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.
rather than saying that it gets easier or it gets better, what if we just drew a line, y’know, like we said “This far and no fucking further” like ‘the world can have this, the world can say this, the world can broadcast this, but at this point, this is me and who i am and who i’m going to be’
it’s actually the idea behind this entire album, especially behind this song, that at some point you have to stand up for yourself and it’s ok that you’re different and it’s ok that it doesn’t get easier because you can go out into the world and wear songs like this as your armour, or art that you do as your armor or you’re weird fuckin hair colour or whatever it is. At some point you draw the line and you say to the world “IS THAT ALL YOU FUCKING GOT?!”

YOU CAN GET THEM REPAIRED THOUGH. There’s a place in NYC called Denim Therapy; I’ve had my favorite jeans fixed by them, where it was almost as big a hole as this one. They use some kind of really tough lattice-type cotton and so far (it’s been 6 months) the jeans are still perfect.
You just mail them in with a note explaining what you want fixed and they mail them back in like two weeks. It was like $15 too - SO WORTH IT since jeans are a bitch and a half to shop for.
I wish I could take advantage of this service, omg
You’re not a bad person for the ways you tried to kill your sadness.
- go outside to feel the sun (5-15 minutes is recommended)
- if there is no sun step outside and inhale fresh air
- drink water - the more cups the better
- listen to one song that makes you happy
- talk to one person you like - do not hesitate to reach out
- stretch; don’t forget about your body
- smile in the mirror
