Melissa. 20. This blog is as eclectic as my tastes are so don't expect me to have a theme in the things I post/reblog. I'm addicted to Grey's Anatomy, Steelers football, New Jersey Devils Hockey, Parks and Rec, pokemon, Ryan Gosling, Aubrey Plaza, blink-182, Neutral Milk Hotel, Orange is the New Black, Matt and Kim, comic books, and working out.

Things that DO NOT define your self worth

  1. Jean size
  2. Relationship status
  3. Absence or presence of a thigh gap
  4. What others think of you

Cecelia Ahern, The Book of Tomorrow (via happyasatree)

(Source: simply-quotes, via health-fit-me)

You shouldn’t try to stop everything from happening. Sometimes you’re supposed to feel awkward. Sometimes you’re supposed to be vulnerable in front of people. Sometimes it’s necessary because it’s all part of you getting to the next part of yourself.

It’s getting to that point like towards the end of high school when everyone started being super shady with each other and I was like “omg get me out of here, I have no friends anymore because everyone is done with everyone.” I have to keep reminding myself it’s about quality over quantity I guess. And hearing my sort of but not really cousin’s sister one time say “I have a new friend group every four years” because of high school then college then med school then residency was somewhat of a relief that it’s not just me. It’d just be neat to be one of those people that has a friend they’ve been close to since they were like four years old in preschool, but the closest thing I have to that is Mike in tenth grade. Not that that’s a bad thing by any means because I mean, he’s my bro forever and I love him to death. I’m just being whiny is all.

Buddhism: On Transgender People

ami-angelwings:

crowvo:

The other day I had the privilege of asking a practicing Buddhist (one who has been practicing for 30 years) for his thoughts on any subject. The others who were there all had interesting questions of their own (How do Buddhists view abortion? How much negative karma is generated from assisted suicide? What would a Buddhist do if they were forced to kill in self-defense?), and the answers provided were each logical in terms of what a Buddhist believes.

I asked: “Would Buddhists see a gender reassignment surgery as positive, or negative?” I needed to elaborate quite a bit until he understood that I was talking about FtM’s and MtF’s. As soon as he understood, he gave this answer without hesitation:

Buddhists would see this is as positive karma. It is likely that the individual had lived as the other gender in their previous life, and were so strongly attached to that body that their mind is completely disoriented in the wrong gender. By taking the hormones and performing the surgery, the mind would be at ease as it is back in familiar ground. From there, that individual would undoubtedly generate much more positive karma, as they would no longer feel horribly out of place in their own body. Without question, medical procedures that can cure dysphoria, depression, jealousy, and anxiety should be done.
