i was finally accepted

anonymous asked:

Hey Mom. I adopted a dog a few weeks ago and he's finally accepted me to the point where he's comfortable cuddling with me!! It's great but he also likes to squish me, which is not so great. Long story short, my new doggo trusts me!!

Oh my god yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss :D <3 <3 <3

I finally accepted, half heartedly, that it will never be the same. You and me, we lost that old spark, a utopia I felt.
Deep down I know it’s the truth, but my stubborn heart is too scared to let you go. But this time I know things have changed for real because my words are feeling a different set of emotions, not the heart breaking pain anymore, but somewhere between lost and hoping for a future.

“My parents are old school. We’re from Bolivia. The daughter isn’t supposed to leave the house until she’s married. But I left when I was nineteen because I couldn’t take the constant fighting about how to live my life. It’s not that I wanted to be promiscuous. I just wanted to explore New York and have black friends and white friends and gay friends. I’ve had a bad relationship with my parents ever since. I ended up marrying a Dominican boy from Corona. He’s been nothing but good to me. But they’ve never accepted him. We got married at City Hall. I’m thirty-three now. We just had our first child. So I thought things would finally get better with my parents. I thought we could relate as equals now that I have my own child. Maybe they’d finally accept my choices. But they’re still the same. My mother helps babysit my child while I’m at work. She does everything her own way. She criticizes all my decisions. When I insist on raising my child a certain way, she gets upset. She starts crying and reminds me that I left the house when I was nineteen. Then my father calls and yells at me for upsetting my mother. It breaks my heart. But I’m realizing that a good relationship with my parents will always require doing exactly what they say.”

  • Yurio: I can't win against JJ or Yuuri otherwise.
  • Me: OH MY G O D, he just called him "Yuuri!" *wipes tears of joy*
  • JJ: Oh my god, he just called me JJ!!!

If you don’t like what you see then unfollow me, I’ve become so confident within my own skin after being bullied and ashamed of my body and myself for years, I’ve finally learn to accept myself for who I am and I’m changing for myself. I will not put up with people shaming me for my looks or my weight. I am me and I’m a great person. I have extra weight I carry around but I’m still me and nothing’s going to change that. I’ve received many messages putting me down and shaming me because I’m “fat” I’m here to say you’re not going to bring me down and thank you for making me that much stronger ❤️

9-year-old becomes first openly transgender Boy Scout
“I am accepted, and I’m actually in Boy Scouts," Joe Maldonado said.

The Boy Scouts of America recently lifted its ban on transgender scouts, and 9-year-old Joe Maldonado has a lot to celebrate. He joined a scout pack a week after the ban was lifted, making him the first openly trans Boy Scout.

Joe tried to join the Boy Scouts last year, but he wasn’t allowed because parents complained about having a trans boy in the pack. 

The leader of Joe’s pack, Kyle Hacker, helped Joe put on his uniform and kerchief and taught him the Cub Scout salute and Scout oath at his first meeting.

“This means you’re the same as Scouts all over the world,” Hacker told Joe, according to The Record.

For Joe, the event was especially meaningful because it showed he was finally being accepted.

“This is fun; I’m so proud,” he told The Record. “I am accepted, and I’m actually in Boy Scouts.”

“This means you’re the same as Scouts all over the world.” Crying. Go, Joe.

Alt!Carmilla losing Laura again.

So much awful shit has happened this year, whether personally or globally, and after a while it starts to seem like it cancels out the good stuff. Everyone should reblog this with at least two good things that happened to them.

I implore the loving and awesome TJLC community to participate in this. I know we’re all stoked/terrified for the new series, but maybe we should take a moment. I’ll tag a few people to get it all going. @shag-me-senseless-watson @inevitably-johnlocked @currently-in-my-mind-palace @addignisherlock @love-in-mind-palace @sherlockprettydamngayholmes @beegrumpy @i-detect-your-bullshit @hudders-and-hiddles @tjlcisthenewsexy @griffxtrn

My good things:

1. I became an open and constant member of this tightly-knit community. I made some extremely amazing friends here on this insane garbage website, and I don’t want to ever give you up.

2. I got medical help for my anxiety. Finally.

3. My writing was accepted for presentation at an international English conference next spring.

Tag more people! Spread the optimism so we know that 2017 is a fresh start and a new beginning that we can turn around from this horrible, no good, very bad year.
