(Suddenly realizes that I am currently going through my “boys are icky and gross” phase. I’m a late bloomer I guess)
I am the potoo
I spend most of my time sitting on the edges of tree branches,
pretending to be a stick or dead leaf
it’s not as easy as it looks
I sing virtually exclusively around the period of the full moon
because, according to legend,
I am a mournful spirit in love with the spirit of the moon
I approve of this so much.
I never had a “boys are icky and gross” phase I’ve literally been chasing dick since birth
she was a girl
he was a boy
can i make it any more convoluted and unnecessarily complicated

The trick is to learn to like yourself. It’s not easy. I’m not all the way there yet.
Pema Chodron: Detox
When you refrain from habitual thoughts and behavior, the uncomfortable feelings will still be there. They don’t magically disappear. Over the years, I’ve come to call resting with the discomfort “the detox period,” because when you don’t act on your habitual patterns, it’s like giving up an addiction. You’re left with the feelings you were trying to escape. The practice is to make a wholehearted relationship with that.
