Hello lovely humans! My name is Ariana, but you can call me Ari. I personally cannot define myself in a paragraph, nor through words in general, it's never enough nor to the full extent of my core being, but I'll try. My blog is my personal sanctuary, I always strive to post anything that's stimulating to the mind of many, but there will be times that it won't be, we all have those days. I understand, I won't judge, and I care.. Lean on me. I'm a 22 year old gal, I'm an Aries♈. I believe in Sci-Fi/Fantasy, I bury my head in books, as I live not one life but many. I'm a medieval princess warrior, at heart. I'm very spiritually awakened from within, as I protect and aim to free minds every day. Stay humble, stay kind, there's no need for anymore negativity than we already have in this realm, be part of the difference. We are the creators, your thoughts create what you see around you; think positive. You can live in this illusion, you can choose to believe~
When everything is taken from one, the only option left is-- surviving.
“If you are a woman. If you are a Person of Colour. If you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, if you’re a person of size, if you’re a person of intelligence, if you’re a person of integrity, then you are considered a minority in this world. And it’s gonna be really hard to find messages of self-love, and support anywhere, especially women’s and gay men’s culture. It’s all about how you have to look a certain way or else you’re worthless. You know when you look in the mirror, and you think, ‘Ugh, I’m so fat, I’m so old, I’m so ugly’, don’t you know that’s not your authentic self, but that is billions upon billions of dollars of advertising, magazines, movies, billboards, all geared to make you feel shitty about yourself so that you will take your hard-earned money and spend it on some turnaround cream that doesn’t turnaround shit.
When you don’t have self-esteem, you will hesitate before you do anything in your life. You will hesitate to go for the job you really wanna go for. You will hesitate to ask for a raise. You will hesitate to report a rape. You will hesitate to defend yourself when you are discriminated against because of your race, your sexuality, your size, your gender. You will hesitate to vote. You will hesitate to dream.
For us to have self-esteem is truly an act of revolution. And our revolution is long-overdue.”
