*chugs a glass with questionable liquid in it* *throws the glass to the ground full force*
it's probably been talked about a lot... anyway
right now jay must be feeling so useless and his insecurities at its peak
this thought sprung from the fact that jay's original role as The Inventor Of The Team is pretty much non-existent and has been for a while. the girls have more focus on inventing and repairing things than he does, i think. especially when you consider that nya started out as their team support early on. no more than a season and he already has to find some role to fit into since nya has him covered, and later pixal when nya becomes a ninja
he is the comic relief, but that only helps so far. i cant succesfully explain the other's roles without stumbling over my words, but in my mind, the others help out much more than he does in terms of support
so then he needs to prove himself during battles. which, while s6 and s12 are great seasons that prove he is a ninja for a reason, we can't deny that he actually helped nadakhan by being a bit selfish, he lost every single one of his teammates twice, and could've lost everything if he didnt say the right things he had to say (also twice)
in seabound he uh. he. is the main reason why nya sacrificed herself. because he almost drowned. so. pretty easy to put the blame on himself
add in what he thinks his teammates think of him, (cole thinking he could easily beat jay in the tournament of elements, kai saying the 'it should be someone expendable... like jay' line)... jay overthinking why his bio parents consciously and willingly abandoned him... thinking of himself as weak... thinking he couldnt do anything in the whole love triangle fiasco...
so yeah. jay must be asking himself, "what am I really doing here? I am part of the team, but do I deserve it? I am more of a reliability than help. I am easily replaceable. I just drag them down."

Learning to let go
This week we are investigating the placement of Buddhist philosophy in Star Wars! And soon we will release a full article.
Until then here is something to consider.
In The Empire Strikes Back (1980) Luke Skywalker fails his initial training with Yoda on swamp-planet Dagobah. In a vision Luke sees himself in the helmet of Darth Vader (pictured). What does this vision mean?
Answer: Yes, Vader is a source of evil in the galaxy but Luke is too fixated on killing him; he becomes his suffering. Vader is the poster-boy for the dark side. He embodies giving into desire. To avoid this path and eliminate suffering in his own life—and find enlightenment—Luke has to extinguish his immediate human desire to kill Vader and find greater answers: he must resist what feels right now and transcendentally adhere to the will of the Force. Only then will he become strong enough to bring about the return of the Jedi Order.
In the end Luke tries to save Vader.
Can you let go, too? The dark side is always alluring—not just in a galaxy far, far away but here on Earth.
May the Force be with you.

Could eating candies at night be adhd trait? Like brain can't sleep, brain thinks it's bored, it thinks it needs dopamine, candies give dopamine, eat?
Sent 8th November~
Yeah! I can’t explain it in any simpler terms than the way you just did, because that’s absolutely right.
ADHD brains lack dopamine, so we seek it in the form of sugary foods when we’re bored.
