You don’t have to have a boyfriend to be happy, to be pretty, or belong.

Seizure First Aid. 

Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it. 

100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)

hey guys, i know a lot of people have shared the suicide prevention lifeline number which is really great, but i wanted to remind everyone of this website that does the same, except it’s online. i’m sure there are people who might be more comfortable asking for help this way.

Suicides go up every time a celebrity commits. If you’re thinking of committing, or even self harming yourself, please give these sites a look and numbers a call. We’ll feel for you, how we feel for them.

expeditionhappiness:

Just a reminder that while positivity is a great tool it is not healthy to:

  • repress negative thoughts/feelings 
  • feel guilty for having negative thoughts/feelings
  • feel that you can’t express negative thoughts/feelings 

Negative emotions are a part of life, and a truly balanced cognitive strategy will accept this (while working to change the balance of good to bad and teaching you coping strategies/self care/distraction etc)

If someone wants to wear a short skirt or a maxi skirt, IT’S NOT YOUR BUSINESS.

If someone wants to shave their legs or not shave their legs, IT’S NOT YOUR BUSINESS.

If someone wants to shave their head or grow their hair all the way to the backs of their knees, IT’S NOT YOUR BUSINESS.

If someone wants to wear flat jelly sandals or skyscraper heels, IT’S NOT YOUR BUSINESS.

If someone wants to wear eyeliner so sharp it could slice bread or keep their skin makeup free, IT’S NOT YOUR BUSINESS.

If someone wants to get their nose pierced or get a tattoo, IT’S NOT YOUR BUSINESS.

You know why? BECAUSE THEIR BODY IS THEIR BUSINESS.

Stop saying it’s okay when your soul’s bleeding. Stop trying to dodge knives that always end up in the depths of your heart. Stop looking to the ceiling hoping that tears won’t overflow. Stop taking people’s shit. Walk away. Fuck them all.
