"We are set up to fail to get our needs met in Romantic Relationships because of the belief system we were taught in childhood and the messages we got from our society growing up.""As long as we believe that someone else has the power to make us happy then we are setting ourselves up to be victims""As long as we believe that we have to have the other in our life to be happy, we are really just an addict trying to protect our supply - using another person as our drug of choice. That is not True Love - nor is it Loving." 
You’re unable to stop talking, thinking, and feeling about someone else. It may feel like you’re consumed with them, and when you’re not near them you become depressed and want to get through the day just to see them the next time.
you stay in relationships that don’t work and tolerate abuse in order to keep people loving you
You feel compelled to help other people solve their problems. It is something you might live for and thrive off of. You enjoy being the person that people come to for help, and want to feel needed.
Enough said. (All of these I attribute to articles I found on the web. )
…a codependent. I want to be needed. I want to continuously be there for people who might need me, and when they don’t, I suffer from wanting them to be there, from wanting them to want me. Now what am I supposed with this new found knowledge of myself?
“Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.”
And like the leaves,
Fall for autumn
I fall for you.
Someone just used my art on an album cover WITHOUT my permission
I am not some kid who you can just take art from and use it for album covers. I am an artist who has rights. I won’t take this at all.
GUYS REBLOG THIS.
Tweet 1: I can see a lot of people either avoiding Plan B & ending up pregnant or attempting to take multiple doses & getting sick.
Tweet 2: anyone w a credit card (not everyone, I know) can/should use ella ella-rx.com they’ll ship it overnight $45
SIGNAL BOOST. Ella is another form of emergency contraception/the morning-after pill. It’s more effective than Plan B and can be taken up to FIVE DAYS after your mishap, rather than three days. Please spread this around; with all of the anti-choice legislation flying about and how difficult it can be for some people to get Plan B even OTC (like minors, people living in small towns, etc.), this might be the only way a lot of people can get their hands on the morning-after pill.
ALSO. According to my cousin in grad school to be a nurse practitioner, Ella is effective for people who are too heavy for Plan-B/Levonorgestrel. So this is really important info!!
Some of the best text posts in my opinion
I love these
Let’s have more!
..was the fact that I can change the way I perceive things, the way things are, the things that I do that aren’t so satisfying. It’s obvious, but it wasn’t obvious to me. I’m not forced to be a certain way. I’m not forced to do anything at all, if it’s not something that I want.
There are consequences to not being certain things, but why should some of those consequences matter?
I know that I have go to school to be able, let me rephrase that, to have a chance of doing something successful, but there there are many ways for me to do that without completely making me unhappy.
I’ve been stuck in the way that I’ve been thinking, but sometimes change is good and necessary.
So, I feel good about what I’ve done so far. There are somethings I can change and improve on though. For example, being mindful of my needs as well as others, loving myself more by doing what’s good for me, finding ways to manage time, ways to manage stress.
I don’t have to necessarily die for things to get better. The world is a much bigger place. Things aren’t always the same. They change constantly. Bad times don’t last, so I don’t have to worry. Good times don’t last, so I should appreciate them more often.
But most of all, I am grateful for all the things that I have been through to make me realize this, and the sole purpose of me being here is to improve the way things are because I don’t like them now.
Anyone have any thoughts about this?
Cultures that endorse modesty and cultures that endorse hypersexualization are the *same* thing. Both define female sexuality by how it relates to the male gaze. In both cases the female body exists as an ornament either to be kept carefully hidden or put on display. Neither is an empowering feminist achievement.
