Now I struggle with accepting love and affection and identifying someone’s genuine interest in me because of it. Basically, know that statements like that are very emotionally and mentally abusive and manipulative and be careful not to romanticize it like I did.
college is catered towards the able bodied and able minded. school applauds people who can stay up all night, skip meals, and work endlessly. that kind of extreme contribution is expected. why are disabled people being squeezed out of academic institutions? why should I feel inferior because of some arbitrary and ridiculous standard?
growing attached to people but not wanting to be that clingy friend
