Hey just wondering, why don't you think cis girls should bind? Cause I'm a cis(?) girl who's questioning and the sight of my chest gives me just terrible feelings to the point where seeing myself in pictures makes me cry, and I really want to try binding to see if it helps. But if somehow that harms the trans/nb community I wouldn't want to do it. Don't feel obligated to answer this, I'm just interested in your thoughts

oh hon i don’t think cis girls SHOULDNT bind, and you should especially if it will help your body dysphoria, but it has very detrimental health effects ?? the anon who said I didn’t think cis girls could bind was referring to an ask i got a while ago from a girl who wanted to bind for…pretty much no reason. i suggested a sports bra instead, so maybe you should try that too?? for the sake of safety

There's this guy I really like and I drew a picture of him, and I really want to give it to him, but I'm terribly shy and I'm afraid he might think it would be weird or get really creeped out by me

Listen.

If someone gave me art of myself, I’d break down and cry of happiness because someone took the time out of their day to work on something to give to me. I’ve been given lots of art throughout the time I’ve run this blog and every time someone makes something for me, it makes me so happy I can’t even explain it.

I think he would be so happy and touched that you made something just for him. Go for it!

  • Someone: Stop crying they're just animated drawings
  • Me: Please just stop talking. My emotional state balances on these cartoons and if it weren't for them i have absolutely no idea who or where i would be. Amethyst and Sadie make me proud of my stomach bulge, Steven reminds me to stay optomistic no matter what, Mabel reminds me to keep my head held high and to be confident, Star taught me that i can be strong without having to be violent or brash, Pearl reminds me to never give up on a task no matter how embarrassed i feel, Garnet reminded me not to forgive people just because they say they're sorry, but that they need to work their way back up to gaining someones trust back, and these cartoons have taught me extremely meaningful things and my self-esteem and confidence would be nonexistent without them. When the characters get hurt or they get into a bad situation, i feel terrible and actually cry for them because they help me feel better about who i am and when they don't feel good about themselves, i feel sorrow for them. When i see characters again, i remember how much they make me feel better about myself. I'm so sorry you can't comprehend that, so please, stop speaking.

I finished Jamie but I’m not very happy with how he turned out (in fact I’ve spent the past hour crying because of it) I just wanted them to turn out exactly how I pictured them in my head because they’re for my mum and she’s been so sick and had such a terrible time this year, I wanted to do something really nice for her. I’m having a bad day in general so I suppose it wasn’t a good idea to make him but I had to because I’m seeing her tomorrow and I won’t get another chance to give them to her.

We just took a huge slap in the face, everyone. Its not ok, its terrible but it is ok to feel afraid and sad. 

However, don’t let that fear and sadness burrow within you. Let yourself feel those emotions, let yourself mourn, let yourself cry and scream and rage

and then dust off as good as you can. Because tomorrow the sun will rise and there will be people who love and need you and life will go on. 

We will overcome this. 

We will make it through

okay I’m all here for academic!remus but how about:

  • smart remus who does terrible in exams
  • because he’s a werewolf and he won’t find work anyway so ?? ?
  • smart remus who craves knowledge and knows so much
  • but not the important, exam stuff
  • he could know it if he revised
  • but he doesn’t really ever
  • unmotiivated!remus crushed by society’s lack of acceptance
"My mother has a terrible habit of making fun of me when i have trouble doing things that she considers to be simple. Usually this ends with me getting frustrated and quitting, which leads to her yelling about how helpless and lazy I am. I've tried bringing this up with her and asking her to stop, but she generally just turns that into another opportunity for laughing about how I'm the one with the inability to do "simple tasks". Do you have any advice on how to deal with her?"

Dannielle Says:

Hi. This is me, looking at you, telling you I was raised by a similar woman. I spent a lot of my high school time crying because I have terrible reading comprehension and because of this, I am no good at history. I would try, I would really really try, re-read things 12 times and try to make hints for myself and my mom just didn’t get it. Sometimes she would help me, but a lot of times she would say my name in (what i didn’t realize at the time) a very condescending tone and just repeat whatever it was that was troubling me. It was hard. High school was hard. 

That one thing in our relationship created a divide that I never figured out how to overcome. I somehow learned how to communicate in a different way with my mother. I wouldn’t involve her as much in my school work or writing. It took me years to recognize that I was an okay writer (I still struggle pretty often tbh). This also hindered my ability and willingness to ask for help from others. I encourage you to practice this now. Getting help from others will put you in a position where you don’t have to ask for help from your mom, since it seems she doesn’t help you in a way that ACTUALLY helps you. We all learn differently. There are plenty of people who respond REALLY well to the making-fun-of route, I don’t, you don’t, tons of us just don’t. 

If you have tried talking to your mom and you feel at a loss, try out my suggestions. However, there is power in asking again. Maybe tell her exactly what you told us. Her comments and jokes at your expense actually make things worse, but you WANT her to be someone who helps you out. Perhaps that will change things on her end? Please know there are a lot of us who experience what you are experiencing and it is very difficult and your mom is not in the right simply because she’s your mom. Your feeling are completely valid. 

Kristin Says:

I echo everything that Dannielle said - and want to add to this that, at some point in all of our lives, we realize that our parents are fallible and scarred, and that they sometimes cannot do for us what we need, or what we want to do for others around us.

Your mom is not able to be supportive to you in areas where she feels you aren’t “doing well enough,” and this is a glaring sign of someone who was also told, many times, that they were not good enough. It is likely that your mom feels very insecure about her own abilities, even though she presents a front that says she knows all, and knows better. It’s a defense… and it hurts, horribly.

The fact of the matter is that it is very, very hard to get through to someone who is battling with such big demons. Your focus, for the time being, needs to be on two things: First - your mom is the one who is misspeaking and her own struggles are causing her to say untrue and hurtful things. They are untrue. You are strong, you are capable, you are powerful, and you can accomplish the things that you want to accomplish in your own way. Second - surround yourself with people who are able to support and love you, and ask them (like Dannielle already said) for help when you need it. 

You may need to put some distance between you and your mom for now. 
Perhaps, when you are feeling stronger, you can revisit the conversation. It’s possible that she will hear you in time and begin to work on the things that are hurting her so deeply, and slowly heal some of those wounds.

I’m so sorry that you have to face this – you are certainly not alone in your experience. I believe in you. Dannielle believes in you. So many of us out here believe in you. And, deep down, your mother absolutely believes in you, too… she just can’t access that support over the clanging noises of her own insecurities.

Oh come on. People have jumped on this man. People have said terrible awful things to him. He's been mugged. I'm SURE something as insignificant as the title of a blog isn't going to send him over the edge and make him call his poor mother crying, talking about "BUT MUM THEY SAID TO GO BUGGER MYSELF." Come on. Grown man. Give him some credit. Un-bunch your panties. Besides, he's said himself he stays away from tumblr so calm the hell down.

anonymous asked:

I have some really terrible anxiety and I'm always facing anxious situations. It's difficult for me to talk on the phone and to answer the front door because I'm afraid I'm going to make a fool out of myself. I have at least one anxiety attack every day, and I cry myself to sleep whenever I am pushed over the edge. I'm really in the need of some cheering up, so may I have a reminder from North Italy? Thank you :)

Italy Veneziano reminds you that you are strong. Take small steps, set goals, and reward yourself whenever you achieve one. Write it down every time you do something you’re proud of, and on days you’re feeling down or upset, look back at those papers and draw strength from them. Take things at your own pace and you will make it. You’re a child of the universe and you’re powerful because of it!
