an observation about mental health and trauma and such
one of the hardest lessons is that these two things are simultaneously true:
1. being hurt is a real feeling and you are allowed to be hurt; your pain can be real
2. hurting and being in pain does not give you the right to hurt other people
everyone at one point or another can and will fuck this up.
the people who admit they've fucked it and will do better next time are the people to keep around you - not the rest.
