You Don’t Need To Know The Whole Story To Understand The Story

you do not need to know the whole story

You don’t need to know the whole story to understand the story.
I don’t tell you that I went to work today in the shirt I slept in last night.
I don’t tell you that I cried on my couch for no fucking reason.

You don’t need to know the whole story to understand the story.
I don’t tell you that I am hungover in the middle of the week.
I don’t tell you I can’t remember the last time my mind didn’t hurt.

You don’t need to know the whole story to understand the story.
You see through the facade; you sense burn out is imminent.
You tell me you are here if I want to talk.
You tell me I better sleep tonight because the bags under my eyes are atrocious.
You tell me I better eat and take my iron pill.
I don’t push back. I sincerely tell you that
I am trying. You believe me. And you believe in me.

And that’s the precarious,
a beautiful cycle that’s the precious,
a beautiful cycle that keeps me trying.

Thank you, for not needing the whole story to understand the story.
– Alicia Cook

Not All Of Us Are Meant To Get Married

I’m starting to think that maybe not all of us are meant to get married and have kids.

Maybe some of us are meant to be the drunk aunt at all family functions.
