I want endless possibilities,
I want Intimacy,
I want truthfulness,
I want a soft place to land from my own heavy hand,
I want Light,
I want excursions whether they be intellectual or sensory stimulating or just for the hell of it,
I want Laughter,
I want a nonjudgmental shoulder for my tears,
I want a partner of consciousness for this journey called Life,
I want the Reality of my Dreams, and someone to witness it,
I want Passion,
I want Stability,
I want sunsets and sunrises,
I want to Build something together, it doesn’t have to an Empire, hell we can start with a coffee table,
I want Love,
I want more than I can name,
I want to Feel,
I want What I Give,
I give so much,
I give so much of myself,
And it’s ok that you can’t give it back to me,
But I can no longer accept so little in return.
Why We’re Attracted To People Who Are Wrong For Us
Mind Body Green writes:
I’m asked this question all the time: "Why am I attracted to people who are wrong for me?" And the answer is quite simple, actually:
Because your wounded self is doing the attracting.
Now, I know the term “wounded self” can sound a little intense, so let me explain. We all have two selves: the “little self” (or the wounded self, the ego) and the “Spiritual Self” (the higher self, adult self, or soul).
The wounded self is the part of you that feels incomplete. It questions your worth and value; it doesn’t feel whole, or it feels flawed in some way. My wounded self is the “little me” who wonders if I’m truly lovable.
On the other hand, we also have a Spiritual Self. This is your higher self, your soul. It’s the part of you that’s connected to love, truth, wisdom and peace within. Your Spiritual Self knows, without a doubt, how lovable and valuable you are. In many ways, it’s the opposite of the ego.
At any given time, we are operating from one of these two selves. Many of us, unfortunately, operate from the viewpoint of the ego most of the time. That is, we believe we’re insignificant and powerless in some way, and we’re trying to make up for this lack.
The ego looks for things on the outside to find validation and completion. It believes once it gets more (money, a better partner, a better job, a better house, more vacations, etc…) it will finally be happy.
But … it’s never happy. Not for long, anyway. Because the ego’s very nature is to feel incomplete. Therefore when you live through the perspective of your ego, you’re destined to feel like something’s missing. Life through this lens is not very fun.
The ego gets highly activated when it comes to romantic relationships, because relationships are where we hold the most wounding.

He wrote this list on his bulletin board on his door, where I normally write weekly list of things he needs to do, like;
-take lunch bag out of backpack.
-put away folded clean clothes
So as not to have to repeat myself so many time the I end up snapping. It’s working pretty well.
But here’s what he wrote…
-play with Legos
-dress in pj
-try to sneak toy in bed
-put toy back
-get in bed
Hahahahaha. My kid.

such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.
It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.
I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.
