shard of glass stuck in foot dysphoria.
Like yeah, there's ways to reduce thinking about the shard of glass stuck in your foot, but how upset the shard of glass in your foot is making you act isn't causing there to be a shard of glass in your foot. coping with the shard of glass is always going to be about minimizing on going pain, when removing the glass is what will actually allow healing to start.
have you considered maybe trying to just be a window?
@mxsiege sometimes I'm a door or a potted plant
@mxsiege I can also vouch for not letting the shard just grow over and then burst out through the skin fifteen years later leaving you going what the absolute fuck is this where did this bullshit come from.
this is a great metaphor and i wish i had it two years ago but i'm glad to know it now
