We could totally turn this image into a PerpetuallyDistraughtJohn meme or something.
The city of Minneapolis lit the I-35 bridge like this Tuesday night to celebrate the passage of marriage equality in Minnesota.
(If I ever own a bridge it will be lit up like this bridge allllll the time cos rainbows.)
I wish I could do this but it’s not possible because they did.
Good to know that self harm is getting more creative.
… so only 10% of people are worrying unnecessarily :D
is it called crush because they will crush your heart into million pieces
You hear their voices in your head.
I do a good mimic of the voices too. It’s the best bit in the song for singing. It’s almost on par with Anastasia’s Learn To Do It for funness in voice variation.
hey, yeah, can we not with this “testing people” thing
because if you feel the need to “test” someone then that means you’re trying to make them prove things to you without their knowledge. you are trying to control them. you are manipulating them. there are a variety of reasons people may not contact you first, including but not limited to
- they need alone time
- they prefer to be approached
- they’re too shy
- they feel smothered
- they’re tired
- they’re busy
- they’re directing their attention to other people (though not your expense because people can have multiple friends!!)
- it doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t miss you
- or don’t like you
- you can’t read peoples’ minds
- don’t put words in their mouths
- it makes you look like an asshole
how about when you feel like your needs aren’t being met in a relationship, you fucking talk about it instead of being a jerk and doing this
It’s terribly unfair to set invisible standards in relationships and then expect your friends to live up to them/be inexplicably disappointed in them when they don’t.
Seriously I used to do this all the time to everyone and all I can say is GROW OUT OF IT. Grow out of it as quickly as possible.
another thing too - don’t judge your worth as a friend based on whether or not people can function without you
because that doesn’t measure how much you mean to them, it measures how dependent they are on you and that is something entirely different and also problematic and unhealthy after a certain point.
i have my fair share of friends who i love and cherish and genuinely think of as my own family, but we rarely IM each other and sometimes we hang out a lot and sometimes we don’t get together for weeks or months, and we can do that because we are confident and comfortable with our friendship - we don’t depend on each other, we love each other.
if you’re expecting your friend to lay on the floor and cease functioning because you stopped talking to them, then you’re expecting the result of an unhealthy, overly dependent relationship.
a proper friend doesn’t comfort you by patting your ass all day to prove to you that they’re always there, but with the mutually understood promise that they will be there for you with open arms whenever they can if you need to go to them, for advice or comfort or fun or whatever else.
A friend of mine used to do this in school.
Not to me, but to other people. And she’d tell me about it and how she was “testing” them, and how they needed to “prove” to her that she meant enough to them etcetc.
And it was one of the things I disliked most about her character.
96% of people i care about are from the internet
For this to be true, you have to care about at least 50 people.
I’m not even sure I care about 5 people.
Clearly I need to take up smoking and coffee. If only I’d realised earlier in life! Silly me.
i wonder what it’s like to be so good looking that people get nervous talking to you
Do you even notice though? I bet you don’t.
