if I offered you $20, would you take it?

How about if I crumpled it up?

Stepped on it?

you would probably take it even though it was crumpled and stepped on it. Do you know why?

Because it is still $20, and its worth has not changed.

The same goes for you; if you have a bad day, or if something bad happens to you, you are not worthless.

if someone crumples you up or steps on you, your worth does not change. You are still just as valuable as you were before.

How you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you.

My little sister is a really pretty girl and she gets dick pics all the time from annoying boys, so being the girl she is, she started using them as blackmail.
She now has about 30 boys doing her bidding because one stepped out of line and she got someone to print out 500 copies of the photo and mailed it to his family.

My sister is 16 and she’s running a black mail Mafia.
She’s going places.

I shouldn’t have to compromise my self-respect for the sake of your off-color humor. If you can’t deal with that, maybe we aren’t meant to be pals. I have a sense of humor, but that shit just wasn’t funny.

Rae: “I just can’t eat in front of people.”

Stacey: “Why not?”

Rae: “Well, because, if I eat unhealthy food, then people will think ‘Oh, look at that fat cow. No wonder she got to that size,’ and if I eat healthy food, then they think ‘Well, who’re you trying to kid, love? You didn’t get to that size by eating salads.’”

The fat experience in a nutshell. Bloody hell, My Mad Fat Diary is brilliant.

I once had a nurse practitioner say the exact same thing as the last gif.

They hit the nail on the head every single time.

This is the most successful gifset that has come up from the show. Look at the notes, is crazy!
It’s bittersweet moment, a triumph for this amazing show but the sad reflection of society’s double standards.

Thankful for this.

One of the most common complaints we hear from the public is that people are “sick of vegans pushing their views.” Given the world we live in, where consuming animals is so entrenched, ingrained and interwoven through our environment as to be both omnipresent and nearly invisible, do people who complain about the pushiness of vegans even realize the irony of what they are saying? https://www.facebook.com/VeganStreet — withSandra M Vazquez.
