lemme be your lil ray of sunshine!! ☀️💕
something I’d really like to talk about on here more are my views on social issues, but I just want y’all to know that I’m rarely able to do that.
I’m fine when everyone agrees with me, but that’s not something I can just expect or rely on. I know that people will interpret the things I say (e.g. ‘I believe in religious freedom’) based on their past experiences or expectations in a way that isn’t accurate (e.g. people may assume I’m either supportive of, for example, christians OR muslims rather than both). and it isn’t as simple as correcting them and showing how I truely feel; people tend to see what they want to and won’t change unless they want to. and I find that to be a VERY difficult concept to accept and anxiety inducing.
and it makes me sad that I can’t emotionally handle the anxiety that comes with confrontation, because I think my opinionated nature is a big part of me and standing up for what I believe in (when I have the facts and have basically prepared a fuckin speech) makes me feel strong and like I’m contributing to something good. I’m sorry I can’t share that with y’all as much as I’d like to.
I’m going to comment some things I believe in so that at least they’re out there in the world 🤷🏼♀️ none of the things I’m commenting are things I’ll change my opinions towards, so if you disagree that’s all good but pls don’t come after me, just unfollow and we can keep the peace in my lil safe space
