Being an adult is realizing that $5,000 is a lot of money to owe and very little money to own.
My therapist looks me in the eyes and holds my gaze and says, “I need you to know. You will never, ever be cured. You cannot be cured. You will learn to manage better, but you will never be cured.”
Being diagnosed with PTSD is like being told you’re terminal. That’s how it feels sometimes, anyway.
your life is worth living even if you’re “not doing anything”
your life is worth living even if you are “letting life pass you by”
your life is worth living even if you stay in bed all day every day watching netflix
you don’t have to be big, beloved, important, beautiful, wealthy or famous
there is dignity in just being
it is ok to be
you merely have to be
Thanks this makes me feel better
My mom used to go on rants and say, “All men are terrible monsters and the scum of the earth,” etc. And I’d say, “Nooo! Not all of them!”
But now I’m older and I know better.
And she still rants about men.
And all I can do is nod and agree. Because “not all men” is a given. It doesn’t need to be said.
i never understood when people were like
'ever notice how all men say 'not all men' all the time lmao'
like… wow yeah
it’s almost like when you generalise a group of three and a half billion people, many of them are going to rightfully complain about it
Let me take you back to the Iron Age 3,000 years ago when the female deity was phased out and masculinity was prized over everything else. Whoa wait, what’s this?? Stone Age historical acounts have misogynistic themes as well. Hold up that’s… 3.4 million + 8,000 years of women being treated as subhuman?! Wow. It’s almost like we try not to generalize but have all this history of violence behind us and the moment someone tries to remind men of this, all “some” men can say is
Not all men.
