have you ever known somebody so shitty they completely ruin that first name for you?
In addition to competition between girls needing to come to an end, and self-love needing to start, what ALSO needs to start is love amongst girls.
Be friends with other girls.
Protect other girls.
Defend other girls.
Support other girls.
And for the love of god, don’t EVER let some shitty boy cause hate between you and other girls.

What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:
- I am unable to do that
- I am too stressed out to do that
- I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
- My body will physically not allow me to do that
- I am on the verge of a panic attack
- I cannot do that
What people hear:
- I am unwilling to do that
- I am just shy
- I am overreacting
- I am lazy
- I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
- I need a push
- I don’t want to do that

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
