I feel like I’m getting better, and I usually just post stuff here when I’m feeling down and need to vent. But it’s good to share mu little steps in the right direction, too. After making some research on depression and anxiety (cause I can’t afford therapy, so google is my friend for now lol) I found having a fixed, well-thought schedule helps .. as it keeps you busy (so no time to wonder and sad thoughts) and it gives you a stability and certainty (so… good for anxiety). I printed out my school schedule, and included some extra activities that I have weekly, like volunteering and painting. That’s another thing… I started taking art lessons on Fridays, and I couldn’t be happier. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, plus it kinda works as therapy. And the volunteering thing is going so well, I’ve been volunteering for this non-profit called TECHO, that works all throughout latin america. I currently work in the education area, so every sunday I go to a part of my neighborhood which is really poor, and I work with kids doing recreational activities. It’s so fun and rewarding…it’s made me think bout being a teacher. Oh and talking bout studies… I’m studying “social studies” in university and I just love everything we talk bout in class; real world issues, not abstract shit I’m never going to use. What else… Love life? In-existent lol nah but real talk, I’m focused on getting better and feeling whole again…once I get to that point, I’ll allow myself to let somebody in my life. That’s pretty much the way I talk to myself now lol it’s probably going to sound crazy but I’ve been trying tell myself (out loud) things like “Flo you’re allowed to feel this way”, “Flo you’re allowed to take some time off”, “Flo, you took care of yourself today, you’re doing such a good job” haha and it does work for me, so whatever, who cares if it’s crazy. So yeah all in all things are good :) though I’m always looking out for signs of my depression coming back, cause I don’t want to be caught off guard. I’ve also been organizing my room to keep myself busy, and I write down short term goals every night (things like getting homework ready or taking my dog for a walk) that I try to cross out during the next day. Just giving you people some ideas that work for me in case you need that :). Time to go to bed, so goodnight and good vibes! Hang in there cause it does get better I swear… change what you can change to make yourself happier, and leave the rest to life.. it’s got it ways of making things work out for us in the end. Love you all.

  1. If you like someone, wait.
  2. Give lots of compliments, even if you’re shy. Everyone else is too.
  3. Change. Get a haircut, try new perfume, get new sheets. Become better than you were before.
  4. Eat healthier. Learn to cook something fancy.
  5. Get up earlier and watch the sun come up.
  6. Wear soft clothes, take a bath, drink something warm.
  7. Meet someone new, even just a friend.
  8. Become closer with your friends and your family. Call your mother. Cry with your best friend. Tell everyone how much you appreciate them.
  9. Keep your room clean. Buy some candles. Let the natural light in.
  10. Make a list of reasons why you’ll be better off without them. Believe they are true, because they are.
  11. Listen to new music.
  12. Write everything you’re thinking and feeling. Write letters. Write happy letters, sad letters, and angry letters, even if you’re never going to send them.
  13. It’s okay to be sad, but not forever. Sadness is not as beautiful as music makes it seem. Lack of sleep makes your eyes droopy, not deep. Wake up every morning and tell yourself you’re going to have a good day.
  14. Go to the library. Don’t forget to look in the music section.
  15. Remove them from your life. Get rid of the things they gave you if they make you sad. They’re not worth it. You will never be happy if you continue to hold on to the things that make you sad.
  16. Make new memories.
  17. Try to find something to appreciate in everything you do or experience.
  18. Being alone is okay, you don’t have to surround yourself with people.
  19. Become your own best friend. Buy yourself coffee and drink it alone in a cafe. Take your time.
  20. Learn to love every bit of yourself.

opinions on abortions are kinda like nipples

everyone has them but women’s are a little bit more relevant 

But all you ever see are men’s

If you think women are crazy you’ve never had a dude go from hitting on you to literally threatening to kill you in the time it takes you to say “no thanks.”

Too many young girls don’t know how to act when someone’s being inappropriate with them. They giggle or they try to brush it off. Don’t do that. Tell them to go fuck themselves - be a bitch. If someone’s being disrespectful to you, be disrespectful right back. Show them the same amount of respect that they show you.
