Rose, before I go, I just want to tell you, you were fantastic.
And do you know what?
So was I.
Tinni and Sniffer are actually the real life The Fox And The Hound.
Omg. No. seriously? OMG. This can’t be real. Immadienowbye
I’m starting to get really, really fed up with this idea that everyone is in a constant state of competition. Listen, we’re all human & we’re growing & learning and I know I’m not innocent & have absolutely contributed to this kind of behavior more times than I’d like to admit. I…
You couldn’t have put it better, that’s the biggest difference between adult relations- being petty with people you ‘care’ about makes absolutely no sense if you want any sort if positive relationship. I mean what’s the point really?
I’m starting to get really, really fed up with this idea that everyone is in a constant state of competition. Listen, we’re all human & we’re growing & learning and I know I’m not innocent & have absolutely contributed to this kind of behavior more times than I’d like to admit. I don’t really know when it was or whether it even started as a conscious choice, but at some point in recent months or years I’ve let go of that. It’s fucking toxic and all it does is suppress everyone’s ability to express themselves. It creates a fucking disgusting subtext in everyone’s head, so there will always be this invisible wall preventing one another from actually giving a shit about what another person has to say or feel. Everyone seems to think they have each other ‘figured out’ in such a nasty and negative way. I’m starting to realize there are very few people in my life that I can express myself around (whether that be through opinions, interests, feelings, or simple meaningless chatter) who don’t judge me or attach false narrative & motivations to what I say or do. Friendships are supposed to be support systems, not some sort of human exposé. I’ve started realizing that a real friendship means you have a genuine level of respect for someone as a person. Which doesn’t mean you have to agree with everything someone says, it doesn’t mean you have to be attached at the hip, or talk everyday or even necessarily on a regular basis, and you could have totally and completely clashing personalities- I’m just so tired of this catty attitude everyone seems to constantly have and I’m also tired of putting up with this sort of malicious flippancy and utter disregard for one another. If you don’t fucking like me, then fine. I can’t keep clinging to a certain ideal I had about someone in the past & I don’t want to constantly grapple for someone’s love and respect. At this point it should be a given or not at all. Maybe this entire thing makes me sound like a fucking bitch and it might have the potential to create an even larger opportunity for people to ‘read between the lines’ and create some super malicious underlying I have, but I really don’t. I know I’m no better than anyone & have absolutely acted this way before in one way or another- but it has to stop. Like I said, it’s toxic and incredibly damaging across the board, shit like this builds and builds and builds, which is probably/definitely what has happened. I might take my friendships too seriously, but the older I get and the smaller the circle of people I keep close to me becomes the more I realize that my friends are my family and they’re even more special, in a way, because we aren’t born into this relationship, we all have the power to decide who is apart of our lives. And please, don’t misinterpret what I’m saying; it’s not like I’m imagining some idealistic gushy romance where people sit around tell each other how fucking incredible their friends are, BUT this spiteful, counteractive behavior is just something I can no longer ignore, pretend to not notice, or pretend not to be affected by.

My Corgi, North, is very stumpy. (He is full grown, too!)
"I was young. It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that. [Someone brought it up recently] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get. I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’, I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself.”
