These things are under your control:
- Your actions
- Your choices
- Your desires
- Your aversions
These things are not:
- Your body
- Your property
- The result of your actions
- Other people
The only good or bad things in this world is in your actions. Everything else is simply neutral, and beyond your control. Stop worrying about it.
Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final.
This might be one of the best things I’ve ever seen.
Take the stairs!
Cause there’s never a reason to take the elevator to the second floor.
Nobody ever has an injury or disability that makes climbing stairs impossible. Anybody who takes the elevator to the second floor must just be lazy, right?
THANK YOU! ^
It’s ableist BS… seriously calling someone ‘lazy’ because they take the elevator is judgmental as hell there are plenty of reasons why people have to take the elevator, invisible illness being one of them.
I took the elevator up the 25 or so stairs in the commons at college all year. The amount of crap I got for it was ridiculous. I’m sorry, I like starting my day heading to class and NOT dislocating all the joints from the hip down, having my heart rate jump to 180 bpm (idk if ableists know about abnormal heart rates so I’ll just tell you- THAT IS NOT A SAFE NUMBER) and passing out when I get to the top because my heart rate is so high and my blood pressure so low.
Even if I were as healthy as I look(I mean, minus the braces and KT tape and splints and general “I-don’t-get-restorative-stages-of-sleep-like-basically-ever” kind of look I have going,) why in the world is it your concern if I take the elevator to the second floor? Do we really need to make fun of anyone for making life choices so inconsequential as when to use the elevator? I think healthy people are also allowed to take the elevator whenever the heck they want to, and don’t you dare argue about their weight or fitness level- it should not matter in the least to you and I see no true way in which it affects your life.
I have never noticed braille symbols on elevator buttons before, that’s neat. Kinda cruel to put tape over them.
