reminder that yes, consent is needed for hugs too. if you wanna touch a person at all, enter their space, then you need to ask for permission.
Yup. I just got hugged by one of my (HUGE) classmate… He didn’t undestand, why I hit him in the solar plexus without warning. Well, sometimes they just forget my reputation I built up in three years. (Did I tell you, that I broke a guy’s nose because of the same reason? Somestimes I wonder why am I afraid of men, if I can protect myself…)
I’m probably a terrible hugger: I either shy away, don’t hug back, shout at you, or hit you. Same goes for any kind of touch (which just disgust me, when I have no trust in the other party).
When I have my better days, I just realise: I am a wreck. I hate getting touched, yet crave for someone, whom I can trust enough, but then I have trust issues, social anxiety and (probably maniac, since I have the same symptoms my mom had) depresson.
My future is bright as a subway tunnel at midnight.
