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.
Thank you Michael Grant for understanding
Guys can we get this to 1500?
this man summed up everything i’ve been thinking for years
I used to go to a school where the principal purposely made sure we were assigned more homework than normal so that we would be “learning” instead of “on the streets acting like hooligans”. And they wonder why that entire city is known for their drug addicted rich kids.

Posting this because I have a feeling it’ll be the last time I’ll be in a bathing suit for a while because summers ending 👎👎.
