You can enjoy a piece of media without making it a part of you. You can enjoy media and see its flaws at the same time. You can recognize that it has some fucked up messages w/o taking it as a reflection on yourself for enjoying it. I encourage you to do this with all media, especially the media you like. Don't look away from it, don't ignore it, and don't let it render you incapable of enjoying things

unrequested adhd ramble sorry 

@jordyd i have a hard time not getting obsessive over stuff i like and trying to make it part of myself, i dont know if thanks to adhd or my fault
and, then once that hyperfixation dies down, its usually hard to get me to even stare at the media without a wince
