Here are some helpful coping techniques for dealing with flashbacks when alone:
One of the easiest ways to cope or manage a flashback is by distraction. Try to remember something challenging such as the lyrics to a particular song, or a favourite poem. This can help interrupt…
Anxiety is a normal reaction that many people experience. An anxiety disorder, however, is diagnosed when various symptoms of anxiety create significant distress and some degree of functional impairment in daily living. A person with an anxiety disorder may find it difficult to function in…
Glitter jars -
I was taught about glitter jars during my time as an inpatient. I learnt the magic of glitter during a self-soothe class as part of an emotional coping skills lesson.
There’s no science, no counting, no acceptance and no forceful methods involved in the alteration of your emotions during use of the glitter jar - just distraction.
Making a glitter jar is simple. You will need:
- 1 jar (with a lid of course!)
- 1/10 vegetable oil
- 9/10 water
- glitter - lots of!
- food colouring
- anything else shiny
Add the water and vegetable oil together. Add a few drops of food colouring, all of the glitter and anything else shiny. Put the lid on (tight!) and shake it.
When you want to cut / binge / scream / cry, shake the glitter jar and watch until the glitter is settled. It’ll calm you and hopefully the emotion will pass.
Reblogging for my followers. I made one of these and it is honestly so calming to just watch it.
Then, this one soldier who just wanted a cool photograph gets murdered by terrorists that are specifically targeting Tony Stark.
This was the moment that made Tony Stark reevaluate his entire life.
This was the moment that made Tony Stark cut the weapons program.
This was the moment that Tony Stark became Iron Man.
This was the moment that never truly left him.
Because it’s after this moment that Tony Stark proceeds to spend the rest of his life making peace-signs in photos, in honor of a young man who was more of a man than Tony could’ve ever dreamt of being; whose death Tony spent months agonizing over and trying to ensure wasn’t in vain.
Can you not what are you doing to my feels why are you always doing this.
can i just marry this moment? harry’s just spoken in parseltounge and everyone is freaking the FUCK out and then we get this shot of Snape’s face, and he’s not scared or horrified or even amazed - and when you rewatch it occurs to you that snape is worried, and he’s just thinking ‘lily… what the FUCK is going on with your son?’ because up until now snape’s always looked out for harry ~~behind the scenes and openly disliked him whenever they’re both on screen but then there’s this and it takes everyone by surprise and snape’s facade drops for like a second because this is the kid he’s promised to protect no matter what, and it’s clear from all this crazy shit that happens to harry that it’s not going to be an easy job. and snape knows from the look on harry’s face that he didn’t know he was a parseltounge and it’s suddenly incredibly clear that harry has no idea who the fuck he actually is - the powers he has, the prophecy, none of it - and snape’s just hit with the fact that harry NEEDS to be protected because he can’t protect himself ALAN RICKMAN I COMMEND YOU I SERIOUSLY DON’T THINK ANYONE ELSE COULD PLAY SNAPE YOU ROCK THOSE GREASY LOCKS BABY
Before filming of the movies began, JK Rowling told Rickman everything about Snape- how he died, that he loved Lily, everything he knew about Harry, and that he had sworn to protect the boy. That way, Rickman could act accordingly throughout the series. Whenever he made an acting choice that seemed out of place for the bitter, mean, Potter-hating professor, the director would ask why he made that choice. Reportedly, Rickman would answer, “I know something that you don’t!” and would walk away.
Alan Rickman: a god amongst wizards.
Fancy knowing something that the director doesn’t. HA.
*strangled cry*NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.But also YES.Because for me this is a pretty important part of the final battle. A lot of folks accused JKR of just wanting to kill people off, and Lupin and Tonks were one of the major “sins” in that category. But for me, one of the major themes of her books is vicious cycle of violence, and another is the ways ordinary people can break that cycle. It’s important that we know that Harry doesn’t stop all the pain, that he’s not the last war orphan. Just like the first War, parents and adults have to make choices, choices with consequences.Like James and Lily, Lupin and Tonks didn’t risk their lives to defeat Voldemort. They gave their lives for each other, because no one person should bear the weight of the sacrifice. They gave their lives for their son, who deserved a better world. They gave their lives for love, not for victory.I think it’s important to see the ways Voldemort’s evil creates these cycles, children taken from their parents and parents taken from their children, again and again. I think it’s an important sobering note in the victory—yes, this time Voldemort is really dead, but there’s another baby this time, another infant who will never know his beautiful, wonderful parents because of Voldemort and his message of hate and violence. Another child who will grow up wondering where he came from, what his parents were like, what would be different if they were alive.But it’s also beautiful that Teddy will have such a different experience. And his experience will not be different because Voldemort is “really gone.” His experience will be different because his grandmother will tell him about his brilliant mom. Because Harry will tell him about his wonderful dad. Because Harry will help him deal with his pain and loss, be a sympathetic ear who understands what it’s like to grow up without your parents. Because the Weasleys will welcome him as another grandchild, and he’ll grow up with Victoire to throw dirt at, and James as a little brother. His experience won’t be different because Harry won a war, it will be different because of love.That’s the whole story of Harry Potter. Sometimes we have to fight for what’s right, but what really makes life worth living and what really changes the world isn’t magic or power or moral superiority. It’s love.
