Aw boo. Have you tried hitting it?

That's how things were for a long time. But they are a little more complicated than that, though that's part of it. There are a lot of differences this time. He was fine until he went back to his hometown, and he allowed himself to sink into his old ways of thinking. Now he's snapped out of it and has realized how "transparent" and kind of childish his attitude had been. This is all according to him of course. He said that he didn't want to admit it, but all his life he's been so caught up in being afraid to be wrong, that he forgot he could be wrong. Thankfully I'm not at all the only force in his life helping him grow. His friends, roommates, philosophy class and so on seem to be helping him recognize his flaws and how to resolve them.

Yeah sure, he may stumble here and there, but I'm pretty confident he'll get better no matter what. What I'm concerned about is a lot of the other problems which have still not been talked about along with that whole event and the possibility of more explosions which are weighing down my expectations. I just don't know if he can handle a relationship right now, and I think he needs time alone. But, I'm giving him the opportunity to surprise me more. He knows how thin the sheet he's standing on is, and now that he's realized his actions do have an effect on other people, and that he matters to everyone a lot more than he kept telling himself he did, he seems to be returning back to the Shayne I originally met.

You were right about him embellishing his experience in the hospital. He had to meet with two psychologists, which ended up being good for him. He really wasn't okay. And he said I did the right thing, which was relieving.

>>9903
Yeah! I'm rough! I'm tough! I play hard mode!

He's a real goofball, that kid. That 30 year old kid.

Well, may he backslide for years to come...

Aww. But... the illusion!

I forget, what are you studying in colleg right now?

I have! it's dumb!

Ah. Yeah. That seems pretty tough.
I suppose at least it seems like steps are being taken. Good that the dialogue is there. Though of course "snapping out" also means there's a chance of snapping back in.

And yeah, like I said before, a break might be in the best interests of both of you. Bit of time to recollect your thoughts and feelings, seeing how both of you behave after some time apart, and working things out there.
Though I would say that hopefully it will be on good terms, even if you aren't in a relationship. Can always just be acquaintances.

Haha! Look at me, noticing little details and being right!
But yeah, it's good that it was taken care of

>>9911
It doesn't feel tough for me, but I guess that's part of the problem. I don't know if it's fair for this relationship to exist, where I'm already at a good place and don't have to put as much effort into the relationship in order to meet halfway and enjoy it, while he's struggling to keep up and has a lot more schoolwork and stress to deal with at the moment. A relationship ought to be give and take, and the problem is that I'm not sure if he's in a position to be "giving" to anyone but himself. But well, this will be a learning experience regardless of what happens. I think it's worth trying if only for him to recognize his limits, if things don't work out.

Still, things are not looking so bad. And the whole snapping back thing I think is avoidable as long as he stays out of his hometown. I've been out of my horrible traumas for a few years now. He's still quite fresh from the oven, so he has to adjust to not living in abuse. Which he is doing.

Originally I broke up with him. He was distraught, but not in an explosive, unreasonable way. He went to walk by himself for half an hour and came back with a lot of thoughts. He made a good case for giving it one more shot. I suggested a break. It was a little too hard for me to leave it on a cliffhanger like that, I guess I can't do breaks. So we're going halfway with that, at the moment. Maybe a day each week with each other, but most of the time on our own. Being at home more is definitely helping me recollect my identity. And it's helping him reflect in a positive way, without distractions. We'll see what happens.

>>9912
I still am in the habit of thinking that kind of stuff. "Oh it'd be cool to hang out with them!" But then I remember I'm trans. And like, 80% of people, even in the west, tend to be awkward and uncomfortable around trans people initially even if they're not against it. I figure hanging out with him would be like that. Pblttt.

My honest opinion is that you don't need passion to be able to enjoy a job. I certainly don't have passion or interest in what I do at my work, but it's still enjoyable. Sometimes, it's even fun! I think as humans we generally just like challenges and being around good people. Every career has that.

>And like, 80% of people, even in the west, tend to be awkward and uncomfortable around trans people initially even if they're not against it.

One of my friends came out as trans is that the right term here? a little while ago, I've only managed to meet them once since them and to be honest it was pretty awkward for me. It's difficult to really understand how you're meant to act, I try to act fairly neutrally around everyone but then that may come off of not recognizing them and cause offense. Doesn't help when you've known the person long enough to have formed an identity of them in your head and end up slipping up on pronouns on more than one occasion.

We haven't spoken much since then, I guess I messed it up pretty badly.

>>9913
Nah, I really doubt Vinny's like that. I mean as long as you're not up in his face, or anyone's really, about being trans then you're bound to have a good time. Talking outright about gender, sexuality, what have yous, it's not a topic that people are able to handle well enough, especially for those that don't want to say something mean by accident and be forced to tiptoe around the subject if they don't know how to handle it. I imagine Vinny's that kind of person. Nice guy, wants to just have fun, most likely wouldn't want to offend people.

yeah, I guess that's true. I did enjoy my time working at the ice cream store. Maybe I can find some more work in a hardware store or something.

I don't know. I had always said that part of being in love is giving. That it's never about yourself, and providing for your other. It was about giving it your all even if it was a net loss.
Though now I think it's about providing what the other needs, even if it means spending time apart, or perhaps drawing out understanding. And well you shouldn't forget to take as well, because it sure isn't sustainable, kinda parasitic otherwise.
I think it might be good for this half-break even. That even though the relationship is about being happy together, being in love is also about being content apart. Kinda like this developmental thing I remember from psychology. That poorly developed babies in terms of attachment will cry out when away from their mothers, but well-developed ones are still content when they leave.

Hey, hey, if it's about that whole misspoken pronouns thing with your old friend, that doesn't make you a bad person. It's hard to get used to change, if your friend had known you for that long, they'd have understood that as well.

I know you're not a bad person since you chose to respect their identity and tried to change and help them feel comfortable with themselves as best you can. A simple slip up here and there shouldn't hurt them that much if they'd realized you're trying.

But yeah, it's late, but at least know you're not as bad as you think you are.

Good night, Earthed.

>>9914
Yeah, I think it's the right term. I hear that a lot, that people are afraid of saying something wrong. I think trans people are generally considered really touchy types, which I think is mostly representative of the outraged types (not that it isn't justified in many cases), but still a bit of a misattribution. Historically a lot of humor has come from ridiculing gender norm breaking, even if it's not always obvious, and it has and still does hurt. I understand, however, that people are still getting used to the idea that breaking gender norms is a serious reality for some people. There are a lot of social habits which are... loaded, I guess. But people are just coming to realize that.

Me, I recognize when it's just a slip, when somebody truly does respect it, when a person is trying, or when a person doesn't consider it an issue (but still uses proper pronouns). It's hard to offend me. I think that people like me tend to keep to themselves though. I don't like to draw attention to it, as my goal is passing. I don't think it should be hidden away though, which is why I tend to be vocal about it and come upfront about it. I'm pretty tired of it being something people just don't talk about openly.

I wish I could help people relax around me, but I know I'm just one voice. So, the best I can do is not take it personally when they're awkward. I don't know if they're being timid due to fear of offending me, or being quiet because they don't "agree" with my existence. I prefer to give the benefit of the doubt...

I would like to think that people are generally okay with people screwing up if they're at least trying. It still is kinda like "eh" but you know, times are changing! People don't just evolve overnight into understanding. It takes exposure.

>>9915
Well, people have different definitions of "up in their face". For some, it's having nothing else to talk about, being needlessly confrontational, etc. For others, it's just... being whatever your gender is. Not that it matters, because I don't really need to say anything for people to automatically be uncomfortable on the basis that I'm trans. Oftentimes, people mention it before me because they have to seem supportive I guess. Which I appreciate, in an awkwardly cute sort of way.

But it's always in the background, until a good amount of time passes and they realize I'm just a person doing their own things with hobbies and stuff. For a while though, I'm just a big "TRANS" sign.

Hey, do whatever makes you happy!

>>9916
Mmm, well, I don't know if I agree. I used to think that way but I think there's more nuance to it than simply giving. It just doesn't work all the time to do that, especially when you and your partner are on unequal footing. I think to love another person properly, one really has to be able to love themselves equally. I think I have a fairly decent understanding of love. It's an invitation into the ego, where both of you become part of the others'. For mentally balanced people, this is a great, deep experience which raises one's understanding of themselves and the world. For unhealthy people, their ego can be a treacherous place to be, which leads to a lot of problems. Self-hatred or self-distancing becomes partner hatred and distancing. Destructive behaviour begins to include destroying the partner.

I have so much to learn and I'm waiting for the next big lesson. But I think I'm starting to get it. This is mostly observation, and only partly experience.

Anyway, I gotta go! I'll be doing my late night preps and eating. It's been a lovely talk, guys. I love you!!!
