Sadness has found me this thanksgiving. I’m not sure what to do with it. I’m not entirely sure that all of it is mine. I know that a lot of people are thankful for things—and I am too. I have a lot of good in my life—but I find myself wishing for a lot too. Wishing for the space I give others. Coming from divorced parents I’ve split every holiday since I was 3. I’m exhausted. I’ve been doing so much emotional labor—with little to no reciprocation. I’m exhausted. So I find myself thankful for my resilience. Despite it all I give myself space to keep going.
none of us deserve you. your beauty, your kindness, your endless support and positivity. i’m still so lucky the world brought us together. p.s i know you’re going to read this and be like “what the heck” Happy Birthday, fiff
doing a cool thing next week with @campusphilly where i have to talk in front of a room of college kids about being a mission driven person doing mission driven work. kinda nervous—mostly excited. #bookmetoday
