a show is only as good as its filler episodes
and avatar: the last airbender was on a whole other level
this was what a filler episode SHOULD be, it may not have furthered the plot, but it did highlight the characters and deepen our understanding of them
I am literally crying again just seeing that gif
"One of the best pieces of advice I was ever given was at church, I asked to be prayed for for anxiety […] and he said “Well, you realize that you are more centered on yourself than you are on God?” And I know not everyone here believes in God and that’s okay but I do think that that is a pivotal piece of advice if you’re consumed by anxiety because you are consumed by yourself and you’re worried, “What do people think of me? Do people like me? Did I say the right thing?” And for me, part of transitioning away from that was starting to think about the person I’m talking to. About the people I’m surrounded by. And every time I’m worried like, “What if they don’t like me?” I just think, “Do I like them? What are they talking about right now? What are they up to?” And I just had to keep telling myself and reminding myself to stop focusing on myself."
