I;m excited for school to come, but terrified at the same time.
Most of my friends ignored me all summer. My best friend got a boyfriend, I just found out.
It scares me so much knowing that I am not anyone’s best friend, just a friend. No one ever asks to hang out anymore, and no one keeps plans with me, where in the last week I had three people cancel because they forgot about something they had to do, never stressing what happened. If it happened once, I’d understand.
But when they also stop answering my texts is when it hurts.
Now I have to see them daily, work with them, and pretend like the last three months meant nothing.
I want to hang out with people. I have a lot of extrovert-ness in me. And I’m afraid that without being near people, talking to them, I will slip back into a depression. It’s happened before.

im gonna fuckin throw up
Okay, okay calm down, people.
While you are all losing your mind over ‘cultural appropriation” of an Indian dress, nobody actually consulted THE INDIANS.
In our country, if a foreigner wears an Indian saree, we actually appreciate it. It shows that the foreigner respects us enough to try our clothes. And the saree, mind you, is not a religious thing. Hindus can wear sarees, Muslims can wear sarees, Sikh’s can wear sarees, Jain’s can wear sarees and so on.
Like Americans have short dresses, compare that with sarees. Going to a party? Saree. Going to temple? Saree, and so on.
Some Indians wear it, some don’t. Some hate it and think its oppressing, some love embracing the unique style.
Point is, don’t hate on her for wearing this. Don’t hate on anyone for wearing sarees or any variations of sarees. We love to see others embracing our culture. Why do you think we open our gates to allow everyone to practice yoga and find spiritual meaning?
Culture is not meant to be kept within four walls, it should be spread.
I did not know this. That is really interesting to find out. Thanks for the information.
