Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.

THE SCIENCE OF DEPRESSION

What exactly is going on inside of a depressed person? We look at the scientific basis for depression, and shed light on the fact that it is a disease with biological, psychological, and social implications.

We can see it in our biology, in our genes and in our actions. For those who are depressed, it’s not simply something they can ‘get over’ and ‘be more positive about’. If you know somebody who is suffering, please be compassionate and know that depression is a serious illness and requires genuine recovery/help.

TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

Nah I think that’s exactly what’s going on.

Actually this what’s going on, the KKK was passing out bombs to white anarchists abd posing as protestors so yeah that’s not you being paranoid that is legit happening, and Black folks have been taking the blame for their violence.

But if you’re gonna try to frame people the least you can do is read the fucking law in respect to that state or county. This is so blatantly stereotypical, “those Blacks, they drink beer, yeah malt liquor will do the trick.” White people so transparent.

So yea watch the white folks protesting with us cause they could be there to infiltrate and frame us.

my ultimate goal is to be at peace with myself, eliminate toxic feelings and elements and energies from my life, unlearn negative and harmful practices and thought patterns, stop checking for people that don’t check for me, create a space for myself that is nurturing for growth so that i may generate loving energy for myself and for others, nourish my spirit and balance my energies, i have big dreams and i deserve to live a life i love and let that love radiate

I looked at everyone and wondered where they came from, and who they missed, and what they were sorry for.

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

About

Don’t just take things as they are just because they sound good or because you’re accustomed to it. And surely don’t ignore and block things out simply because it’s unheard of or “crazy talk”. Always ask why. Never settle.
