“im gonna go to bed at ten tonight”
Becoming Vulnerable 30 Day Challenge - Day 8  THE THING ABOUT LOSS…is that it’s so hard to describe. you don’t always really know that you feel it or what it’s really rooted in because it can hit you so hard out of no where that you forget that it happened on one level but keeping living it and replaying it on another. you wonder how things could be and what if and when will it be the same and why and this keeps you from really thinking about how you can live and continue with the changes. you know that you are different and it’s affecting everything about you but sometimes it takes years later looking back to fully see how that plays out and then it’s already happened. the only way to know how you will change is to live. and while you search to fill the void but keep avoiding naming really what is missing, you can never fill it. SOMETHING WASN’T RIGHT…when i found that the smallest tasks were the most difficult and felt the weight of thousands of thoughts pushing down on me night after night. i knew that it wasn’t right and that something was hurting me and even now i’m really terrified to name and relive and describe all of that…….it wasn’t right when you talked about locking up your life with mine and paralleling it along every point ten years into the future when shit was falling apart in front of us. why do people think that making promises for the future will fix the now? why is it that we so often resort to promises and words and professions to save our asses? where do we learn to lie or hope so much in ourselves that we don’t think to work out what the needs are right now in order to get us to a more beautiful and liveable future? how is it that the fantasy consumes so much that we forget to notice the cues and the signs that tell us everything is wrong? i’m not sure but i can’t help but get so frustrated when the false promises present themselves everywhere - it’ll get better, we’ll fix it, it’ll all go away, just keep going, just conform, just stop asking me, just stop pestering me. when do i get to/need to interject what is missing and what is wrong on my end? how do i know when i to pull down that fantasy when for you and so many that is what keeps you going? damn, i’m full of questions today. i just want to throw up a little bit when you believe that touristy trips across europe can bring us closer…have you been paying attention?????? what the fuck would make you think that THAT lines up with my dreams and values?? Europe?? seriously??? can you just be here with me now? and learn to stop simplifying what is hard and what is easy? don’t take for granted what is difficult for me and assume that it’s not the part that gives me the most to live for. take some time to go there with me and see all that i am fighting against, just like i try to do with you, and to remember all the ways that it has made me stronger and how much more i know about  who i need to surround myself with and where i don’t want to go. don’t assume that just because i’m not telling you about the times when i am filled with laughter and peace that they no longer exist, i just need a reminder to remember it with you.   (Source: aliciaanabelsantos.wordpress.com)

I’M SCREAMING
“I am not superwoman. My mother is not superwoman. My mother’s mother is not superwoman. I am, we are, soft. Can shatter. Crumble in your hands. Our survival does not mean we prosper. We are like other women but unlike them. So do not tell us we can handle anything. We only seem like superwoman, a figment of your imagination, because you have forced our lives to be perpetual labor with only seconds of relief. If we carry the world on our shoulders and the children on our backs, what are we but your glorified mules slapped with guilt praises of perseverance and strength. Our bones and our blood and our sweat have built the wealth of nations. Our burial should not be the first time we rest.”
