This is one of the most beautiful and true things ever.
I will not lie, i am tearing up after seeing this.
((This needs to be here.))
omfg. literally crying. i have always seen my characters as my family and imagined them there with me and they have power like no one else does. because they are a part of your mind, and so when your character tries to raise your self-esteem, or help you out with a relationship problem, etc., it’s actually you doing that. but your mind puts your thoughts in the facade of a character that helps you be more comfortable with it. your fucking mind solves its own problems when it knows you don’t want to listen to yourself by using a back door method and establishing those traits in your characters. it is freaking incredible.
