don’t cross oceans for people who wouldn’t cross a puddle for you.
No, do it. Do cross oceans for people. Love people, all people. No conditions attached, no wondering wether or not they’re worthy. Cross oceans, climb mountains. Life and love isn’t about what you gain, it’s about what you give.
According to ‘The Sociopath Next Door’, as many as 1 in 20 people qualify as sociopaths. That’s 1 in 20 people who will take absolute advantage of you. They won’t be thankful and they would never change who they are as a result of your care and time because they lack basic empathy. They will say what it takes to soothe you, but privately they will view you as a fool. In their mind they’re “winning” because they’re taking in more than they’re giving out. Helping a sociopath is like helping a black hole. Don’t do it.
For the other 19 people, go for it. Love them without expecting a thing in return. The world would be so much better if everyone lived that way. But the OP is exactly right, watch for the ones who are literally just in it for themselves.
SNAILS EAT WORMS

WHO KNEW SNAILS ARE FUCKING MONSTERS
HOLYS HIT WHAT
In the world of the slimy, the slimiest is king.
i wish tumblr had more of a “educate the ignorant” attitude as opposed to “send death threats to the ignorant”
See, the argument I hear is always “it’s not our job to educate the ignorant”. Well that’s fine, but then why is it your job to scream at and insult them?
