is such a beautiful thing to feel and to express.
it’s different from happiness, from contentment, from satisfaction—focused not on results and output, but on intent and thoughtfulness. not “thank you for doing, but thank you for being.”
and i don’t think there is a more validating thing one can possibly hear or say than “i appreciate you.”
can somebody please explain to me why exactly i’m supposed to give a fuck about the day amerikkka freed itself from britain’s colonial vice-grip to gain the autonomy it would later need to perpetuate imperialistic violence all over the rest of the world?
