Strokes of Brain Matter
I'm Kathie.
Effort can change behavior, it cannot change you. Think of this: Effort can put food in your mouth, it cannot produce an appetite; it can keep you in bed, it cannot produce sleep; it can make you reveal a secret to another but it cannot produce trust; it can force you to pay a compliment, it cannot produce genuine admiration; effort can perform acts of service, it is powerless to produce love or holiness. All you can achieve by your effort is repression, not genuine change or growth. Change is only brought about by awareness and understanding.

if u are a cis girl, here are some things not to say to trans girls or transfeminine ppl 

  • you do makeup better than I do!
  • you have better legs than I do!
  • you’re prettier than I am! 
  • etc

these compliments are just a way the disguise your shock at the femininity of “fake” women, compared to you, a “real” woman. stop.

Someone just shat in the car with me and I don’t care. It’s all good. Shit happens. And then you crack a window.

There are times like this where I just want to tell my parents that I’m a trustworthy kid, if they would only trust me. Really, I want to tell them that I am no longer a kid, and even if I was, the stifling of my individuality isn’t a lecture that I need. Realize that I’m the only person that can find myself, define myself, and redefine myself, continuously. Mostly, let me grow organically because I’m doing pretty well.

i get so overwhelmed with fashion and magazines and writing and things i love like please? please never think you can’t do the things you love like it is so worth it to hustle and do unpaid shit and not be able to go out with your friends every weekend to get to a place where you thought you could never be or wasn’t for you
