Breaking Down the Breakup

There are plenty of challenges I am currently untangling. One of them is my recent breakup. Two weeks ago I parted ways with my girlfriend of a year and a half. 

It hasn’t been easy but I now have the opportunity to practice the many things I advise others going through a breakup. I figured why not share this experience with you all. Maybe you’ll find something useful in it. 

Things that I am practicing:

  • Coming back to myself. Relationships get us accustomed to being one half of a whole. We are used to saying good morning and goodnight to someone. There is a constant other presence there. When that is gone, it can leave us feeling rootless. 
    • Coming back to yourself helps us to forgive, let go, and be grateful. 
    • This act of greater self-presence and self-remembrance aids in centering and reorienting ourself in our naturalness. 
  • Reclaiming energy leant out. There are parts of our energy that we invest in our relationships. If that relationship ends, the lingering energy can get us stuck in certain cyclic experiences and habits. Calling back that energy helps both parties to move on. 
    • How exactly to accomplish this abstract practice is a matter of personal discovery. 
    • Art, energy work, and breathing techniques are a good place to start. Also burning things. 
  • Reorienting my intentions for the future. It is time I re-evaluate why I would seek a romantic partner and what I would seek in such an individual. 
    • At the moment, I have my focus on my studies anyway. I am not actively seeking anything or anyone. 
    • Priorities, standards, and desires should be examined and accounted for. 
    • I am not controlled by the need for emotional validation, sex, or possession over another person. As such I can use this time to gain a clearer vision of what my ideal relationship might be like. 

There are moments I still feel a sadness. But where I feel that sadness also reminds me of where my heart is, and that it is still working. And for that I am grateful. 

Namaste my friends.

Why Bad Blood isn’t sexist.

A song Dissection. 

sexist definition: relating to or characterized by prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.

’Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood (We are on bad terms)
You know it used to be mad love (we use to be friends)
So take a look what you’ve done (You’ve done something)
’Cause baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey! (once again, we’re on bad terms)
Now we’ve got problems (We’re on bad terms so now we have problems)
And I don’t think we can solve ‘em (I don’t think we can solve our problems)
You made a really deep cut (You hurt me really bad)
And baby, now we’ve got bad blood, hey! (we’re on bad terms)

[So far there is nothing Sexist about this. There was nothing prejudice, there were not stereotypes and no one was discriminated against. ]

Did you have to do this? (Did you have to do this?)
I was thinking that you could be trusted (I thought I could trust you)
Did you have to ruin what was shiny? (We had a good relationship)
Now it’s all rusted (Now we have a bad relationship)
Did you have to hit me where I’m weak? (This could be interpreted differently. Maybe the said person took advantage of a vulnerable state or something.)
Baby, I couldn’t breathe (I couldn’t breathe / I was shocked / it bothered me / ect. Describing her feeling.)
And rub it in so deep, Salt in the wound like you’re laughing right at me (she felt mocked, or hurt by this person. Describing her feeling.)

[Once more, nothing about these lyrics depict any sexism. Most of the lyrics are Taylor directly talking to the person about how she felt.]

Oh, it’s so sad to
Think about the good times
You and I (It’s sad to think about the good times we had. Once again talking about her feelings)

[Nothing sexist is mentioned here]

Did you think we’d be fine? (Did you think we’d go back to normal?)
Still got scars in my back from your knives (I’m still hurt from what you did)
So don’t think it’s in the past (So don’t think it’s over)
These kind of wounds they last and they last (Things like this don’t just become forgotten. )
Now, did you think it all through? (Did you think this all through?)
All these things will catch up to you (These things you did will catch up to you)
And time can heal, but this won’t (Time can heal things but it will not heal this)
So if you’re come my way
Just don’t (If you are planning on coming towards me or talking to me, don’t)

[Nothing sexist is mentioned above]

Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes (This is pretty much metaphorical to say sorry doesn’t fix big problems)
You say sorry just for show (You say sorry just because it looks good)
You live like that, you live with ghosts (If you live like that you live with guilt/ ghosts. idk how to explain this but I think it’s self explanatory)
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes (hey) 
You say sorry just for show (hey)
If you live like that, you live with ghosts (hey)
(Mmm) If you love like that, blood runs cold!

[Once again nothing is sexist above. She is stating her opinion that people should be sincere when they apologize or try to regain a relationship.]

No where in this song did sexism take place. However I will mention that social media has made this about pitting women against each other and Taylor Swift and Katy Perry did not. 

The Bad Blood music video dissection will be here, shortly.

Starting out with the intention of becoming reacquainted with my self-portraiteur and accidentally ending up taking outfit photos; which I have rarely ever done.

Getting to know my body as it is now… More disabled and much smaller than before, I feel like a stranger some days. Simultaneously learning to shed shame and embarrassment of doing things that make people stare. Even when I appeared fully able-bodied I struggled with this. Far too much scrutiny on the individual, at the same time, much of it is self inflicted.
