Me: I mean, I guess there were times in my life where my sexuality made me feel broken, but that was about society, not about me.
Emma: Don’t worry love. There’s already all sorts of ways in which you’re really broken. You don’t need to start making things up.

reasons why we don’t make fun of seemingly odd triggers
I’m calling this crap out. How is this a fair standard to hold people to? Counselors are licensed professionals who spend years studying psychology, not kids online trying to maintain positive attitudes, often against REALLY difficult circumstances. How are sad teens supposed to know how to approach this kind of thing?
Maybe this is just a joke but it’s tiring watching grown-ass adults complain about kids trying to look out for each other. Cringe all you want but grow up about it and keep your petty grouchiness to yourselves
Friends who reblogged this - you can do better
Not to mention I’ve had counselors who’ve said things that did more damage than help.
Hell yeah having a friend try to explain to me that I am loved and safe and special is good, even if the mode of delivery is silly or casual. And my current counselor is amazing, but I would rather here about my sunlight bug flesh then sit through an hour of nasty insinuations and condescending explanations.
