not break it yourself

anonymous asked:

What do you do when you don't know what to do but you now that you have to do something? Where do you go when there's nowhere to go but you can't stay where you are? How do you endure it when you just can't take it anymore but you can't afford to break? How do you keep yourself alive when you don't want to exist anymore?

It's testing week at my school, my grades are dropping, and I'm constantly catching myself before I have an anxiety attack. Could I have a star, just to remind myself that everything will be ok?

Testing weeks are always stupidly stressful, even if you think you’ve got a good handle on the material. My best advice is to focus on the tests themselves rather than your grades right now; however, if you’re really worried about them I’d suggest talking to your teachers/professors. A lot of educators are more than happy to help you pass, especially if they see that you’re willing to do some extra credit or something.

Don’t lose hope, you’re doing the best you can. Remember to take breaks, take care of yourself, and get enough sleep. Everything will be okay <3

Keep on shining!

I feel like you're too much of a perfectionist with your public image that you got worked up like that. But we all know you make the most creative and detailed post in the Astro community and you are a sweet person on top of that. So what people say shouldn't matter because they don't know any better. Give yourself a break! ❤️

I’m super close to crying because of that, Anon! 😭 Thank you so much x100 and I love you to the Moon and back!! ❤️😭 It’s true, I’m really a perfectionist. I didn’t think anyone noticed but I get so worked up on how my posts are supposed to look like. I want everything to look enjoyable. I don’t want people to be like:

“Uhhh… ok here’s Pisces in the 2nd House blah blah.”

I want people to be like:


I just want the very best for all, not just for myself. I want other people to be enjoying the work I put out and make astrology fun to learn. It’s fun to learn about yourself!! ❤️ Y'know? But yeah, you’re completely right! I have to stop aiming for this “perfect” image because it’s not gonna happen. I strain myself so much and I’m literally a human.

Stop what you are doing. Go outside and breathe. The world will not end if you take ten minutes for yourself.

I know it’s hard for you to talk to anyone right now, but how much do I wish I could tell you this: love isn’t everything. You don’t always have to live on the feeling of being in love. You are not a half of a whole seeking for your perfect other half; you are whole. You could be capable of creating masterpieces if you tried to reach for the sky. So please don’t get stuck in your hopeless circle, waiting for love - you are so much more than that person you said you are.
Don’t rush yourself. Give yourself the time you need to heal. Then, continue once you’ve regained your strength, and feel ready. Don’t be rushed. You have time.

important things to remember during exam, test, and finals season
  • don’t put yourself down if someone gets a better grade than you
  • don’t put yourself down if you don’t get the grade you’re aiming for
  • be proud of what you accomplish instead of being angry at what you do not
  • your grades you get do not define who you are
  • give yourself breaks; don’t overwork yourself

Look at you! You’re living perfectly fine without the person you thought you needed.


Happy Saturday, studyblr babes! This past week was about springtime, new opportunities, and acceptance. Here’s what I’ve learned: we are all build-in with issues and faults and that’s just the way it is. Everyone is going through something else. Give yourself a break. Stop beating yourself up for being human. The sun will always rise tomorrow.

Now Playing (aka two songs that got me through all the shit I was going through this week):

Shake It Out- Florence + The Machine

Wake Up- Arcade Fire

I know this is an extremely stressful time for you, but just remember you can only do as much as you possibly can. Then, give yourself a definite break of at least an hour to two, just to give yourself (brain included) a rest, which everyone needs once one reaches their limit. Remember, you will still be alive tomorrow, the sun will still rise the next day, so its not “A matter of life or death.”

At the end of each day, take each and every one of your worries, and allow them to blow away in the breeze. The day is over. Tomorrow is a new day. Until then, rest easy.
