Compassion and wisdom are the two wings of the spiritual life. Without one or the other there will be no liberation from suffering. No truly lasting peace. Which is our goal. A sustainable future for each individual and the world as a whole. It's time to follow your heart and do and live as you feel is right. Let's take back the reigns on our lives and live in accordance with all that is true. In love. In peace. In wisdom.
In regards to my race I am white. This is not a colorblind blog, race is integral to the discussion. Intersectional awareness is of utmost importance to the dialogue.

i just wanted to put this out there since im sure it’ll get written about differently tomorrow. 

Why for example, does a twenty-two-year-old man pursue a sixteen-year-old adolescent? Because he is stimulated by her? Obviously not. They are at completely different developmental points in life with a dramatic imbalance in their levels of knowledge and experience. He is attracted to power and seeks a partner who will look up to him with awe and allow him to lead her. Of course, he usually tells her the opposite, insisting that he wants to be with her because of how unusually mature and sophisticated she is for her age. He may even compliment her on her sexual prowess and say how much power she has over him, setting up the young victim so that she won’t recognize what is happening to her. Even without a chronological age difference, some abusive men are drawn to women who have less life experience, knowledge, or self-confidence, and who will look up to the man as a teacher or mentor.

Why Does He Do That? Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men by Lundy Bancroft (via thechocolatebrigade)

Don’t ever feel bad for making a decision that upsets other people. You are not responsible for their happiness. You are responsible for your happiness.

—Isaiah Henkel (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.

You can’t conquer people and build a country on top of them, and then feel offended that they breathe the same oxygen.

I really can’t get over what a good metaphor this is.

they could’ve just made them square but that’d probably be too gay 

but then how would the dude be in the lady’s space, expropriating her value? D:
