Be The Best That You Can Be - Recovery Blog

If you are feeling lonely today — like no one understands you, I just really want to encourage you to not hide in a cave. Talk to someone who loves you about how you are feeling. Let them into your secret world and your secret thoughts.

Don’t keep your feelings shoved down, it only brings more pain. You don’t deserve to spend your life in agony. You deserve community. You deserve people who embrace you and remind you to be gentle with yourself.

Even if they don’t understand you, they love you, they want to hear what you have to say. They will listen. They will hug you. They will help you to remember that loneliness isn’t your fate.

With love,

Dele

Body image and confidence are so frustrating because somedays you feel like you’re the shit, and other days you can be 300% certain that you resemble a potato.

IF YOUR BOYFRIEND MAKES JOKES ABOUT YOUR BODY, WEIGHT, EATING DISORDER, RECOVERY, ETC, MAKE A JOKE ABOUT HOW HE’S SINGLE AND THEN WALK OUT THE DOOR BECAUSE THAT IS SOME FUCKEN BULLSHIT AND YOU ARE A BAD BITCH WHO DESERVES BETTER OK OK

AND YOUR GIRLFRIEND TOO BECAUSE EATING DISORDERS/BODY IMAGE DOES NOT AFFECT ONLY GIRLS IT ALSO AFFECTS A LOT OF BOYS

There is so much truth in this.
I have lost 130 pounds and there are so many times where I feel like I am back where I was and just hating myself. There is so much mental work to be done in this weigh loss/lifestyle changing journey.

Don’t stop believing in yourself. You’re capable of amazing things. Stay strong ♡♡

what’s funny about this if it were the other way round and a guy dancing with 3 naked/showering girls there would be a massive uproar about it

You know what funny is almost every single music video these days has females dancing half naked in it and no one actually bats an eye. It’s a social norm now. However when Marina does the opposite she has people call her a hypocrite. Since when are men above being objectified? It’s almost like getting a glimpse of what women have to go through everyday. Not nice is it.

but you dont fight sexism by being a sexist yourself……you think thats gonna teach them???

Marina created an alter ego - Electra Heart. She objectifies men through this alter ego to explore women’s roles in societies and pop culture. Electra Heart is all about being the archetypes of the sexual female and the archetypes of the bitch -pretty, sexually powerful, seductive, productive, etc.
So she isn’t really saying ‘I’m bored of being objectified, lets objectify someone else for a change’.
She’s saying ‘look what happens when the men are naked and I’m clothed. Look at how much power that gives me, how much control.” She uses the established norm of objectifying girls vs the casualness of objectifying men to point out its stupidity.
She’s trying to point out the differences between players and sluts, men with game vs girls who can’t keep their legs shut. Its about the double standard.
This is one clip from a video for one song from an entire album. The song explores female sexuality, and the archetypes of being a ‘home wrecker’. The rest of the album goes on to explore these themes in deeper ways, looking at the negative and positive.

I just had a grown man tell me to “go make me a sandwich” as I was doing his pourover

I told him I didn’t understand what he meant because we’re a coffee shop, and he was like “oh it’s a joke” and I said I “didn’t get it” and he went “it’s funny because you’re a woman working in a kitchen”

And I just stared at him until he got how stupid he sounded

let them feel their ignorance burn into their souls

1. Because a woman brought into this world will inevitably be given pepper spray “just in case.”

2. Because by sixteen, a young girl knows how to avoid being sexually assaulted, while a boy of the same age does not fear sexual assault in the slightest.

3. Because a girl who mocks men is a bitch, and a boy who mocks women is joking.

4. Because a girl who has sex is a slut, and a boy who has sex is a man.

5. Because in a murder, the killer is at fault, but the blame of rape is often put on the victim.

6. Because we teach girls how not to get raped instead of teaching anyone simply not to rape.

7. Because a woman should put more clothes on if her outfit makes a man uncomfortable, because his self control is her responsibility.

8. Because feminists just need to chill out.

9. Because a 22 year old sex-obsessed virgin can murder 7 people, and the problem is that someone should’ve just slept with him.

10. Because not all men are predators, but yes, all women are prey.
