I Should Know Better

and I do. but I do these things anyway.
  1. β€’
    buy a plane ticket for thanksgiving in October
    I go to my hometown for thanksgiving. every year. why buy a ticket for $200 less in July when I can just wait until October instead? πŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ
  2. β€’
    make excuses when complimented
    "oh, this? it was on sale, it doesn't really fit. my make up is such a mess though, my hair fell apart, I'm not used to this humidity" SHUT UP BRAIN AND SAY THANK YOUπŸ™πŸ»
  3. β€’
    say yes when I mean no
    social events, "can you just do me a favor," yoga, "doesn't camping sound fun?" ⛺️
  4. β€’
    say no when I mean yes
    nerdy things, "does it offend you when," cheese, "are you already bored?" πŸ˜‘
  5. β€’
    visiting my ex
    casual always sounds so leisurely. then you realize that in addition to casual, leisurely sex with someone familiar who knows you and smells good, you are also casually, forcefully stomping all over your heart and halting the possibility of a real relationship outside of this unhealthy, casual, leisurely, mess πŸ’”πŸ’”
