“Too many young girls don’t know how to act when someone’s being inappropriate with them. They giggle or they try to brush it off. Don’t do that. Tell them to go fuck themselves - be a bitch. If someone’s being disrespectful to you, be disrespectful right back. Show them the same amount of respect that they show you.”—Wise words from my mom (via makeyoubeleive)
She tires me. She’d say she appreciates me and the friendship we have and that she’s glad I’m always there for her when nobody else is, but she’s always out of sight. And I, I know it all too well, so I never expect her to be with me when I’m in need of someone (or in need of her). But whenever she needs me I’ll come to her, I’ll be there for her, I’ll wait for her, I’ll wait and wait and wait but she’ll be out of reach again (probably because she’s found someone better to be with?) It’s fine L. Be with whoever you want to be with. Just don’t tell me I’m the only one you have and leave me hanging when I think you need me the most. You have many people who are willing to do anything to make you happy, you don’t need me as a backup friend or anything of that sort.
“Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.”—Rick Warren
Dont be mad at her.. Its really hard, my friend did the same.. Trust me, u have to help her :)
It’s hard not to be mad at her knowing she did such a thing when she out of all people should understand that it’s a completely unacceptable thing to do. We’re going to meet soon and hopefully I’ll be able to talk some sense to her.
A few months ago a friend of mine found out her bf was sleeping with someone else behind her back so she broke up with him. And now she just told me she did exactly what that girl did, sleeping with a mutual friend of ours who already has a girlfriend. I don’t know who I should be mad at, her for doing that to another girl when she was in that position before and went through so much pain herself, or him for being a douchebag and cheating on his gf like that. I just don’t know anymore.
I am so mad bc my boyfriend doesn’t take the term “gender equality” for what it really is. Every time I mention it he’d say something like: “If you really believe in gender equality then why don’t you go ahead and do this” but it’d always be something physical-related. I know he’s not taking it seriously, but I do, and I need him to understand men and women are born with physical differences and (as much as I hate to say it) and there are things regarding strength or stamina (or anything of the like) that women will fail to do better than men. So when you’re comparing men and women it’s stupid to bring up things like that to judge the two genders. It’s other things like behaviors and mindsets and manners that matter. And another important point is that gender equality doesn’t mean girls should just do anything that guys do, even if those things are stupid. For example, if it’s not ok for a guy to use violence against a girl, then there’s no way a girl should do the same thing to a guy. Yes you’re proving to the world that you can do what guys can, but you’re not proving yourself as someone who can tell apart what’s right and what’s wrong, and I personally think gender equality is all about awareness. It’s about knowing and choosing the right things to do in order to gain more respect for women, as opposed to blindly do anything the other gender do. I could go on and on about this, but I guess what I’m trying to say is 1/ you can’t compare men and women based on their physical strengths; and 2/ equality doesn’t mean girls should do anything that guys do. That is all.
“There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether they know algebra or can analyze literature.”—William Upski Wimsatt (via radicalginger)
