Skogsrån (watchers of the forest) are mysterious women who guard the forest and all its creatures. Seen from the front they are unearthly beautiful, but their backs are hollow like old and rotten trees, and they often have the tail of an animal. To protect the forest, they seduce and sleep with woodcutters and then steal their souls, leaving them empty husks of their former selves.
Holy shit. It’s just the gif. With the line. And not a joke or a meme or anything.
WHAT IS THIS
One does not simply find the original gif
Life here is busy and I’m tired. I have to remember something better is coming…freedom.
One of the greatest strengths we have is the ability to be vulnerable. To open ourselves, be raw, and open. This vulnerability is the ticket to freedom. I used to deal with life by bottle my feelings and create walls to prevent connection. To not hurt, to not feel, to not live. When we let go of barriers that prevent us from being anything but ourselves, we find greater connection to love, live, and be free. #everydayisapractice
