i just lost a lot of respect for one of my closest friends.
she didn’t know i was sitting here in starbucks, and she was saying really mean spirited things about my best friend. everybody was talking about him, but she was the ringleader. one of the other guys tried to stick up for him and got told not to do so.
after a little while of this, finally i spoke up, saying “you know i’m right behind you, right?”
she hadn’t known.
she told me to go ahead and tell him what she was saying, because she’s said it to his face and would do so again.
then she picked up her shit and moved to the other side of the store.
GOOD, you SHOULD have your tail between your legs right now. i know you don’t like him much, but one person’s distaste for another is a matter only between those two people. you don’t need to spread bad things about him in public, to his coworkers. the level of LIKE you have for a person shouldn’t affect the level of respect and courtesy you have toward them. it’s really unfair for you to gang up on him, especially when he’s not here. you’re spreading gossip, and whether it’s true or not is really irrelevant. this isn’t a way people act. this is not a nice thing to do, and i’ve immediately lost respect for you because of it.
Killed a tire tonight. I was on 395 SB just north of Edsall (that’s exit #2 - my exit is #1) when I heard a big pop. I wasn’t sure what it was. It was raining pretty hard so I was like, maybe hail or a rock or something, idk.
But then I got off the highway and that’s when it really started driving badly. I got all the way to Kevin’s house (I had to pick up my mom’s house key since he was stopping in to watch Andy over the weekend while we were all gone) and I had to have him drive me home.
Yeah, I could have called AAA, but it was pouring. Blah.
Now mom is mad at me, like, if the tire really blew (as opposed to leaking gradually) then odds are I’ve damaged the rim as well so that’s a lot more expensive and blah blah blah. We won’t really know what the damage is until tomorrow.
So I need to go back over there tomorrow and have AAA come (dad has important stuff at work tomorrow so he can’t help me) but then I’m not going to be able to drive on a donut all the way back into the city for rehearsal tomorrow, so I’m going to have to trade cars with mom.
Barf barf barf. I’m unemployed. I cannot afford this at all.
She’s lost … probably half of her body weight since then. Poor baby.
TW: eating disorder, self-injury, appearance
i’m well aware that i’m ugly. but you really don’t have to rub it in.
i know that most people don’t, can’t, understand the trauma i’ve been through because of people’s comments on my appearance. i suffered for years with an eating disorder and self-injury because my sisters (my SISTERS) and my mother (my MOTHER) called me fat and ugly. i mean, that’s not the SOLE reason, but it definitely had an impact.
i would never in a million years use your anxiety stressors against you. i understand what that pain is like.
i know that most people know pain of some sort, but many do NOT know the pain of being called names, of being made fun of, of being told that you are worth nothing because somebody doesn’t like the way you look or the way you speak.
maybe i’m weak because i can’t always just brush it off. maybe i’ve heard it too many times - i TRY to brush it off but it gets to be too much, you know?
i won’t deny that i probably deserve hatred. i’m not a good person. but if you’re going to hate me please have it be based on what i’ve done to you. not based on how i look.
Meet Jade. She killed herself three days after making this video.. Teenage suicide accounts for 31,000 suicides a year in the U.S, making it the 3rd leading cause of suicide. Worldwide, nearly one million people commit suicide every year.. more than those murdered or killed in war. Think before you say something hurtful to someone else. It may look like they’re okay, but they’re not. Words are more powerful than you think. Repost this not just for Jade, but for every teenager who is going through what she went through. You can help save a life. And wasn’t she just fucking gorgeous?
Wow. I hope things like this doesn’t happen. Please people don’t talk shit to people. It does nothing for anybody. She was so beautiful and this makes me sad that she is no longer here.
reblogging for 45145 time <3
Reblog this for Jade and every other person suffering through this. Think before you say something hurtful, because words can and do hurt.
She was pretty and her smile was sooo gorgeous…
The “she’s so pretty” comments really piss me off. Because you know what, I was this girl. However, I was not pretty. People wouldn’t look at me and say “oh she’s so beautiful, don’t bully her.” The point is: DON’T FUCKING BULLY HER. She has a mind, a heart, a soul. Regardless of what she looks like, she is a person and is deserving of love. If Jade was fat, bad acne, bad hair, would people pay any attention to this video at all? I really doubt it. Which is a fucking shame. NO child deserves to be treated this way, regardless of how they look. What if it was a boy making this video? Would you comment on how handsome his is? No, of course not. You would comment on how courageous he must be, to face this shit every day and then make a video about it. You would say that it’s sad that he lost his life over this. You wouldn’t talk about his looks at all.
Yes, this video is heartbreaking. But if you don’t have anything worthwhile to say about the problem of bullying, then don’t say anything. Reblog it without a comment. If your comment is that she’s beautiful? Yes, we know. But that has nothing to do with the content of the video. She is a little girl who is completely broken inside. Maybe you know what that’s like, maybe you don’t. But I do. And all I ever wanted was for somebody to pay attention to what I was trying to say.
Thank you, Jade.
An Arizona police officer told a citizen he didn’t need a warrant to enter his home, put a gun against his head, shot his dog, then shot and killed him. The 29 year old man was unarmed, his partner says he was never threatened, and the police are standing behind the murdering officer.
Rodriguez, eh? In Arizona? Totes a coincidence. They dont just shoot up hispanic folks all the time or nothing.
tazed him twice
shot his dog
then killed him
what in the fucking fuck
God I fucking hate cops
people don’t say ‘fuck the police’ because it’s kewl & quirky it’s because fuck the police
This story disgusts me. BUT the ‘fuck the police’ attitude of the last commenter disgusts me too. A few bad apples spoil the bunch, right? Saying “all cops are like this” is the same (in my eyes) as saying “all black people are thugs” etc. This cop was a bad cop. Not all cops are bad cops. This comment is nearly irrelevant.
