A Girl In too Many Roles

3-to-1

She must cook!

She must Clean!

She must be pretty but not too pretty!

She must be in shape but not show her body.

She must be young but not too young.

She must be smart but not too smart.

She must indure but not show struggle.

She must trust me even when I’m wrong.

She must wait for me until I’m ready.

Yet what will be her prize for this, pain.

Garnet Thighs Saves Lives

Garnnett

This is my Fanart of Garnet from Steven Universe.

Now I know this is marketed as a kids show but if you were a fan of cartoons such as The Avatar: The Last Airbender then you will fall in love with this as well.

Garnet is a wonderful character that is shown to be a leader but can also have doubts and doesn’t mind enjoying herself when she wants to. She is well known for her Afro and hips. It is one of the very times I have seen a black character that is beautiful, smart, happy, and has a great relationship with the people around her. I hope to she more characters like this in the future.

Also if you like my fanart please let me know and I will do more in the future. 

Chaos and Beauty

llll-1

When you look into my eyes what do you see?

Is it Chaos or Beauty?

Is it Fear or Love?

Is it Death or Life?

The answer is only given to the ones brave enough to seek it.

Is Getting Married important anymore?

5 Reasons getting married is still a thing.

 

The idea of marriage has change over the last few decades as to what is the purpose of it. Now days it seems to be gaslighted as just something to do if you feel like it or it’s just a piece of paper but deep down we all know that isn’t the case. Here is 5 reasons getting married is still a thing.

Sealing the deal

People will try your relationship if they do not see a ring. A Ring is legit just a mark that goes on your hand that will show everyone that you have been taken. It makes it easier for others to understand your relationship is serious. Also if you see that someone is afraid to wear a ring then you will also know if the take you seriously.

Right of Passage

When is the last time you heard someone in their 40’s say they have a boyfriend or girlfriend? Now I guarantee when you read that in your head that it made you fell uncomfortable.  There is nothing wrong with older people dating but, at the same time you can’t help but wonder how 20 years of life later and they still haven’t found love. Falling in love is apart of growing as a person and makes you have a better understanding of life all around. When you get married people view you differently,  they begin to see someone who has mentally matured and thinks of more than themselves.

Benefits

Everyone need some type of health benefits.  There is no way around that, your going to need it and it is expense. Marriage helps you take that to the max and at a better price for you and your family. Why have a whole family and have to have 2 different healthcare plans it is a waste and costly.

Living Together

Marriage can help you build wealth, living together can make bill seen much smaller than they were before. Personal, I have a man that pays all the bills I do come from an old fashion style of living and he was fully aware of this as well.  Divided and conquer is still working, he handles the bills and I make a house a home.  Now I know that is not what everyone wants however it does work.

Death

One day the person you love will die, you are making the arrangements and then it hits you. You have no power in this situation. Because you have decided marriage was not important now everything is out of your hands when they die. You have not control unless they happen to make a great will.

 Overall, do not let the news and media fool you marriage is an important part of life if you truly love some one because if you don’t it will cause pain later on.

5 Ways America Society Is Making You Mentally ill

If you have ever watched the hunger games one detail that is often overlooked are the people who were provided with everything.  Their lives were so simple that watching children kill each other was seen as entertainment.  Having all the resources you could need or wanted sounds like paradise, but when humans have no goals in life we begin to lose something important, passion.  Society takes up new activities when survival is no longer a struggle and try to find something to feel passionate about.  For example fashion or some type of extreme sports to fill their lives with excitement or purpose. We are filling our time with useless wants and desires.  These are 5 mentally illnesses that are growing because of our society.

1. Anorexia

Anorexia is when your body weigh is extremely low to the point that you could die from starving.  There are more than 200,000 cases reported a year in the U.S. if you look at the studies from the National Eating Disorder Association. Now you should consider that as time passes more people were able to afford going to the hospital which may cause a jump is statistics. Still the numbers are increasing especially the gap between men in women for this disorder.  Anorexia is most commonly found in preteens to young women. Due to social norms, women attempting to become underweight is seen as an accomplishment.  When girls are told skinny is better they continue to lose weight no matter what the cost to their bodies.  Sadly, this is one of the most encourage mental illnesses to have in America just watch America’s Top Model and they will show you how being underweight is required to be beautiful.

2. Bulimia

This is another mental illness that is more common among women.  This is one of the steps or symptoms people with anorexia have.  Mental illness can grow because of what type of society you live in.  It is  not by accident that Bulimia is more common with women. Society has told them that starving yourself to look good is a choice.  That way of thinking should never be an option and yet to this day we still encourage women to make themselves smaller to please others.  This illnesses takes the biggest damage with those peoples teeth because of all the acids they are releasing daily from their mouth.

3. Hoarders

When I first heard of the idea of what a hoarder was I did not believe it.  The idea that people would willing fill their homes with trash just seem like such a bad idea that no one would do that on purpose. However, after watching a few episodes of hoarders I started to understand that this was about much more than having too much trash or being lazy. This lifestyle is a form of expressing grief.  The people on those shows lost something special that could never be replaced so instead of looking to people for support they began to hold dearly to anything they own whether or no it had value. This is their way of controlling something in there life.  In America, we encourage people to keep buying even when they don’t need it because we are a capital run society and this type of greed is overcoming our abilities to find comfort in people instead of object.

4. Anxiety

From the day we are born we are taught to judge. Anxiety is the product of someone feeling they are out of place or don’t belong.  Anxiety is much more of an external problem because we are judging every person we lay eyes on.  Some people have to deal with this more than others due to their gender, sexual partners, race, or birth defects.  We as a society are causing so much pain, yet we pretend it is not connected.  All we can do is teach people coping skills to handle the pressure instead of stopping the people and habits that are causing anxiety.

5. Obesity

Now in the U.S. alone there are over 3 million cases being reported a year dealing with obesity.  Many tend to believe that this is a sign of wealth but that is not true.  The poorer you are the less likely your are to have fresh produce daily.  High calorie foods are cheap which causes many to buy more of it.  Now many like to look at being overweight as the main problem that can only be solved with working out but that is just more propaganda to cover up the real issue.  You can be the right weight and still have high blood pressure.  It is not about the weight, the main problem is how you maintain that weight. Eating 500 calories in fruits verses candy does make a difference on the inside and it is causing more health problem for people who thought they were fine.  The BMI scales does not prove that you are healthy.  True obesity is just another mental health problem.  Just like the hoarders people become addicted to food to fill the space of another problem.

Fighting Against Society

The moral of this story is that our society is making us empty inside.  I am not saying that these mental illnesses would all go away if we had a better society, however I do believe that the increasing numbers of cases are growing because of our society.  It is not random that worm suffer from anorexia when people constantly praise being underweight as a form of beauty.  We are making people mentally ill and if we continue this path the only people who will profit are the hospitals. Sometimes less is more.
