I always hate it when I hear actors or musicians or people in the public eye say that they have no obligation to be any sort of a role model because it’s not like you have an obligation, but you have a choice. Why wouldn’t you choose to empower young women and use yourself as a vehicle when you have a voice to kind of inspire that? (…) It’s not a responsibility but it’s something I feel connected to. I have three sisters, I have wonderful women in my life and I just want to see girls have the best opportunities they possibly can and if I can inspire that in the tiniest way, I don’t see why I wouldn’t.
N: I was thinking about the first night at the beach house. Caught you out. E:Yes. I believe I threatened to crush your windpipe. N:Good times! That night, I offered to help you too, and you said I wasn’t a part of this. E:Clearly, I was wrong.
Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairy tales. Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares. [ insp. ]
“Ballet is so physical. The training is so difficult, and
the odds of being successful are so slim. I started feeling a bit
restricted. But I was taking an acting class in Montreal and I loved it.
I looked forward to those two hours every week.”
Absolution is the washing away of sin. The promise of rebirth. And the chance to escape the transgressions of those who came before us. The best among us will learn from the mistakes of the past, while the rest seem doomed to repeat them. And then there are those who operate on the fringes of society, unburdened by the confines of morality and conscience. A ruthless breed of monsters whose deadliest weapon is their ability to hide in plain sight. If the people I’ve come to bring justice to cannot be bound by the quest for absolution, then neither will I.
Oddly enough, I think
that everybody can relate to revenge, on some level. Everyone has wanted
to exact it, at some point, and everybody has tampered with the idea,
even if they didn’t actually go through with it.
“Trust is a difficult thing, whether it’s finding the right people to trust…Or trusting the right people will do the wrong thing. But trusting your heart…is the riskiest thing of all.In the end,the only person we can truly trust… is ourself.”
There is no clear path, no right way, no upward ladder. Just do the work with all you’ve got and trust. Stay curious. Never get jaded. Go deeper. With everything. Stamp your work. Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Don’t do it for anyone else. And always remember, “it’s a marathon and not a race”.
make me choose:argentnecklaceasked: revenge or grey’s anatomy When I was a little girl my understanding of revenge was as simple as the Sunday school proverbs it hid behind. Neat little morality slogans like, do un to others and two wrongs don’t make a right. But two wrongs can never make a right because; two wrongs can never equal each other. For the truly wronged real satisfaction can only be found in one of two places, absolute forgiveness or mortal vindication. This is not a story about forgiveness.
