I wonder if Butch Flowers and Carolina both showed up to Project Freelancer with teal/aqua armor and then glared at each other like, “Well, one of us is going to have to change.” So they wrestled for it and Carolina won, but years later when Flowers gets assigned to Blood Gulch, he’s all, "No one’s going to stop me now."
Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.
