shoutout to all the other ex-gifted & talented/honor student/straight a/senior editor/star student/99th percentile/once-creative burn-outs who have, since high school, realized they are truly miniscule fish in a giant, endless ocean, criticized themselves to the point of creative paralysis, and participated in so much self-sabotage they no longer see the point of doing anything at all because they’re just going to ruin it for themselves anyway
this one’s for you
Further shout out to those of us who’s parents continue to push our supposed excellence on us in such a way that just makes our self criticism even worse.
Because I don’t know about you guys but my parents CONSTANTLY bring up how well I did on math sections of standardized tests and then act like I’m lying when I very obviously can’t do anything beyond basic addition/subtraction/division/multiplication without a calculator and a paper describing named mathematical theories and even then it sometimes takes me five minutes because oh you did so well on standardized tests it’s clearly just you not accepting how smart you are stop saying standardized tests aren’t accurate they wouldn’t be standardized if they were inaccurate.
im glad dogs cant read the “no dogs allowed” signs so they dont feel sad & left out
My mom told me to “find a man who respects you like a sea captain respects the sea.” A man who looks at you with awe and reverence but knows you are a force of nature. I like that.
