“It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything. But in real life, you can’t avoid doing things. We have to earn a living, do our taxes, have difficult conversations sometimes. Human life requires confronting uncertainty and risk, so pressure mounts. Procrastination gives a person a temporary hit of relief from this pressure of “having to do” things, which is a self-rewarding behavior. So it continues and becomes the normal way to respond to these pressures. Particularly prone to serious procrastination problems are children who grew up with unusually high expectations placed on them. Their older siblings may have been high achievers, leaving big shoes to fill, or their parents may have had neurotic and inhuman expectations of their own, or else they exhibited exceptional talents early on, and thereafter “average” performances were met with concern and suspicion from parents and teachers.”

wow the accuracy of this is surprising. I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror at one part and yeah this.
oh hey sorrynotsorry for the non-Korra-related posts.

like seriously please tell me why I thought that would make me feel great.
this has been a non-korra-related personal whining session.

I really want to ship Makorra. I’m supposed to ship Makorra. I should ship Makorra.
But I can’t ship Makorra, I can’t. I don’t know why. I mean, I love Korra—she’s one of my favorite Avatar characters yet! But when Mako kissed her back, all I could think is “you’re fucking up you’re fucking up fucking Asami don’t kiss Korra why”. It’s funny, because I see all the time that fans relate to Korra and love her badass nature and strength. But I think that that’s precisely the reason why I can’t ship her with Mako. I don’t relate to Korra. I’m probably more like Asami: polite, nice, reasonable, girly. And I’ve experienced my fair share of guys going off with the sassy athletic girl.
And even if I wasn’t like Asami…thinking about one girl when you’re with another ain’t cool, man. At least stay single while you figure things out.
But on a positive note, I ship Tahno with everything.
