Love, from its very nature, must be transitory. To seek for a secret that would render it constant, would be as wild a search as for the philosopher’s stone, or the grand panacea; and the discovery would be equally useless, or rather pernicious to mankind. The most holy band of society is friendship. It has been well said, by a shrewd satirist, “that rare as true love is, true friendship is still rarer.”

The vast coldness that cloaks the body’s surface area after a torrential rain makes the contents beneath the skin feel almost like an empty chamber of heat.

You punish yourself for being yourself.

Only wore makeup once in my life. I wanted to do it again at Relay for Life with my band— I even bought my own lipstick and eyeliner (was not as awkward as buying my first pack of condoms or hair product though): I referred to myself in third-person “she” because I told the cashier I was buying it for a friend which was a rush lol. I was super excited to do it for the show, but couldn’t bcs the guy who did it for me was unavailable… I became aware of how upset/disappointed that got me, which eventually felt really freeing. Currently searching for an excuse to do it anyway? Hopefully next show…


“When I was in high school, I was obsessed with Mary Wollstonecraft; she was one of the very first feminists ever. My friend and I were always making videos, and we made this movie called Mary Wollstonecraft and the Renaissance Rangers. It was like a Power Rangers spoof, taking all these historical characters out of context. Mary Wollstonecraft, Robespierre, and Marie Curie—they would all fight crime together. This is the kind of stuff I used to do.”
- Aubrey Plaza

How to Stop Worrying

onlinecounsellingcollege:

1. Remind yourself that worrying doesn’t stop things happening. Things will happen – or not happen –anyway.

2. Recognise that “What ifs” don’t usually help with problem solving. It’s better to use logic, and brain storm for solutions. Take control of your emotions by using rational thinking.

3. Motivate yourself by something other than worrying. Take a break and do something fun, and then go back to your work again. That positive approach will reap more benefits.  

4. Face your fears – and do the things that you worry about. The thought is often much worse than the actual thing you fear.

5. Ask yourself “What’s the worst thing that could happen?” Then, “What are the chances that it will happen? Then “Will you survive it, if it happens, in the end?” Usually, that helps to move us from an extreme and irrational way of thinking to a more realistic, and reasonable way if thinking.

6. Teach yourself a range of relaxation strategies – and then concentrate on them instead of on your different fears. Or, adopt a mindful approach – and keep your focus on “right now”.

The last time I spoke to a self-proclaimed “feminist”, they said (cis)men were stupid for not taking advantage of sex with an ex they wanted to avoid.

Wut.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, Mary Wollstonecraft
Besides, the woman who strengthens her body and exercises her mind will, by managing her family and practicing various virtues, becomes the friend, and not the humble dependent of her husband; and if she deserves his regard by possessing such substantial qualities, she will not find it necessary to conceal her affection, nor to pretend to an unnatural coldness of constitution to excite her husband’s passions. In fact, if we revert to history, we shall find that the women who have distinguished themselves have neither been the most beautiful nor the most gentle of their sex.
