i clicked and dragged and im finding this wayyyy funnier than i should
do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.
you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours
there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.
but you will never be
and have never been

every 1st september we joke about getting ready for hogwarts to cover up the very real and very very deep scars of never getting our letters
I got a letter. I found it in the fire place on christmas morning when I was 8 (details details). Anyways, I brought it in to show and the next day because I was convinced that in 3 years time, I was going to be going to hogwarts (the letter was legit looking let me tell you).
So for the next few years, I told people that I was going to hogwarts because my cousins had told me that they had gotten their letters before me and were already at hogwarts.
It wasn’t until I was nearing my 11th birthday that I discovered that the letter was fake and that it had been made by my cousins. People bullied me for years afterwards because of it. I when I was in 8th grade people would still go up to me and go “hahaha HEY remember when you thought you were going to hogwarts?? HAHAHHA”
I avoided reading the 6th book because I had been picked on so much for believing in Harry Potter. (Those late elementary/middle school years are tough y’all).
But now that I am nearly 22 years old, I can look back at this and joke about it, but damn, i would be lying to you if I said that the bullying didn’t emotionally/socially scar me for years.
I will confirm all of these things. You are wonderful. Don’t question it.
AWWW BLESS YOU’RE HEART GILRY <3 <3
