- pain said he’s going to pax and im seriously worried he’ll swat that place too, so i just want to post a warning to everyone.

Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions.
