Driving past the cemetery, having an angry one-sided argument, I said out loud, “You’re such a lying liar. You’re not watching over anyone. If you’re really around, make the next song so I know you’re there.
“We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.”—Thought Catalog (via dadfckr)
I just realized another reason why I’ve stayed away. My messages are full of notes and messages, personal and anonymous, from when Merrick’s dad died. I never read them or replied. I just did but I can’t reply. I apologize. A two-year late apology. But here’s my blanket thank you. It really does mean a lot that you thought that much of me.
I hate how the tumblr dashboard is now. I don’t like having to search for things - like how to reply to a damn message. It’s like when you left home for college and came home for the first break to find your family turned your room into a sports locker for your younger brother and you get to sleep on an air mattress.
That didn’t happen to anyone else? Lucky bastards.
