A state of exhaustion inspired by acts of nonsensical violence, which force you to revise your image of what can happen in this world—mending the fences of your expectations, weeding out all unwelcome and invasive truths, cultivating the perennial good that’s buried under the surface, and propping yourself up like an old scarecrow, who’s bursting at the seams but powerless to do anything but stand there and watch.

In Norwegian, you don’t refer to your romantic partner as a “boyfriend” or “girlfriend”. You say “kjæreste”, which is gender neutral and literally translates to “the dearest”.

and in swedish you refer to your boyfriend/girlfriend by saying ”älskling” which translates into ”my beloved one” 

And in Finnish we say “mulkvisti” which means “one I don’t hate as much as the others”

They’re part of the ‘adulthood starts at 30’ generation

And in one line community sums up my entire generation (via scooty-mccall)

#my thoughts exactly #is this a terrible thing? #nah #i’m good with it #because in the past it meant you got married at 20 #it meant you spent 10+ years of your marriage fighting about finances #it meant that mental illnesses #depression #anxiety #were ignored #because you had to carry on for the sake of appearances #for the family name #adulthood #more people are now finding individual stability and fulfillment before subjecting themselves to the major shift of life with a family or a partner #which means a happier home life #more honesty #and better adjusted adults
