“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance, but live right in it, under its roof.”
~ Barbara Kingsolver

Healing Quotes 567

“Just a reminder that while positivity is a great tool it is not healthy to

repress negative thoughts/feelings

feel guilty for having negative thoughts/feelings

feel that you can’t express negative thoughts/feelings

Negative emotions are a part of life, and a truly balanced cognitive strategy will accept this (while working to change the balance of good to bad and teaching you coping strategies/self care/distraction etc).”

I Made a Raisin

I made a raisin. All by my itty bitty self.

Let me tell you how to do it yourself.

Drop a grape behind the microwave.

Don’t realize that.

Leave it there for about a month.

Use microwave, heat vents throwing out heat.

Find raisin when moving microwave.

Realize that you have never brought raisins into apartment since moving in. But have had lots of grapes. And that you have cleaned behind microwave about a month ago. Hmm raisin making. Kind of embarrassing.

Healing Quotes Teens 374

Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.
