When I’m out with friends, I see plenty of men look my way. But I get this feeling that they are looking at me as a “would bang” and not a “would date”.
Just a feeling.
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.
Reblogging for truth and also to remind myself.
I walked in the office with no clue what I was having done. I just hoped there would be nitrous.
