Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them.

We spend so much energy on made-up competitions that happen mostly in our own minds. Our culture might have made us believe that this way of being is good, but all it really does is increase our sense of separateness and put people against each other, causing useless suffering in pretty much everyone involved.
It seems to me that unlearning this habit is necessary not only for us to live more fulfilling lives but also so we can build better communities with each other.

No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to others is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.

You have dug your soul out of the dark, you have fought to be here; do not go back to what buried you.

You'll meet a hundred different people who will describe you in a hundred different ways, don't dwell too much on the kind of impression you make. Remember, there are a thousand paintings of the sun, but only one that rises and sets each day.

Boss made a dollar
I made a dime,
That was a poem
From a simpler time.
Now boss makes a thousand
And gives us a cent
While he’s got employees 
Who can’t pay the rent.
So when boss makes a million
And the workers make jack
Then that’s when we riot
And take our lives back.

Thoughts on the gendering of Chinese pronouns
Edit: I replaced the word "colonization" with "westernization" in the last frame for accuracy. This comic was originally intended as personal vent. I didn’t expect it to get so much attention, and I will admit I wasn't as careful with wording as I could have been. The original comic and its wording can be found here with an image ID. 
Also can the racists and ra/dfe/ms get off my post and get better reading comprehension. This post was about my grief for western influence unnecessarily gendering something that wasn’t gendered before, not saying that gender roles and misogyny never existed in China so stop derailing the post.

I am homesick for a place I am not sure even exists. One where my heart is full. My body loved. And my soul understood.
