As I said, you're a wonderful person and I hope your progeny multiplies and your name will outlive many of us.He was young and stupid, and it's not rare and everyone's guilty of some degree of this shit. I did the same "nice guy" shit a couple of times before I learned how it was just doing myself no favors- and even worse, it actually doesn't actually help the person you're trying to help (and let's be honest, many times you're not trying to help for selfless reasons when you're doing this). It can actually cause a person to develop a lot of negative patterns of behavior without ever having to resolve their own issues.
I didn't do it because I cared about him so much, I did it because quite honestly it was just fucking disgusting to watch and I couldn't let a THOT-Enabling event like this perpetuate until it became a full Cobalt-Class contamination like the Parkinsdale Convergence of 1987.
No, really- it was fucking agonizing and obnoxious. But we actually became friends, and he's happy and we laugh about it sometimes when we catch up on holidays.
God bless you for doing this.
