It is terrifying to think that one day you will trust somebody enough to let them see you naked. You will undress and remind them that you’ve stretch marks and birth marks and scars from having chicken pox when you were little and scars from all of the other things now. You will blush thousands of shades of red, painting yourself as a rose losing its petals. And that person - that person will take it all in. And I wonder if they will reassure you. But mostly, I wonder if they will even see anything worth reassuring you about. I hope they see each freckle on your back as if it’s a star and you are the whole universe to them.
A family on a healthy diet can expect to pay $2,000 more a year for food than one having less nutritious meals, say researchers who recommend that the cost gap be closed. The research in Thursday’s issue of British Medical Journal Open reviewed 27 studies from 10 high-income countries to evaluate the price differences of foods and diet patterns.
Let the record reflect the conclusive result of empirical research spanning 27 studies from 10 countries: healthy eating is fucking expensive and people who deny this reality are annoying and full of shit.
We don’t look at people when we talk to them… And we need to build the ability to just be yourself, to just sit there and be a person — Let yourself be lonely. Stand in the way of it and let it hit you like a truck. Sadness is poetic. You’re lucky if you can live sad moments. Because when you let yourself be sad, happiness comes rushing in to meet the sadness — Profound happiness… But we’re scared to experience that sadness, so most people never feel truly sad or truly happy.
