"In the end, Hollywood forced Dorothy Dandridge to embody one of the stereotypes she so loathed: the tragic mulatto, a woman accepted in some ways by both the black and white communities but rejected in other, crucial, heartbreaking ways. The white community loved her “white” beauty and the specter of her sexuality, but refused to allow her to actually act on that sexuality."~ Anne Helen Petersen

Sleepy//anxious about every single thing. (Going back to school, going back to 50+ hour weeks, Jenna moving home, living alone, moving when I literally don’t have time, the guilt of how much mom my has/will have to financially support me, doctor visits/testing, my obsession with cleaning that I don’t always have time for.)

Trying to change my “I can’t” mindset to “I can.”
Any tips? Or any good reads on the topic/mental wellness?

Things to remember when you want to say “no,” assert yourself, and ask for what you want

thelesbianborderline:

  1. If I say “no” to someone and they get angry, this does not mean I should have said “yes.”
  2. Saying “no” does not make me selfish.
  3. Although I want to please the people I care about, I do not have to please them all the time.
  4. It is okay to want or need something from someone else. 
  5. My wants and needs are just as important as those of anyone else.
  6. I have the right to assert myself, even if I may inconvenience others.
