I have a severe aversion to being put on a pedestal/being given the spotlight alone. By anyone, even family. 

It has nothing to do with self-esteem. 

When people say “oh you’re the best _____” or “honestly you’re the most _____” or “you’re perfect/truly flawless” I feel really uneasy. When people become acquainted with a certain image of yourself, especially one that’s highly praised, they are all the more bitter when you fuck up. 

The fall from a pedestal is so much harsher than if you kept someone grounded in reality. Saying “you’re ONE of the most/best” makes me feel so much better. To me that’s saying that my flaws and mistakes have been considered, past and future, and that you know I’m not top of the line. I’m flawed. So while I’m not the worst, I’m certainly not the best. 

I also dislike being considered the best because I revile the idea of ever engaging in hubris or arrogance? Never want to get a big ego. I’m no god/goddess, I’m simply myself. I’m going to upset you and make piss poor decisions, I never want to lose my humility. 

I never want to be on a pedestal.

look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

I truly believe that people underestimates what it takes to be Black, broke, and a woman.
