Yo, straight men get on my fucking nerves. And I say this as a straight man.

The constant performance dudes feel the need to engage in is exhausting.

Growing up an heir-apparent to the white guy thing, sometimes when someone speaks up my brain immediately clicks into "I can solve this!" or "I bet they're wrong!" and it takes effort to push it back and acknowledge their feelings instead.

Even if I could, even if they were, it isn't helpful. People need to see their need for change themselves and be receptive. And they've lived it—they are in a better position than me.

That doesn't mean I shouldn't speak _my_ truth. But I can't speak others'.

We now live in a world in which no matter where we are, we are always on-line, including, at times, via more than one device simultaneously."

Self care is not a waste of time. Self care makes your use of time more sustainable. ~ Jackie Viramontez
