    Listen — sometimes courage is as simple as opening your eyes in the morning. Sometimes it’s as easy as making the effort to eat your breakfast without spelling their name in your cereal, or breaking your teeth on their goodbyes. Sometimes courage is the way you fall in love with your sadness, how you let it rock you to sleep, how you feel it and face it and tell yourself every single night that you can overcome it, even if you feel like you can’t.
    No, sometimes courage isn’t a big declaration, a common accomplishment. Sometimes courage is the way you slowly comb them out of your hair; sometimes courage is hearing their voice in public and not turning your head or having your stomach feel like a shaken up can of soda. Sometimes courage is smiling for your younger sister when your heart is breaking, sometimes it's telling her that love exists even on the days you simply don’t believe it does.
    See, sometimes courage isn’t climbing Mount Everest or changing the world. Sometimes your mountain to climb is made up of weekdays and months, made up of pushing yourself forward even when you want to nestle into the past. Sometimes changing the world means changing your world, as gradually as you need to, as gently as you heal, because sometimes courage isn’t made up of war, and bloodshed; sometimes courage isn’t made of combat. Sometimes courage is a quiet fight, a dim softness within you, that flickers even on your darkest days, and reminds you that you are strong, that you are growing — that there is hope.

    humor helps trauma, we just want to
    know that you’re laughing with us. we can
    joke about it because it’s ours to joke about.
    similar to how our bruises are ours to poke at,
    and yours to keep away from

    In 2012, Disney released a line of villain dolls depicting Ursula, the classically full-figured Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid as a designer, couture, size zero. From one rolling midsection and tameless will to another, my sweet Ursula — I cannot imagine the sick flip of your stomach, to see your image dissected, chins shaved, waist cinched, your silhouette robbed of every ounce of delicious curve. To find after two decades of existence that your evil was more worthy of preservation than the iconic body that held you, you — big lady, were the only Disney character who ever looked like me. And while you may not have had the waistline of a princess I'll be godd.amned if you didn't have the swagger of a Queen. The way you sashayed around your lair in full makeup, black flamenco number cut so low in the back that your every twist and shimmy displayed the gorgeous tuck of your rolls... You made back-fat look f.ucking s.exy. You made living in this body a little less like a curse. I wonder how they told you, did they sit you down over tea, delicately frosted cakes lining your chipped porcelain? Explain it as a marketing technique, a vehicle to make you more palatable to a culture that demands perfection? I hope you crushed the f.ucking teapot in the clench of your fist. I hope you grew a thousand feet tall and drowned them in the whirlpool of your rage. I wish I could have watched you suck the voices from their tiny, breakable throats. But I know you wept, I know you licked the icing from each and every cake, I know you broke, like a slow burn. Wasn't it enough that they made you a witch? That you were already beyond the bounds of their franchise royalty? They expected little girls to recoil from the wicked inside your laugh, when instead, they worshiped your honesty. Ursula, I don't want you cut down into bite-sized pieces. You weren't easy to swallow for a reason. I want you larger than life, flaming red lips, black flamenco dress — I want the thick of your tentacles, your conjurer's hands, the jiggle of your ample bust. I want you dressed to the nines on a runway, I want every little girl to see a heroine in a size 24. Ursula, Queen of the Ocean, you were never just a witch to me. You were perfect — every pound, every inch, every swell, perfect. And I pity the poor, unfortunate soul who would dare paint you as anything less.
    —MELISSA MAY-DUNN, DEAR URSULA.

    What
    did I do with all
    the rage he gave me?
    How much did I eat,
    did I swallow?
    What hell did I crawl out
    of?
    What did I do with all his
    flaming tongues?
    I burned.
    I burned.
    I burned.
    I burned through the
    sheets until I was
    clean and new
    and strange,
    and the fire never
    followed me again
    after that.
    After my new name,
    my new face,
    my new glowing body
    next to the grave that
    couldn’t have me.
    — FIRE

    he has crushed your soul and smothered you until your breaths are mere gasps. i am a goddess, you rasp. you will scream your name until he has it carved into memory and echoing in his mind. (he will feel what you have felt) you will clutch his bloodied heart in your fists and eat him alive.
    —— J.M, Goddesses Don't Forgive

    Remember this, for it is as true as true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.~ Sam N. Jr

    GIRL,
    YOU WERE BORN WITH A FIRE INSIDE YOU,
    AND THIS WORLD IS DETERMINED TO STAMP IT OUT.
    YOU WILL SEE IT WHEN YOU STAND UP FOR YOURSELF
    AND YOU ARE TOLD ‘IT ISN’T LADYLIKE TO RAISE YOUR VOICE.’
    YOU WILL HEAR IT WHEN YOU WEAR SOMETHING THAT HUGS YOUR BODY
    AND FEEL THE UNCOMFORTABLE SENSATION OF BEING STRIPPED NAKED
    BY THE EYES OF MEN WHO CALL YOU NAMES YOU ARE STILL TOO YOUNG TO UNDERSTAND.
    YOU WILL KNOW IT WHEN A MAN TRIES TO USE HIS STRENGTH
    TO HAVE HIS WAY WITH YOU THE FIRST TIME,
    AND YOU NEED TO USE YOUR FISTS/TEETH/LEGS TO GET HIM OFF.
    YOU WILL UNDERSTAND IT WHEN YOU SEE
    YOUR MOTHER’S EYES FILLED WITH TERROR
    BECAUSE YOU ARE AN HOUR LATER THAN YOU SAID YOU WILL BE HOME.
    BUT YOU MUST NEVER EVER LET THEM TAKE
    THOSE FLAMES FROM WITHIN YOUR SOUL,
    INSTEAD, YOU MUST BURN BRIGHTER THAN EVER
    BECAUSE YOU ARE A DAUGHTER OF THE SUN,
    AND YOU BELONG ONLY TO YOURSELF, NOT TO THIS WORLD.
    —Nikita Gill, For Girls Filled with Fire

    Woman.
    You are a thousand stories long,
    with the depth of the ocean
    and an entire constellation
    woven into your soul.
    And you must remember this
    before any man
    tries to convince you
    that you are any less.
