What most people forget about depression

mindaltering:

The thing about depression is that it either takes away all will to self-motivate and do what makes you feel better, or the things that made you feel better before have no affect on you anymore. That’s what most people forget. I hear all the time you should go meditate, go outside, take up some yoga, go socialize, or you’re not trying hard enough. With the other person not even realizing that if it was that easy, depression would probably not exist.

Plus-Sized Woman Rocks Bikini on Hollywood Boulevard to Promote Body Acceptance
Los Angeles is known for many things: great weather, a laidback lifestyle, and Hollywood’s biggest stars. But for many who live in La La Land, the pressure to conform to a certain beauty standard can leave them feeling downright depressed.

Why didn’t this have any notes?

It doesnt have any notes because its a black woman doing it. Had it been a white woman this wouldve been national news.

it doesn’t have any notes yet because it was literally posted today calm the fuck down (also hell yeah this woman rules)

  • My therapist:Look at nature. Look at flowers. We never walk into our garden and say "Oh wouldn't that flower be so much more pretty if it were taller? Or red instead of pink?" No, we don't. Because nature was created perfect just as it is. And so are we. We are part of nature, we are how we're meant to be, we are perfect just as we are.
  • So, maybe we’re the
    generation of the selfie,
    but we’re also the generation
    that grew up in a tainted,
    Photoshopped world
    with every impossible beauty standard
    shoved down our throat
    through a tube
    because eating has become
    a guilty pleasure
    and condemning beauty ideals
    won’t go straight to our thighs.

    And if, by chance,
    we are able to destroy the
    demons that you’ve planted
    inside of us with your
    constant advertisements and rules
    that play behind our eyelids and
    take root in our brains,
    then let us take our fucking pictures
    and capture that moment when
    we felt beautiful because all this world
    has taught us is that
    our beauty is the greatest
    measure of our worth.

    Scoff at our phones all you like,
    these delicate extensions of
    our fingers, but know that
    through this technology
    that you couldn’t even
    begin to understand,
    we have smudged the entire
    world with our fingerprints.
    We are the generation of knowledge,
    and we are learning more than
    any that came before us.
    So, frown at my typing fingers;
    I am using them to grasp power
    by the throat.

    Try to invalidate us,
    but we’ve heard our
    parents talking about
    the world’s crashing and burning
    since we had sprung from the womb.
    We know you’ve fucked up,
    and we’re angry about it-
    the kind of anger that
    fuels knowledge,
    that I feel in my veins every time
    I read the news from my phone
    before school,
    that sticks in my throat like honey
    in a debate;
    the kind of anger that simmers,
    that sharpens teeth into daggers,
    that makes this generation more dangerous
    than you could have ever imagined.

    We are the generation of change,
    and goddammit, we’re coming.

Adopted her today, she has only one but its a gem

f you dont reblog this I’m judging you

Honestly one of the most beautiful cats i’ve ever seen

Are you missing the giant fucking scar on its face???

Just because she has a scar doesn’t mean she’s not pretty. In fact, I think she’s beautiful. Her fur looks so soft and floofy!

99% of cats have soft and fluffy fur, the only reason you’re calling this cat beautiful is because it has a giant scar on its face. If it had both eyes this picture would have 22 notes and nobody would give a shit. Stop calling it beautiful. It’s not, and it doesn’t matter because it’s a cat and it doesn’t understand English.
It’s badass looking but it’s not the most beautiful cat in the world. Stop making everything about beauty. It doesn’t matter if the cat is beautiful. Is it a nice cat? Is it housebroken? Does it play well with children? What are its political views? These are all things that are exponentially more important than “Is it beautiful?”.
You people will go to such great lengths to call every empty playground and dead leaf and disabled cat beautiful to make your blogs look more accepting and worldly but the truth is you wouldn’t give a shit if it wasn’t to make you feel good about yourself.

That above comment is probably the most honest one I’ve seen in a long time.
That being said, I would love to have a badass looking cat like this. Let’s be honest, it has only one eye, and it’s has stitches all the way down it’s face. It’s not the prettiest. But it’s fucking cool.

When my mom’s out in public, she sends me pictures of lesbians she sees.

Jesus I envy that relationship. 

this is like the time when my mum took me bra shopping and the girl measuring me up was a lesbian and my mum said to me “i’ll go take a walk around the shop so you can talk to this nice young girl” and gave me a look as if to say “chat her up”. 

My mum tries to push me towards cute possibly gay girls and then disappears. She did it in Primark once and I found her hiding behind a pile of knickers, watching me.

i love all of your moms

When I was 17 I was convinced I was in love with the check out girl at the grocery store 5 minutes away from our house, so my dad went to get milk and somehow found an appropriate point in the conversation while buying a half gallon of milk to give her my number. Three days later she called me and asked if I wanted to come over “to watch a movie” and long story short my dad got me laid thanks dad.

This is the parent I aspire to be

    Keep in mind:

    eating will not hurt you

    eating will not make you gain an unnecessary amount of weight

    eating will keep you alive and give you energy to live

    eating will get easier as time passes

    eating is necessary

    eating is life

    eat.

    An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures

    The show is called ‘All or Nothing’

    Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.

    I seriously would really enjoy a show like this. Especially since it would shatter so many sterotypes!
