likes are for self esteem

Girls, do not minimize yourself to please or impress any boy. Don’t downplay your strengths: your intelligence, ambition, passion, or kindness so boys won’t feel intimidated or threatened. Any boy who thinks you are too anything for him is not enough for you.

shibolet3  asked:

Wait what con artist from 2014

I’d like to title this story “Swing And A Miss

Okay, so my high school had this program where seniors could leave school like a month and a half early and opt out of exams if they took on internships around the neighborhood, but not everyone wanted to/was eligible to do it. Back in like 2013, they had like 15 bored seniors stuck in the school, so the administration brought in this Professional Life Coach, left him in alone in a room with them for two hours to talk to them about like, self-esteem or some shit. All the kids were pulled out of their classes for this*, and later told the administration that they loved him, they really enjoyed the talk.

So, about a year later, we have a new principal. He’s supposed to set up an assembly for all the 11th and 12th graders, but he doesn’t know what to do. One of his coworkers mentions that there was a life coach that was a huge hit with the kids that didn’t do community study last year, so maybe he’d also be great for a larger audience. The principal basically thinks “okay, what the hell” and calls up and hires Jason C. Jean to come talk to the kids.

Now, it’s like, 10:30, maybe 11:00 in the morning, and two entire grades are getting shepherded to the main gymnasium, and no one wants to God damn be there. We ain’t got time for self esteem talks. We want to sleep. And this guy, watching us all drag our feet in and collapse into the bleachers was just like…offensively peppy. There’s a couple faculty members sitting behind him, the woman who suggested he be hired for this, the vice principals for the grades- but the principal himself kept getting calls so he was in and out the whole time.

Now, Mr. Jean was like…the chill “Just call me by my first name dude” history professor at college times 30. He was trying so fucking hard. I’m referring to him as ‘Mr. Jean’ in this story just to be disrespectful. So anyway, we all get in there, and he tells us right off the bat “You guys are totally allowed to be on your phones and laptops during this! I get it! It’s no problem, like really, I insist!” so while the faculty members are exchanging smiles that read ‘how do we kill that while respecting him’, all the kids are immediately pulling out their electronics and he’s starts his speech.

Now, again, I really wanna reiterate that he told us we could be on our phones- because when the news articles started coming out about this, I remember all these angry, annoying comments from old people like “Why the hell were the students on their phones in the first place! So disrespectful! These damn millennials and their social media!” like, they were completely ignoring the entire story and just focusing in on kids using the internet, and it Really Super Pissed Me Off, so. Again, we had permission for this (which also ended up being Mr. Jean’s fatal mistake).

So, he starts off this speech fairly normally, like ‘hi, I’m Jason, I’m a professional life coach and I wanna teach you kids about how to be The Best You!’ and like people were tuning him out and listening to varying degrees. Some kids (like myself) were kinda dozing off, and everyone was on twitter or facebook.

His approach to a self esteem speech seemed to be ‘let me tell you my entire life story for hours’ and like, at first I was like “I’m not really hearing this, I’m half dreaming right now” but the more I started making myself pay attention the more…bizarre and rambling his story got.

So like, for instance, he told us he drank a lot in high school. Like, a lot. But he didn’t use that as a ‘don’t drink or party too hard’ lesson, instead he was like “I was fourteen so I always called my parents to pick me up, and they weren’t mad because they knew it meant I could trust them. So remember, always tell your parents when you’re drinking!” and then it kinda got to a point where it sounded like he was encouraging partying and drinking and the like to the group of underage kids.

And then, he told us how he used to play baseball all the time when he was a kid, and at 16 reached a crossroads in his life where the Phillies wanted to draft him or he could go play football for Penn State. And he said he went with Penn State but later lost the scholarship for some reason and we’re like…really.

There was absolutely nothing coherent about anything he was saying- nothing that tied anything together, made a point, seemed like it had anything to do with an assembly on self esteem. He told us at one point he was making upwards of 7 million a year. He told us one time before college he was homeless. He told us he used to own a construction company and built his own branch of nightclubs himself, that he and his friend then ran. He told us he fought a shark and came out with no scars. He told us that he had less money now, because after surviving a work related accident- direct quote- “I fell almost 30 feet and I broke in half” - he decided to leave that industry and spend more time with his family.

So, yeah, I was pretty positive this was bullshit, but there were clearly kids in the room that were falling for it. But then he said something like…he and his friend got bored one day and started jarring up their own pasta sauce, and made a deal with wegmans or some store like that to start selling it, and now he has a pasta sauce empire. Like he spent 15 fucking minutes on this. The way he kept saying ‘pasta sauce’ was so annoying I was about to claw my ears out. But anyway, two girls in my grade wanted to find out what brand he was talking about, so they googled his name.

And then quietly gasped.

And then furiously started typing into their phones.

And remember- everyone, even though they were paying attention- was on twitter and facebook. All the sudden I see heads flying up and wide eyes and people whispering to each other. Mr. Jean doesn’t seem to notice the change and keeps rambling on, but I know something happened so I google him too and-

Okay so basically he’s 1) been arrested, 2) filed for bankruptcy like three times and 3) has been hailed as a ‘Swinger Guru’ by playboy.

EVERYONES SILENTLY FLIPPING OUT.

So by now, this is a fucking game- he still doesn’t notice anything wrong amongst the kids, so we’re all silently texting each other to fill each other in. Pulling up receipts. But still playing the part of politely intrigued audience members. The school faculty have no fucking idea what’s going on, until one of the students texts her mom, who happens to be the woman that convinced the principal to hire this guy. We see her check her phone, go wide-eyed, and she runs out of the fucking room presumably to either find the principal or hide in terror.

So Mr. Jean had been talking to random people intermittently throughout this speech, but we reach the ‘questions’ part of it. Everyone seems to silently agree that instead of just asking him anything outright, we should just see how good of a liar he was. So they’d be asking him stuff like ‘how much money did you make with ____ company’ and he’d give a ridiculously high number as people were sending each other reports of him filing for bankruptcy during that time. Or they asked him about his construction business which he said was great, and while he was talking about how great it was we were all reading his arrest report, from when a woman hired him to build her house, and he took her money and then like…just didn’t build anything. Wild. Someone asked him about his family and he’s extolling Christian virtues while we’re all on the website for his annual Swing Fest. People would ask him how he got certain jobs and he was making promises to hook kids up in interviews and shit. Everyone was loosing their God damn minds online and just barely holding it together in person. This man was so beyond full of shit- like, he was a God awful life coach but his dedication to lying was inspirational.

We eventually get to leave and everyone is yelling and cracking up and freaking out, all running to our classes to tell the teachers and the underclassmen everything, and the teachers are freaking out, alternating between horrified confusion and laughing hysterically. Before the school day even ended, someone had called a bunch of news stations. The principal was freaking out and denying he had anything to do with it, before calling some students to his office to see what exactly the kids had searched up on the guy…Because apparently teenagers can perform better background checks than school officials. It was all anyone could talk about for weeks.

A couple months after this, for my theater class’ showcase, I wrote and directed a skit called ‘Mason B. Mean’. It was a huge hit. The principal was in the audience. I’ve never seen a grown man look so dead inside. I made sure I was out of the room before he came up to congratulate the cast and everything. The next day, my theater teacher told me his only comment about the skit was a quiet, long-suffering “Why.” 😂😂

Annnnnnnnd that’s the time a Swinger Entrepreneur rambled on about pasta sauce and money in front of teenagers who knew how to use google for almost two hours.

does anyone ever think about the fact that keith and lance both likely feel like outsiders on team voltron?

we already know lance feels like a seventh wheel. he feels like he is below everyone else due to poor self esteem and insecurities. he feels like he doesn’t belong.

but keith, he probably feels the same way, albeit in a different light. he’s the only member on the team who is part galra, aka the alien race that for the most part has been a scourge on the universe’s prosperity. not only that, but he has been labeled as the team’s loner too. he isn’t good at social interactions and often times has opinions that nobody really ever agrees with on the team.

i really want to see them bond over this mutual feeling of “being the odd one out”. because i think they can find more common ground within their relationship if they realized they are not alone in this feeling

How To Manifest... Fast!

“Like attracts like”
“You attract what you are”
“Feel positive and positive things will happen to you”

If you know anything about the Law of Attraction, then you’ve surely heard one of these phrases first. But, what if you aren’t feeling great at present? What if you’re feeling a negative emotion and forcing happy feelings feels fake? If that is the case then before you know it, you feel like the Law of Attraction just isn’t for you.

However, there is a very simple way out of this:

You may not be the person you want to be yet, but you can assume you are. For 5 or 10 minutes a day you can close your eyes, shut off from the world, and bring a loved one or a friend in your mind’s eye. You can imagine them looking at you and being amazed, envious or supportive of your New You. You can see them confirm the change in you that you want.

Examples:
Wealth: They praise you for being so financially successful. They wonder how you became such an overnight success!
Love: They tell you how happy they are for you, how your partner compliments you.
Health: They tell you how healthy, happy and lovely you look! They’re now asking you for advice!

In your mind’s eye, you can hear a conversation that will imply it’s already done. Whatever you want, it’s already done. Take someone’s voice that you can hear internally clearly. This is the power of manifesting. Try it and write to me in a few days or weeks when you notice the changes in your world!

Some Chiron Proses

Chiron is the healing asteroid which talks about past wounds and how to heal them. 

Aries Chiron- Voice has been stolen like he was a mermaid. Self-esteem and self needs buried under heavy soil. The journey is to the self. He needs to find his fire and go the path of the warrior. 

Taurus Chiron- She was pulled up by her roots and then cast aside. All she sees are fallen petals and a frail stem but forgets she came from powerful Gaia. 

Gemini Chiron- No one listens, words never come out right, misunderstandings seem to be the only perception between him and others. His voice drowns in the wind and eyes are always peering at him from behind the bushes. He must share his own language and speak louder than any storm. 

Cancer Chiron- She feels the emptiness and crush of being abandoned. Nurture was ripped away from her in the coldest way. She is fragile, wants tenderness, self-healing like the ocean, tough shell always, she is self-sustaining in her emotions. 

Leo Chiron- He was meant to bask in the sunlight but someone tore that away. Loved one cast a shadow too far. His pride is his strength and his strength has been broken down. He is the sound of bravery, spirit of empowerment, and the wall of dignity.

Virgo Chiron- All she sees are flaws in the mirror. Worry is an obsession. She thinks judgment is natural. There is a lit path of acceptance and tolerance that she has to find. 

Libra Chiron- All he wants is love. He weeps in his own wilted garden, water and sunlight for it to thrive exist in his heart and mind. Crush of the hopeless romantic and a desire for approval. Once he can water his own garden can he bask in others. 

Scorpio Chiron- There is a shadow in the corner of her bedroom, it is heavy and always follows her. What is behind that locked door? She fears many things but mostly her past and herself. She must walk thru the flames, face the darkness, and rise. 

Sagittarius Chiron- What is right and what is wrong? He thought he knew strongly but was disillusioned, led astray. He feels like a puppet with a corrupt master. He will rebel, he will form his own rules. 

Capricorn Chiron- She knows what coldness truly is. Ice is her shield, the scabs on the wounds. Authority was always taken from her, she wants to scream but holds her mouth back, softness and kindness tries to escape out apathetic eyes. She must find the reins of power and drink compassion. 

Aquarius Chiron- He just wants to be part of society, to join the collective. He can’t stand his own skin, he hates the sound of his own voice. By accepting and loving the alien he becomes more human. 

Pisces Chiron- Her soul has either weakened or is hiding in the mist. She is on a journey to join spirit and body. She leaves behind the victim becomes the savior, she learns to be the survivor and knows that is enough. 

conflict is when u want to Make Content bc ur thirsty desperate ass requires validation but also when u dont want to Make Content bc u know that u won’t get notes bc ur a small blog and bigger blogs that have Even Bigger Mutuals to rb their stuff and seeing that comparison will make u feel even shittier and dejected 

igottab-bbc  asked:

Ok so we know how in the post credit scene with Peter and Groot that Peter says he finally knows how Yondu felt when Groot says he's boring/uncool. So, this got me thinking about how Peter went to thinking that Yondu and the Ravagers were the coolest things in the galaxy to just boring old farts as he got older. ヽ(;▽;) think of the broken self esteem!

Oh, that surely happened. I think most teenagers or children in general reach that one point in life where they think of their parents as boring or embarrassing, and be it just for a minute.

Looking at Peter and Yondu, that probably was a lot more than just a minute.

I mean, let’s think about Yondu’s favorite dad joke aka “I will let ma boys eat’cha”. How many times did Peter get to hear that in the 26 years he more or less spent very closely with the Ravagers? A whole lot.

And one day, Yondu is explaining what their next mission is, Kraglin carefully makes Yondu aware of the fact that Peter, once again, isn’t really listening. The boy – man – lounges sideways in his seat, feet thrown over the armrest, and is listening to his music, head nodding in tune with the song, fingers thrumming on the Walkman.

Yondu, very gracefully, kicks him in the side. “QUILL!”

Peter twitches, grimaces, and reaches up to pull his headphones off. He has the nerve to scowl at Yondu when he asks, “What?!”

“What?” Yondu echoes, snarling as he leans back once again to raise one foot and kick after Peter, who scoots back in his seat to escape. “What, the boy asks me. I was talkin’, ya brat, and ya better listen when your Capt’n does that!”

“Why?” Peter looks around the room, noting that it’s still only the three of them plus Tullk. And none of them would say something if Yondu’s charge misbehaved a bit. “Kraglin and Tullk were listening! And it was boring, anyway!”  

“Boring? Bullshit, Quill, boring as it is, it’s yer job, and ya will do it right, else the boys can really eat ya for all I care!”

Once upon a time, that would have been enough to make the boy scramble to do as he was told. Not too long ago, it would have still been enough to at least shut him up.

Now, Peter snarls, rolls his eyes, and goes back to fiddling with his Walkman. “Yeah, yeah.”

Yondu blinks, perplexed, before he gets the little show of emotion under control again. “Ya got a deathwish or somethin’, boy?”

“Naaaah,” Peter barely looks up. “It’s just… you need a new line, or something. It’s really getting old.”

“Getting’…?!”

“Yeah, man, I mean – come on, Yondu!” Peter throws up his hands, swinging his legs down from the armrest and standing up as he stuffs his Walkman into his pocket. “Year after year, every day – you’re gonna get eaten, you’re gonna get eaten! I’m still here, so, uh, no? Not being eaten? The threat is getting super boring after the first three thousand times. Almost as boring as this meeting.”

“Quill…!”

“You know what? I’m out of here. Give me the important details later in short version.“

And with that the young man turns, already pushing his headphones back into place as he stomps towards the exit.

Yondu opens his mouth to bellow something after him, but no words will come. He doesn’t want to admit it, but he’s speechless, caught between confusion, anger and a strange tad of pride to the sheer stubbornness the boy shows.

But still, had anyone other than Kraglin and Tullk been with them, Yondu would have had to think about serious consequences for such a behavior. Probably should even now.

Speaking about that…

He turns, slowly and with his teeth still clenched, to look at Kraglin and Tullk.

Tullk is smart enough not to meet his gaze, pretending to not have heard anything and being occupied with the files opened on the holo screen in front of him.

Kraglin glances back at Yondu, just a sideway glance, and offers, “We could think up new threats, sir.”

Something about the off-handed joke, meant half-serious, manages to dissolve most of the leftover tension in Yondu, and he grunts as he stomps back to his place in between the many screens. “Ain’t like that will make ‘im behave. More like the opposite.”

“Hmmm,” Kraglin’s hum is never agreement nor disagreement, light frown marring his features, but he doesn’t speak up, and Yondu doesn’t ask. He knows that his first mate is not okay with how easily Peter got away once again.

“Boys will start to think yer getting’ soft, sir.”

He doesn’t want to think about how truthful that probably is.

Yondu catches his faint reflection in one of the holo screens – a mixture of tired frown and half-smirk still tilting his lips upwards – his feelings torn like they are so often when Peter is involved.

Shaking his head, he goes back to work, but not before huffing silently.

Boring, he says. Of all the things…

ITS SUMMER. I liked the lighting here, but it does force me to realise that the sun does completely bleach and obliterate my eyebrows
