    When I was a student, all that was told to me was how much my cultura didn’t matter. How important European art and standards are, and how totally dominant their aesthetic should be. All I wanted to do was tell my story. And I looked nothing like what is considered relevant or beautiful or important by society’s ideals. But I JUST.KEPT.GOING. Here are some of my pieces. I’m here to uplift and change who is in the spotlight. Powerful womyn of color. My indigenous sisters.

    I am the boyfriend of the divine woman who created these paintings! Over 800 notes in two days? You guys have no idea how proud I am of her!

    Future generations will be studying Crystal Galindo’s work like we study Frida and Diego’s work now. Mark my words.

    Awww I love you, baby! Thank you for sharing and believing in me!

    TIPS FOR DEALING WITH PEOPLE IN PAIN

"When they don’t love you the way you want to, you mourn that for however long you need to. But then you get back up and you remind yourself. You are not a reflection of the people who can’t love you. You will love again. You will be loved again." - Caitlyn Siehl

    "Subtle bruises in the
    tone of your voice
    tell me the pain has
    not yet evaporated,
    that there is still more
    healing to be done.

    Let me be the army that
    helps you win your war.
    You’re not alone."

    Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope. 
    I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
    40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love. 

    wow more people in my life need to read this

    emotionally manipulative things you should never say to people:

    • "i would kill myself without you"
    • "everyone leaves me, don’t leave me like they did"
    • basically anything that guilts the other person into staying in a relationship with you

    this post is important

    Yup.
