This is the best thing I have ever read in my entire existence
i took you for granted, VHS. i took you for granted..
i think we have a youngster over here…
1. Cognitive Dissonance - the idea that when we hold two conflicting thoughts or beliefs, we unconsciously adjust to make one fit with the other. My social psychology professor gave an example of a student who values studying all the time, but slacks off when it comes to their favorite television show. So the student tells herself that watching the television helps her study later when it really doesn’t. However, telling herself that helped her eased the anxiety.
2. Hallucinations are common - one third of people report experiencing hallucination at some point in time. Similarly, normal people often have paranoid thoughts. So when was the last time you hallucinated?
3. The Placebo effect - this is when you think that something like a drug has an effect on you when really it doesn’t. It’s your thoughts that actually resulted in you getting better.
i just need someone that can stand me when i’m sad and remind me i’m not a piece of shit every once in a while
Finding someone worth waking up to is better than finding someone to sleep with.
Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience
