things to know about life

anonymous asked:

How to be confident ?

I’m not sure I’m the best person to ask for advice on this but sometimes I think you have to pretend to feel confident until you do. I especially do this right before I go into a social situation or when giving a speech in class. I pretend that I’m confident and try to separate myself from insecurities as much as I can. With class presentations, I’ll focus on one person in the class that I feel comfortable with and pretend I’m only talking to them. Over all though, I think one of the most important things is to change the dialogue you have with yourself. Try to change the negative thoughts to positive ones. Remember that it’s okay to give yourself compliments and to be proud of who you are. Try to write down things you love about yourself and don’t dismiss the lovely things the people in your life say about you (I know they do ;-)) hope this helps!

magnus playing with his rings

💣 Before, when Damian was new to the Manor, Bruce’s bedroom door was always locked. Damian told himself he did not care. He could get in other ways. 

He didn’t know why he checked the lock every day.

if it doesn’t come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don’t do it.
unless it comes unasked out of your
heart and your mind and your mouth
and your gut,
don’t do it.
if you have to sit for hours
staring at your computer screen
or hunched over your typewriter
searching for words,
don’t do it.
if you’re doing it for money or fame,
don’t do it.
if you’re doing it because you want
women in your bed,
don’t do it.
if you have to sit there and rewrite it again and again,
don’t do it.
if it’s hard work just thinking about doing it,
don’t do it.
if you’re trying to write like somebody else,
forget about it.

if you have to wait for it to roar out of you,
then wait patiently.
if it never does roar out of you,
do something else.

if you first have to read it to your wife
or your girlfriend or your boyfriend
or your parents or to anybody at all,
you’re not ready.

don’t be like so many writers,
don’t be like so many thousands of
people who call themselves writers,
don’t be dull and boring and
pretentious, don’t be consumed with self-love.
the libraries of the world have
yawned themselves to sleep
over your kind.
don’t add to that.
don’t do it.
unless it comes out of
your soul like a rocket,
unless being still would
drive you to madness or
suicide or murder,
don’t do it.
unless the sun inside you is burning your gut,
don’t do it.

when it is truly time,
and if you have been chosen,
it will do it by itself and if it will
keep on doing it
until you die or it dies in you.
there is no other way.
and there never was.

—  Charles Bukowski, So You Want To Be A Writer?
I want you to tell me about every person you’ve ever been in love with. Tell me why you loved them and why they loved you. Tell me about a day in your life that you didn’t think you’d live through. Tell me about what the word ‘home’ means to you and tell me in a way that I’ll know your mother’s name just by the way you describe your bedroom you had when you were 8. See, I wanna know the first time you felt the weight of hate and if that day still trembles beneath your bones. Do you prefer to play in puddles of rain or dance in the bellies of snow? And if you were to build a snowman, would you rip two branches from a tree to give your snowman arms? Or would you leave your snowman armless for the sake of being harmless to the tree? And if you would, would you notice that the tree weeps for you because your snowman has no arms to hug you every time you kiss him on the cheek? Do you kiss your friends on the cheek? Do you sleep beside them when they’re sad, even if it makes your lover mad? Do you think that anger is a sincere emotion or just the timid of a fragile heart trying to beat away its pain? See, I wanna know what you think of your first name. And if you often lie awake at night and imagine your mother’s joy when she spoke it for the very first time. I want you to tell me all the ways you’ve been unkind. Tell me all the ways you’ve been cruel. See I want to know more than what you do for a living. I want to know how much of your life you spend just giving. And if you love yourself enough to also receive sometimes. I wanna know if you bleed sometimes through other peoples wounds. I want to know about you.

I feel like this should be a thing.

To all my overachievers who don’t get praise from parents and loved ones anymore because it’s just expected of you to do well: I’m proud that you passed that test, I’m happy you graduated with honors, I love that you try your hardest all the time.

I know sometimes the lack of support and encouragement from those whose opinions matter the most to you can be disheartening, but keep pushing through and being the amazing person you are.

No matter where you are, when it is, or what you’ve done to me, know that I’ll be there.
  • me: *plays a game literally all day everyday for weeks*
  • me: *realizes how much time of my life i'm wasting*
  • me: ok i'll be Productive™ after i beat the game
  • me: -finishes-
  • me: what can i play next
Friendly reminders that...
  • Rhett felt like half of something before he met Link.
  • Link was an only child who didn’t connect with his half-siblings while he had them so he chose Rhett as a brother.
  • Rhett is a gentle giant and one of the only times (if not THE only time) he got in a fight was punching someone because they were bullying Link. 
  • Rhett gets upset when he doesn’t know things about Link/Link’s life because he loves him so much and wants to be part of it.
  • They were together for pretty much every stage of life. 
  • They trust each other with their livelihoods.
  • Their kids, wives and dogs are best friends too.
  • Link considers Rhett his comedic security blanket.
  • Rhett almost turned down a role in Dirty 30 and got Link a part in it because he didn’t want Link to feel left out.
  • They’ve “Never violated each other’s trust.” - Rhett.
  • Their entire career and business are modeled after the day they met.
  • Rhett would die for Link and he felt the need to say it twice.
  • Link is more private about his affection on camera but has still said I love you multiple times because he couldn’t help himself. 
  • Rhett’s first reaction to getting a car on his 16th birthday was to immediately drive over to Link’s house and share it with him. 
  • “When Link likes something he sticks with it.” - Rhett. Link has stuck by Rhett for over three decades.
  • They care about their friendship so much that they talk about it every week and have considered going to counseling. 
  • They both accept that best friends is an understatement for what they are.

You’re welcome :)

cat using supergirl airlines (begrudgingly cause apparently cat's afraid of heights but she has no better alternative since she's shit late for a meeting or something i dunno then they have a moment and oh right that whole j'onn j'onnz thing never happened and cat knows about kara being supergirl and she takes advantage of that of course but only on the rare occasions that people don't need saving)

I kind of wanted Cas to snap at dean saying “you wanna talk about cosmic consequences?? How about: the DARKNESS. And the fact that YOU KILLED DEATH, DEAN, I don’t think you get to say anything about what I did.”

the only good thing about not knowing what you want to do with your life is that every time someone suggests a career for you that youre not interested in you can say “i wouldnt do that even if they paid me”
