A heart and soul that have rooted themselves exponentially deeper than what she allows others to see. There are moments of growth, blossom and wilting, redefining or affirming her sense of self over and over again in time. On occasion, unknown to many, a quick and controlled burn is healthy for her; a cleansing of the growths and blemishes so that all the rest of her beauties and perseverance may thrive.

Well, I’m glad that I’m done sobbing and replaying how else I could have handled that scenario 1000 times.

I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.
Yadriel & Maria appreciation post ✿◕‿◕✿
HE SAID MORE THAN HE DID ALL SEASON. I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T CARE. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST BEING NICE AND LETTING HIS BABY MAMA SEE THE BABY THAT HE PROBABLY DIDN’T REALLY WANT AND BARELY LOOKED AFTER BUT I WAS FUCKING WRONG. I WAS WRONG ABOUT HIM. HE’S JUST QUIET. THE DUDE IS STOIC AS FUCK AND HE FUCKING LOVES MARIA AND HE LOVES THAT BABY AND IT’S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY HE GUSHES AND TALKS TO HER LIKE MARIA ASKED HIM TO DO BECAUSE HE WANTS HER TO GROW UP SMART AND LOVED.
But also look at how cute the baby is dressed in each visit. Who did that? Daddy did. But that’s exactly the kind of visual cue that gets lost when he’s getting judged for his bald head, tattoos and stoic (thuggish?) demeanor.
Sobbing over this moment forever.
Have y’all seen a baby Twi’lek? Because I want to adopt one.
Damn my intergalactic motherly urges.
I’m starting a new religion. The two houses of worship are mountains and punk rock shows. FOBxCHICAGO.
Unfortunately, the people who are supposed to love us aren’t always able to give us the kind of love we need. Whether they are our mothers or our fathers, our grandparents or our siblings, some family, no matter how good their intentions, leave us feeling empty, invalidated, uncared for, and alone. And on the days when that pain becomes too much to bear, our work is to recognize that those people whose love we so desperately pine for are never going to be able to meet our needs. Not because they don’t care, but because they can’t change who they are.
Their scant affection isn’t a reflection on our worth. It isn’t even about us. It’s about them and their own limitations and struggles. It’s about their unique way of expressing love and the fact that it doesn’t match up with our own. And we don’t have to internalize that. What we need is to start reaching out to the right people. We need to create a family of people outside of our family. People who can meet our needs and reciprocate our love.
We need to appreciate our families for the ways in which they are able to show they care, and be accepting of the ways they can’t. We need to make peace with who they are and if necessary, we need to give ourselves permission to let go. We need to know that our worth isn’t something another person’s love can give or take away. We need to trust that with or without their affection, we are enough."

That moment when a post is exactly describing what you were just talking about. How nice to know I’m not alone.(via feministcounseling)

"I stood in front of the monitors watching 75 women stand in a circle, dancing and yelling while two women humped each other. Taylor Schilling, who plays Piper on the show, had hung around to watch the chaos. She leaned over to me during a take and said, “When have you ever seen this many women on screen together?” In that moment I realized we were doing something really special.”

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK. “Unconsciously?” Source this shit. There are too many people on this site who are young and should not learn that they have to check themselves in order for men (or anyone) not to approach them if they don’t want to.
Paxam Days—my ass. Psych blogs like this are a joke but they also infuriate me. Ugh.
***I’m glad that you guys threw that edit in there. Thank you. I’m a little biased because I violently oppose this finding on multiple fronts (both personal and scientific). However, you can only facilitate critical discussions by labeling what is generally considered a “fact” and what is a “myth.” Another blog may get credit for submission, but it is not a good source. Whether you like it or not, your blog is educational. Make sure that it is a good, solid education that does not perpetuate harmful myths, or don’t do this at all. Be socially responsible. Otherwise, we’d all be believing that men can’t get in touch with their feelings, ESL individuals have universally lower IQ scores and that zodiac calendars are scientifically accurate.
