You’re face to face with the man who sold the world.
The people who come running to hug you after you haven’t seen them in awhile are my favorite type of people.
"My favorite for two reasons:
- Keeps me in check. The world is not obligated to care, you can’t always expect that people will, especially when they have their own things and problems and hurt that you are not obligated to care about either. Don’t expect too much from anyone.
- The world is not obligated to care, yet sometimes, it still does. And that’s beautiful to me.”

The Story So Far - Bad Luck (x)
the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.
