It’s late and I can’t sleep….I have to be up early and I my mind won’t seem to rest.  I’m dealing with some inner troubles.  See, there are things in my head that are bothering me, things that do not matter.  My logical mind knows this, but my anxious brain won’t let me put these thoughts away.  I wonder how this will affect my future both immediate and long term.  I want to talk about and express these feelings, but I know doing so will only be annoying to anyone else.  First of all, many of these are fears that I have previously expressed that are still bothering me.  I don’t really know how to deal with them.  I really really want to talk, but that would be breaking promises to not start up deep discussion late at night and to drop things that I have no control over (and things that happened in the past).  So here I am, tumbling late at night and sighing, hoping that one day I learn how to internalize irrational, deep fears and anxieties like a normal person.

I CANT WAIT

I remember seeing this gif last year and staring at it for a good five minutes. I usually just queue stuff, but this? This is very important.

AND WHY I DON’T FEEL SORRY FOR YOU….

The author of this article reminds me ferociously of my ex.  He treated me horribly and destroyed my self-esteem, he was even cheating on me with his ex girlfriend, but I won’t go into details.  Anyway, he practically ruined dating and relationships for me, I have almost no sense of trust (fortunately, I’m building it back up slowly but surely ^_^).  After we split up, I was devastated at first, but I picked myself up, got my life together, started finding myself, and even met somebody wonderful!  My ex couldn’t stand it.  Literally within the week after I began dating my current boyfriend, my ex called me crying and claimed, “I really messed up and it was my life’s goal to fix things with you but now YOU have ruined that.”  He was trying to place guilt on me and I was totally disgusted.  So, NO I do NOT feel sorry for the guy in this article because I have been Brooke and it is not a fun role to play.

Some days, it just feels easier to give up.  I mean, it seems the deeper I delve into the world of feminism and women’s rights, the sadder I become and the harder it gets to fight for the cause.  Even little, every day battles.  If somebody says something that makes me uncomfortable or sounds really sexist or chauvinistic, I usually speak up.  Often times, I am immediately told to ‘calm down’ or ‘lighten up.’  I’m a cold-hearted, castrating bitch because I have feelings.  That or everything I’m saying can’t possibly be true because there is ‘no such thing as gender inequality because the law says so.’  You know, people who say that are right, there are no laws that specifically inhibit women from having the same rights as men.  But what about those unwritten laws out there?  The laws that say I should be gentle and sweet.  The laws that say my emotions are weakness.  The laws that say ‘boys will be boys’ when referring to the rude behavior of males or ‘female logic’ when referring to ‘stupid’ or ‘illogical’ things that ‘all girls’ do. The laws that say a woman who posts a million selfies a day is ‘immature,’ ‘narcissistic,’ or ‘a whore’ instead of ‘insecure,’ ‘lonely,’ or ‘in need of a real friend.’ The laws that prevent me from going braless in the name of COMFORT because men will ogle me free breasts and it’s my fault because ‘they cannot help themselves.’  The laws that say it’s ok to talk about rape as long as it’s a joke, but nobody wants to hear your story of the time you were harassed because ‘we don’t talk about that, it’s disturbing.’ The laws that keep a man who has been raped or assaulted silent because ‘men don’t get raped.’ All of these laws sound outlandish when written out like this, but it seems every time I try to fight this patriarchal malarkey, I am shot down with this very reasoning.  ”It’s just a joke,” “Are you on your period or something?” “If you get drunk and raped dressed like that than it’s all your fault, you should have known better.” These are real statements that I have heard.  I used to really hope that this was a small amount of men who believed these things, but I’ve heard this kind of thinking from men I respect, men I look up to, and even many many women who have become so brainwashed that they, too, view themselves as ‘the weaker sex’ and are often ‘ashamed to be called women’ because of how ‘all girls’ act.  I am everyday fighting a losing battle to wear a short skirt downtown or speak my mind without losing friends.  So, some days, it just feels easier to give up.

How do you prep for a really difficult and possibly uncomfortable conversation?
