A Letter To The Person Who Didn’t Give Me The Love That I Deserve

whatevetziesays:

Everything about this article is spot on and exactly of how I felt two years ago and though part of me is sad to have let him go I am happy at the same time. He was never going to take things seriously, he damaged me emotionally, and I was not going to wait forever. I stood up made things clear it was either everything or nothing at all. He made it very easily for me to walk away with my head held high I was not going to let love bring me down that way.

I will not fall for you all at once. No, I will fall for you gradually—falling for the little things. Like the way you laugh mid kiss sometimes, and look at me like you can’t believe what is happening. Or the way you reach over in your still sleep-fogged state and pull me close to you as if you cannot keep me close enough. Or simply the way you look at me when we laugh; laughing with you is my favorite. It’s like looking directly into your core and seeing how truly vulnerable you can be; laughing with me yet hoping I won’t break your heart. But what you don’t know is that I could never break your heart, because it is the most beautiful thing about you.

I remember the day you asked me my top pet peeves before listing yours. You said these were your only deal…

AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION MAKES IT OFFICIAL: ‘SELFIE’ A MENTAL DISORDER

Mona Lisa selfie

About a couple of months ago there was a fake article published online which many people took to heart. The article basically claimed that The American Psychiatric Association (APA) had officially confirmed that taking ‘selfies’ was a mental disorder during its annual board of directors meeting in Chicago. The disorder was named “selfitis” and was defined as the obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of one’s self  and post them on social media as a way to make up for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy. Though there was no cure there was a temporary treatment available through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which is covered under Obamacare. Yup you read that right.

The three levels of selfitis according to this article were:

  • Borderline selfitis : taking photos of one’s self at least 3 times a day but not posting them on social media
  • Acute selfitis: taking photos of one’s self at least 3times a day and posting each of the photos on social media
  • Chronic selfitis: Uncontrollable urge to take photos of one’s self  round the clock and posting the photos on social media more than 6 times a day.

Now my question for you is will “Selfitis” be a future disorder?

beautifull💞

Though this article may have been claimed as fake with the way our generations are so active and dependent on social media, pop culture idols, and trends could we or are we already heading in that direction.  If you think about it we have all been brainwashed at certain point  and played a huge part into what we know as selfies. We have to document a night out, what you ate, what’ youre doing, what you are planning to do its a constant natural thing to do now from the time you wake up to the time that you go to sleep. We are most active on social platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, and etc. It’s not that is a bad thing to do but how far can the selfie obsession go? For God sakes we already  have to have our selfie sticks in hand.

I am a constant Instagram uploader myself  and its addicting. I don’t post photos of myself all of the time sometimes I upload quotes, music, celebrities, and other things but it is an addictive almost consuming. So guilty as charged haha but at the same time its like subsconcious thing though I do it for the fun of it all. As I let my mind sink in these questions I started to observe the social behaviors and body language of how the people around me as well as on my social media platforms acted. How many times did they took selfies each day? How many did they upload that day? How many selfies did they took before they actually chose one to their preference to upload? Why did they choose not keep the other selfies before that? How did it affect them emotionally? Were they mad at how they looked, did they find it pretty, ugly, double chin, lighting? What?

We are part of the problem. 😕The truth is after all the observation I gathered my conclusion is  that is not a mental disorder per say. Its more of a society mental disorder. The way society are trying to follow trends and make trends happen its ridiculous its like if you don’t follow everyone’s step into what is hot then you are an outsider. Peer pressuring people into join these platforms where you have to prove yourself to others. (Ex.hey i can be better than you or i can do the same as you by posting things from your daily life). You may agree to disagree and I completely understand that but it really opened my eyes  to the fact that we focus so much on the selfish selfies we take wether we do it because we say its for ourselves but in reality we are  trying to somehow seek the praising (approval) from others when honestly don’t have to. It has become a cultural phenomenon  as human we desire—to feel noticed, appreciated and recognized. It all comes down to individual’s self esteem and are you going to keep taking selfies to that new level where it will take over of who you are as a person. Will we move forward as individuals to live life to the fullest without having to feel the need to be approved for all the time. Be confident and focus on having fun and trust that you are worth more than a thousand selfies and other’s like, comments, follows or etc.

So are we Selfie Mental Disorder or True “Selfies”?

Stay happy, positive vibes, and love much. #loveyour(self)first

Music Festivals Ban Selfie Sticks

festival

Anyone who has been to a music festival knows maintaining personal space is not an option. Trust me I can tell you from personal experiences where I have gotten shoved, walked on almost, and thrown sideways thanks to the people fighting next to me. Like seriously can’t we just enjoy the damn music?

Well speaking of getting your personal space invaded by idiots, this summer’s most highly anticipated music festivals are taking a stand against selfie sticks. Both Coachella and Lollapalooza are banning selfie sticks and other GoPro attachments. Australia’s Soundwave Festival and several UK music venues including the O2 Arena, SSE Wembley Arena and O2 Academy Brixton have also joined in agaisn’t selfie sticks.

Too bad they won’t do the same at theme parks here in Orlando. Seriously every five steps there is someone with a selfie stick stopping in the middle of your pathway taking a group selfie….wait for it… vacation groups of 30 or more. Yup! So if you are planning on going to any of these huge music festivals make sure to read what you are allowed in and time to take your old school camera and selfies. Although you can choose to actually pay attention for your money’s worth to every performance that hits the stage instead of taking photos of your flower crown and Kylie Jenner’s lips.

Listen I love selfie sticks when I am with a group of friends hanging out but a couple of minutes not as a whole day thing. Now I love the idea of having a selfie stick or a GoPro for concerts and festivals if you are really short like me and you can’t see crap. But at the same time I understand how annoyed I get when I have someone in front or behind me with a selfie stick in small amount of personal space. I feel invaded and with the amount of heat we get here in Orlando on the summer time I would hate to be in a music festival with sweaty people touching my skin as they take a selfie. Imagine trying to enjoy a performance by Hozier or Fall Out Boy and have someone in front of you with a selfie stick in the middle of your favorite performances not letting you enjoy watching your singers or bands. I would and will throw a fit with how expensive these tickets are, are you kidding?  And the reasoning for this action :selfie sticks obscured the view for other people in the crowd, noting the increased amount of sticks in the crowd in music festivals. Like some people like to call them selfish sticks.  Because they make you take up a lot more space in a crowded place than you should invading other people’s personal space.

What are your thoughts?

London Grammar

[LISTEN TO THIS] London Grammar

16/03/3015

London Grammar is a British band leaded by vocals from Hannah Reid, keyboard Dot Major and guitarist Dan Rothman. The band’s sound comes off as secretiveness, quietly dramatic, and almost haunting very easily compared to Florence and The Machine.  Hannah’s strong vocals are full of power yet gentle enough to make you feel the power behind each word of their lyrics.  Their tracks are as song-like as they are showcases for gentle digital rhythms. Their songs are based on the raw emotions of life experiences collaborated by all three band members. Their album “If You Wait” was released September 10, 2013 in the .U.S.A. and it debuted at number two the UK Albums Chart with first-week sales of 33,130 copies. Meanwhile in 2015 it peaked at 91 in the .U.S. Billboard.
