That point in a piece of fanfiction where you can tell something embarrassing is about to happen so you start fucking around on tumblr because you’re a huge baby with a crippling overabudance of empathy.
I do this with every media I consume. I pause movies and have to walk around and prepare myself for second-hand embarrassment sometimes.
per prepararmi alle 9 ore di domani e alle altre 9 ore di dopodomani che sono anche rispettivamente secondo e terzo giorno di ciclo guardo gli ultimi episodi della seconda stagione di friday night lights o byzanthium con la gemmona arterton che sono mesi che ce l’ho lì o vado avanti con la seconda di oitnb (chepperò sono all’inizio)
“Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.
And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.
