  • Hey Rosie so last night I went out with a particular group of friends and every time I'm with them I always end up doing drugs or something stupid. I really like these people and enjoy hanging out but I make bad decisions when I'm with them (totally not peer pressure! It's my own choosing) I'm not sure what to do, I don't wanna lose the friendship group but I get caught up in the moment wen we're together and do things I regret the next day. I think it's more a question of my own willpower :/

    Hello!

    I won’t beat around the bush // you are the one responsible for your own actions, not your friends.

    There’s nothing wrong with going out with your friends and staying sober. There’s nothing wrong with your friends choosing to do drugs, and you politely decline.
    There is nothing wrong with saying “no thank you” and being content with that.

    You can go out with friends and be your own person, don’t be a sheep.

    Live as you please, by your own rules. This is your life and to live for others is a waste.

    If you’re unhappy with your decisions - change them, learn from your mistakes (this is what life is about, if we don’t mess up we don’t learn how to do better next time)

    YOU are the only one in the drivers seat of your life. x

    Rosie... First of all I LOVE you. I literally wouldn't be here today if it weren't for you (dramatic but true) Secondly, I don't know what to do. I literally want to run away from society and live with the orangutang or something. I'm just so tired of this society and the way we treat animals and people and mental illness and poverty and the way people react to people like me who want to live in peace and harmony with everything in the world. They see us as radical but I see us as peaceful.

    Hello treasure!

    That makes me heart tingle - thank you for holding on and sharing this beautiful world with me.

    My sweet, this is often how I feel. This is often how many people feel. I would love to escape this society, live on an island with like minded souls, raise my children free from this polluted society. Free from government dictation and control.

    It’s okay, and I would say “normal” to feel this way / to wish to runaway from society as we know it. We must realize though - we ARE society, each and every one of us are apart of it, we are the people. We need to stop removing ourselves, start taking responsibility and action.

    Although we want to escape, we are here. We are a percentage of the population who are so compassionate, we are hurt by it.

    "Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors." — Andrew Boyd

    Do what you can, embrace what you have and change your own path. You are as free as you believe you are, happiness is solely within your own mind. Live compassionately, share your knowledge. Know that you are doing what you can each day, and that is enough. ♡

    “ The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness. ”

    This made me so happy, thank you Camille, you are such an amazing person ♡

    These four books are some of the most popular books about nutrition (at least plant based nutrition). I don’t have The Starch Solution myself, but I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.

    • The China Study
    • Whole
    • The Starch Solution
    • The 80/10/10 Diet

    If you want to watch a health documentary I highly recommend Forks Over Knives (you can watch it on Netflix). It literally changed my life :)
