A Safe Space

Take Your Toxic Positivity Elsewhere

I may not be the friend you wish for, certainly. I may well not be the friend you need. But I am by God the friend you can count on to agree with you when you rightly call your life a shit fire, and will concur when you claim that people are shallow and shitty and selfish and cruel. And I am the friend who will dig a trench around us and fill it with kerosene and light it ablaze to defend you from the lurching horde of Affirmation Zombies who’ll come after you every time you say anything negative.
