If you’re a man, and a woman friend confides in you about how shitty men are, it’s because she considers you one of the good ones–someone it’s safe to vent to. Don’t ruin that vibe with some “not all men” crap. She knows. That’s why she’s talking to you. You don’t have to say it; she’s already telling you, just not in so many words. If you were one of the ones she was talking about, she wouldn’t be confiding in you about it, so instead of getting offended, you should feel honored, my droogie.
found this when looking thru my folder and it was just called vent. is past me ok
the worst memories of being bullied is when ppl would pretend not to be bullying you and ask you questions and u thought they were just asking u stuff but they were actually laughing at you the entire time and u had no idea bcos you were young and you didnt understand why people would be mean to you when you didnt do anything wrong.
don’t let the people who have hurt you ruin the things you enjoy. you used to watch that show with your ex? if you love it, keep watching it. your former friend introduced you to your favorite band? don’t stop listening to their music. it might hurt at first, but eventually it’ll stop feeling like it’s their thing and start feeling like your thing again.
not to be like “oh my psychology teacher said blah blah” but in my psychology class, we are learning about classical conditioning and pavlov’s dogs. and you can, of course, become conditioned to associate a stimulus (your favorite band/show) with another stimulus (your former friend/ex). but the thing is, when you keep interacting with the former stimulus without the latter, then a process called “extinction” happens, where you stop associating the stimuli when it keeps occurring without the other. so, this process of reclamation actually has a scientific basis!
