2) Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
3) Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
4) Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
5) You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
6) That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
7) Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
8) It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
9) I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
10) Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough. — things to remember, -n.m. (via dirtyberd)
Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).
The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.
Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.—
oh my god this is heartbreaking
I DO NOT support minimum wage. there’s a reason its the minimum. you have the minimum thing that qualifies as a job. ive spent thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours training and working to get to earn 12 an hour. there is no reason someone making my fries should get as much as me. i am a trained, not just anyone can do my job, and it cost me money to get to a living wage, it took determination. lets face it your minimum wage job takes minimum effort. fuck off.
Have you ever considered perhaps the larger problem is you had to spend thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours of training to only make $12/hr? News flash bro, $12/hr is like the bottom level of living wage. That’s just a few dollars short of $25k a year in gross pay(let alone net pay) assuming you work 40 hours a week and never miss a single hour. Meanwhile my college drop out, dope addict friend whose previous job was produce clerk at a supermarket makes more than $14/hr to deal with customer complaints and internet sales at a lamp company. Perhaps you are underpaid as well.
Seriously? $12 an hour is fucking nothing. Why would you be happy about the fact that you spent thousands of dollars on college ONLY to make $12 an hour? That’s fucking sad for you and for the rest of our society. $12 is not a living wage in most of the country just like $7.25 is not a living wage in virtually anywhere in the country.
- French Friend: well, the total cost of me going to Med school is about 406 a year -
- American Friend: THOUSAND?
- French Friend: Um, no. 406 Euro. It sounds a little high but it covers the cost of my textbooks, extra classes and most of my housing. How much is it for you?
i accidentally told my friend the sweetest pick up line ever. i started talking about solipsism (the belief that everything around you was created by your mind) and i went “If everything around me is all my imagination, then you’re the best thing I’ve come up with” she was speechless for a solid five minutes.
