its not a family gathering unless they point out all your insecurities
my baby brother just asked me what homophobic is and I told him that it means that you hate gay people and he said he’s not homophobic because he doesn’t hate gay people, he hates everyone.
I HATE IT WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ACTUALLY HAVE SOMETHING TO CONTRIBUTE TO A CONVERSATION AND YOU LIKE WORK UP ALL THIS COURAGE TO SAY THE THING AND YOU FINALLY SAY THE THING AND NOBODY EVEN HEARS YOU/ACKNOWLEDGES THAT YOU EVEN SAID ANYTHING AND YOU JUST FEEL DUMB AND UGH
someone saying that they’ve missed you
or that they appreciate you
or that something reminded them of you
basically someone making you feel that they’ve thought of you and that you being around means something to them
