when i was in 7th grade, this girl changed her facebook relationship status to “it’s complicated” and i asked her who she was complicated with and she responded with “being single is complicated…” and i just logged off i couldn’t do it anymore
If you’re a boy who walked up to younger/nerdier girls in the hallway during high school and said “hey my friend thinks you’re cute” and then burst into giggles along with said friend then I really hope you’re doing badly in life
people like this are the reason i cant believe anyone calling me pretty.
Pretend that they’re not causing grievous bodily harm as they “brush” your hair.
Always be serious when asked what you’d like for dinner, and never say something silly like rabbit soup. Because they will go get their stuffed one off the bed, put it in your best pot, and fill said pot with water. Then place it on your desk.
Greet their make believe friends and ask how their day was.
Always kiss the teddy bear goodnight. It has feelings too.
Always pretend to die when they shoot you.
If you are having a fake war with them and you shoot them and they say they can’t die because they are invincible, you don’t shoot them again, because they are invincible.
Yes, their drawing does look like a butterfly, not a bunch of jumbled up lines.
Them pounding on the piano is the best thing you have ever heard.
no but seriously it’s very important to a child’s development to not be shut down by parents and other caregivers
I’m probably going to get hate for this, but what else is new. Don’t indulge this behavior.
You can do this shit with a kid, but don’t do it blindly. Tell them you are going to play with them, but don’t just let them think that the phone is real. Don’t let them be convinced the teddy bear has feelings. Tell them the fake cookie is fake, but you will pretend to eat it.
Teach kids as young as you can about reality, life, and science. Yell as loud as you want, “BUT THEY ARE CHILDREN AND NEED THE MAGIC AS LONG AS THEY CAN.” It’s BS. You know why? Because as soon as they hit a certain age, people go cold on them, reject them, and tell them to “grow up”.
If you play this fantasy behavior, then (1) you’re either letting them think everything is their way or no way, causing for them to scream and cry when they are 12 and don’t get an iphone 5, or (2) setting them up for deeper depression at 12+ when they get hit with the cold and hard reality that life is not all butterflies and sunshine.
There’s a lot of fucked up shit about what is considered proper with childhood development—because look at how kids turn into teens and adults.
I don’t feel like arguing this, I just wanted to rant like the selfish kid getting the Xbox One instead of PS4.
so there’s a post going around about a person who is claiming that they will kill themselves on december 7th if that post doesn’t get 100k notes
1.) that person’s blog is now inactive, and has text on it stating that the person in question no longer has access to it and is apparently a rather hateful person who was just doing it for attention (i don’t know if that’s true, but i don’t have any reason to believe that this person has access to their blog)
2.) posts like that are very manipulative, even if they are legitimate. if i were to make a post like that, of COURSE you’d reblog it. it’s basic click bait, and anybody would reblog something like that if you had any reason to believe it was real, but that person should be talking to somebody instead of trying to raise a stink on a website
3.) THAT SHIT CAN BE HELLA TRIGGERING FOR PEEPS WHO ARE HEAVILY SUICIDAL. they see a post going around for this person who is getting all their attention for their troubles, and they go “oh, well that’s nice. too bad nobody’s doing something like that for me” and can feed in to their depression. THIS MAY NOT BE THE CASE FOR ALL DEPRESSED PEEPS, but it is seriously something to consider
if you’re ever feeling suicidal or depressed, my inbox is always open, anon or not. hit me up yo, we’ll get your shit sorted to the best of my ability. it doesn’t take 100k people to save a life. More often than not, it only takes one.
I don’t know how Nico gets up every morning, I really don’t.
Knowing that everyone hates him or is at least creeped out by him, to be treated as though he’s contagious, keeping the secret of his sexuality, missing his sister every day, and in love with a boy he’ll never have… and he still gets up every day and fights for the people who treat him that way, and for the boy he loves.
If that isn’t true strength, I don’t know what is.
