Seriously reblog that self care post
Okay but NO ONE gets to be the sole decider on what is/is not self care
Self care means lots of different things to lots of different people
For some people self care is waking up at 5 am to watch the sun rise and doing yoga and making super healthy food and going out often
For me self care is not leaving the house and eating two baked potatoes and drinking tea while playing video games and not having to talk to people
Both are completely valid forms of self care
Self care is the act of taking care of YOURSELF. Since people are so completely different, it’s unlikely that everyone’s way of taking care of themselves is going to be the same as yours. That does not mean you get to invalidate or belittle their form of self care
autism does not need to be cured, autistic people do not need to be fixed, society needs to be changed, I will always stand by this
I know that last post is passive aggressive and Bad but honestly. I don’t even. Care at this point I have been upfront and direct about this before despite how uncomfortable and scared it makes me (while already being uncomfortable and scared and panicked bc of what she’s doing) and that doesn’t ever work so what the fuck do I have to lose at this point
*tries to do self care day*
*roommate comes home*
*is now on edge bc roommate is here and also she makes sudden loud noises despite me having to tell her EVERYDAY I can’t handle that EVER*
So much for self care!
"Why isn’t this a real thing?"
OMG BY THE WAY did I tell u all that Tom Osborne came into RM on Thursday and I like. I didn’t recongize him omg my manager (who is from Seattle btw) was FREAKING OUT and I couldnt hear what he was whisper-asking me so I was just ???? And then after he left my manager turned to me and was fangirling bc it was Tom Osborne
And for those of u who don’t know he’s like a super super super SUPER big big HUGE deal to Nebraska football and to the huskers football team and UNL and Lincoln and probably even the state as a whole
I’m vaguely embarrassed just bc I’ve been here for over two years now I feel like I should know who he is

Most people won’t admit it, or don’t even realize it, but
caring for people takes energy out of you.
Investing your time and attention making sure somebody knows
that you love them and that you want to ensure their well-being can drain you:
- even physically.
Love people, but take care of yourself.
Don’t burn yourself out.
