I’ve been feeling extra sad and emotional when someone is mean to me. These things never affected me in the past. But the pandemic has changed me who I am as a person.
What’s your favorite way to not let other people’s words affect your feelings?

If someone makes you feel this way you should really maintain as much distance from that person as possible, even if it is your own parents.

Can you expand on that? How are they being mean? It’s unusual everyone would be mean, that seems to be a bigger problem than trying to figure out how to deal with that.

People that lash out are usually the most insecure. Think about all your blessings and realize how freaking lucky we are.

Anyone had experience with their kitty having high liver enzymes? Noticed my cat wasn’t eating for a day and took him to the vet. Turns out his levels are over 1000 when normal should be under 200.

I unexpectedly met the guy I plan to marry but since us meeting was unexpected I haven't gotten a chance to basically sleep around the way I'd like to before settling down forever. Conflicted about proposing a break for this reason, but worried he might move on in the meantime (which would be fair).
