The Anti Burn Book -- spreading some love

That thread about cyber bullying got me thinking about what total assholes some people can be. 

I remember watching horrible things on the news a few years ago and coming to the realization that I really can't stop terrible people from doing terrible things, but I can try to counter-balance them or cancel them out by doing awesome things. So I started my "random acts of kindness" mission. 


So here it is!

    princessofgenovia inspired this thread, my first anti-burn is for you! 

    I think you're awesome. I've never seen you say one mean thing to anyone, and I always love reading your posts. I'm so glad you're part of TK! :)

    Last winter, some random person brushed the snow off my car in my work parking lot. Maybe they thought it was their car until they unburied it, but I like to think they did it just to be kind. :)
    I've done this! If I'm out there brushing snow anyway, why not get the car next to me too? I've also had someone do this to my car and it made me smile! 

    And once last winter, someone bought my drink for my in the drive thru at Starbucks!

    @novella1186 I'm very grateful that you vent about your family here because it makes me feel less alone with my family. We have very similar family drama. I also want to thank @beethry for always suggesting cool places to go in Atlana. Also thanks everyone for giving me advice on my weight goals and hair advice. Everyone here is awesome.

    It has helped me a ton too to know that other people have similar family drama and that there are sane ways of dealing with it. TK has legitimately improved my life! I don't know what I would do without you guys.

    holyguacamole79 you've gone out of your way to say things to me that were so extremely helpful in what I was dealing with, and the fact that you cared and took the time to do that means a lot and made a huge difference. 

    Not to mention, you started the thread for my birthday which was way too awesome and made me smile all day! You are wonderful!

    Aww, thanks. You're kind of amazing, too. You're very resilient and stronger than you realize, and I'm so glad you're going to talk to a therapist on the regular. You've got a good head on your shoulders and I think sometimes you just need someone in your corner to remind you of that. :D

    I have a whole mess of callouts, but I'm about to pee in my chair so they'll have to wait until later.

    Thank you! Based on some of the things you've told me, I think you're a total badass. You make me realize I'll be ok. The fact that you've been so super supportive has really pushed me to do the right things and not let this family drama crap keep hurting me.

    You've all been so awesome, especially when my mom got her diagnosis (@JCbride2015 in particular). TK has been such a big help to me in times of need.

    @ohannabelle - I just want to hug you forever. You have so much time and patience and compassion for all these strangers from the internet. You are just the best person ever.

    @MagicInk - You rock and I have a total girl-crush on you. I love how honest you are about everything.

    Second this! @Jells2dot0 you're tough as shit and brave as hell. I really admire the way you've tackled your issues. And I genuinely hope that if I were ever faced with such a serious health problem, I would kick ass to the level that you have!
