“It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther… . And then one fine morning—
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
Loving you is like a battle and we both end up with scars.
What’s Wrong With Fat Shaming from Xojane
Fat-shaming is a specific variety of body-shaming. It is not the only kind of shaming that takes place, but it is one of the more common ones. Lots of folks think fat-shaming is perfectly acceptable. More than that, lots of folks think fat-shaming is actually a good thing, because with shame as a motivator, perhaps those darn fat people will stop being so fat.
It doesn’t work, though — shame is not a catalyst for change; it is a paralytic. Anyone who has ever carried extreme personal shame knows this. Shame doesn’t make you stronger, nor does it help you to grow, or to be healthy, or to be sane. It keeps you in one place, very, very still.
The state of our prisons and jails today.
A grave injustice is being done to the people of this nation - esp. those most vulnerable.
California could serve as the poster child for what happens when slashes to mental health care funding — particularly through cuts to public insurance programs such as Medicaid — meets a sprawling industrial prison complex bursting at the seams. Patients become prisoners, reminiscent of a time when ignorance regarding mental illnesses perpetuated a system of asylums and involuntary commitment that public health advocates spent decades fighting, as it treated mentally ill Americans as dangerous vagrants to be locked up rather than patients to be cured.

I can love you past your pain.
Do you think that we could find a place where we can meet, not in silence and not in sound?
