My therapist told me instead of hurting myself I should draw something pretty were I want to cut. This is the result. And it works, honestly. If you’re struggling with self harm I really recommend this. (Make sure you use a marker and not a pen cause pens can hurt you! )

THE PUBLIC RAPE EXPERIMENT
"A loyal TUBIAN in 2013 opened up to me and told me her story and kindly asked me to do a video raising awareness on the issue. This project was made with the best intentions and pure heart. I know it will mean something different to us all and am happy to have opened up a well needed conversation. […] I have been given a responsibility with this YouTube platform of mine and always told myself to stay true and progress towards change."

This is a must watch.

Why Self-Love and Self-Care is Important

theuniwarriorproject:

You wake up, go to school/work, do homework or take care of your household, sleep (if you can) and then do it all over again the next day. Maybe you don’t go to school and you work full time; maybe you are so busy trying to make it in this crazy world that you forget one thing: To take care of yourself. 

Stress is zero fun, it’s 10000000000% proven that it sucks (because science) and in the midst of being the hardworking, kick-ass human being that you are, you might totally forget to say, “I need to take a break.” Self-care and self-love is so important because you are nurturing yourself and meeting your needs.

I will teach my daughter not to wear her skin like a drunken apology. I will tell her ‘make a home out of your body, live in yourself, do not let people turn you into a regret, do not justify yourself. If you are a disaster it is not forever, if you are a disaster you are the most beautiful one I’ve ever seen. Do not deconstruct from the inside out, you belong here, you belong here, not because you are lovely, but because you are more than that.’

~ Azra T  “Your hands are threads, your body is a canvas”

This is for my LGBT*QIA Brothers/Sisters of color who have ever felt alone in times of need and/or had moments wherein they questioned their struggle for social justice. Please know that you are NEVER alone, because I love you all and I appreciate your daily courage, strength and commitment to combat the socio-historical injustices within our societies.
