stand up for yourself

Some Ron Weasley thoughts

I think i know one of the reasons some people dismiss Ron Weasley’s importance: We tend to romanticize others in the need to improve ourselves or fantisize we’re someone else; whether they are the “bad” (Draco) or “nice” (Harry) guys. But there’s nothing to romanticize about Ron’s genuineness; he’s a real boy, he’s a real person, and anyhow a real hero and there are many things about us we see in him even though some of them are just ordinary. We’d rather feel identified with the rare unusual abilities.The wrong thing to do is to invalidate his skills just because they seem regular (so as ours). Personally i’ve not only seen Ron as a mirror of my own flaws and insecurities, unlike, i’ve feel like he has slowly taken me to a place where I am not just proud of my biggest moments but my little steps. He proves its okay not to fit and stand up to yourself as well as it does being quiet and unnoticed sometimes. People can be smart in their own ways, we are allowed to make mistakes and act in order to impulsiveness once in a while and still deserve to be happy, and that’s alright because what’s in the heart is what really matters; that our actions are true to ourselves and somehow lead us to whatever the goodness inside of us wants.

I really love Ronald Weasley because thanks to him i’ve been able to give myself the value i deserve even through banalities, the smallest actions can become the greatest contributions .

High school is horrifying and awkward and embarrassing and depressing but when you get out, you find yourself. You start dressing better. You stand up straighter. Your drive yourself to work. You decided when and what to eat. You plan social events. You call in sick so you can go on adventures. You drink with strangers. You make memories that you can only truly appreciate as an adult. I promise that your teen years are not gonna last forever and things are gonna get so, so good.

this message was so nice and made me so happy thank u so much for this

I came to you the other day about my ex who told me none of my friends liked me and all that bs. Yesterday she was telling me how she loved me and how she wanted a future with me but today she told me all of her feelings for me were platonic so I told her to never talk to me again because I was done being played

I’m so sorry that she put you through that :( but I’m rlly proud of you for standing up for yourself!!

A teacher wanted to teach her students about self-esteem, so she asked anyone who thought they were stupid to stand up. One kid stood up and the teacher was surprised. She didn’t think anyone would stand up so she asked him, “Why did you stand up?” He answered, “I didn’t want to leave you standing up by yourself.”
