And once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.

spaceelf:

People who say sadness doesn’t hurt physically apparently never experienced feeling so sad. I’ve felt it in my legs, my jaw, my head, my quivering lips, aching eyes, and my aching chest. It hurts my chest the most because it literally feels like your heart is in pain.

What if it’s a phase?

What if it is? That doesn’t stop you being asexual right now.

It may be tempting to hold back on accepting your asexuality in the hope that eventually you’ll ‘bloom’ into a sexual person. I’m not saying that might not eventually happen, but consider this: do you want to spend your life thinking of yourself as an undeveloped person, living for the dreamed of day when you’ll become whole? Might you feel more comfortable accepting who you are now as a whole complete valid person? Maybe one day you will “bloom”, and if and when you do, you won’t have lost anything by being comfortable in the mean time.

There’s no shame in identifying as one thing and then later identifying as another. Your identity isn’t meant to limit you. If you’ve moved on or changed, then by all means describe yourself differently. If you fear you might be different in the future, that doesn’t change which label is most useful to you in the present. There’s nothing wrong with change.

AVEN FAQ

I feel  this is something people need to read. This can apply to any sexuality, not just asexuality.

Feminism: Why are women paid less than men for doing the same jobs?
MRAs: Why can't we hit women? They say they want to be equal.
Feminism: Why do rape victims get blamed and shamed for not avoiding rape, instead of rapists getting punished?
MRAs: Seriously, if women want to be equal, we should be allowed to hit them.
Feminism: Why are young girls socialized to believe their value is linked to their appearance and discouraged from pursuing certain fields like math/science?
MRAs: No, but you haven't addressed my question. Why are you all such hypocrites? You say you want equality, I should be able to hit you then.
Feminism: Why are gender roles so restrictively defined so as to cause harmful stereotypes about people of all genders?
MRAs: It's not fair - as a man, people can hit me, but women are so special, we can't hit them. I don't see you asking for equality there.
Feminism: Why are female-gendered insults so common, as if the worst thing you can do is be a woman? Why are positive traits in men (eg, assertiveness) viewed as negative traits in women?
MRAs: SHUT UP, YOU BITCH, AND ANSWER MY QUESTION. WHY CAN'T I HIT WOMEN?

look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to
