Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.
#basically this #mental health #general *i’m sorry* and *let me snuggle you* comments will always be preferable over shoving a solution down their throat #especially if it’s advice of the *get your shit together* variety #chances are if they’re telling you about something they haven’t been able to do you suggesting that they suck isn’t going to do the trick (via seschat)

Wisdom is knowing that Frankenstein is the monster.
90% of the characters i love
- are assholes

When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit.
That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.
Shaving your legs. More like yoga in the shower with razor blades.
Who the hell wants to go to Westeros? Like…”Y’know what I want…some place where the bounty of the long-summer has been squandered and Winter is Coming..a place where your closest friends are either being shipped off to war or are already dead. And if there was an army of fucking frozen zombies riding undead elephants, bears, and direwolves, beating down the border, that would also be awesome…”
I’ll probably just wear T-shirts forever.
This is perfection.
FUCK THIS SENSATION
it feels exactly how it looks too lol
what I find fascinating is that “television static” is a pretty much universally understood visual representation of sleeping limbs. that’s amazing. is there any other painful sensation with such a clear visual connection??? i can’t think of any at the moment
