Treated Like A Trend by Lovers & Friends

You know where you put clothes that you don’t want after you’re done trying them on in the store? At the store I work at, we call that the go back rack but it may be called different things in different stores. Recently, I’ve realized that I feel like the clothes on the go back rack.
It feels like people, whether they be friends or guys, try me out and decide they don’t like me. And it sucks.

Objectively, I’m being dramatic. I’m not lonely and I’m not sad and I don’t feel bad about myself. I know that I didn’t do anything to warrant the way I’ve been treated, but it doesn’t make the facts of the situation any less harsh or real for me. Within the last year I’ve lost two best friends that out of the blue just decided they didn’t want to be around me anymore, and it hurt a lot.

At first, I thought that I had to be the problem. I was the ugly, poorly made garment that no one wanted to buy. I think people have a bad habit of refusing to acknowledge the part they play in their own misfortune, so I was certain that I must have done something wrong. But after examining things more closely, I realized that what happened just wasn’t my fault.

Sometimes the issue isn’t the clothes that the customer is trying on, but the customer. As marvelous as the garment may be, the customer may refuse to buy a garment because of a detail as minor as the direction of a ruffle or because of their own insecurities.
Sometimes people will treat you a way you don’t deserve to be treated, and it’s not because they’re necessarily bad people, but because they’re too focused on things that don’t matter or because things happening in their own lives prevent them from being able to see things clearly. But just because people can’t appreciate a fabulous piece doesn’t make it any less fabulous, and it doesn’t mean that a customer with better taste and more in touch with reality won’t come along and snatch it up.

  • There’s a lot of money to be made in making you afraid, making you hateful, and making you believe that the American Dream is dead. There’s a lot of money to be made in putting you in a bubble where you only listen to or care about people that agree with you. And there’s a lot of money to be made in making you believe that our country was never great or will never be great again. Know that in spite of all the noise and manufactured panic, this is the best time to be alive to date in the most wonderful country on God’s green earth.

  • late to the party but I still Stan America and thicc kings that love America
  • When you work in politics after a while, I think patriotism often feels reduced in one way or another to partisan tribalism. It’s either “rah rah Trump” or “fuck Trump.” It’s calling everyone that disagrees with you a name, and convincing yourself that the only people that love our country are the ones that agree with you. But that’s not what it is at all. And watching @operationfinallyhome surprise a disabled veteran, his wife and his daughter with a mortgage free home just days before the Fourth of July reminded me of that. God Bless America
