"Always Starting Over"
So I’ve been tagged by itsneverpastmybedtime to do the Five things I like about me thing, whatever.
I didn’t notice your post until this morning Eva, I’m sorry!
1. I love my eyebrows ok
2. I speak 2 languages fluently (kind of)
3. I fall asleep within five minutes
4. I love surprising people
5. I’m good at keeping secrets
Or, you know, you could just stop saying sorry.
I take it you don’t have anxiety.
You can’t “just stop saying sorry”. You do something, something so little, like accidentally bump into someone. You feel horrible about it. Your brain starts panicking and you have trouble trying to breathe. You stutter an apology. They say it’s okay, but you accidentally do it again, and you apologize again. They just say “Aha, you can stop saying sorry.” And you feel horrible that you’ve probably made them angry or upset, so you mutter out an apology for the third stupid time, and they just say to stop saying sorry. Stop saying sorry.
You can’t just tell someone to stop saying you’re sorry.
I want that comment on flyers so I can hang them in my school
reblogging this one for the GOOD commentary.
If you’re going to tell someone to stop saying sorry say, “You don’t have to apologize to me.” and smile. If they say sorry again just say, “You’re fine.” and keep smiling and move on. The faster the situation is resolved the faster the person with anxiety can start to calm down. Please don’t get angry at someone for saying sorry, sometimes that’s all the person feels like they can do.
I’ve always been really bad about this and as a kid I’d always do it around my parents and my mom would always say “STOP SAYING YOURE SORRY.” thank you to the helpful comment.
FEELING LIKE YOU BOTHER THE ONLY PERSON YOU WANT TO TALK TO IS REALLY SHITTY
wants to listen to something other than showtunes
realises I don’t have anything other than showtunes
ends up listening to showtunes
"You have to trust your abilities, work really hard and know you can do it. If you don’t get a part it isn’t the end of the world, there will be more chances.
If you are afraid of rejection you won’t learn why you didn’t make it. You just have to laugh about it. You won’t feel great about it at the time, but just know that in a week or so you will feel better.”—-Willemijn Verkaik (via fantasylover7)
