i want there to be an angel that descends from the heavens only when someone is being stupid
and the angel just gently places their hand over the person’s mouth
and whispers in a voice filled with heavenly beauty and love
LOOK IT UP

Archaeologists have produced an underground map of 17 hidden monuments buried beneath Stonehenge. These new discoveries, including a building that pre-dates Stonehenge, suggest the landmark did not stand alone in the past. Source
I have so much respect for people that can write songs. Like, how did you know that melody with those lyrics and that guitar riff would be so catchy? Song writers are so smart. Serious respect for song writers.

There were a bunch of religious protests going on outside the convention, and I just so happened to be walking by as Godoka.

So apparently there exists a metalcore cover of Let It Go… I am so confused.
Shame is the deeply held belief that, at core, there is something wrong with me. So, no matter what I do, or how hard I try, I’ll never measure up and be good enough. Thus, I expect other people to reject me in the end, and deep down inside I reject myself.
If I have a shame based identity, I am likely to battle with the following feelings:
- Feeling like a fraud
- Feeling like I have to cover up all the time
- Fear of being exposed for who and what I truly am
- Feeling powerless
- Feeling as if I don’t have, or deserve, a voice
- Wishing I could just disappear
- Feeling vulnerable
- Feeling very needy – and perhaps too needy, compared to other people
- Feeling like I always disappoint myself and others.
The “shame bound” person is constantly struggling against these persistent and negative feelings. They are triggered easily, and by innocuous triggers, such as being overlooked or contradicted by a friend. This can then result in a powerful “shame attack” that is so intense that we’re completely paralysed, and overwhelmed, by a sense of worthlessness. These feelings can persist for days, for weeks or even months.
Self-loathing, also known as “autophobia” or self-hatred”, is a thought pattern where individuals believe they are inferior, bad, worthless, unlovable, or incompetent. It is associated with low self-esteem and low self worth. Other symptoms of self-loathing include chemical dependency, alcohol & drug abuse, self-harm, self-destructive promiscuity, fits of rage and dissociation.
Self-loathing is one of the central characteristics of people who suffer from Avoidant Personality Disorder. It is also common in those diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Self-loathing is common among people who grew up in an unsupportive family environment where there was child abuse, neglect, emotional trauma or chronic criticism.
It can be something that appears from time to time, or it may be suddenly triggered by disappointments, struggles, painful memories or anxiety about the future. These triggers can create an overwhelming flood of feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness and powerlessness - which can lead to self-destructive behaviors, emotional withdrawal or aggressive behaviors.
Examples of statements indicating self-loathing include:
- “Nobody loves me”
- “Things will never get any better.”
- “I’m useless. I always screw everything up.”
- “He/she could never really love the real me.”
