Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.

Anonymous asked: how do you handle self hatred when it surfaces? i’m so tired of being held hostage by my own mind. how do you dispel those ‘i want to bleed’/’i’m not worth anything’ feelings?

I talk about it out loud to my friends/partner or post about it online. It makes me accountable for feeling this way, in a way. And it also makes me consider how the people who love me feel about it, and that that is also how I should feel about it ? Mostly I just keep reminding myself that those thoughts aren’t valid, they come from an unhealthy, toxic place, and they are toxic and contagious thoughts, and I constantly remind myself that it’s not my fault. I force myself to be self-aware, and try desperately not to allow myself to fall inward and detach myself from the rest of the world, because that’s when things get really dangerous. It’s hard for me to break my skin anymore, when I see the blade on my skin it’s almost jolting, because I care for my body so much, and it is a safe place for me, and I don’t want to hurt it, it’s my mind that is fucked, it’s my mind I want to hurt, and somehow taking it out on my body is no longer satisfying for m.e. My body has done nothing wrong, it does not deserve to be punished. 

As far as the worthless feels, i continuously remind myself that the only reason I feel worthless is because we were raised to think that production = worth, so I feel like when I’m not productive, I am worthless, and when i’m stuck in a depressive slump, i am v unmotivated and far from productive, so it’s an endless cycle of guilt/bad feels. 

I also smoke weed about it. It doesn’t necessarily make me feel 100% better, but it does make me be a lot more gentle with myself.

When I find myself stuck in a rut, i try really hard to reach out to other people and either offer them help or ask for it, sometimes helping other people, ultimately helps me, because it’s hard for me to put myself first, but very easy for me to care for others. 

We deserve that same care you know? 

I think it’s always important to think about where the self hatred is stemming from. Look within yourself and figure it out - because repression is nothin but a realllly bad day waiting to happen.

I read this book once on finding your higher self, and self care etc. and it basically said that all things/thoughts that do not come from love, do not exist. Love creates everything. Love is all. Then it offered an assignment and said to write down every bad/negative/self destructive thought you had and then when you are done reread them and write at the bottom “Love did not create these thoughts. Therefore they do not exist” and to keep telling yourself that. **important to note here that we are saying they do not exist within ourselves not necessarily in the physical world, but in our world/minds, thoughts that are not from love, do not need to exist** 

i’m really off today so if these thoughts don’t seem to match up or make sense i’m sorry, but I really hope this helped. <3
