we-need-to-be-friends

Ah, I guess we’re getting a little reminder of just who Lapis is. It’s only been, what, 23 episodes since she’s even been mentioned? Stands to reason that we’d need a refresher course on our blue friend. 

I wonder what she’s been up to since leaving us behind? I wonder if she made it home or not, and what everyone thought when she unexpectedly showed up. Clearly we’re either getting a message from her or about her, so I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

Have you ever wondered why you need true friends or friends in general considering that you're an introvert and you're comfortable being alone?

Why do we need friends?

1. Human needs/well-being

Humans are innately social animals. It’s built in our DNA that socializing increases our psychological and physiological well-being.

Social isolation and loneliness messes up the immune response, increase risk of heart diseases even years after isolation, increase risk of dementia, increase suicide rates, decrease lifespan (there are so many studies on this, seriously).

How much socializing you need might depends on how extraverted/introverted you are, but no one can be completely isolated and stay sane or healthy.

2. Enabling growth

The more we interact with other people, the more we learn about knowledge, experiences, and point of views they have that are different from us. Understanding these differences allow us to expand our horizon and become more open-minded.

Good friends will influence your personal and career growth in a positive way. They can encourage you to do new things outside of your comfort zone that help you grow as a person.

3. Increasing opportunities

Friends will tell you about opportunities that you wouldn’t have known otherwise. I wouldn’t have gotten 3 of my dream jobs (acting in musical theater, performing in live concerts with a band, and will be teaching at a university soon) if I didn’t have friends who told me about the openings. The more people you know, the more opportunities will come your way.

4. True support

I’m very selective of my friends and whom I can trust. I think it’s amazing that we have the power to choose our own friends, as opposed to people we’re stuck with by obligation or circumstance (e.g. family, classmates, coworkers). For me, true friends have a much deeper connection. They’re the people you can talk to about anything and trust to be there when you need someone the most. This level of friendship takes time to develop and prove itself, but it’s worth it and won’t happen unless you make an effort.

morally grey “doesnt it make sense to get rid of all the humans on this island because then there would be zero conflict ever since there are only my synths now” or perhaps teaming up with faraday in a more “lets ‘help’ the humans with these fog condensers, but really in secret the machines are doing more hurt than help, oh no, now everyone suddenly has radiation poisoning?? :(( we’ll do our best to help our friends in need”

Somebody go tell this kid we need to be friends already

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
