not really nice
I’m apparently able to find many angry things to Ben about through sarcasm.
Dr. Watson doesn’t write to you, he talks to you, with Edwardian courtesy, across a glowing fire. His voice has no barriers or affectations. It is clear, energetic and decent, the voice of a tweedy, no-nonsense colonial Britisher at ease with himself. Its owner is travelled. He has knocked about, as they say, browned his knees. Yet he remains an innocent abroad. He is a first-class chap, loyal to a fault, brave as a lion, and the salt of the earth. All the clichés fit him, but he is not a cliché.
i tried to trap the repo man by moving him in my sim’s pool, but he just swam through the floorboards and right out the door…
He was polite enough to open the door on the way out at least!
The problem with having a clinically depressed friend (or friends) has very little to do, for the friend who is not depressed, with depression.
The problem for those of us who want only to help is realizing how little we can do. I can take my friend, offer her retreat in my home for the weekend. Shelter her out here in the wilderness with a crackling warm fireplace and a bed of her own away from the toxic environment she lives in. I can feed her home cooked meals and chocolate treats and show her how to laugh again at funny movies and gossip about old high school friends.
I can do all of these things. I can give her that weekend of solace and healing, but I can’t save her from having to go back to work and all her stresses at home.
The problem with being friends with a depressed individual is that you want to shield them from all the things that have hurt them, but you know it just isn’t possible.

Hi, I’m a Taurus and yes.
… And, in fandom, everyone seems to jump right towards Eros, passionate love with sensual desire.
But there’s also Storge, familial love.
There’s Philia, the love of a friend.
And Agape, unconditional, self-sacrificing love.
Sometimes, I think we limit ourselves.
Reblogging this again because it continues to be relevant.
You mean two characters can love each other in a platonic way? *GASP* Say it isn’t so!
All I want for christmas is mental stability
Nope guys. Don’t buy this. Its really expensive for its lack of usefulness and it likes to flash a blue screen of death at you when you need it most. For a cheaper product that does pretty much the same thing, I would recommend investing in whats called a “Public Face.” Use this face as needed, but put it away when you get home. All though the “Public Face” has a few glitches of its own, it has a much better OS than “Mental Stability.”
