Lets take a moment to thank the turkeys for their delicious and unknowing sacrifices today. Some people say Thanksgiving is a hypocrisy, given history and all, but the centerpiece of this holiday is the annual mass killing of a species after all so... anyway, thanks turkeys, and sorry
~It's hard being the heart breaker ~
"Every day since you left me, I've thought less and less of you"
Is a lie, for me. I think of you no less
My heart gripped with painful nostalgia
Crushed, guilty and sincere
I hope it is true for you.
Think less and less of me
For if you feel as I do
I'd break over and over,
Over and over Your name running round, like a scratched record that I scratched
A picture of imagined tears that I caused
A pool of blood from a heart that I made bleed
You shadow me wherever I walk,
As I walk, you are in step behind
A ghost with a constant cold presence.
And now I've forgotten how you sound, smell, feel, taste.
I close my eyes and I see your freckles and the scar on your face.
Crocodile pains to a judge, but still I hurt your heart and in turn my own
and I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry
A warning to my future lovers, I make ghouls of you for the love I can't reciprocate.
Weighty with other people's heartache
His heart is chipped, parts missing
a part of his heart, it lies rotting in my chest. -
These are the ghosts I broke the hearts of before I met you.
You'll have a #job at some point where they'll drone on about #culture and family and work-life balance. They'll make you feel like family, while they over promise and under deliver. They'll #guilt you into staying late, and foregoing that #raise or #promotion because times are hard. Always remember what's #important and who your real #family is.
Hoppy Thanksgiving to everyone.
Giving to others is the best thing to do, it attracts more good for us, when we contribute we feel better, there are loads of charity organizations which are waiting for your help. Give your time, do something for others:)
17th Stage of Grieving: New Strengths
So this post is for the ones who are suffering today.
Let it out. Write what you are feeling. Call someone. Talk about it. Cry. Walk. Run. Listen to music. Take a hot shower. Take a bath. Ask for a hug. Give a hug. Do whatever you need to do to keep your head above water. But face today with strength. You’re not weak. This will pass. Pick yourself up because this is when you need to learn how. No one else will. Know that you’re not the only one struggling today... Know it can be always worst.. know that you are going to be okay. One day you will feel grateful for how tough you are. How amazing you are. How nothing can take you down. Because you’re going to fight and wont give up. I look up to you because you are survivor, too.
Today....I’m grateful. I can enjoy today with new people in my life. All I feel is love around me. And more importantly, I feel love for myself. That’s all that really matters. Remember that.... today, we are in this together...and the next, and the next.
When we have depression, it often comes with a huge dollop of all-consuming guilt. The guilt plays right into the hands of depression, which feeds back into our guilt….and so on. It’s a horrible never-ending cycle of anguish.

I don't really celebrate traditional thanksgiving much. I grew up very aware of how white immigration to the Americas unforgivingly obliterated native society. Until I moved in with my father as a teenager, it wasn't a family feast occasion, but a day to actualize reality. Either way, today I'm cooking a decent meal for my partner and I, but I wanted to drop in and remind everyone that even though this holiday is corrupt and even though your family might be a bunch of racist pigs... you still need to eat. Especially if you are in recovery. Many are aware of the political situation in the United States and I understand that it can add to moral justification to skip out on the uncomfortable feasting or to limit yourself.. even I'm struggling right now to convince myself to participate. But your eating disorder isn't ethical. It's only trying to hold you back. Even if the mashed potatoes are celebrating genocide, they will nourish your body and make you more and more capable of contributing to the good in the world, so don't be afraid to put your body before any guilt or fear. Enjoy your food with the acknowledgement of corruption, but remember YOU have to come first. Nobody benefits by you eating less, but if you make yourself healthy enough to participate in drives and protests... well, that's all I'm gonna say. Hope everyone enjoys their day 🌸❤️
