    That's me! I have to admit, I saw a bit of the text on a friend of a friend's Instagram, but I could find the image she had posted. However, my search led me to reddit, which, I assume, is where it originated!

    If anyone's interested, I made a graphic based on this thread (with the original writers' permission) and it's for sale as prints, posters, cards, and stickers!
