Chivalry is not dead.

Chivalry is not dead.

While you’re catcalling and being a generic player, the chivalrous gentleman to your left just got a girl. Oh — you thought that was your girl? ┬áNo, if you’re a player you don’t get to claim her. See, he’s telling her she looks nice today and making her feel special and you just told her she looked hot and thew out some other generic slang. How charming. While he asks how she’s been and listening, you ask and then text that other girl. The one on the side. The one who thinks she’s the only one.

I fear change. (Also people.)

Wow, I really hate new things. New things absolutely blow up my anxiety. I fear new opportunities and I fear new situations. However, I fear failure and I’m scared of the idea of missing something drastically important in my life just because I was afraid. So I usually end up going with whatever it is and dealing with the crippling anxiety that goes along. Instead of worrying about the opportunity however, I begin worrying about the humans I’ll be interacting with as a direct result of saying yes and acting fearless. You see, I fear humans because (since I am one of them) I know what they’re capable of. I know what they can think, how they can feel,...
