I really do feel sorry for you & I honestly hope you can find happiness one day ?? I love the quote “What other people think about me, is none of my business” See my highlighted stories ‘trolling’ to see my Cyberbullying campaign with the charity @cybersmilefoundation last year (not paid or sponsored just trying to use my experience & voice on here to help anyone going through bullying) ?? #DEARBODYTHANKYOU.

From Jeanette Winterson to John Irving: John Boyne on the best books about gay life

Monday 19:04 GMT

Decades earlier, a generation of incredibly brave authors were writing about gay life at a time when newspapers and booksellers were reluctant to review or stock their books, but it’s impossible to imagine a literary landscape without Christopher Isherwood, Patricia Highsmith, James Baldwin or Gore Vidal, each of whom helped to convince readers that the lives of others were just as interesting as the lives they recognised.

Andrew Scott on being Fleabag's new crush: ‘This is uncharted territory’

Saturday 13:35 GMT

Though he doesn’t like to dwell on it, Scott is probably still best known for his role as Moriarty in the TV series Sherlock.

Until he arrived, the show was all about the eponymous hero, played by Benedict Cumberbatch; Scott, working his sweet, boyish face into a kind of crazed malevolence, provided Sherlock with the five-star foe he deserved – an evil genius who promises his arch enemy, “I will burn the heart out of you.”

We were married for 10 years and lonelier than ever – then THIS happened and changed everything

Saturday 14:29 GMT

As I reminisce some 28 years later, I can tell you that our moment of repentance changed everything… and I mean everything.

'MARRYING YOU WAS THE WORST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE' -- HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED AFTER I TOLD MY HUSBAND THAT. We were in a bad place in our marriage and I didn’t know how to find my way back home!. My heart felt bruised and cold like the chilling winds that skate over Lake Michigan in the dead of winter.

Third of Britons believe Islam threatens British way of life, says report

Monday 12:38 GMT

More than a third of people in the UK think Islam is a threat to the British way of life, according to a report by the anti-fascist group Hope not Hate.

In polling by the group in July last year, 35% of people thought Islam was generally a threat to the British way of life, compared with 30% who thought it was generally compatible. Forty-nine per cent of those who voted Conservative in the 2017 general election thought it was generally incompatible, while 21% of Labour voters did.

The Unwinding of the Miracle review: cancer memoir is an epic in miniature

Monday 08:03 GMT

Until The Unwinding of the Miracle I did not grasp how important it was to Nicole, for her own peace, to set down on paper something that would outlast her.

In 1956, William Faulkner, who hated interviews, took time to describe this impulse to the Paris Review:. The question was about artists but Faulkner’s answer could be applied as well – or better – to mothers. The dying of a young mother from a terminal illness is such an obvious wrong that it has a way of galvanizing communities, doctors, onlookers, to take extraordinary measures.

The sixth mass extinction, explained

Monday 09:53 GMT

We've driven thousands of species to the edge of extinction through habitat loss, overhunting and overfishing, the introduction of invasive species into new ecosystems, toxic pollution, and climate change.

There are 26,500 species threatened with extinction, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), a global network of some 16,000 scientists. That includes 40 percent of amphibian species, 33 percent of reef-building corals, 25 percent of mammals, and 14 percent of birds.

Review: America through the lens of Diane Arbus ?????

Saturday 14:29 GMT

Looked at from another perspective, however, and you can see the sensitive, striving artist that was Diane Arbus in every single one.

Arbus not only admired the range and depth of characters to whom Chaucer gave literary life, but also the "tenderness" with which he treated them. It was a humanity she strove to replicate when photographing the discriminated against, the sort of people from whom most turn away but she looked upon with empathy.

My boyfriend and I have two kids — should I pay off his $130,000 student debt?

Sunday 09:54 GMT

Recommended: I want to marry my boyfriend, but he has $25,000 in credit-card debt and leads a financially reckless lifestyle. The other option is for him to take his loans to his grave as he most likely will never have a job that pays well enough to require substantial payment.

We’d both prefer me to not pay it off as this money would otherwise go toward our kids’ inheritance and/or our retirement.

The nun who changed my life and helped me lose 80 pounds by stressing this one word

Monday 07:08 GMT

It’s been well over 30 years since I sat in that classroom but the lesson that Sister Maria taught me by forcing us to concentrate on the “fundamentals” is a sound doctrine that I regularly apply to my daily life.

Great achievements are so often the product of a series of small things regularly done well over an extended period of time. Thirty-two years later, I’ve run 78 marathons – but it all started by running just one mile.

El Chapo and the men who live by rules shaped by the blood of feuds

Monday 08:03 GMT

Since I started writing movies and television series on organised crime, the question I’m most often asked is: why do the stories of crimes committed by men such as El Chapo command such passion across generations and across continents?

Audiences are compelled by people who disregard the laws of the state but obey a deeper code – rules that are sanctioned on the road and shaped in the blood of feuds.

Photos emerge showing Venezuela's 'Death Squad' with lifeless bodies, victims described as anti-government protesters

Saturday 14:29 GMT

In what Venezuela experts call a sign of President Nicolas Maduro's desperate attempts to cling to power, special National Police squads dressed in black masks and uniforms this year apparently began targeting protesters.

Pictures and videos posted on social media show the squad acting aggressively against protesters and also show members near apparently lifeless bodies. The Caracas Chronicles, an independent news outlet founded in 2002, has run blistering essays and stories about FAES.

'We tenderly drop the vibrator into the bin': how I Marie Kondo'd my whole life

Sunday 06:03 GMT

If you would like your comment to be considered for inclusion on Weekend magazine’s letters page in print, please email weekend@theguardian.com, including your name and address (not for publication).

There is something beautiful about holding a knackered bullet vibrator tenderly in your hands, as a couple, and whispering, “Thank you for your service”, before dropping it into a bin. This philosophy fell flat on its arse as far as friendships were concerned, but came into its own when it involved spreading my nefarious paraphernalia out on a bed to see which things we wanted to take into our future.

Meghan Markle and her difficult dad -- What lesson does this royal mess have for the rest of us?

Sunday 06:03 GMT

In case your mom suspended your social media accounts for misbehavior, you need to know that Timothy Markle is the father of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

Let them be, stop expecting things from people who cannot provide those things, and recognize that we can live happy, productive lives regardless of what others, even close relatives, are doing or saying.

Pop, Prince and Black Panthers: the glorious life of Chaka Khan

Saturday 05:09 GMT

Her father remarried, to a civil rights activist who encouraged Khan to speak at rallies; by the age of 14, she had been recruited by the Black Panthers.

The atmosphere wasn’t much helped when the record label started billing the band as Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, or by tension between the band members and Khan’s second husband, Richard Holland.
