attempting-to-be-helpful

Dreams are like flowers,
something, someone or an ocassion, planted them.

You water them with hope.
They grow, stronger and stronger,
till it’s finally time to bloom.

But sometimes they don’t last long,
they were meant to come to this world
through you, and go away quickly,
back to the enormous universe.

Maybe your expectations were not fullfiled,
but that doesn’t mean you can’t call that dream yours.
Even if it was for a short period of time,
that dream was inside you. 
And you made it flourish.
—  It made you into who you are, it lead you to a new seed from the stars.
Talk to me, tatted beauties

I’m getting my tattoo tomorrow, and I expect to be in the chair for about three hours, with a second appointment for color in two weeks. My only existing tattoo is about 2.5 inches square and was gotten on an impulse on a road trip when I was 18, so talk to me, those of you with larger pieces. How did you prepare before the appointment, and how did you take care of it afterwards? It’s going to take up most of my left upper arm - how do I sleep when I usually sleep on that side? Did you do anything unusual before, during or after your appointment that really helped?

Why yes, I’m attempting to manage my anxiety by planning things in exacting detail.

Hello! First of all thank you for posting these recipe and tips I have started my first attempt at this diet/ healthy living journey and it's been a huge help. Do you have any tips about avoiding take out Food? I flat share and they love eating take out food and when I'm with them I always end up having some to. If I say no they get upset :( Thank you! Have a good day

Maybe just eat a small amount like a couple bites or plan it into your calories

anonymous asked:

The line "You aren’t supposed to skip like that.” really jumped out at me. is this something that Shiro/Sam have established rules about?

Oh yes, but it’s less for psychological reasons and more because Shiro has trouble with the physical sensations for hunger after his captivity (Sam and Matt do as well, but less so: they were on more of a schedule than Shiro was, due to their work).  So not skipping is an attempt to help form habits until he’s better at feeling hunger again

me in my bed at 3am: keith didn’t even attempt to help lance up he just took his hand and sat down and they kept holding hands for that entire scene and hand holding is pretty gay if you ask me

Please explain to me why Sakura’s feelings are romantic and Naruto’s are not.

Both:

- Wanted Sasuke to come back to the village

- Cried over Sasuke

- Talked about how much they cared for Sasuke

- Missed Sasuke

Sakura:

- GAVE UP trying to save him because she didn’t get his point of view

- Tried to kill him

- Acted more like a fangirl than a love interest

- Wasn’t really willing to sacrifice much for him. Although, to be fair, she did help him in the Forest of Death and maybe attempted to help a couple times. 

Naruto:

- Literally never gave up on Sasuke, even after he had made his intentions clear. 

- Never tried to kill Sasuke, fought to protect himself when necessary. 

- Saw Sasuke as a real human being, versus a trophy, and actually cared about him feeling lonely. 

- Was willing to die with Sasuke, let himself get beaten up over Sasuke, fight dangerous enemies like Orochimaru, go against the wishes of his beloved village, etc. 

- Spent FIVE hours straight thinking about Sasuke.

- Left his home for three years to become stronger, for the purpose of rescuing Sasuke. When he got home he brushed off their team photo and said, “Sasuke, I’m home.” Uh..gay. 

- Clutched his heart and whispered Sasuke’s name when he saw a shooting star…nothing more needs to be said about that.

- Released Karuma’s power for the first time because of Sasuke.

- Had a panic attack at the thought of Sasuke dying.

- Was the one whose feelings had the most impact on Sasuke.

Please, tell me what I’m missing here. The only advantage Sakura seems to have is a vagina, which Sasuke has shown no interest in. 

What DID is and isn't

Dissociative identity disorder (and another catch-all dissociative disorder) are the only disorders that create systems/alters. Personality disorders/psychosis do not create systems/alters. “Multiple personality disorder” is incorrect and many will find it offensive, it’s not used anymore.

PTSD (more specifically, CPTSD) is required for DID. Everyone with DID has experienced repeated severe trauma before the age of about 8. Dissociation is a core component of DID. To be diagnosed with DID, two or more separate personality states (or alters) must periodically front (or be “in control”). These alters are formed through severe trauma and are generally made to protect the body in some way. Some of these alters are child alters, who are stuck in a state of severe childhood trauma- this is never acceptable to make fun of. The majority of people with DID will attempt suicide, largely due to poor education and help for the disorder. People with DID are no more likely to commit crimes than anyone else.

Actually, you have likely met people with DID before and not noticed. Dissociation is the primary symptom, not switching alters, and typically switches are done without great distinction and few signs.

Sybil is not good representation. Split is not good representation. If you have questions about DID, you are welcome to direct them here.

Split is offensive and is capitalizing off of child abuse and resorting to awful, outdated tropes to horrify an audience at the expense of an entire community. This is not okay. Do not support Split.

“Y/N Barnes?” the nurse’s voice, however kind it may have seemed to everyone else in the room, sent shivers down your spine. You weren’t ready for this. You didn’t want to be here. In fact, you could think of several places you’d rather be at the moment, but you tried to keep a neutral expression as you stood.

“Do you want me to come in with you? Or I can just wait out here. Whichever you’d prefer.” Steve asked, giving your hand a reassuring squeeze.

Nodding, you squeezed back tightly, “Please. I feel like I’m either going to puke. Or pass out. Maybe both. I don’t really know.”

A/N: This first chapter is a bit shorter than the rest will be. It’s mostly just setting the stage for the rest of the story. As always, feedback is appreciated! 


“Please, Barnes, we need this. You know how successful we were the last time we worked together,” your father pleaded.

Mr. Barnes sighed, running a hand through his silver hair, shaking his head as he sat behind his desk, pouring two glasses of whiskey and passing one to your father. His office was at the top of the most prominent building in New York. The views spanned across the entire city, which was particularly beautiful at this time of day. The sun was just setting, the lights from each building helping to illuminate the skyline. “This is quite different from last time, Charlie. You’re asking for a lot, you know. Your business is going under. We both know that. You’re telling me you’ll go bankrupt in a year, but you want me to take over the business?”
