never feel bad for helping someone who can’t help themselves. my friend in high school lost her older brother to a drug addiction overdose because they didn’t do anything and it still gives her nightmares to this day.

Thank you for taking the time to say this. This day feels like it is slowly imploding on me and the idea that I’m even attempting to help her makes it feel worth it. The last thing I would want is something to happen to her. A job’s important but nowhere near your actual health

Right when Leslie finds out she is pregnant, she calls Ben. That seems out of character for Leslie Knope who has always been a staunch believer in over-the-top romantic gestures and extravagant gifts. But when she is faced with a huge, life changing  situation, she automatically calls him. She doesn’t reserve eagles, craft a throne, hire a singing telegram, or make a scrapbook. She just picks up the phone and says “I have very big news for you.” She doesn’t stew in her emotions alone. She doesn’t question if she should tell him right away. It’s as natural a response for her as eating waffles for breakfast. She knows this is their adventure and she couldn’t bear to keep it to herself. The sneakiness and romantic gestures all evaporate when it comes down to the two of them, the core of their relationship, love. She doesn’t even hesitate, she just calls.

I thought I was upset because my parents are insane, but Ron just showed me the real reason.

Filed under can we talk about this? how leslie was so tame so 'ooc' in that she didn't buy eagles or fireworks or break out the wooden box to tell him she just told him she was actually going to tell him on the phone when she first found out how telling is that of their relationship? of Leslie's growth and faith in her relationship? i think it's the most important thing about their relationship but it's missable so perfectly subtle that in one smile you know it all they love each other guyyyyysssssss these two nerds

"She was filled with regret before she died. She felt like she’d failed us as a mother tremendously.""Did she say something to you about it?""She never said anything, so I don’t have any tangible proof that she had regrets. But she had a very bad substance abuse problem. And I know she always wanted to be a good mother. So I separate my mom from her disease. I always imagine that my mom and an alcoholic were living in the same body. And I know that my mom loved us. And that she hated the alcoholic."
