Have you ever felt trap in a horrible greedy family? If so how did you deal with all the complaining, selfishness, and lies etc

Ah, I get the feeling you’re asking this because you are feeling it in your own life. I’m afraid I can’t draw much from personal experience. Ma and Pa may have been a bit selfish, and liars to a certain extent with both of their jobs, but I for one never felt trapped there. I had Stanley, for starters. I did feel trapped in that town, mostly because I felt I could go to bigger places, but it didn’t have to do with my family. 

I suppose I would say that you don’t have to feel obligated to have a relationship with your family if they aren’t kind to you. If they’re as truly awful to you, wait a few years, save up your money, and work to become independent. Perhaps having more space to yourself will improve the relationship. If they continue to treat you poorly, strive to be at a place where you can cut them off. You must demand respect for yourself, even from your family. And even if they are your family, they have to know that toxic people aren’t welcome in your life.

How do I improve my level of cognitive empathy in myself?

Hi love, I’m so sorry for the late response!

First I want to start of by saying that it’s good that you want to improve yourself and try to be more empathetic. That’s very admirable!

I think one way to be more empathetic is to try and picture yourself in that person’s shoes. Imagine how you’d feel if you were in their situation and going through what they are going through. Or try to relate what’s happening to them to something similar that happened to you and remember how you felt.

Another thing that might help you be more empathetic is by going out of your way to help others. Maybe join a charity or non-profit organization that dedicates their time to helping those in need. Or try volunteering at a hospital or homeless shelter: this might really open your eyes and help you see things from others perspectives. Or even just go out of your way to be helpful to the people in your life. It doesn’t always have to be something big: sometimes the most meaningful acts of kindness are small ones! Like do the dishes without your mom asking or go out of your way to help a stranger with their grocery bags.

1: Start out by drawing from life!! Take your lil sketch book with you and draw the scenery around you or objects around you.  You can always set up little still lives and draw that, or you can go take figure drawing classes to learn about human anatomy and poses! Drawing from life is real important and it always lends itself to drawing cartoons and more stylistic things after. Learn the rules, and then you can break them with style! Also, keep drawing! When you begin at something, you are always going to suck (and this goes for anything!) Just keep practicing and pushing and you’ll see yourself improve over time.

2: Aaaa thank you so much! I’m glad you liked it so much!

3: My friend made the game itself using Ren’py, which is a game engine for visual novels. I made the art using Photoshop (and thank you for the compliment!)
