why is there such a negative connotation that goes along with internet friends like i can talk to someone that is half way around the world and lives a completely different and amazing life than me and all people have to say about it is “oh…that’s weird”
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.

I really hate being an introvert because I sometimes think “oh hey, I can totally hang out with a bunch of people right now! I can handle it! I hate being alone!!” and then three hours into hanging out I realize how draining of energy it is for me to be around other people and I just want to curl up into a ball and isolate myself for the rest of my life.
every single person you know has something in their life and past that is probably worth collapsing to the ground in an uncontrollably sobbing heap over, so be nice to each other and tell good jokes
watching Sam and Dean working cases in s1 makes me laugh because they’re suited up and they’re like “yes hello we’re trained professionals….we have credentials or whatever………..trust us”
and then you look at them and they’re these two fresh-faced pretty boys with suspiciously styled hair and ugly ties and a tendency to stand too close to each other
like ok kids
