unlearning problematic behavior is a long ass process
you will fuck up
handle it gracefully.
It’s also… you’re not resetting to some sort of innate default. There isn’t a real core you that knows better and is above mistreating people; it’s — you’re learning a new skill. It’s not about purity. It’s about learning.
This is true, but most of Tumblr acts like it’s about purity.
