listen: let yourself stim. pick up new stims. stimming is just as important to your health and happiness as avoiding overload, maybe even more so. life is too short to give a damn about what random jerks think. let yourself walk on your toes and flap your hands and bounce when you’re happy and spin in circles and pet soft things and walk barefoot in the grass and stare at something sparkly as you turn it in the light and jam out to music you like and. don’t limit yourself to tiny discreet stims; feel with your whole body and soul.
