Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.

I did my first paper cut in absolutely ages today! Really happy with how it turned out. It’s the line ‘I will be safe in my frame’ from the Tori Amos song Parasol. Here’s a link to a live version of the song for anyone interested: linkIt’s available to buy in my shop here as a one off piece, and I’m also open for commissions! :)

Just did my first paper cut in a while and posted it over on my primary blog! It’s in my shop for anyone who is interested, and I’m also open for custom orders! :)
