"If white people are so privileged why is there a Black Entertainment Network and no White Entertainment Network?"
"Men don’t have privilege, there are women’s only gyms!"
"Why isn’t there a campus centre for straight/cis people!?"
SAME REASONS WHY IN MARIO KART YOU DON’T GET BLUE SHELLS OR LIGHTNING BOLTS WHEN YOU’RE ALREADY IN FIRST PLACE, ASSBAG.
One of the best, most simplified explanations that I’ve ever heard.
Anonymous asked: Can you please give some advice on how to love yourself more, how to get into that mind-set and how to remain positive in a negative environment? Thank you so much!
i think the first thing i had to do was tell myself constantly that whatever i was feeling was 100% valid and real. i also started shifting my goals from seeking happiness to seeking wholeness. sometimes when we’re feeling bad about something/ourselves we start to think something is wrong with us and that happiness is the only measurement of success, so i had to start saying “just because you’re sad doesn’t mean you aren’t good” etc etc so on and so forth. allowing yourself to feel whatever and not feel guilty (or try not to) is a big part of loving yourself. next i think is making conscious efforts to take care of yourself physically. eat better, get more sleep, try to move more. not even exersise or even with your whole body necessarily but go on a walk, window shop, write, garden, learn to knit! do things with your body and your hands that make you proud/happy. third- rid of toxic people. it’s so so important. no matter how negative your environment is, it can be made so much better if you surround yourself with people who inspire, support and genuinely make you happy. it’s also learning that if maybe you can’t find those people, it’s better to be alone. it’s not easy but building yourself up alone is better than staying within arms length of toxic people. i love myself much more than i ever have but it’s still a process and always will be, so remember that. take things day by day. have more treat yourself days, give yourself more credit, remember to stop and breathe and don’t forget to give yourself a lil pat on the back for even the seemingly tiny accomplishments of your day (like getting out of bed!!)
Dr. Sherwin Nuland, author of How We Die
How We Die was written at a time when the prevailing medical practice was to use all means available to extend the life of terminally ill patients for as long as possible, even if aggressive treatment also caused extended suffering in the final days of life. Nuland’s book made an impact on the national debate about end-of-life care, at a time when palliative care and the hospice movement were beginning to assume a bigger role in the care of terminally ill patients.nprfreshair)
