Summer is coming up and just a few reminders of things you don’t need to comment on if someone is wearing less clothing, e.g vests, shorts, swimwear:
binders/bra straps showing through thin/sleeveless tops
whether they’re ‘thin enough’ or ‘too skinny’ to wear that outfit (no such things - anyone can wear what they want to)
body hair, regardless of where on the body it is
sweat patches - it’s summer, it’s hot, people sweat
People are likely already aware of all of those things and don’t need your opinion or commentary. Summer can be hard for people who are insecure about or shamed for their bodies. They’re just trying to keep cool and enjoy themselves like everyone else. Don’t make it harder for them by pointing things out things that might make them feel self-conscious.
I’m afraid of people leaving me, when I need them, of people lying to me, when I always tell them the truth, of them forgetting me, when I could never forget them, of being replaced, because I know that I’ll never be good enough, of being hurt and of people giving up on me.
Gavr’inis cairn (around 3.500 B.C.),
Île de Gavrinis, Breizh 2017.
The burial chamber is reached from the outside by a 14m long corridor. Of the 29 orthostat slabs that form the sides of
the passage, 23 are decorated with carved symbols and patterns.
“It is for its art that Gavrinis is famous. No
fewer than twenty-three of it’s twenty-nine upright stones have been
carved, not in single or isolated motifs but in a profuse series of
compositions so that stone flows into stone or is mirrored by another
in patterns engraved in low relief. The art is balanced in panels
horizontally and vertically in symbols of which the main elements
are concentric arcs and axes. These latter implements have splayed
cutting edges like the big, prestige axes from the Carnac

The last stone in my photos has 3 horizontal hand sized holes about 10 cm deep similar to
52 at Newgrange (which was built supposedly around 300 years later).
Nobody cares about me and no one ever will. Everyone always replaces me, because it’s not that difficult to find someone better than me. I feel so worthless, unwanted and like I could never ever be good enough.
