“It is okay to want your own happiness. It’s okay to care about yourself the most. You are not obligated to sit there and smile and swallow every bit of shit everyone heaps on you. You are more than furniture, you’re more than window dressing, you’re not their shiny toy. You’re human, and you have the right to say “That was shitty of you”. You have a right to protest your own mistreatment and set boundaries for respectful interactions. The rest of the world doesn’t realize you have this right, and they will act offended and appalled when you exercise it, but it is yours.” Unknown (via creatingaquietmind)

“I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.” Kristin Armstrong (via yourhatemademe)

“It does not matter if a boundary makes sense to you. It does not matter if it seems inconsequential to you. Boundaries are the prerogative of the person who sets them. You do not know that person’s story, and they are not obligated to justify their boundaries to you. That touch that seems insignificant to you may be uncomfortably intimate for someone else. That interaction that is fine with others may trigger someone’s PTSD. You do not know more about someone than they know about themselves. Trust that they know what they are doing when they set a boundary with you, even if you do not understand why.

When someone sets a boundary with you they are saying “no.” No means no. Do not push people on their boundaries or ask for explanations that are not readily given. Doing these things indicates that you do not respect their boundaries. For many people, saying “no” once, setting a boundary, is difficult enough. Do not put them in a position where they must repeatedly do so. No means no the first time. Pushing them on it suggests a hope that you can wear them down, which is problematic at best and predatory at worst. No means no.” Ally Smells: Boundaries | Geek Feminism Blog (via brutereason)

imperfectlyxo:

Put yourself and your recovery first.

Unfollow triggering blogs. Follow inspiration and recovery blogs.

Give yourself positive reminders everyday.

Make a list of things which help you and refer to it when needed.

Accept relapses will happen, but it’s part of recovery. Learn from them.

Let yourself be helped by others.

Don’t ever give up. It will be hard, but it will be worth it.

How to support survivors: -believe what they are telling you -ask what kind of support would be helpful -offer whatever kind of support you are able to give -back them if they are seeking accountability from their abuser
What not to do: -don’t ask for details about what happened -don’t play ‘devils advocate’ -don’t pretend as if they never mentioned it and continue to treat the abuser as if nothing has changed
How to support abusers: -show them that you think abuse is not acceptable -encourage them to seek help -let them know that the survivors needs must be prioritized
What not to do: -don’t enable them by acting as if nothing has happened -don’t prioritize their needs over the survivors -don’t support them in making spaces inaccessible for the survivor

“Bear in mind, people with eating disorders tend to be both competitive and intelligent. We are incredibly perfectionistic. We often excel in school, athletics, artistic pursuits. We also tend to quit without warning. Refuse to go to school, drop out, quit jobs, leave lovers, move, lose all our money. We get sick of being impressive. Rather, we tire of having to seem impressive. As a rule, most of us never really believed we were any good in the first place.” Wasted (via princessofgenovia)

Witnesses say they asked Britney why she shaved her head and her response was, “I’m tired of plugging things into it. I’m tired of people touching me.”



i can never not reblog this



T-Pain: “That was the most beautiful thing in the world. Do you know why she was shaving her head? Because it was so important to other people. She is like, “Listen. Don’t touch my hair anymore. Stop touching my hair.” People were like, “We’ve got to make your hair before you go outside. You can’t leave.” She went … “Now I don’t have hair. What you going to do?”


The older I get the more her breakdown seems less ‘unbalanced’ and more ‘completely understandable’

I sincerely regret making fun of her and laughing about this. I wish we had all been like, “Wow, it’s disgusting that she’s been pushed to the breaking point. It’s disgusting that people treated her body like public property.”
