be true to yourself…
…about everything, good or bad.
if something brings you joy, accept it and try to do more of it. only make sure that activity is not hurtful to someone else. if something makes you feel upset, there is no need to repeat it, no matter how much you may feel obliged to do it again.
you only have one life. live it beautifully. prioritise yourself and be happy ✨
Close your eyes and take a breath
Run your knuckles over your skin
Feel each dip and each split and each scab
Lick your lips, do you need chapstick?
Remember the curves of your body
The way it folds, the curling of your fingers
Your body needs to be fed and it needs to drink some water
Let your breath linger a little longer in your lungs
Now let it go deep and slow
Your body needs to sleep, sleep in peace
Trace your hands over your jaw and neck
Down your chest and to your hips
Over your knees and to your toes
I can see the cracks in your flesh
Where you’ve been broken and stretched
Don’t say you’re ugly, please my dear friend
You are beautiful
You are beautiful
You are beautiful
Please, please, don’t forget to tell yourself that
You are beautiful
Cracks and all the things in between
you don’t always need to start from scratch. you are allowed to have certain unbroken parts of yourself, even if the rest is unbelievably broken. don’t break everything just because you want to make something new and better of yourself. self help doesn’t necessarily needs to start from self hate.
I just wanted to put this out there that if any of you are currently struggling, if any of you need someone to talk to, my inbox is always open. If youre a girl or whatever and dont feel comfortable talking with a guy about it my wife’s blog is @stonerwitchybitchnyx and she as well will be more than willing to help any way she can. We love you guys. Our followers have been more supportive of us than most of our friends. We know whats it like to feel outcasted and alone. You matter to us, all of you. Stay strong guys💙💙💙
Today was a banana spilt lol. I felt really low again, and was unmotivated to do anything good for myself. But thankfully, halfway through the day, I couldn’t stand it anymore. I took the dogs out to the trails and hiked a few miles, practicing off leash recall. They did well, and it felt nice to be outside.
Today I ate:
-Chicken quinoa and salad greens
-3 oatmeal cookies
-spicy cajun pasta
I overate just a smidge, but I moved more than usual, so I’m freeing it from my burden. Fueling my body will help me move more tomorrow. 💖
GET GRATITUDE DONE
I have been victimized but i refuse to see myself as a victim…i am a survivor…
I have been molested, drugged, raped, abused, mistreated, beaten, neglected, tossed to the side, abandoned, replaced, assaulted, basically held hostage and left for dead.
None of these things define me…and I wont let them.
Everything that has happened to me has made me who I am today…though yes i went through hell and back…multiple times.
I have attempted suicide more times than I can count…and more than I remember. more than i care to admit to be honest. Im glad i failed.
I am a healer, I am sensitive, I am intuitive, I am resilient, I am strong, I am cautious, I listen to my gut, I am softspoken and shy with new people, I am bold, I have a heart of pure gold.
I have a wonderful life now, I am an amazing mother (and wife) and having alll that life experience, will help me be so much better. And if i can get through all that, I can get through anything.
I believe in ya’ll , and if you need someone to talk to Feel Free to contact me.💚
Relax. Breathe. Its okay.
don’t text her/him/then, whoever you know isn’t worth messaging but you have the urge to reach out to
not everyone is capable of making kindness a priority.
sometimes it’s because they’re having a hard day.
sometimes it’s because they’ve had a hard life.
sometimes it’s because they don’t have the tools
to get out of either cycle.
what we’re witnessing is just someone
caught in one of these loops.
it makes you take things less personally.

when you become aware of this, it should encourage you to work on yourself. to pull yourself out of this cycle. to be an example for others. to show them that it is possible to hold compassion even on your worst days.

All kidding aside, I had a long talk with my therapist today about starting to talk about proshipping stuff on my blog, and I shared my concerns that I, too, would get harassed. She was extremely supportive not only of what I was doing but also about having a plan and whatnot in place should I be on the receiving end of harassment, death threats, suicide baiting, etc. I wanted to share some of the tips we talked about.
If you need to log off and breathe, do it. Or if you can’t log off, go somewhere else online. Play a game, watch some youtube videos, start a discord server with friends you know and trust who can distract you.
Hang in there.
I woke up early, just like every day. I had breakfast, then a shower, then yoga. Right after I started working on a one-page comic that I have been commissioned for my bookshop’s magazine.
I thought I wanted to make it about the big changes that I am living in the last few months, the struggles with myself and the light that I am finally seeing by the end of the dark tunnel I’ve inhabited for so long. Basically, for all my life.
I love myself, finally and shyly.
I still struggle with paranoid thoughts but, in the end, I feel love towards myself, and compassion.
I understood the great difference between soul and ego: soul is me only, powerful and empowered; ego is what I want the others to see, it’s my perception in the eyes of strangers.
I see where my dark spots are, I feel my flaws and all I want is to embrace them because I know that behind each of my issues there is a long list of sad, angry humans unable to heal themselves. This long queue is going to end with me, as I won’t carry their shadow any longer.
No more misery, no more trauma inherited from family member to family member.
I refuse to pass on the unresolved issues of my family and, instead, I am taking responsibility for it.
I want to take care of all of this and say: “heal”.
Why stress over someone who won’t even text to see if you are alright?
Looking for a simple relaxing read that can add a little adventure and hope to my day. Mainly looking for something light hearted, wholesome, and happy.
