Being raped.

Sure, you know it as a thought, a ghastly concept that happens to other parties. And then it happens to you, and there is no way to be ready for how it will make you feel like you are nothing more than an orifice. Like you are worthless and disgusting. How “youre going to be” terrified of men for years and not let anyone signature you. How you will try to date and eventually give up because you can’t feel anything.

How your center will start to race anytime you verify a auto that looks like his, or march past person on wall street who vaguely looks like him. You could be thousands of miles away, but that dread is still there.

Tyranny of the majority.

In school, if you got a question right that most of the other people went incorrect, you two are praised for being smart.

In real life, if everyone else around you believes something wrong, it simply becomes right.

# 4

Realizing that making and retaining friends is extremely hard. People drift apart pretty easy.

# 5

Living with chronic anguish. It’s not something you can understand unless you deal with it yourself. And it’s not just the pain that wears you down. It’s the isolation, losing the capacity needed to do things you cherish, and watching your life slip through your thumbs like sand.

When you don’t see your parents often anymore and they get noticeably older each visit

# 7

The first time you go to jail. Aside from the ‘oh shit’ feeling you have about whatever landed you there, there’s the realization that you can’t leave. It clangs really obvious, but “ve been thinking about” it: in the vast majority of places and situations you find yourself in, you can leave. It might not be wise, it might not be right, and it might have consequences, but you have that option. You’re used to having so many potentials in your date to era that you don’t truly “ve been thinking about” it. Until it gets taken away. You largely get used only to it with experience, but nobody is prepared the first time.

Burying their child. I have a few storeys, but any acces you cut it, some of the most rational parties I know have embed their own kids and I don’t conceive anything before or after , no degree of rehabilitation can obligate you the same again. A lineage friend’s son was basically implemented because his roommate was selling weed and some assholes decided to kill them for all of a duet ounces of fucking marijuanas. A decade later, they put on a face, but you can tell they’re still just going through the motions. It’s heartbreaking, there’s nothing you can say that I’m sure they haven’t already heard a thousand times from well bidding friends/ clas, it’ll only never be the same.

Watching a mother gradually slip away. I’m currently supporting the side of my dying baby. Two weeks ago she had a massive apoplexy. She is currently in a coma like territory in a hospice facility. She will never recover, merely gradually slip away a little more every day. It anguishes me to see her in this current state. I talk to her as if she was normal, as they say hearing is the last sense you loosed. I reassure her everything is ok and there is nothing to worry about, but I leave the room sometimes merely to cry.


Alzheimer’s and Demetria. Now imagine that you didn’t know anything that you knew before. It all unexpectedly is just so far away for you to remember. What if your mom, someone who leaved birth to and grown you unexpectedly remembered whom you or embarrassed you for someone else. That frankly scares me more than death. The summarize of everything that parties did with their lives is really on held in your remember, fabric is temporary and can easily be destroyed or taken. But imagine your on your extinction bed and you die exclusively knowing a few of any details of your life. Imagine if your child came up to say hi and you couldn’t recognize who they were and you thought they were a stranger. Imagine the hurt they would feel. Alzheimer’s is one of those things that really hurts everyone around you. It’s like your body is their but a whole bother person is occupying it and your not their anymore. You’re not you anymore.

Googling an age-old ex to see how she’s do these days since you haven’t spoken to her in over 7 years, and conclusion her obituary online.

The loss of a sibling.

I lost my brother a couple months ago and while he was sick we never understood his extend as a reality. It thumped the whole family like a truck. Nothing of us are similar and likely will never be the same.

The family dynamic has completely changed, the personas “were having” replenished for the past 30 years all shifted. We’re all adrift. We’re all flailing. We’re all seeking to fill the void of his presence.

No amount of accepting it will change these things. There is a void in our kinfolk that merely he could replenish. We “re not”, are not, and will not be prepared for dealing with it without him.


Sudden disability. Its been almost a decade and I still donaEUR( tm) t feel like I fully grasp it and how it reforms everything lol…

Aint nothing “re ready for” that.


Childbirth. I merely had my daughter five days ago. I anticipated I was prepared for labor, but holy s* it, back proletariat is the worst sorenes IaEUR( tm) ve ever felt in my entire life. No quantity of mental preparation would have realise me ready for that. On the plus, my husband finally won the argument of two children( our daughter is his second) vs. three kids. Because IaEUR( tm) m never doing that shit again.

Also, the never ending anxiety of aEURoecan I stop a altogether vulnerable and fragile human alive todayaEUR?


The feelings of your first true-life anguish. That felt like nothing I’ve ever felt before. Couldn’t eat or sleep for a few weeks and the effects have lasted months after. I’ve had love before but it took me til 28 to truly feel sorrow like this.

Breezing through “schools ” with high grades without even trying then getting to university and recognise you can’t do that anymore but you literally got no idea how not to. You don’t have the penalize to study properly let alone know how to study properly.

A shart.


Their first kid


Toast popping up from a toaster when it’s done. S* it gets me every time.


Honestly probably another large recession. Most people don’t have very much money saved…so I can’t even imagine how severely that would destroy the country.


First apartment. Not that it’s a bad thing, but all the reading in the world, and you’ll still forget to buy one random piece that’ll f ** k your night up.

For me, a can opener. Didn’t have a goddamn can opener!


Winning the mega-millions/ billions lottery. I’ve read numerous narrations about how it broke people’s lives.


The first time your toddler puts an F* bomb. You don’t know whether to laugh, scold them or claim it didn’t happen and is hoped that the government never does again.

The lifestyle change from becoming a full epoch student to full hour work. It’s been a year, i feel as if i’m still adjusting.


Winter. It happens each year and beings always remember how to address it. I live in Alaska and parties have been here for years and don’t even have winter expenditures or boots. Don’t even get me started on driving where reference is snows that’s a whole different can of worms.


Paper cuts.


Turning the light-footeds on after waking up in the middle of the night.
