ACTUAL HISTORY*** The Battle of Thermopylae was a battle taking place in 480 BCE. It was the place of one of the most famous final stands in history. The battle, where Greek forces of 300 Spartans, 700 Thespians, and 6,000 other Allies of Greece would block the Persian Army, with a strength far higher than that of the Greek army at this battle, from passing through the only road that The Persian King Xerxes I could lead his army through. This would result in a Persian Victory, however at a huge cost, which Blew Xerxes away.
Xerxes would send messengers to the Greek states offering blandishments if they submitted and gave earth and water from soil as a ticket of sorts. The state of Athens threw their envoy into pit, and the Spartans threw theirs into a well, and said "Dig it out for yourselves". A congress was held in 481 and an alliance was formed .
Xerxes army would first encounter the Greeks in a place called Tempe. To counter this, Xerxes sent his army elsewhere, which the Greeks decided the best Choke point would be at Thermopylae, as well as sending a naval fleet to a naval choke point named Artemision. Xerxes offered Leonidas chances for surrender and peace, and even the offer to rule Greece with him. Leonidas refused both times, saying this quote "If you knew what is good in life, you would abstain from wishing for foreign things. For me it is better to die for Greece than to be monarch over my compatriots." The second time he was more aggressive
The Spartan King Leonidas, was put in charge of the forces at Thermopylae, knowing he'd face certain death. Xerxes sent in a scouts to report on the sizes of the Greek army which he found laughable in size.

I’m sooo over caring about your judgments. I am also sick of trying to constantly be grounded all the time. As though that’s the only way to be takin’ ‘seriously’ in this world. Fuck all of this shit. I know that I have to experience being in this body. I am in this god damn body. And sometimes...I am fucking not. And I don’t fucking care anymore. Yes, I am an open channel. Yea...you miiiight be talking to someone else sometimes. Yea, that probably doesn’t make sense to some of you. I’m sick of trying to mold myself in a way that won’t offend some people. God damnit, I may be offensive! In fact, I am offensive! I am extreme. But ya know what...that’s my mottO... If you don’t like it...move on!

Loneliness doesn't come from being alone, it comes from being misunderstood. From being by yourself in your own reality, with nobody around that really takes the effort to meet you in there. With that being said, I can't stress how important it is to really listen to our friends and family. Listen to understand. Have a good week!! 💕
