NGL because I wasnt a huge fan of the style (Also I hated Midousuji so much) I stared at Yowapeda for a long time like:
But then I actually watched the first episode and now I’m like:
I think tumblr has left a lot of us emotionally stunted. This is a great community for empowerment, catharsis, or coping, but those things aren’t recovery in and of themselves. Comparatively, they’re easy when compared to the painful self-reflection and real-world scenarios you’ll have to encounter on the road to true recovery. Not only does Tumblr not focus enough on recovery, but there’s almost a disdain here for the very notion.
There’s a lot of time spent validating everything. “Your symptoms are valid! Your responses are valid! Your depression is valid! Your coping is valid!” Well, yeah, all that stuff is definitely valid, and understanding that is important step in recovery, but it’s certainly not the final step. All that stuff is valid in the same way a baby chewing on a teething ring is valid, and there’s nothing to be embarrassed about if your recovery is still in its infancy, but Tumblr almost encourages you to stay there, to never grow out of it.
There’s a difference between what’s valid and what’s healthy, what’s best for you. I recently saw a post that validated people who stay in their room all day. Is that a valid response to anxiety? Sure. Is it a healthy response? Hell no, and there isn’t a person on Earth who can convincingly make the argument that the best thing you can do for your anxiety is to never leave your room.
Or how about those “how to care for a _________” posts? They’ve got some great tips there, and a lot of what they say is true, but you cannot reasonably expect people to coddle your issues, insecurities, or self-perceived inadequacies. Your recovery has to come from you. It has to be a difficult decision you make with yourself and carry through with because you need it. Your recovery can’t come from hoping other people will validate you.
No one should be ashamed of where they are in their recovery process, but there’s also no reason why you should be in the same place with your issues as you were in 2010.
Your final goal is not validation. It isn’t empowerment. It isn’t finding a way to get through the day. It isn’t being comfortable with your problems, nor is it accepting that they’ll never go away. The final goal is health. The final goal is happiness. The final goal is contentment. The final goal is recovery.
If Naruko and Imaizumi aren’t endgame I dont want to live on this planet.
I’m only on episode 10 but THOSE DORKS
'I dont want him to know I'm secretly training'
my LIFE slipped
sometimes manually but if you select outside of your lineart and increase the selection size (In sai it’s Selection menu then the one(1) key and you do it a couple times depending on the size)
photoshop has a stroke tool that can do it too
You have to have neat lineart though or it will show
I only started referring to myself as Star because the nickname became prevalent when I was a homestuck.
I used to go by ‘Ashe-Star’ so a lot of my older friends call me Ash or just my real name ‘Ashley’
I changed my username to starexorcist and then a lot of people just started referring to me as ‘Star’ and because I ended up being kinda sorta ‘well known’ in the Homestuck fandom it kinda stuck.
REASONS YOU COULD HAVE LOST A FOLLOWER:
- Someone deleted a blog
- Someone left your fandom
- Someone is overwhelmed by their dash
- Someone doesn’t appreciate you [GOODBYE AND GOOD LUCK]
- Someone needs to take some time away and can’t be tempted by your blog
- They don’t like something you love (yes, it’s okay, man! This is why we create the dash we want)
- They feel more comfortable keeping a slow dash and stalking others
- Tumblr is a dick sometimes
Not reasons you lost a follower:
- You suck
Stop worrying. I am not kidding, dudes, stop worrying, stop commenting, know that we all create the dash we want, know that we don’t delete a blog with the hope of having someone feel sad that they are down a follower. Know that it’s better to post what makes YOU happy than what makes others happy.
That insanely popular blog you love too? It loses followers every day.
That underrated oc? It does too. But the people who stay are the ones who matter the most to that one person.
If you value the loss of people who don’t stay over the loyalty of the people who do, you’re missing the point.
I get it. It hurts. But take a step back. Remember why you are here. Think about the people who love you. They are going nowhere.
