Twitter Thread: Terminally Ill Children Describe Their Favorite Things In Life

If you're not ready for a stirring feels trip, then bail out now. This Twitter thread from @AlastairMcA30 features a collection of profound insights from terminally ill children. The wisdom is deep in what they have to say. If anything, it's a thread like this with the insights that the kids were able to provide, that definitely goes to show that there's so much in life that we take far too seriously. When you get caught up in taking life too seriously, you end up missing the whole point that there's so much of it that's just here to be thoroughly enjoyed. 

Of course, a great way to go about enjoying the treasures that this life has to offer is to double down on being as present as possible. If you're constantly getting carried along on panicked thought streams where you're projecting yourself out into the future land of scary what-ifs, or living in the past, you won't be able to enjoy the beautiful moments when they're actually right in front of you. Just a good thing to keep in the back of your mind.

Son Discovers Mom Lied About Allergies to Keep Him on Strict Diet

Modern life gives us a huge amount of liberty over our diets, and some diets are definitely more healthy than others. Often parents are trying to keep their kids safe and healthy as best they can, but it seems like lying to your kid about a life-threatening allergy isn't the right way to go about it. It's kinda reminiscent of these vegans who were called fake because they feed their cat meat. Sometimes the exact opposite of this happens, like when this Tumblr user realized they actually had allergies.

Tumblr Thread Says Movies Fuel Unrealistic Physical Standards

This Tumblr thread called out the impacts of movies in terms of fueling unrealistic physical standards, when it comes to fitness. It addresses how bodybuilding culture can manifest in convincing people that they should look a certain way (or that it'd be nice to), when in fact those very images are of folks that are sometimes severely dehydrated.

Doctors' Best "Asking For A Friend" Stories

Someone on AskReddit asked for doctors to share their best stories of people coming in, and seeking them out to ask for professional medical advice for their "friends." Folks have a funny blindness they apply toward not knowing how obvious it is that they're asking advice for themselves, from doctors. At least the doctors seem to take it in stride, and exercise an understanding of the process.
