"Stop setting yourself
on fire for someone who
stays to watch you burn."
"No woman wants an abortion like she wants an ice cream cone or a Porsche. She wants an abortion like an animal caught in a trap wants to gnaw off its own leg."
I bought myself a set of pots and pans. When I left Scarlet’s dad I lost almost every single thing I had accumulated in my adult life. I took my camera and my bookshelf, basically, because we had been together since we were kids. Nothing was mine, it was ours. The computer, everything. Because I stayed at home with her most of that time, it was all “technically” his. I took this little tiny Paula Deen pot and I’d cook scarlet rice and quinoa everyday because it was cheap and we didn’t have a microwave or anything for awhile. I can’t make myself get rid of it even though I don’t need it anymore. Anyway I feel proud of myself today. I never thought I would be able to manage my anxiety enough to be able to work a full time job, but here I am. It’s not the easiest or most glamorous~ work, but I bought my own pots and pans today.
