I think people don’t understand how frustrating and hurtful it can be when they say “I know how that feels”.
No, you don’t.
Please don’t invalidate my months of suffering, pain and disbelief because you’re tired due to a common cold. It is not the same.

and every woman you’ve ever loved
every lie you’ve ever told
and whatever it is that keeps you up at night
every mouth you’ve punched in
all the blood you’ve ever tasted
come with every enemy you’ve ever made
and all the family you’ve ever buried
and every dirty thing you’ve ever done
every drink thats burnt your throat
and every morning you’ve woken
with nothing and no one
come with all your loss
your regrets, sins
come with all the gold in your mouth
and that voice like needle hitting record
come with your kind eyes and weeping knuckles
come with all the blue ink
come with your babies
come with your swollen heart
i’ve never seen anything more beautiful than you"
— Warsan Shire (via ethiopienne)
Found a quote that shuts down that “not all men” argument pretty well. (via mykicks)
