"I am Invisible," Introverted. The type that hides from the spotlight or behind others. Doesn't really give off any kind of vibe (which can be both positive and negative).
"I am Minimal," material items aren't a concern of those with an empty 2nd House. They aren't possessive. Generally hold experiences above gifts. (Really hard to buy gifts for because they'd rather do something than get something).
"I am Neutral," these people aren't swayed toward any side of things. Tend to be of average intellect for the sign that lands here. No specific pride or feelings that aid with intellect unless something interacts with Mercury.
"Without Nurture," the family life didn't play a huge role in this persons personality, whether it be the normalcy of their family unit, lack of parental action, ect. (How that is depends on the sign the house is in).
"I Enjoy," these people are less passionate about things and rather enjoy life as a whole. They're love life heavily depends on their Venus. These people may find little enjoyment in life, so they're generally thrill seekers and risk takers. They aim to feel... in any way possible.
"I am Healthy," these people have no specific health difficulties or proficiencies. They generally don't find people as a whole interesting and may show little care for areas that you'd be considered a "People Doctor" for, which includes Psychology and other Doctorly practices.
"I am Alone," These people are totally independent and will not change for anyone. They may fear loneliness, but they refuse to change to increase their chances. They are capable of Love, but they will not be forced to do anything. Traditional affairs are far and few between in love, and they may be considered unlucky. Marriage is unlikely, or at least unlikely to work out, due to personal choices, or legality issues. This does not, however, mean they will not find a life long romantic/sexual partner.
"I am Disinterest," Very few people with this placement end up in Astrology or anything occult, with general skepticism and disbelief. (This goes double if the 12th is empty as well). These people are somewhat unaware of the possibility of death, and when it's brought to their attention they may get somewhat upset. These people do not have a central point of common change, and may undergo almost complete personality changes at times.
"I am Surface," These people are exactly how they appear. They hide nothing. Some people would say they have disinterest in things like politics, philosophy, and spiritual journeys, however I would say that they are simply unwilling to present or discuss information without being told to. The Aunt that tells everyone to stop talking about politics at dinner? Empty 9th House.
"I am Above," These people find social classes and the divide between types of people irrelevant, and care not of the social repercussions of their actions. They don't care about honor. Possible anarchists.
"I am Individual," These people have secular social groups, and their goals, ambitions, and interests tend to benefit themselves, or are random acts of kindness with little dictation. These people tend to steer clear of large groups, but not avidly avoid.
"I am Forward," These people have little imaginative dictation. What happens in their mind stays in their mind. Skeptics. Average memory. Fact based. Little to No enemies. Keeper of Secrets. Truth Speakers. May also steer clear of large social groups. May have a tendency to isolate themselves.
*Please keep in mind there is little information on these, and it really does differ from sign to sign in each house. This is a general statement, and if seen as incorrect feel free to message and discuss this with me, as I am to become a better astrologist and if I'm spreading some sort of misinformation, I strive to fix my mistakes. Thank you.
This website’s mentality that teens/young adults making displaying some problematic behavior is as unforgivable and damning as the words and actions of middle aged bigots and deserve death and doxxing is frankly terrifying, especially since so many suggestible teenagers and adults are being dragged into this black and white morality puritanical brand of views and will often continue to grow up with this exposure whilst being manipulated and emotionally abused by those who are “protecting them” is frankly terrifying.
you should let your guard down sometime! We're your friends! You can trust us! We're always going to be there for you!
What I Want to Say:
Okay, but if there's anything I've learned in my too many years on this planet it's that people only value your friendship so long as it is convenient and does not require any actual work. The moment you actually ask someone for help or to listen to an issue you're having is the moment you find out just how shallow your bonds are.
The fastest way to lose my trust is to use hyperbolic descriptors to describe our friendship. When you say that we're *best friends* and that you'll *always* be there and that there's *nothing* that could ever scare you away, I know that you've not thoroughly thought through what this entails and that you'll be the first to bolt when I inevitably become trying.
Don't promise your friendship lightly to people who have learned time and again the cheapness of words. When you hear someone's history of abandonment and isolation, choose the descriptors of your relationship precisely because if you fail to live up to them then you will watch me quietly withdraw into nothingness.
What I actually say:
Thank you, I really appreciate hearing that!
Many of us with Dissociative Identity Disorder were told we had to keeps lots of secrets as children.
Horrible secrets…some so horrible we have to keep the from parts of ourself.
When we grow up we shouldn’t have to continue to keep secrets out of fear.
Unfortunately due to the stigma surrounding DID we often feel we must keep secrets.
We can’t tell anyone we have DID because we don’t want to be forced into isolation or feared.
For many trauma survivors being able to be open without fear is a vital part of recovery.
The feeling that the world is against us feels much more real when we experience the ableism and stigma that pop culture and society has engraved in the mind of impressionable people.
The feeling that the world is against us drives us to isolate ourselves rather than seek help and that can lead to self destructive behavior, maybe even a suicide attempt.
After all there is a 70% suicide attempt rate in those with DID.
Please don’t isolate us. Please don’t make us keep secrets anymore.
We are survivors, and yes we are multiple but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to be able to have a support system outside of our internal system.
We don’t want to be afraid to tell the truth.
Dominant functions get plenty of praise, as the most this or that. But when they shine best, in my opinion, is when they’re not excessive and are well-rounded. They’ve been called the ‘Hero’ functions as they can very much resemble super powers. Yet again, in my opinion, they’re the most epic when they lead fearlessly and honorably, taking more with them than just their own cravings and impulses.
So here’s what I appreciate about all the dominant functions when they are acting in healthy integration and moderation.
Dominant Se in ESPs Life is right here, right now, and you don’t let it pass you by and get away. You’re bold and brave and waste little to no time in getting down to matters. You readily adapt to circumstances or even use them to your advantage. Or you demolish what stands in the way. You can also be fiercely protective of those who are weaker than you in this sense and help create a path for them. And for someone who’s so in touch with what’s going on, it’s admirable that you still do your own thing. You may be trendy, or be setting the trend.
Dominant Si in ISJs What’s the name of that? What was the date? You’re a walking encyclopedia when it comes to your interests and what you care about. And when the past seems unreal and one has to wonder whether things happened or not, you can tell the facts and keep us from losing our minds. You’re a stabilizer on many levels and often the much-needed anchor. Duty and commitment don’t frighten you as much as it does others and that keeps us afloat.
Dominant Ne in ENPs Ever expanding and elaborating on concepts, possibilities take shape and inform us of what could be. You are breadth instead of depth, and that can keep us alive when we’re running out of air. You are enterprising and defiant toward limiting beliefs that keep from growing and can break out of your own, setting the example for others. And while some of us aren’t fans of arguing (or even conversing) every day, when you’re serious (or at least considerate) enough, you can be an exceptionally brilliant orator.
Dominant Ni in INJs You are the calm amidst the storm. Little can phase you when you’re familiar with the archetypes contained within given circumstances. As you see it, some things may change and some will remain the same. And you give time, time. You are depth instead of breadth, and that can take us to the root of the issues that torment us and liberate us from them. You easily look further, which, when done wisely, can be both relieving and inspiring.
Dominant Te in ETJs Got something to build? “The world will knock you down plenty, you don’t need to be doing it yourself.” You’re confident and motivational as few projects can intimidate you. There are always ways to deal with tasks, even when they are many and are challenging, and you are well aware of this. You rarely back down when you must get through it, even when things are hard. And why sabotage yourself or let others sabotage you? Seriously, why? If you’re working toward improvement, there’s no good reason - so you keep going.
Dominant Ti in ITPs Got something to dismantle? You’re the person to pick things apart and be critical with. That which is highly respected and accepted despite having major flaws and holes stands no chance against you if you know how to prioritize and make your dissection ultimately beneficial. When you’re not cynical or rebelling destructively for no good reason, you can thoroughly examine what is and isn’t working and find solutions that truly address problems at their core.
Dominant Fe in EFJs No smothering people, but being there for them and offering help even when they try to act like they don’t need it. Sometimes it takes someone like you to remind some of us that we’re not always meant to be isolated or divided (just please don’t ask me to hug my enemies) and could help each other, or at least spend some worthwhile moments together. I don’t know how you can keep extending yourself for others (well, I do, but whoa), but some of us really needed someone who’d go the extra mile for us.
Dominant Fi in IFPs You’re a treasure trove few get to see, holding dear all that is of meaningful significance to you. Still, you constantly evaluate and reevaluate, digging deeper and polishing what is within you for a purer sense of self and of what’s important to uphold. You’re no stranger to a wide range of emotions (although they don’t frequently come to the surface) and can comprehend others on very personal levels, if not only let them be.
“For the druids’ legends are true. Merlin is Emrys. A man destined for greatness. A man who will one day unite the powers of the old world and the new, and bring the time that the poets speak of. The time of Albion.”
“I have been waiting all these years for the arrival of a new time. The time of the Once and Future King.”
With the way you've been acting, this is well deserved. Perhaps if you didn't violate people's basic rights merely to stop you from causing further damage, this would not have to be done. You'll have plenty of time to think about this now, though. Have fun. M!A- you are now trapped in an impenetrable box. There is no way in and no way out. You know this box is located back at camp, for the sounds associated with it are audible. There is no sunlight. No air-holes. The air is dry and you hunger.
> There you are. Like the anon said. In a box. It’s dark and you have only the light of your phone. It happened as soon as you opened this message, so at least there’s no more than a couple second’s confusion before you read the explanation of what happened to you.
> You thought Silaas’ whole troll-jesus thing was a load of BS, but maybe he has a little more divine mojo than you thought. Or at least the ear of a friendly god.
> Well, this sucks. What are you supposed to do now?
My friend @thebluepikachu135 has been having a really rough time and they have been trying to seek help, but they’ve had no luck with it so far. They’re saying they want to give up trying with it, and want to isolate themselves. Please send them love, and give them some help and ideas of what to do, I don’t want them to shut themselves off because that will only make them feel worse… I don’t know what else to do… help me, guys, please <3
If you know someone with a mental illness, understand that the smallest things can trigger sadness and anxiety.
Most people will never understand that.
Please try to understand that. Please don’t isolate them.
L“Today is Suicide Prevention Day. If you’re feeling that despair and isolation, please try and reach out to someone. I know it might seem impossible to get past it, but it’s not. I’ve been there. A few times. And it was always hard to get out of, but it’s possible. If i had killed myself 10 years ago when i really wanted to there would be no Impractical Jokers today, and that would be a ghastly tragedy. Kidding about the show, but you see the point. You never know what is coming if you stick around. Please stick around. Please reach out. If someone you know is making jokes about killing themselves, ask about it. That was how i expressed it. Help each other. We’re all we have.”
S/o to all the girls who constantly deal with their family and friends who don’t understand or don’t try to understand your disability and/or neurodivergence. It can be so painful, frustrating, and completely isolating. Please know they are in the wrong and you aren’t. You deserve support and understanding no matter what
I’ve seen several people talking about this this week and have been in chat conversations with a few people about this, so I thought I would post this publicly.
I don’t keep track of how well my fics do number-wise, but somewhere around 20-40 is a really good number in my view, especially if it hasn’t been on @timepetalsprompts or @thedalektables or @dwficrec or promo-ed in some way to a wide variety of people. I don’t focus on numbers though to measure success. Numbers just make me crazy with comparison and make it not fun. As long as I’m hearing something positive back, I know it isn’t a flop or offending people. Quality over quantity, is what I am trying to say, in a way. (So, readers, go comment on your favorite author’s fic. hehe) ;) :P
Success looks different for everyone depending on how many followers you have, how interactive you are with them, how long you’ve been posting, how long you’ve been writing, how often you interact with everyone else’s fic, how often you participate in events and games and things… a huge variety of factors that only come with time. Don’t beat yourself up! Give it a few years.
And know there are a ton of silent lurkers out there loving your fic, but not commenting or liking because they are too shy/afraid to create an account. I know what that’s like. I did it for literally 10 years.
Also, reblogs are probably not an accurate measurement of a fic’s success because users don’t always think that way. I try to keep my blog pretty focused on my own fics and very few fics in my genre/specific brand of fluff. I may love your fic, but it isn’t what I post on my personal blog. If you want variety beyond my flavor, see a general fic blog like those mentioned above.
As a social media pro, a few tips: Know that if you aren’t getting the numbers you want, it’s probably not that your fic is bad, but that you need to promo it in different ways. Hitting up the awesome people at the above mentioned blogs (seriously, they are super nice. Send them an ask!), posting at different times for all the time zones (#internationalfandomproblems), posting quotes from your fic, mix up your tagging habits, writing summaries differently, cross-posting on All the Sites, taking prompts and @ mentioning the prompter, do a fic game… anyone else have tips to add?
I’m sorry this is very late, though I feel is very necessary to all the people following this blog for me to speak on this matter. I cannot hide it and I know there’s people like myself struggling tonight.
I love you all, no matter your race, gender, religion, sexual orientation. You are not alone though, please stand with your friends, family, your community. Please know that you will never be alone, there are many other people who also agree with you and are feeling them same about this. Please don’t fret, please don’t feel useless or anything of that negative thoughts. Keep your head held high, keep your thoughts positive. If you know a loved one who is also struggling tonight, please send them a message telling them they are not alone through this. Help each other out and send positive vibes around.
I love you all, I am sending a lot of positive vibes to each and every one of you. Please don’t give up hope. Please don’t ever feel you are isolated. Please don’t ever hurt anyone. Please keep positive together.
