and commissioned for me by the super sweet
If you're an asshole to anybody I care about or who is vulnerable in some way, I'll be an asshole to you. treat people with kindness and respect, and that's what you'll get from me :3 I'll be kind to everyone. and sometimes, cutting them off IS me being kind.
Don't listen to gossip or rumours about anybody. get to know people. not everybody is gonna get along, but if you find you can't be in someone's life, leave on good terms, and if that's not possible, keep that hostility to yourself. not defacing someone's image simply because you feel they wronged you or you simply don't like them.
and the most important thing about me, is that naturally, I'm a nice person. I'll be there for anyone who needs it, even enemies who come back to apologize, I handle them with kindness. however, and I say this with sternness, I will never be a cunt to you unless you've hurt me or somebody I care for/protect. if I am being an asshole to you, then its because of how you've behaved, and not because I don't like you. I don't interact with those I don't like. I will say nothing bad, will DO nothing bad, or anything like that. if I cut you out, it's because you've done something pretty nasty.
if you treat others with kindness and gentleness, I will treat you exactly the same and even better probably. good people will always be rewarded in some fashion. if you push me into being social, complain about things I do or don't do all the time and try to change me as a person, I will run away from you. and if you come and keep doing it, I will cut you off.
I didn't reach adulthood without meeting some very nasty people along the way. and I didn't get here without gathering a lot of strength, and self respect. I love myself enough that I will not allow myself or anyone I love to be treated badly. I'm worth more than that, and you're worth more than treating people poorly.
if you know anything about me at all, none of this will be a surprise. I'm not very social, I like to be left alone mostly, but I love my friends and family incredibly deeply and would risk my own safety to protect them.
I gave my persona sharp teeth for a reason. they're hidden until I need them. that's why I've always loved roses, their thorns keep them safe. my hostility keeps me safe from bad people.. you can't grab a rose or a wild animal and not get hurt. be careful, and handle me AND others with care and respect ♥.
and finally, a couple of quotes: "If you can't handle me at my worst, you do not deserve me at my best"
"in any relationship, you can only give what you're able, and you must accept what you get. you can't take without giving, but you should be content with whatever someone is able to give you, no matter how small" - me
"people who realize they cannot control you, will try to control how others perceive you. don't rise to it. people are smart enough to know the truth."
