Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide.

Donald Winnicott  (via unmaiden)

…I am so angry sometimes…and it’s real soothing to mask that with humor. Just cover all the feelings with jokes. Just joke it up. Communicate and hide.

He was using it for his happy emotion. I had to stop him, and explain that I get it. I get making it funny. But that story wasn’t just the emotion happy, it was happy and sad and angry. And he picked out a different story.

The 5 Love Languages (Gary Chapman)

If you value communication, affection, positive support, and intimacy in your relationships, this is a great place to start. No matter the type of relationship, whether intimate partner, parent/child, friend, we all give and receive love in primary ways. Understanding how YOU give and receive love, and how the other person gives and receives love can be a vital component to support your relationship. In many ways it can make things far easier, as you aren’t spinning your wheels wasting time, effort, or money giving love in the way they don’t seem to appreciate.
