so this cis boy on kik says to me “you’re really pretty but without so much makeup on I can kinda tell you’re a man :/ sorry to be the one to break this to you”
DO YOU THINK I DON’T KNOW THIS FGS
DO YOU THINK I DON’T DOUBT AND HATE MYSELF FOR IT DAILY
DO YOU THINK IT’S A CHOICE, HOW YOUR FACE IS
AND DO YOU REALLY, REALLY THINK
YOU ARE THE FIRST PERSON TO THINK OR SAY THIS…?
it’s just basic respect, you know? don’t tell trans women they “look kinda like a dude” and don’t tell trans men they “look kinda like a girl”… I wouldn’t have thought it would be hard to realise that saying this might hurt their feelings, or damage their confidence, which in case you don’t know, ISN’T USUALLY VERY GREAT TO BEGIN WITH…
sorry for the rant but I’ve just had this guy’s words in my head all day and it’s just so dumb yet somehow still really got to me :(
About a year and a half ago I hated taking full body pictures because I didn’t have much confidence but One day my friends decided that I needed to take more pictures because they thought I dressed nice and that I was pretty & from that day on they became like my personal photographers (all pics taken by them). Idk what happened that day but from there on my confidence has grown tremendously and they can’t get me to leave them alone 😂😂 what can I say I love the camera.
Happy Big Girl Appreciation Day 💕
I hope somewhere out there a big girl finds her light, her confidence & some good ass friends 😁
There is this boy at my school who I think is the most attractive boy in the whole universe. He has tan skin that just seems to maintain its color no matter what time of year it is. His hair is a chocolate curly brown, that he runs his hands through at least 200 times a day. His eyes are a caramel-brownish shade that I truly melt into and am lost for words when ever I look into them. But he also has this laugh that is literally one of a kind, and not in a cute way, its high pitched and almost girly but its still music to my ears and always brings a smile to my face. When he talks to his friends, he always makes the funniest jokes and, when he needs to be, nice/helpful to them.
All my friends say that he isn’t attractive and has no like able qualities, and they just cant understand why I like him. I can never seem to figure out why they don’t think he is attractive or funny, it literally blows my mind.
But to be completely honest, I’ve never even had a conversation with him. Im not even friends with the people he’s friends with. I dont think I will ever be able to work up the courage to talk to him and tell him all the things I love about him.
So he will never know that while his friends are mocking his laugh, I’m falling for it. Or when he is smiling, I want nothing more than to be the one making him smile. Never will he know that when he runs his hands through his hair, its my dream to run mine through it too.
So if you are ever thinking that nobody will ever love you because you haven’t been asked out on a date or a stupid boy in high school hasn’t confessed his undying love for you, don’t think that someone doesn’t think of you as an amazing attractive person.
While you’re sitting in class laughing with your friends, someone may be falling in love with the sound of your laugh(even if its a funny one), or the way your eyes light up when your truly happy, or even the way you run your hands through your hair.
Don’t ever think your not good enough just because some boy/girl hasn’t told you how amazing you are.
Please, love your body. It does so much for you – it carries you from place to place, it lets you make your thoughts into actions, it lets you laugh and dance and hug and have fun. Give your body the right food, drink plenty of water, exercise, but if your body tells you it needs a break, give it one. And please, don’t hate your body for the way it looks – it allows you to do so much, please give it nothing but gratitude, as its beauty warrants.
understand that loving yourself is a long process. it’s okay to be just okay with yourself some days and upset others, as long as you realizes it’s a process. all the negative thoughts are just little road blocks that you’ll definitely get past because you’re strong and deserve that love.
How To Stop Doubting Yourself: Aka Being a Confident Witch
This is something I see and even experience all the time. Tell me if this sounds familiar; You’re scrolling through tumblr, and come across this wand that someone hand made.. It’s beautiful, carved and engraved, with intricate copper wire wrappings and even a perfect, seamlessly attached quartz point to top it off. You make googly eyes at it, then look over at your wand, a meager oak stick you found in your yard and painted crude symbols on. Your heart breaks a little and you think to yourself, “Maybe if my wand looked like that I’d be a better/awesome/powerful/____ witch”
If the above scenario brings back memories full of tears and angst, then this post is for you. I present; Five Ways To Stop Doubting Yourself and Your Practice. Read on witches!
GET OFF TUMBLR
Yes it’s an awesome resource with tons of knowledge and a great way to connect and share ideas. It’s also a great way to waste time, distract yourself, and make yourself feel bad all at once. Stop looking up aesthetic posts and pictures of other peoples altars.
Focus on what you can do, not what you can’t.
If you keep thinking about everything you can’t do (I can’t cast this spell, I can’t make this charm), you’re going to limit and hold yourself back. Focus instead on what you ARE able to do. Don’t look for a spell online or in a book, and be torn down when you don’t have that 5000 year old rare herb and the 323rd hair from a camels thigh. Instead, think about what you do have, and how you can use that to make your spell work!
Also side note that you cana literally subsitute just about any ingredient in a spell or charm for something else. So just because you don’t have rose hips doesn’t mean you can’t cast that love spell. It just means you should use rose petals or even rosemary instead.
Start forming you own craft!
So often we get discouraged because we find a path that we think will suit us, and we start to go down in, only to discover that parts of it just don’t click. You don’t believe in this tenet, you don’t feel right when you use this method. Instead, figure out what you are comfortable with, what you do like, and what you’re capable/willing to do, and build a practice that is unique and entirely your own! Not only will this benefit you, but if you ever get the point where you’re comfortable sharing it, then it’s going to be you that others are sighing, trying to learn from, instead of vice versa!
Stop Thinking You Aren’t Good Enough
There is no rule book to being a witch. There’s no code of conduct for practicing witchcraft. There’s absolutely no standard, and there’s no bar that you have to meet. If you practice, study, experiment, dip your toes in, or even just side eye witchcraft curiously, you can call yourself a witch. That’s all there is to it. And you’re doing a great job at it.
Don’t forget that witchcraft is 110% customizable
You don’t have to believe in a certain idea, or practice a specific form, or use herbs, or work with spirits, or use animal parts, or do divination. You can make it whatever you want and that’s awesome because no one else practices the way you do. Your witchcraft is entirely unique to you and that’s FUCKING SWEET
