What a clear way to breakdown platonic cuddling 💜


  • @MissAdventurous +1

    I can agree!! That’s one way to look at it!

  • @Kabocha thank you 💗

    It's important to learn compartmentalization to grow.

  • Compartmentalization is a subconscious psychological defense mechanism used to avoid cognitive dissonance, or the mental discomfort and anxiety caused by a person's having conflicting values, cognitions, emotions, beliefs, etc. within themselves.

    Are you sure about your compartmentalization comment or are you hoping to turn a negative into a positive?

    FYI, I agree with the three statements in the first post screen shot

  • @Groucho: Pretty sure @MissAdventurous was using the common "divide into sections or categories" meaning, not the (slightly less common) psychological meaning. Yep—learning not to clump together things that can and do exist separately is a useful life skill!

  • That’s a good description and it should be referenced a lot in these forum discussions.

  • @Darren asking because she majored in Psychology. as did I.

  • Ding ding ding we got a winner with @DarrenWalker 💗

  • That's for sure. :)

  • @Groucho: I'm big into psychology too, but when presented with a word that has two meanings I try to pick the meaning that makes most sense in context, instead of defaulting to the one I'm most familiar with. It's not always the right move, but a lot of the time it is.

    @MissAdventurous: Yay! What do I win?
