sometimes you just need to think about the amazing things in life. do not dwell on things that may bring you down or cause you stress. but engulf in the good. listen to more old music. listen to more new music. go out for a walk. make some art. eat new food. make new friends. don't forget to text old ones. talk to your parents. clean your room. drink some more water. make yourself a calender. look up some questions online, and answer them about yourself (write them down). document your feelings. don't forget about what you have. go outside. be in nature. love what life has to offer.
this is about unity. we are not protesting democracy we are advocating for progress and equality. the most amazing people came together last saturday to the march on washington, and it was truly a day that will go down in history
I read a blog post yesterday by a female who basically wrote about how she is a feminist but she is sick of them. I think I lost intelligence reading it. If you're confused on what feminism is then let me explain it to you. It's as simple as this.
If someone believes and preaches that women are superior, and is objectifying men, then she or he is NOT a feminist. PERIOD. They are not an extreme feminist, nor a feminist at all. A radical feminist is what they are defined as. (just to make it clear I do not agree with the ideals following radical feminists).
Feminism is defined as the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of the equality of sexes. It doesn't mean superiority or basically anything else.
So girls, please don't go around trying to say that you are sick of feminists because if you are then I'm assuming you don't want equal rights? Let us achieve equality before you go bashing amazing strong women who are fighting for you. And please don't say we have it pretty good because you're wrong, we still have a long way to go. Once the wage gap is gone, then we can talk.
i was doing so well... i was so SO elated. i even wrote a blog post on why i was so happy, and i made a youtube video about it. but alas, all good things must come to an end. it's my anxiety. ever since i started taking supplements for it and i got a prescription for my panic attacks things have been great, more than great in fact, but the past two days is where it all went downhill. i don't want to get into specifics but i was hurt. not directly, it was more of an indirect thing that was somewhat my fault for letting myself become attached. whatever. its over. but i can't help but feel a little upset. it's my dopamine addiction. i need to stop relying so heavily on technology and my phone notifications to pull me back into hapiness, i need my own ways. so in this moment I'm thinking about deleting snapchat again, i cannot be so consumed by other people answering me. it makes me frustrated.
listening to music helps, so does finding new music. youtube doesn't really, not sure why it just sometimes makes me feel gross for wasting my time instead of being productive. however tricking myself into the fact that finding new music is a form of brain food works pretty well. if you're still reading this congradulations. you have surpassed my messy thoughts. and now i want to be clear. am i in a little funk right now? yes. will i let myself be consumed by this and feel sorry for myself? NO. NO NO NO. so there.
but i want to start using my blog more to rant, I'm too restricted by the fact that this blog is very public and sometime next year colleges will be looking at this. but so what. if anything GREAT, now they can see how complex of a person i am and really all I'm trying to do is figure out how i need to live on this early to my absolute fullest extent. I also feel much better now if anyone was wondering, the therapeutic hum that writing brings to my life is extensive.
hopefully, I'm in a better mood next time!
where happiness goes to die. there are two different sides of the spectrum, the happy and the glum. but when i am happy, tumblr usually makes me feel insignificant and that i live a gross life. which is not healthy, maybe i should go on tumblr less
Before my situational depression, I had never understood happiness. I never appreciated being loved or understood. Or the simple pleasures of having someone listen to you. The gift of kindness and the habit of compassion is what drives this world forward, but when I was in that dark place I never understood that. Biologically humans are not programmed to be happy all the time. People become stressed, angry and upset. But the people that are the most content don't let external forces interfear with their mental stability. Everyone has a purpose and if you find your purpose and your meaning on this earth then ultimately you will be happy. Even on the worst days, you have a reason to be here, you have a role that needs to be fulfilled. So that's what I remember, that I have meaning, so stay positive and know you are needed. That is what will keep you grounded.
