@Lcanon not necessarily a question for you, but generally, how do you practice detachment without becoming disengaged?
I think the LW might benefit by reading/listening to Brene Brown. I have The Power of Vulnerability (a lecture she gave, it isn't a book read by someone else) on my phone and I've listened to it probably 5 times. She researches shame and open-heartedness and the roadblocks we put up that get in the way of achieving open-heartedness. This description of her work makes it sound so cheesy and in no way does it justice, seriously, she's worth checking out.
@paddlepickle I really like this comment. It's happened to me too that I've fallen in love with guys that I know objectively aren't all that attractive, but who became the most attractive person in the world to me for the time I was in love. And if someone I don't know well tells me I'm beautiful I'm going to call bullshit, but if it comes from someone who loves me, I'm going to take it as "you're beautiful to me," and that's pretty awesome.
"if the internalized judgment of my (very judgmental) parents is freaking me out."
When your parents are very judgmental, it is so, so hard to avoid letting their judgmentalism influence you. Therapy is a big help.
@235323722@twitter I think they'll do pretty well. IMO, the author comes off as an entitled brat, and Glass Lewis & Co did the food truck owner a favor by letting him know his employee was acting inappropriately.
@cardiganboots except, Don Draper is also a horrible person. Neither Don nor Pete is something to aspire to.
This makes me so sad for the poor rabbits :(
@KenWheaton I thought it was, the gang was falling apart somehow - maybe they were too rattled - and group sex was to bring them closer together? Still nuts, though.
@robotosaur also, The Reaper's Image!! Pure scary (terrifying!) ghost story, no gore.
I am so sad this is over!!!!
