On "Fixing" | "So, how do we learn to love without making it our responsibility to fix? Perhaps it comes in our expectations of love. Perhaps it starts with us meeting others as truly autonomous creatures, capable of wildly colorful growth in their own selves, in their own spirits. Maybe it comes down to learning to hold space, to bear witness, and to be vulnerable as an onlooker." | New piece from our new contributor @philipeastman on the site now! | www.ofthewolves.com
897 - Shame
👉 Head over to @mr.splice to see my process
Oh. My. God. I just accidentally blew a kiss and did my signature wave to a random woman in the elevator in my building and seductively told her to “have a great night”.....Because it’s what i do with audience members all night at the show.......fml....i got a couple steps out of the elevator and was like, nooooooooooooo!🤣🤣🤣
What is wrong with people, this is a 25mph neighborhood and I was about to turn left when I see a car driving on the left side of the road like I'm not even there. There's kids that walk around here. 🙄 #smh#shame#3UFP532
💞💔❣️ للأسف ....ليس الحب دوما يحمل لك السعادة
يمكنه أيضاً يحمل نعشك ويأتيك بالسهد يُلبسك ثوب الألم والعذاب تصافح ..إن كان الحب يدخل القلب في لحظة شرارة نظرة توقد نار العشق والحب بفنونه تُمارس .. إن ذاك الحب بهجة فرح وجنون يسعدك ثم يشقيك ..! إلا أنه لا يغادر موطن الفكر والفؤاد يبقى له حارس وتبقى الذكريات مدى العُمر يكون القلب لها مزاره تلك الذكريات تجلب مرارة الأيام وحسرة الآسى من غياب ..لكن ذاك القلب الحزين..الجبارٌ ...جبار ..
كيف له يُسامح ..! وهو من بيده كان لها الدمار وقتلَ بأمر صادر آخر نبض قلب في حُبها كانت له تُصارح ..! عندما فاجأها أن قلبهُ لها كارِهٌ كارِهْ ..!!!

When your little brother is tougher than you😂#shame
Have to say what a beautiful man. Justin baldoni hits ir out of the park with this ted talk. Where are the men? How subconscious messages form our society... Are you man enough to stand beside a woman? To be vulnerable? To connect with your ❤️ ? I wish every man in the world would see this ted talk.
YOUR PAIN IS YOUR GIFT. PLEASE READ. 👇🏼 For years, I never told anyone that I was depressed in high school.
For years, I never told anyone that I wanted to kill myself in high school.
For years, I never told anyone... ANYTHING.
I suppressed it all.
I didn't want anyone to know.
I was terrified of what people would think of me.
I was embarrassed.
I was ashamed.
I was scared.
On the outside, I was your stereotypical straight A student.
I was a good kid.
I went to Church on Sundays.
I had lots of friends.
I played soccer.
I laughed and had fun.
But on the inside, I felt like shit.
I hated myself.
Whenever I was alone, I wanted to die.
My life felt meaningless.
And I wondered if anyone would even care or notice if one day I disappeared... My eyes still swell up, even as I write this right now, sitting here in a Starbucks.
It still hurts to think about.
It was the most painful experience of my life.
And for so many years, no one ever had any idea because I never told anyone.
I HID it from everyone, including MYSELF... BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO SEE IT.
I didn't want to acknowledge it.
I didn't want to admit it.
It hurt so bad.
I tried to forget about it.
I tried to pretend it never happened.
But it was there.
It was always there, in the back of my mind.
And the SHAME was there, too.
It wasn't until this year, that I finally started to open up about it.
This year, during a leadership training that changed my life, for the first time ever, I started to share with people that I had suicidal thoughts in high school.
It was the most vulnerable thing I had ever shared.
It wasn't easy to share... It was scary.
I cried. A lot.
But it was one of the most FREEING things I've ever done in my life.
And now, as I sit here and share this with you today, I can finally look back on everything I've been through and genuinely say that I'm so GRATEFUL for all the pain I've experienced.
Because... [KEEP READING ⬇️]
