if you know someone with anxiety here are some things to/not to say

• don’t tell them to breath
• always tell them the plan, if you leave them guessing it is v stressful
• don’t just ignore them w/o explanation
• when they are having a panic attack get them water
• if they are having a panic attack don’t touch them unless they say you can, it might not seem like a lot but your body heat will make them feel very warm & possibly get them more sick
• DONT SAY “we need to talk”
• let them have space when they need it
• tell them soothing playlists
• understand if they cancel
• talk about how you feel
these are just from person experiences so feel free to add some of your tips!!

1. Everything in life is temporary. That is both a very good and a very bad thing.
2. You know yourself better than anyone else. You don’t need anybody’s approval or validation of the choices you make. 
3. The universe is always sending you signs, pay attention to them.
4. Trust your instincts and listen closely to your heart. They will always lead you in the right direction. 
5. Say what you feel. Always. Be honest to people about how you feel about them. It hurts so much more to silence your emotions than to just spit them right out.
6. You deserve love in the purest of forms. It should not be tainted with arrogance or pride. 
7. Beautiful words mean nothing if they are not backed up by beautiful actions. He could tell you he loves you three times a minute, but if he doesn’t treat you the way you deserve to be treated, his words have no value at all. 
8. Never put anyone or anything above your well being. This includes school, work, friends, relationships and anything else. Nothing is more important than your health and safety.
9. Learn to love the person you see staring back at you in the mirror. She is capable of such miraculous things. 
10. You are here for a reason. You might learn this reason at age 6 or age 60, but you were undoubtedly put on this planet because the universe believes that you can help it in some way. Never lose faith in that.

Where are the female stories? Where are the directors, where are the writers? It’s imbalanced, so given that we are half the cinema-going public, we are half the people [who] watch drama or watch anything else, where is that? … I think the pay [gap in the entertainment business] is a huge thing, but I’m actually more concerned over the lack of our voices being heard.

- Keira Knightley 

Keira Knightley directed by women filmography:

Bend It Like Beckham dir. Gurinder Chadha - 2002
Last Night dir. Massy Tadjedin - 2010
