Random Thoughts and Words to Live By, Part 20

Friday, July 8, 2016

This week's words are from Internet user ariaste, grokked from The Mechanicky Gal:
Relationships are scary and complicated ONLY when you start thinking of your partner as some kind of adversary.

You know how to stop being scared of relationships? Remember that it's got a goddamned buddy system *built in.* That's all a relationship IS: "Let's approach life with the buddy system."

Check on your buddy. Make sure your buddy doesn't forget their lunchbox on the school bus. Hold hands with your buddy so you don't get lost. If your buddy wants to look at the monkey cage, look at the goddamn monkey cage with them. If you are the one looking at the monkey cage, ask your buddy what they want to do next, and when they want to feed the giraffe, help them find a quarter for the little food dispenser. Be a good buddy, and if your buddy isn't a good one too, tell the teacher and ask for a new one.

This isn't fucking rocket science, people.
