“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”

Paul Higgins: I can do most of those, some better than others. Not design a building or program a computer which is something I must correct (the programming not the building designing)

Terrible book, but a great quote.

This website is fucking important, ok? A lot of us struggle with loving our bodies. A lot of us compare ourselves to other people’s size and progress. A lot of us look in the mirror and don’t like what’s looking back.

Well, guess what? You don’t see yourself how other people see you. This website proves it. What it has you do is guess where you fall on this scale, then you put in some measurements and it shows you where you really fall on the scale.

I thought I was on the larger end, not the biggest, but certainly bigger than the average. I put in my measurements and BAM, I’m at the lower end. I see myself as 15% more than I am. That’s a huge difference.

So the next time you’re feeling down on yourself, thinking ‘I’ve made no progress’ or ‘I look just the same’ or even simply ‘I look fatter than her’, remember that your perception of yourself is warped.

he left me over 6months ago but left my life just over 2months ago,we are still in contact but I know he doesn't care have as much as I ever have. i don't know how to stop caring,how to untangle my sweaty palms from his messy hair. and I miss him more now than I ever thought possible. I made his life more complicated but even in the scheme of my messy life, he made mine easier.I know we were just hurting each other by being together- but he was like an addiction and was always unsure about me



Let him go, sunshine. A person doesn’t have to be bad to be bad for you; don’t feel guilty about pulling away from a relationship that only hurts you. You deserve better. Don’t give your heart to people who don’t know what to do with it.

There will be others. You will find someone else who’s like the rock to your storm and they will make the world make sense. Until then, you have to put down your own anchor, and take a stand for yourself and what you deserve.

You can make it through this, sweetie. I promise.
