parenting tip: talk to your kids about mental illness. tell them they might have a hard time. tell them they can ask for therapy and medication. tell them they aren’t alone. tell them if your family has a history of mental illnesses and which ones. just fucking talk to your kids and be there for them.
tell them you’ll never force them to take medication or stop them from taking it. tell them they will always get to have input on their own medical care. let them know how you feel but give them control over their own bodies and minds. help them get treatment when they want it. help them cope when they don’t want treatment. tell them you’re proud of them either way. make sure your kids know that you loving them doesn’t depend on whether they’re “fixed.” help them find support, whether they need it for one night or for the rest of their lives. don’t let them feel like a prisoner. don’t let them feel like illness is a specter hanging over their personality. love them

Feminism and the pro-life movement are not compatible. You cannot say you stand for equal rights while simultaneously trying to take important reproductive rights away.
i don’t want to live in a world where i’m not allowed to enjoy both Shakespeare and Ke$ha.
Wake up in the mornin’ feel quite Hamlet-y
Grab my skull, I’m out the door, I’m gonna act real shitty
Before I leave, overthink if I’m on the right track
Cuz if I kill my uncle tonight, he ain’t comin back
I’m talkin trying to kill my foe foe
But instead kill everyone I know know
9 deaths in a row row
life sucks, in denmark
but the fightin’ won’t stop
tonight, imma kill
all the traitors in sight
We have a natural tendency to assume that a remarkable chemistry between two souls is confirmation that they are meant to be together. In the heat of profound feelings, it seems counter-intuitive to imagine ourselves separate from our beloved. But chemistry and longevity are not natural bedfellows. Just because we feel earth-shatteringly alive with someone doesn’t mean they are supposed to be our …life partner. They may have come for a very different reason - to awaken us, to expand us, to shatter us so wide open that we can never close again. Perhaps they were sent from afar to polish the rough diamond of your soul before vanishing into eternity. Perhaps they just came to give you new eyes. Better we surrender our expectations when the beloved comes. They may just be dropping in for a visit.
