One time on Overwatch I was playing well drunk cause I was having a bad time with things in life. A group of random people I was playing with that I found through the group finder started talking about relationships and they realize I kinda turned sour. At that point in my life I felt souly alone despite having friends and family. Two of the people in the party invited me to a discord and asked if I was alright and if I needed to talk. At first I told them I didn't wanna talk cause I saw it as my problem to fix and not one for them to bear. Eventually I decided to open up about a lot of my issues. I don't really remember what I told them but I remember focusing on muting myself after I talked so they couldn't hear me cry. I don't know how long we talked but it was a while and very late at night (2am-4am). They stayed untill I was finished talking which I was constantly apologizing for due to how late it was before we parted ways.
They never rushed me, they never questioned my actions, they just listened, and told me it will be okay. At first I kinda felt like I was emotional taken advantage of cause I was drunk and wouldn't of told anyone what I said to them. After a day or two I felt really grateful and it relived a lot of pressure I put on myself. I was lucky in receiving compassion when I needed it most and it was a privilege that most don't receive. Sometimes you find the biggest support from people you least expect in times you think would never come.
I don't remember both of their names but I remember one.... It was "BENIS". Yup a person that helped me through a bad time was called "BENIS" and no it's not a joke.
It may not be a funny, but that's okay. Sometimes we need a bit of wholesome in our lives. I'll allow it.

Bros will be bros
I used to play a MMOPG on Mobile called Kingdoms At War. I made friends in that game 13 years ago that I text nearly daily.
And then a 12 y/o calls you a N***** and says he fvcked your mom, two sides of the coin.
Same stuff happens in our discord channel.
