    Peak Narcissism

    I love you Teal! Thank you for being authentic. Thank you for cultivating authenticity and true connection. And I love and thank everyone else, too. Thank you all for being committed to healing and connection. Respect.

    The Dark Crystal

    She's with Alan Steinfeld and Hanson Tse, if anyone wants to know. She has a great interview on YouTube with Alan Steinfeld from a while back.
  3. I can't tell you how much that conversation she had with the beautiful blonde woman who didn't feel safe around people helped me. It helped me understand myself and the women around me. Obviously beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I am quite sure Teal understands that. But for the purpose of addressing a specific issue with this woman, Teal needed to approach it from a specific level. Of social situations, body language...the quick judgments we make about one another. On a broader level, everyone is both ugly and beautiful. But to deny that these dynamics are happening on the surface level is the opposite of healing a real problem that I experience and see in others often. This conversation wasn't about Teal, or anyone you might yourself judge as "ugly" This was about this woman and her healing process. And it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows. But it seriously helped me and it was beautiful to see this woman understand herself in a new way. We all have different aspects. One aspect of me judges people on their appearance. Another aspect of me sees everyone as precious and beautiful. Which aspect needs my presence and understanding more?
  4. I just realized I went through my own pain wall during my Vipassana meditation retreat! When she said visually they look like pins and needles and razors. On day 5 it was all I could see when I closed my eyes. It was too much for me at first. It took days to get through it, and a lot of convincing myself that I wasn't abusing myself senselessly. A lot of love. I love of presence and determination. I did that for myself. That's a nice thought.
  5. I'm 27. This was sobering. Sobering to all the romantic ideas I spin with. This hit home. This hit my sisters' homes and my mother's home. This struck the question I often ask myself, do I even want to have a child? I don't want to be full of resentment and guilt. I want to heal myself. I want to like men. I want to be friends with them. My body is so full of trauma and she still wants to sacrifice herself and become pregnant. She wants to create and love and be loved. How do I tell her no?
  6. This was a great video and that woman's learning process doesn't have to be beautiful to everyone. So true about women not wanting to always have to lead the relationship. It's been a common theme in my life and in the women close to me. Also being clear about what you need. We need men to also take initiative in term of our relationship with them. When he can do that, it's wonderful. I also find such pleasure in the relationships I have with women who are also taking initiative in terms of our friendship. It's like agh, maybe we should just be in a romantic relationship! Which, like...let's do it...

    Self Help

    I can not tell you how much this is exactly how I felt today. I said to my sister, I don't want to have to do it for myself!! I said this, talking about my own struggles with helping myself and feeling utterly alone. And I must have thought about how unsafe I was like 6 times. At the end of this rough day...it is a huge comfort to hear that I have been experiencing something along with the collective, to hear someone else say they were dealing with similar ideas.
  8. I identify with this woman in multiple ways. I have felt lost and unaware of who I was because I was playing roles for so long. I have believed that I wouldn't be liked or loved if I showed people who I really was. A "not okay-ness" about my true self. It's such a painful way to live and I'm learning that a lot of people live that way. So, I loved seeing this process and I'm grateful for such brave vulnerability. It's admirable.

    The Python

    I loved this whole thing. I think it is a gift. I'm interested about Ale's thoughts on the aspect of you that was him in your dream, if he is really like that in his life and if he agrees that he is similar to your representation of him. I love that this theme of the two of you was in the dream...that this was about you and your Python, but you initially encountered it with him, before having to go off on your own to finish it.
