One smile has the power to… Calm fears. Soften stone walls. Warm a cold heart. Invite a new friend. Mimic a loving hug. Beautify the bearer. Lighten heavy loads. Promote good deeds. Brighten a gloomy day. Comfort a grieving spirit. Offer hope to the forlorn. Send a message of caring. Lift the downtrodden soul. Patch up invisible wounds. Weaken the hold of misery. Act as medicine for suffering. Attract the companionship of angels. Fulfill the human need for recognition. Who knew changing the world would prove so simple?

the first day of "feralheart themes" week one with "insane/evil" characters is horribly ableist. stop labeling mentally ill people as insane and evil, it's not funny or "quirky" and y'all bloggers who are like "dont do this!!!" and you haven't blinked an eye towards this ableist bs... this is why half of us are scared of you all. my mental illnesses do not make me evil or "insane."
