Dear eleven-year old self,
You are never going to be “not sick”. You are never going to be able to walk into a room and not feel like everyone is staring at you and the room is shrinking. Your skin is never going to stop feeling like it’s on fire every time someone puts their hands on you. you…

Your body is full of static and pain and juice and joy and starlight

yournotetoself:

Dear Aleph,

I know you feel like a ghost trying to squeeze into a human costume. You haven’t heard of people like you, so you think you must not be a person.

Dear SHWM,

Hi! We’re so glad you’re here!

We hope you all are enjoying the end of summer/beginning of autumn. We are excited for our second fall (of many to come!) with the SHWM community!

Many people are familiar with the song “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus. We are particularly fond of this cover by London Grammar. We hope you like it, too!

For TAC Staff, andrewgibby is pretty easily our favorite contemporary poet. Last year, they released their 6th album, “Truce”. We also speak about how Andrea views the creative process behind their work.

Also on this episode, Kelsey Gibb! Kelsey and Andrea co-founded stayherewithus (stayherewithme.com/), which serves as an online safe space where community members can share stories, appreciate one another’s art, and speak openly about some of the toughest issues facing young adults today. 

Enjoy the show -MW.

dear little andrea,
i know right now they’re telling you jesus walked on water. i want you to know that no matter what you grow up to believe you will never try to wrestle a miracle away from anyone’s reason to live, and you will full heartedly believe the air that you breathe is a miracle, and you won’t settle for poking holes in the lid, even when you want to die, you’ll suddenly notice you’re wearing a seatbelt on your way to the cliff, and you’ll start laughing just in time.

Finally started writing a letter to my younger self for the “Note to Self” project. Check it out: http://yournotetoself.tumblr.com/

Warrior, the shatter will let you turn your scars in to paintings and fill the empty between your bones with music

It’s Monday! That means a new and amazing Note To Self is up!

yournotetoself:

Dear Fourteen Year Old Me,

You don’t realize this now, but you are a Warrior. Surviving the violent thunderstorms that raged inside your childhood home, taming the swarm of bees forced down your throat, and sewing yourself back together after the thieves broke into your body… Resilience seeps out of your pores.
