Personal/Fandom blog. So I liveblog just about everything I do. Which mainly includes my personal life. Otherwise I just reblog cool and/or fandom stuff (BUT NOT HOMESTUCK BECAUSE I HAVE A SEPARATE BLOG FOR THAT). I abuse my tags with unnecessary commentary, so you're free to enjoy/ignore. sorry not sorry, you were warned! <3 []
A young man was tired of his dad always yelling at him to “just stop picking.” He finally told his dad, “when you tell me to just stop, it reminds me that I am failing myself and disappointing you, and makes me feel bad about myself.” Dad asked how he can help, and his son said, “Ask me to do you a favor, ask me something that will distract me.” Two days later, the young man is again in the bathroom, picking. Dad knocks on the door, “Hey son, would you come help me with the dishes?”
They both knew what this meant, but by being positive and redirecting, Dad could feel good about helping his son, and the son could feel good knowing that his dad supported him. Communicate your needs and the ones who love you will listen.
This is a great way to respond.
