I think I Love myself but then I still #judge
others and compare myself to them..Wow what a real statement!! 😝I hope for some of you it hits home & not in a way to create #shame
but rather as a way to create #truth
🙏🏻✨ When we have not #fully #truly
accepted our WHOLE self it can be a painful, dualistic experience. I want to inspire you to notice this week what #triggers
you, what makes your Spirit #crawl
and to look more deeply at what YOU are choosing to avoid. Your deepest healing often lies dormant in what you perceive to be #uncomfortable #unfair
or not contrived from your own #will
- this is just from my own experience that I have come to #recognize
pattern. The Me Vs. Them attitude will never work. Me as apart of ALL OF IT is rather what I am suggesting with this Unakite + Rose Quartz Crystal Healing Necklace ✨☺️ Unakite Aligns us with “otherness”’by helping us to recognize what we have in common as opposed to what separates us. Rose Quartz stimulates #unconditionallove
and helps to accept things that seem beyond our #comfort

Director: Steve McQueen
Release Date: 2011
Starring: Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan
Rotten Tomatoes: 78%
My rating: A
This is a very brave movie from McQueen on a very taboo subject. Fassbender gives probably one of his best performances, it has a very raw and emotional feeling to it. He’s able to demonstrate a catalogue of emotions through just facial expressions. Simple but extremely effective throughout
Many of you know Sienna’s column, Femintimacy. Though Femintimacy has received a ton of positive response, you can’t deny that there’s a ton of taboo surrounding a young women who talks about things like sex, intimacy, relationships, and love. 👀
The latest femintimacy piece is up and it discusses SHAME and the reality of what writing a sex column means. Curious? We know you are- link in bio. 📖

tl;dr // the magic of the unknown is waiting for you. Take a deep breath, open your heart and let it in.
I'm not a big fan of the ocean. When I was younger? Oh FOR SURE. Running in the sand, chasing the waves, wading as far out as possible in the muddy waters of the Texas coast? SIGN. ME. UP. As an adult? HARD PASS. It’s a damn shame really, that our brilliant brains, the very thing that helps us survive, often does so through learned fear.
The thing is, something about the unknown of what lies beneath freaks me the hell out. To be able to experience the ocean in all of it’s beautiful soul cleansing glory, I have to tap into a very zen place and challenge my mind to reconsider the dread of something sucking me under (while also simultaneously pulling some wild statistics out of my mind about the odds of getting eaten by a shark, stung by a jellyfish, etc. 😳😅😶).
Okay, so. Said zen place // Deep breaths in. Like HUGE lung filling breaths through the nose, and BIG exhales out the mouth // SO many positive affirmations ie. “You are okay. You are strong. You will survive. You got this.” These tend to soften my mind, allowing for the next step to take form // Externally experience. Feel the water rush over my skin. Hear the waves crashing. Smell the salt water around me. Feel the warmth of the sun basking on my shoulders. Soak in ALL of it // Come to center. Let my heart open up. Channel the greater power that lives within me. The ability I have to simply trust. To choose to embrace in awe, instead of flailing in fear. To remember the beauty of the unknown. The magic in the hidden. The wonder in the depths. This vast horizon in front of me begging for me to explore it. All a gift from mother nature, asking me to go
The truth is that we never know what lies ahead. So we have a choice to make. Let the fear, anxiety, panic, worry, etc. control us...or we can take charge, control what we can then let go and just be // I hope you choose the latter.
How do you encounter uncertainty? How would your experiences shift if you adjusted your response and embraced it?

Dear half eaten pizza slice,
My Hoomans threw you away and I didn't know why. You were perfectly good and that's why I pulled you out of the trash to eat for later, I'm sorry that you were again thrown away. I sit and ponder what our relationship could've been like... 😪

Looking back at pictures on our Game of Thrones tour last year in Dubrovnik - looking at my new favourite app Pinterest for inspiration for more Game of Thrones yours and getting excited for April for the start of the last series 😂😱😱 #gameofthrones
So wie beginne ich nun..
Zunächst möchte ich mich einmal vorstellen und wie es zu dieser Seite gekommen ist.
Ich bin weiblich, wohne in Deutschland, bin noch 18Jahre alt und das übliche blah blah. Mache mein Abitur. Ich habe schon länger daran gedacht, so etwas wie einen persönlichen Blog zu machen und vielleicht interessiert sich die eine oder andere Person ja für mich.
Zu meiner Persönlichkeit kann ich nur sagen, dass sie introvertiert, schüchtern und in die Richtung einsamer Wolf geht. 🐺 Es werden Berichte von dem/den vergangenen Tag/en, Gedanken und Gefühle kommen. Jetzt schon eine TW rauszuhauen empfinde ich persönlich aber noch zu früh. Ich werde euch dann vorher warnen.
Remembering Martin Luther King Jr today! #mlkday
I remember this day, I was 11 and Dad had taken us on another epic school holiday adventure. Typical split family, Mum struggles with majority custody while the Dad bathes in the shining fun stuff. It was a great trip exploring the townships along the Murray river Victoria.
Look into my eyes, this kids battle harden. That’s the sadness, no child of 11 should be this stealy with a gun in his hands. I remember the power I felt once in uniform, secure, projecting the invincible hero. Honestly, I wish the gun worked. I had some scores to settle....
I’d just come out the worst year of my life. A year of being groomed by a child molester. A man. In my eyes he’d turned me faggot and there was no greater shame amongst those in my life. 4 years of being some mans play thing. I carried this for many years to come. I just wanted a father figure and was left with shame, guilt and self hate. Why me, I was disgusted in the things being done, yearned security, affection and nurturing and sometimes I liked it, it was all I had.
Make matters worse I had two teachers in a composite class hell bent on psychological warfare daily. One even got his class to point a laugh at me while doing show and tell. Those heckles from 20 or so kids created the stage for stage fright. Destroying my dream to perform. They also would take me into a side room and tell me how worthless I was, scream in my face and physically assault me. Sad creatures whom profession was to guide not abuse power. The Shit going home was wAr, if we weren’t moving escaping Mums drunken abusive boyfriend, we where witnessing violence on a scale no one should. The sad fact was we all lived in fear as he could turn in a second. Even sadder how bloody poor we were, surviving on charity to escape war.
This kid was shown the greatest abuse of power, yet soldiers on
I owe this kid my life, the magic inside was hidden away for a long time after that year. Over the next few years he’d change his outlook on people. End up in foster care, homeless, issues with substance abuse, fall out of school, write his name on trains, steal, deal, have no home security, tangible love as in affection. He survived, he’s still standing
The whites knows, Hollywood knows, but we don’t because they only told us in writing (the bible) and we don’t read. They also told us in movies but we get carried away with the entertainment.

Unresolved shame occurs when a guardian doesn't make a clear distinction between a child being bad & undesirable and an action being dangerous & undesirable. Needs-associated shame occurs when a guardian makes a child wrong or bad for asking for something instead of admitting to feeling incapable of meeting the child's need and brainstorming other ways to fulfill the need. This passes down the powerlessness, lack of self-esteem & the shame around needing others. Alternatively, if you are transparent about your inability & brainstorm other ways to help the child, they learn that it's ok to have needs and it's just a matter of finding the sources that feel capable and good about fulfilling such needs. As adults, we constantly choose people who shame us for our needs instead of being transparent and we resort to self-loathing. So a part of healing shame is acknowledging the validity of our emotions & needs and beginning to surround ourselves with trustworthy people who don't demean us for our needs and instead care enough to work with us to figure out how to meet them even when the person themselves cannot. It's important to recognize these patterns, but it's also important to do the scary, vulnerable work or asking for what we need. And it will be hard at first, because it will uproot our shame. But there is nothing more empowering and healing than asking for what you need and getting it met with encouragement and genuine concern consistently for the very first time 💛⭐️ #shame
