Not every thought you have needs to be said. Ponder about your thoughts before you decide to share them because not all thoughts are necessary and not all words are wise.
There’s no special romance in chasing someone who doesn’t want to be with you
"i can’t eat that, i’ll get fat"
"i can’t sleep in late today i have to do work"
"no i can’t watch a whole season in one go that’s lazy"
Children are not possessions.
Children are not accessories.
Children are not relationship band aids.
They are tiny people with the same amount of feelings as an adult.
But with less capacity to process, express and healthily contain those feelings when necessary.
Be kind to them.
