I decided to make a blog post on positive self talk because I feel like it’s something so many of us don’t do very often. I can honestly say that I don’t do this as often as I should. Whenever I start to feel sad, depressed, or anxious I start to think and say things to myself that aren’t true. For example I may say that I deserve to be alone, that I’m not pretty, that I’m not successful, I don’t have any friends etc.
Usually once I’m out of this mood I don’t think these things anymore but I wonder if there is a way to reverse this thinking before it starts. I feel like so many of us don’t stop this talk until we feel better about ourselves.
I know that one thing I did for a while was writing the things I liked about myself on a piece of a paper and taping it to the back of my door. Then I also wrote in marker on a mirror I had a list of things I was with positive words and then a things I was not with words that were negative such as greedy, unemotional, and jealous.
These things were definitely helpful for a time but now I look for other options. So what I usually do now is read affirmations via Pinterest or I journal. But I’m always looking for more.
So what do you do for yourself that promotes more positive self talk and how do you combat negative self talks? Comment down below and let me know.

So for today I decided to touch on the topic of the term otaku and how others feel about it.
For those of you who don’t know otaku means someone who has obsessive interests. But it is mostly used when talking about anime or manga.
I understand that otaku is mostly associated with an negative term but I’ve noticed that the term is changing. Now while it can be negative I’ve seen it used in ways that don’t have a negative connotation and also that many people seem to embrace it.
I think it’s very similar to how many people look at the term geek or nerd. While before it was a bad thing to be called now many people want to be called that. Plus the clothes that many people feel that geeks or nerds wear is now trendy.
Also with the research that I’ve done on the term is actually used to refer to anyone that is obsessed with any particular form of entertainment. Not just anime! Which was interesting for me to read considering that’s mostly the context that I’ve heard it used to describe.
I also feel that everyone has an otaku moment. While it may not be all the time but if you have two people or more who meet and they like the same thing they are going to have an otaku moment.
I guess overall I don’t mind the term since we all have an otaku moment. Plus considering that the term is being used in a slightly more positive light it doesn’t have the sting that it used to have.
So what do you think of the term otaku? Do you think the term has changed? Also do you think everyone has an otaku moment? Comment down below and let me know!
