Am I a bonsai?

If I were to intentionally trim, and prune, and cut away everything I despise about myself. The imperfect, the unwanted, the raw, the unkempt.

Would I be beautiful? My idealized self? Would others see the dedication and care I invested?

Or would they only see captivity?

The mighty made small. Twisted and conformed to artificial beauty? Roots and branches that took a lifetime to grow, and seconds to trim.

The mere image of a tree.

May my branches reach freely and find form.

"being trans is just a trend"

i wish? like i literally fucking wish "trenders" were a thing. i wish trans people were so widely fucking accepted in the mainstream that people think it's cool to be trans and can safely explore their identities without being ostracized for it

"transtrenderism" is a goal, not a bad thing

Everyone talking about the next big AAA title, but I respect the classics

as a kid seeing those infomercials for ways to store plastic food containers better: "hahaha this silly clip of someone opening a cupboard and containers falling out everywhere, that'd never happen, that's so silly"

as an adult: "this is a daily occurrence"

When people apologize for something, often their first instinct is to try to explain why they did what they did. I think this is one way to process your actions to determine specifically where and how you went wrong. That's good stuff to think about, but it doesn't make for a good apology. Keep those thoughts to yourself, or save it for a later conversation after you've sat on it a while. The core of a good apology is acknowledging that you made a mistake, and how you'll do better in the future.
