"The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness."
- Daniell Koepke (via psych-facts)
"You have received one new email
Congratulations!
You are cordially invited to scream at the top of your lungs
Starting 3 minutes past whenever you read this first
You are invited to put down everyone that has ever hurt you
You are invited to take up the whole width of the sidewalk
Don’t move out of the way
Don’t answer the questions they throw at you like knives
You are invited.
To show little boys and girls everywhere that a closet is not a home
Show children who don’t feel like boys or girls that a closet is not a home
You are invited
To dust off that book of you with pigtails and blonde hair
You don’t need that where you’re going.
None of that matters
Because
You are invited to be there
To listen
To hear them when they scream and cry
At twelve years old and they want to kiss a girl as much as the other girls want to kiss boys
Chase them around and tug at their hair
You are invited hear them
A little girl feels more comfortable in her brothers clothes
And waits until everyone is asleep
Tiptoeing to the mirror to flatten out her chest
This is not a life that a little girl should be living
Four years later he tells his parents he is not a little girl
And his parents tell him that he is not their child
He will always say the hardest transition was the one from the closet to the street
Pick him up and let him know
He is invited.
Grab that person in the back of the class with purple hair
Who wears black every day
And cringes when someone calls them a boy
Tell them that you don’t need to feel one way or another
And where you are going
It doesn’t matter
Pick out a black suit
Because they are invited
Tell the sixteen year old girl
Who fell in love with a boy
Who got her heart broken by a boy
And thrust it at a girl to be stitched up by
Tell her that she is no slut for liking both of them
Tell her that she is invited.
This party starts now
There are so many hearts that have been broken
Crushed by the weight of a multicolored flag
Resting in a casket
Did you know that one in twelve trans people will get murdered
The weight of the other eleven
Sighing in relief because they have another day
As selfish as it sounds
If you’re not what they think is normal
You really have to wish for another day.
Six year old children who don’t know what being gay means
Who don’t know that your gender is not what’s in your pants
You are invited to teach them
And the ones who are lucky enough to be picked
The gender they were assigned
Liking the opposite sex
You don’t have to beat sense into them like they tried with you
You have to tell them that they
Are invited
They have to carry the weight of this fucking flag
They have to know that one in twelve trans people will be murdered
That their best friends mothers can’t get married
But they can attend the funeral of the first gay boy they met in high school
They have to tell their brothers and sisters that being valid comes within yourself
No matter if you like boys
Or girls
Or both
Or neither
Because its not that hard to comprehend
Not everyone is sexually attracted to people
You have to know these things before you receive an invitation
Its not about being tolerant
Its about being accepting
Its about being loving
Its about watching two women get married
Watching as they both cry because neither of their parents showed up
This is the price we pay
So
Take a seat
Because you are invited."
- you are invited to give children a better life than what was given to you. hope to see you there. (via kieremon)

First we open to LITTLE BABY SELENA GOMEZ

THE PRESIDENT IS GEORGE CLOONEY?

Later we see Juni’s grandpa who is KHAN??

image

who spends the whole movie chasing a butterfly

image

THE VILLAIN IS SYLVESTER STALLONE

image

WHO GETS VILLAIN ADVICE FROM THREE OTHER SYLVESTER STALLONES

image

ELIJAH WOOD SHOWS UP

ONLY TO DIE IN THE NEXT SCENE

Then we find out that the president was actually the villain the whole time which makes ZERO SENSE but leads to this glorious George Clooney Sylvester Stallone impression

Then we get Antonio Benderez doing this?

image

image

AND THEIR UNCLE WHO IS STILL MACHETE image

AND THEN STEVE BUSCEMI SHOWS UP ON A FLYING PIG FOR NO REASON
