The internet is often praised for speed, instant communication.
We use things people said online to crucify them. We talk of futures we fear or delight in, but it is all in the past.
The internet is far from instant. People change every moment. We have to stop condemning each other.
I'm not against debate, but remember we're all suffering and the below each side of an argument is someone suffering.
Please Boost! Does anybody have a temporary room (closet, bit of floor, rafter to hang from) available in or near Pittsburgh, PA where two disabled queers can job hunt? Can keep house, cook, and pay up to $300. Extra big special bonus if you like babies, but otherwise we have care arranged with my family until we get our own place.

A bit more on that pic @neauoire shared--
I really loved that @voidspace's guided meditations put a twist on Ekhart Tolle's idea of being present. From the meditation I was asked to examine what continuity is in my life. If the presence is all I have since thoughts and feelings are fleeting, than perhaps I am the Now?
Tolle wants us to focus on now, but @voidspace asked me to trust and love the now because it is me. 🙏 💜
I’m offering 2 online Guided Meditation sessions again on Wednesday at 13.00 BST and 19.00 BST respectively.
The sessions last between 30 - 40 minutes.
The class costs £4. (DM me if that’s a problem for you, and we can sort something out.)
I’ve been facilitating this type of meditation for some years, and you can read more about it here:
DM or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
It's time to flood the fediverse with #RealHumanBodies to counter the marketing culture that the patriarchy and capitalism have used to make us all feel bad about ourselves.
Let me get it started with a tasteful, nude selfie.

"When I let myself be vulnerable, when I am authentically me, it is an alienating experience. One must be courageous to stay in that space out in a world that is black and white. In the larger society around us, we are right or wrong. There are very few places where emotions are freely accepted."

Nightmare - mental health
My dream was fear. Unable to fit in or belong, being frowned on by authority figures and completely alone.
It was overwhelming, these emotions of sadness and fear. Full on shame hammering me in the stomach and chest. It woke me up and I found a guided meditation to sit with and process the emotions. I did my best, but I am still feeling uncomfortable. I just want to belong. 😥

I'll be even more grateful if you take advantage of this LAST DAY for a $20 tee from my store. (use code: howl)
