It’s okay, pup. I will gladly sacrifice the comfort of my legs to allow you to be cute and comfortable.
having social anxiety is bad because you cant have any relationships with anyone without spending all of your time consumed with thoughts like “they all hate me, they all laugh at me, they all think i’m annoying, everyone hates me and they don’t care about me at all”
so don’t fucking go around acting like having anxiety in social situations is cool because its not and it fucking sucks

white people be naming their kids blanket and rebel but can’t take lulu
Eighty-nine years of life, over sixty years happily married to the same woman, six children, six grandchildren, seven great grandchildren. That is the mark my great grandfather left on this Earth. May he rest in peace and be reunited with his son.
We got home two hours ago from being at the hospital after spending about 9 hours with 10+ family members in the room. My older sister and I walked from her car into our house. My mom was taking an abnormally long time coming from her car with our little sister. I went outside to check on them - Sister sleeping. Mom crying in the front seat.
As soon as we parked our cars in our driveway, the moment we arrived home, my aunt called my mom from the hospital to tell her that their grandfather, my great grandfather, stopped breathing. They were all singing to him, and he stopped breathing.
I just stood there listening to my mom cry, she had yet to even leave the driver’s seat. I never know what to do. But today taught me to not be afraid to give comfort, to not be afraid to show affection, to not be afraid to reach out and help those who are expected to reach out and help me. So I held her when we got in the house. It was less than a minute before she said she was okay and had me let her go. It’s going to take time for my family to adjust.
I am glad I came home as quickly as I did. I wouldn’t have been here to help. I would have been just hours late of my great grandfather’s death.
But I am fine. We will be okay.
If you ever want me to cry just play the sad songs from the Strawberry Panic! OST and there ya go.
I can’t wait until I have my own car. I will no longer have to bother all my friends who have cars.
I want to go home and play my drums. I need to make music.
why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.
The reason no one else knows this is because it’s not true.
It’s fine to call someone or something pusillanimous if they’re acting timid or cowardly, but there’s no etymological connection between the words pusillanimous and pussy*. It’s a false cognate.
* I apologize for the terrible font on that web page.
And even if it did come from “pusillanimous,” that really doesn’t matter. It is still used in our modern language to reference genitalia. Which, by the way, this all is super cissexist. Anyway, the whole “etymology” excuse is never valid when a word or phrase is used in ways such as this. Language changes. How fascinating.
