“Life is complicated. It starts before we’re ready, it continues while we’re still trying to figure out the point of it. And it ends long before we’ve worked out just what to do.”—Adrian Tan, for Reader’s Digest (via lovemidori)
Read this. Take a second to stop looking at all the pretty pictures on your dash or reblogging all of the fun memes and read about what is happening. Just read it. People need to know what is happening before they can help, and the more people that know the better. There could be something you could do, or there could be something someone you know could do. Maybe one of your followers wants to help, or knows someone who can help. Just read it, and please reblog posts regarding Libya. Ignoring it because you don’t want to hear about something so sad won’t make it go away. Please.
UPDATE: To the apologists who believe tacking on the caveat “I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that” after saying “rape happens for a reason” somehow negates the utter backwardness of saying “rape happens for a reason”: It doesn’t.
I think we spend too much time wondering why we’re not good enough - we spend too much time over analyzing, over-thinking, and overreacting. We waste too much time putting ourselves down, so much that we don’t ever stop to see that well, we are good enough. You are good enough. We spend too much time with our heads down and hearts closed; and never get a chance to look up from the ground and see that the sun is shining and tomorrow is another day.
“The truth is that there are a lot of people like you, us, with strange hobbies or talents or gifts and we try to hide it because we’re afraid that it makes us seem weird or it will turn people off, but that’s a mistake. What makes me unique has brought every person I love into my life.”—Pushing Daisies (via 36974)
“I wish there was someone who got what was happening, and could just look at me and tell me I wasn’t crazy, that I wasn’t being stupid. Someone to say, “I’m proud of you, and I got your back… no matter what.”—Haley Graham (via 36974)
