romantic love will never heal mental illness stop thinking you waking up next to someone you’ve been in love with will solve everything including your crippling sadness because it won’t and it doesn’t this is a harsh reality some of you need to really take in and learn
do you ever read headcanons or fanfiction and you’re like “this is really cute but also very out of character”

the greatest teacher i ever had always told me that when she was younger and she and her brothers fucked up (and they did - a lot) their dad never got mad, but would just ask ‘so, what’s the plan?’
and honestly thats the beat approach to parenting ive ever heard if and i even ask myself that instead of getting upset when i fuck up or things dont turn out right and if nothing else I feel a lot better than i probably would otherwise
Pakistan has its first pro-LGBT children’s book. In February, Pakistani blogger and artist Eiynah ‘Nice Mangos’ created an illustrated blog post called “My Chacha Is Gay,” about a boy named Ahmed and his gay uncle. With the help of a crowdfunding campaign, she raised enough money to publish the post as a children’s book.
“The treatment of LGBTQ people in Pakistan is incredibly unjust, as is the treatment of most minorities, or anyone that doesn’t fit the expected mould,” Eiynah told BuzzFeed in an email. “The concept of LGBTQ rights does not exist in any large-scale mainstream way. People are isolated from family, friends and loved ones over things like this. It’s no way to live… Admittedly we are not as extreme as countries like Iran in our homophobia, but that doesn’t mean the situation is not horrendous. I’m still working on getting “My Chacha Is Gay” into Pakistan, but that is proving to be quite a challenge, not unexpectedly.”
