Some days I can’t even start to cope with how terribly unwelcoming Tumblr is for Christians. Every single choice people make is approved here, everyone is told to be themselves and to believe in whatever they want, but if they believe in Jesus Christ, they are suddenly the most evil.

Guys, this…

"Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate."

Rick Warren (via stability)

Harry Harlow, “The Nature of Love,” 1958
In his most famous study, Harry Harlow raised rhesus monkeys in an environment with two surrogate “mothers,” (both inanimate doll-like figures).  One was made of wire and provided milk, and the other was made of cloth, but provided no sustenance.  Overwhelmingly, the monkeys chose to spend time with the cloth monkey, leaving it only when they needed milk.  
Harlow also decided to test which “mother” they would prefer when scared, one that provides sustenance or one that provides only contact comfort.  He placed a loud toy in the cage with the monkeys to frighten them.  All of the monkeys ran to the cloth mother, and were calmed by its touch enough to feel confident enough to approach the toy.  
Later in life, when the rhesus monkeys had grown, they were totally unable to behave normally around their peers and either ignored or abused their own children.  Their immune systems were compromised and they behaved erratically, circling in their cages, self-mutilating, and staring blankly.  
This study and similar ones that he conducted fundamentally changed the way nurseries and orphanages were run in America.  Before the study, psychologists did not understand how important physical touch was to infants’ development and advised against touching infants too much.  Psychologists now know how detrimental this can be to a child’s development and recommend skin-to-skin contact with the infant as much as possible in early development.

1. Get into the habit of being an early riser. We can all benefit from having a little bit of extra time in the morning. It reduces stress, helps to prevent you from forgetting things, and stops that crazy morning rush.

2. Deliberately decide to tune out distractions. Turn off the TV, social…

edonaghey:

"There is a fundamental concern that the content of such magazines normalises the treatment of women as sexual objects. We are not killjoys or prudes who think that there should be no sexual information and media for young people. But are teenage boys and young men best prepared for fulfilling love and sex when they normalise views about women that are disturbingly close to those mirrored in the language of sexual offenders?" -Dr. Peter Hegarty

I don’t care about the wealthy lifestyle I’ve grown up in. It doesn’t make their behavior okay. They’ve still hurt me and won’t own up to it.
<p>Also I constantly switch between wanting to talk to them and blaming myself for being a whiney kid.</p>
<p>I could be wrong but thats kind of what victims of abuse do. They blame themselves for getting hurt by their abusers.

<p>My parents are emotionally dismissive, make fun of my interests, and repeatedly turn behavioral correction into just insulting me. They get mad at me if I ask questions and I feel like trash when I’m around them.

<p>If they want me to respect them thats fine, if they want me to follow their rules thats perfectly right.</p> <p>But they are hurtful and mean. They don’t own up to it at all. They get offended if I try to point it out.

I feel personally offended
