"You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud."
Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.
YES THAT SECOND COMMENT
my name is Jenni, I am 20 years old and living in Berlin
on the 22nd of june I had to flee my apartment because my roommate’s abusive boyfriend attacked both of us. I reported him but he and my roommate denied everything and she still lets her boyfriend live with her.
I am currently living with friends and already have a new flat I can move into on the 1st of august but I am completely out of money. I don’t get money until the 26th of september, until then I have close to nothing.
not only do I have to pay rent and buy food, I also have a cat, Leo.
I just hope some of you might donate a little sum or just reblog this to signal boost. my paypal is email@example.com
thank you so much
edit august 30th: I’m already in my new flat but I’m still extremely low on money :/ I just need some for my rent (~260$) and for food (for myself and my cat). thats all I need for now to get through this month. if you are unable to help, it would be nice if you could just reblog this. thank you very much, I appreciate every dollar (or euro).
If you relapse, repeat after me:

- You are not out of control.
- All the progress you made hasn’t magically disappeared.
- You are not a failure.
- Life is a cycle of highs and lows- good times are ahead, so keep going forward.
- You matter.
