street of quotes

anonymous asked:

I remember watching Pewdiepie as he became a big name here in Sweden. He has since the beginning dehumanized jews, muslims, women and poc with his "jokes". Since he has gotten so much fame I hear kids today on the streets quoting him and defending him, sadly. And even worse is that it's not strange, because we have very solid antisemitic norms here. His views are perpetuated by our society and is spreading and it's terrifying.

I used to think that loving somebody meant sacrificing anything for them. I thought it meant writing them a blank cheque. I thought it meant that you would die without each other. But it turns out that death and a broken heart are not he same.

These days, I think that love is not so dramatic as all that. Maybe loving somebody means simply they bring out the best in you, and you bring out the best in them - so that together, you are always the best possible versions of yourselves.
