I’m sorry, it doesn’t matter how lovely a person you are, if you are a parasite, I just can’t. I can’t cater to your needs. It doesn’t mean I don’t like you–I probably will. I’ll probably love you, the beauty of your person. But I can’t help you, I can’t do free things for you, everything has a price, and that’s the hard facts of life.

I’m sorry.

And this probably doesn’t apply to nearly 99.999% of you reading this right now, so feel free to ignore it.

Mostly thinking of my mom, but also some strangers I see on the internet from time to time.

    1. Thank you. I don’t often get encouragement to write, or for anything in my life much really, beside hard work for career development and practical pragmatic things -_- like data science or science or what my real day job is. Sigh. Writing. Yes. Definitely. Heh. :)

      1. Je prends plaisir à te lire. À mon sens tu as du talent. Alors, je le dis parce que ni toi ni moi n’avons de temps à perdre. Si tu étais médiocre ou nul je serai resté silencieux.
        Je passerai le plus souvent possible sur ton blog.

        1. Don’t feel like you have to do anything, I don’t want you to feel forced just because I’m mentally ill and I need support and well, out of pity. But I think you already said you weren’t doing this out of pity, yes? So. Yeah. I guess that’s great. Man. I don’t know. Thank you. I really appreciate it. I’m not used to having conversation with new people so I’m a bit out of practice in this regard. Thank you for liking my writing–I know it’s a natural response so what, I don’t know, thank you still. I like my writing style too, you know that? I always have. That’s what’s kept me afloat. Unfortunately lately I have fallen into some sort of despondency, distaste for my own writing, which has killed me and not received any attention. It’s horrifying, not being a fan of one’s own creations. You must first and foremost be your own biggest fan, is what I’ve always learned and practiced. So. I try. I will strive to reciprocate the favor, friend. Thank you.

          1. La pitié est la pire des choses. Je te parle parce que j’ai envie et c’est tout, je ne me suis jamais forcé à faire quoi que ce soit 😎et tu as entièrement raison de croire que tu as du talent autrement ? ça servirait à quoi ?
