expressions&emotions

Jun grew up in a single-parent family as a child and began his career as a child actor shortly after his parents’ separation. Later on, he pretty much begged a man whom he got along very well with within his mother’s friend circle to be his father.

Using his character from a film for ideas on how to get the two together, Jun continuously tried to act as a matchmaker. Eventually, one day while carrying a tired out Jun on his back after a filming session, the man laughed and said, “Looks like it’s fate for Junhui to be my son.” and proposed to Jun’s mother.

After a couple months, Jun’s mother became pregnant with Yangyang. Jun was originally against the idea of having a younger sibling, fearing that his parents might not want him anymore. Just like that, young Jun became mentally stressed and genuinely troubled over the matter. But after working on set with the actor of his character’s little brother, Jun began to like the idea of having a younger sibling and became excited to have a younger brother.

Jun announced that he’d teach Yangyang how to act, and would tell Yangyang every interesting story that happened on set. His parents laughed and said that Yangyang couldn’t understand him, but Jun claimed, “Yangyang is smart! Don’t underestimate him just because he can’t speak right now, he actually understands everything!”

“Acting is not just expressing emotion in front of the camera, more importantly, the emotions must be real. Acting is just like living life…”

Bellamy: *is under a high stress life and death situation* y'all mind if I-
Clarke:
Bellamy:
Clarke: mind if you wha-
Bellamy: -have difficulty expressing my emotions especially to those I love due to having a large amount of pressure and responsibility placed upon me in many situations involving my loved ones from a young age

what would’ve made ikke snakk til meg better: isak giving sana the dandelion as a silent response, du er ikke alene

and we get sana staring at the flower, contemplating if she should pick it up, then isak quietly repeating his lame ass excuse, please, sana, help me? but actually he is trying to say, please let me help you

and sana takes the dandelion in between her fingertips, trying to calm her tides of emotion, then eventually nodding

anyway I just think that all human beings are broken and vulnerable and it’s really lame to pretend you’re not and scrutinize people for expressing their emotions by labeling them pathetic or attention-seeking, we would do well to learn from these people, they are braver than you, okay bye

Being raised in a military household meant that Eric had trouble expressing emotions

strongly agree | agree | neutral | disagree | strongly disagree

Eric was in touch with his feelings and he knew what he felt very deeply and strongly but within the context of the military family he was born and raised into, those feelings were discouraged, minimized, stifled and negated.  This is why he began to act out outside of his home in environments he felt he could exercise his own say over and right under his old man’s nose.

i see the word manipulation get thrown around a lot in the bpd community and while thats understandable i just wanted to give you all a small reminder

 

things that ARE manipulation are things like
  • never accepting responsibility for hurting others
  • guilt tripping others to get what you want
  • harassing others for not agreeing with you
  • intentionally diminishing other’s problems/difficulties by comparing them to your own
  • using other’s insecurities against them
things that are NOT manipulation include
  • expressing negative emotions to someone when you are hurt or distressed
  • not expressing emotions for the fear of bothering others
  • disagreeing with others and explaining your side of things
  • expressing your needs to those close to you
  • not socializing due to lack of energy or spoons

 

unhealthy behaviors (such as bottling things up, ignoring your problems, etc) definitely make situations harder and are things that need to be worked on asap, but unhealthy behaviors are not automatically manipulative just because someone has bpd

 

throwing around the wrong words can be extremely counter productive in this community, especially when there is already so much stigma and misunderstanding surrounding this disorder (not to mention that carelessly calling people manipulative and/or abusive for small things can end up devaluing what abuse and manipulation really mean)

 

TLDR; do your research and get to know the actual meaning of strong words before using them - words like ‘manipulation’ or ‘abuse’ are not for you to take lightly and use against people you just disagree or have a problem with

what do you like about moon in first? btw i love your blog <33

Hmmm I guess my favorite thing about that placement is that the people wear their heart on their sleeve which is pretty endearing. I mean, in a society where emotions/feelings are seen to be toxic and where emotional expression is perceived to be awkward by a lot of people, it’s just nice that Moon in the 1st natives have no choice but to have their emotions on display, almost at all times, even if they don’t want themselves to be exposed in that manner. It’s for the better. :-)

Hey everyone! This is my third attempt at the whole pen pal thing, I’ve met some pretty great people through this so why not give it another go.

My name is Cassandra and I am 18 years old, I’m also bisexual if that counts for anything.

ABOUT ME: I love being able to have deep conversations with other people. That’s when I am confident enough to express my emotions rather than just asking about hobbies. I have terrible anxiety that I’m still trying to manage, every day is difficult but I’m slowly starting to cope with it. If you want to talk about mental health/anxiety I’d love to be someone you can come to when you just need a distraction. Although I like having in depth conversations I’d also enjoy just telling each other about our days or rambling about our favorite cryptids and why the people on our favorite shows frustrate us so much *cough* SKAM *cough*

INTERESTS: movies movies and movies. Seriously I could go on about how much I love movies. I want to have a career in screenwriting so writing in general is a big thing for me. I don’t read too many books but my favorites are Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, Tell the Wolves I’m Home, and The Outsiders. My favorite TV shows are SKAM, Voltron, and Avatar the Last Airbender (I’m actually saving up for a tattoo inspired by this show, that’s how much I love this it). I’m not much of a theater person but Spring Awakening and Dear Evan Hansen are current faves.

PREFERENCES: around 16-19, that’s basically it really.

Hope to hear from you soon

PS: I have a college entrance exam soon so a friendly distraction would definately be welcome and appreciated 💙

when you talk about discovering / defining your gender identity as part of a process of self-discovery, what underlying beliefs are you basing your conclusions on?  when you describe & justify your gender identity by citing personality traits —

  • how & with whom you have relationships
  • how you experience & express emotion
  • likes & dislikes: clothing, activities, other people
  • et cetera

— what does that demonstrate about your world-view?  do you believe that “male” and “female” are two organic, essential categories of human personality?  two endpoints on a natural spectrum of human personality?  do you believe that your personality could only belong to someone male / female / nonbinary?  which (or which combination) of your traits is incompatible with maleness / femaleness?

Honestly? Rage comics are good. They’re a forgotten media that can be very cringy but some of them express emotions like nothing else

Moon in Cancer: having your heart rule your head, causing you to act out of pure emotion instead of rationalizing 

Moon in Leo: the fragility of your emotions and putting a tough front to guard them, scaring others away

Moon in Virgo: pushing yourself too hard, and fearing that if you stop your work will be for nothing

Moon in Libra: caring too much about the opinions of others, finding yourself trying to impress everyone

tips for the signs

aries: you need to relax and accept the fact that you won’t always be the best at everything. people will like you even if you mess up. also, life is not one giant competition - you don’t have to push every down to get to the top because that only leaves you alone in the end.

taurus: understand that losing a fight is okay. there is nothing wrong with wanting to get your opinion out there, but if you’re constantly shutting people down for the sake of winning then you’re going to end up hurting people. change the way you speak to others and people will learn to appreciate you more.

gemini: you will never be able to deal with your pain if you continue to mask it with sarcastic remarks and jokes. to feel pain is to be human, so allow yourself to express these emotions every now and then.

cancer: you’re not crazy for feeling all the emotions that you have, but shutting people out and refusing to speak about how you truly feel only causes you to lose people. people can’t read your mind and understand your true desires if you refuse to tell them, so you need to speak up.

leo: you have a way with words, but you tend to use it for deception rather than good. people would like you more if you stopped hiding behind an imagine all the time. also, your pride is a beast. you need to learn to tame it.

virgo: stop being so negative. putting yourself and others down does nothing to change the circumstances of the world you live in. if you continue to think badly about everything then people will eventually get tired of dealing with you. try to focus on the good things in life.

libra: you need to consider that not everyone understands that you’re flirty by nature. i understand you just want everyone to like you, but you need to become cautious of how others perceive you. you end up hurting a lot of people when they realize that this is just how you are and that you don’t actually feel anything for them.

scorpio:  stop refreshing your exes social media accounts every two seconds and learn to let go of the past - it’s the past for a reason. you really need to understand that it is okay to let go because you only hurt yourself when you continue to carry the pain around with you. so, learn to forgive others (and yourself) and move on. oh and hurting others won’t ease your pain.

sagittarius: life gets dull sometimes, but bringing chaos down upon yourself to ease this boredom is never a good idea. also, randomly cutting people off because you’re bored makes a lot of people end up hating you. learn to appreciate the people around you more and stop pushing them away for the next best thing.

capricorn: you’re afraid of being alone but you continue to shut people out. i know you’re scared of what might happen if people get to close to you, but you need to understand that pushing people away and building up incredibly high walls causes nothing but harm and loneliness. it’s okay to let people in.

aquarius: just like capricorn, you tend to cut ties before you can get hurt. but you need to understand that not everyone has bad intentions. let people in and experience the happiness that they can provide you. you deserve good things.

pisces: there is a difference between being in love and simple infatuation - you will save yourself from the pain once you realize this. and it’s okay to be selfish every now and then - you don’t have to put everyone else first.

Voltron characters as shit my friends and I have said/stuff I found on the internet
  • Shiro: one day i'm going to fall over and never get back up again. Because I'll be dead.

  • Lance: An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but if the doctor's cute, screw the fruit.
  • Pidge: *hits someone with a calculator* bet you weren't counting on that
  • Allura: I'm not mean i'm just brutally honest. The truth hurts. Here's a band aid.
  • Hunk: YOU'RE SUCH AN UNNECESSARY MOVIE SEQUEL
  • Matt: *gets blue paint on shirt* It's bluetiful
  • Zarkon: I should have you beheaded for such disrespect!

  • Coran: Stand back kids, this schools insurance policy doesn’t cover blown minds
Reassurance for the Signs

Aries: You aren’t too excited for actually showing your emotions when you feel them. You’re strong for being able to express them the way you do.

Taurus: You aren’t boring for not wanting to take risks. It’s perfectly fine to want to understand what’s happening next, to know before making decisions that may have negative consequences. Not only that, but sticking to an opinion doesn’t make you irrational- it proves that you stand for what you believe in.

Gemini: You aren’t bothering people when you talk about what makes you happy. Your smile is gorgeous and what you have to say is fascinating.

Cancer: It’s okay to sometimes be upset. It’s okay to have bad days; days where you don’t want to be creative or optimistic. You don’t have to be happy and smiling and laughing all the time- it simply isn’t possible.

Leo: You aren’t a jerk for having the ability to love yourself or for wanting others to compliment you. We all deserve appreciation, but we all have insecurities and need reassurance from time to time. Some people just refuse to admit it.

Virgo: You aren’t a drag for wanting to point out mistakes. It’s okay to crave perfection, and it’s okay to want things to be just right. That’s normal.

Libra: You aren’t weak for avoiding conflict or wanting peace. Fighting isn’t always a good thing, and you understand that. You aren’t desperate or needy for wanting to be surrounded by friends, either.

Scorpio: There’s nothing wrong with having difficulty trusting people. There isn’t a problem with wanting to know others before letting them know you. Vulnerability can be terrifying- and you can see that.

Sagittarius: You’re not shallow just because you have difficulty staying in long relationships. You aren’t a bad person if your future plans don’t involve settling down with a partner or partners, and having a bunch of kids.

Capricorn: You aren’t a monster for not wanting to express emotions. It’s easier to deal with fact only, and to avoid emotions entirely. They can be difficult, and oftentimes the truth is easier to deal with.

Aquarius: You aren’t broken for not being able to understand everyone’s emotions. Feelings are confusing; not everyone can understand them perfectly, and there’s no magical way to figure them out.

Pisces: You’re not delusional for wanting to imagine better things instead of facing reality all the time. It’s okay. We all should take time to make ourselves feel good, even if that means being unrealistic.

Moon Signs 3

Moon in Aries: You have instinctive reactions to people, and you immediately form your judgments. Your enthusiasm is easy to elicit, as is your anger. When you are in doubt, you immerse yourself in the activity. You are action-oriented, impetuous and determined, but you can also be selfish, irritable, impatient and abrupt. You make your needs known. When you were a child, your mother had to react to your impetuous demands. It was necessary. As a result, you have perceived him as a dynamic person. She taught you, for example, to be independent.

Moon in Taurus: On the emotional level, you are cautious, trustworthy and enjoyable. You react slowly, but once you have decided to devote yourself to something, it’s for the long run. You are stable, but obstinate. In case of doubt, you refuse to move in the least centimeter. But you suffer in times of change. When you were a child, you desperately sought the safety of a present and caring parent. It’s likely your mother tried to be that for you.

Moon in Gemini: You are fickle, agitated, dashing, and you have a clear speech. You express your feelings with spirit and intelligence. But you take a basically cerebral approach to your emotional problems. Though you tend to worry, analyzing your own reactions brings you a dose of calm, and you adapt easily to change. As a child, you were agitated, curious and easily distracted.

Moon in Cancer: The Moon governs the sign of Cancer, and therefore no matter what else happens in your card, you are a lunar person: changing mood, receptive, sentimental, and supremely conscious of the continual flow of your emotions. Tears coqme easily, and the past exercises a magnetic influence on you. You are probably very affectionate and remarkably committed to your loved ones.

Moon in Leo: The Moon in Leo adds heat, luster and exuberance to any solar sign. You consider yourself an outstanding number. Although your pride is easily crumpled, you are generally confident and happy. But when things do not go as you wish, you conceal the doubts you have about yourself and your ambivalence by a firework of emotions.

Moon in Virgo: Shy in terms of emotions, you prefer to repress them rather than express them. You try to be discreet, and you may find it difficult to cope with major problems. Instead, you divert your attention by focusing on details or working so hard that you barely have time to think. You are industrious, you have practical sense and you are helpful.

Moon in Libra: You are gracious, kind, romantic and diplomatic. You avoid vulgarity and try to express your feelings in a balanced and reasonable manner. Love and relational life are indispensable to your well-being, and you can barely imagine life without a partner. But you also enjoy serenity, and you will do what is necessary to achieve this elusive goal.

Moon in Scorpio: Passionate and easily crumpled, you are a complicated person. Stubborn, intense, and sometimes self-destructive, you express your feelings indirectly and you often try to keep them secret, which may require a certain amount of manipulation. You avoid confrontation in terms of emotions: you feel that it is safer.

Moon in Sagittarius: You have a philosophic attitude, you are frank, cheerful and generous. Well-intentioned and idealistic, you are also a risk taker who depends on his independence and will do anything to preserve it. When a problem arises, you tend to look for rational explanations. It is easier for you to take action than emotions. You may believe that you are always right, even if it is not, which can inadvertently hurt you. But your optimism eventually comes back, and you embark on a new adventure.

Moon in Capricorn: You are stable, reserved and well disciplined. You know your limits. You may be pessimistic and sad because, in one way or another, the typical joy of childhood has passed you by. Reserved and complexed, you feel more stable and calm when you succeed. The exuberance of feelings and the dramas of other people make you anxious. But in times of crisis, you take responsibility. When you are in control, you experience a sense of authority and control that you try to maintain with great effort.

Moon in Aquarius: In the depths of yourself, you consider yourself a sort of Crusader or pillar of good works of charity. You like to think that you are able to make a difference in the world. Whatever else you see in your natal chart, you are attracted by what is original and non-conformist. It is difficult for you to express your emotions and you can give people the impression of being reserved. In reality, you do not know what to do with your feelings, and you are trying to pretend you do not.

Moon in Pisces: You are gentle, sentimental, influential and compassionate. But each emotional wave puts you down. Extremely sensitive and easily injured, you also possess a very fine intuition. When you act upon it, you are well. Although you may be dreamy and sometimes lack practical sense, it is imperative that you protect yourself emotionally.

anonymous asked:

This is my first time on your blog buddy and im not criticizing you for a blog but about posting random shit about your life, is there something lacking that creates the need to share pointless events with strangers? Also, blogging publicly opens you up to comments. I commented, from the rest of your blog you don't seem immature unlike that tag. Its pretty on par with "mess with me and my daddy will sue you" "hit me and I'll own your stupid school" What would you actually have done to the school

This seems to be your first time on the Internet. Welcome! The particular website you are on is Tumblr dot com, a “microblogging site”. A blog is a series of separate, updated posts by one individual or organization, typically informal, often written as a kind of journal. Some blogs have particular themes, while others may contain content that is only loosely related. Blogs usually describe the sort of content one can expect from them in an “about” section, with phrases like “This is ultimately a personal blog - I post about my life and things that interest me.” It is reasonable to expect that the owner of that blog will likely post about their life and things that interest them.

If that sort of content alarms or upsets you, do not despair! There are many other types of websites. There are forums on which you can discuss a single subject of interest to you with strangers, sites and apps for browsing beautiful photographs, and wikis that contain publicly-editable encyclopedia entries on a nearly unfathomable breadth of topics. There are even countless websites devoted to hosting pictures, videos, and fiction broadly considered sexually arousing.

With a few exceptions, all of these websites are accessible to you to visit at your leisure. Chances are you’ll find something you like - if you’re having trouble, search engines like Google.com will help you find content relevant to your interests by searching for key words or phrases. And if you don’t like the content you find on one site? Leaving is as easy as closing the page. This freedom of passage means that interpersonal interaction is entirely voluntarily, so, if you were so inclined, you could have exclusively constructive or meaningful conversations with people.

If you decide that blogging is something you like and wish to spend more time on Tumblr dot com, you’ll eventually encounter other individuals constructing posts exclusively using words. These are called “text posts”. Even if you follow a blog, you don’t have to read these unless they interest you. If you * do* decide to read them, you should know that humans use certain writing conventions to convey ideas and feelings through typed words. They may employ common devices such as hyperbole, sarcasm, and rhetorical questions to express an emotion or make a point. You can almost always discern whether these things are meant literally using context clues. For example, because time seems to move in a linear fashion, it may be understood that a statement akin to “you wanna fucking go?” in reference to a subject that is not present or in the intended audience of the question, in response to a situation now in the past, is not a literal invitation to a violent physical contest.

Dramatic overstatements and absurdity are used on the Internet for comedic effect. For example, other bloggers might make comments like “call my goldfish cishet and I will literally throw you into the sun”. This is, of course, not meant to be understood literally - humor is derived from the preposterous imagery. If someone were to respond to this statement by unironically and hostilely explaining that goldfish do not have complex theories of gender and the original poster would not have the strength to throw someone forcefully enough to break Earth’s gravitational pull, that would be humorous for a very different reason. Someone would likely make a second response using a photograph of the character Dwight Schrute from the American television series “The Office”. Another example of absurdity-as-comedy you might encounter on Tumblr dot com is someone jokingly taking an insincere and aggressive question at face value and answering with a lengthy, overly-detailed explanation.
