@popstar thanks! i am really glad all those emotional details came through!

reminder that you don't have to contort your pain into irony or satire to in order to talk about it. people are complicated and multi-faceted; we all know that no one's happy all the time. laying your trauma, pain, or confusion down isn't "bringing others down with you". you're not burdening anyone when you unburden yourself.
So many of our interpersonal anxieties come from a lack of communication and a fear of asking the questions we might not like the answers to.
I know I put this off all the time, and every time I resolve it I vow to do better in the future. Inevitably though, those questions are tough to ask because they are dangerous, and yet what I find is that even the most dangerous answers turn out to be safer than you think.
@grayishknight true! thank you for the optimistic perspective!
