i don't need to be cured

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Remus Lupin & Sirius Black, Gryffindor common room, 1977

MBTI Types as Pick-Up Lines
  • INFJ: Can I follow you? Because my mom told me to follow my dreams.
  • ISFJ: When I’m older, I’ll look back at all of my crowning memories, and I’ll think of the day my children were born, the day I got married, and the day that I met you
  • ENFJ: I write your name in the sky but the clouds blow it away. I write your name in the sand but the waves wash it away. I write your name in my heart and forever it will stay.
  • ESFJ: Since we’ve been told to reduce waste these days, what you say we use these condoms in my pocket before they expire.
  • INTP: Dang girl, are you an appendix because I don't understand how you work but this feeling in my stomach makes me want to take you out.
  • ISTP: Hey boy, are you sleep? Cause I don't get nearly enough of you and it's ruining my social, emotional, and over all mental health.
  • ENTP: I was recently diagnosed with a rare disease called cryoaudiovascularia. It prohibits proper blood flow to the ears, causing them to slowly freeze and fall off, slowly spreading to the inner ear and finally to the brain. There is no known cure, except one. My ears need to be constantly warmed, and the only known material soft enough is the inner thighs of a pretty girl. So I need you to sit on my face for medical reasons.
  • ESTP: I bet I can kiss you on the lips without touching you. *kiss* Oh what a shame, it seems like I lost the bet.
  • INTJ: You look familiar, didn’t we take a class together? I could’ve sworn we had chemistry.
  • ISTJ: Most people like to watch the Superbowl cuz it only happens once a year, but I'd rather talk to you cause the chance of meeting someone like you only happens once in a lifetime.
  • ENTJ: I'm an army recruiter, and I was wondering if you wanted to come over to my place and "be all you can be."
  • ESTJ: You know how I got these guns? *points to biceps* Lifting children out of poverty.
  • INFP: I blog about you sometimes.
  • ISFP: Of all your beautiful curves, your smile is by far my favorite.
  • ENFP: Fascinating. I’ve been looking at your eyes all night long, ’cause I’ve never seen such dark eyes with so much light in them.
  • ESFP: Hi, will you help me find my lost puppy? I think he went into this cheap motel room across the street.
When non-fish friends ask me if a betta would right for them...
  • What I say: Oh, betta are very easy to keep!
  • What I mean: As fish go, betta are very easy to keep.

  • What I say: They don't need a ton of space,...
  • What I mean: 5 gallons isn't a huge tank,...

  • What I mean: ...they don't need RO water like discus, and if your ammonia ticks to one part per googleplex, they won't keel over,...
  • What I'm terrified people actually hear: *something something, water buffalo hoofprints*
  • What I say: ...and they don't have a fancy diet.
  • What I mean: ...and they don't require live food like pea puffers. In fact, a jar of high-quality pellets is all you need.
  • What I'm terrified people actually hear: ...and that 5 year old jar of goldfish flakes in your closet will be fine.
  • What I say: If you're interested, I'd love to help you shop around.
  • What I mean: Please bring me. My multiple tank syndrome is flaring up and I'm afraid this is the only cure.
  • What I'm terrified people actually hear: I'm only offering to be nice, please don't trouble me.

Diamonds & their Pearls silliness
  • Yellow Diamond: How dare that Peridot call me a clod. She should be scheduled for shattering immediately.
  • Yellow Pearl: My Diamond, you are actually booked solid. The only timeslot you have is five minutes between intimidating the Agates and dragging Blue from the zoo back to Homeworld.
  • Yellow Diamond: Ugh, I guess I'll just blow her up. Besides, I need to work on my song; the last one didn't cheer Blue up at all. I don't know why but singing "Everything's Coming up Roses" just seemed to upset her even more.
  • Blue Pearl: My Diamond, you must stop crying.

Some of the actual things my woke cousin said:

  • Reality is a projection. They don’t want us to know the truth.
  • “Matrix” is basically a documentary (+ a long rant about the movie.)
  • You need to be on a higher frequency to see the lizard people. I’m not there yet.
  • Women are rejected from politics, because they can’t keep a secret and the government is full of those.
  • I want to start a movement for people like me, those who see the truth so we can spread the word. No, it’s not a “cult”!
  • I almost converted two Jehovah’s Witnesses, but they tried to leave like five times. I feel one is gonna come back though.
  • I feel I was meant to save the humanity in some way…
  • I pity the people who will never experience what I have. I’m on a higher level that most will never achieve.
  • We were all programmed to believe the lies. I’m like a hacker, I figured out how the system works.
  • There’s no such thing as depression, it’s just you not allowing yourself to be happy.
  • Doctors are hacks, just believe you can’t get sick and you wont. I will never have an accident or any health problems, because I know nothing bad can ever happen to me.
  • Processed foods are just another way they want to control you.
  • Weed really helps you to break the illusion of reality and see beyond it. It opens your eyes, that’s why it’s illegal* (*in our country), they know it would show you the truth.
  • The sky is a hologram.
  • Talking to me is all you need to wake up. Hang out with me and I will cure your “depression”.

anonymous asked:

My boyfriend is honestly the best thing that's ever happened to me. He's super talented and intelligent & really handsome too and I go to all of his school band recitals to see him play because I'm just so proud of him. The problem is that I don't understand why he loves me back. I'm so plain & unattractive but he's always telling me the opposite, though I can't see what he sees in me. I appreciate all that he does for me but I just.... don't love myself like he loves me, and I feel guilty.

It’s okay to have low self-esteem and still be in a relationship - the advice that you need to love yourself to love someone else is well-intentioned but somewhat disingenuous - there are plenty of people who have for instance mental health issues or trouble with low self-esteem who are in happy and fulfilling relationships. 

It can be difficult to see in ourselves what others see in us, and self-esteem issues aren’t cured overnight by being in a relationship. Ultimately, I think it’s important to be mindful of the biases we have against ourselves, especially within a society with such rigorous and ruthless beauty standards and a tendency to view self-confidence and self-love as arrogant and big-headed. Most people have an inclination to underestimate how attractive or valuable they are. We’re taught from a young age to be critical of ourselves, and it’s normal to have that reflex ingrained in our thought patterns, but at the same time, other people don’t have those same biases, and it’s easier for them to see the things in us that we might not notice. How many people have you known who you think are pretty who have self-confidence issues - I bet it’s more than a few! And you know your boyfriend loves you, and if you trust him, you know he wouldn’t lie to you. 

You aren’t obligated to love yourself - you don’t have to feel guilty for not seeing yourself in the same light as he does, because your view of yourself is clouded by the things the world is always telling young people about how they should view their bodies, and training yourself to grow out of that mindset is a really difficult thing to do. But you should also trust him - he wouldn’t be with you saying those things if he didn’t genuinely believe them, and even if you can’t see them in yourself, that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. 

One thing that helps me is to try and be aware of the things I do like about my appearance. If your boyfriend compliments a particular feature of yours a lot, or there’s something you quite like about how you look, try to focus on it. If you’re in one of those moods where you’re standing in the mirror picking out faults in your appearance, try to break the cycle by focusing on the thing you like best. Going one better is trying to accentuate that feature - for instance if you like your eyes, wearing colours that accentuate the colour of your eyes, or wearing mascara/glasses that make them stand out, can give you a little confidence boost, and you leave your house in the morning feeling a little more attractive. Self-care can be as simple as wearing the jeans that you think make your butt look good, or putting on a spritz of a nice body spray/perfume, just to give you that little boost. It’s not a cure, but it’s something that’s helped me over the years, and it might be worth a try. The most important thing is to be gentle with yourself, though - be mindful of the cycles of self-deprecation it’s easy to get into and try to break them, but even if you can’t, don’t beat yourself up. Our partners almost always see us in a better light than we see ourselves, and it’s not something to be ashamed of if you can’t see yourself the same way.  

I think it’s worth talking to your boyfriend about this, and also possibly consulting someone like a councillor or a therapist if you’re able to do so to talk this through, and find some ways to help break out of the self-critical cycle that it’s really easy to fall into. 

Good luck, and I hope you feel better soon 💞

anonymous asked:

Have to disagree on Thane and the cure. I don't think his experience should be erased or a cure should restore him to his pre-Kepral's state. But in a universe where someone is literally brought back from the dead, I can't see how treatment for KS is discriminatory. He's not seen as a less than thus needing the cure to be whole; people want him better so that he can live, can have a life with his son (maybe Shepard). Is it ableist to want cures for real diseases? Or just fictional characters?

Ah, I don’t think I should be the one to answer this. I asked @kestrelsansjesses if I could tag and redirect to her, I’ll reblog her answer!

anonymous asked:

I don't think you're being fair to Emma. She was faced with a difficult choice. Her parents, who weren't in immediate danger, or the man she loves, who she thought was in danger. Of course she chose Hook. Not because she values him more than her parents but because she thought he was in danger and her parents weren't.

Her parents were in immediate danger they were about the go to eternal sleep with no cure in sight.  The sleeping curse is by definition danger.  And Emma didn’t know anything about Hook’s circumstances.

And you need to learn to hold yourself back when posts are tagged “anti-” which whatever one you are responding to was.  They’re tagged that way for people who like the character to avoid the content.

the-thumbs-up-emoji  asked:

Hey! I don't mean to bother you, but from the stuff you reblog, pretty cure looks pretty cool! But where do I start? Are there different series? Thanks!! 💕

I totally understand why Pretty Cure seems overwhelming, there are 12 different series now!! (or 14 total series!!)
Each series has a different set of characters, villians and theme: e.g. Kira Kira Precure a la Mode has a theme of sweets and imagination, while HeartCatch Precure has a theme of flowers and fashion. :)

You can literally start from ANY of the different series that takes your interest! And there is absolutely no need to watch them in order, and you can skip ones that don’t interest you. ^^

Also just to note, Pretty Cure is a set of magical girl series’ aimed at japanese girls aged around 3-10, primarily to sell toys. But like most modern cartoons, or like Sailor Moon, it has a large older fanbase as well! Just take it with a pinch of salt- the stories can be very simple and the villians are rarely threatening until later in the stories (kinda like RPGs where enemies get more intimidating as you level up haha). It’s just a simple, cute and fun show to watch.

Also this is commonly misunderstood by a lot of people, but Pretty Cure is not a ripoff of Sailor Moon. It’s made by the same company (Toei) and continues the magical girl legacy in its own way, yet also remaining loyal to the tropes people love! ^__^

Series that I would recommend to newbies would be:
- Heartcatch PreCure (often considered the best or most approachable series by fans)
- Smile PreCure (the characters are very popular. Just avoid the Netflix “Glitter Force” remake, that ruined it akin to 4kids editing)
- Princess PreCure (high quality battle scenes)
- Kira Kira Precure a la Mode (the current series. Since it’s just started, it can be fun to join in on the hype and feel involved!)

I am scared. Five of my friends told me in this month they have (clinic) depression. I can't help them, I don't know what to do. I'm quietly trying to tell them nice things, to be near them, but it's not enough. My anxiety level is also getting worse and worse everyday. What can I do? *cries*

Remind yourself that you cannot save or cure your friends. I know you want to and it’s very loving of you to want them to be happy but unfortunately this is one things humans aren’t capable of. All you need to do is ask what they want or need, and be available in case they want to take you up on any offers later. It’s not your duty to help, which sounds really cold but in reality you caring is then a blessing of sorts. Also remember none of your friends want you to break yourself down on their behalf. That can become a toxic feedback loop of stress that worsens everyone. So in summary, ask your friends what they need and what and give what you can without breaking yourself down.

Legit self care is a complicated thing. It’s hard to do stuff like clean your room or declutter or take a bath or something when you’re low on spoons BUT incorporating just something small can really help you feel just a teeny bit better. I know sometimes you feel like “well yoga etc won’t cure me” no, but some stretching and consistent breathing and self awareness can do a lot. You may not be able to shower but baby wipes and dry shampoo can help.

I say this on a low day where it’s hard for me too but yeah just think about listening to your body and what it needs. I think we can all be better at that.
