Jake Sisko understands feeling like the most boring person in the room. It can make you feel really left out and ignored because you think that people see you as boring. People might even talk over you like you aren't even there. This can be really frustrating and hurtful. Often, if you believe people see you as boring, it's because they just aren't seeing you for who you really are, which isn't necessarily because you've done something wrong; sometimes it's just because people aren't bothering to look at you deeply. Remember that you aren't boring, that you're a valuable person, and you deserve to be included and to be seen as the interesting individual you are. :)
Tom Paris understands never feeling good enough for anyone. People close to you might tell you all the way they want you to fix the way you are, and it's easy to always feel like you're disappointing them for not being what they want. This can also cause a lot of guilt when you're not able to do the things they want you to do.
It can be really difficult to live like this, feeling guilty all the time and feeling like you're a failure. People's standards for you might seem impossible to meet, which can wear down on your self esteem.
Remember that, just because you don't feel like you're living up to expectations, that doesn't mean that you're not a valid or worthy person. All you can really be expected to do is your best effort. Focus on the things you are doing instead of the things you aren't able to do, and include the things you want yourself to do, not just the things others expect of you. Even if it's not a long list, you should still be proud of yourself for everything you've done. He hopes that one day, you can learn to feel good enough for others, and for yourself.
Day 108 - 18.04.2021
Today I'm proud of myself for multitasking.
We needed to go to the shops today. I had also had a message from a friend I hadn't seen in ages, asking if I wanted to catch up. I was honest with them, and told them I was busy. They said they didn't mind, and we actually ended up going shopping together! It was so nice to just do something small while being with someone I've missed, and I got to get both tasks done without sacrificing anything.
I look forward to tomorrow 🌅
TW // mass shootings, racial reckoning, general trauma of the past year
Amidst all of the mass shootings, all of the trauma, all of the social and racial reckonings, all of the darkness that has taken hold of our society over the past year, today it really hit me: these are UNPRECEDENTED times. I mean, I know we all KNOW this on a practical level, but how many of us have truly internalized it? How many of us have truly sat with the reality of the current state of the world and digested it? We are, quite possibly, living through one of the most challenging times in the whole of human history.
I reiterate all of this not to be a downer, but to try and provide a small sliver of hope: you are a SURVIVOR. You have made it through (and continue to make it through, each and every day) circumstances that would’ve been unthinkable a few years ago, circumstances that generations of people never even had to consider, much less navigate through. You are strong and competent and capable, and when this is all said and done, you’ll be even stronger and more brilliant than you would’ve ever believed yourself to be.
I know it’s difficult. I know it can feel like everything around you is falling apart--both outwardly and inwardly. Believe me, I understand. I’ve been to some very dark places during this pandemic, places I was certain I’d never have to confront again. Monsters I’d pushed so far deep into myself, only to watch them reemerge with a vengeance. I get it.
But please, keep going. Keep pushing. Keep holding on. There are pinwheels of light beginning to dot the edges of this tunnel we’ve all been shambling through aimlessly. If you’ve made it this far, it’s for a reason. Your life is full of so much purpose. The world we’re about to re-enter is ours. It belongs to us, those of us who have pushed and fought and bled and cried and persevered, and we can make it into anything we so choose. We get to make the rules, now. We set the new precedents.
Pursue that idea. Write that book. Move to that new place. Take that class. Tell that person you love them. Make that album. Draw The Thing! Don’t hold back! Your passions, creativity, and ideas are so, so valid. They’re needed. If not now, then when? If not you, then who else? We can do anything we want now, because we’ve all been handed a fresh start. We have the opportunity to design the world as we see fit, as it’s always meant to be. Don’t run from your calling. Embrace it. We need you. Please don’t give up.
Always remember: this is not an end. It’s a beginning.
Sending you lots of love, from where I am to wherever you may be ❤️🌻
Julian Bashir understands being really nervous about making a bad first impression or coming off as desperate to be liked. When meeting new people, especially people you want to approve of you, you might worry a lot about your first impression, and how you appear to them. You might worry that you're coming off as too eager, or desperate for approval, instead of being likeable or professional. Remember that, although you might be worried about how you're coming across to people, chances are good that they're not being nearly as judgmental as you think they are. Most people tend to be forgiving, and they might even take your over-eagerness as being a flattering form of enthusiasm. Also, sometimes first impressions aren't perfect, but if you have a chance to make a second impression, that can be just as important. He wishes you luck with your work. :)

I always searched for home, but I didn't even know what home is.
It's not a place in this world and it's not a person.
Home is buried deep within these bones and it always was there.
I found it in my darkest hours and that's the point, isn't it?
Because I had to see the darkness to finally find, the light.
I finally know the road that will lead home.
I'm coming home.
Will Riker understands how hard it is to feel like you don't belong anywhere, but not knowing where to go to feel like you do belong. This is a really difficult feeling. You might feel lost, or like you're trying to go somewhere but you don't have a destination. Belonging can be tricky. Sometimes you end up belonging places without even trying, and other times you have to try very hard to make connections with places and people. Remember that a way to find places where you belong is to reach out to others, and to develop your relationships with people; maybe even try a few new things. It can be hard, and it can take effort, but it might help you find where you belong in the universe. He wishes you luck, and hopes you find somewhere to belong.
Things aren't always easy! I'm proud of you for trying your best. You're doing amazing! Keep going!
Wesley Crusher understands what it's like to be a bit afraid of growing up. Change can be scary, and getting older is one of the biggest changes you go through in life, so it's understandable to be afraid. Growing up isn't always easy, and there can be drawbacks to it, but remember that not everything about it is going to be frightening. As you get older, you begin to understand yourself a bit better, and that can be a really valuable thing. He hopes things are going well for you; hang in there. :)
B'Elanna Torres understands getting really frustrated by little things, like whistling or people tapping their fingers, and other things like that. Things that can seem very small to other people can affect you greatly, and really be irritating or frustrating, and set you on edge. It might seem easy to think that you're just being overdramatic or oversensitive, but hypersensitivity to little things is a valid thing to have, and it affects many people. Don't be too hard on yourself because seemingly small things affect you a lot. You just experience the world a bit differently than others, and, while it can be difficult to deal with, that's okay.
Real life, Doing it! 💪🌹🌹🌹🌹♥️💋🙏
i made a playlist, it’s just some calming/chill songs that you can either listen to or just have as background music - hope you like it🥰
Deanna Troi understands how scary "big" emotions can be. Sometimes you can feel things very deeply, and your emotions might even physically ache. Mood swings can also affect you a lot. All of this can be really difficult to deal with, and makes you feel a lack of control, which can be very frightening. Things can be difficult, so remember to treat yourself well when having these deep emotions. She believes in you that you can get through this. :)
