Do you ever feel as *intensely* in love as you do when you're a teenager again?
I'd love to feel that burning, passionate romantic positivity for another person but with the added frame of gained wisdom.
Think I've had several layers of guards up for so long that I've denied myself this end of the emotional range

griping about the left
i remember when i used to -- ok, i've never really accepted that the left gets a pass because of solidarity or whatever.
you want to show solidarity? don't mess up in basic ways, like enabling right-wing thinking, or giving abusers a never-ending pass.
otherwise, go try to drag liberals away from their never-ending death march towards the far right, because you're wasting our time.
i also remember how people use the most miniscule of disagreements to constantly infight.
if you can't tell the difference, that's not my problem.
Bigotry isn't ok just because it's directed at a horrible person. Be careful about who you're hurting in the process

Who is successfully using a self-publishing platform, and do you recommend your platform for episodic or series type content?
Definitely need text publishing, hopefully audio/video content, ideally tar/zip/7z uploads as well?
I was doing my morning exercise while sick with a cold that weakened me and made me feel off, joking that my body was saying “hey, this is weird, but alright”.
A wise friend noted to me that brains do that too. External problems in our lives make it hard to push through but our brains want to do it anyway, roll with the stress.
It made me think—maybe it’s okay and right to let our bodies and our souls both rest. Acknowledge that it’s hard. Tap out if we need to, and love ourselves. ❤️
