this week in massage therapy, i learned about the importance of the spleen. this week in therapy i learned to ask my friends, “what do you get out of the relationship?” instead of outright saying “DUMP HIM.” did you know that if red blood cells are worn out they are ruptured by your spleen and then recycled to make new red blood cells? a very cutthroat process. can you imagine if we applied spleen logic to shitty boyfriends? our system has determined you can no longer be in circulation, but we are willing to work with some of your parts in the creation of something new, refreshed, better.
