So friends. I pose an issue for you, along with a challenge. In a world of false connections and internet friendships (which are awesome, don’t get me wrong), humans have gotten out of the practice of hugging all the time. I once heard that people need 7 hugs a day to survive and 10 to grow. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU GOT A REAL, HONESTLY GOOD HUG? The struggle is REAL. Often, hugs end up like the above. You get the dreaded side hug which pretty much makes me feel like a trapped octopus. Or the weird hug that happens on a first date (should we kiss? Okay no…I’ll just do this weird somewhat save instead. So smooth). Or the patting hug where you can’t tell if you’re supposed to be comforted or if they’re burping you.
ANYWAY - I’d like this to go around tumblr. Share an awkward hug story and let’s demand the comeback of proper hugs.
Please tag with IDGHP (I don’t get hugged properly).
ALSO, this is for GISHWHES. HELP A GIRL OUT.
It’s a win-win. And pretty much a virtual hug, right?
