this is what i have to deal with at collin's

“I always think that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes it takes knowing what you don’t want to know what you do want, meeting the wrong person to know what the right person would be like. And that’s life. You have to go through these things to find the right person to find your right path in life. It’s not the decision that defines who you are, it’s how you deal with them, the repercussions and how you come out of that. You learn different things about yourself by looking at the people that you choose to surround yourself with, relationships and friends. And I think you can only attract the right people when you know who you are. It’s like they say you accept the love you think you deserve. Until you know what you want and who you are the right people won’t be attracted to you.”

anonymous asked:

how do you handle a long distance relationship? i get so frustrated with mine and it makes me so happy to see someone who's making it work!

it’s definitely hard, and i am not totally sure i would be able to deal with it under different circumstances than the ones i am in!
collin and i are soulmates. we are bound together by a lot of really powerful circumstances, and we also love each other more than anything else in the world. that being said, sometimes love alone is not enough to deal with a long distance relationship effectively.
so! there are a few things i have found that are making this whole experience easier.
1. having a plan for the future in place is really helpful. collin will be moving back to me at the end of the summer and we will be getting an apartment together and moving our relationship forward in a lot of ways. it is SO helpful to know that this distance has an end date, and to be able to know what we are putting in the work for.
2. i spend a lot of time observing my own emotions. i sometimes feel lonely or sad or restless, but before i act on any of these feelings i always ask myself if the reaction will help me reach my end goal. so if i am having a bad day and i respond to that by freezing out collin and moping, that is not helping strengthen our relationship in any way, shape, or form. so i try to find more appropriate ways to react.
3. communication is so important!!! you need to be able to say to your partner “i am having a hard time today” and you need to be able to expect that they will respond kindly and without any type of emotional punishment or manipulation. you also need to be able to express positive emotions to your partner to balance the sad and hard things out!

there is lots of stuff. but having plans, working on yourself, and communicating effectively are the big ones.

How hard is it to find the right guy? “I always think that everything happens for a reason.

Finally got my photo op back from Minncon.

While I don’t regret going to minncon, both because I got to meet elocinmuse and because it would have been harder dealing with everything that happened if I hadn’t been there, I don’t know if I’ve ever had my blood run as so suddenly cold as it did when Richard came out on stage to give the announcement about what had happened. All morning, I just had this feeling of wrongness in my stomach that I didn’t understand, and when Richard made the announcement I just kept waiting and waiting for a punchline that never came, because it just wasn’t possible.

I remember seeing him the first time on Saturday and barely making it out of the room before spending the next half hour crying into my friend’s shoulder. Because you’re never prepared to see something like that to happen to someone that you care about. Especially when the person is such a champion of kindness. 

Someone suggested this pose for my op on sunday, and I had enough of a pre-established rapport with him to feel comfortable asking for this as a pose, but also said I had an alternate idea if he felt in any way uncomfortable with the idea, which he said he didn’t. So this is for all yalls, who I know wished they could be there and have done the same. 

Sir, you are so greatly and dearly loved by so many, and I know that I and so many others are so very grateful that you’re ok and have recovered so quickly, and that you haven’t let this affect the amazing way that you look at the world. 

Okay, in honor of #mishamonday, I just wanted to put down what I’ve been thinking this weekend and especially yesterday. I just think that Misha putting on the gishwhes takes tumblr is just an amazing thing in and of itself, but the fact that he put it on during a convention weekend is mind blowing to me. I’m sure that he had to deal with how many different schedules trying to line everything up but he could have said, “No, I have a convention going on” (which I’m sure is exhausting by itself) or “okay, I’ll skip this convention”. Just the thought that he and his team put into it and the prizes they gathered for the winners is just amazing.

And then, when a tragedy, that many people probably ignored and are still ignoring as best as they can, struck Misha took the game that took i don’t know how many months to plan and turned it into about giving love. About nominating someone else for getting a prize, not about winning a prize yourself. He could have just postponed the games for a couple hours and then kept going with it as planned but he didn’t. Instead he turned it into something he knows the world desperately needs: giving love to others.

I’m sure many of you are reading this going “Yeah, okay, Molly, we get it. We were there,” but I just needed to get this into words because like I said before: this is why I love Misha, this is why many of us love Misha. I thought I couldn’t look up to him any more than I already do, but here I am, just in awe of who he is and how he brings so much light into the world.

In case you need it today

Here’s some Misha and a kitten (well, a cat):

And here’s Misha claiming he’s not a kitten:

And here is Misha’s face photoshopped onto a kitten:

Because everyone needs Misha and kittens if they’re having a bad day.

(Shout out to @mishamuffin, cuz I heard she was having a bad day.)

Now, onto something completely different:

Misha dealing with someone dressed like a kitten…sort of…

Supernatural JIBCON7 Misha Collins

AMisha answering a fan’s question regarding Castiel’s emotional health:  Cas needs some time away from dealing with things like the darkness and the apocalypse and stuff like that because its extremely stressful, yeah the apocalypse causes a lot of anxiety. i think Cas needs for his emotional healing to take place what he isn’t going to get a vacation. They don’t do a lot of vacations on supernatural have you noticed that. why is that (sic) we should do a whole vacation season. what if season 12 is like its all shot in Hawaii and the Bahamas (sic) that would be great while giving him a massage maybe…

*imitating Sam* you are important, we love you, you are important Cas…more oil…is that too much pressure is it okay…*imitating Castiel* it’s fine, Sam just.. And then everybody would be like You are queer baiting the fans. No no, it’s just a simple massage scene for his emotional health, i can’t believe you are going to read that into it. I am gonna get shit for that, yeah. Damn it!


Fan:

 Do you feel the influence of Cas on your life or do you feel like you lead two lives like castiel is an angel and you are a human obviously…unfortunately (sic)


Misha: If i am at home and the kids are making a mess or something i will snap my fingers or go like this to try to whatever i don’t know try to stop or explode one of them and it doesn’t work. oh that’s right i am not i am not Castiel or you know, if one of the kids is sick or something i will just touch them on the forehead like that and nothing happens its just frustrating i try to teleport you know and that doesn’t work. (sic)

No is the answer if i am honest with you i don’t forget that i am not an angel very often but its is interesting for me to observe that i meet people who kind of confuse me with Castiel like they start to think that i am an angel or that i can heal people or things like that which i mean i do have powers of healing…


Fan: Which version of Cas has been your favorite and which one the most challenging


Misha: my favorite was playing Misha in the french mistake (sic) everyone was doing a parody of themselves there was a tiny bit of truth in each of the character like Jared has a whole herd of alpacas, its interesting if i am in a foreign country a small portion of people think i am serious all the time and people right now are going oh Misha said Jared and Gen really have a herd of alpacas which is true he does (sic)

I did my best to portray myself as the quintessential doucebag actor and my manager saw the episode and he’s like it was so great to finally see you play yourself so i fired him

Misha in response to a fan: Is that not the answer you were looking for She looks super disappointed I am not going to another Misha panel. fucking asshole!

Fan: How do you feel having Rob on set

Misha: I love having Rob back because Jared and Jensen harass him when we are on set instead of me and its so nice we were shooting a scene we were all there and then it was time for Rob’s closeup camera was on his face he had a big important scene for him and Jared just put his hand on Rob’s thigh (sic) and I was laughing I was just enjoying it happening to somebody else but I knew what he was going through so I put my hand on his thigh too as sign of support just to show solidarity with him because I knew he was going through a lot.

Fan: If your kids ever watched you play an angel

Misha: The kids have seen little dolls of me they have seen drawings of me they have seen tiny tiny clips caught on screen but I don’t let them watch supernatural because I think they are already pre-disposed to be serial killers but west came to a convention recently…and it was fun for me to have him there by the got to see something that is not good for a kid which is…

*imitating fans* Oh my god oh my god its Misha oh my god I love you so much fake sobbing I love you,  so and for him he’s like what the fuck is going on looking around surprised who are all these other women who my dad is having a relationship with so yeah every once in a while around the house Castiel’s shirts (sic) we would get gifts stuff like that which I typically don’t wear outside the house which would make me look a little egoistical so I just wear them in the home but he would pick up a shirt and wear it on… Castiel shirt *imitates West* I am Castiel everybody loves me* …no they don’t but although they do like yesterday when I was away…they were in Castiel’s clothes which is kind of sad because they are using a fictitious character I play as a surrogate for their real father who has clearly abandoned them I do think that’s probably something that will be  talked about with a therapist at some future

I’m really angry about this.

Wow, I can’t believe someone assaulted Misha. It’s funny, how celebrities affect us. I always wondered what it would be like if one of the few celebrities I admired was hurt, but I didn’t think it’d actually happen, and in such a violent way. I hope Misha is okay and that he’s doing whatever he can to deal with this. He’s so strong and cares so much, and has been through so much to get where he is. I don’t have a twitter, but everyone be sure to send their love his way. He may be acting strong and saying that he doesn’t want to disappoint anyone, but this stuff can really mess with a person. Even if it’s through a single tweet, we should all tell him how much we love and appreciate him.
