This may come off as a shock to some, but it’s true: Courtney Michelle Ahearn has feelings.
I know, right? How could this possibly be true? Someone who’s known for being heartless, a savage, a bitch has… feelings? This can’t be real!
Well, fuckers, here’s a news flash for ya: I have all the feelings. The good ones, the bad ones, the cry so hard your head hurts ones, the scared ones, the fun ones, the “I can’t possibly take this anymore” ones, even the feelings that I can’t control. That’s right, a l l the feelings.
And while this may be a new concept for some of you, who have been stomping on my feelings like a welcome mat, I’ve just about had it. The tattoo across my forehead that reads “hurt my feelings” is getting removed. I’ll no longer allow myself to be silent about the way I feel, and will not value anyone else’s feelings above mine. Too often I consider how other people would feel and disregard the way I do, and it just can’t be like that anymore. My feelings matter. My feelings are justifiable. My feelings are mine. You don’t have to agree with them, but you do have to respect them.
It’s about damn time I learn to put myself first, and keep myself in that position.
