Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’
Why I love her and why you should too.(via taylorswift)
Aside from the fact that I’m reblogging this from Taylor, this is so 100% true that the more I think about it, the more it pisses me off. Like I could write a book (“you could write a book on how to ruin someone’s perfect day” ok sorry my brain works like that) about i don’t know, something I strongly believe in or just something I really like and know a lot about or anything I wanted and even if it were a freaking masterpiece and people loved it, I would still be like “You like this? Really?” Because I’ve been taught that the things I say or write or do, don’t really matter. It’s outrageous and annoying and I’m tired of it.
You know what?
I’m a good person.
I’m genuinely caring towards other people. Like I care more about them than I do about myself.
I’d rather never love again if I couldn’t find someone I could love with my whole heart. I’ve got such a big heart.
I’m pretty attractive. Like, I’d fuck me.
I’m not being cocky at all.
This is confidence.
I’m sick of not feeling good enough.
I am good enough.
Anyone who doesn’t think so can suck my dick. Because I’m awesome.
do you ever just get a vibe that someone has a crush on you and then you’re not sure if they actually do or if you’re just really really self-absorbed
Some of the best alpine/woodland military camo is developed by the Swiss, but most of the rest of the world refuse to use it because it has pink and red splotches on it, making it look “unmanly.”
Honestly if you’d prefer to risk it for the sake of looking “manly” then you deserve to get shot.
"That couldn’t possibly work, Roman! Alpenflage is dumb and you’re dumb!”
DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT PLAY “WHERE’S WALDO” WITH THE SWISS
YOU WILL LOSE
But none of the drug companies will pick up the cure because it’s not seen as a profitable venture.
And the scientist who created the cure has been shot down by private investors.
Please reblog the shit out of this and see if we can’t convince those guys to be clever like, CROWD FUNDING.
Clearly our smart people have heard of Kickstarter? :P
Your problems are problems of the smart girl. Because smart teenagers see how hard place this world is to live in. They see the harshness of the world, the judgement of people, they see how impossible it is to save the world. They are people who see everything. They start to swell in misery because they understand everything and they can’t do anything to help. But at the same time they are the ones who will bring the world hope. That’s why they have to survive. That is why you have to stay strong. Because you will be one of them. You will be one of the people who save the world. You have to be alive to see that.
