|BFF:||Grandmother I need to talk to you|
|Grandma:||[concerned voice] What? What is it? Are you sick?|
|BFF:||No, no. Grandma. I'm gay.|
|BFF:||I'm gay Grandma. I have a girlfriend now.|
|Grandma:||[relieved voice] Oh honey, is that all? I thought you had cancer. Anytime someone needs to tell me something they are sick. Who's your girlfriend, when is her birthday? I'll bake her a pie.|

-My dad. I’m 24, and asked if you ever shake the feeling of not being an adult, and this was his response. Probably the most comforting thing he could have said.
Your dad is damn right.
You never get to the point where you think “I am the adult”, but you do get to the point where you think “I’ve dealt with this before.” The older you get, the higher and higher the percentage is of things you’ve already been through. Have you ever changed a tire? Had a flat tire? Someday, you might, and the next time it happens, you’ll know what to do, since you’ve already done it.
Fucking compliment someone. Cause it takes three damn seconds and makes their whole 24 hours better. Just do it ok.
