When Self Care Means Letting Go

No one prepares you for toxic friendships, and when they slowly develop from something that was once healthy and fulfilling into something that eats away at your peace of mind, it’s even harder to come to terms with it. I never wanted you to become a stranger.

IWS / S2E2 / Toxic Relationships with Teagan + Sheila Johnston

“We don’t like going to the dentist.. We don’t like doing to the doctor… We just wanna stay moving forward at whatever cost. But if you hear something in the car moving and not sounding quite right, then you should take it in! Because you’re right! you’re right to hear that something is not quite right… And if taking it in aka talking to that person about the relationship means that its gonna cost you 5000$ and your van is dead thats better than you driving this really horrible van thats gonna kill ya. So if you’re in a relationship and you’re hearing these noises take it in… Sometimes its a very fixable thing!”

“I feel like there’s this idea that we need to, as individuals, have all the skill sets and do all of the things and be these multitasking brilliant people who can do all of the stuff by ourselves…. and that’s just a lot of pressure to put on yourself. thats unrealistic. you’re just never going to do everything as good as when you can just focus on what they love. People should be able to focus on what they love, really delve into that, and share it with people instead of having to be autonomous.”

Celibacy : Cause + Effect

I spent this time on focusing my “highest and best use of vital energy” on vital tasks. If I had been so focused on work, yet distracted by sex, then it was time to truly focus on this work. On school, on personal development, on herHABITAT, on moving across the country, on my non-sexual relationships…After 7 months I had effectively decided and planned to move across the country, finished school getting 100% on my last exam, travelled to Halifax 3 times… and on.

Elk Falls & Provoked Thoughts

Since so much of me is this foliage, I too, experience an unmasking of sorts as my walls that support my ego decide on a different floor plan. “Needs more space!” is the declaration and just when I thought things were starting to settle my map seems to change again. There is no getting to know yourself, there is only creating yourself. Only the observance of that only constant; the reality of never-not-broken.

IWS / EPISODE 7 / FT. JUMA PEREZ

“We know that sometimes fear comes from ourselves and sort of egging on our anxieties but I think it another part of where fear comes from is from societal pressure about what we are supposed to be doing and like your obligation as a person, as an artist, as a business person. When you decide to delve into this creative world there is a process to it.. a definite process and people are always going to be a part of that, watching that. fear comes from society basically saying this is the way you should be doing and creativity is saying fuck, no, thats now how I’m doing it and those things contradict themselves every time you try to work them together.”
