I don’t think people realise how hard it is to re-discover the person you were before depression or even try to remember your own personality

and if you’ve had depression since early childhood you don’t even know if you have your own personality

you didn’t have time to be a person before depression

and it’s scary having no idea who you are

so true

Pattern to Follow (2013) - Pakistani Artist AISHA KHALID

Part of Aisha Khalid’s belief in the spirituality and divinity the infinite geometric shapes can provide, Pattern to Follow seeks to create images that are relative to Islamic and Pakistani issues in a manner that doesn’t restrict the viewers to the image infront of their eyes. Instead, Aisha creates images that allow the viewers to explore for themselves the levels of spirituality these patterns and layers pave the way for them to follow.

Reject the notion that you are supposed to be at a certain place by now.

Don’t measure yourself to some colloquial set of social constructions.

the fact that women have to fake orgasms so that dudes who dont care about giving them orgasms dont have to feel bad about not giving them orgasms after making no effort to in the first place is ridiculous

a lot of the time women fake orgasms to get men off of us because no one told us we’re allowed to say “stop touching me it doesn’t feel good”

If the moon smiled, she would resemble you.
You leave the same impression
Of something beautiful, but annihilating.

Meet the Kurdish Women Fighting ISIS in Syria

Photo essay

Syria/US (2014)

[x]

According to an article in the Wall Street Journal:

“The jihadists don’t like fighting women, because if they’re killed by a female, they think they won’t go to heaven,” said one female [Kurdish] fighter.

Unfortunately, the truth of this is doubtful. But that shouldn’t diminish the fact that 7,000 volunteers have joined the Women’s Protection Unit (YPJ) to resist ISIS.

On the other hand, PKK, the Turkey-based, pro-Kurdish group they’re affiliated with is classified as a terrorist group by the US State Department. 

Girl power is very ethically complicated.

I’ve always seen this photo circulating around on my dash, but I never really knew the background story to it. Here it is:
Insane asylum, Kabul, Afghanistan, 1992
The pain of war has become too much for these men. Wrapped in blankets, they have retreated into themselves. Vulnerable and haunted by demons, they are the uncounted casualties of decades of war.
