We are in training from the time we are born to tolerate abuse. That is what being nice means. When they tease us, and chase us, and grab us, and the adults tell us it is because they like us, we are being trained to tolerate abuse. The dominance and submission training starts at a very early age and we are dying from it. Every day.
so for my art project we had to fake a death/murder. for mine I did someone who had jumped off a building. when I was laying down while the picture was being taken, 7 people came running up to me asking if I was okay and if I needed an ambulance etc. I’ve been suicidal for a very long time, and the thoughts of jumping off buildings and ending my life have gone through my mind a thousand times. But the fact that people actually stopped and came running over to see if I was alright made me see that people do care, strangers care. so many people looked and walked past, but these 7 people some how took these suicidal feelings away… weird huh? But the moral of this story is that people do care about you, even people who don’t know who you are.
Signal boosting this shit
Several years ago, I sliced up my arm with a pair of scissors, ripping through tissue and bleeding out in tiny puddles on the floor. The lacerations required nine stitches. I was 16.
Today, I am celebrating my 20th birthday and I couldn’t be happier to be alive.
My favorite quote is a beautiful lyric hidden in a debatably aggressive-sounding song called the “Castle Builders” by La Dispute. I probably wouldn’t recommend the song to most people, but I do recommend that you live by this quote. The quote insists, "We are not our failures!" and I have wrestled with the concept for as long as I have loved it. I have come to believe that it is true.
We are not characterized by the times that we fall short. We are not a failed grade or a missed opportunity or a firm hand on a razor blade. We are not defined by our misses, our losses or our shortcomings.
In all the years that I have quoted this to people, only once has anyone ever asked, “Well, then — what are we?” I like this quote because the song also answers this question. The song insists, "we are the extent to which we love."
I have found, in the years since that awful day I very narrowly avoided ending my life, that this is also true. The love you put out is returned to you. Giving freely of your heart is rewarded. The return time can be long and the journey to happiness can be hard-going, but love and kindness and positivity are always rewarded.
To all those of you who are struggling: hang in there. There is hope for you, yet. You are not your failures — you are the extent to which you love.
Miley Cyrus Treats Couple at Restaurant
Miley Cyrus paid for a couple’s meal after she disturbed them in a restaurant.
The ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer was reportedly noisy and caused a scene when she and a friend went into an upmarket eatery in New York, but after a couple complained, she immediately went over to apologize.
A witness explained to the National Enquirer: ”She went over and apologized and told the folks, ‘I’m sorry, I’ve just had too much caffeine today.’ Then she asked the couple about themselves.”
The pair were celebrating their second wedding anniversary, so generous Miley left $100 to cover their bill and posed for pictures with them.
Miley may be famous for her risqué outfits and twerking dance moves, but many people are surprised to find she is actually very down-to-earth and polite.
After she had guest appeared on U.S. TV show ‘Saturday Night Live’, a source said: ”Everyone expected Miley to show up with major attitude - but were stunned when she turned out to be a major sweetheart.
”She went out of her way to be kind to everyone - just plain old nice - posing for pictures backstage and signing autographs for the crew.”
justin bieber: pees in mop bucket
miley cyrus: apologizes and pays for dinner
yeah. everyone wants to talk about how she dresses.. but I’ve never heard anyone say she’s anything less than sweet and kind.
"When I was about 20 years old, I met an old pastor’s wife who told me that when she was young and had her first child, she didn’t believe in striking children, although spanking kids with a switch pulled from a tree was standard punishment at the time. But one day, when her son was four or five, he did something that she felt warranted a spanking–the first in his life. She told him that he would have to go outside himself and find a switch for her to hit him with.
The boy was gone a long time. And when he came back in, he was crying. He said to her, “Mama, I couldn’t find a switch, but here’s a rock that you can throw at me.”
All of a sudden the mother understood how the situation felt from the child’s point of view: that if my mother wants to hurt me, then it makes no difference what she does it with; she might as well do it with a stone.
And the mother took the boy into her lap and they both cried. Then she laid the rock on a shelf in the kitchen to remind herself forever: never violence. And that is something I think everyone should keep in mind. Because if violence begins in the nursery one can raise children into violence.”
