“TWENTY THINGS I’VE LEARNED IN UNDER TWENTY YEARS:
1. The most important lessons in life are very seldom taught in a classroom.
2. “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone” is a cliche for a reason—it’s true. It is quite possibly the truest cliche of all time.
3. Everyone’s life seems better to outsiders.
4. We are all trying to find a way to make life more bearable. Keep this in mind when forming opinions of others.
5. Telling the truth will quite often screw you over; honesty is still the best policy.
6. You are not perfect. Nobody you meet will ever be perfect. Forgive yourself and others, then continue to strive for perfection.
7. It seems so much easier to become hardened in life and to stop caring, but you’ve made it this far without taking the easy route. You’re too strong for that.
8. Strength is measured in a variety of ways.
9. There are many things in life that can’t be fixed; however, a good cry and a nap are always a good start.
10. Forgiveness is the greatest gift anyone can ever give or be given.
11. You are not above others. You are not above a certain task or job. There is no such thing as useless experience.
12. We’ve all been dealt some shitty hands. We still need to play.
13. Your room is a good reflection of your life. Clutter brings negative energy. It may be difficult to get rid of things, but if you don’t need it, treat throwing it out like ripping off a bandaid and just do it.
14. Never underestimate the power of a smile or compliment.
15. You don’t have to be good at something to do. You just need to enjoy it.
16. Sometimes you are better off alone.
17. You won’t get what you want unless you ask for it.
18. There are pros and cons to everything. Focus on the pros in order to appreciate the things you have. The cons are there to inspire you to strive for something better.
19. You can be your own hero. In fact, I suggest it.
20. There may not be excuses, but there are always reasons.” pah (via pah11)

tell your sons/nephews/cousins/brothers/any male in your care not to rape and tell your sons that if someone rapes them it’ was not their fault, it is okay to tell the proper authorities, and they don’t have to pretend they enjoyed it

please this is so important

Thanks everyone!

reblog for signal boost

This is really important. Male survivors need support too!!!

All survivors are amazing, strong and brave, even when they didn’t have a choice but to be.

Go up to that laughing child with cancer and tell them how you don’t have cancer so you’re happier, the mentally challenged child and tell them they’re not as smart as you are, if that soldier is having a good day tell him he shouldn’t be because he can’t walk like you can. 
It doesn’t make sense to say that does it? You can’t be happy because I’m happier. Then why can’t you be down or sad just because someone has it worse than you? This philosophy of “be grateful because other people have it so much worse” is terrible.  If you lost both of your parents you wouldn’t walk up to someone who just lost their dog and say suck it up because you still have your parents, would you? 
People can have their bad days, people can be burned out. The theory that you can only have an emotional reaction to something if you’re going through the worst possible situation humanly possibly is complete bullshit.
I’m in grad school right now and when I graduate in December it will have been 8 years of college. I’m mentally burned the fuck out from school and I have every right to be. Am I grateful for my opportunity to get this degree? Absolutely! But don’t tell me I can’t be burned out because there are kids that will never get the chance to go to college. Greg Plitt your quote is bullshit!

Best comment ever!

The best way to get rid of stress is to deal with the thing that is causing you stress.

motivationforfitness:

Devote your attention and your thoughts to FIXING this stress causing issue. Don’t fret about it, do something about it.

Once you’ve made decisions and followed through with action… you will feel infinitely better. You have hit your stressor with a truck. The stress isn’t the problem, the thing CAUSING the stress is the problem. Ignoring it and/or avoiding it with NOT fix anything.

Be as emotionally strong as you are physically strong. Be as dedicated to fixing your mental health as you are to fixing your physical health.

GET IT DONE!!!!

<3

Cheers!

YES!! I also find if I am stressing about something that *cannot* be fixed, do things that can be. Freaking out about that speeding ticket you may or may not have gotten, have to just wait and see if it arrives…. Pay some bills, tackle that ever present to do list, clean something, it means that you (well, I) am less likely to pile stress on stress. I am able to process ‘yes, this bit is sucky, but hey, I’ve done all these other things that have been at the back of my mind’. It works a treat for me.
