I was hesitant to post this because I’m not blind to the many negative ways in which this comic could be misconstrued, such as a sort of encouragement for people to accept abuse or being taken advantage of. Instead, I hope it comes across as a message of not letting assholes poisoning you into being an asshole yourself. Charlie Brown never got to kick the ball but I always found his unwavering* trust in Lucy a much more admirable achievement.


* He refused to kick it in that one strip, I know 😉
