Not to trivialize anyone’s problems, but here are few time-saving answers to questions I get FREQUENTLY:
Q: “Does ____ like me?”
A: They either don’t, or else they’re even more bashful than you are — otherwise you’d already know the answer. (If the latter, you’re just going to have to corner them. Go get ‘em, Querent!)
Q: “Will _____ and I ever get back together?”
A: Gurrrrrrrl, you’d probly better hope not.
Q: “Will my illness get better?”
A. I don’t make guesses about medical issues on this site. Wanna talk about how to mentally/spiritually cope with illness and/or death? Let’s rock.
Q: “I feel really depressed/restless/hopeless.”
A. Remember, it is January, the darkest most horrible time. If you’re getting proper sunlight, exercise, and sleep and you still feel this way, then you should probably talk to your doctor. If there’s something specific that’s getting you down, then by all means ask, and be specific — that’s why I’ve enabled anonymous posting.

"O Shi’a of the family of Muhammad, bear in mind that one who is not able to control his soul when angry is not from us, and also is the one who does not better his association with his associates, show proper behavior with those who exercise proper behavior, befriend those who befriend him, provide protection to those who protect him, observe proper table manners with those who share with him the table. O Shi’a of the family of Muhammad, be pious before Allah to the best of your abilities. There are no means and no power without Allah."

Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (ع) al-Kafi h. 3585 (via shiaislam)

I was so inspired that my friend @livylovestorun posted her weight yesterday. Weight is a funny thing. It’s definitely something that I have always struggled with in the healthy lifestyle. I remember when I was 19 I was at my lightest weight but thinking back I wasn’t nourishing my body with enough food or proper exercise. I probably had like no muscle mass because I was such a wuss, ha! Isn’t that funny how weight works? So, why is the weight issue a struggle? I think it’s because people are curious about other people’s weight. And we have been conditioned to be self-conscious of a dumb number on the scale. The scale doesn’t tell anyone about the food you are putting in your body. The scale doesn’t tell a person that you had a serious non-scale victory the day before and you ran miles and miles! The scale doesn’t tell you jack squat. So this is me burning my scale number, because a number is just a number.
