social anxiety goth
YES!!!! I was only discussing this with Mum the other day, and someone else that I was in a shopping centre with who asked me if I get pissed that I’m always getting stares/side glances/etc. Sometimes I forget why it happens then I remember, especially in Newcastle, I’m not the most ”normal” lookin’ person around haha
Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.
This is the tricky nature of discussing differences. No one person fits perfectly into science. While women might be adept with specific instincts when it comes to mating and offspring, we should be careful about how we perpetuate stereotypes in the way we think and talk about ourselves. The idea that women “feel more” is silly and unfounded. Perhaps women are more comfortable talking about these inklings than men. But the notion that women are less intelligent because they are emotional is outdated. Men are not our rational counterparts. We both feel and think. Over time, it’s important to see that what was once thought to be feminine qualities are also just human qualities.
Anarchism is a world view, a philosophy of society; indeed the philosophy of society, for whoever considers the world and human life in their profoundest senses and their complete development, and then decides on the societal form of greatest desirability, cannot but decide for anarchism. Every other form is a half-measure and a patchwork.
Is anarchism desirable? Well, who does not seek freedom? What man, unless willing to declare himself in bondage, would care to call any control agreeable? Think about it!
Is anarchism possible? The failure of attempts to attain freedom does not mean the cause is lost. The facts that the struggle for freedom is clearer and stronger than ever before, that today there are different preconditions to achieving the goal, and that we therefore stand nearer anarchy than had been hoped- prove a development of the desire to wash from the face of the earth what is authoritarian.
Anarchists are socialists because they want the improvement of society, and they are communists because they are convinced that such a transformation of society can only result from the establishment of a commonwealth of property.
The aims of anarchists and true communists are identical. Why, then, are anarchists not satisfied to call themselves socialists or communists? Because they do not want to be confused with people who misappropriate these words, as many people do nowadays, and because they believe communism would be an incomplete, less-than-desirable system if not infused with the spirit of anarchism.
