This is one of the most adorable comics I’ve ever read
I’ve been waiting for this to pop back up on my dashboard.. we are way too hard on ourselves.
YES, EVERYONE!! Read this! You’re wonderful!
I did an activity based on this post in class recently. I had the students tape a piece of paper to their own back, then walk around the classroom and write things they admired about their classmates on each other’s backs. Everyone had to write at least one thing, but there was no limit to how many things people could write.
In 5 minutes, every back was full, and every student had chosen to write multiple things on their classmates’ backs.
Moreover, I happened to glance in the back of one of the quietest, most reserved student’s workbook the other day (a month after the activity).
He still has his piece of paper kept there.
I almost cried.
"how are you doing at college?"
"how is that job hunting going?"
"have you got anything planned for the future?"
my ascent into adulthood
i see no lies
Two feet standing on a principle
Two hands longing for each other’s warmth
Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats
Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to go
It’s spiraling down
Biting words like a wolf howling
Hate is spitting out each other’s mouths
But we’re still sleeping like we’re lovers
Still with feet touching
Still with eyes meeting
Still our hands match
Still with hearts beating
