Glitter jars -
I was taught about glitter jars during my time as an inpatient. I learnt the magic of glitter during a self-soothe class as part of an emotional coping skills lesson.
There’s no science, no counting, no acceptance and no forceful methods involved in the alteration of your emotions during use of the glitter jar - just distraction.
Making a glitter jar is simple. You will need:
- 1 jar (with a lid of course!)
- 1/10 vegetable oil
- 9/10 water
- glitter - lots of!
- food colouring
- anything else shiny
Add the water and vegetable oil together. Add a few drops of food colouring, all of the glitter and anything else shiny. Put the lid on (tight!) and shake it.
When you want to cut / binge / scream / cry, shake the glitter jar and watch until the glitter is settled. It’ll calm you and hopefully the emotion will pass.
Reblogging for my followers. I made one of these and it is honestly so calming to just watch it.
this is so amazing(via
My first tattoo to cover my deepest scar that’s on my wrist. I think it turned out well.
i love her
This is an excellent metaphor for what most people go through. Though I think the art was intended to be an inspirational, “go get your dreams” type image, i think its a lot more sad and true than that. The unicorn is a mthical beast that doesn’t look anything like a rhino, except that they most have a horn. There is nothing that a rhino can do to become a unicorn, short of destorying its mind and completely altering its body.
This isn’t a stretch for what most people go through when they have body image issues. They look in the magazines and she glorious beautiful people, people so beautiful they don’t actually exist. And some try to work to be exactly like those people. But maybe they just weren’t meant to be shaped like that.
A rhino can still be a beautiful rhino, it does not have to be a unicorn.
body positivity is a really great thing!!! but please remember that being thin is not a guarantee of self-confidence, or an excuse to insult someone.
you forgot “eat a cheeseburger” and “bones are for dogs”
chill out supernatural fandom, it’s not like the sky is falling
“Loneliness does not come from having no people around you, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to you.” — Carl Jung (via fscottfitzgerald)
I have a panic disorder. While having an attack one day, I called my boyfirend because I was scared. He hung up the phone as soon as I said that and was over in no time to comfort me.
He doesn’t have a car.
He lives 10 miles away.
This is the perfect picture to show anyone that’s afraid of recovery because of weight gain. Honestly, look at Demi.
She gained weight and recovered, so what?
She’s glowing, she looks feminine, she looks 1000x more confident and she just looks more… alive.
Recovery is worth it.
She looks alive.
