your body is 93% stardust so dont give up little star (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
"Since every element in the periodic table aside from hydrogen is essentially stardust, we have to determine how much of our body is made up of this stardust. If we know how many hydrogen atoms are in our body, then we can say that the rest is stardust. Our body is composed of roughly 7x10
27 atoms. That is a lot of atoms! Try writing that number out on a piece of paper: 7 with 27 zeros behind it. We say roughly because if you pluck a hair or pick your nose there might be slightly less. Now it turns out that of those billion billion billion atoms, 4.2x10 27 of them are hydrogen. Remember that hydrogen is bigbang dust and not stardust. This leaves 2.8x10 27 atoms of stardust. Thus the amount of stardust atoms in our body is 40%.
Since stardust atoms are the heavier elements, the percentage of star mass in our body is much more impressive. Most of the hydrogen in our body floats around in the form of water. The human body is about 60% water and hydrogen only accounts for 11% of that water mass. Even though water consists of two hydrogen atoms for every oxygen, hydrogen has much less mass. We can conclude that 93% of the mass in our body is stardust. Just think, long ago someone may have wished upon a star that you are made of.” (

Oh, love, I know what it is like to relapse. You feel disgusted and repulsed by yourself and your inability to remain on the healthy course towards recovery. These feelings of hopelessness and self-loathing become so overwhelming that the thought of recovery seems futile.
Nevertheless, you cannot have recovery without relapsing at least a few times.
Recovery is a rocky process that often includes many twists and turns as well as setbacks. Nevertheless, there will come a time when you no longer need to worry of acquiring the urge to slice or burn your skin. Though it may seem unrealistic, it will occur if you keep moving forward. Remind yourself that this relapse will assist you on your road to recovery. As well, have these terrible feelings self-harm produced to be your incentive to not self-mutilate again.
I am so proud that you’re making an effort to recover, lovely. You should be pleased that you have been able to overcome the trials and tribulations you’ve faced thus far. It is only a matter of time when you’ll be able to live life to the fullest of its capabilities.
I’m here if you need anything, okay? Stay strong~!
Anonymous said: I met my boyfriend on here and we live an hour apart and been talking for more than 11 months. I haven't met him yet bc I'm incredibly insecure bc I know he thinks I'm 10x more attractive than I actually am. I don't know if I should listen to my head bc I know my social anxiety will not allow me to meet him or should I listen to my heart and force myself to go through something really uncomfortable for me? I feel like he's almost not worth it & I'd rather just end it but I need a second opinion
Oh, love, I know what it is like to acquire social anxiety. It is painful, and often feels as though you’re confined to an inescapable prison. Nevertheless, this opportunity of meeting your companion for the first time may be the perfect opportunity to break the shackles of the mental disorder at hand. While it may be incredibly uncomfortable and unsettling at first, you’ll later be grateful that you allowed yourself to overcome this mental obstacle. As well, I’m sure your companion would be overjoyed to experience such a wonderful individual as yourself.
Nevertheless, please remember that while the Internet may seem like a sheltered and guarded place, dangers still remain. Have your parents converse with his parents and/or guardian in order to ensure that the person you’ve spoken to for the last eleven months is who he claims to be. After all, you can never be too careful! ((Oh, God, I sound like my parents.))
I’m here if you need anything, lovely~! Stay positive.
If only you could see the light that shines within you. This light acquires a sort of marvelous wonder that often causes me to be dazed by its utter brilliance. While you may believe your past mishaps and other shortcomings to have dulled this light, I do not believe so. It is your imperfect perfection that makes you the beautiful human being I see standing right before me.
Whether you love me or not plays little to no significance in my eyes as I’ve come to the realization that I will forever be enclosed in love’s vicious entrapment. Your image is burned within my cerebrum; your spirit flows through my veins. It is you and you alone that gives me purpose. Without you, what’s the fucking point?
I hope one day you can see the beauty that lies within you because:
You are not a fuck-up, you’re a masterpiece.
You are not a moron, you’re a mastermind.
You are not insignificant, you’re the universe with stars for eyes.
I love you. Aug 28
Anonymous said: Can you do a "Dear boyfriend," please? :) I love your work! Hope you're super cool!
Well, I won’t do a “dear boyfriend” as I am a straight male. However, I am more than happy to do a “dear girlfriend.” xD
Ok so I have a friend who is recovering from depression/suicide. We were never super close to begin with and when the suicide attempts and such started she cut me off completely. Understandable, I suppose. Anyways, I’m making her a birthday card, and I want to show support but not be too overbearing when it’s not my place, you know? How does this sound?: “I was super excited to see you at registration! I hope that means you’ve been doing better? I’m real proud of you.”
Love, it’s very kind that you’re taking your friend’s mental health into account while writing this letter/card of endearment for her. While you may not be incredibly close to her, remind her that you do care for her and wish to see her as the vibrant and healthy character she once was. Moreover, remind her that you’re always available to communicate, and that you’re there for her.
These statements, along with the ones you mentioned in the ask, will allow her to understand that someone out there cares. It is kind words such as these that will allow her to feel comforted and accepted, especially during such a dark time. It may even allow you two to establish a closer relation than what you have both experienced in the past.
Hey! I’m ellie I’m 16. I had sex with my bf a few hours ago and the condom broke. Should I get the morning after pill with him tomorrow? Will I be harmed? It will be my first use of it. Will it work?
Love, if you do not want to get pregnant, I strongly suggest taking the morning after pill. The sooner you take said pill, the more effective the pill’s effect will be. Morning after pills are not abortion pills (RU-486), but an emergency contraceptive that prevents pregnancy from occurring after unprotected sex. The pill, therefore, is not lethal in any form.
In order to acquire said pill, visit your local pharmacy. Such morning after pills as Plan B One-Step are available in the family planning aisle at many pharmacies. As well, you do not need a prescription or be of a certain age in order to attain the medicine.

Anonymous said: A good friend of me (maybe I have some secret feelings for her...), will go for some month to africa. I'm very happy for her, but on the other hand I'm really sad that I will not see her for a long time. I don't know how to handle this, I don't know if I have enough power to stand this, because she is my light in the world and everytime I see or phone her, I feel better. She is some of the reasons that I come every weekend to my hometown. I don't know what do to without her.
Oh, love, try to remember that her absence is not permanent. While it may be difficult to separate yourself from her for an extended period of time, seeing as she is your friend, remind yourself that that light you once spoke of will shine again. In the meantime, however, try to send her e-mails, and find times in which both of you could possibly instant message or webcam. Google+, Skype, Oovoo, and a number of other social networking sites give individuals such as yourself the possibility to communicate with companions from far distances for no charge.
Nevertheless, remember to keep in mind that allowing your happiness and joy to rely solely on one person is quite dangerous. This sort of attachment can often breed misfortune and adversity. Remind yourself that you take precedence, and try to strengthen yourself as an individual. Find hobbies, sports, and other forms of avocation that will not only provide positive outlets, but allow you to connect and get to know yourself better.
I’m here for you if you need anything! Stay positive~!
