I don’t understand how building community isn’t manipulating you all
into being there for me when I need
someone. I don’t understand how you all
could possibly see the real me or
even expect to see the real me when I
don’t know who I am or I refuse to see
who I am because I am too ugly & cruel & not a
good person & not who I am & maybe it’s not possible for
me to act out of compassion & like
did you do something kind to manipulate someone?
Isn’t that what we all do? We don’t want to be alone so we be who we need to be to be with people?

People manipulate each other                                    to                                         survive.

I thought that’s what we all were doing. How are you doing it, then?
