Flabbergasted at the gif of George Bush doing this ice-water challenge and people reblogging it as if he’s some cute silly grandpa. In fact, after browsing his name on tumblr, that seems to be the main consensus.
Please stop and have a think.
Hypervigilance makes sense as a survival strategy. After our brain has perceived a life-endangering situation and gone into fight or flight, then some people’s brains will be on the alert for more situations that could also be threatening. If the type of trauma you experienced was abuse or assault, then you were hurt by a person or people. That’s obviously different than being bitten by a snake or in a car accident. And when we know our abuser, there is a breach of trust and emotional harm inherent in the assault.
So now when we find we’re getting close to someone, we start getting anxious. We look for signs we’re about to be betrayed or hurt. We get paranoid about someone’s tone or interval in responding to our texts. We’re anticipating the worst and unconsciously looking for signs that we’re right.”
I have a habit of avoiding watching a thing if I have a certain ship and then other characters are introduced as a way to keep the characters in the ship together. I really want to watch Free! season 2, but grow rather tired of the baiting. I have this problem with a lot of shows, actually. Probably why I’m not much into watching stuff anymore. After a while you get sick of being stretched so thin over a possibility which remains ambiguous/ wishy-washy at best.
Sometimes one wishes to be indulged. Loving, non-abusive, non-manipulative ships, for my part.
