Anxiety…

Anxiety.
It’s not a quirk.
If one more person treats my badly because of my anxiety I will lose it.
“Why can’t you just…”
“I’m sure it’s not that bad…”
“Why didn’t you…”
“Stop being so paranoid…”
Shut up okay. No. That’s not how you treat someone. I’m not being rude. I’m not ‘off with the fairies.’ I am a human being. I deserve to be treated like one. It’s not okay for a neurotypical person to walk all over me. Stop sighing. Stop being selfish. Start treating people with anxiety as they deserve to be treated. Because one day while you’re getting annoyed at the person for being ‘flaky’ or for saying sorry too much… one day you’re going to lose that person. You’re going to lose the most genuine person you have even met just because they were different from you. Just because you had to put in the extra effort. They’ll be gone. Off to find people who accept them for being human…

I’d Rather/Just me

I was just me
They were them
I was rainfall
and you were sun

I was sun when you were rainbows
And I was darkness when you were light…

But I’m just me and that’s okay
I’d rather be rain when skies are grey
I’d rather splash in the puddles and get my socks wet
I’d rather speak out than always regret
I’d rather be quirky or weird or strange
Because at the end of the day
They were different too…
