Healing is letting your inner child tell their story
Healing is letting your inner child tell their story. I haven’t let my inner child tell her story as I didn’t know if I could trust her. I felt ashamed for her. My experiences and emotions living with an ED were dismissed and invalidated by the people closest to me to the point I didn’t trust my own reality anymore. I am not writing this to blame anyone, as we are all doing the best we can with the understanding and knowledge we have. However, it made me feel ashamed for what I was going through. Unable to show up in vulnerability and asking for help. For many years, I stayed quiet, hiding this part of myself and slowly losing my voice. To me letting my inner child tell her story means showing her compassion and validation for what she has been through. It means letting her use her voice – maybe for the first time ever.
Why Safety is Terrifying
People believe safety is comfortable, but I believe safety is terrifying. Safety is an idea that society has created to lie to us, to tell us that we are protected, when in reality, we are all exposed constantly to dangers that some may not even realize they are exposed to. When you walk outside, what’s to keep someone from running you over with their car? I’d be lying if I said I never considered, either for a brief moment or a lengthier time as my car rolled forward toward the person walking across the street naively, running that person over with my car just to see what would happen. When you eat dinner, what is to stop another from grabbing a knife and hacking away at you? How violent, you think, but have you never had even the slightest momentary thought where you pictured hurting someone?Zane AquamanPublished 6 days ago in Psyche
The Effects of Cynicism in the Modern World
Cynicism, the pervasive attitude in modern society, has garnered much attention for its potential to harm individuals and society as a whole. Cynics often adopt a skeptical disposition towards institutions such as government, corporations, and media, and they may harbor doubts about the motivations of others. This outlook may result in a breakdown of communication and cooperation, thereby making it more difficult to solve complex problems that require collective action. Furthermore, cynicism can cause individuals to feel disconnected from society and the people around them, leading to isolation and disengagement. This article delves into the reasons why cynicism is lethal in modern society, exploring its various negative impacts.Aadyot KarnaPublished 8 days ago in Psyche

Feeling of Being Watched While Taking Shower
At times I get quite intrigued by the multitude of examples where our minds are playing tricks on us. I am not even talking about that schizoid stuff, like hallucinations or hearing voices, but something much less pathological, if at all -- like having that creepy feeling of being watched while taking shower.Vladimir KarasPublished 13 days ago in Psyche
Existential Honesty (but dumb it down please)
Late Night Shower Thoughts The thing I really want to talk about is body, mind, and soul. That is to say, our internal world, our external world, and whatever the fuck a soul is. Is it okay to curse? I hope it is. I think this piece is for any adult who's been going through a rough time for a long time. It's a bit abstract and does include a few mentions of sexual assault, violence, and substance abuse.Calla HoskinsPublished 15 days ago in Psyche

"The thing about the beams that supports this floor, is that they're 97 inches by 714 centimetres; that's the golden ratio, I mean it's nearly the golden ratio, I mean, if you squint, it, I mean… It's interesting because the golden ratio is also a way of finding prime numbers, or, it's all prime numbers, or... Sorry, prime numbers are numbers that can't be divided by themselves; does that make sense? Isn't that interesting? Sorry."Jade SpeaksPublished 16 days ago in Psyche
