Anonymous asked: How'd you know he doesn't like you back? Have you asked him?
Not really, I haven’t asked him straight out if he likes me, but I sense he only sees me as a friend
I have been thinking a lot about how people assume that what’s true for them must be true for other people, or that if one person can do it than everybody can do it, and how dangerous that is in terms of how we treat each other and how we view society. I see this all over the place…
Those who love running may wrongly assume that everyone will love running if they just try, or that everyone’s body feels the same as their body feels. Some people who are part of the small percentage of people who diet successfully think that everyone can be successful because they were and, that those who don’t succeed (never mind that it’s the vast, vast majority of us) must be doing it wrong even though plenty of people who do what they did have a very different result. Then there are people who think that if everyone ate like they did, then everyone would be their size.
It doesn’t help that we make role models out of people who are chosen for their ability to be statistical anomalies – we choose our actors, singers, dancers, and celebrities for their ability to meet a stereotype of beauty that is unachievable by almost everyone as our first priority, with their talent often a very distant second. Then, though we are clear that not everyone can sing, act, or dance, we suggest that everyone could look like these people if they tried hard enough.
We all have things that we are naturally good at, things that we can do with a struggle, and things that aren’t possible for us. It’s completely foolish to assume that list is the same for every person.Ragen Chastain (via internal-acceptance-movement)
Ladies I hope getting your nails done feels good because not a single man notices you got them done.
women do some things for themselves and not just for men
what a concept
lolz haven’t ever liked a boy before (sounds weird, but honestly thought I only liked girls for a good few years), but anyways now I seem to be rather obsessed with a certain boy and I cannot get over him. Like ugh I know he doesn’t like me back, I really do, but I cannot seem to not speak to him and this week has just made me more obsessed with him due to several conversations where he has just proved how kind he is and hxbvmnkfnbdsnbnm,bgfmng bn I WANT TO TURN OFF FEELINGS (or somehow make him like me back)
