"My parents actually almost named me Shelby."
I’ve questioned everything about myself, every step of the way. You have to have the same amount of fear and self-doubt as you do hope and blind optimism.
In the real world, if you have something about yourself that’s different, you’re lucky. It’s not a curse. (x)
Real life is a funny thing, you know. in real life, saying the right thing at the right moment is beyond crucial. So crucial in fact that most of us began to hesitate for fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. But lately what I’ve begun to fear more than that is letting that moment past without saying anything.
I don’t have any fears for the planet because I believe mama earth can take care of herself, and will be fine. it’s good at regeneration. my biggest fear is that people aren’t going to realize in time that we are nature, and that we need to think about that fact and respect that fact. people talk about global warming, the oceans, and the rainforest, and we need to be talking about it, but nothing’s going to change unless we change ourselves. it goes back to the whole female thing—no one is going to respect females until females start respecting females—and nothing’s going to change in nature until we start with our own bodies, mental health, and happiness. the human race isn’t going to be so fine if we don’t take some necessary steps pronto.
