"Every therapist I have had (I am too embarrassed to say how many) has done some gentle prodding, asking if maybe I suffered abuse as a child, since many of my symptoms seem to align with those of people who have. I spent years racking my brain, trying to remember, wondering if there’s someone I could blame in all of this. In some ways it would be a relief to know that something caused all of this. But on the other hand, I’ve stopped looking for a reason. Maybe there isn’t a reason, maybe there is, but finding one wouldn’t fix anything. And it might start a whole new nightmare. If there’s something I don’t remember, I think I prefer to keep it that way."

I’ve really had it up to here with pretentious punk white boys who trash religion all day long and don’t give a fuck about the interrelation of faith and cultural identity for people of color; like sorry the only culture you know is Ian MacKaye and the God Delusion, your overbearing christian upper middle class family and the shitty midwestern town you grew up in
