Support can make a huge difference when someone is hitting a rough patch. Why wait until then to let your friends know you'll be there? Take a stand for Mental Health Awareness and tag someone you care about to let them know you have their back.

i just wanted to remind you that your safe food CAN BE WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT IT TO BE!!
it doesnt have to JUST be an apple and grapes. or lettuce and a pickle. (ranodm i know lmfao)
if your safe food is cereal, THATS OKAY BABE.
if your safe food is pizza and ice cream, THATS OKAY BABE.
if your safe food is popcorn and gatorade, BITCH THAT IS MORE THAN OKAY.
we are ALL out here just struggling and barely hanging on, tryna reach our goals.
you dont have to feel the need to only eat certain safe foods based on what others are eating, in order to feel valid and proud.
let your safe food be WHATEVER you want it to be.

@wombtater submitted: No id necessary! The tattoo was done by @jenntattooess on Instagram.
I used to be severely entomophobic, and the first bug I picked up that helped me get over the fear was a g*psy moth caterpillar. I went back and forth on the ethics of getting an invasive species tattooed, but the lil stinkers are too close to my heart I guess.
Beautiful tattoo and little friend visiting the tattoo! They may be invasive, but they're still pretty dang cute. And I love that they helped you get over your fear :)
For future reference, they are now referred to as the LD moth (as in Lymantria dispar - also sometimes LDD moth for the subpsecies Lymantria dispar dispar) because the original common name is considered a slur.

Dear diary... (Trigger warning)
I think it's not a matter of whether I will or not.
It's a matter of when...
I know I will break down one day and try it again...
I'm constantly thinking about it.
I'm just a ticking time bomb waiting to explode...

I'm jealous of those who can function like a normal human being. They don’t have anxiety holding them back from everything, they don’t struggle to get out of bed or have to put on an act that everything is fine when its not. They don’t struggle to hold friendships and relationships... they don’t feel sad for no fucking reason everyday. Those that can hold jobs and work towards their dreams, the ones who have self esteem and see the beauty in themselves. Those that know what its like to feel safe and secure, not insecure and fearful of it all.

My special talent is assuming our friendship is a burden on you and you dread hearing from me. So then I stop talking to you to ease the load and ruin what we had

Now I’m empty. I have nothing to give to anyone. Except for talking about my pain. And since I realize that’s toxic, I’ve simply isolated.
