book of fears

We have always been more similar than different. We have always been better and stronger together. We are all one. There is only one race and that is the HUMAN race! Choose peace. Choose unity. Choose kindness. Choose tolerance. Choose love. Choose to be HUMAN.

Everyone is afraid of something. We fear things because we value them. We fear losing people because we love them. We fear dying because we value being alive. Don’t wish you didn’t fear anything. All that would mean is that you didn’t feel anything.
—  Cassandra Clare, Lord of Shadows
I’m so scared because you never shut up about how much you love me, but my brother’s best friend couldn’t shut up either about how much he loved his girlfriend, and now 2 years later he finds himself looking at other girls in nightclubs. He’s getting tired of her eventually, and the saddest part is that she’s still into him.
For now you never let go of my hand when we’re in nightclubs, and you don’t want to dance with anyone but me, but I’m so scared that one day, 2 years from now, you’ll leave me alone on a seat, and your eyes will imperceptibly scan the crowd in search of other prettier, skinnier, funnier girls.
You will get tired of me eventually, and the saddest part is that, I’ll still be into you.

Fear overpowers empathy every time. They convince us to choose fear. And we do. We choose it over empathy, love, tolerance every time. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. This is why whole colonies, regions, governments, humans have gotten away with doing despicable, shameful, shitty things.

Don’t get me used to receiving texts from you every single day.
God knows I absolutely love it, but I’m so psycho that if one day you do not text me for some reason, I will automatically start eating my insides thinking you either don’t wanna talk to me ever again or you’re lying in agony in some hospital bed

Hit me with a cool fact of the brain!(short if possible?I have duslexia)Thanks!✨

Ok from where you’re sitting right now I want you to try and slowly scan the room from left to right in one smooth motion. It’s not possible- instead, your eyes move along in little jumps called saccades. Now I want you to lift your pointer finger up and move it along from left to right, following it with your eyes. You’ll now notice your eyes no longer move in saccades but follow your finger in a swift motion known as a “smooth pursuit”. This movement allows our eyes to closely follow a moving object and evolved to aid us in catching prey or keep away from predators. Autistic people, abuse victims and those under the influence of alcohol or drugs often show a lack or defecit of smooth pursuit.
