This whole thing that’s been going on at work is really fucking with me. It’s also reminding me of past experiences, and it’s just disappointing and sickening to see that those cycles are forever repeating. I’ve been losing sleep, I’ve had this awful knot in my stomach, chest pains, palpitations, and all for a fucking minimum wage job? I’m worth more than this, and I expect more from professionals, from people in general.
The only thing keeping me from freaking out right now is that I have a plan.

I have so many wonderful men in my life, but there are so many motherfuckers out there who have hurt/scared/threatened/taken advantage of me that I have nightmares most nights about men hunting me and touching me and manipulating me and nobody doing or saying anything. I don’t want to fear them, and I want to be able to have at least a small degree of trust in most people in general, but it just gets harder and harder. They use their bodies and often their positions of authority to toy with me and to silence me and it’s fucked up.
My boss did something yesterday that I’m too scared to even talk about on here, and it was so upsetting that I know it’s going to bother me for a really long time, and I know that one of his intentions was to plant fear in me.
Why do so, so, many men have to be so tyrannical?
