instead of “bro” just say “onii-chan”
you’re looking fucking jacked, onii-chan
Aries fear that they don't fear 'fear'. Most of them are insightful enough to know they can leap head on into danger unnecessarily
People will think they are boring. To make up for it they bake food or take people out because they are worried they alone aren't enough
Other people will see how internally wound up and vulnerable they are. How much they really need somebody there; no matter how independent they may seem
Having a volatile family life. Most Cancers fear divorce but also believe it will never happen to them
People will tire of their theatrics and neediness and reject them entirely. That eventually people will give up on trying to assure them and cope with their drama
People will judge them and treat them differently if they are not at least fulfilling some purpose or use for being around
They will be alone forever
They will open up and share a secret to somebody, but be rejected / betrayed
They will love somebody more than the other person loves them. They will need somebody more than they are needed.
Because everyone puts so much faith in them, they are secretly worried they will just destroy everything and don't know who to ask for help
Eventually they will just drift entirely away from everybody. That one day they will be unable to decipher what is rational and not. A true sense of isolation
That people only pretend to like them. Most Pisces can't figure out why they have friends or why they are liked. They are constantly comparing themselves

jean-luc-gohard said: Any advice for a black man with a Latino last name trying to make it out here as a writer? I've been considering changing my last name so publications think I'm white and at least interview me or read my pieces, but I'm hoping there's a less drastic option out there.
I’ve been thinking about your question all day… it really upset me.
it upsets me that you even have to think that changing your name is the solution. I understand where that line of thought comes from but I don’t think it is the solution. I truly think you need to be who you are. I think the world needs every writer and artist to be who they are.
I know there’s racism and sexism in this world, good Lord I know, but I also know that I have never worked for a company that gave a crap about race or sex. all they care about is if they can sell what you’re making.
I do believe there is subconscious and subtextual race and sex issues at work in the world but I think the only way to fight those issues is to not make them your issues. just push past them by being excellent at your craft. by being undeniable.
please take myself for example. it took me a long time to “break-in” years and years. and every day that I was starving to death on Ramen noodles and every day that I saw no light at the end of the tunnel I made it an excuse to get better at my craft.
It wasn’t because I am Jewish or I’m short that I wasn’t breaking in… it was because it’s very hard to do. if it wasn’t hard everybody would be able to. I said to myself: I must get better at my craft.
because every one of my heroes had told me that if I worked on my craft that no matter what happened in my career I would, on the most important level, be happy.
and when I did run into anti-Semitism, and I did, it fed me. it absolutely did not stop me. it completely psyched me up to push through.
there are so many published and successful writers of every walk of life… there is someone out there for you to aspire to be. someone who proves that craft and ambition trump racism and sexism.
the only way to break down all of this is to show up as yourself and craft your stories truthfully and honestly.
It’s almost…. Odaiba Day.
