overlapping negative

  • To the aro lesbians: youre not feeding the stereotype or sexualizing lesbians. Its not your job to desexualize lesbians. You deserve the world and more ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the aro gay men: youre not feeding the predatory gay stereotype. Its not your job to end the belief that gay men are predatorial ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the aro bi and pansexuals: youre not emotionally manipulative or abusive for being aromantic. Its not your job to end the belief that bisexuals and pansexuals are sex hungry and emotionally null. Youre deeply emotional and complicated and no one can take that from you ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the aro heterosexual men: youre not inherently mysoginistic or a "fuckboy" for not being interested in pursuing a romantic relationship with a woman youre sexually attracted to. Its not your job to single handedly tackle the belief that men who like to have sex with women but not engage in a romantic relationship with them are predatory misogynists. You identity is not problematic because it overlaps with these negative stereotypes ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the aromantic heterosexual women: Your aromanticism is not an obstacle for men to hurdle and "defeat". You are not a prize to be won ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the aromantic asexual people: you're aromanticism/asexuality does not make you a waste. Your companionship is no less valuable than that of alloromantic allosexuals ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the aromantic people who feel broken: you're not, aromanticism isnt the character flaw that media makes it out to be. It is a valid identity, not a quirk or mistake. Its an identity ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the aromantic minors: youre not immature, you wont "realize when youre older". Aromanticism isnt a childish thing that you grow out of as you mature. Your identity is just as valid NOW as it will be in twenty years. Just because people get up in arms about a-spec identities in minors doesnt make you any less aromantic. ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the aromantic abuse survivors: whether your aromanticism is related to your trauma or not does not invalidate it. Whether youre aromantic because or despite your trauma youre still aromantic and no less than those who arent survivors ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the romance repulsed aromantics: its okay. YOURE okay. Romance being shoved down your throat every way you turn is hard, and people ignoring your feelings about it hurts but youre just as valid as those who dont experience it. You deserve to be as comfortable as everyone else ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the autistic aromantics: your autism doesnt discount your aromanticism whether theyre closely entwined or not. You deserve better than allistics policing your identity and how it interacts with your autism ๐Ÿ’š
  • To the popular aromantics: its not a competition as to who can be .~*the one*~. to "fix" you no matter how much it may feel that way. You are so much more than a challenge for people to overcome ๐Ÿ’š
  • To all aromantic people regardless of all else: i love you. I promise you'll get through this ๐Ÿ’š

Wait heart is positive emotions not hope?

Heart is the idea of an emotional response in general, good bad neutral whatever emotion, something thats immediate and irrational and comes from a place of instinct, whether thats happiness, anger, joy, fear its the idea of just reacting emotionally to any given situation without taking the time to logically think it through, or just having immediate empathy for the situation at hand

 Mind as the opposite, is the idea of of apathy, unemotional responses, thinking things through with logic, not having immediate responses but also lacking in empathy on the flipside

Heart is a revolutionary seeing someone hurt, and their empathy and emotional nature making them immediately jumping to help without considering anything else like the consequences or if theres a better route or if they should wait for a better time and place, all they care is someone is hurt, someone needs help and they need it now so i will, whether it comes from a place of justified anger, righteous fear, 

Hope instead is the idea of positivity, a pushing motivating force that keeps you going onward and forwards despite any negativity that tries to hold you back, picks you up and dusts you off when you fall down and on the downside is nearly impossible to look at the negatives of a situation realistically (Hope: I can totally climb this mountain without an air tank and I will not die of lack of oxygen! :D I can do it!! then Rage: No, you can’t do that. You’re going to die. There are wild animals and other real concerns.)

Heart is immediate and jumps on the most concerning emotional thing (all kinds of emotions) without considering the long term consequences

Mind waits, apathetic to any and all immediate emotional concerns of any sort, neither swayed by passion nor pity, instead focusing on long term logical concerns

Hope is all positivity all the time, whether or not positivity is the appropriate response for any given situation isnt a concern, because from their point of view, it always is

Rage is negativity all the time, whether or not negativity is the appropriate response for any given situation isnt a concern, because ffrom their point of view, it always is

like in the above example, showing where Hope, while in its nature to be “positive”, is actually a bad or negative response for that situation, while Rage in its nature to be “negative” is actually a good and positive response for that situation

“Positive Emotions” is where Heart and Hope overlap

“Negative Emotions” is where Heart and Rage overlap

(and then Mind/Hope and Mind/Rage overlap in other areas unrelated to the nature of this post, more dealing with truth/authenticity and lies/falsehoods than anything of an emotional or unemotional nature)
