I have a new phrase, I want to share it with you. This phrase, much like any coping mechanism, can be easily misused.
It's "that says nothing about -you-" in response to someone doing/not doing a small basic tasks.
For example, I discovered this phrase when Roommate was beating herself up for not taking a shower. When I said "You taking a shower or not says nothing about you as a person." she seemed relieved, and then ended up taking the shower.
Partner and I were maybe gettin into sexy times, but they stopped, and asked if it was okay if they didn't.
Depression makes you place heavy value judgements on the smallest parts of yourself. But a lot of stuff you do regularly because "you should" is totally optional, to at least some degree. And reframing it not as a "reflection" of the self but just "possible" to you as a concept seems to free you of some of that weight.
White leftists need to read more authors of colour because the amount of people I have seen saying reading Lenin or other white people on imperialism is enough is embarrassing. It doesn’t even cross their minds to listen to us and our lived experiences. Calling urself a leftist and acting like that, lmao
They eat weeds and fertilize the soil to make way for grass and other garden-type plants. They also eat weeds *before* they eat grass.
No viable seeds survive their ruminant guts.
As commenter Jose Benitez writes, "It's kinda funny that with all our technology we are now realizing and relearning the old ways are not so bad after all."
Goats go where and do what chemicals and machines cannot.
After technological disenchantment, we are forced to re-learn ancient wisdom.

@interneteh let's talk kombucha first. it's a lightly carbonated fermented tea that also contains beneficial bacteria and yeast. it's a good way to replace soda and alcoholic beverages in your diet if you want to. And it's easy to make! Kombucha is made by a SCOBY, a self contained organism of bacteria and yeast. The scoby turns a sweetened tea into kombucha by converting sugar into vinegars and gases. This turns the tea from sweet to sweet and sharp tasting
By the way this thread turned into software really quick but the original sentiment also applies to real life goods. If y'all have food shares, free stores, free skools, time banking, makerspaces, tool libraries, seed libraries, book... libraries, repair cafes, bike repairs, brake light repairs, community gardens, free clinics, meshnets, etc. in your communities, find them and tell your friends about them
