(Self-care is not Selfish. You cannot serve from an empty vessel)

The most important thing I try and emphasize when it comes to self-care and relationships, poly, mono, open etc, is that:
 You are in fact, your own primary partner. 
Take care of yourself, be your own gardener. 
Make yourself your utmost priority.
Be compassionate for yourself and empathize with everyone else. Everything else comes second.

Three years ago I believed whites and blacks were equal in the United States. I believed that slavery was abolished and racism went both ways. I disagreed with affirmative action and I thought black people who didn’t make it out didn’t want to make it out.

I was so very wrong.

Today my heart is…

For those who don’t know, Jada is a 16 year old girl who was invited to a party by some of her friends. It was hosted by a friend of the friend. When she got there, she drank some punch (now believed to be drugged), and after that drink, she did not remember anything afterwards. It was not until her rape went VIRAL that she realized what they did to her. Photos of her unconscious body and a video of the boys laughing and joking about her looking “deader than Trayvon Martin”. And her attacker(s) do not feel they are at fault. In fact, they went to Twitter to further attack and violate her and she was bullied on social networking for it. Then random individuals of the internet furthered the bullying by recreating the pose of her unconscious body and taking their own photos to post. Usually the names of victims are hidden from the public, but she decided against it since people have already seen her and her body and she is pushing towards stopping rape culture. She was raped, then exposed, humiliated, and bullied on the internet. #IAMJADA

We rarely say no to men. Flat out, No, not interested. Saying No just doesn’t feel very safe, which is why I, and many other women/ female-bodied people have avoided it.

It’s always,

"Oh, I’m so flattered, but I’m not really interested in dating right now."

"Oh, I’m currently seeing someone,…

I ALWAYS say this. Working out does not always mean she or he hates their current body, or is bowing down to societal beauty standards by trying to lose or trying to gain. I love my body now. I loved my body last year. I’ll love my body five years from now. I think of it as putting brand new rims on a nice car. The car was already nice, it’s just a lovely improvement. Fine tuning. 😜 And anyone else out there, those who don’t like their current body situation, I say, always go for what you want, while still loving and accepting what you currently have. Strive for that finish, but you don’t have to be unhappy about where you’re starting. Because bodies are not static. They are not permanent. They transform. They change. They are flexible. They grow, shrink, and age. You can do anything with hard work, patience, and LOVE. From beginning to end. #rp via @theultimatefitspo #fitness #femalefitness #selflove #love #body #life #improve

When sex becomes a production or performance that is when it loses its value. Be mutual. Be loud. Be clumsy. Make noises, be quiet, and make a mess. Bite, scratch, push, pull, hold, thrust. Remove pressure from the moment. Love the moment. Embrace it. Enjoy your body; enjoy your partners’ body. Produce sweat, be natural, entice your senses, give into pleasure. Bump heads, miss when you kiss, laugh when it happens. Speak words, speak with your body, speak to their soul. Touch their skin, kiss their goose bumps, and play with their hair. Scream, beg, whimper, sigh, let your toes curl, lose yourself. Chase your breath; keep the lights on, watch their eyes when they explode. Forget worrying about extra skin, sizes of parts and things that are meaningless. Save the expectations, take each second as it comes. Smear your make up, mess up your hair, rid your masculinity, and lose your ego. Detonate together, collapse together, and melt into each other.
