You are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in.

Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get…
You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else.

This is important.

This… is so important.
I am growing increasingly disgruntled with the idea of someone “needing” me.  Repulsed, in fact.  The idea that I might meet someone, get to know them, get into a relationship with them - and then somehow, by some bizarre twist, they are no longer capable of standing on their own, like they were when I first met them.  They now need me or else their world will crumble.  That’s… horrible.  The first thing I want to do is shout “GROW A FUCKING BACKBONE!”  “Needing” me is not romantic.  It’s creepy.  It backs me into a corner where I know that if I am at some point unhappy enough with the relationship to end it, I will feel horrible because I’m gonna hurt you.  Even if I have the best intentions, even if I truly believe we’re better off apart, your world will crumble when I tell you.  You’re guilting me into staying with you.
You know what’s sexier?  Wanting me.  Knowing that you don’t need me, you would be perfectly fine with or without me, but you want to be with me because you genuinely like me.  That’s awesome.  That lets me be myself, too, because now I know that if I’m unhappy and I end it, you’ll be sad, but you’ll get over it and move on eventually.  And I’ll still feel really bad!  But not bad enough to potentially guilt myself into staying with you in a relationship that I feel is unhealthy or unproductive.  That way, you know that I’m with you because I genuinely like you, not out of some misplaced pity I feel because I’m afraid of hurting you.  That’s awesome.  That’s sexy.  That’s what I want.

Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”

Growth is not a steady, forward, upward progression. It is indeed a switchback trail: three steps forward, two back, one around the bushes, and a few simply standing, before another forward leap.
