two girls fighting over a guy is like two beautiful doves fighting over a cup of spilled vomit.
i can’t stop laughing
instead of publicly shaming girls for wearing shorts on an 80 degree day you should teach teachers and male students to not overly sexualize a normal body part to the point where they apparently cant function in daily life
You will be stupid. You will worry your parents. You will question your own choices, your relationships, your jobs, your friends, where you live, what you studied in college, that you went to college at all… If that happens, you’re doing it right.
I used to think that the way to be strong was to be tough. I used to think that to be independent was to not need anyone. But she has taught me that the more vulnerable you are and the softer you are, and the more you allow people into your life and into your heart, the happier you are and the more valuable you are to other people. Ellen has completely changed the way I look at life. She’s made me not worry about what other people think (and I’m still working on that, I have to be honest). But she’s taught me that who I am is perfectly good enough, and that I don’t have to pretend that I’m anything other than who I am. That’s been the most incredible gift that she’s given me. That anyone could give to anybody that they love.

Adults are terribly confused, messed up people. That’s because they forget, really, that they don’t have to pretend all the time.

i was a good student until the crushing weight of reality shattered my hope for the future
He showed the words ‘chocolate cake’ to a group of Americans and recorded their word associations. “Guilt” was the top response. If that strikes you as unexceptional, consider the response of French eaters to the same prompt: ‘celebration.’
I would argue that caring for your body in traditional ways- like eating a healthy diet, exercising, and taking your vitamins- may be the least important part of your health. (I know! Radical idea coming from a doctor!)
This may sound shocking to you. After all, you’ve probably watched many other doctors get on television to tell you that your health is all about using food as medicine, getting enough exercise, and avoiding bad habits. I’m not suggesting that those aren’t great health-inducing behaviors. What I’m saying is that it doesn’t matter how great your diet is if your body is flooded with stress hormones! No amount of kale is going to counterbalance the toxic effects of high levels of cortisol and epinephrine on your body.
So what’s the most important part of your health? The nature of your thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. When your thoughts, beliefs, and feelings are positive, relaxation responses are activated, healing hormones like oxytocin, dopamine, nitric oxide, and endorphins are released, and the body’s natural self-repair mechanisms are activated, allowing the body to do what it does best-heal itself.
I mean I know a lot of women who always have someone, whether it’s an infatuation or a new guy she’s dating or an ex she’s back together with or a best guy friend she thinks she’s starting to fall in love with. I don’t think that is healthy, I mean certainly it is healthy to love, and sometimes I think it would be nice to be reminded that such strong, intense passionate feelings are even possible, but ultimately I never ever want to love anyone more than myself. Never wanna need anyone, never wanna depend on a man for anything other than company and support. I think self-love is the most comfortable and the most valuable; […] maybe self-love is what I’ve gotten used to?
