There’s something incredibly cutting about being told that you’re “acting white.”
I don’t care if it is a joke or not, it’s incredibly hurtful.
This insult—though some might falsely consider it an observation—is usually par the course of being the token black girl in your group of friends, especially if you were a little nerdy. I mean, don’t even think about being black and enjoying sci-fi or anime or anything like that because, for some, that automatically screams I-hate-being-black. But for me, I think that some of my most alienating experiences came from people acting like I’m trying to be white because of the way I dressed.
This picture is from an article called “The Rescuing Hug”. The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby’s heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal.
life is so beautiful.
HOW can you not reblog HOW
This is so sweet.
This also has happened with babies that have been pronounced dead right after being born. Their mothers hold onto them and the warmth of their mothers brings them back to life.
I always wanted this on my blog.
I will never understand how someone could believe these lives once didn’t matter.
Making me happy right now
Everyone should have a baby elephant running across a road on their blog
IT’S SO CUTE LOOK AT IT’S LITTLE LEGS AND HOW IT’S RUNNING OMFG
I CaNT BreAth nO
This is beautiful. And on the topic of sleepovers and kids getting stuck in uncomfortable situations: My mom and I had a code, ever since my first sleepover. I would always call home to say goodnight, and if I asked “How is the cat doing?”, it meant that I wasn’t comfortable and I wanted her to pick me up. I did use this code a few times, and whenever I did, my mom came up with the excuses for me. I was never stuck at a sleepover I didn’t want to be at - and as a child with anxiety and social phobia, this was a great system.

A Pisces’ dominant nature will often get them in situations where they “butt-head” with others - usually with authority figures and family.
