Some people just don't really want to be cared about, do they?
Oooh! This dialogue is just... super authentic. Eating right, sleeping well, and exercising can be very... loaded phrases, and when you're depressed or having anxiety/perfectionist issues, taking care of yourself can be just another club to beat yourself with. Ellery's concern here is genuine and commendable but it's a definite pitfall in relationships between anxious/depressed and non-anxious/depressed people, to come to an understanding together about proper balance between accepting/reciprocating concern and not shutting oneself off while the other grapples how to express love and support without having it sound like "can't you just not be anxious/depressed?"
I want a top like Kristin's.
Hmmm... After this short exchange one must wonder what Ellery gets out of this relationship!
must have been some crazy medication
