“I’m going to tell you what a demon once told me: It is okay to want your own happiness. It’s okay to care about yourself the most. It’s okay to do what’s healthy for YOU. When someone hits you, it’s okay to hit back and then ask them what the hell they expected. It’s okay. You are not obligated to sit there and smile and swallow every bit of shit everyone heaps on you. You are more than furniture, you’re more than window dressing, you’re not their shiny toy. You’re human, and you have the right to say “That was shitty of you”. You have a right to say “Let me feed that back to you; tell me, how does it taste?” You have a right to protest your own mistreatment and set boundaries for respectful interactions. The rest of the world doesn’t realize you have this right, and they will act offended and appalled when you exercise it, but it is yours.”—SonneillonV (via hannamona)
“Souls love. That’s what souls do. Egos don’t, but souls do. Become a soul, look around, and you’ll be amazed—all the beings around you are souls. Be one, see one.
When many people have this heart connection, then we will know that we are all one, we human beings all over the planet. We will be one. One love. And don’t leave out the animals, and trees, and clouds, and galaxies - it’s all one. It’s one energy. It comes through in individual ways, but it’s one energy.
You can call it energy, or you can call it love. I like to look at a tree and see that it’s love. Don’t you?”—Ram Dass (via awakenedvibrations)
My dad invited me out to a dinner to “mend things” like cool free food and a crummy apology
On the way home he starts talking about how being gay is so unnatural and gay people need to stay out of schools and jump off cliffs
I got out of the car and walked the rest of the way home in the rain
Do any of you want to adopt me k thanks

(I am having such a case of schadenfreude today. It would be unalloyed if their stupidity hadn’t cost good hard-working people money and damaged the US economy, and if they hadn’t also, entirely offhandedly, sat around for the guts of two weeks idly dicing with the fiscal welfare of the rest of the planet.)
I feel the same way. There are some political upsides to this, but the amount of damage done by their fucking temper tantrum is appalling.
You should remember these names. These are the people who voted to destroy the US’s credit rating and crash the global economy (which has only recently been brought back from the brink of another Great Depression, and yes, 2008 IS recent) rather than help poor and working-class people get health insurance. They voted to keep millions of government workers unpaid (thereby ruining not only them, but all the other private-sector workers who depend on that income) rather than let the first Black President’s achievement stand.
These are people who hate Obama more than they love their country. It’s not treason by the letter of the law because they didn’t do anything illegal, but it’s treason in spirit.
