This. All the awards for Penelope. Here’s a fairy tale about a girl cursed at birth with a huge flaw in her genetics: the nose of a pig. Forced to grow up hidden away in her home, with a mother who scared her from ever entering the outside world, in fear of people cringing at her face and ridiculing her. She spends her whole life being told by her family that the only way to break the curse is to marry a man, for only another’s acceptance of her face would break the spell. But in the end, she runs away from her wedding, realizing that she doesn’t want to enter a loveless marriage just to break a curse she was born with. She doesn’t need a man to cure her, because she’s perfectly fine exactly the way she is. She finally accepts herself and loves herself for who she is, flaws and all. And that, my friends, is how the curse gets broken. Not by a man, not by true love. But by loving and accepting herself. Ugh, absolute perfection.
On December 6th 2013 I wrote: "I really want to and need to go to a proper therapist, but can’t afford that. I had a mild depression, which paired with my pre-existing issues made a lot of mess. I’m more or less fine now, depression-wise (I’m not a huge fan of myself, but I’m happy to be me again). However, I’m having a very hard time coping with the damage the illness has done (I lost sth very special, hurt someone’s feelings) so I’m not-exactly-fine in general”.
With no talent for art and crafts, I decided to put together these little bags in order to raise money (although my main blog is dedicated to BBC Sherlock, they are not related to any fandom). I started therapy January 15th 2014, and that’s only thanks to the lovely people who decided to buy little bags of random! :)
I’m still selling these and will keep doing so till the end of the therapy (that’s gonna take a while). Please help me to pay for the therapy by buying a little bag of random! You’ll find all the info here, together with updates on my progress.
Reblogging this post for signal boost helps too! Thank you in advance,
