So they interviewed a Kentucky player and asked him if he “felt a sense of attainment” after finishing second place in the NCAA basketball tournament. The player didn’t know what attainment meant and asked someone what it meant. Now, first of all I want to say that this man did the mature thing in asking what the word meant—instead of playing it off like he knew it and pretending. And second, I admit I didn’t know what it meant. But I do now and the word makes sense, since you are attaining something when you have a sense of attainment. Pshaw to anyone who makes fun of this young man.

Many psychiatrists are keen to tell you that you need to take their drug for the rest of your life.
Isn’t it funny how that works out for the pharmaceutical company? They have a customer for life.
I think there are many instances in mental health where an individual really only needs a drug for a specific time; a day or a month for instance—or maybe even minutes at a time.
But many psychiatrists are quick to medicate us for a lifetime. Does this help the patient, or the pharmaceutical company’s pocketbook?
There are many comparisons between mental health and physical health. You would treat a physical illness with medication—so why not your brain, they say. Well this is true in a way. But if we look at the analogy, many of our physical ailments are temporary. A broken leg for instance. Surely one stops medication for a broken leg after it heals. But in American psychiatry they treat this metaphorical broken leg for the rest of our life—long after it heals. I call foul.
The NFL is suing social rapper M.I.A. for 1.5 million dollars for sticking the middle finger up during the 2012 Super Bowl Half-Time performance where…
OK, you guys…I officially quit tumblr 3 weeks ago but came back just to make this 1 post.
its a petition for nfl to drop charges against maya, please sign and signal boost (liking without reblogging will not help anything).
the nfl is a multibillion dollar organization with a terrible record of being complacent with violence, racial hatred, lgbtphobia, misogyny etc…..if there is anything fucked up and bigotted….NFL has done it directly or indirectly and now these people are trying to bully a woman of color simply because of a middle finger (the highlight of the shitty death-by-boredom performance by the main act Madonna) and demanding a sum of 16.6 million dollars among other outrageous demands because they claim m.i.a ruined their “wholesome” image. please signal boost.
IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WITH ALOT OF FOLLOWERS WHO CAN SIGNAL BOOST THIS, PLEASE CONTACT THEM PERSONALLY AND GIVE THEM THIS LINK.
also ty for all the followers who kept this blog interesting, hope you enjoyed the stuff I tried to put together and come back to look through the archives or maybe even go through the ultimate m.i.a post and have a listen to oldie goldies but as of now I don’t intend to be active on this page anymore.
One of the worst things about social anxiety and panic attacks is the feeling of loss of control. Loss of control of your emotions and reaction to stimulus.
I have come a long way over the years and I am here to say that you can definitely take back that control for the most part if you work at it. You have to face the fear and do what you want to do anyway. You have to ask yourself what your dream is and literally take that path despite the fear that you may have.
Also, another way to get better is to change the perception and your frame of mind. This comes with practice. When you go through the same social situations over and over again you learn what works for you and what doesn’t. And that’s where confidence comes in.
And as my therapist has said, have the courage to be imperfect. A lot of people with anxiety are trying to be perfect. And that’s a great goal but we all know perfection is not possible. So, just be yourself. Be the best you you can be. And when you make a mistake let it go and learn from it.
Lastly, you must cultivate somewhat of a “I give zero fucks” mentality. I’m not saying be arrogant and uncaring—but definitely to have a swagger developed about yourself.
With practice and guts, you can go from panic to power.
Saying workers shouldn’t earn more and is bad economics is hogwash to the fullest! They’re worried It just might, maybe, put a ripple in the wealthiest of people’s pockets. And that’s probably not even the case!
Few would argue that sharing is one of the most moral, elevated, and esteemed actions. So why can’t the world share more of it’s wealth? 'Because those who work harder should earn more,' you say? Well how much monetary labor does or can the child starving in a war torn country really do? How much hard labor can a man battling cancer really accomplish? “How many roads must a man walk down Before you call him a man?” as Bob Dylan sang. Actually the previous examples could be people working very hard in life’s work. And beyond this, there are those who are toiling greatly—and are not compensated properly with the current system of money. And who should be the judge of work? Isn’t that mostly known to the very man or woman himself doing it, or dare I say God’s work? And further still, there are those who are quick to buy luxurious yachts and scores of shoes for their closet before investing in the downtrodden. Are these people really so deserving—that others should suffer at their expense? And to add to the madness, there are mansions, that sit empty, EMPTY!—because no one can afford it—or apparently no one is working that hard. Well I say damn this system—damn it straight to hell! Something must change—and indeed it is and will. Because we can only go along so long avoiding the eyes of mercy. 'There are safety nets in place,' you say? “Food stamps and welfare,” you say? Well I call bullshit, because we should have trampolines, not safety nets. We should have rocket pads for the poor and weak—so that they can become strong, and society with it.
Being able to take constructive criticism and calmly and constructively talking about a subject while disagreeing with the other person’s point of view is one of the rarest traits in humans I have seen. Being able to look at something from many different angles is a true sign of maturity and intelligence. I am weary of the man who is overly cocky in what he thinks he knows. We can be an expert, but we can always learn more.
I think there is still a better way to share the music we listen to. Sharing youtube videos and posting links is nice, but there needs to be a faster, more efficient and emotionally connective way to share music. Great business opportunity.
From nothing, to the womb, to life to…? What comes next? More consciousness? If we plot time vs. consciousness on a graph it seems to be an exponential increase of consciousness. I hope the trend continues. Or, if we do return to nothing—will we be born again? That would be like a cosine wave. Or should our graph be three dimensional?
