PSA

When someone uses violence or threatens violence in an attempt to convince you to do something they believe to be “in your best interests”, that’s probably not why they want you to do it.

I’m just going to leave this here.

There are a lot of books that I read in high school that I’ve had to read again in college. I generally like them better now that I’m older and able to better appreciate them.

That being said, a lot of people see the ending of A Doll’s House as sad and tragic. Me? I don’t think that Ibsen could have possibly written a better ending.

"So often we try to make other people feel better by minimizing their pain, by telling them that it will get better (which it will) or that there are worse things in the world (which there are). But that’s not what I actually needed. What I actually needed was for someone to tell me that it hurt because it mattered. I have found this very useful to think about over the years, and I find that it is a lot easier and more bearable to be sad when you aren’t constantly berating yourself for being sad." by John Green  (via unlively)
