green-tea-rex:

It’s 1am so I’m sorry for the people who won’t see this. But if you want confidence and don’t know how to get it, a really good way is to be confident in other people. When you walk into Starbucks, think, “damn, that barista’s hair is da bomb!” Or when you go to school, think, “my teacher is rocking that skirt!” When you start seeing everyone as being beautiful, at some point you realize that you’re everyone too.

When you feel you have lost everything, you still have
  • books
  • unexpected kindness in strangers
  • the rest of the world to travel
  • languages to learn
  • animals to take care of
  • volunteer work to do
  • the power of a good night’s rest
  • the changing of seasons
  • infinite things to learn
  • billions of people to meet and possibly love
  • billions of people who might love you back

Needed this today

Anonymous asked: I've been suicidal due to a traumatic experience as a child as well as abandonment issues and constant anxiety. How do you deal with this?

purplebuddhaproject:

MIND

• Saying positive affirmations three times a day (morning, mid-day, and at night)—such as “I love and accept myself,” “I am at peace in my life,” “I deserve to be happy,” “I feel good physically, mentally, and emotionally”—dispels the negative chatter.

• Focusing on the solution of what’s bothering you is highly effective, instead of fixating on the problem. Worrying only increases stress-levels.

• Reaching out to friends and/or a professional offers support.

BODY

• Practicing yoga or any form of exercise increases your energy.

• Eating a balanced diet with lots of greens, reducing processed sugars, and drinking lots of water is not only healthier for your body, it also nourishes the mind. In the book The Ultra Mind, author Mark Hyman correlates how “junk” food can affect our moods and diseases such as depression.

Sleeping is important, ideally eight hours. You’ll feel refreshed and a lot less prone to making poor choices.

SPIRIT

• Acknowledging your emotions instead of burying them with alcohol, sex, food, etc is much more responsible, because you’re 100% in charge of your own happiness.

• Finding at least five things to be grateful for shifts the focus from what you perceive as missing in your life.

• Forgiving others and most of all yourself is necessary in order to let go and move on.

• Praying, journaling, and meditating increases inner calm.

• Listening to your intuition can save you from needless suffering.

Namaste,

Forrest Curran

The minute someone decides to walk out of your life, that is the same moment in which the opportunity and space opens up for someone who actually deserves your love to finally walk in. Remember, everyone has baggage, so don’t be ashamed of yours. Be patient and find someone who loves you enough to help you unpack. (via stevenrosas)

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any. Alice Walker (via psych-facts)

unskinny:

Stop apologizing for the things you enjoy eating.

Stop apologizing for the things you enjoy wearing.

Stop apologizing for how you prefer to spend your day.

Stop apologizing for the things that make you happy.

Dermatillomania

Hello, so I have dermatillomania and trichotillomania. My trich is less evident; it spikes up when I am stressed. I think my derm is worse because I currently have quite a few scabs on my face and chest and thighs, pretty much anywhere that gets acne and is easy to reach. Just now I looked up pictures of other people with derm who have somewhat recovered from it and I almost cried. If you have derm or trich, look up recovery pictures. I can’t promise it’ll help you, but it helped me so it’s entirely possible for you.

You are meant to fight. When you are sick, your body fights for its right to function. When you hold your breath, your body fights for its right to breathe. There are billions of tiny events—from the surface of your skin, down to the very cells of your body—that have to happen in order for you to be simply sitting here today. If your most minuscule parts haven’t given up yet,

Why should you?
