on a silly note its only SORT of the two year anniversary of that breakup today cause we took a mid break up break to go on a kayaking trip together because for all our relationship flaws we were still gloriously, foolishly gay.

its the two year anniversary of my Big Break Up today. without mastodon i would never have left her. i would be an engaged person living in boston with someone who loved me desperately but destructively. we never fought. we never really argued, even. i could have done virtually anything in that relationship and she would not have left me. what i have learned in this time apart is that people who do not hold you accountable do not really love you.

i, personally, think it's fine if someone's like "jokes based on flippant violence rub me the wrong way."

but saying that you don't like any particular type of humour is one of the worst things you can do online, because social media has firmly dictated this is not a boundary you get to set for yourself. total rookie mistake.

and telling the average poster that you'd rather not hear any particular kind of joke causes them more pain than passing a kidney stone the size of a volkswagon.

The Matrix: we're going to spend some time explaining that not everything you see is real. Think about that please.

Movie watchers, seeing the sequels: why Neo have powers in the REAL world?

can't think of any examples of a waking dream I had improving the day ahead but can recall plenty of times it's ruined what could have otherwise been a perfectly benign morning. super overrated. absolute trashbutt experience. please release a patch that replaces dreams with inky black tranquil sleep.

i haven't read that George Packer piece in The Atlantic about the "four Americas" because I suspect that he's just recreated that memeass four quadrant political compass as an overly long thinkpiece and tricked boomers into mistaking it as a useful framework for analyzing this moment.

so anyways. thank you @dirt. thank you @swirlz. thank you @Laser. thank you @Pixley. thank you @boisdevache. thank you @ponfarr thank you also to all of the other people who are here and not here anymore who have loved me and held me on the darkest days. i did not know that even when i am sad i could be doing so much better than i was before. mastodon has been, for all its flaws, my own little miracle.

finding someone who could be a true companion to me felt impossible. i know its stupid because i was and am really young but i felt too broken to be loved. and i feel lucky to have been proven wrong--finding friends and a best friend who can commit to me and i can commit to them without feeling like we need to be smaller. we can change together but not for each other

leaving someone who loved me so much was incredibly hard. i still sometimes wonder if i made the right choice, because i know no one will love me like that again. i have to hold in my mind that that is true because i do not want that kind of love anymore, not because i am no longer lovable.

i met people here who loved me more but differently within months of knowing me than she had in our four year long relationship. i found out that there were people who would listen to me deeply, who were interested in what i had to say, who would love me in a way that fed both of us rather than whittling our lives down to fit against each other. i learned that love can nourish you and fill you up and hold you
