Legend’s video for his song “You and I” is a bold statement against the conventional beauty standards promoted by the typical R&B narrative — the one in which a ripped man meets an attractive young woman “with a booty" and wins her heart over the course of a couple of key changes. "You and I" subverts that narrow trope by instead featuring women of all ages, shapes, colors and sizes. It reminds everyone that love is about two people and their feelings — not two people and what society says is sexy.
my therapist taught me to start thinking of my anxiety as my panicky friend
this is so cute omg
Woah this is super useful!!
For all my anxious friends out there.
This totally works! Some of us get stuck in the sense that we *are* our emotions, so they overwhelm us and we can’t do anything about them. When you give your emotion an identity separate from you, it gives you the distance to make better judgments about it, and to comfort yourself better. 10/10 therapy veterans would recommend.
