Sense8 has changed me every single time I rewatch it. Love, sex, tolerance, courage, friendship, loyalty, persistence, self-acceptance, found family, pride in being authenticity who we are.

It always elevates me to be my best self and believe in myself and remember there are those out there who can love us for exactly who we are. We need to believe in that. Have hope that we can change the world.

I hate the trends that imply people should not have been an asshole to you when you were in middle or High School for looking like a kid (which is ugly for girls apparently) because you grew up to be hot. Praising people for "glowing up" just reinforces that women should only be treated and seen as people when we are attractive. It implies that bullying unattractive people who stay "ugly" is understandable but some of us turn hot so you may regret bullying us when you cant date hot us.
It rubs me the wrong way, especially when you consider that a majority of their glow up is becoming very tiny weight wise, getting rid of identifying/ unique characteristics or style choices for feminity, and putting on makeup. All this does is reinforce patriarchal that to be a woman worthy of respect you have to perform femininity and you have to perform it well.
I think it would be a lot more productive If instead of creating trend that push the narrative "you shouldn't have been mean to me as a child because I won't date you now that I'm a hot adult" it would be better to reinforced female solidarity. Instead of focusing on your looks focus on the fact that no woman should be ashamed for not being a good enough ornament for the men around her. Women are people, we shouldn't have to be attractive to be treated as such.

There is nothing wrong with taking medication for your mental illness! This stigma should have been broken a long time ago. Mental illness should not be endured quietly, without reaching out for help from friends or without going through treatment. Your mental illness should not be a taboo. It should not make people easily judge you. It should not be treated as a burden. You are valid in your struggles and taking medication for your mental illness does not make you weak!

The person you owe forgiveness the most is yourself sometimes. We can be our harshest critics, the ones who sabotage ourselves most, the ones who speak to ourselves with harsh words filled with self-hatred and misunderstanding.

If someone is demanding that you sacrifice your mental health for their own selfish reasons, pay attention to that red flag, because it is one of the characteristics of a toxic relationship.

Society may have unrealistic expectations placed on you, but that doesn't mean the pressure should make you strive for perfection. You are worthy of feeling beautiful, loved, capable, and successful without having to strive for perfection, constantly trying to prove yourself to others.
