It literally kills me when men think they know women’s fashion better than women

That moment when you truly comprehend

you’re completely obsessed with the biggest

ever.

You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it.

Everyone sees what you appear to be; few really know who you are.

Niccolò Machiavelli (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

Indeed.

I’m betting a lot of people are reblogging this because they’re feeling sad about how isolating the state of human existence is, but Machiavelli was actually trying to teach people to take advantage of this image issue for political reasons, with a questionable level of ethics.

So people are thinking “this is sad, and lonely, ‘cause I’m an okay person I think and it’d be nice if people knew and maybe even appreciated that” but really Nicky’s basically saying “Go ahead, be a shithead. Be the shithead; just don’t let anyone realize that you’re being a shithead or they’ll turn on you for doing all that shithead stuff you did.”

Basically, instead of bemoaning the isolation, take advantage of it. Not to become a manipulative dickhead/possible murder ie a Machiavel exactly, but to keep in mind that a) your identity is yours to reveal and do with as you please. Turn this into a comforting strength, as opposed to a source of distress - nobody can take this from you, ergo what they think really doesn’t matter.

go into a starbucks in NYC and say very loudly into your phone “this movie script is stale and trite! we need some new talent, someone with a fresh outlook” and wait

I don’t think people realise how hard it is to re-discover the person you were before depression or even try to remember your own personality

and if you’ve had depression since early childhood you don’t even know if you have your own personality

you didn’t have time to be a person before depression

and it’s scary having no idea who you are

So. I had no idea about this app until I went into my doctor and he told me about it. 

LISTEN UP. THIS APP. THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE IS SERIOUSLY A BLESSING. ESPECIALLY TO ANYONE WITH FINANCIAL PROBLEMS (which is kind of everyone now). THIS IS NOT INSURANCE THOUGH. BUT IT WILL HELP YOU OUT. DOWNLOAD THIS APP RIGHT NOW. NO. STOP READING. DOWNLOAD IT

This app allows you to input the prescription you have, select your dose, and then find a place near you (or your own pharmacy) with the cheapest price. Then you click “get code/coupon/discount card,” show that to the pharmacist, and THERE YOU GO. SAVING YOU SOME CASH TO GET YOURSELF A WELL DESERVED DRINK, CANDY BAR, DATE MONEY, SEX TOY CASH, OR GO BUY YOURSELF A HAMSTER AND NAME HIM STARLORD WITH THE EXTRA MONEY

No, but in all seriousness. This app is saving my ass right now. 

I’m Trans* and have Fibromyalgia, and this is really making a difference already. I hope this helps out other people. We all know it fucking sucks to have to pay this much for the medication we need to function in life.

there are also similar things available in browser if you google “compare prescription prices,” that’s how i found out walmart and some other places have $4 estradiol
