It really bothers me when girls talk shit about other girls at the gym. That skinny girl wearing the spandex pants and tank top who comes to walk the treadmill maybe doesn’t have the ability to run 5 minutes. That bigger girl who you think shouldn’t be wearing a tight top finally got the confidence to do so. That girl who wears makeup maybe has no self-esteem and thats the only way she’ll go to the gym. Regardless, what others are wearing or doing at the gym shouldnt affect why youre there. Stop putting a label on everyone because fitness is a lifestyle that should be welcoming to everyone.
I see you writing and posting things about relationships and not giving a fuck and wanting to be dead. There are very few young people that I know who lived through such terrible things that they could not bear life anymore. As a psychologist in training, I have to ask why being 13, 14, even 15 years old makes you believe that you have lived life and nothing is going right for you. You have lived only a portion of your life. They say that high school is the best years of your life, but believe me when I say this…for those of you who suffer in high school will strive in college. You WILL find your place, You WILL eventually be happy, and you WILL live your life to the fullest. Do not give up on your short life. You are not yet even adults. Let life show you that its meant to be lived.
I chose to get a tattoo for myself. Tattoos are not just something you decide to get because its a new fad or trend. If you choose to get a cross tattoo or a faith tattoo because you have been seeing them all over Pinterest, then you are a fraud; a complete and utter fool. As Johnny Depp says, “my body is my journal and my tattoos are my story”. If you are going on the internet and choosing someone else’s story, then whats the point of permanently putting something on your body. However, let me make this clear, if you are looking on the internet to design your own version of a tattoo for yourself then that is by my definition fine. If you have a clear reason for why you are putting ink permanently to your body then by all means do it. My tattoo reads “Alis Volat Propriis” it means she flies with her own wings. To me, it signifies my independence and how I have taken care of myself for most of my life. So, please, if you choose to get a tattoo, do not get it because you think its cool or the cool thing to do. Do it for yourself.
