Ok so some of the best tactics that I’ve learned are:
1. Rectangle Breathing: Find a rectangle object somewhere around you. (doorway, window, computer screen, etc.) Trace your eyes slowly around it. When tracing the short side inhale, and while tracing the long side exhale….
please don’t make people with depression feel guilty for their lack of interest in things or their inability to motivate themselves please and thank you goodbye
on that note, please don’t make people with anxiety feel guilty about their inability to do tasks you deem simple and literally call them children and tell them to grow up because of it
RIGHT NOW IN SWEDEN
⚠️ I’m sorry if you’re really sensative⚠️
Today Nazis had a speech in Malmö, Sweden. There were about 1000 antinazi-protestors along fences making a verbal protest. No physical violence at all. Until the police suddenly stormed the group of antinazis with horses and RAN THEM OVER about 5 people were severily injured and the police troups just kept riding in full gallop back and forth. Also they ran over another civilian with a car.
After they caused all this injuries, they refused the ambulance access to the injured civilians who had been on the ground for several minutes.
And as the top of all this, they now block the entrance to the ER.
The nazis got personal police escort away from the location.
Welcome to sweden, were the police protect the nazis over everyone else.
I’m sorry for the strong images. If anyone wants me to add tags or trigger warnings please send an ask and tell me!
I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
some great quote I heard somewhere once upon a time and that is very, very true (via traffic-jam-session)
