Last night I saw her.
In a dream I spoke with her.
I knew it was a dream because she was happy.
She was free
from the ravages of his influence upon her.
She was her own
And I loved her
Cool, but not sure what the point is.

EE: Give this guy a hand with his GoFundMe project!! Paddle With Purpose is the Florida clean up idea using a kayak to get the most trash from our waterways. Every little bit helps!!!
EE: I love that he falls out of his chair laughing!
I’m 35 years old. I was never really exposed to self-harm or cutting. I’d heard it mentioned before but didn’t understand or even give it a second thought. I’ve always dealt with depression and self-image issues. Last year my second wife left me. She was here one day and then she was gone. I didn’t get a goodbye or an explanation. My dad’s alcoholism was also at its worst. I was doing what I was supposed to do. Working 60 hours a week, paying the bills, trying to make everybody happy, making sure everybody knew how much I loved them. But nothing was working. My wife was struggling big-time with addiction and ultimately chose the pills over me. My dad chose the alcohol over me. My son chose my ex over me. It all fell apart. I held a .45 to my head many nights waiting for the courage to pull the trigger. For whatever reason I didn’t do it.
I don’t remember when but at some point I ordered a tattoo kit on Amazon. One night I decided to try and make a mark on my skin so that no matter what I would always remember the pain I was feeling. But something else happened. The pain I felt from the tattoo needle puncturing my skin replaced the pain in my heart. Not permanently of course but the rush of pain and adrenaline and drawing of blood somehow made all the other bullshit feel a lot better for a short time. Since then I’ve done it 6 times. I haven’t done it in a while but I’ll do it again.
I’m just sharing this to let people know that I understand. I totally get why you cut yourself and other methods of self-harm and while I don’t think its the most constructive way to manage the hurt I don’t think its any better or worse than having some fugly, amateur looking tattoos. Everybody copes differently and if something works for you and helps you make it through another day then do whatever makes you feel better. Not a soul on this earth has the authority to judge you.
EE: Well put Peckface. I get this all too well. That is why some of us have lots of ink and metal in our bodies. It is an addiction because it eases the pain.
Don’t watch this if you’re soaked in gasoline because it will warm your heart and you will burn to death and die.
Holy Jesus that was adorable
I love in the end when he just goes “I’m leaving” -starts to leave then the little quietly says “I love you”. awwwww

The searing pain of my cynicism being burned away
My childhood in a nutshell
that little girl has phenomenal comic timing. her deadpan needs work but we all gotta start somewhere. I hope she’s working as a comedian somewhere and if she ever gets nervous about the crowd she just thinks to herself “cookie monster” and then goes out there and kills it.
…it never occurred to me before how strongly the Homestar vs. Little Girl puppet shorts were influenced by Sesame Street.
