Too short to ride meant a lot to me i liked that per couldn’t shapeshift im 17 4ft 9 and it pains me that I’ll never be the height of a normal person everytime I look in the mirror i see a freak but the gang ended up so secure about their height i hope someday i become as secure as them because im a premature girl and when you turn 18 you stop growing so i know im never gonna be average so seeing per struggle someone i could relate to really meant a lot. - Anonymous
“So?” says Draco impatiently. “They locked you in a cupboard for ten years.”
“I’m pretty sure you tried to do that at some point too,” points out Harry, clapping his hand over Draco’s which is still around his arm, which means that he’s just dragging Draco towards the Dursleys with him.
Super sweet little fic where especially protective!Draco and protective!Ron should be addressed! They’re even “working” together a bit Ö
Any words for someone with serious insecurity issues? I know this is a little weird and I'm sorry for bothering you, but I could really use something encouraging right now. Things have been a bit dark lately and I could really use a bit of light to see.
You know, this is one of my biggest issues right now so I’m gonna share something that’s worked for me in the past.
I want you to picture Nick Valentine. He’s pretty old. Pieces of him are literally falling off and broken. He went from being a human to a synth in a world that hates synths. I want you to think of his affinity dialogue and all the times and ways he says “who’d ever love something like me?”
Now, I want you to think of all the people on tumblr who love Nick. Like, literal romantic love. Think of all the people who find him comforting. Think of all the fanart and fanfiction. Think of all the blogs dedicated just to him.
Think of Hancock and how he’s all flirts and confidence until you start flirting back and then it’s ‘who wants to wake up every day next to this ugly mug?’ Think of all the people on tumblr who want to do just that. Think of all the people who love him despite his violent tendencies and drug habit (or perhaps because of them.)
Now think of yourself. What you’re insecure about may well have merit. It’s important to acknowledge that because then it can’t hurt you. You may not be the best writer or the best artists or the prettiest person in the room but that does. not. matter. Because just like with Nick and Hancock, there are people who won’t care. They will love you despite and because of those things that you’re insecure about. They seem like a big deal to you, but to the rest of the world they’re really not. You’re just fine, pal.
Me internally:I am constantly questioning the validity of my relationships with friends. I am in a constant state of anxiety and doubt. I feel unwanted, unneeded, and like everyone is better off without me being around them. I'm so insecure about everything involving my interpersonal relationships that it causes me great anxiety and depression.
