Outside of my professional life, I have known many couples over the years who had passion and electricity between them and who treated each other well. But unfortunately there is wide acceptance in our society of the unhealthy notion that passion and aggression are interwoven and that cruel verbal exchanges and bomblike explosions are the price you pay for a relationship that is exciting, deep, and sexy. Popular romantic movies and soap operas sometimes reinforce this image.

Forget me not

In Slovene, these are called ‘spominčice’, which would loosely translate into ‘little memories’. The different perception of the world through different languages is fascinating to me. 

And yet both refer to memory. Weird how they converge on that. What about tiny blue flowers says “something to do with remembering”?

In Finnish they are called “lemmikki” which means “beloved” or “darling”.

This is so sad. :(

so young….Call me sensitive, but watching things like this makes me tear up. I used to be like this.

This truly hurts my heart. This is why racism will NEVER affect white people in the same way. Racism has destroyed our mindset, and that is why racism is such a powerful weapon. Once you’re in someone’s head, the outcomes are damn near incurable.
