Jonathan Toews waits to discover whether or not he’s made Team Canada( ಠдಠ)
The word sexy is sexy. That’s how culture works. All language is descriptive. If you’re not “trying too hard” you’re trying hard not to. Irony is seen as a filter on sincerity; in truth both irony and sincerity are filters. In its pure form the data is too powerful.

New York based designer Paulina Ho created a blog of simple type illustrations based on personal day-to-day experiences.
like it should go without saying but we are so societally fucked up that sometimes it helps to be reminded: basically every trauma victim feels like they don’t have a right to their own emotions because of the assumption that someone else might have been abused or assaulted “worse.” THIS ISN’T A COMPETITION THOUGH! your feelings about your Bad Things are worthwhile and the fact that someone else may have suffered doesn’t invalidate them at all.
you deserve care and sympathy as much as anybody else does. ignoring yourself because another person is also hurting only makes your own recovery harder. EVERYONE feels guilty about their emotional needs, which is sad as hell.
(i’m talking from experience as an abused kid who constantly compares myself to other people and assumes i don’t have the right to dwell on my problems because everyone aches. THIS SHOULD NOT BE THE CASE FOR ANYBODY. if we’re all unwilling to focus on working through our shit because other people also have shit we are just gonna be in an emotional sewer LITERALLY FOREVER)
i would also warn against downplaying other people’s issues, but i’ve never met any trauma victims who have done that. just people who have no experience with trauma. GO FIGURE.
