“Knowledge has a way of moving our minds to places we never thought existed or only suspected of. The more you seek it and stumble, the curiouser you become because it makes you feel human to make mistakes while genuinely yearning to find out. It makes your time here all the worthwhile to know that what you know will not always be true or that the more you push forward the more you find out, should you choose to accept the curious tendencies built inside you -- Should you listen to the saner you that questions your motives every time you decide to take the path that leads to least resistance and little searching.”—
"PRO LIFE PROTESTING IS TERRORISM"
Really? Voicing your opinion = mass murder?
Vegans and vegetarians protest outside of places using graphic, bloody images of animals but you don’t see anyone complaining about that.
But noo when a pro lifer stands outside an abortion clinic with a sign depicting a decapitated foetus that’s “terrorism”
Protest whatever you want, vegan or whatever, it’s within your rights.
And it certainly isn’t terrorism.
when people appreciate you
It’s almost like you could seriously shift the stars. The feeling you get when they tell you that they do, the pretty big smile that could practically cover up the creeping blush, the swirling in the pit of your stomach that forces you to want to fan girl. It’s the runner up best feeling in the world - the first one, of course, is stuffing your face with chocolate donuts. Wink wink.
When a person appreciates you, all you can think about is him or her - anonymous or not - and how on the bleeding earth could you have positively affected them. And when a person appreciates who you are or even a fraction of your personality, all you would ever want to do then is keep on quoting The Perks of Being A Wallflower’s “infinite” line.
It’s absolutely amazing and wonderful and phenomenal and fascinating and incredible and the absolute “omg” moment where you break into a pathetic happy dance.
So when people appreciate you, the one thing you shouldn’t ever forget as though your entire life depended on it is to say thank you, no hesitations and definitely no alibis.
I was just thinking about how for some reason people think it’s okay to say “You’re way too thin/skinny and you really need to gain weight or you’ll die. You’re killing yourself.” But yet you never hear anyone saying “You’re way too big and you really need to lose weight. You’re killing yourself.”
There isn’t a difference in reality but society seems to think there is, and it’s quite annoying to be honest.
