why do i love this picture

ninth-00  asked:

Hi! Im super self conscious of my looks and rarely take pictures of myself because I end up feeling worse. I want to love myself like you seem to. Do you have any advice?

I’m really insecure and anxious myself that’s precisely why i take so many pictures! so i can get used to seeing myself, it helps to counter the way i see myself in my head
and well getting people’s attention is nice too
i guess “fake it til you make it” was the best advice in my case, if you constantly say/think good things about yourself you’ll start believing it at some point

First three: effortless pictures I drew on my desk
Bottom two: pictures my 4 year old sister legitimately asked me to draw

(Just so you can see into the mind of a toddler, for the first picture she asked “can you draw spy?” And I said “why?”. She said “because he loves rainbows”, and when I asked what I should draw him doing she said “making a statue”. The second one was a result of her drawing pictures of herself and a few others in dresses, she asked me to draw spy in a dress, and i quoted her)

Depression has two faces… now you might ask, “why did you take a picture of yourself crying??” To prove a point. To be transparent…

Lemme tell you a story: One year ago my best friend Charlotte & her family- my 2nd family- disowned me. They called me toxic. They literally said I couldn’t be around anymore, because I was bisexual… That event brought my worst fear to life… That someone would abandon me for being me; even when I gave my best… I constantly struggle feeling inadequate or undeserving of love from this. And there was a time when I lacked any motivation to care for myself or socialize. I figured, “They didn’t love me, so why would anyone else? Why does it matter?” Now, if I see her or her friends, they look at me like I’m a disease…. I would have liked an apology, or to have been given a reason so that I could apologize. I deserve closure. I never got it. Instead I learned to cover it up well. And it was extremely harmful.

So why did I take a picture of myself crying? A while ago I informed you all that I was seeking help for my mental health. And it helped. I finally had some closure. I was diagnosed with severe anxiety and depression. It helps knowing… and much like a person takes a picture of them-self before a diet, I wanted to remember. This is from a few months ago, but it’s a reminder that learning to stop deceiving myself is an imperfect process. It’s not easy accepting I’m not perfect. That I don’t need to expect perfection from myself. To accept I’m worthy… Despite everything, I’ve learned I can’t compromise on the heart that was given to me; to be supportive and cherishing and loyal to those who matter to me. I still believe in giving my best for those who deserve it; and even those who don’t. Because I can’t compromise myself. I may stumble, or lack the motivation to get out of bed sometimes. But I will be there for those who need me. My Creator has given me this adversity to empathize when it’s needed. I won’t see this as a wound. I’ll see it as a reminder that life isn’t perfect, but it’s what you choose to do in pain that can make it a miracle. So choose to love and accept and forgive.

My favorite pictures of Tom (Peter).

Do you ever think about how michael got trashed during the extra life stream and would not shut the fuck up about how he was having a baby

and how he turned into a facebook mom and wouldn’t stop posting pictures of iris once she was born

and how he talks about how much he loves his wife and child

idk bout you, but i really love how the guy with the reputation to be a loud, angry asshole is one of the sweetest husband/fathers ever

Harry Fic Recommendation Post

There are so many great blogs and great fics out there that I think deserve more love, so I thought I would do up a post. I have probably missed so many blogs but I will be doing another post when I hit one thousand followers.

I’ll put the blog first, then some of their fics I love in particular with brief descriptions.

Some of the fics don’t have titles, so the description is the link.

@pendantstyles 

  • Adore - Harry makes a realization
  • Home - Harry being asked about the picture of you in his wallet
  • Talk to Me - giving Harry the silent treatment after getting sick

@harrylillies

@hardliquorhaz

  • Shakespeare - amazing series in which Harry is a poetic frat boy who just so happens to be the TA of your new English class. A perfect blend of romance and angst, does contain smut so be warned.
  • Break M’Own Rules - in which alcohol and pricks make for a messy, angry Harry

@harryslittlelovehandles

@wroteasongabouther

@heart-attack-harry

  • Running on Empty - fainting into Harry’s arms at the gym is one way to get his attention, right?

@harryforvogue

@band-blogging

  • Ruins -  you, along with hundreds of others, are living in a post-apocalyptic society brought upon earth by nuclear war. The effect of this is long-lasting and only allows you to see the sun one every two years. I love this fic a lot, it deserves so much more love and I really hope there will be a part two.

I’m so sorry if I haven’t included your blog in this post, I probably love your blog and have just forgotten to give you a mention. Keep writing more amazing stuff because I love it all!

To Jungkook you’re just a girlfriend. - pt.2

[pt.1] [p.2] [pt.3 End]

The more I thought about him, the more I couldn’t stop my tears from falling. But at the same time, the more I thought about this whole situation, the more I feel as though I was overreacting. He was right, I’m only his girlfriend - we’re not tied down to one another and he can hang with whoever he wants to hang out with. But her. She’s always liked Jungkook even though we’ve been together for this long, she never gave up on him and he knows what feelings she has for him. Do you blame me for being insecure? For being scared of the fact that I might end up losing the man I see my future with because of her? But it’s all too late now, there’s no use in being scared, or insecure because it all happened. Everything he ever assured you of, that they’ll only ever remain as friends, that he won’t do anything to lead her on, that he won’t hurt you like that, all those things he said, they meant nothing because those are all the things he did. 

I hear a knock on my door and I dreaded who stood behind it, but to my pleasant surprise I guess it wasn’t Jungkook.
