For many, watching Twitch streamers is an opportunity to forget about what’s going on in their own lives, but sometimes taking your issues to the creators you like proves to be incredibly rewarding, as Sweet Anita showed with some amazing advice about relationships.
One of the things that makes Twitch different from any other platform is the ability to have a live connection with your favorite stars, who can chat and react to you in real-time.
This often leads viewers to pose questions to streamers, and sometimes even ask for advice, as one such viewer did with Anita, who opened up about how important every relationship is, and how holding on to happy memories is important even if your time together wasn’t always great.
While discussing breakups with her chat, Anita shared some incredible words of wisdom with her chat, telling her audience: “I’ve met a lot of people who I’ve loved and had to leave because they were cruel or unkind, and I’m still grateful for every experience I had with them.”
“I’m really, really careful to remember the positive parts because humans distort their memories. Your memories will distort to justify your current feelings, and so you will rewrite whole chapters of your history to justify your sense of self.”
“It’s a mechanism that all humans do,” she explained to her viewers. “The thing is, I spent years with these people and I made happy memories, and if I let my current feelings about them now taint those memories, I lose six, seven years of my life.”
Twitch can often be a place for laughs and funny moments, but sometimes it does provide viewers with incredible advice and life lessons that they can take forward.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Anita has given her audience some pearls of wisdom, previously sharing how she deals with grief in an amazing moment back in July.
