Like Cancer

"These thoughts are rotten, yank them out;
These words are cancer in my mouth..."

Trying to find the balance of being a 20-something female in a world hell bent on forcing me into a mold I don't want to fit into.

What the actual literal fuck

legend goes that a woman who had vagina dentata or “teeth” in her vagina (be it a demon or std), castrated her lover’s penis on their wedding night. she asked a blacksmith for help and he made her pretty much an iron dildo to break the teeth off

the tradition celebrates this iron penis, hence its name, festival of steel phallus

in more modern times, sex workers would to go to a shrine to pray for protection from STDs while couples would pray for healthy pregnancies and marriages.

it is also regarded as a fertility festival, where couples would pray for the health of their babies or hope that babies are in the future

the tradition has raised HIV awareness and research efforts in japan so like yeah it’s actually a very neat and positive thing yeah

I want you to hold my hand while we grocery shop. I want you to play with my hair while we watch our favorite tv shows. I want you to kiss me in the middle of my sentence because you wanted to taste my words. I want you to rub my back as we fall asleep. I want you to play my favorite song when I look sad. I want you to do these things without having to think about them. Do them because you love me.

How would your life be different if…You walked away from gossip and verbal defamation? Let today be the day…You speak only the good you know of other people and encourage others to do the same.

Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”

this is an important thing to remember.

Me to a fucking T.
