how can we not love ted

Happy Birthday to French philosopher, Simone de Beauvoir! 

“Love lets us reach beyond ourselves.”

Simone de Beauvoir proposed that love is the desire to integrate with another and that it infuses our lives with meaning.  However, she was less concerned with why we love and more interested in how we can love better.  She saw that the problem with traditional romantic love is it can be so captivating that we are tempted to make it our only reason for being.  Yet, dependence on another to justify our existence easily leads to boredom and power games.  

To avoid this trap, Beauvoir advised loving authentically, which is more like a great friendship: lovers support each other in discovering themselves, reaching beyond themselves, and enriching their lives and the world, together.

But love doesn’t make sense! You can’t logic your way into or out of it. Love is totally nonsensical. But we have to keep doing it or else we’re lost, and love is dead and humanity should pack it in. Because love is the best thing we do.

18. Tracy McConnell + Ted Mosby: “ Hi, I’m Ted Mosby. In exactly 45 days from now you and I are gonna meet and we’re gonna fall in love and we’re gonna get married and we’re gonna have 2 kids and we’re gonna love them and each other so much. All that is 45 days away, but I’m here now I guess because… I want those extra 45 days with you. I want each one of them. And if I can’t have them I’ll take the 45 seconds before your boyfriend shows up and punches me in the face, because… I love you. I’m always gonna love you, til the end of my days and beyond. You’ll see.”

“Hi. I’m Ted Mosby. In exactly forty-five days from now, you and I are gonna meet. And we’re gonna fall in love. And we’re gonna get married, and… we’re gonna have two kids. And we’re gonna love them and each other so much. All of that is forty-five days away. But I’m here now, I guess, because I want those extra forty-five days. With you, I want each one of them. And if I can’t have them, I’ll take the forty-five seconds it takes before your boyfriend shows up and punches me in my face. Because… I love you. I’m always gonna love you. ‘Til the end of my days, and beyond.”

communistdeutschland  asked:

thanks for this blog, my dudes. I'm studying to become a criminologist and I love learning about murders and the psychology behind them. I 100% agree that it's fucking gross that people fetishize murderers. I'm in a Facebook group about true crime and a lot of posts are like "oh my god I can't believe how cute Ted Bundy was 💦💦😍😍😍" like please stop. it's gross and not cute.

Hey there fellow future criminologist! I’m glad you like this blog, I haven’t seen many blogs that openly speak up about these kinds of shitstains in the tcc, which was where we got the inspiration to make this blog. Sorry abouy the people in that Facebook group saying shit like that, especially since from the sounds of it you likely just wanted to learn the psychology of these people, not have people fawning over Dylann Goof or Dylan Pleb(old) or Eric Harrison (Yes, I said his last name wrong on purpose) or whoever the fuck

Just watched an amazing episode of TED Talk Life Hacks. Amy Cuddy was talking about how our body language can not only influence how other people see us, but also how we see ourselves. If you guys have @netflix it’s a must watch. 👏🏻👏🏻 #PositiveNation

Can we talk about the fact that, in season 4, Barney was trying to propose to Robin in a episode called ‘the possimpible’?
Nobody saw him..but I did, every swarkles fan saw him.
He would do anything to make her to stay.
Yes, I’m talking about Barney..not Ted.

The thing I love most about Himym is that at some point of our life we are each one of them.

- Remember when Marshall lost his father? Can you remember how much you were crying front of the TV? (You can’t deny this). Sure, one reason is because Marshall is a character to whom we got attached to, but the main reason is that we all have lost someone important in our life or will at some point of time. And you are never ready for something like that to happen, so at some point of our life we have to go through the same as Marshall.

- You can also relate to Tracy some day, you have lost someone or something of a really high importance to you and you don’t know how to continue life. You think you can only win the lottery once, metaphorically speaking. You can’t imagine getting over it and allowing yourself to be happy again. But at some point you will let go, even if that is what hurts most. Only by letting go, you can allow yourself to be happy again and one day you will have be able to eventually move on, even if you don’t believe it now.

- But at some point of your life, you are Lily. You may have given up a dream that meant the world to you when you were younger. Didn’t we all have that certain image of were we see ourselves in the future when we were young? Lily has a lot of struggles with her dream job and she had to go through a lot to end up where she wanted to be. If there was one thing she taught us, it was to never give up your dreams and to put a lot of effort into making them reality. It’s not going to get easy but it will be worth it.

- At some stage of your life, you are Barney. You are broken in some way and you have trust issues, but you try your best to keep alive some kind of façade, so that nobody could see what you are really going through. You build up walls and might tend to push people you love away, just for them not to see that maybe you aren’t the person who is always happy and confident. But we learned that it is okay to struggle. That you shouldn’t give up on people too quickly and that you sometimes have to trust someone.

- And for sure, you are Ted at least once in your life. You are looking for something, maybe even desperately. And by looking for it and trying to force it, you are only putting yourself down. You realize that you may have lost your optimism and that you are starting to believe a little less. Whatever it is you are looking for, you’ll find that some day. Just be patient and don’t waste your time chasing after something that won’t happen yet.

- Last of all, there is also a point where you are Robin. You try to be happy but are constantly looking for reasons not to be happy, just because the idea of being finally happy, scares you. You are going to realize that it is one thing to not want something and a completely other thing to be told that you can’t have it. You are going through times in which you stop believing in miracles and in which you doubt a lot of things. And what if maybe the thing that you wanted in the first place isn’t what you want later on? You can’t know where you will be in ten years and maybe it is good that way. Because there are times when you are a mess, when you stop believing and when you don’t like dealing with your emotions. You will experience a lot of things but not only bad things, you will maybe even realize that the thing you never wanted, may become the thing that eventually makes you happy.
