"The fervor surrounding trigger warnings … makes it seem like it’s not possible to survive a triggering experience intact. It treats us like we must be protected or we’ll be further traumatized, like we’re broken and we can’t be dropped again and hope to be glued back together. But that’s a wrong way of thinking about trauma: Trauma doesn’t break people. It changes us, and it changes the way we have to operate, and sometimes we feel broken because we can’t go back to the way things were before the trauma occurred, but it essentially boils down to having to cultivate a new self-awareness and new habits. That isn’t so bad. The way to help a traumatized person isn’t to try to pad them from reality, it’s to be patient, understanding, consistent and predictable."

One of the best transitions I’ve ever seen in a movie.

I read somewhere that people were literally falling out of their seats laughing at that scene when the movie was first screened.

I always crack up when I see it :)

"Since day one
I knew this girl would kill me
When she holds me so delicately
No one’s ever gonna fit me
The way she does
Her hands plunge
Straight through my chest
Turning my ribcage into mini blinds
Peering through
To the tired muscle underneath
Our hearts do not beat as one
My bones are aching
Tired of taking all of the ache
From my still just barely beating heart
And she knows
She knows that every time
I can’t breathe it’s because
My anxieties are radiating off of me
Like sewage in a power plant
I do not have super powers
But she gives me X-ray vision
I’ve never felt so at home
in my own skin
Fingertips running along
the curves of my arms
Like I could be superman
My only kryptonite is her smile
And those eyes
Those beautiful brown eyes
Turn my thoughts into jello
I spit out strawberry love poems
But her favorite flavor is cherry
See, I’m an acquired taste
Sometimes all it takes
Is just one bite
But she can have all of me
Take me apart piece by piece
Until I’m all gone"
