My friend’s misprinted fortune is kinda dark.
I’m in so much pain and the only painkillers I have that sort of work are making me so drowsy so I’m at work still in pain anyway but also nearly falling asleep lol help. I had a coffee and it did nothing, but more than 1 coffee in a day gives me anxiety so maybe that’s a bad path to go down

well word got out to my housemate allan that I’d purchased a one direction keyring because he just burst into my room and knocked all my stuff over and threw my shit on the floor exclaiming “not in this house!!!!”
this is actually a really difficult question! on the one hand I wanna be like ‘be open to meeting new people, put yourself out there, make the first move and try new situations’ and on the other hand I’m like ‘be selective about who you let in, quality over quantity, don’t settle for less than what you deserve, be cautious at first’. I’ve learned so much about friendships over the past couple of years but everything I’ve learned has left me further away from clarity than ever
I’m really lucky to have great friends at the moment but I’ve also had my share of bad friendships. probably my best advice is to be genuine in your friendships. if you meet someone and you think they’re cool and you wanna hang out, tell them! approach people and don’t be afraid to show your interest in them. at the same time, be honest with yourself about the kinds of people you want around you and the way you want your friendships to work. don’t tolerate mean, deceitful or hurtful behaviour and don’t push a friendship that you’re not feeling. tell your friends the truth and make known that you expect the truth from them, too. maybe that sounds pretty intense but one of the best things I’ve read about friendships is that you should treat them like you treat your relationships; take the relationship seriously and invest deeply in your future together. it’s not exactly a get rich quick approach but I think it’s the best way to build strong and meaningful friendships
the other thing is encourage all your friends to get to know each other and become friends with each other!!! it’s like being a match maker for your friends. over the past 5 months or so, my 3 closest friends have all become friends with each other and it’s been so great for all of us. if you have plans to get lunch with one of your friends, ask if it’s ok to bring one of your other friends along too. then tell your other friend to bring someone too, you know? most people want the exact same thing you do and would be stoked to have the opportunity to meet a couple of new people in a non threatening scenario.
hopefully that is sort of ok advice!!!

Rly tho we just celebrated the 2nd birthday of a group that is consistently learning, educating and helping however we can (donation drives for the homeless and underprivileged, assisting people with urgent need for safe accommodation, paying the collection fee of pets taken from homeless owners, and a lil festival named GTTF which has thus far raised over $5000 for SOS Womens Services).
Tease and judge what you have seen, heard, or made up for your own amusement but this is a family of powerful life changers, world changers and just such good friends. The things you mock are nothing in comparison to that.
