"I think when something hurts us it is always meant for our growth. In some cases that may be that it’s time to move away from a person or situation. In some cases it might be we need to re-examine ourselves or our relationships. Maybe it’s just about not taking things personally. Sometimes it might be all of the above. There is always a step to be taken that can bring higher peace, if you allow it. ‘Drink from the well of yourself and begin again.’ There is always a gift. Often we have to give it to ourselves. But those are the best ones."

I don’t want dad to die

Pretend you’re happy, pretend we’re fine
I guess that’s easier after all this time
Talk about someone else then look in my eyes
I know you still hold on to us inside

I’d give anything just to be with you again but it’s not the right time
And I’d give anything just to feel you on my skin
But it’s not the right time and it’ll never be the right time, will it?
It might never be the right time and that’s the hardest part of it

I keep you in my mind even though you’ve gone
Holding on to nothing’s easier than letting go
Stuck in the memory of what has been
Just please don’t love another like you loved me
Time doesn’t heal, it just leaves me asking why

And I don’t know why I feel this way
If I could, I’d change, believe me
And I know that you feel the same, is it too late for saving?
Oh, here I go again

Anonymous: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?





50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

Incase some of you still didn’t know


I actually hate how you make me feel

"It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on."
— Nicholas Sparks (via quotethat)
