If someone mocks you or makes you feel badly for having trouble with getting an erection or being unable to achieve an erection when you want one, you need to run.
People have problems with erections for such a wild variety of reasons and you should never be made to feel badly because your body isn’t cooperating. It has zero impact on your masculinity and anyone who shames you for an extremely normal thing doesn’t deserve you in their life.
The post-breakup emotions had washed you clean, there were no more what ifs circling your mind, no more tears flowing, no more breakdowns or questions on what went wrong.
It was all over – so you thought.
It was in the moment that you recognised the familiar head of waves in the same restaurant that you were immersed with all the feelings you thought you left on the bedroom floor, along with with the whisky.
You feel your body go numb, for a moment you can’t even pry your eyes from his figure, his figure bundled in a black coat with a scarf dangling loosely around his neck– The scarf that you brought as a joke because he can never manage to wear scarfs in the correct manner.
You pull yourself away from the trans that he pulled you into, your eyes waving towards your friend in front of you, her wine scraping her lips as she side-eyes Harry. “Thought he was in London.” She murmurs as she makes her gaze further obvious,
“Stop staring. He was in London.” ..“I guess he came back to New York for something.” You shrug, driving the sparkling wine down your throat to satisfy the stinging nerves arising in you as the presence of Harry grows more intense. She rolls her eyes, placing her wine glass down on the table, her bluish-green eyes narrowing down on you, “More like he came back for you.” You shake your head and scoff,. There is no way he flew from London to come to New York right before a snow storm is meant to hit, not to mention he is the one who broke off the relationship. If anything, he is presumably praying that the two of you don’t cross paths.
It’s Complicated (Jason Blossom Imagine Jason x Reader- Part 1)
Request: I swear You are the best writer ever. I loved your Jason Blossom imagine, do you think you could write more? It was absolutely beautiful, maybe one where Jason and the reader were the longest lasting couple and this new girl tries to break them up, so they get into a fight but Cheryl fixes them. Thank you so much, I loved your imagine so so much ❤️❤️
Words Count: 1990 (shiiiiiiiiit)
A/N: Whoever wrote this request, you are adorable and your compliment made me happy, thank you thank you thank you!!!! <3
Your eyes flutter open to a sunbeam dancing across your face. You groan and turn your ahead away from the light. You feel your body slowly sink back into sleep but your phone dings a happy tune, alerting you of a new message. You roll your body and fumble for your phone on your bedside table. Squinting from the brightness coming off your phone, you open the message. You smile at your phone when you realise it’s from your boyfriend, Jason Blossom. You sit up and read the message. JJ: Time to wake up, I’ll pick you up today!” You click your phone off and slowly rise from your bed.
You had showered, gotten dress and were currently eating breakfast with your parents. You heard the front door open and saw Jason walk in. “Good morning Mr and Mrs (Y/L/N), how has your morning been so far?” Jason asks politely. You parents smile at Jason “Very well Jason and yours?” Your Dad asks. “As good as a Monday morning can be Sir.” Jason say, he walks up to you and kisses your cheek. “You ready to go?” He asks, slinging your bag around his shoulder. You nod, kissing your parents on the cheek before heading out the front door with Jason. He chucks your bag in the back seat. “Why hello there beautiful, how are you today?” Cheryl asks from the front seat. You laugh and hug her hello. “I’m fine, how are you Cheryl?” You ask, pulling away from the red-haired girl. She grimaces and you nod your head, understanding that it was something she didn’t want to talk about. You reach over to open your door but Jason’s hand gets there first, opening it for you. You smile up at him and he smiles back down at you. “Hi you.” He says, cupping your jaw and planting a quick kiss on your lips. “Hi, how was football practice?” You ask, climbing into the backseat of his red car. “It was okay, think I might have bent something that is not supposed to bend.” He says, making his way to the front seat. He starts up the car and pulls out into the street. Concern fills your body, showing on your face. Jason notices your face and reaches back to hold your hand. “Babe, it’s fine. It was kidding.” He says. You raise your eyebrows at him and he laughs. “Mostly.” He corrects. Cheryl looks at her twin and then back to you. “You two are so cute, I still can’t believe you guys have been dating since you were 13.” She states before turning her attention back to Jason. They talk about homework and what they were doing after school. You close your eyes and lean your head back on the head rest behind you. You feel your body drift off into a light sleep.
In light of April & autism acceptance month I thought I’d make a post about how autistic people communicate, because understanding and accepting our communication styles is one of the most important parts of autism acceptance. The things listed here are from my own experience and from information I have gathered from talking to other autistic people, it is by no means exhaustive. If you want to add something on I have missed feel free :+)
Lack of eye contact doesn’t mean we aren’t engaged, oftentimes maintaining eye contact is actually more distracting than not.
Our body language is different. Trying to assume how we feel from your knowledge of body language will often lead you to wrong conclusions.
Our tone does not always indicate our feelings, it’s often more telling to listen to the words we are saying themselves then try to guess what our tone means
We will likely have difficulty reading your body language and tone. The subtleties of communication don’t come easy to us, if you want us to understand what you are feeling or offer support it is most useful to communicate your feelings thoughts and needs directly.
Things we say may come off as rude or overly blunt, even if it is not intended this way.
We have varying degrees of understanding sarcasm. Some of us struggle to understand any of it, some of us actively understand and employ it and everything in between. We are also prone to literal-mindedness in general meaning we may have trouble with taking other forms of jokes or figurative speech literally.
Our communication abilities often vary with things like stress and sensory input. For example, under little stress or a good amount of sensory input I can communicate enough to explain detailed thoughts as in this post, form sentences and employ tone and cadence to my speech. At varying levels of sensory input I may begin to speak in monotone, take several minutes to put together a single sentence, or be unable to access most of my vocabulary aside from sounds and simple words like “yes” and “no”.
It is very common for autistic people to empathize by comparing similar experiences. (for example: person a: “My dog got sick, I’m worried about him.” autistic person: “Oh, my cat got sick last year too.”) People who do not empathize like this often see it as ‘one-upmanship’ when the intent is only to empathize or express sympathy.
We may interrupt you before you’re done speaking. It’s very common for autistic people to have difficulty telling when other people are finished speaking. If we interrupt you it is almost never out of rudeness but we genuinely cannot tell when is the right time to speak.
We may occasionally take over the conversation especially with info-dumping. When I info-dump I’m very excited and I feel like I can barely keep the information I want to talk about down. Being so excited, I tend to ramble for a long time, elaborating unimportant details as I am unaware to whether the listener is bored or even listening. I’m not saying you have to stay completely engaged and remember every detail but at very least don’t get angry with an autistic person for their infodumping.
A lot of autistic people also have auditory processing problems. This means that what you say might not register for a few moments or you might have to repeat yourself. Please be patient with somebody who has poor auditory processing, as it’s not really something we can help.
If you are asking the autistic person to do a task or activity of any sort (giving them directions to somewhere, asking them to come to a party, asking them to help you fold your laundry) we usually need very clear and precise instructions or plans.
These are all common parts of autistic communication styles but it’s important to remember not every autistic person is the same or will have all of these traits. We are as varied in personality, thoughts, and behaviors as allistic people, but we are tied together by shared experiences. Being aware of these traits and unlearning them as inherently bad communication styles is helpful to autistic people as a whole, but if there’s a specific autistic person in your life you want to better communicate with, the best thing you can do is ask them how you can do that and honestly discuss differences in communication and needs to best understand each other.
You deserve flowers on your doorstep and coffee in the morning. You deserve notes left on your dashboard and ice cream at 3am. You deserve honesty everyday and to be kissed every hour. You deserve to be reminded how beautiful you are.
If you look at your body, you will find billions of living beings who depend on you. Every cell in your body is a living being that depends on you…you can provide what they need; you can love all those living beings, or you can be so mean to them.
LV - Level of Violence, my favorite concept in the game.
it really does happen like that - the more you hurt others, the easier it is for you to hurt them. you might feel regret at first, but it’ll soon turn into something normal, maybe something exciting to do. it’s shown so well in the text you get after choosing to punch the dummy based on your level. (thank you @saveloadreset for these!)
%* (You tap the dummy with& your fist.)/
* (You feel bad.)/% %* (You hit the dummy& lightly.)/
* (You don’t feel like& you learned anything.)/% %* (You sock the dummy.)/
* (Who cares?)/% %* (You punch the dummy at& full force.)/
* (Feels good.)/%%
after you’ve had your fun, you’ll take responsibility for your own actions.
~ shut your eyes and open them again. yes you were just asleep for 12 hours. does it feel like you have slept? no… yeah, you are still tired. and now it’s time to get up, but its so hard, you like the room dark, and it can feel like dragging the sea with you… because your body feels so hard to define… it leaks into everything… so you feel everything, it can be like having third degree burns… a sensitivity is pronounced it can change the way you see the word… for moments or months… every touch can hurt, some can feel like heaven, but the exposure is so raw, it doesn’t take much to be wounded and worn.. but life is a dream and a cascading melody… there is the breath of angels and simplistic wisdom.. it seems like you have done this so many times before
1. Light a candle, or get new oils for your plug ins, new wax for your melters, ect. Scent plays a big role in relaxation.
2. Put your hair up (or take it down if it’s been up all day and give your scalp a really good rub. Shake out that hair!).
3. Buy a new pillow. Some of us don’t change out our pillows as often as we should, and this can result in neck pain and trouble sleeping. Today I found a pack of two Serta Gel Memory Foam pillows for $18 at Big Lots! They’re so nice. A bit of a splurge for me, but worth it.
4. Brew a fresh pot of coffee, or your favorite cup of tea and drink it very slowly. Really take your time to taste it, smell it, and enjoy it.
5. Listen to your body. If you feel you should take a nap, and you are able to, then take a small nap. If you feel thirsty, get some water. Don’t deny yourself.
6. Pet your cat/dog/hamster/bird/whatever pet you have. If you don’t have a pet, stroke something soft and cozy. Petting your pet is a stress reliever, and it feels good to hear them purr or look at you with gratitude (that blinky look that dogs get.. so cute).
7. Wash your face, use a toner, and then some moisturizer. Get all that makeup off and let your skin breathe! Or if you’ve been bare faced for a while, glam yourself up, just because! Admire your fine self. Yas.
8. Get a blanket with some weight to it (like a quilt, or a big, poofy, downy blanket if you’re lucky enough to own one) and wrap yourself up burrito-style. Curl up on the couch, close your eyes, clear your head and focus on your breathing. Inhale… exhale….
9. Watch some cartoons. Adventure Time, Regular Show, Spongebob, Steven Universe, Chowder- whatever does it for you. Distract yourself, laugh a little, let go a bit. Bonus points for watching while eating cereal.
10. Take your bra off. Just take it off. Take all of your real world clothes off and slip into some cool pjs.
To remove burdens from oneself and inspire new beginnings
Lavender, Chamomile, and other cleansing/refreshing herbs of your choice
Step 1) Before getting your hair cut, wash with regular shampoo/conditioner/etc. Squeeze out the normal amount of product in your hands and hold it as best as you can for a few seconds (if it starts pouring out of your hands, it’s cool to go ahead and start applying it). Imagine it drawing in all the negative energy, thoughts, feelings, etc. from your body and holding it.
Step 2) Say the following as many times as you want: “Absorb and contain that which burdens me.”
Step 3) Run it through your hair as normal. As you do this, imagine it soaking up your burdens/etc. and storing them in your hair. Imagine the negative energy sinking to the bottom of your hair strands, weighing your hair down but remaining separate from your body so that it doesn’t affect you. This is where it will stay until it is cut loose. Wash your hair as normal, but imagine the negative energy stays in the ends of your hair.
Step 4) Get that haircut! Wow, you look sharp! As the hair is being cut, imagine it falling from you and taking the negative energy with it. As it is swept away, so it is swept away from you and your life.
Step 5) After your haircut, make a hair rinse from lavender, chamomile, and your other chosen herbs (careful: make sure you aren’t allergic). Wash your hair with this rinse and imagine it cleaning the rest of the residual negative energy from your hair. Say: “My burdens have been cleansed from me, so I can start anew.”
And you’re done! Optionally, you can cleanse the bathtub/bathroom afterwards as well if you’re afraid of residual energy.
