Other than the smilies I like using, you may have noticed the cute little icons with exclamation marks, so here’s a list of what they mean!
- [🖼️❗️] Credit given to the image source! This is for the image sites I frequent more; other images are individually credited. Do refer to to Credits page here.
- [❣️❗️] Highly sensitive people (HSPs) beware! The link with this icon leads to an article that may not be easy on our sensitive hearts, such as a detailed story of suffering, violence, etc.
- [🆎❗️] This link goes to a Japanese media (manga, etc) but is supplied with English translation. Because I can’t read Japanese. 🙂
Why These Cute Little Icons?
When I was writing this post, I was linking to various other articles and I found myself constantly typing, “HSPs beware! Reading this article may not be easy on our hearts!” At the same time, I found myself typing “Picture from [the same site]” several times in a row. After a few times, I felt like a broken recorder!
So I realised it’s time for an icon – after all, a picture is worth a thousand words. 🙂
If you have any suggestions for new icon definitions, do let me know!
A Short Self-Compassionate Letter
It’s wonderful of you to give alerts to others through these cute icons. ❤️
