curl your lashes. you don’t even have to put on mascara. sometimes it’s the little things you learn to appreciate about yourselves

go to a plant nursery and pick up a few nice house plants. I bought 3 nice house plants for just 9 bucks when I was sad one day and now I have a bunch of fresh herbs that make my room smell awesome
You sat reading aloud next to the tiny planted Groot. He had
been growing well since sacrificing himself and you hoped he would talk soon.
You never met full sized Groot but between the stories and how much time you
spent sitting with Baby Groot, you were pretty sure you would have loved him. The
group was supposed to be going into the city on the planet you just landed so
that they could collect some general supplies and maybe intel. You hated going
outside so you opted out and just gave Rocket a brief list in exchange for you
staying with Groot.
It was always a little miracle for Scott to wake with Reyes next to him. Seeing the man so peaceful and unguarded seemed to Scott an amazing gift, so in the few ocassions he actually had the opportunity to spend the night with his boyfriend Scott always asked SAM to quietly wake him while Reyes was still sleeping, so he could watch him cuddled against him, even breathe, lost in the land of the dreams.
Again with the “mornings in the tempest” things.
> Reyes always wakes up first, he doesn’t sleep much.
> Waking up in the middle of the night to watch Reyes sleep is another Scott’s little secret, this one he only shares with SAM.
> Reyes is a blanket burrito.
> Reyes usually sleeps naked, but everytime he has the chance, he steal one of Scott’s shirts, at this point it doesn’t matter to him if it has the initiave logo or not.
> Scott is a natural cuddler, he somehow managed to wake up completly tangled to Reyes, when he finally falls asleep again while watching him.
> Scott aches for the chance to spend an entire day in bed with Reyes, but he never told that to him, so the chance always goes through his fingers when they have the time.
> Scott loves Reyes’s bed hair, and he messes up with it while Reyes is sleeping.
It was raining. Rain was generally a good thing. It watered all of the plants, gave the children puddles to jump in, cleared the sky of smog, and put most people in a good mood. Yet, rain wasn’t very good for Alexander Hamilton.
Alexander has seen a lot in his seven years of life. His dad left him and his mom when he was just four years old. Two years later, a really bad storm, a hurricane hit his town. He remembered it all vividly even though he tried to block out all the memories. He remembered the howling winds, and the rain thundering down on the thin roof. He remembered the streets flooding, and him yelling for his mom. His mom would hold him. She almost died of a sickness, but she got over it. The hurricane was devastating. It had destroyed almost all the vegetation on the small island. It destroyed houses, it destroyed electrical wires. It destroyed people. He remembered going out in the streets and seeing people floating on their backs in the water. At first, he would try to talk to them, and then furrow his eyebrows once they didn’t respond. His mom had to break the news to him that they were dead. He was shocked to say the least.

Being able to stand up for our own rights in public is a privilege many of us cannot afford. To the people who can’t even follow my blog because their parents check their search history, not being able to help us isn’t a crime. We all understand that you need to take care of yourself.
Take care of yourself. Be decorative, even in gray. You don’t have to keep telling yourself that compliments aren’t deserved and apologizing for every little thing and saying you deserved what happened to you. I know you were raised to believe you’re in everyone else’s way, but the people complimenting you don’t want to belittle yourself, they want you to talk about your talents. Say thank you when someone holds the door for you, not look down and say sorry for making them take a longer time to get where they were going.
It’s not creepy to watch other people trying to figure out how to act. You need someone to teach you emotional responses.
Consentual cuddle puddles with your non touch-sensitive abused friends are always a positive way to help your emotional life.
Mood diaries are a good way to make sure you process emotion in a better way than you were taught.
Plenty of people have different responses than you. Some people like when people sympathize with them, I personally feel like I’m their tragedy porn. You may be shy, others may be loud as hell.
Not everyone knows how to explain their abuse. Not everyone knows its abuse.
A lot of people who were abused have learning disabilities. Be patient. They probably got abused for having a learning disability too and they don’t need you adding onto the belief that they are worthless for their disability.
Just because you don’t have a lot of symptoms doesn’t mean you’re overreacting.
Just because you have a lot of symptoms doesn’t mean you’re making it up.
Emotional abuse is valid, financial abuse is valid, medical abuse is valid, neglect is valid, uncommon and unprioritized abuses are still abuses and we aren’t gonna exclude you.
“Its a poc thing” doesn’t excuse abuse. Don’t ever believe your culture specifically relies on tactics white culture considers abusive, and even if you do believe that, cultures can be problematic and you need to follow your own morals rather than your cultures bias. That belief came out of the racist “happy white family” narrative and the idea that woc are violent and CPS protecting children of color less, hence “if a Hispanic mom saw you do that” memes. This is an extremely common idea but poc shouldn’t be shut down for fearing for their life.
Trust me right now, they don’t know everything you’re doing. Breaking the rules to protect yourself is fine.
