Advice, Confidence, and Energy: punk @NUEPORTS i took the same energy i used to hate myself and turned it into confidence that's how you recycle 9/30/17, 3:35 AM 194 RETWEETS 401 LIKES naamahdarling: mediokurrr: catastrofries: mediokurrr: Can i get a step by step on how to do this? So far for me it’s been something like: 1. Become aware of how and when you tearing yourself down. 2. Now that you can catch yourself doing it. Offer counters to the negative self talk. A really useful thing I read was to talk to yourself almost the way you would child. Gentle and patient. Even when they fuck up. 3. Take time to celebrate your small accomplishments. You’ve been attacking yourself for every little mistake. Apply that same fervor to the positive things in your life. Did the dishes even though you didn’t want to? Fuck yeah! Got up and took shower? YES!!! You are taking positive steps to feeling better. Celebrate it. 4. Make lists of things you’re good at/ like about yourself. The first time I did this the only two things in my list we’re that I liked my hair and I had good friends. It was start. 5. Don’t beat yourself up if you screw up steps 1-4. It’s counter productive. When I catch myself calling my self stupid for some mistake or other my response now is,“We don’t talk to ourselves like that anymore. What’s something constructive that could actually help solve the problem.” Most of the time that seems to work. Not always. But more and more Everytime. I hope any of that made sense. This is great advice @catastrofries Sincerely, this is the best advice. It’s easy to dismiss it and say “That would never help!” but, like, if you try it, you might be surprised.

Crackhead, Drinking, and Family: melinatedwinter: elsworth-thundermonkey: spaceghostanu: himteckerjam: abbellimento: trufflebootybuttercream: resignedshark: gladyoureg0ne: brandom82: gladyoureg0ne: brandom82: I smoke about a gram of meth a day. Have all my teeth with no cavities. I don’t steal except from corporations. I am on time, eat a lot, good blood pressure, etc. Tweaker stereotype broken. Only thing is I sleep only about 20-30 @ hours a week People like this need to be more publicized. I’m so fucking sick of the tweaker stigma. It is all about how you chose to treat your body while under the influence. And not all tweakers are sociopathic manipulative thieves. Tweakers are human beings with a heart soul and conscience. Give em a chance before you kick em down for personal choice. I promise a few of em will surprise the shit out of you. Exactly and the negative stigma it has in the eyes of society prevents me from being truly honest with friends and family. And I bet if I told my friends some would look at me totally different even though nothing changed That’s exactly what happened to me. I had been a daily user for 2 years never missed bills, never late for work, maintained healthy living habits. Until my girlfriend found a pipe. And suddenly I’m a completely different person than I was before. My whole family will barely look at me now. I lost half my friends. It so ridiculous how demonized we are for making a personal lifestyle choice that obviously never effected them. This. My health has actually improved since I’ve been using because I’ve been making a conscious effort to take care of myself. Since I’ve started using I’ve quit drinking, gotten myself to a healthy weight, starting getting my life together and I actually take time to make myself look presentable before leaving the house. There was a big rumor going around my friends circle about me using before I started, and now that I’ve been using for a year, everyone is convinced that it was a lie. I agree about the nasty stigma though… Most of my anxiety now a days comes from worrying someone’s going to find out. Wow y'all really out here promoting recreational meth use I was convinced this was satire until I read a few more comments.lol “Tweaker stigma”. You dont avoid being messy forever. EXACTLYYYYY I WAS READING THIS CRACKHEAD BULLSHIT LIKE  👆🏾😂😂😂this is the face i made when i read this bullshit lmfaoooo

Brains, Candy, and Facts: ah....the halloween season! time for skeletons brawling, witches brewing, and a little talk about whitewashing the undead so let's start out with the basics of what happens to the skin when you die. yes, it does PALE, but paled skin does not equal white skin. you can't lose pigmentation (it's in your DNA which, shocker, still influences your appearance when you're dead.) what DOES happen is the skin losing flush and drying out which greys the complexion! (veins and other factors can also give a blue-ish or purple tint!) the person stil looks pretty gone, but dark skin will not vanish. it's basically an extreme version of getting no sun *disclaimer: i am not a scientist, and some facts might be off BUT THE BASICS OF THIS STILL HOLD TRUE which means THIS...is WHITEWASHING and is not in any way accurate or ok just because they're on the hunt for brains or have no blood in their body, that does not justify taking away the pigment in a POC's skin. even if it is "a stylistic choice'" skin doesn't work that way. it's uncomfortable AND actually looks worse than if you just took the time to come up with a legitimate POC tone but how will i make my undead character look recognizably undead? i don't want to make them all white!? well here's a HANDY DANDY MINI-CHART OF COOL UNDEAD POC SKINTONES! (with original tones for reference!) Normal and that's only three examples from a multitude of skin tones (i can't do them all however much i would like to...) an easy trick for trying to figure out a nice settling place is to use "screen" or '"multiply" to place blue/grey over the existing skin tone! if you can't use that, just try your best to stay within the same range of tones as the original color! remember: there isn't an excuse for whitewashing. take time and look at the things you draw, and be wary, aight? now go draw some rad monsters!! happy halloween don't be a scrub frogopera: *cracks open a bag of candy and a jar of salt* SO, HALLOWEEN PSA TIME
