One of the most dangerous things about forgiveness is that it undercuts your ability to let go of your pent-up emotions. How can you acknowledge your anger against a parent whom you’ve already forgiven? Responsibility can go only one of two places: outward, onto the people who have hurt you, or inward, into yourself. Someone’s got to be responsible. So you may forgive your parents but end up hating yourself all the more in the exchange.

I also noticed that many clients rushed to forgiveness to avoid much of the painful work of therapy. They believed that by forgiving they could find a shortcut to feeling better. A handful of them “forgave,” left therapy, and wound up sinking even deeper into depression or anxiety.

Several of these clients clung to their fantasies: “All I have to do is forgive and I will be healed. I will have wonderful mental health, everybody is going to love everybody, we’ll hug a lot, and we’ll finally be happy.” Clients all too often discovered that the empty promise of forgiveness had merely set them up for bitter disappointment. Some of them experienced a rush of well-being, but it didn’t last because nothing had really changed in the way they felt or in their family interactions.

The rarest of the rare: a men’s magazine advocating hairy armpits on women.

We need more of this. Personally, I shave, but that’s just cause I don’t like the feeling of deodorant on hair.

Sometimes I’ll forget to, for a day or two, and I’ll have the teensiest amount of stubble. For some reason, I’ll feel really insecure about it.

Because society teaches us that we should.

I thought I was going to rage but then it was awesome

This is wonderful. 
I personally do not shave and have seen many harsh reactions, comments and discrimination for it, even had people tell me it was unnatural ( as ironic as that is). It is rare that you see magazines really come out and say that it is alright for a woman to have body hair, we have been so conditioned to view it as this gross “un-feminine ” thing when it is simply a personal choice…. shaving or not, you can still be feminine with body hair. The fact that women feel vulnerable and insecure when they have a small bit of body hair or skip a day of shaving is ridiculous, we should be comfortable with ourselves no matter what, and our community/friends/family should support our choices.
We have been so conditioned to try and alter/shove ourselves into this small un-realistic box of “beauty” that we are loosing the true beauty of ourselves and striving for the beauty of others perceptions.
Love yourself. 
And if you want to be hairy, dammit, be hairy. 

Hells. Yes.

"When someone leaves you,
the worst part,
isn’t the part where the earth beneath you crumple,
skies turn grey,
your bones become glass like fragile,
and your breaths are only from your lungs,
the worst part is,
when you realize,
the person who left you,
didn’t really leave,
because you have let them become you,
because despite,
the grey skies,
crumpling ground,
fragile bones,
and death like breaths,
you still want the person back,
in your life,
to stay,
and that’s the worst part,
once you start to believe that,
everything fallen apart in your life,
is to be fixed by one person,
is when you know,
you have lost yourself,
to another."

In my younger days
I thought that God
must be lonely if
he had to hover in
eternity while
he listened to
to people beg
for more stuff.

One day I rose
out of bed
and in a tired haze
I realized that
God wasn’t
there anymore.

And the nights
that followed
were filled with
self-doubt and anxiety,
and all I wished for
was a peace of mind
or a drink, and, usually - after
much debate - I ended
up with a drink."
Hey God, I’ve been knocking for a while - Julian Budani (via youshouldacceptchaos)

I’m nobody’s sweetheart.
I’m only sincere.
If you’re looking for
stability, you won’t
find it with me.
I’m constantly
off balance with my
feelings and my beliefs
and when everything begins
to clutter I throw it all
out of the window.
I’d hold on tight if I were you
because I live to leave behind
the pieces that don’t fit
so if you plan on pegging me
for a girl who is raw with
confusion,
then you’re already out of
space.

"Fall in love with someone who wants you, who waits for you. Who understands you even in the madness; someone who helps you, and guides you, someone who is your support, your hope. Fall in love with someone who talks with you after a fight. Fall in love with someone who misses you and wants to be with you. Do not fall in love only with a body or with a face; or with the idea of being in love."
"

There are days where
I sit in the rain
and the acid burns,
burns so great,
but I’m okay.

There are days where
I sit in the sun
and think hard,
so hard I grow roots,
in cement.

There are days where
I sit at home
and die,
die so many times,
my ashes rise
just in time for dinner.
