do you need another hug, or some tea, or an airshipload of cute puppy gifs?
I do know this, Stanley. We all care for you dearly, and so do the boys. You needn't be afraid.
I have a similar problem. I'm not afraid that people will hate me, I'm more afraid that they will like me in a way that isn't love at all.
Hyde also has such a problem. All he wants is to mean something to someone. For all his wild ways, his heart is so soft that it melts like ice on a hot stove if anyone shows him kindness. He uses bravado and even anger to hide his fear that nobody will love him or remember him. That time he flew off the handle, it wasn't because of you. He was angry at whoever made that poster and made you fear him. He's very much like a big, soft, tomcat. Just because he has claws and a free spirit doesn't mean he doesn't want to be loved.
