so obviously you didn't reblog directly from ieat(n-word)babies, the lovely bed and books photo, and you probably didn't notice that they were the source, but this is probably a case where it's actually appropriate to remove the source, especially since the problem is their actual url itself.
It wouldn’t let me completely delete the source, so I just deleted the post. Thanks for letting me know!
I feel the EXACT same way as what you just described. It sucks and I'm sorry and it feels good to know that at least I'm not alone. A good cuddlin' sounds real good right now though. Tonight I'll probably cuddle my cat and watch a movie that makes me feel bad about myself but I want to watch it anyway. HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER! You're not alone!
GOD I really need a cat. I live in the dorms at my university right now and have been looking for a place to live as soon as I’m out of the dorms and the ONE necessity is that it is cat-friendly so that I can have a cat to cuddle when I’m feeling low.
Hey, I know how you feel about what you posted earlier concerning anxiety. You don’t need to cuddle up with anyone, you need to start working through this stuff. That sounds harsh… I don’t mean it that way. I just absolutely know how terrible this gets and it sounds like it’s gaining power over you. You’re not alone (HI THERE!) and I hope you find the will to start addressing this.
I have been addressing it. I am seeing a therapist and a psychiatrist weekly. I know what’s triggering my anxiety. I’m facing a lot of stressors in my life that I know are making things harder on my mental self. Depression runs in my family, so along side the anxiety the depression flared up and decided to stop by with an unwelcome hello. I am taking a relaxation and meditation class. I’ve started incorporating aromatherapy techniques in my everyday life and drinking soothing, herbal teas. I’ve been seeking out healthy, new friendships. Believe me. I’m facing it all as head-on as I possibly can.
So, yes. I know I have to face things head-on and work through them, but I am. Even if I wasn’t though, my emotional body needed someone last night (and during this whole huge struggle with my anxiety and depression) and that isn’t wrong to feel. I know you are trying to be helpful and all, but what you are doing is shaming someone’s emotional needs. I’m doing a lot to care for my mental and physical needs, while my emotional needs are off balance and causing misalignment.
So, YES. I did/do need someone to cuddle/cry/talk with and that is not wrong.
Bodies are hairy. No matter the gender, your face will have hair and that is more than okay.
Your butthole is going to have some hair too. And maybe your nipples. And your tummy. And where ever else.
Stretch marks. Those are a thing. Everyone gets ‘em. If you don’t, you probably don’t have skin.
Vaginas smell. Every vagina has a scent. Don’t worry about it! (Unless something seems wrong, then go get it checked out! No need to feel embarrassed or ashamed.)
Vaginas come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, flavors. All are beautiful.
Penises come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, flavors. All are beautiful.
You don’t need to shave anything if you don’t want to. It’s tooootally not mandatory.
Sometimes people get butt acne.
You can have a vagina and want short hair and think dresses are just the worst.
You can have a penis and want long hair and think dresses are just the best.
You can wear whatever you want and style your hair however you want.
You can even think whatever the hell you want.
People might tell you that you are a girl because you have a vagina. People might tell you that you are a boy because you have a penis. People will tell you what your gender is. But in reality, you don’t have to be that gender. You don’t have to be either of those genders.
You are what you are and it’s just the worst thing if you try and hide that.
climb a tree, run as fast and as far as you can, breathe in the fresh air, wash your feet in a stream, take pictures on your camera, sit on a tree branch and eat your snacks, make a list of everything you’re grateful for in your notebook, draw pictures of all your friends, family and pets, write down all your plans for the future and everything you hope to accomplish.
