1. Filtering: You take the negative details and magnify them, while filtering out all positive aspects of a situation. A single detail may be picked out, and the whole event becomes colored by this detail. When you pull negative things out of context, isolated from all the good experiences…
“The main thing was we were losing, and I felt the reason we were losing was because of me. I put a lot of pressure on myself. I wanted to finish the season well. That was the biggest concern for me, to find a way to get better, because we weren’t playing well, or moving the ball, and that was on me.’

Hatas gonna hate… (coughESPNwriters/bandwagonHeatfanscough)
but whatever, I almost like that they don’t favor us in the series.
It’s not like we aren’t ready to attack:
Or irritate the shit out of them and get into their heads:
I mean honestly, wasn’t New York favored too?
COME AT US, YO.
We’re best friends.
We hang out in school, vent to each other, give each other piggy back rides; sometimes people ask us if we’re dating because we’re always together. She’s attractive, I’m not going to lie. But I prefer to keep her as my best friend because my relationship with her would last longer than a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. I was there while she was angry at the world, she was there when I was depressed as fuck, we’re there for each other. We make each other realize that we’re not alone. She’s a girl that I could count on. I’m the guy that she could count on. She influenced my decisions that I make. She’s the reason why I’m the person I am today.
