It all boils down to this.

yeahmicah:

Most people won’t admit it, or don’t even realize it, but

caring for people takes energy out of you.

Investing your time and attention making sure somebody knows

that you love them and that you want to ensure their well-being can drain you:

  • mentally
  • emotionally
  • spiritually
  • even physically.

Love people, but take care of yourself.

Don’t burn yourself out.

This was one of my all time favorite pictures I have taken in my few years of doing photography.
The point of this picture and the people with bags over their heads is to represent what society does to genders. First off, people assume gender by body type but in this picture you could have two transgenders, one, both male, both female, or any other combination and we would still be the same… Human.
Now, women are victimized by wearing revealing clothing or not being afraid to show their bodies with pride as well as being comfortable with their sexuality, while a nearly nude male doing the exact same thing won’t be put down for showing off the body they have.
Regaurdless of what you take this message as, I just want everyone to realize that we are all the same kind and we are all unique. People have no right to judge another person by what they wear, or who they choose to be.
(For safety purposes on this picture I had taken a picture of this from my wall)

Thank you guys so much

asamisexxxual:

sometimes i wonder if the reason i dont really care if anyone dates me/marries me is because thats just how i am or because i grew up with people/society telling me that because i was fat and black so no one would ever find me attractive so i always expected to be alone

I swear only pervs, weirdos (the bad kind), and old ass men find me attractive (most of the time)

fat-ariel:

& it’s very fuckin annoying. Is it because I’m fat? Is it because I’m black and fat? Is it because of this “cake” I’m supposed to be so proud to have? Ugh!! I wish they would all just leave me alone. I’m a person not a fucking fetish and I don’t owe you shit because you decided hit on me. What? You thought I had low self esteem because I’m fat? No nigga, bye!! I had just as much right to reject you as any other woman. Fuck outta here!!

on the one hand I feel like I have to lose weight in order to attract a quality mate but on the other hand I’m just like if you’re only with me because I’m a few sizes smaller are you really the sort of person I want to be fucking with anyway?

reeniebean117:

I hate boys because they make you so sad that you just want to eat everything that’s awful for you, but then they make you feel so good you feel guilt about all the things you ate, and make you want to stop eating so you can look better for them.

justmakeitstop:

Why is most plus size clothing so fucking hideous? Jesus. I just want to look cute, too. I don’t want to look like a colorblind circus performer. “More patterns!” is not the answer, designers.
