If you look for the light, you can often find it. But if you look for the dark, that is all you will ever see.

Alright. This has more info, if that makes you feel better.
My significant other is in a horrible household, with verbal and emotional abuse. Click the link and read, please.
I will be sending her $300 of my artist alley money, and I will have a donation jar (which ALL of that money will go to her) but even still, donating here if you can’t either go to Tomodachi Fest (October 3-5, Boise Idaho) would be super awesome. She is a fellow cosplayer and it would be great to get her and her pup back here to Idaho so she can be safe, healthy, and able to attend conventions again!
Please. If you can’t donate, share.
Thank you for having a heart ❤

Dahlia, how do I deal with people who treat me like garbage? And how do I get people to like me when I'm not worth liking? You're so strong and independent, I thought you'd be great to help me!


"First off, you’re not garbage and you do not deserve to be treated as such. You are a human being, and you deserve respect."


"Well, whether a person likes you or not, that’s their problem. You’ll wear yourself out trying to make everyone like you. You need to accept that some people just won’t like you. It’s a sad thing, but you need to accept it!"

"If the people treating you like garbage call themselves your ‘friends’, then as wild as this sounds.. you need new friends. Leave them behind. Do not say anything to them that would hint at this fact. Stop speaking to them. Cut off all ties with them. If it is your family, and you are under the age of legal adulthood, then you need to hang in there. Find a confidante, someone you trust, and know will be in it for the long run."

"Please, don’t try to pretend to be someone you’re not. You will find someone to like you, and the first step is liking yourself."

"Please take care of yourself."

The adventure-a-day train is up to a triple.

Bipolar Disorder Masterpost:
I was diagnosed as bipolar just under a year ago and I didn’t really understand it fully-my parents refuse to acknowledge the diagnosis’s so I found it really hard to cope. I hope these resources make your lives easier even if it’s in a small way.

Siblings… ya either love ‘em or hate ‘em. There’s no in between! Sometimes, ya wanna punch the lights outta your own big brother and hug him… at the same time! Ugh.


But look, they’re your family. Ya gotta look out for the younger ones, and maybe there’s a thing or two you can learn from your older ones. Emphasis on the maybe.


I know it ain’t all fun and games… and sometimes they can be damn mean… but try to forgive ‘em. They’re people too. They’re gonna make mistakes, just like you and me.


Oh, and if you’re the only kid? Consider yourself one lucky son-of-a-bitch.

We need to find the courage to say ‘NO’ to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.

You are fighting so hard and I am so so proud of you. I know you’re tired, but please don’t give up. I have so much faith in you. Like countless times before this, you can and will do this.

Just a touch of venting about things. More of writing down thoughts, really.

hey, listen, don’t get down on yourself if you make a mistake!


mistakes are a part of life, and everyone makes them!!! they’re natural!!! sometimes mistakes are especially difficult to admit if they hurt someone else, and you may not want to accept full responsibility for the things you do wrong or attach yourself to them!!! it’s scary, and it can be painful, and ibuki knows how you feel!! ibuki is tempted to blame the guitar sometimes when the string snaps, even if ibuki is the one that crimped and wound the strings to begin with.


but it’s important to be honest and genuine about the things you do wrong!!! nobody’s perfect, and everybody knows that! by accepting that you’re not perfect, even if you are wonderful, and you will mess up and make mistakes, you can better equip yourself with dealing with them and keep them from happening in the future!!!


everyone can learn and grow from their mistakes amazingly by admitting them, and ibuki thinks you’ll do a fantastic job out there if you keep that in mind!!! you’ll make mistakes, but be ready for them and tackle them head-on with willingness to accept them and accept the things you do as things you do, and you’ll be rockin’ away in no time!!!

you’re all great, and your mistakes don’t sum up everything about you!!! they’re just one small part of your amazing self, don’t forget that!!!
