    do you think God ever gets sad like “what do you mean you don’t love yourself i worked so hard on you….”

    …why is this so uplifting

    I’m not even religious and this makes me smile.

    This. All the awards for Penelope. Here’s a fairy tale about a girl cursed at birth with a huge flaw in her genetics: the nose of a pig. Forced to grow up hidden away in her home, with a mother who scared her from ever entering the outside world, in fear of people cringing at her face and ridiculing her. She spends her whole life being told by her family that the only way to break the curse is to marry a man, for only another’s acceptance of her face would break the spell. But in the end, she runs away from her wedding, realizing that she doesn’t want to enter a loveless marriage just to break a curse she was born with. She doesn’t need a man to cure her, because she’s perfectly fine exactly the way she is. She finally accepts herself and loves herself for who she is, flaws and all. And that, my friends, is how the curse gets broken. Not by a man, not by true love. But by loving and accepting herself. Ugh, absolute perfection.

    I love this movie.

I feel that even in this day and age people feel like they don’t have the right to be mentally ill, and I just think, if you broke your foot you would get an x-ray, and put it in a plaster cast and let it heal. And then you would do exercise to get it back to full health. It’s the same if you’re mentally unwell – go and speak to someone. It’s fine. (x)

    Lorde perfectly calls out media photoshopping

    Lorde has once again shown herself to be a completely awesome feminist crusader.

    When the young singer spotted a heavily-airbrushed picture of herself floating around the Internet, she decided to take a stand for natural beauty by tweeting an unedited shot alongside it. Turns out she — horror of horrors — has zits like any other 17 year old.
