Am I ready for this? โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•

Yesterday I took over the @polyesterzine stories and asked people how they were feeling so I could draw a few of their replies. Here are the drawing of how we felt yesterday. Thanks to everyone who was a part of this. ๐Ÿ’–

The other day I asked you which two contradictory feelings you feel at the same time. I got thousands of responses and picked out a few that came up a lot. I think weโ€™re often taught that to feel strongly about something you have to feel one clear emotion at a time, but maybe feeling mixed feelings is the most honest way to feel. Thank you for contributing to these drawings. Iโ€™m still thinking about all of your other responses - more drawings soon. ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚ #ambivalent

Thinking about the things I categorize as personal failures and flaws. Thinking about where my criteria for categorization comes from. Trying to change my process of categorization. Both succeeding and failing at it. ๐Ÿ’›

NEW @rebelliouslytiny PODCAST - Episode 17: Max is out now! You can listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher or at the link in bio! ๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€
*Content Warning: This week we discuss eating disorders, and while we tried our best to approach this topic as responsibly and thoughtfully as we can, it is still a potentially triggering episode.

Hereโ€™s the question that inspired this weekโ€™s episode (the message has been slightly altered to preserve anonymity):
I have been โ€œmildlyโ€ anorexic for three years and โ€œmildlyโ€ bulimic for a year, but I am now in the process of recovery. โ€œMildlyโ€ was part of the diagnosis, but I am not sure I agree with this term. I ate only enough to subsist on and my mind was consumed by food but I was still able to continue a relatively productive life. Not fitting into the image of the extreme anorexic meant that I did not think that my situation was severe enough to seek treatment. Not recognizing ambiguity (ambivalence!) failed me.

Itโ€™s not always realistic to expect ourselves to โ€œloveโ€ our bodies all the time. And thatโ€™s okay. Instead of pressuring ourselves to โ€œloveโ€ our bodies, we can learn to respect our bodies, and give thanks for all they do. Unfortunately, we live in a world that is constantly telling us that our bodies are something to be fixed and โ€œworked on.โ€ This week, we discuss our complicated relationships with our bodies, and how we can try to show more care for ourselves and each other.
