but it's hard

I’m sorry I keep on making fun of these guys but here’s a personality swap to add fuel to the fire

you can’t “fix” someone who is mentally ill just to eradicate parts of them that inconvenience you.  help them by accommodating them, being patient and understanding that some things can’t be cured by exposure or basic therapy.  yes, it’s inconvenient and sometimes it downright sucks, but if you love someone don’t judge them while they do what they need to do to work it out on their own time, however they need to do it, whenever they are ready to do it.  if they reach out to you, take their hand and offer guidance, but unless you’re an expert do not try to police their mental health.  just love them and trust that if they could be “fixed” they would be, in a second, for you and for themselves.

XY&Z036′s preview, in which Manon’s smile is back… for some reason… and without Hari-san…

Centipeetle: *writes her name in Gem (because of course she does, why would she write in English) and proudly shows it to Steven*

Steven: *assumes its just a doodle because he can’t read Gem*

Me with my shitty handwriting: “I can relate.”

Also me: “Dammit, Pearl, what IS her name?”
