You also have these baby teenage mutant ninja turtles to protect you.
This is actually such a good tactic for people with serious anxiety problems. Thank you. Really. Omg.
Also immunity cat protects your blog from “if you don’t reblog I’m judging you” posts
Ah, thank you so much for this. ; u;
It might fall into some of the same magical thinking trappings as those nasty posts, but it does it in a well-meaning way.
I came across a reblog of “if you don’t reblog this in the next ten seconds you will fail your finals!” and it kept sneaking into my head the last couple of days, since I’ve felt unwell and already vulnerable/not confident about my studies. I knew it was irrational but I was still scared that I didn’t reblog it, but I didn’t reblog it because I didn’t want others with the same vulnerabilities feeling the same thing!
So Immunity Cat and Little Ninja Turtles are just what this OCD-riddled brain needed to warm the cockles of it’s skittish heart.
I remember how much her realization that she was “never going to be good enough for him” resonated with me when I first watched this movie. She decided to push herself, not to be with him, but to prove him the fuck wrong.
Strong female role models who can still wear pink and love fashion. Yes yes yes.
I FUCKING LOVE THIS MOVIE OH MY GODDDDDDDDDD
CAN WE JUST STOP FOR A SEC THO?
HE’S INSULTING HER FOR BEING DUMB
SHE GOT INTO THAT SCHOOL ON HER OWN.
WARNER NEEDED HIS DADDY TO CALL THEM TO BE ABLE TO GET IN.
I LOVE THIS MOVIE NO ONE EVEN UNDERSTANDS.
I’m fairly positive that this movie taught me that it’s okay to be very feminine and love pink and be super fucking smart and take zero shit from dumbass boys.
I also liked how she showed up in her bunny outfit, expecting a costume party, and when she discovered that it wasn’t, she just shrugged and stayed for the party anyway. No “boo-hoo I’m so embarrassed I must run and hide my shame”, she’s got confidence in spades and doesn’t let it throw her off her game, aside from being mildly upset that she was lied to.
Advice he’d give a 12-year-old version of himself: "It might sound oversimplified, but I’d say, ‘Shhh.’ It’s so funny how noisy my brain is - it’s what it does, it makes thoughts. And the problem is, I think in most of our lives the root of suffering is listening to that brain noise and actually identifying with it as if it’s who you are. That’s just the noise your brain makes. And more often than not, it probably doesn’t have much to say that’s going to help you. I’ve felt my best are the moments that I’ve been able to pull that plug and say, ‘Chris … shhh … shhh.’ And it’s not quitting, it’s not giving up, it’s not washing your hands of the thought, it’s rising above it. All the time I’ve spent suffering as a result of brain noise, hours of my life wasted. So that’s what I’d say: ‘Shhh.’"
