"

Saying “But there are starving kids in Africa!” without paying attention to what’s happening in your own backyard perpetuates the idea that oppression is something only other (read: marginalized) groups do. There are starving children in Africa for sure [who certainly deserve our attention!], but, owing to racist and classist policies, there are starving children in the US, too…

Not only do comments like this derail important conversations – they appropriate suffering in developing countries to avoid being introspective about one’s own culture.

"Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider."

I need to get drunk and cry on someone’s shoulder

I got the booze. I got two shoulders, you know in case one gets too damp. and all you need to do is get your butt over here so I can comfort you. I’ll listen to every word you say.

I like drinking coffee alone, and reading alone.

I like riding the bus  alone, and walking home alone.
It gives me time to think, and set my mind free.

I like eating alone, and listening to music alone.

But when I see a mother with her child, a girl with her lover, or a friend laughing with their best friend, I realize that even though I like being alone, I don’t fancy being lonely.
