These are from a wonderful book called The Art Of Comforting. Check it out and learn how to be better at supporting people going through difficult things.
Many useful things to be picked up from here when speaking to those you love or anyone for that matter. One that sticks out to me is under the “Why” Question of "Why didn’t your sister call you sooner?".
There have been so many times that I have seen friends hurt both intentionally and unintentionally by other friends. Often times I see others jump quickly to chastise the offending party as opposed to focusing on the actual emotional impact the offending party has brought about . While steering the conversation to belittle the offending party may seem like support to your friend. I find this type of comfort is often superficial and of less value than supporting your friend and having them work through their feelings. It can often further resentment, making a small miscommunication appear to be a much bigger and purposeful altercation.
In other words, when comforting friends who have been wronged by other friends it can sometime be a more therapeutic route to simply walk with them through their feelings rather than jumping to ‘venting’ about the opposing party. This can lead to your friend explaining how the offending parties actions have affected their feelings, as opposed to derailing a much needed conversation into mere gossiping.
as much as i criticize tetsuya nomura he was hugely influential to me in highschool and just by the fact that he designed FF7 he’s had a major effect on my art since the very first rpg i ever played. I learn a lot from his style and watching it grow and change, and while i don’t always like his stories or choices i recognize the contributions he’s made to my life.
i just replayed KH2 and realized its still a great fucking game and that my avoidance of it was a result of the fandom being obnoxious and not because the game did anything wrong ( not going to comment on the many spin offs..).
These two are an old otp of mine but they’re also adorable besties who just always need to hug and be happy. Understanding and communication and friendship. I love them.
I saw a cute fanart of Ami and Mako wearing each other’s fuku recently, and it made me want to see how each of the girls’ color palettes would look on each other. I used coloring book pages from Tsuki Matsuri.
EDIT: fffffffffff Tumblr resized them down to shite. Gonna put the high-res files up on imgur or something for closer scrunity. BRB.
EDIT2: They’re in an album HERE!
you are making me lose control of my emotions and it is infuriating
