A Rusty Little Box

"C'est drôle la vie. Quand on est gosse, le temps n'en finit pas de se trainer, et puis du jour au lendemain on a comme ça 50 ans. Et l'enfance tout ce qui l'en reste ça tient dans une petite boite. Une petite boite rouillée."

profound girl power insights from Roseanne

“The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.”

THAT’S THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR OWNING EVERYTHING

(via queerfabulousmermaid)

this is a super important explanation to think about whenever you feel like telling someone that something isn’t racist because you don’t hate x person.

Can someone please direct me to the Tinder for mid-to-late-twenty-somethings who are currently trying to sort out their lives via sobriety and talking, whose only interests are The Simpsons, dogs, LPs, old books, Rush and wood burning? Extra credit for those sites geared toward young professionals who are still getting their work clothes from thrift stores and clothing swaps.

These are from a wonderful book called The Art Of Comforting. Check it out and learn how to be better at supporting people going through difficult things.

this is great, and in line with a bunch of reading I’ve been doing on mindfulness

This is really, really great.  We should teach this in freakin’ kindergarten.

I’m in love with this gif. Everything about it. The rain drizzling. The candle flickering. The colors. I love it.

I’m gonna make more of an effort to light candles in late afternoon when the rain sets in again

Everything on the internet is making me pine for October.  I miss big woolly socks and greyness.

Watch the whole talk here»

Almost 20 years ago, writer Andrew Solomon fell into a deep depression. In this talk from TEDxMet, he speaks eloquently and openly about his struggle with “the family secret we all share,” but that no one wants to talk about. If you are a human or know a human, you have to watch this talk, but — be warned — you might just find yourself in tears.

Oh so real.

This is all relevant for anxiety disorders as well

For anyone struggling. We’re here x

Everyone should read this, maybe especially those who have never experienced clinical depression or debilitating anxiety.

Thinking about this tonight, and wanted to reshare it.  J and I had a good talk tonight about how depressive episodes aren’t “boring,” because you don’t care enough to have anything you’d rather do— like it’s the one state where I WANT to lie on my bed, staring into space for hours.  Apathy and sadness trump boredom.
