"Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy."
This is the greatest thing I have ever seen. People do not understand that mental illnesses, such as depression, are actual chemical imbalances in your body. They are not brought on by choice. My dad was diagnosed with depression. He was so ashamed of it that he hid it from me and my brothers. A month later, he killed himself. The stigma that comes with mental illness made my Dad embarrassed to talk to his own kids about this problem because he felt like less of a man.
Erase the stigma. The more we talk about mental illness, the less likely it will end in suicide.
I can’t even express how much i love this, and I wish everyone at my school could see this. because I am so tired of being judged for something i can’t control.
this is simply amazing.

a muslim woman protesting the burka. in some countries, muslim women are raped and beaten for showing even their noses and mouths. in some places, they get their hands chopped off for showing their wrists, or looking at a man.
This is amazing, this is beyond amazing.
This is likely the only time my blog will have nudity on it but I feel this is too important not to have on my blog. The female body is something beautiful. Harming a woman for the reasons listed above is beyond cruel and oppressive. It should never happen and I’m glad people are taking a stand against it.
