you are not any less bisexual/pansexual for being in a same-gender or different-gender relationship. being with one person does not compromise your identity.
For those who had a bad day:
there’s no shame in going to sleep earlier than normal; no shame in leaving your room messy and it’s definitely okay to leave some emails/messages/calls unanswered. if you need today to end earlier, IT’S OKAY. you can sort your life out tomorrow
Religious queer people are wonderful! You are holy and loved, your identity does not make you sinful. The universe, god, the spirit of life, and any beautiful name you so choose— they made you perfect and sacred as you are.
People often mistake “your feelings are valid” with “your reaction based on your feelings is ok”
Which isn’t the same thing
You’re entitled to how you feel. You’re not entitled to behave however you want based off of those feelings
“if you can’t brush your teeth that’s fine uwu one step at a time” posts are supportive and that’s great but I’m about to have a 4.4k$ dental bill because I wasn’t taking care of my teeth when I was super depressed so uhh brush your fuckin teeth
the reason I bring up those posts is because every time I saw one I felt less and less bad about not brushing them and when my teeth actually started causing problems it made my MH worse because I was having horrible anxiety about my teeth getting worse and now I’m facing procedures that will probably be pretty painful and will definitely be expensive so I kinda got some beef with the anti-recovery culture on this site
switch up the language a little.
didn’t brush your teeth this morning? forgive your past self and do it now!
woke up at 3am and realize you didn’t brush your teeth before bed? 11pm you was tired, forgive yourself, and just do it now!
“it’s okay” DOES lose helpfulness when you forget that it’s supposed to mean “don’t beat yourself up about mistakes, and don’t let it keep you from doing something different.”
present you and future you don’t have to suffer just bc past you slipped. past you was going through it. give them a break. but, please, don’t let that stop you from doing something different. 11pm wants 3am you to feel better, even if they couldn’t make it happen.
This is so beautiful. She was bullied on the bus at school because of skin this and did this self love exercise. She’s so beautiful and I hope she realizes it. You’re a diamond young black girl. Don’t let anyone or anything steal your joy!
To all of my Muslim followers, I am sending you love and hope for a calm, happy, generous and blessed Ramadan.
Just wishing any queer Muslims who follow this blog Ramadan Mubarak (translated: A blessed Ramadan in Arabic).
For those that do not know. From 12th April to 12th May this year is when Muslims around the world fast from sunrise to sunset as it is a special holy month.
Hi can you save the link or tell me where I cam find the full version of "love freely"? I have been seeing it in some we waving posts and I'd really like to read the full text.
Hey, love! I actually wrote Love Freely as a part of a series of poems that go in lots of different directions. They’re not published anywhere as of now, but I was thinking of posting a comp on my side blog @evanthology (not here because some of it is intense) so you can check there and I’ll tag you in the comments when I do! I’m glad you liked it ❤️
when you’re lonely:
- hug something soft. hold it close to your body so it’s warm.
- lie down somewhere. learn to love the silence. learn to appreciate stillness.
- place your hands on the area that aches. let the warmth of your hands soothe it.
- check up on someone else. despite the fears of coming across as embarrassing, unwanted, or whatever other lies your mind tells you. be the friend you need.
- create escapes that leave you feeling less empty. music, nature, literature, art, whatever you feel like. you’re alone so you’re free to choose.
