My name is Oliver, this is a blog with quite a few photos that I've taken thrown in for good measure. I am the acting editor for photography collective Voena. Don't confuse my insanity for a viewpoint of who I work for. These views are mine, and mine alone.
I haven’t felt this bad in ages. I did something I shouldn’t have. And I’ve let myself get crushed by how someone else sees me.
Quick reminder: You aren’t your emotions
They are just reactions to how your life is going. They are a sign you need to not do what you are doing, or change something, or that you need a break, or that the people in your life aren’t good for you, or that you need to leave something alone, or get off the internet. Etc etc.
They don’t justify how you should treat yourself
If there’s something that is eating you up, or someone who is being a complete piece of shit continuously, or you’re doing something destructive. Emotions that hurt are telling you one thing: Walk Away.
They are not asking you to beat yourself up, they are just saying to move on. Fuck whatever it is, let it go, it ain’t worth it, or they’re not worth it.
They’re only hurting so that they can make room for other emotions.
