COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS
Not to diss on European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek or Norse. Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or even really the mythologies and beliefs of native peoples?
(Pssst from what group are these deities from?)
The Yoruba of western Africa.
i don’t have many forever reblogs
but this one is
One time my mom brought me home a book from the library and so I read it…it was a very explicit vampire sex book and it was called The Hunger. I ate it up. And so I asked my mom why she’d gotten me this vampire sex book and she just looked horrified for a moment. And she said, “I thought it was The Hunger Games.” It had a shirtless man on the front of it….
How the fuck would she think that was the dystopian youth novel that I’d wanted to read?
My only guess is because there was so much time spent playing up the romance angle and playing down the distopian future and child death stuff… yeah IDK.
You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
I think I’m getting better at this but the eyes need work.
