@spiritbathbomb also asked for prompt 25 “I’ve never felt this way before… and to be honest, it scares the living shit out of me.” with Vegeta/Yamcha (and honestly how was I supposed to say no to that rarest of pairs, also it got way too long and out of hand so UNDER A CUT IT GOES)
Yamcha had been completely and totally fine with his usual relationship with Vegeta, which was a tentative, awkward friendship, one that generally involved a lot of yelling and snark. Some days, Yamcha was pretty sure that the only reason he was still breathing was because he was friends with Bulma, and if Vegeta wanted to keep relying on her for free food and use of the gravity chamber, he had to keep himself from killing her friends if they annoyed him.
Or, at least, that was how their relationship started.
Right now, it’s just me and you. We’re all stressed, overwhelmed, feeling anxious about things and especially because we spend so much time on the Internet. We’re having all of these conversations in our mind, especially when you’re thinking about oh, drama happening in school, on Facebook, or oh, drama happening with my favourite fandom on Twitter or oh, I saw this argument. There’s just a lot of noise in your head, we are reading all of these imaginary conversations from the Internet. And before the Internet, I don’t think this happened, because people had real human interactions or watched TV but now because so much of our communication is reading text and voices in our heads, we have this constant noise in our minds and meditating is something very good where you take a moment to just be quiet. Still. Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. Try as hard as possible to empty your mind of all that shouting, of all the imagining, of all the people typing, and talking on the Internet. Like forget what’s trending. Forget what is the thing that’s happening that you need to talk about because everyone is talking about it. And just be like ‘it’s just me, I’m alone, there’s nobody in my head’. Try to connect to the physical world, if there’s no one in the same room as you, then be like 'I’m just a person, alone in a room’. Think about what you’re touching, what’s touching you. Just breathe in and out. And if you do that for like ten minutes you’ll be like way more relaxed and stuff. It’s something I should do more often but I don’t, so I just freak out all the time.
