emotions are important

Being Emotionally Health

Emotional health is an important part of overall health. People who are emotionally healthy are in control of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They are able to cope with life’s challenges. They can keep problems in perspective and bounce back from setbacks. They feel good about themselves and have good relationships.
Being emotionally healthy does not mean you are happy all the time. It means you are aware of your emotions. You can deal with them, whether they are positive or negative. Emotionally healthy people still feel stress, anger, and sadness. But they know how to manage their negative feelings.Research shows that emotional health is a skill.

•Be aware of your emotions and reactions. Notice what in your life makes you sad, frustrated, or angry. Try to address or change those things.
•Manage stress. Try to change situations causing you stress. Learn relaxation methods to cope with stress. These could include deep breathing, meditation, and exercise.
•Strive for balance. Find a healthy balance between work and play and between activity and rest. Make time for things you enjoy. Focus on positive things in your life.
•Find purpose and meaning. Figure out what it is important to you in life, and focus on that. This could be your work, your family, volunteering, caregiving, or something else. Spend your time doing what feels meaningful to you.

You know what we have to do now, right?

We have to protect and look out for those who will be targeted by these nationalist right-wing bastards.

Refugees, people with any other skin colour than white, people with names that “don’t sound German”, anybody who is not Christian (Muslims especially, also Jewish people of course!), and LGBT+ people.

Some of them are Germans (i.e. have German citizenship), others are not, but they all belong to Germany, they all are a part of it, they live among us and with us, and they belong to us.

We have to watch out for each other.

History mustn’t repeat itself.

You don’t have to love abortion. You can dislike it. Maybe it even makes you sad. The way you view abortion is up to you. If you don’t like abortion, you can advocate for proper sex education, access to birth control and other things that have been shown to lower unplanned pregnancies. You don’t have to like abortion.

But what you can’t do is disrespect somebody for having an abortion. You can’t take away that choice from women because you don’t like it. Your emotions are not somebody else’s responsibility. Your emotions aren’t more important than anyone else’s bodily autonomy. You don’t have to like abortion, but you have to respect other people’s rights and that includes the right to safe, accessible, abortion.

The most shocking thing I learned from the 2017 Tony Awards...

Apparently younger Broadway fans do not know the legend of Gavin Creel????

Gavin Creel, whose voice is literally butter, who can make you cry with one well placed riff during Corner of the Sky, who basically invented being gay on Broadway?????

The only person to ever end up dating a fan he met at the stage door (like half a decade later but still).

The OG politically active Broadway Boy. 

The man who dated JGroff before he was even out of the closet.

He closed down Hair and chartered a bus and took everyone to the Equality March! He was a singer songwriter before Matt Doyle even got his first Broadway credit. 

Gavin Creel is the reason any of us are even here. HE is EVERYTHING.

  • you: why are you crying
  • me: sam vimes went from a man who looked the other way and drank to forget all the injustice in the world to a man who's such a powerful force for justice that he can stop wars before they start and still make it home in time to read his son a bedtime story
Can All Parents Do This For Me

Listen to your kids. I’m not kidding, listen to them. It’ll do you so much in the long run, because think of it like this. Your kids don’t instinctively avoid you, they don’t, I can bet all your kids when they were younger told you all about their day at school, the friends they made, people who rubbed them the wrong way et cetera. Although, when you stop listening to them, you stop getting all this. You start missing out on well, a lot. When you start using your position as a parent to do things like; Look through your child’s things just because, yell at them for little things and repeatedly tell them they have to listen because you’re the adult, make it seem as if they don’t have problems, you are killing that kid. You may not be grabbing a knife, but look at it like this, to look at your parents, the people who keep you safe and they blame everything on you, even their mistakes, you might as well have stabbed them. Cos it hurts like hell. Don’t accuse your children of things you don’t have solid proof of them doing, because at some point, they’ll go fuck it and do it because you already think they do. Don’t kill that light inside your child because ‘you’re the adult’, your kid deserves just as much respect. I don’t care if you’re a good bible fairing Christian because at some point the words that say to respect your parents stop, especially at abuse. I don’t care if you’ve never supported the LGBT cause in your life, don’t take that out on your kid because they obviously trust you enough to tell you about the inner turmoil they’re feeling. Raise your kids better than you were, because it may seem like something arrogant, but they will most likely follow in the path you take when they raise their own kids, and it becomes a cycle. A cycle of physical or emotional abuse and no one deserves that, especially not a kid. Listen to them, please, because you’ll find out a lot more about them then you think.

Listen, listen. The fact Eliot Spencer’s response to Parker being upset and asking if they could kill the guy who upset her was a shrug and, “Yeah. I mean, I could.” will never, ever not be important to me.

Not-so-friendly reminder that Rapunzel is not a weak female character but a victim of 18 years of systematic emotional abuse who ultimately learns to stand up for herself but is still very much haunted by the profound impact of the aforementioned abuse and if you still think she’s just another cookie cutter princess and not a strong woman for having to endure the effects of said abuse and learning to live her own life despite the aftermath of Gothel’s treatment of her then you can get the hell out of my living room

life ruiner otps ~ Anne and Gilbert from Anne of Green Gables

“For a moment Anne’s heart fluttered queerly and for the first time her eyes faltered under Gilbert’s gaze and a rosy flush stained the paleness of her face. It was as if a veil that had hung before her inner consciousness had been lifted, giving to her view a revelation of unsuspected feelings and realities. Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps.. perhaps… love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.”
