Cooling Off Instead – Healing My SJW Tendencies For the Better

  The internet has had a reputation as a cesspit for years. People are braver and more aggressive online to the point where “the comment section” is a by-word for a snake pit of vicious, circular and vindictive arguments. It shouldn't be a surprise that it’s only after this new online frontier that the phrase … Continue reading Cooling Off Instead – Healing My SJW Tendencies For the Better

When Self-Care Feels Futile, Remember This

Trusting myself enough to build habits and build a life and care for myself isn’t easy or simple. It takes resolve and power that you might feel you never had. You might feel you never earned the right to decide that you matter and deserve to exist. That's an impossible argument; there’s no objective way … Continue reading When Self-Care Feels Futile, Remember This

Real Life Is Boring But Precious: Why Not Everyone Can Be An Idealist

Political ideology is often hypothetical. The clue is in the name: “IDEA-ology”. It can be exhausting. It exhausts people to live in ideological space for too long.

Whether it’s a hypocritical triggered … Continue reading Real Life Is Boring But Precious: Why Not Everyone Can Be An Idealist

Something is Better Than Nothing

Hi I've been growing as a person. I got my autism diagnosis, which I barely believed would actually happen until it did. I've been seeing a therapist, which I barely thought would be worth it until it was. I've been focusing on myself, which wasn't worth it...until it was.

Diet Culture: We Are At A (Fat) Crossroads

Everyone knows about the horror of yo-yo dieting and fad diets and most people have been on diets for years, on and off. Even BMI, the holy grail of "health" vs "weight" used by the NHS, was really designed in the 19th century only to measure statistical averages in the population, and people are starting … Continue reading Diet Culture: We Are At A (Fat) Crossroads

Can We Make Them Understand?

why-mean-comment-section-online-philosophy-self-care

Please read Part 1 first! How to escape the catch 22 of the internet filter bubble keeps me from posting, a lot more than is cool to admit.
