Things that are wrong with how your body looks:
3. Literally nothing
Pride flags for some of the more so-called “unconventional” genders and sexualities. This is for the people who don’t always feel like they are welcome or a part of the LGBTQ+ community. We may not receive the recognition and representation we deserve, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t here.
The Selfie (x)
It’s okay to feel sad, and it’s okay to not be okay straight away when something crappy happens.
life hack: eat well. drink lots of water. cut toxic people out of your life. realize you don’t know everything. realize you don’t have to give your input to every subject. realize that listening is often more important than speaking. try to exercise regularly. try to challenge yourself. don’t romanticize other people. don’t blame yourself for other peoples’ faults. think critically about yourself. surround yourself with people who listen to you. listen to others. be a friend to get a friend. realize the you in your head is a figment of your imagination. read lots of things. erase your self image and replace it with something mutable and always changing. be kind to animals. recognize you’re a very small creature made of stardust situated in a spatio-temporal fold you have no means of seeing beyond and that the only things that will last after your death are the good things you manage to do for others and the love you share. don’t feel bad about enjoying silly things, don’t let other people cow you into silence. fight for what you believe in. remember that you were created in the image of god. remember that you are perfect. remember that your existence is complex and cannot be reduced to trite aphorisms or a list of subjective characteristics. remember that none of this advice may apply to you. remember your family. remember where you come from. arm yourself for the future. arm yourself for the world. take care of yourself. you are never alone.

Check out my new blog post on Wordpress featuring photography from Josh Renaud! It was super fun to shoot in the DUMBO area and the pizza afterwards was amazing.
Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope.
I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love.

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.
2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.
3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.
4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.
5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.—Five things I am trying very hard to accept (via aumoe)
