Being body positive doesn’t mean that you have to be positive 24/7. It entails learning to love the body you have. It’s a journey. You don’t always have to like your body. Part of being body positive is unlearning all of the hatred you have toward your body and that doesn’t happen over night. It’s okay to have bad days.
lez be real pals, i get really fucking bogged down sometimes. i have recently started to realize that having whimsical experiences and having heart connections with others are coping mechanisms form me and make me feel ‘spiritually rich’ as jessica would say. here are some examples of how i make myself feel better when shit feels hard. this list is really incomplete and will be very different for everyone, but maybe it will get your imagination flowing.
1. light sparklers and drink whiskey in the gnarled garry oaks on an eerie spring night with someone you love
2. bake a pie for someone or a group of people you really care about (preferably strawberry basil) and surprise them with it!
3. share food and love and words with others
3. don’t hang out with people if you don’t want to and try not to apologize for finding large group hangouts where only small talk is possible insufferable and shallow. invite only blanket forts are more my speed.
4. MAKE YOURSELF A BAKED DIP OF ANY KIND (you will never, ever regret this) and watch some fantasy movies (if you’ve never seen legend, start there)
5. dress up in fun outfits and go play outside. don’t be afraid of your imagination.
6. take pleasure in the beauty of nature and get as close to it as you can. i like to bird watch, or lie back and look at the clouds. i like to watch sunsets and splash in puddles and smell flowers.
7. adorn yourself with as many sparkly things as possible, take excessive vanity shots or just enjoy the way you look on your own
8. say the things that you are grateful for about yourself, your body, your loved ones out loud or write them down.
Calm is more conducive to creativity than is anxiety Emotional responses are as valuable as intellectual responses At times inactivity is preferable to mindless functioning Guilt and self-laceration are indulgences Listen when your body talks Rechanneling destructive impulses is a sign of maturity The only way to be pure is to stay by yourself You are responsible for constituting the meaning of things Pain can be a very positive thing Turn soft and lovely any time you have a chance
I want to spoil her. Give her everything that she wants but doesn’t need. I want to mend the pieces in her heart that have been broken by those who never cared what happened to it. I want to show her life through my eyes. Give her enough light so that she will never be swallowed by darkness. I can feel myself coming out of my shell when I am around her. I’m opening myself up to trust, honesty, and a passion that my skin has never experienced.
hurt until it starts to feel right, i will relapse every night for you. sleep until this dream is over and it will all go back to normal. when i think of you it stings. you are in everything. you cleaned up all my messes, i always was so selfish with you. i watch your ghost in the mirror, someone who looks just like you in my rearview. i still think you’re coming home so you can see how much I’ve grown my hair out, long and knotted, its grown past where my heart is.
s/o to the girls who grew up with moms who took their own physical insecurities out on their daughters and made them feel ugly know that shit’s rough but ur a blossom sugarplum who deserves to be treated well
“Society often blurs the lines between drag queens and trans women. This is highly problematic, because many people believe that, like drag queens, trans women go home, take off their wigs and chest plates, and walk around as men. Trans womanhood is not a performance or costume.”—Janet Mock, Redefining Realness
