Feel free to leave me something in my ask.

Pretty much why Brutal Honesty doesn’t have many friends. And There are times we have to let go of certain people, not because we don’t care, but because they don’t.

now im almost in tears because of how just… accurate this is….

DEFINITELY REBLOG

I’ve gone through so many many moments in my life with people just like this and I know exactly what this feels like.

There comes a time when you need to let go - I’ve dealt with people that I’ve invested so much time and effort trying to help them build a sense of motivation and simply want to go somewhere in life, but nothing. I’ve had to call them out and basically distance myself from them because their funk was doing nothing but bringing myself and others down. Maybe my ideas were just never working, maybe this was the real them all along and I never got that…

All I know is what this comic says: that people can only truly help themselves. Even the most empathetic person in the world can’t help someone if they simply don’t want to be helped. They’re unhappy, they clearly need help, but there is no improvement from them at all. They’re still just this bitter person, who is upset and angry. What’s worse is when they start snapping at you and blaming you for their problems because all your ideas maybe weren’t working. There comes a point to help, and a point to back away and let them live how they choose, good or bad.

It’s wrong to bring yourself down like that because you’ve done everything you could to help them and they still haven’t changed. There comes point where you’ve run out of advice or things to say. You have a life to live - it’s fine to want to be a good friend, but there comes a point where you’re investing too much time into their story and you’re letting it get to you down. Recognize that and back away.

It’s not pretty, and I only resort to Brutal Honesty when I have too, but it’s essential, especially with people who lack motivation. Some people need a strong talking-to to get them to wake the hell up, and even then it’s not enough some times.

The point is, remember that you have a life to live. You can’t shoulder someone else’s problems or live their own life form them. It’s fine to want to help someone, but sometimes the best solution, for your sake and theirs, is to just let them go. It’s not pretty, but it’s sometimes the only you really can do.

You just… can’t not want then to be together. Although he has two illegitimate children and another family and she has all this crazy history and plot around her, AND that she literally can’t go anywhere (because I’m like 99% sure that if she tries to time travel through those stones again, she’ll die, not to forget that she literally has nothing). I CAN’T.

I’m officially an old woman talking about her soaps.

earlier today i was thinking about the thousands of girls who post videos on youtube reviewing makeup and talking about their fav products and making tutorials and how no girl has ever once done it just to impress men like literally that whole community exists just for girls because it’s something that so many of us enjoy and yet men still think that we wear makeup for them

This is the current mood of my roommate: getting angry that I thanked her when she took out the trash, and then passive aggressively mentioning that we should take turns (aka, you never take it out).

I refuse to be angry/sad over someone who calls me out for thanking them.

    wait romans painted their marble sculptures

    it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot

    yep

    here’s a statue of Augustus

    image

    and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored 

    image

    i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art

    "I tried coloring it and then I ruined it"

    And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals.

    Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism.

    (The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.)

    Sorry, I keep reblogging this over and over, the last comment is unbelievable. Wow.

    We found that, upon exposure to sexist humor, men higher in sexism discriminated against women by allocating larger funding cuts to a women’s organization than they did to other organizations.

    We also found that, in the presence of sexist humor, participants believed the other participants would approve of the funding cuts to women’s organizations. We believe this shows that humorous disparagement creates the perception of a shared standard of tolerance of discrimination that may guide behavior when people believe others feel the same way.

    The research indicates that people should be aware of the prevalence of disparaging humor in popular culture, and that the guise of benign amusement or “it’s just a joke” gives it the potential to be a powerful and widespread force that can legitimize prejudice in our society

    this is why sexist humor isn’t fucking humor. it’s deepseated misogyny.
