Hey. You’re not gonna end. Even if you move out of your parents house you’re not gonna end. Even if you lose your job you’re not gonna end, you’re gonna find another one. Even if you’re homeless for a little while you’re not gonna end. Even if your s/o breaks it off or all your friends leave you, you’re not gonna end. All those things that think will be the end of you, they’re just things. Breakfast this morning was just a thing. You’re life isn’t over and it won’t be. You’re still going to listen to music that you like and have conversations and laugh and sleep and do things you enjoy. You’re going to be happy. You’ll always be okay.
Adult realization: you will make mistakes, you will act irrationally. You will commit some wrongs that cannot be fully righted. People will dislike you and misunderstand you for all sorts of reasons. None of these make you a bad person. All you can do is try your best to be kind and just to people, grow and learn.
IN WHICH NAOKI URASAWA AND HISASHI EGUCHI LIITERALLY SAY YOU SHOULDN’T LOSE SLEEP TO WORK ON YOUR ART !
AND THE LEGENDARY late SHIGERU MIZUKI (GeGeGe no Kitarou) says that Tezuka and Ishimori were bragging about sleeping like 3 hours per day and died in their 60s, while he slept 9 hours a day (for the record, he died at the age of 93 (Nov.30.2015))
Friendly reminder Steve Rogers is one of the youngest Avengers out of the group.
Friendly reminder that Steve Rogers was only 21 when he went through the super soldier experimentation.
Friendly reminder that when Steve Rogers was awoken in the modern century, for him it had only been a few weeks since he had lost Bucky.
Friendly reminder that Steve Rogers is only in his mid-twenties and still does everything he can to take care of those around him.
Friendly reminder that Steve Rogers has PTSD and severe depression, as shown in several of the movies and comics per his suicidal tendencies.
Friendly reminder that almost everyone Steve Rogers knew in 1943 was dead when he woke up, and he was faced with the ideal that he had outlived everyone he loved.
Friendly reminder that Steve Rogers still needs to make mistakes and be selfish, and still deserves to be loved and cherished. He isn’t like Iron Man or Hawkeye, he’s not lived any sort of life only battle and carnage. He deserves to have someone look after him everyone once and awhile.
It’s ok to have complex feelings about a family member who abused you because you can see how oppression and social conditioning made them this way.
Sometimes feelings about abusers do not fit neatly into “kill them all” vs “forgive but don’t forget” ideologies.
Maybe we will always be having those feelings and processing them every time they come up, and that’s okay. You’re not a fake victim because you empathize with your abuser and your empathy is not evidence that they didn’t hurt you or that you can’t also be angry.
