step 1: realize that the people who try and shame your body, are divided into 2 core groups… people trying to make money off your body hate (gyms/diet programs/diet foods/ etc…. at the end of the day, your self loathing, is money in their bank)
step 2: find other cool and awesome body positive people of any and all sizes, shapes, etc. Surround yourself with people who will talk to you with respect and love, not shame and judgment.
step 3: it’s a process that won’t happen overnight, so don’t panic if you feel like a fake because you want to be body positive but still have issues with how you look and feel. It takes time, but it can happen, the goal is for those bad days to be fewer and farther between, so keep working towards that
step 4: if you trip and have a super bad day, DO NOT forget that that doesn’t mean you’re starting from the bottom. You’ve already made loads of progress, so feel those shitty feels, get em out of your system, and then get back to reminding yourself that you’re a kick ass super babe and you won’t be stopped
step 5: it’s not always easy, as sometimes these people are family, who truly think they are being loving and caring, when actually what they are saying is hurtful, but if people saying body shaming things, you can choose to calmly explain why what they said wasn’t cool, even though you know they didn’t intend to hurt you, and then work from there, or, tell em to shove it, and cut that negativity right out of your life. Both are valid reactions to this.
step 6: remember those body positive friends you made earlier? if you need to talk out your feelings, or hug someone, you find one of them and hug them to pieces, because that’s what friends do when a friend feels down.
step 7: rinse and repeat, because as i said before, this is a process, it takes time, and we all trip and fall sometimes.
step 8: never ever forget that you’re a cutie patootie and no one can say otherwise because if you decide it’s true, then that’s that. it’s law. co-signed by me. the end.

To say that someone wears makeup just because they feel ugly is not true. You wear makeup because you want to and it’s a form of art and expression. Not because you feel ugly and find the need to cover up a pimple or anything. You are already beautiful without makeup. You just enhance it.
This makeup look is called “Star Dust”
Holy shit, Lifehackable posted something useful.
Except Rohypnol isn’t salty - GHB and other date rape drugs are kinda salty, but Rohypnol isn’t
Rohypnol is BITTER. If your drink is saltier, it’s GHB, if it’s bitter it’s Rohypnol.
Either way, keep safe, friends.
That was super nice of them.
And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all.
American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because “nobody helped the US in our disasters.”
Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O
It isn’t just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia:
“Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor. A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.”
So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don’t know about it.
