@Neeneen This happens to me all the time! We attach memories to feelings, so whenever we get an echo of that feeling, the memory can pop up. Even if the memory itself is vague, the feeling can be like an emotional flashback. The brain responding to complex trauma is confusing af

@MoMartin I agree 100% with everything in this thread thanks for putting it out so clearly

This is a lie. I read to discover myself, I write to discover myself, I am a clinical narcissist and my entire process is internal. Maybe.

Oh yeah I intended to do stuff today that wasn't just the internet.

I have one single line stuck in loop in my head from a random 90s Tamil song

What is brain

Remember also that he knows they need to be able to rationalize the "need" for violence, and that's why he has propaganda about "the violent muslim mob that was just being controlled". But they *know*.

Dont let them off the hook. There is shame there, use it.

A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”

It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”

It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)

By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.

And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.

@viv It was! Isolated beach area, too. I'm going back there again for an extended weekend just when fall starts.

@ghost_bird i don't usually do this but i was curious and i had time to check it out and ... :blobsweats:

those are some very specific and deliberately worded examples

Last weekend I camped at a place that had sparse woods on one side and a small lakeshore beach on the other. This was much needed, I think.

I think all Indian tv news anchors need to get off of twitter and go back to ground reporting again

Arnab Goswami is screaming for drugs, Navika Kumar shows pictures of dead bodies, and all of that nasty lot do their best to instigate communal riots. About time Indian news channels got an “Adults Only” certification.

it's just me or a decade ago it used to be way easier to form and maintaing long term friendships over the #internet?

Had a nice cup of hemp tea last night that helped me sleep well and feel refreshed and awake now, it almost feels like cheating the system

I've played all kinds of games but I still cannot land an airplane in *any* game decently without crashing and dying

You know what's funny? All these news anchors going on about how doobies mean drugs and that's baaaad. How many of them do you think are heading out after the camera switches off to the staircase to score one themselves? Yeah, I find that funny.
