a. dont run away from home or friends or problems. they all come back to you, or in some cases, you always have to go back to them.
b. having a blueberry mojito when you’re sick is not a very good idea but i’m sure everyone already knows that so this point is pointless.
c. being honest is really helpful sometimes.
d. you don’t have to understand yourself for someone else to understand you. sometimes, they might do a better job at it.
e. it’s not a bad thing to ask for help. it doesn’t make you weak or vulnerable. but it’s important to be there for them too. it needs to work from both the sides. help the ones who help. sometimes the shrink needs a shrink too. have some ice cream along with that. makes the heart-to-heart a little more nice.
f. happiness is very very precious along with classic playlists (stolen from dad’s collection.)
g. if you have something really nice to say, say it. it might make someone’s day and it will make your day too then. and you never know how much the other person needs it. why stop yourself from making someone else feel better (even if you’re an awkard sap like me who doesnt know how to make someone feel better properly but hey, that doesnt stop me from spamming someone i like)
h. no bad day lasts longer than two days. no bad feeling last longer than a week. that’s something you’ll realise when you re-read old angry journal entries.
i. everyone has a different coping mechanism, you can’t judge them for that. and you can never pretend to know what they’re feeling, all you can do is make them feel a little better.
j. kind words are always appreciated.
