I love this sweet weird human

care about the way you look.
Find love and appreciation in the way you care for your body-whatever that means to you. Express yourself in the way only you can. Change or embrace things on your own terms. Care about the way you look because you care about yourself, not because you feel ashamed and ugly.

I just wanted to mention something that has really benefited me in the hopes that it may do the same for someone else- if you deal with excessive triggering in your day to day life, either from traumatic memories or other situations that act as reminders, I would really recommend seeing a therapist who does EMDR. Ultimately when you’re triggered your frontal cortex shuts off, making you unable to think rationally and process what your feeling/thinking. EMDR keeps your frontal cortex alert so that you can clearly look at traumatic memories and completely takes away the fight or flight reaction to the memory. I really can’t recommend this enough- do some reading on it if you’re interested ❤️

wonderfully existential.

I know I’ve wrote about this topic before but I just think it’s so important- I think that one of the biggest toxic believes that western society has (and as we all know western society has a big influence on a large portion of the world) is grouping people into categories of good or bad. I believe the reality is that every single person has duality. Every person has good and bad traits/qualities and some people have more of one or the other but no one is 100% light or dark. Because of this belief when someone “good” does something “bad” it crashes the reality of anyone who loves/admires that person. Why? Everyone has (deemed by society, but that’s another aspect of this conversation) faults- human beings are complex. Shame, desire, trauma, etc. make people act in peculiar ways. Don’t put anyone on a pedestal, including yourself, but especially those you love and look up to.
