I blog about pretty much any fantasy stuff (including, but not limited to, dr who, game of thrones, harry potter, & world of warcraft); sherlock and similar dramas; mental health; funny stuff; diabetes (i am type 1 diabetic); and basically anything that i find interesting/escapist.
(Trigger warning: some content may be upsetting for those with issues like depression/eating disorders/self harm/suicidal feelings.)
↳ 21 October 1805 AD - A British fleet under Admiral Lord Nelson defeats a combined French and Spanish fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar. Nelson is shot in the shoulder and chest by a French sniper, he is taken below and dies about 30 minutes before the end of the battle.
whenever i’m leaving a conversation i say “bi” to remind and tell people i am bisexual. for some reason this has not been working very well and most people think i’m straight despite my reminders. however, they do sometimes praise me and say “good bi” in response.
One of the greatest gifts we can give our children is the model of what to expect and how to behave when they are adults. They do see how we react to situations and often copy them. Sometimes, they know no different so patterns repeat themselves.
If we want our children to be valued, loved and respected by the other adults in their lives, we have to show them that they are worth love and respect, that it is their right just as much as anyone else. We show them by demonstrating assertiveness for ourselves.
Set your expectations high and enforce your boundaries. There is no need to shout, swear, sulk or blame. We should just say what we need and if other people don’t want to or can’t treat us well, we walk away from them. There is no need to live like this. It just makes everyone miserable. Including the children.
There is a lot of unnecessary angst about staying in a relationship. Why? Two people should be together because they want to be. If they don’t, they are free to leave. The children will be much happier with adults who are happy and fulfilled than living in an atmosphere of resentment and hostility. Who wants that for their children? Give them a home with genuine affection, warmth, empathy and laughter and they will bloom. That is all they need."
