Rick, you adorable buffoon.

You'll have to come back here sooner or later, wouldn't it be better to do what you have to do?

Why not? It's not helping.

No you won't. It's only a matter of time before the doctor finds his switch and you all wake up. What's the point in even continuing here?

RE: Superego
Cherry: Your other self there seems so very strong. Is she an entirely made up being? A programmed test? Or is she partly of your own personality? Just imagine what you both could accomplish if instead of beating you down she were helping you stand. Could you be that strong too? If you weren't spending so much time berating yourself over small mistakes maybe you could be working towards a better you. Maybe you can be amazing.

>Cherry: You can change. It will take a lot of work, and you'll want to quit sometimes, but even in the process of change you can be happy.

>Cherry: fight for a chance at friendship, fight for a chance at being able to take the pressure, fight for a chance to better yourself. FIGHT!

the world is a cruel place. every day I wake up and have to face it. sometimes it's so hard I can't get out of bed. sometimes I go through the motions. I... broke, in a lot of the same ways cherry has. I had to quit school and had to live at home for a long time. I'm taking slow steps to be able to take the pressure of adult life, and even though I'm not there yet, I'm happy with my life and the friends I have.

-youre staying here forever
-until i cease to exist
-until this place ceases to exist
-until you cease to exist

Well it's kind of hard given that Other-Cherry was a formless blob of squiggling mass when she did it, so all talk of "form" and "technique" is kind of out the window--

Wait, no! This isn't the time for this! She needs help!

But how?

> I have to agree. Maybe you're worried it's weak, or it doesn't count, but humans as a species are strong because we work together. Before you can learn to be strong, focus on just being okay.

All you have to do is start. Make that first stride. Any action, no matter how small, is enough.

"Cease this tomfoolery at once! Fighting isn't going to--"

"Hoorf!"
"Stop!"

"P-please...stop..."

[Image: 2208.gif]

"I...uh..."

You don't even know what to say.

You haven't had any revelations. You don't feel any better. You just feel depressed.

You keep beating yourself up.

You know you need to take a step forward. Anyone could tell you that.

But to where?

RE: Superego
Perhaps, it's good to talk it out, like, talk about your experiences with Rick. Talk about the moments you felt depressed and sad. Don't hide from them, rather let them play out, and always keep in mind that there's someone who's got your back in the present moment.

RE: Superego
Say what's on your mind.

You don't know. You're confused. You want to be better than this, but you don't know how.
