The 3 M’s of Hair Care
• Minimize breakage
• Maximize growth
• Maintain progress
people who make you feel better about yourself when you’re sad are so important
Here’s a fun game!
- Pick a task that’s been hanging over your head for weeks
- Do it
- Realize it only took about 15 minutes to actually accomplish
- Compare 15 mins to the amount of time spent berating yourself for not doing the task
- (adjust results for guilt inflation)
- Completely fail to apply what you’ve learned to any other aspect of your life
how did you know that I needed this right now?
"You shouldn’t ask someone to do something for you that you won’t do for them. Now if they just do it on their own then that is a bonus or a blessing"
"don’t gain the world and loose your soul"
"Stop beating yourself up. You are a work in progress - which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once."

If it is unappetizing : Do not eat, date, or sign up for it. If the mere though of it is depressing: do not major in it, sit through it, or devote your life to it. If it is not important to you: do not do it because it is important to someone else.
You will thank yourself..

Thanks love ❤️.
be mindful. not. to let oppression become the definition of your skin. your gender. your non gender. your non sexuality. your sexuality. or anything about you. be mindful that oppression is a thing outside of you. that is always begging to come inside. it is not your given name. you know what your name is. and if you are trapped in the fog of forget. spend the nights and the days re.membering your name.
oppression is the the thing that wants to become your name. do not allow it."

See, i like the person that you are but, i’m in love with the person that you have potential to be.
And all your dreams sharing with me, and your secrets baring with me. and the flaws, you don’t even gotta mention to me.
