"People are going to hate you if you love yourself and people are going to hate you if you hate yourself, so why not choose the one that makes you feel good?"

A quote from Housewifeswag

I felt the need to share this quote because it was something she said in the first video I saw from her and that quote is what made me learn to love myself.

"You always deserve help. It doesn’t matter if you already made progress; it doesn’t matter if someone else has it worse; you deserve help."

"Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way."

some popular (yet fake) urban legends

foxfamilyfeatures:

  • intelligence 
  • biological sex 
  • the notion that grammar matters 
  • the notion that masculinity is valuable 
  • the notion that academic success is important 
  • the notion that it is wrong to enjoy shallow things 
  • the notion that you must produce something to matter, the idea that you must succeed somehow to have value, anything that says that just existing at all under circumstances stacked against you is “not enough” 
  • gender not being something you are allowed to experiment with or change or have fun with 
  • the notion that it is bad to ask for help

"Who taught me to suck in my stomach,
or my cheeks?
Who told me to stand with my legs apart
and my hips thrust back
to create the illusion of a gap
between my thighs?
Who made me believe that the most beautiful part of me
is my negative space?"

This is so important. 

As a person who always wants to genuinely be friends with everyone it is sometimes hard to see that there are people out there who are not good for you. It is better to have less friends who are people who truly care about you and have your back versus a lot of people who are quick to use you and drop you. It is something I still struggle with. Not only the idea that you have to let people go, but also how to go about it.

"It’s not that people can’t love you if you don’t love yourself. It’s that you won’t feel it because it’ll always seem like you don’t deserve it."

"Your mental health comes before school baby, always. If its midnight, and you have an exam the next day but your hands have been shaking for the past hour and a half and you’re not so sure you want to be alive anymore, pull out that carton of Ben and Jerry’s and afterwards, go the fuck to bed. So what if you get a 68% on the exam the next day? You took care of yourself and at the end of the day that will always come before a high test score. To hell with anyone who tells you differently."
