What brings you comfort?


#1

When times are tough or difficult, what never fails to bring you comfort or something to take your mind away from your trials? Personally when I go through difficult times I turn to my books. Mainly biographies about Kennedy, but also more about the Greeks and the Irish. I also love listening to speeches given by JFK and RFK because they take me to another time and another state of mind.

Friends I can talk to whenever. Its so simple but its not to be taken for granted.


#3

I have many friends with about two close groups with different personalities on both sides. But I can really one talk to one, Gavin. But even then, it still doesn’t do much for me.


#4

I only have one friend that I feel like I can actually freely talk to, having someone like that is probably rare. Even some of my best friends I just cant do that with.


#5

Same here. Even Gavin, who is more like a brother to me than the one of my blood, its still hard to talk about those things and it doesn’t do the trick.


#6

Music also does it for me if I listen to music that fits my mood.


#7

Aye. Really like the soundtracks from my favorite films/TV shows and other playlists.


#8

I was originally going to say nothing, but my family brings me comfort. Especially my brother. Even though we fight a lot, he’s my best friend. I tell him stuff that I wouldn’t tell anyone else. If I’m down, he always finds a way to make me laugh, and for that I’ll always be grateful.

I mean I appreciate them, but they don’t bring me any comfort.

You’re a hamster though, it would be like squeezing a stress ball because your cheeks are so chubby.
