"Call a boy a gentleman and watch his shoulders straighten. Call a girl a lady and watch her spirit turn graceful. Humanity was brought into existence by God speaking words into the void of the universe. We tend to become what we are called."

"If a women didn’t want to have sex, though, abortion suddenly becomes okay. Most states and nations with laws restricting abortion to the point of a ban make exceptions for rape and incest. Any qualms about the feelings of the nugget of cells forming in the uterus are instantly, magically less important than the woman’s autonomy if she was raped or subject to incest, because a woman who really, truly didn’t want to have sex is a good woman and shouldn’t be punished for it, whereas bad women who consent to sex, who might even enjoy it, deserve to suffer the consequences."

this is really selfish but

why can’t mental illness be like any other kind of sickness where you go to hospital and your loved ones come and give you flowers and tell you that they love you and hold your hand and make sure you get better

why doesn’t that happen instead of awkward silences and embarrassing tears and messy bedsheets and a bunch of other stuff no one actually talks about

I can’t find a single selfish thing in that.

There needs to be a code word or something that means “my brain is fighting me every step of the way today and I feel like I’m going to vibrate out of my skin, so I need you to forgive everything and go slowly and speak softly and lower your expectations.” And then we could all just be like, “I know I said we could go to a movie tonight but… tangerines.” And the other person would nod and squeeze your elbow or rub your head and you wouldn’t feel like a failure.
