- Mariska: ”When I started doing research for my role on SVU, I was floored by the statistics on the prevalence of sexual assault and domestic violence. I think my first reaction was, “Wait, this can’t be”— but of course it is. I knew right away that I wanted to do something about it, but the thing that really moved me to action was the letters that started coming to me from viewers. First there were a few, then more, then hundreds, and thousands since then. The women and men writing the letters didn’t ask for an autograph or a headshot. They disclosed their stories of abuse. I was holding in my hands the stories behind the statistics that I had learned. I wanted to respond in a more complete way, to do more to help survivors heal and reclaim their lives. So the Joyful Heart Foundation was my response”
#ChooseKindness #BeInspired I wrote something on Twitter/ tumblr the other day about our choose kindness episode, and it kind of goes with the theme:
I am currently writing this today not only because of the theme of our episode today (bullying/ accepting yourself) but also because it is a theme and lesson that is very important to me.
We all have flaws, whether we choose to accept them or not. It is so upsetting that people still choose to tear someone apart because of their flaws, when really that’s what makes that person most human. Even the most popular/ seemingly perfect person has flaws. You do not know what someone has been through, what may have affected them, and what they write in their diary about. “Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me” is a saying that has always made me annoyed. Calling someone stupid when they can’t understand something will stick with them. And calling yourself stupid or bringing yourself down is not good either. Literally everyone has flaws, even Beyonce.
I don’t expect you to embrace all of your flaws in this second, but slowing learning to love yourself and all your flaws can help. I know I’m still working on that. :)
how the fuck does sexting even start like “haha ok that’s cool but let’s talk about my dick now”
That is actually how it starts
This is your Sunday evening reminder that you can handle whatever this week throws at you. Even if school, work or general life isn’t okay, you’ll get through it because you are damn strong and amazing.
