Okay, so this is strange.
The guy I was seeing for around a year broke up with me over some stupid bullshit and I was like okay, whatever. But I am actually okay. I haven’t cried since I got off the phone with him. And like I don’t think I’m in denial. I think I really am this okay with being apart from him. Obviously I’m a bit lonely because I’m used to texting him. But I’m okay.
To put it nicely I knew he wasn’t my forever and I assumed things would end once the school year started back up, but this break up still took me by surprise.
But I’m okay. I’m not depressed or furious or anything crazy. And I think that’s why I feel like I’m crazy right now. It’s a strange sensation to be okay after something like this happens. And I don’t know if I’m stronger for being okay or if it’s a sign that I was just really weak in this relationship and should’ve ended it sooner.
Either way tumblr, I am okay, thankfully!
Well, it finally happened.
My boyfriend and I actually broke up considering the last few months have been us literally walking on eggshells and being shitty. But I’m not gonna lie, as much as I cared about him, deep down I knew he wasn’t my “person” and that I’d be lying if I said I wanted to marry him, move in with him, get engaged etc because I could tell he was a temporary person in my life. This whole breakup is shitty though because it’s over stuff that if it had happened previously would not have been a breakup but just the way our relationship was lately it was reason enough. Also really fucking shitty thing is that our anniversary was this week, so like that really fucking sucked because I had a lot planned and now it makes me feel really stupid for trying that hard.
But to sum this up tumblr, if I’m not as active for a bit please excuse my absence. But I doubt I’m going to be super depressed or anything, like I honestly think I’ll be okay through this one. MUCH better than my last breakup for any of my followers that have been following me for like four years haha.
And some advice: If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.
that feeling you get when someone texts you first is literally the best because youre like “wow you were actually thinking about me”
in a healthy, close relationship of any kind, when something upsets you, you need to bring it up. as soon as possible, even. cultivate an environment in which you both can talk about things that upset you, with the utmost attention to everyone’s feelings. it’s a really simple thing to do but it’s a thing i’ve been working on for a while and i’m getting actual nice things happening as a result

That was super nice of them.
And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all.
American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because “nobody helped the US in our disasters.”
Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O
It isn’t just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia:
“Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor. A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.”
So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don’t know about it.
