my best friend is an atheist, but whenever she is comforting me with something in my life she uses examples of God to help me because she knows it makes me feel better, and vice versa, when i comfort her i never bring up God because i respect that it’s not something that helps or works for her
i feel like this is a model of how the world should work
that is perfect

If you can’t handle me randomly blurting out song lyrics that relate to what you just said, we can’t be friends
why can’t we be friends why can’t we be frieeeendds
Have you ever come across a homeless individual and felt totally uncomfortable?
You see them and you know they are in need, but you are not sure what to do. You know that handing them money is not the best thing. But, you also see that they clearly have some needs. Their lips are chapped. They are hungry. They are thirsty. They are asking for help.
How can you help?
Here is a simple idea - blessing bags.
This was such an easy project. We are now going to keep a few “Blessing Bags” in our car so that when we do happen to see someone on the streets who is homeless, we can hand them a Blessing Bag. I first learned of these bags from my friend, Julie. I am using the picture of her bags (see above) because the ones we took were taken in horrible lighting and turned out really grainy and hard to see what is inside of them.
If you’d like to make your own Blessing Bags, this is what you would need:
Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
pack of gum
coins (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
you could also put in a warm pair of socks, and maybe a Starbucks gift card
Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.
This would be a great activity to do with some other families. Each family could bring one of the items going into the bags (ex: toothbrushes). Set up all the items around a table and walk around it with the ziplocks and fill the bags.
oh man i wanna do this
mee tooo. im bout to go to the dollar tree and rack up or a wholesale store.
All these reblogs make me so happy to see. So many amazing people on tumblr
random acts if kindness
please include a couple pairs of socks actually! Socks are among the most highly desired clothing item for homeless individuals
Instead of putting actual food items in the bag I highly, HIGHLY suggest you instead put gift cards to Starbucks, McDonalds, Dunkin’ Donuts, or any other fast food restaurant that sells coffee. Reason? 1. It’s indoors with seating, it allows the person to get out of the cold/heat for a bit while also getting something to eat or drink. 2. Coffee is always a nice hot beverage. 3. Food allergies, you don’t know if the homeless person can or can’t eat the granola or other food you’ve packed for them also, they can order good they like. I also recommend a gift card to a nearby grocery store, Target, Walmart, Kmart, etc. that way they can buy easy-to-carry good they like/are not allergic to.
Another reason to give restaurant gift cards? From my personal experience, fast food staff often know the homeless customers who come in, and treat them extra nicely. Where I worked, we often snuck extra food into their order, or gave them a free newspaper. I can’t speak for all fast food employees, but homeless folks were often some of the kindest customers that we got in, because they were just grateful for a warm place to sit for a while, and didn’t act like they were better than us who were working for minimum wage.

If you sell your body and have sex with complete random strangers, why the hell do you deserve respect? You don't respect yourself enough to not have sex with everyone. Why should I respect you and your work?
oh magic conch shell, what is wrong with a woman having sex with as many partners as she wants?
oh magic conch shell, what is wrong with a woman wanting to receive money in exchange for sex?
oh magic conch shell, could it maybe be that this bitch ass anon is threatened by women doing what they want with their bodies instead of what society has conditioned them to do?
THE MAGIC CONCH SHELL HAS SPOKEN
This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.
CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:
- do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
- go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
- if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
- look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
- the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
- works every time
"sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING
