I maybe try and process my own emotions on this stuff publicly a bunch because I was a pissy kid who was terrible at speaking about my own emotions until I stopped and even if awkwardly talking about it out loud is still better than just filing it away in my brain maybe
Relationships Show more
I think that the labels attached to people aren’t as important, i feel like some folk would think some of my relationships are closer to partner that I would otherwise say, more so that being able to be affectionate with people that you aren’t explicitly dating is a good thing

I’m kinda glad that I’ve made peace with the idea of relationships being a sliding scale and it being ok to love someone, though not be in love with them, and still have a positive and healthy relationship
@chosafine from my own personal experience especially with minority families parents do *not* often think there is value in doing creative stuff (compared to studying for a tech qualification, or just doing a "proper job").
Maybe times have changed slightly, but I'm not entirely sure thats the case, given the demographics of who seems to get social media fame (which isn't even really a sustainable career any more than "old style" media was by the 1990s)
@chosafine OK this is perhaps "chapeau de tinfoil" thinking, but I sometimes wonder if the media deliberately want to play down the "bad news" as their entire industry is cannibalising itself; but there is still a remnant market to keep young people chasing their dreams of celebrity from sellers of AV equipment, University/college courses etc..
Also a lot of these social media "stars" seem to be middle class kids who still live with/close to supportive parents >>
My problem with the you tuber burnout stories is that no one ever mentions that these are people who got a fuck ton of money from ads and have a cushion so they can take a break
I’d rather the stories be focused on people who are burnt out but can’t take a break because rent, it’s wrong to forget about them
also yeah go listen to Episode 73, its good
you get choice quotes like
@chosafine saying "terminals are really old"
