12-year-old girl:
I don't want kids when I grow up.
Society:
You'll change your mind when you get older. You're only 12. You're too young to know what you want.
16-year-old girl:
I'm pregnant.
Society:
How could you be so stupid? Do you know anything about safe sex? You should be ashamed.
20-year-old woman:
I'm a single mother with an infant son.
Society:
You should've gone to college first. You need a stable career before you can support a child.
33-year-old woman:
I'm married and my spouse and I both have stable careers. I have two young daughters now.
Society:
You're not staying home? Who's going to take care of them? You're just going to put them in day care while you work? That's selfish of you. You can't expect to raise decent kids with a full-time job.
45-year-old woman:
I just had my first child.
Society:
Why would you have a child when you're that old? Do you realize the health risks of being pregnant at your age? When your kid is a teenager you'll be a senior citizen. That's inconsiderate of you.
60-year-old woman:
I haven't had any children.
Society:
Your life must be so unfulfilling. Is there something wrong with you? Why didn't you want kids? How strange.

I was twelve years old when I came out.

True story: 

I was told (by a priest) that I didn’t have a choice to be gay or straight; I was gay and I had a choice to be authentic about who I am or hide it, and that God was really proud of the choice I had made.

That’s literally how it should be for everyone, because that’s how God actually feels, I think.

And this, friends, is the proper Christian response to coming out. I am so glad that you had this support.

Famous Failures

I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.

"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."

I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.

WATCH IT HERE

As someone who fails regularly, I find such comfort in this! 

I like this a lot.  My college creative writing teacher refused to read the revisions I had done on my stories because he said he knew I was a B student and that wasn’t going to change. 

Stephen King’s college writing teacher didn’t think he was very good.  My college writing class thought my writing was “babyish” and “stupid fairy tales.”  The original teacher didn’t care for me, but she developed medical problems and was replaced by David Bradley, Jr., who made it plain he believed I had what it took.  I don’t do writing classes or groups anymore, but I’m still in touch with Bradley, one of the finest writers I’ve ever read.

huesosmccoy:

why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that

uh 

because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”

and not the slang word for the female genital region?

literally no one else knows this. nobody.
