so graceful

It’s scary being quoted. Cause when you say one thing worth repeating, people assume all your words are worth repeating. And the moment they find out they’re not, suddenly everything you’ve ever said is invalid. Why do we do this to each other? We treat people like they are either “worth listening to” or “they don’t know shit,” but actually it’s both, all the time. We find someone worth quoting, we raise them up on pedestals and worship them, then lynch them the second they fail us, which they will inevitably do because they’re human. The irony is that, by doing this, we aren’t thinking for ourselves. If a person has failed us so spectacularly that we must now label them “unworthy,” then it likely means we’ve given them too much power over our own thoughts and possibly choices. If we believed in ideas instead of people, perhaps our governments wouldn’t be so fragile. Perhaps our friendships wouldn’t be so fragile. Perhaps our courage to speak up wouldn’t be so fragile.
