yo gettin married at 22 sounds a lot like leavin a party at 9:30 pm
yeah but you get to leave the party with your favorite person on the planet, and take off all of your makeup, and put on your ugly comfortable clothes and make popcorn and curl up in your bed and watch a movie, and have sex and go to sleep, idk how that sounds like a bad thing.
And everyone else just wakes up alone and hungover.
Good parties don’t start until after 10 anyway, dude.
I don’t know if I ever really understood it before, but I know now how it feels to be the person standing on a bridge, deciding whether or not to jump.
It would be easy. You just let go and fall. Before you know it, it’s over and you don’t have to hurt anymore. The water would take you in and swallow you up and you’d become just another piece of floating debris, heading to that somewhere that you’ve been looking for. The war against yourself would be over. No more battles to fight within your own mind. No more casualties of dignity. No more wondering who will win. There would just be, after all this time, the peace that you have wished for your whole life.
But you can’t let go yet. There are too many questions left unanswered, too many goodbyes left unsaid. Do your parents still have to pay the debt of college loans that you’ve left behind? Should I have asked to be cremated to save some money? Just how deep do you have to cut to bleed yourself all the way out? Could they understand that sometimes the hurt is more than all the love you feel? Will they be able to forgive me? And does I’m sorry mean anything anymore?
You secretly pray, even though you’ve lost your faith in religion and people, that just one person will notice. And if they don’t notice, you wish that someone walking by you would just smile. You look for any last reason to stay instead of making the leap. But they don’t. And it’s not because the world is full of bad people. It’s not them. You only have yourself and your irreconcilable sadness to blame. Because some people aren’t strong enough to beat it, and that’s okay.
People always say how hard it is to let go and move on. Maybe that’s true. I think other times it’s even harder to hold on. You look over your shoulder, and you see that you’re alone on the bridge. It’s just you and the night and the debilitating way you feel. You stop crying, climb to the edge, look out at the immensity of the water. All that’s left to do is jump.
So they do.
I don’t know who I am. I can almost always play any part, shed my skin and jump into someone else’s. Sometimes I do. But when I’m just me, standing in my own shoes, I can’t find the words to describe who that person is. I don’t know.

WRITTEN BY A COP: Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one’s life. In daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation… This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, & everyone you know. After reading these 9 crucial tips, forward them to someone you care about. It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do :The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!
2. Learned this from a tourist guide. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse,
DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you… Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.
RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.. The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.
DON’T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head,
and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR ,
LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE..
If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, Repeat:
DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware:look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor ,
and in the back seat.
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door.
Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women
are attempting to get into their cars. C.) Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side.. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)
7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN!
The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then,
it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked ‘for help’ into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late
and she thought it was weird.. The police told her ‘Whatever you do, DO NOT
open the door..’ The lady then said that it sounded like the baby
had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, ‘We already have a unit on the way,
whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.’ He told her that they think a serial killer
has a baby’s cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby.. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby’s cries outside their doors when they’re home alone at night.
10. Water scam! If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack.
Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors! Please pass this on
This post should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby Theory was mentioned on America ‘s Most Wanted when they profiled
the serial killer in Louisiana
I’d like you to forward this to all the women you know.
It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle..
I was going to send this to the ladies only,
but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc.,
you may want to pass it onto them, as well.
Send this to any woman you know that may need
to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it
and it’s better to be safe than sorry..
Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or
a loved one’s life.
I’m putting this to all my followers not just female…
Be safe everyone
Rachel Wiley - “10 Honest Thoughts on Being Loved by a Skinny Boy”
I know we were all joking round in 2012 saying “oh if Mitt Romney gets elected we’ll have a giant four year sleepover and all the Americans can come and live with us” but the equivalent thing has literally just happened in Australia and Tumblr barely even seems aware of it. To all my Australian followers, I just want to say I’m so sorry, I don’t know what the fuck happened, and that sleepover invitation is still open to you if things get really bad.
