guys sometimes i pretend that i am a misanthropic aloof asshole for laughs but i am all talk, and when it come down to it i usually try to be fairly gentle with other people’s feelings bc frankly I am a Sensitive Plant a lot of the time, and it doesn’t seem fair to dish out anything i couldn’t take. and basically i just find it rly hard to ever say anything that might upset the other person? it’s a hard thing to do
but there is probably no kind or gentle way to say to my roommate, “you have not washed your bath towel in the entire year that we have lived together, and when I go into the bathroom I can SMELL it, the smell of bacteria and dead skin cells is taking over our apartment. u need to wash your towel, or better u need to burn it because it has become hazardous waste, and u need to buy a new towel and wash that one frequently.”
so that’s gonna be real awkward, but i think it is a conversation that needs to be had BECAUSE OUR BATHROOM SMELLS LIKE A DEAD ANIMAL. But like - i have been trying to psych myself up to have this conversation for like a month and i can’t do it. i just - urgh.
