    There are so many beautiful people here- with such an embracing and empathetic power that it touches so many of us, yet they remain oblivious to their own true selves, instead having a distorted view through a variety of factors- such as the archaic and stupid societal 'moral...

    How do you love yourself?

    I have struggled with this for a long time. I'm lost and drowning and sometimes staying a float. Rarely ever do I fly. I know in order to open myself up to fully live my life I have to first love and accept myself. But how? How do I go about doing that when it is so deeply...

    Yes, I Really Do.

    I made this group a while ago.  It was actually inspired by a bunch of people in my circle adding themselves to groups with titles to the effect of "I am ugly" or "I don't like myself."  Having dealt with my own lack of self-acceptance and self-love...

    "You can search throughout the entire universe

    for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself , as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." ~Gautama Buddha

    And Everyone As They Are!!

    To actually look into your own mind and to use it is fantastic!  To stop looking into the minds of other people, into their 'Kingdoms' is wonderful to start with.  To do art in which other peoples minds are conveying to my hand I do all the time, which might frighten...

    Don't like your body?

    CHANGE IT or learn to love it. Complaining about how "fat/skinny" you are is NOT going to do you any good. No one cares about how you feel. No one is going to help you if you don't help yourself. So, if you are too fat, get on the treadmill and give me 3 miles everyday! if you...

    You must realize that you are a beautiful

    person. WE ARE BEAUTIFUL CREATURES! Our bodies are sacred. Self-harm does nothing but overshadow your current issues. Your issues do not go away by degrading yourself. They are still prevalent. You mustn't bring a blade upon thine own flesh. That blood you release is not meant...

    There isn't anyone who knows my true hopes
