and foes

let’s talk about a ptsd thing that’s called sense of foreshortened future. i don’t see anyone ever talking about it here and i think that it’s important that people know that what they experience is nothing but another symptom of their mental illness.

So what is it?

Basically, sense of foreshortened future is a feeling or a belief that for some reason you won’t have a long and fullfilling life. You feel like you will die soon – or sooner than expected – and therefore you shouldn’t make any long-term plans. You try to avoid long-term relationships, you don’t have any career plans, reaching your birthday - hell, sometimes even managing to surivive the week surprises you. 

You feel like you’ll never have a normal life because you’re not only broken beyond repair but also can’t trust anyone anymore. It is an incredibly depressing feeling that makes you feel like there’s no point in… anything, really? Every activity becomes dull and pointless and you don’t know what drags you though life at this point.

I know it won;t make the feeling go away but I want you to know that this feeling is NOT a reflection of reality. You’re not broken beyond repair and you will have a normal happy life if you work on your recovery. making plans is not pointless. You deserve to be happy and you will be happy. Don’t let PTSD and its symptoms convince you otherwise.

Things I absoulty love about the relationship of Moon and River Butterfly

1) He calls her “moon-pie”

2) River married into HER family, and not the traditional way around.

3) Moon knows, and doesn’t really care that her family doesn’t like River and vise-versa

4)They are are actually a super strong power couple who could beat you down in the blink an eye. She’s called “Moon the Undaunted” for a reason and River wrestles wild animals with his bare hands.

5) He calls her “MOON-PIE”

6) They come from different worlds but still love each other. River was a warrior Prince and Moon’s family are posh magic users.

7) Young River was an adorable mess.

8) “I cant believe I just called the queen "pal” “

9) Moon kept the apology meat

10) River was the only one who didnt baby her and insisted that she had a voice in the whole "peace treaty or war” matter

9) Moon probably likes River better than the other dude because he doesn’t treat her like a frail damsel.

10) HE CALLS HER MOON-PIE

11) Moon doesnt mind her husband being so dependent on her.

12) River automatically reaches over for moon in the morning.

13) River tries to party away his sadness because he misses Moon

14) Moon is worried about River, but is trying to focus on protecting Star.

15) “Of course I love my husband!
And Im worried sick!”

16) As soon River sees Star is okay after being reunited, he asks for his wife.

17) He CaLls HeR “MoOn-PiE”!!!!!

Let’s all just appreciate Jackie for a minute.

She’s a polarizing character for Starco fans; you either love her or hate her, or a little in-between.

BUT. You can’t argue that she’s sacrificed so much for Marco.

I mean, look at her. This is the face of the girl that’s:

  • Spent most of her relationship silently coping with Marco and Star being *so* close with each other,
  • Had her boyfriend care more about his experiences with Star than her own,
  • And lastly, had to come to terms that her boyfriend would probably be better off in another dimension with another girl, without her.

Jackie knows him more than anyone else. She knows that he’s still, for the most part, happy being with her.

But she also knows how all of this is going to end. And instead of milking their relationship until it runs dry to keep him to herself, she gently sends Marco off. Notice how she never blamed or even referenced Star for anything during the break-up, or blamed Marco for his interest towards Mewni or Star - even when, deep down, she knows this was all because of Marco’s potential feelings for Star. She doesn’t want to cause blame, drama or unnecessary hurt for Marco, Star, or herself. That’s just not how she is.

Jackie’s willing to make the awful, painful decision to break-up with him — no doubt will she be heartbroken, crying for several days because of it — all so Marco can experience a better relationship and much happier life in Mewni. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is.

For all the Starco fans that are just glad that Marco’s single and Jackie’s out of the way, at least be grateful for her. Jackie’s given him so much emotional support over the three months they’ve been together. She’s strengthened him and given him the confidence and self-worth he needed. No doubt will Marco take on board what he’s learned through his relationship if/when Starco happens.

Thanks Jackie. Stay amazing.
