this is a long one,
1. If I follow you, I more than likely read your post and have watched you grow. I’ll miss some weeks, but I read a lot of your posts, guys. like a lot. and I like a lot of your stuff. that’s why i follow you. because either A. i know you from school/life and we have similar taste or B. (the reverse) we had similar tastes (or something in common) and thus have gotten to know you.
that’s why there are a lot of you that I have held legit conversations with, and why I respond to your arbitrary questions. which leads to
2. If I follow you and you post a question or problem, whether it be arbitrary, real, or simply to complain and I read it, I will respond. I’ve seen individuals get upset that I try to give advice. (so i unfollow, duh) It is in my nature to try and help. even if my help may not be welcomed. if you don’t like it, tell me rather than getting upset so I can move onto another person. I don’t realize sometimes (often, actually) that something is sarcastic or hypothetical. I’m motherly. like I’m the eldest and only girl in my group of cousins. (up until ~4 years ago, but she’s a baby). which leads to
3. If you want to talk, you can talk to me. If you just want someone to listen, just be like ‘yo, no advice. just let me rant.’ I don’t mind it. I’ll try not to judge. I only get kind of judgey when it involves drugs or murder or something illegal. (or child porn or disrespecting individuals based on appearance. you know major stuff). Even if I don’t follow you back. It’s okay. you can talk to me. or not.
4. I know a lot of you guys have been with me since the beginning, or near it (2+ years). So I know you guys have seen my ups and downs and have seen me grow. And for those that haven’t, I apologize for becoming, essentially, nauseatingly happy. But it was a very long process. A lot of tears and hard work and kicking people and lifestyle choices out of my life. It was tough and I’m on a good road. I don’t know if it will last, but I’m glad I’m on it.
Concluding, I’ve gotten a lot more optimistic and positive than I used to be. So if I respond to you in a cliche manner or just too happy for your tastes, I want you to know that I am truly being sincere. I really mean it when I say it takes a while, but it will get better. I mean it when I say it’s okay to get help or it’s okay to be alone. I have faith that everyone can find happiness. I have faith that everyone can learn to not hate themselves. It won’t be the same process as my own, but you’ll be okay. I promise.
