can not trust

His philosophy was a mixture of three famous schools – the Cynics, the Stoics and the Epicureans – and summed up all three of them in his famous phrase, ‘You can’t trust any bugger further than you can throw him, and there’s nothing you can do about it, so let’s have a drink.
—  Terry Pratchett - Small Gods

just remember, every time you call him liar, a fuck up and someone that can’t be trusted, you’re calling that to hundred and hundreds of people more (including myself). because he is the most realistic representation of a mentally ill person, we do hide a lot, we do tend to keep some “secrets”, but isn’t because we are bad people, isn’t because we are liars, it’s because isn’t easy to share what hurt us the must, we sometimes are very insecure about certain things, mostly we are so afraid to be left out because just like you, we just want to fit in… it’s so easy to say you support mentally ill people when things are peachy and good but insult us at the first opportunity when things aren’t looking as good. you attacking Even kinda reinforce why we don’t want to share more with a lot of people, because sadly we are ready for that reaction, we are always ready for that insult….

Like I know people don’t like to hear this on here, but,,, Exercise does temporarily relieve anxiety and/or depression and chronic exercise has even been known to reduce catecholamine and cortisol levels in the brain when a stressor is presented to an individual,,, Lots of research has been done specifically on exercise and anxiety and, like, aerobic exercise is best (running, walking, elliptical, etc.) whereas strength training and the like can actually increase anxiety momentarily. Meanwhile, in depression, any form of exercise helps.

I know y'all don’t like it when neurotypicals present exercise as a form of treatment but (especially w anxiety) it’s been clinically shown to work just as well as medications. Also, like, you can trust me,,,I study this ish and suffer from (diagnosed) anxiety and depression. I’ve been working out and exercising since January and I see an overt difference in my quality of life (ESPECIALLY where my anxiety is concerned).

If you don’t have time or the motivation, then fine, but all the posts I see on here about how exercise doesn’t help just aren’t,,,true. It does help. Even just walking for 20 minutes will help if you do it three-to-five days a week. (Eating well also helps. Couple exercise w smaller portions of foods and/or more veggies and fruits and you’ve got yourself a helpful anxiety and/or depression treatment!)

A parent can do everything to trust their kids, to raise them to be responsible, being completely open and honest. But even then kids can still choose to engage in reckless behaviors, teens can still dive into behaviors and stuff that put their safety at risk. So yes, sometimes drastic measures will need to be taken. Sometimes parents WILL need to monitor internet activity, have to intervene, have to invade privacy. Because kids and teens are imperfect, and can engage in stuff that puts them at risk in various ways, knowing it’s wrong and so doing all they can to hide it and pretend they aren’t.

anonymous asked:

do you have any advice about being nb/trans in a single gendered (very religious) school? i love my school and my friends to death and i'd never want to leave but being constantly misgendered is getting exhausting.

ha i go to an all girls catholic school so YES i can give advice.

     Are your friends loving and helpful? Do you feel as if you can trust them? If so, you could ask them to call them your proper pronouns when they’re around you!! 

or, you can do some pronoun validation in the pronoun dressing room (x)

idk how conservative ur school is, but if you have a GSA or like some “gay group” then i def recommend attending it!
