After using acrylics for so long. I’ve started to kind of hate them so I’ve decided to give oil paints a try.
Question for oil painters: Any tips for someone who’s never used them?
My dad just got out of the hospital on Monday and now he’s back in. He barely looks and acts like himself and the doctors aren’t sure what’s going on. I know I have to be there for my mom and I wanna be there for her but I don’t know what to do. I hate crying in front of people and I don’t know how to act when other people are crying. I just wanna get away and run from it all. I don’t know how to tell him everything’s gonna be fine when I have no idea if it will be. I’m holding everything in cause I don’t know how to open up to people. My friends keep telling me to call them if I need anything and I just wanna be held and consoled but I don’t know how to let people do that to me. I see people who can so easily let everything they’re holding inside out and it scares me to even think about doing that. I feel like I’m becoming a burden and putting my problems on other people and I hate doing that.
How do you open up to people and let them help you?
Is it a bad idea to ask someone to hangout via text message if trying to ask them in person hasn’t worked out?
I’ve had a crush on someone I work with for quite awhile and I kinda thought they might be interested in me to. If you read my post about crushes you’d know that I’m pretty bad at navigating situations like this. I tend to make myself think they aren’t interested when they are. I’m pretty sure my coworker is interested in me and I’ve been trying to figure out a way to move things forward but I feel like were in an extreme case of Mamihlapinatapei, the only word I can think to describe it. I really want us to start as friends but we barely talk and are rarely able to hang out at work. When I do have an opportunity I always miss it cause my nerves get in the way
Any advice on asking someone out, especially on how to overcome the nerves?
