a good thing

It may seem like everything is terrible a lot of the time, BUT: 

I was just in a sold out venue with hundreds of people SCREAMING along to True Trans Soul Rebel, and Against Me! played all my favorite songs and I found a corner to stand in where I could claim some personal space and also see really well, and every time I thought about the asshole ex-boyfriend I took my therapist’s advice and went “hey, how great is it that he’s not here and I don’t have to worry about keeping track of him or the inevitable temper tantrums when something doesn’t go the way he wants!” (so great. so fucking great.) I went by myself and i didn’t talk to anybody and i may now be losing my voice from yell-singing along and before one song Laura Jane Grace went “this is for everybody who doesn’t feel at home in their own skin and feels alienated from the world, because i feel like that 99% of the time, and the 1% where i don’t is up here on stage, so I wanna share that with you guys.” I JUST LOVE HER SO MUCH SHE’S SO GREAT.

I walked out grinning. I haven’t been that genuinely just HAPPY in a really, really long time.
