my thoughts are loud

anonymous asked:

Hey did you ever tried contemplative prayer? I tried it once and it's sooo hard. I don't know how to stop my thought from coming 😩

I haven’t heard it in those terms? But, it’s silent prayer, right? Like, praying in your head. 

If that’s it, then totally, ALL the time. When I wake up in the morning, I’m too tired to talk out loud, so I talk to Jesus in my head. And also, throughout the day, I can’t ALWAYS look like a crazy person, talking to myself, so I talk to Jesus in my head. 

It’s quite freeing because it keeps you in contact with the Lord all day long. Not just in moments when you are able to find a quiet space and pray out loud. 

Yeah, my thoughts get in the way sometimes too. There’s a few ways to deal with that. 

1. Bring those thoughts up to the Lord and talk about them. Maybe He is reminding you of something, or He wants you to pray about it specifically. 

2. Rebuke them. Not because your thoughts are demonic, but because they might be keeping you from them. It’s simple as. “Mind, I am speaking with Jesus right now, I command you, all thoughts that are not from Him, leave, right now.”

3. Write them down. Once they’re on paper, it’s easier to not think about them and keep on praying. Jesus won’t be offended if you have to take a second to write things down, He’s excited to spend time with you - whatever it takes. 

Keep at it, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Prayer is important - as Christians, let’s get good at talking to our Father.

Okay so hear me out. Blue Diamond mentions that Pink Diamond was shattered with a sword. But we know that It couldn’t have been Rose’s sword since that sword is made specifically so that it poofs a gem, but never shatters it.

But tell me

Who else do we know in the Crystal Gems who knows her way with swords

Who had a PRETTY strong reaction to Pink Diamond’s mural and the mention of her death in Back To the Moon?

My favourite thing about this clip was Sana actually writing how she’s been feeling. Opening up like that. Wow. I really hope that isn’t the last we hear of that and at some point we actually see her talk about her feelings with her friends. I love a grand gesture as much as the next person but sometimes actually sitting down and discussing things means more. That’s how issues are really resolved and bridges are truly built. That’s where real bonds are formed imo. 

I love their friendship so much and I’m disappointed in myself for not drawing something for them yet.

Lance is down with the flu and feeling extremely homesick; Hunk is the World’s Best  Friend and does his best to take care of him :’)

Long version under the cut:

When it comes to the people I care about, I can be quite the hypocrite. I’ll give you the hours during which I should be sleeping without hesitation. My eyelids saturated with fatigue, I’ll gladly watch the seconds tick away knowing that somehow this is helping you. But when it comes to me, I don’t want you to worry. You don’t need to help me climb out of the rubble I call my life. I’ll make it out somehow. Until I do, I’ll put a smile on my face for you. I’ll make sure it’s high quality, made from whatever amount of strength I could muster before stepping outside that morning. If I’m lucky, you won’t question the bags under my eyes or the way I seem to space out when my thoughts become too loud. If I’m lucky, my sadness will stay just that, mine. I know your arms are open, but sometimes I don’t want to trouble you with this body. Sometimes I just don’t want to be a burden.

-After all… no one is perfect.

-m.t.t.

so…. i’ve kinda “snapped” and started posting cute pics of my fur babies in the Ace Discord™ tag to, 

a) further piss-off the aphobes that are somehow genuinely bugged by this form of kindness and care towards aspecs, and 

b) bc i genuinely LOVE and appreciate all the cute animal pics and positivity ppl inject into the tag bc it’s incredibly hard to read through that shit if you’re aspec so these brief moments of “good”, “cute”, and “love” are an excellent and healthy reprieve for us. 

so of course i want to add to the positivity, especially after finding out how much it seems to “offend” ppl who claim not to hate us but then throw fits about kindness towards us being posted in their nasty-ass tag

all they need to do is BLOCK and the “””””clutter”””” (as I’ve seen it called) goes away for them, and they can be once again swimming in a sea of pure aphobia; something they clearly prefer to cute cat pics and aspec positivity. 

this is perhaps one of the few moments I feel justified in being a “shit disturber” bc the bar is set at cute cat pics and….. that literally harms no one? 

they just need to get over it and shut up

so yeah, as someone who almost NEVER stirs shit up bc it’s typically a petty and pointless thing to do, i’m gonna stir this shit up a little

anyone else wanna help?

i really and truly BELIEVE that this situation genuinely calls for us to stir the shit up by flooding the tag with cute pet pics and what not. I mean, it’s bullshit that it bothers them at all and it’s good for us to see these lovelies since the tag is full of hatred for us and this is a nice reprieve. 

honestly, who’s with Gracie, Si, and I? 💜

Don’t give me hope. Please. Be clear that it’s over. Break my heart. It’s ok. Just don’t give me hope. Don’t string me along, allowing me to develop this false pretense that we might get back together. You know that it’s over, but I don’t. I am an optimist. I am holding onto this thin thread of hope that we might miraculously work things out and end up together again. So, please. Break my heart into a million pieces and be clear that there is nothing left to salvage.

PSA

Allosexual = Person that does not ID as ace-spec

Alloromantic = Person that does not ID as aro-spec

IOW, they assume nothing about anyone’s sexuality or romantic life, they only assume a person does not ID on the ace or aro spectrum.

That’s it, that’s all, the end.

They harm literally no one.

Ok but I feel like the whole ‘you have to educate people’ lesson would have held a lot more weight had it come from Jamilla, Sana’s parents or even Elias. Maybe even a scene with her Imam would have been great. I dunno, again I understand the sentiment to a point but I’m not all about the execution of it. 

I hate how I’ve become so attached to you. I’m not this person. I don’t sit around waiting for a text or a response. I don’t stare at my phone every 5 minutes just to see if you have messaged me or whether or not you’re active on social media. I don’t look at old pictures and try to relive old memories in my head. I don’t get sad if we don’t talk for a day or more. This isn’t me, but lately that’s who I’ve been. I hate this. I hate how I’ve made you so important in my life.

-I hate how I’ve given you the ability to destroy me.

Does anyone else with ADHD have to vocalize their thoughts in order to keep them from slipping out of your reach? I feel ridiculous for doing this but especially when I’m inspired or especially distracted speaking my train of thought out loud helps me stay on track and make sense of the swirling typhoon of ideas in my brain.

It’s not about finding someone who can give me incredible highs… but rather… it’s about finding someone who will stick with me through all of the lows.
