"When you have a chronic illness, sometimes you’re so sick that you feel like you just can’t take it anymore. You just feel like giving up. But when you have a chronic illness, giving up isn’t really an option… It’s not like you can just stop being sick. It doesn’t work that way. So you just have to keep fighting. It’s what you’re always doing, all day long, every single day. When you’re chronically ill, every day is a struggle and a fight. It’s a struggle just to get through each day. But every day you’re also getting stronger. Even if you don’t realize it. Even when you feel like you’re the weakest person on the planet. But you’re not. In fact, you’re really one of the strongest. Most people wouldn’t be able to handle going through a fraction of all that you have to go through everyday just to survive. So on the days when you feel like you just spent the whole day being sick and weren’t really able to accomplish much - know that just getting through that day was a HUGE accomplishment. And know that you are strong. Very strong. Stronger than you can ever even imagine. Because you didn’t give up. You just keep fighting, day in and day out, no matter how hard things get. And that’s definitely an accomplishment. That’s definitely something to be proud of. You are strong. And you can get through this. You WILL get through this!"
"When you are attracted to people, it’s because of the details. Their kindness. Their eyes. The fact that they can get you to laugh when you need it the most."
Who wants me to send you a card?
Where I live, it’s cold and the sun goes into hiding making everyone’s mood plummet. Then you add the holidays or just seeing others be together, and it can get very lonely.
Getting a card in the mail has always put a smile on my face. I know someone thought of me and I don’t feel as lonely.
I don’t intend on this being a card exchange, just me sending cards to people who want them.
If you want me to send you a card, message me with your address. If you want a specific holiday, please include that because the default cards I’ll be sending out will be” thinking of you” cards that I’ve tinkered with so they aren’t just a random card from a store.
Reblog if you think your followers might be interested :)

Home Alone 3: Simplicity Works
You know why women often say “nothing’s wrong” when something is definitely bothering them
It’s because men have been belittling, minimizing and mocking our emotions forever
And we are socialized to be as passive and undemanding and selfless as possible, and not to run any risk of bothering or angering a man lest he abandon or hurt us
It’s not passive aggression, it is fear
oh my god
and then its so highly regarded when men show emotions

In Bnei Brak, an Israeli city whose population is mostly ultra-orthodox, there is a disturbing phenomenon - advertising signs with images of women on them are being ripped by ultra-orthodox men who believes that women should only be shown dressed modestly enough. The sleeves must cover the elbows, skirts must hide the knees and hair should be hidden as well.
The Israeli advertising agency “Twisted" decided to use that habit, and created a poster that hides another poster under it. 24 hours after the sign was hanged, the picture of the model was ripped and the message was exposed:
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
oh that’s brilliant.
