So my dash, uh, it did a thing. #Accurate
It bums me that for all these long years I have underestimated the immediate emotional relief provided by silently iterating two humble words,
(In which B and C talk about my crushes and B is the goofball and C is the sasspot. And this is all a way to self-reflect the shit out of any budding attraction, and get my sane back on!)
- Easy and very effective
- Requires nothing but your body
- Includes attack
Very useful to know, pass and share please.
I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this.
I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head.
Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away.
So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out.
I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot
and im asking to all of my followers who see this post in your dashboard to please press play to this video, you never know when this is gonna be useful, PLEASE DON’T IGNORE IT.
This is one of the first moves I was taught in Krav Maga, and it is one of the most effective.
It took me about a half hour to get down with practice, but once you get it, it’s an intuitive movement.
Please pass this along, it will save lives.
Please reblog this.
I just made a video of myself. It started with talking. I got up to turn off the lights. It became sniffing and voice breaking. Then tears and sobbing. I paused to read aloud to myself my last post on Tumblr. To check messages on Fb about the Pope Lick Monster (right before my bedtime. Thanks, friend!) Ignored them. Went on talking. Gradually started to smile. Got distracted. Talked some more. Sat up. Thanked the webcam, and me for the brilliant free therapy, and stopped.
It was cool. I had to neither repress the way I felt, nor share anything private with another. Slightly paranoid as I am.
Anyone ever do it?
It might sound like one of the loneliest, most useless and most desperate things to say. But sometimes, and anytime, that you find there are no friends at 3 AM. No one whose got even the small of your back. No one with a pennyworth to invest in you. No one to hold your hand and kiss you under the streetlight. Any of those things. You know there is someone you do have.
You have yourself.
Always. Stand in your corner. Pick yourself up. Travel. Fight. You have yourself. It’s something no one can take away from you. And it’s one of the truest, most fundamental and beautiful facts of life.
You are your saving grace.

I want to say : it’s okay to be nice. Heck! It’s great to be nice!
Not everyone can write symphonies of sweeping music, neither does everyone care. Not everyone can donate millions of dollars, neither does everyone want it. Not everyone has life changing things to say, nor does everyone need to hear them.
No one can be witty all the time. Or wise. Not many of us will be called to do any of these things, anyway.
But the thing is - modern culture has made it uncool to be nice. To smile readily when we can. To think before we speak, even bite our tongue, before that harsh ‘truth’ escapes us. To take that deep breath before we react and give someone the peace of our piecemeal mind. To wait for someone else to cross. To hesitate before we finally label and stack someone into a simple category. To listen.
Not huge things! No one will get into the headlines for it, nor on the breaking news. Maybe not in anyone’s memory album either.
But being nice when we can be vile, being nice when the world has been vile, that’s like being the salt of the earth! And it’s much bigger than being cool. Than being someone who can dash off cheques twice a year.
To be nice, to be kind, is like being a little light. Saving someone a stumble. Not all the time but as often as we can. And to ourselves.
So let’s put nice before cool, people. Everyone needs it.
