the struggle is that damn real

from roxane gay:

Sometimes, when the world is too much or not enough, I look at pictures of my nieces who are very cute little babies. Here is my niece P, having a rough day. When I see this picture I laugh not because she’s unhappy but because I understand how frustrated you have to be to get to the point where you just cry into the door because the mean people won’t let you go outside to do outside things on a sunny island. I just want to tell her, “Yes girl. The struggle is that damn real.”
