As a young child, I remember looking at myself in the mirror a lot. It wasn't because I thought I was good looking or ugly. I just sat in front of it and couldn't believe that the person I saw was me. I just observed myself. I ate in front of it and learned my quirks when i ate. Moving my hands around was amusing to me. Practing at talking was what i did the most. I later learned at school that facial expression was inportant. It made me practice them in front of the mirror. I am now able to control my face to be a blank slate or show an emotion very clearly. I still kinda practice in the mirror. Good times.
Recommend me your favorite song at the moment.
even if i dont feel like i am, i hope all the little girls out there know how priceless and beautiful they are, i hope they get told that everyday so if a day comes they wouldn't for a second answer to anyone and doubt their worthiness.
I think what people have to realize about victim blaming is that it isn't a discussion about whether the victim is to blame or not. Most of the time there are valid arguments in favour of this, actually. It at least is most often a mostly philosophical question that nobody can truly answer with yes or no. When they say victim blaming is bad then it isn't because what you say is completely untrue - it is bad because it tells people that committing the crime is okay. Saying she shouldn't have been drunk is saying you're allowed to rape drunk girls because it's her fault when she's raped, not the rapists fault. Saying you shouldn't take nudes if you don't want to get them leaked is telling a lot of boys that it's okay to spread nudes. I was assistant in a grammar school for a year and we had to do a lot of anti bullying workshops, and let me tell you, it was shocking to see how many of the kids seemed to realize for the FIRST time that it is not okay to bully someone because so often had they heard phrases like "if you don't want them to call you names then don't give them a reason to" or "but if you know they always hit you, why do you keep wanting to play with them?" Instead of "don't hit the kid"
Getiing my life back together begins with working out. Next is shower and studying.
So I have talked so much trash about Fortnite. My roommate plays it and I decided to give it a try for his birthday cuz he was always asking me to try it. I found myself actually having fun playing Fortnite and I'm not sure if I should feel ashamed or not 😅
I wish I was a child again anxiety didnt exist then
I got a flight to New York in less than 24 hours and I've never flown before. I'm not scared of flying or anything, but I'm 16 (male) and I'll be flying alone.
I love to observe people. It's so amusing how everyone's expressions are different from one another. The way someone scrunshes their nose when they are confused while another scratchs their arm. The way they use their hands to express themselves. The way people have little lisps or how some breath deeply before they respond to a question that challenges them. It's so eye catching. I sometimes get so entertained that I forget that I have to respond back when I'm talking to someone. I was always a listener than a talker. People yelling me their stories are amazing. The way they ended up in their current position always inspires me. It's probably weird for some people but I don't mind. Just by observing, my heartbeat slowls down and i become calm.
I believe there are two kinds of loads we carry: there’s the heaviness of your experiences; how much hurt they weigh, how sore your mussels are as you drag the weight of these stories everyday, how shaken your body is as more weight is being added, and how much you adjust the way you stand and walk to be able to keep going despite the weight and along with it. The sad truth about this weight is that you don’t lose it. You can only learn how to carry it, and at times, you feel overwhelmed and helpless as you try to find a body position that is less exhausting and disabling. Then there’s the heaviness of your heart ; how much emptiness it weighs, how much anguish it carries from one day to the next, how burdened by it you feel, and how far its mussels can stretch without it breaking. This weight, on the other hand, can be lost by exercise. When you practice self-compassion, your heart feels lighter, and you feel lighter. That lightness is what makes your movement as you walk through life so graceful and effortless, that every step you take feels like a relaxed and lively dance.
