stay strong ;*

When we miss someone,
We think about all the good things they have done and said and all the good times we have had with them.
But
We must not crumble and go back because
There’s a reason we have to miss them and not be with them.
It’s very helpful to in such a moment of weakness think about all the bad things they have said and done and why we don’t talk anymore.
It sounds silly but it really does help.

“We are linked, we are not ranked, and this is a day that will change us forever because we are together, each of us individually and collectively will never be the same again. When we elect a possible president, we too often go home. We’ve elected an impossible president. We’re never going home. We’re staying together, and we’re taking over.” ♀
~Excerpt from Gloria Steinem’s keynote speech at the Women’s March on Washington

You are an ocean; 
those who can only watch the surface
will never see your beauty,
hidden in the depths of the soul.

Red ive noticed that a few people on here have suicidal urges, selfharm, drugs, other things wrong. Including yours truly, since we all love you very much some of us would like some consolation from you. I allong with sone other would appericate it! * smooches forehead *

Self harm tw

“I–.” Red takes a second to collect his thoughts and tugs on his jacket sleeve, revealing the cracks and scars on his right ulna. “I know what that’s like. The best I can tell ya to do is to stay determined that things will get better. That’s not something I really believed in until I met the kid, but I’m tellin’ ya it’s true. Think about those who care about you and how they would react if they were told they couldn’t see you anymore. Think about how your loved ones would react if they saw you hurting yourself. If you don’t feel like you can live for yourself right now, live for those around you, because they think you mean somethin’ and that counts. My brother caught me once and I thought he’d be furious but he was practically bawling his eye sockets out. It was then that I realized what I was doing and what is was doing to him. The transition was rough, but I haven’t cut ever since. So, please, no matter what the issue is, you always have the option to reach out to your loved ones. Please don’t let them learn about it the hard way.”

How's your day? And does paint matt like kids paint or is that not good enough, is he a paint snob?

Yea he’s a bit picky on paint quality, as kid’s paint and craft paint tends to make clumps in his body, and it’s pretty painful when they harden inside of him and exit through his ‘skin’. He prefers mostly industrial paint, ‘fancy’ and 'expensive’ paints, milk paint, and white gesso!!!
