my mirror needs to be cleaned

In a world where we are left to renegotiate our traumas again and again, we have to find empathetic, patient witnesses. My grandmother used to say : Some people in your life need to be mirrors and show you who you are from time to time. Some people in your life need to be blankets and embrace everything you are from time to time. Keep your mirrors clean and bright. Keep your blankets soft and close.

Damage Control Skin Care Routine

So you’ve spent the last two hours picking and now you have no idea how to move away from this complex feeling of self hate and all the sores on your body. Well, I’m here to help (I’m not a dermatologist but I AM a seasoned dermatillomaniac and this is Not My First Rodeo™, this is my tried and true technique for oily-combination skin)

1) distance yourself from a mirror and give your hands something to do. Maybe write about the picking experience, all your emotion and fear and hate. Play with a tangle toy, whatever you need to do to unwind and get the urge to settle down while distracting yourself. This is important. If you go straight from picking to cleaning up your face, you will just start picking again. Give yourself and your skin some time to cool down.

2) wash your face. Use a gentle and moisturizing cleanser, don’t use anything with alcohol or severe chemicals. Again, this works on my skin, so if you need any severe chemicals for your face, you do you. I totally get it. But try not to dry out your face bc moisture is key to healing

3) disinfect. Do a raw honey mask (raw honey is also good for fading scars) or use tea tree oil. Make sure you do not skip this. You absolutely must disinfect, whether it’s with neosporin or with a natural way, you need to make sure these wounds don’t get infected. My favorite way is to just drown my face in raw honey, but again, you do you. A product I like for healing is the Grahams natural alternatives sooth-it gel, which contains aloe Vera, Manuka honey, witch hazel, and many other good things. I love this product.

4) moisturize. Use a face moisturizer and just lather it on. Something not too thick. I really like the garnier skinactive clearly brighter dark spot corrector moisturizer and the garnier skinactive clearly brighter overnight leave on peel, as they help heal and fade scars. (These two products are my saviors. The end all be all. They faded my scars so quickly, after years of trying I finally got some payoff. I love these products.)

4) bandaids bandaids bandaids. Smack some honey or neosporin or whatever you like on that bandaid and then smack that bad boy on your wound. I find that raw honey really speeds up the healing process, and bandaids keep me from obsessing over the way the redness on my face looks.

Some other tips and tricks-
•don’t use most face masks. Many of them with be rough on the skin and are not supposed to be used on open wounds. Read the bottle before putting it on your face, or just use raw honey. I am a huge fan of raw honey.
•aloe Vera helps calm down redness. Aloe Vera is your friend. It is also very moisturizing. Aloe Vera is your friend.
• I have heard frankincense is good on wounds but I have never tried it

Good luck babe

You Still Need to Clean It {Jackson Wang}

You crossed your arms over your chest stubbornly, tapping the bottom of your foot against the tiles of the bathroom floor, an eyebrow raised at the sight it had been left in.

White toothpaste left to waste on the side of the sink with spilled toothbrushes and makeup brushes scattered. The main mirror was grubby and in desperate need of a clean from the make up stains and grimy dirt that had attached itself to the surface.

“Yeah, it is pretty messy isn’t it. Maybe we should clean it.” Jackson spoke tentatively, the obvious care in his tone to ensure he didn’t express the wrong words in your irritated state.

“Us? When was the last time that you cleaned the bathroom. It is all your mess after all.” you pointed out sharply, motioning your hand to present the disgusting sink. Not to mention the pile of dirty washing that Jackson had stripped himself of the night before and left to change into fresh pajamas.

“I- I have done it since we moved in!” Jackson defended himself.

You shook your head, “Time and date, please.”

“Well I-” he stumbled, “I can’t remember that far back, {y/n}!”

“Then I want this bathroom clean by the time I get back from work. Do you understand? You have a day off today, so no excuses. If I find even a spec of dirt in here, you aren’t getting laid for a month. Do I make myself clear?” You ordered him strictly.

“But-” He tried to protest.

“I said, do I make myself clear?” You interrupted him sternly.

For a moment, you thought he was going to try and protest again. But instead, he merely dropped his head in a child’s sulking motion before uttering a simple, “yes.”

“Good, I’ll see you later.” You smiled at him bittersweet before leaving him with his head hanging in the messy bathroom.

When you finally returned from work. Your spirits had been lowered, even more so than before you left that morning. As you stepped through the front door and took off your coat, you heard a loud cursing sound from the living room. You instantly knew something was wrong.

“Jackson, are you alright?”

“Yep! You’re home early, sweetheart” He called, a rush of panic evident in his voice.

“You didn’t clean it, did you?” You sighed, muttering under your breath as you walked into the hall, just to see him close the bathroom door behind him.

“It’s clean in there.” He told you adamantly.

“Do you promise?” You asked him, watching his smiling face drop in an instant.

“Okay, maybe it’s not clean but-”

“Did you even do anything in there?” You asked him, feeling as though you were about to explode in anger.

“I- no… but I did intend to! Mark came over and I didn’t get time-”

“Jackson!” You snapped, glaring at him as you pushed past him to enter the bathroom. As you had suspected, it didn’t look any different from when you had left it that very morning. He hadn’t even cleaned up the toothpaste, or rearranged the brushes. Nothing at all.

You turned to face him, but before you could say anything, his lips were on yours, a mixture of sorrow and regret filling through him.

“I’m sorry {y/n}, I really am. I promise to do it tomorrow, okay?”

You looked up at his large orbs, wide, soft and glistening with plead. He placed his hands on your hips, placing a gentle kiss on your cheek.

“Do you really promise?” You asked him.

“Yeah.”

You huffed, letting out a breath of forgiveness. “Fine, I’ll let you off, just this once. But just so you know, if Mark does decide to turn up tomorrow. He’ll be tidying up in here with you. Understand?”

Jackson grinned. “You have my word.”

You smiled, planting your lips on his for a quick kiss on the lips.

“So, how about I make it up to you now.” Jackson winked.

“Nope. didn’t I tell you this morning that if you didn’t clean up then you wouldn’t get laid for a month?” You smirked devilishly, your ego growing as you saw his face visibly fall.

“Oh crap, yeah…”

“Later, Jackson.” You winked at him, turning back to get ready for a much needed sleep.

In that moment, you really loved karma.

My Color Infusion Jade (I know she’s Subject I but she’s literally just Janay’s friend Jade) got Fab Fringe’s outfit cuz I find Tall clothes fit CI bodies a bit better than other sized clothing lol.

I’m loving the My Scene Hollywood Dressing Room set despite it missing all of its cool junk cuz these are some of the most clearest reflecting toy mirrors I’ve seen. I need to clean off the Bratz crap and possibly remove the star stickers but I’m happy I paid 6 bucks for these two.

I haven’t been hungry. I haven’t been able to eat. I munched on like four pieces of chocolate out f boredom and then I couldn’t even handle that! I purged again. This is the second time I purged after I said I was going to recover. I give up. I’m horrible and pathetic. I can’t do anything right they are right I am a failure I screw up everything I’m utterly useless in general and I’m disposable

God I hate my own existence so much. The only time I have looked in the mirror is after I purged and it’s because I couldn’t avoid it I needed to make sure I cleaned all of the throw up from my face.

I had really been harboring a lot of anxiety lately, not wanting to do chores or homework and just wanting to be a hermit in general. But after the ritual last night I feel like I was finally able to let some of that negative energy loose, and put it towards my cause. I’m going to try to get more done today like clean the house and spend extra time with my bunnies. I also need to get my oil changed and get some minor scratch fixed on my car (seems like someone got a little too close and hit my drivers side mirror when they opened their door, jerks). Anyway, thanks for all your support over this past month. I’m grateful, and I know Binky would have been, too. In fact, if he could have met you guys I bet he would have been itching to sniff you and chew your shoelaces. XD
