“Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live. And unselfishness is letting other people's lives alone, not interfering with them. Selfishness always aims at creating around it an absolute uniformity of type. Unselfishness recognizes infinite variety of type as a delightful thing, accepts it, acquiesces in it, enjoys it.” #uniform #QuotsyJune19

gradcat Beautiful, and so achingly, painfully true. It seems so obvious to me, and yet I know that unselfishness is no easy feat. ♥️ 3mo
Crazeedi Very difficult to achieve, but a worthy goal 3mo

(Day 3 - #Uniform)

*Dr. Felitti studies the relationship between people who have been abused and their subsequent weight gain: this is where weight functions as UNIFORM. The tagged book contains a chapter by Dr. Felitti on this very subject.

“Our people made that choice, the choice to go to Sameness. Before my time, before the previous time, back and back and back. We relinquished color when we relinquished sunshine and did away with difference. We gained control of many things. But we had to let go of others.”

Geeklet I‘m now sitting on my bed in a panic trying to remember if I own The Giver. I don‘t think I do and that‘s a serious error on my behalf. 3mo

ruskigurl16 @Andrew65 I would so go see that film, because my favorite detective would probably be in it, too. 😁 3mo

“When I wear my typical uniform, it feels like safety, like I can hide in plain sight. I become less of a target. I am taking up space, but I am doing so in an unassuming manner so I am less of a problem, less of a disturbance. This is what I tell myself. “ from Roxane Gay‘s Hunger: A Memoir of my Body.
