“Too many young girls don’t know how to act when someone’s being inappropriate with them. They giggle or they try to brush it off. Don’t do that. Tell them to go fuck themselves - be a bitch. If someone’s being disrespectful to you, be disrespectful right back. Show them the same amount of respect that they show you.”—(via keep-that-pussy-wet)
“Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance.”—(via nicolezai)
“Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process.”—Hillary Clinton on how to handle criticism & other advice for young women, The Cut (via thatkindofwoman)
Hey, I was just wondering how your mum was? (I was the one who sent you a message a few months back telling you to take time off blogging when your mum was ill) I'm not being a creep, I just thought about her for some reason and wondered how she was, hope she is okay and I hope you are too :) x
Wow, I’m surprised that people still remember, I do remember your message, infant I acted on it and delegated my blog work until my mother finished her treatment. But wow, thank you for remembering. 😊
she’s recovering very well. I saved as much money as I could last year and surprised her with a holiday back home to Trinidad after her treatment was over. This actually kept her spirits up during chemo.
I can’t complain, life is slowly picking back up. I didn’t think anything could bring us closer than we already are, but cancer did. It made me appreciate time and taught me that life is only as good as the people in it.
I now spend more time listening to her stories, enjoying her company and daydreaming while she’s talking, thinking to myself how lucky I am to still have her in my life.
My mum is doing well thank you. I just continue to pray to God that her health maintains.
