Come on in! Join Pinterest today...it only takes like a second or so.

I'm always throwing jars away rather than washing and peeling the labels simply because the lids have labels that won't come off. Why didn't I think of painting them, especially with chalkboard paint? Duh!

This cracked me up!

    Watched a tattoo show and a Brazillian woman got a quote in English, not Portuguese, so then when she went home no one would know what it said.

No helium needed to fill balloons for parties..... How to: Just vinegar and baking soda! I NEED TO REMEMBER THIS! This is important since helium is not a renewable source and is in such short supply.

Birthday kid gets a ballon avalanche when he/she opens the door in the AM. Pinned this before but this one uses crepe paper to hold the balloons instead of a sheet of plastic, which is way better! Cuz then they get to rip through the paper!

    In my case, "letting me go" wasn't an option.

    You have to be in a position of safety to help others. The same reason they tell the adults to put on rescue face masks before helping children put on theirs. It is never an option that you want to have to take. Trust me, it is not anything you even want to think about and it is only a last resort after you have tried and tried. In a relationship where one person is self destructing, you want to help, but there comes a time when you are too close and that person (giving them money, bailing them out, putting your heart into it again and again) they will bring you down with them. There are situations in life where you cannot save them, no matter how hard you want to and no matter how hard it is to pull yourself away. Its not an option that you want to take by any means nor is it easy as like you are alluding to. Hence the reason I called it a "hard lesson". Please do not try and over simplify someone else's struggles Danielle.

    when facing a situation where someone is self destructing, it can feel as if you are looking into the face of someone who is drowning, and knowing you cannot help them is the hardest feeling in the world.

    You act as though a person is thinking "oh well my nails aren't dry yet so Ill let this one go" I am sorry but that is naïve. Situations like that keep rescue workers in therapy for years and many who face those situations end up taking their own lives. It is not a situation to make light of Danielle.

    "eh, can't help them, Ill just let them drown". My point is that no one approaches such a situation with that intention or manor of thought, just as watching someone "drown" in drug addiction or other life crisis. Having to let them self destruct can often feel like watching someone drown and not being able to save them. It often has to get to the point of exhausting yourself and putting yourself at risk time and time again before the "rescuer" is forced to face the point of letting someone go (referring not actual drowning at this point). I am simply trying to explain the metaphor in the original phrase as well as address the phrase you commented as if a person simply has ever said "eh, I will just let them drown" weather in saving someone in the real sense or in the metaphorical sense." It is never that simple in either. Also, yes I found your comment "eh, I will just let them drown" offensive, as if a rescuer worker actually feels that way about the situation. I am sorry if I misunderstood and I do apologize if that is the case. I am also sorry that I was not effectively able to get my point across to you.
