You can’t trust your feelings

Although we would all like to trust our feelings, they are not a good guide for the ways things really are. They are often fickle and irrational – and not an accurate measure of reality. As you’ve probably discovered:

1. Feelings vary depending on our health. If we’re sick we often feel despondent and blah.

2. Feelings vary depending on our hormones – which is why doctors recognize and treat PMS.

3. Feelings vary depending on events and the changing circumstances of our life. If things are going wrong, or we’re highly stressed, we feel inadequate and overwhelmed.

4. Feelings are affected by relationships. If we fall in love we feel happy and elated; if a relationship breaks up we feel rejected and depressed.

5. Feelings vary depending on the weather. If it’s sunny we feel happy and optimistic; if it’s cloudy and grey, we feel morose and negative.

6. Feelings can depend on the way we’re being treated. If someone in a store is rude to us, we may react with anger, or even feel ashamed.

7. Feelings are affected by our actions at the time. If we do something kind we feel good about ourselves; and if we’ve hurt someone’s feelings we may feel some regret.

So don’t react and respond based on feelings alone. Always use your mind as well – and check your thoughts are accurate.

I’m looking out at 45000 people who have an individual set of hopes, dreams, fears and wishes. Every single person here has something they’re afraid of or something they’re trying to block out in their mind, whether it’s somebody who 5 years ago told you, you aren’t cool, or that you were annoying, or they didn’t invite you go something, or somebody you loved who turned around one day and changed their mind and said, “I don’t wanna be with you anymore,” and you can’t get it out of your head. Or maybe it’s just the voice in your own head saying, like, “You don’t look awesome today.” And it’s absolutely… it’s absolutely extraordinary that we’re all walking around with these fears and with these insecurities.

And what I find the most extraordinary is that every single person in here decided today, “I’m not going to let my mistakes or insecurities keep me from going to a concert and dancing all night and having the best time ever.” I am proud of you for that.

Because the thing about mistakes, that people will tell you all the time, is that the fact is that a lot of the clichés are true. You cannot live your life without making mistakes. The only thing you can control is how you handle it afterward. The only thing you can do is make sure your mistakes are ones you will never make again, that your lessons are lessons you have learned and you will not repeat. No one can blame you for making those mistakes because you’re taking risks. The only time your mistakes will take you down a notch is if you become your behaviour pattern, and we don’t learn from them and we let them become our identity.

But I don’t think… I don’t think you’re going to do that. I don’t think that you’re going to let your mistakes be ghosts that haunt you. Because you’re here tonight, aren’t you? And so we’re going to go out and make the rest of the mistakes we’re going to make for the rest of our lives. And we’re going to hope that we don’t make too many of the same ones. And, um, we’re not going to be defined by them. And we’re going to remember tonight and we’re going to be more kind to ourselves, aren’t we, Vancouver?

Living your life making mistakes does not make you damaged or tarnished or anything like that. I think they make you wiser and they make you smarter and stronger. And in the end, you become the opposite of tarnished. And I think making mistakes and learning from them makes you clean.

i got a lil sappy

Ok I’m always a sassy ball of shit but I’ve never taken the time to actually thank you guys for being so amazing, supportive, and hilarious. This blog would be nothing without your submissions (i.e. your horrible experiences lol) and I’m so happy that we could take a shared experience and make it into something so big. I was just looking at the follower count and I was like, “Wow. I was feeling really angsty about boys one day and thought “maybe I’m not alone let’s see what happens” and then 220,000 (and Aziz Ansari what the poop???) of you were like “bruh same” and ugh oh my god I’m gonna cry. 

I complain all the time about how many messages we get (over 24k right now) but most of that is just super nice, super sweet messages from you guys that make us smile like goofs. We only ever post the negative ones because comedy and w/e but it just makes everything really negative so I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for keeping this blog running, for sharing it, for laughing/crying over it. Many hearts and much love 2 u <3 

Imagine Person A of you OTP is cursed that all the food they lift to their mouth tastes horrible, and they fall in love with person B, only to find out that Person B is a renowned cook.

Bonus- person B figures out how to bypass the curse by simply lifting the food to Person A’s mouth themselves. A is overjoyed to finally be able to appreciate Person B’s work.
