New read! (:
This transition back to Ohio has been the hardest and most depressing move of my life…I had to leave the place that felt like the only home I have ever had, leave the woman I love to salvage our friendship, and leave behind the kitties and basically my happiness. I’ve always been good at picking myself right back up, but this time it’s much harder…I miss her, and I feel really depressed unless I surround myself with friends or just even text my friends. I know it’s wrong to rely on them, but I can’t do this alone. I have always been the one to pick everyone else up, yet it’s just so hard for me to pick myself up again, even though I know this is for the best, and yes it will get better and I am improving myself already. If anyone has any advice or wants to talk, my ask box never closes. I’m sorry followers, I just needed to get that out there.
The study found that people hesitated longer to shoot an armed white target (and they were more likely to accidentally not shoot).
