Late last night I saw a man crossing 3rd Avenue, weighed down by two armloads of groceries. He didn’t seem to notice that cars were coming in both directions. They began honking at him. Some slammed on their brakes. I waited for the man to realize his mistake and turn around, but instead he just…
ScienceDaily (June 25, 2012) — Women with moderate to severe depression had substantial improvement in their symptoms of depression after they received treatment for their vitamin D deficiency, a new study finds.
The case report series was presented June 23 at The Endocrine Society’s 94th…
The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.
Am I the only one around here who is in a terribly depressing slump? One of those slumps where you listen to Lucky on repeat and really identify with the part that goes ,”but she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart thinking, if there’s nothing missing in my life then why do these tears come at night”? The only part I will dispute about that is that I feel as if there is a lot missing from my life. However, I think I am focusing more on what I don’t have than all the great things I do have. I am putting too much stock into things that don’t matter and in people who should not matter to me. My priorities are all kinds of screwed up and because of that I have become ridiculously pessimistic and fallen into a vortex of self-loathing, desperation, and neediness.
I think what I am going through is good though. I mean, this slump was definitely inevitable and it is making me re-examine parts of my life that I formerly ignored. I have been thinking a lot about how my actions have affected others and how I have sacrificed my own integrity for a few fleeting moments of happiness. I never let myself voluntarily be alone and now that I am forced to be alone I like a fish out of water. Even though I may be suffucating under my dissapointments I believe that when I conquer thing “thing” I am going through, I will never feel this way ever again. I think if I overcome this, especially if I can overcome it alone, then there isn’t anything else in this world that can ever kick me down to where I am right now.
Once I figure out how to pick myself up from the ruble, I think that I will reach a level of self-worth that I have never experienced before.
Like Jack Donaghy once said, “Sometimes the way back up is down.”
New research suggests that it is possible to suppress emotional autobiographical memories. The study published this month by psychologists at the University of St Andrews reveals that individuals can be trained to forget particular details associated with emotional memories.
So is this Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless or what??!!
Dedicated to all those guys, who’ve fucked more than one person, that berate women for fucking more than one person. Stop putting women on pedestals. And ladies: stop caring so much to attain the attention of men. It’s okay to crave the attention, I know I do, but don’t let it compromise you’re own beliefs and values. If you wanna downplay how many people you fucked well that is fine but don’t do it for anyone else. Do it on your own volition.
If you haven’t seen the video of Karen, who was a bus monitor for this school in NY, it is included in the link to the page. After watching it you will be affected in one way or another. Even if you do not have the funds to donate to Karen I’m sure a few kind words, via a facebook message or the site provided, would do more for her spirit than any kind of monetary fund. If anything restores my faith in humanity it is a community coming together to show a stranger that kindness still exists.
The title of this post leads to the link. I’m not sure if the tumblr world already knew that but I did not.
Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about treating other people nicely?!!! I don’t know if I just feel frustrated with people right now because I am on the receiving end of the bullshit but I am seriously SO SICK of how I let dumb asses treat me!! Like these people must be IDIOTS for believing that they can just ignore me and say whatever unwarranted shit they want to say to me and believe that I will just take it. They are horrible amounts of DEMENTED if they believe I will allow them my respect after they treat me like that annoying fly in the room.
You know what though, it’s hard for idiots to have a clear perception of reality I guess. So me being the sane person that I am…I will take the blame for allowing these dip shits into my life. I will take the blame for letting them get away with their poorly thought out and disrespectful actions.
Lesson learned: if you think dense/opportunistic people assholes are ever going to have regard for the well being of you or anyone else…YOU’RE GONNA HAVE A BAD TIME.
