I have to believe that you’re a monster.
There’s no other way. It’s like in movies,
how they show us why the bad guy became bad?
It’s to keep us from hating him. It’s to make us understand.
I don’t want to understand anymore because when I understand,
I love you and I don’t want to love you anymore.
I wish I could see you on the street without wanting to throw up
but I can’t look at you without falling half in love with your eyelashes.
I can’t look at you without wishing you were stretching your hand back for mine.
I have to believe that you’re a monster because if I go back to thinking that you’re just lovely and damaged, then I’m done for.
I don’t know if I can still call it love when I’m scared of you.
I don’t know what to do when there is only dark in your eyes.
People will whisper about our love for years to come.
How terrifying it was to be on in the same room
with two people so destined to ruin each other.
How completely we ruined each other.
People will whisper about our love for years to come and this is what they will remember:
How brave I was.
How I understood and understood until I couldn’t anymore.
How, I’m sorry, but I couldn’t anymore.

Self Care When You Don't Have the Spoons for Showering

freeasthepaperburns:

1. Keep face wipes and deodorant by your bed. They’re easy and can make a huge difference in how clean you feel
2. Take sink showers. Washing your hair and your face in the sink quickly works especially well if you’re a survivor having anxiety about being naked (yes, that’s totally normal)
3….

Please don’t make fun of anyone for not being able to take a shower you don’t know what goes on at their house.
