The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day
the first step towards confidence is not being afraid to be ugly
once you get over the fear of being unattractive and stop equating beauty with other good things in life (friends, love, happiness) it’s a lot easier to love yourself unconditionally
your job is not to sit around and be pretty and easy on everyone else’s eyes
your job is to do whatever the fuck you want and look however the fuck you want while doing it
This is how I got confident
And I don’t want to eat anything because my teeth hurt and goddamn if we don’t have ice cream
The left side of my mouth hurts. Mostly on top though I have some pain around my bottom two teeth. At first if thought it was from clenching my teeth a lot. Then I panicked and thought I have some sort of gum disease. But now (I’m not sure) but I think it’s my wisdom teeth pushing against my other teeth and causing pain? Because they’re already partially out. And it starts at the last tooth and just radiates forward. Eating hurts, touching it hurts, it just hurts.
Having a bad spout of sadness and frustration. I’ve got a lot on my plate and it’s getting hard to handle so now I have to figure out what is going to work best for me and my family and go from there.
I thought it was Monday so I fixed the store up in prep for close like 30 minutes ago and then realized I’m here until 10.
Isn’t amazing how people don’t give a shit about misogyny until they can accuse muslims of it in order to justify their islamaphobia?
