why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.
Regardless of where the word may have originally spawned from, people use it to mean vagina in modern English, hence, calling someone a pussy has direct association with female anatomy.
Never disregard how words are used MODERNLY. I don’t fucking care where they came from or what they originally meant, the current meaning words have gained through common use is all-important and needs to be taken into high consideration.
Besides, if that were the case, being “a pussy” would be grammatically incorrect. Pretty sure no one is thinking of the adjective pusillanimous when they say it. I mean really.
We went over this sheet in group therapy last week.
this stuff is incredibly effective in my experience
i have seen this before but will reblog it whenever i see it
Very cool… I did this to stop having my anxiety physically manifest when it was very bad in high school. I imagined the anxiety as a light that would pass through my body as long as I didn’t tense against it…
my therapist gave me similar advice. i visualize disruptive emotions as various critters traveling through my back yard. “what if random arguey person is right i better obsessively check and re-check my response because suddenly i don’t trust my logic” is the big drooly neighbor dog that keeps taking a dump in the compost pile, “distracted by the possibility that i am about to be distracted” is an irregularly cawing crow in the walnut tree, and so forth. they come around, they do their annoying thing, and they always eventually leave. :D

Anke designed an adorable teapot cozy that accentuates the teapot’s resemblance to a snail’s shell and adds a pair of eye stalks to complete the transformation. They really do look like cute snails, but with the added bonus that these charming mollusks won’t eat your garden plants.
i find it really angering that abusive friendships aren’t addressed as much as abusive relationships. they’re both very much alike, horrible, and do a great deal of damage. its hard to talk to someone about leaving an abusive friend and feel like you’re being taken seriously
My depression, anxiety and high levels of stress and poor immune system to go with it has cost me my job. This is just proof of how seriously mental illness effects the those with it.
