Fair Point: see & agree

I release all my thoughts expecting you to agree. I want you to agree with me. I want to pull you over to my computer to gawk at the Instagram engagement photo so you can think it’s tacky just like me. That’s all I want. Just match my enthusiasm for once. Because I feel like no one does. While a decade-old internet persona can attest that people have in fact agreed with me, it still feels like no one agrees with me. Not the way I want. Not one hundred percent. Because no one does. That’s damn near impossible. But I still feel like it is. I feel like someone out there is hearing everything I’m saying and nodding right along. They’re cheering me on, telling me to keep going the way I’m going. I’m not sure what direction that is, but I know it’s leading me to something big. Someone’s on my side here, when it felt like for years the cheese stands alone. It could all happen. I absolutely believe it could. I’ve never been so sure of something in my entire life. It all happens the day you look back at me in disbelief at what’s right in front of your eyes and say, “you seein’ this shit, too?”

Because yes. Yes I do. Don’t you?

Fair Point: a paragraph from me to you

This is the least worried I’ve ever been about anything. It feels like all the agita I’ve incurred over the past howevermany months will never bother me ever again. Nothing will. Nothing can. Something locked into place inside of me again today, and this time, I won’t be looking back. For this is who I am. This is who I’ve always been. And I have nowhere to go from here but up. I won’t let the powers that be dictate my life or what I’m about, and it’s your decision whether you want to comply or not. I shall not. I’ll land on my feet wherever I go, if I even go at all. I don’t need them to carve my path for me, as I cannot listen or respect their mixed messaging. And therefore, I shan’t. That’s not to say I want to go at this alone. You can come along if you’d like, but I will not force you to go. I don’t believe in forcing my will onto others, something these devils among us have made clear as day they’ll do. I don’t need you to agree with me, I don’t need your to praise, nor do I need to see or feel your misplaced ire. I just need you to be you. To see what’s going on. To be awake and alert to the increasing stench from it all, and use your newfound powers for good. We will never get anywhere as long as we’re pitted against one another. We have differences, but I believe so many more similarities can be found if we just tap that vein together. It’s not going to be an easy road, but you’d be amazed at how fast things go. The whole world can change in an instant. You just have to want it to. And maybe it’ll be easier to swallow if you just stuck with me this time. For real. Try it. I can’t promise you perfection, but I can promise you me. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll find forever in there, too.
