A sister thread to the regular internet paranoia thread >>>/ot/2078297 since that one is more about enabling it than helping it. For those of us whose internet fear and need to not be perceived has affected us so much that it may cause a hindrance in our lives, and how to get better from it. Optional questions:
>When did you start noticing you may have internet paranoia and what do you think caused it?
>Do you feel like you have a legit reason to be afraid, or are you just cautious?
>Is there any specific scenario you are afraid of happening?
>Has this impacted your real life in any way? Is there any unhealthy behavior you may have noticed?
>Has someone confronted you about it?
>How did you get better? How do you control the fear?
>Do you still curate your online presence or take any additional measures?
Disclaimer: This is not a thread to shit on cyber security. This is a thread for those of us whose hypervigilance got taken to extreme degrees and now the fear has taken over.

Are you retarded? There isn't a law saying you need to put photos of your figure collection online and attach your name and/or face to it. Fucking hell, how retarded do you have to be to think that we'd make a thread on you for being a braindead weeb? Addyharajuku is a cringey virtue signalling hypocrite who's online 24/7. She's entertaining. You don't have to be. Going 'uwu b-but I am so sowwy for being cwinge, uguuuuu, ablooobloo, pls halp, kyaaa' is only getting you asspats here because you sound like you genuinely have a room temperature IQ. Absolutely nobody gives a fuck about the cringe shit you post online for your 4 followers to see. Unless you're as attention seeking elsewhere are you are in this thread, I can confidently tell you that you're fine.

Real. Had to do the same to find peace. I went as far as to report and erase every mention. I even clear up my anonymous accounts every now and then.
I noticed there is just is much triggering stuff on social media anyway. You want to read on one issue and the algorithm will flood you and try to push you in a certain niche. I just can't emotionally deal with it. I hate the idea of being associated with some things even if I agree with them. I hate the idea that people perceive me through these associations. I like it best when I spend as little time on social media as possible.

No. 2083585

I think a lot of men do have those thoughts, even if they are only occasional, and they are still concerning even if they are occasional. I don't know for certain, but I think a 'healthy amount' of paranoia is okay. For example, any moid could be a predator, you might not know it until it's too late. It's better to be wary. For example, I might call myself friends with a moid, but I would never go hiking alone with a 'friend moid', like I would go hiking alone with a woman. Sure, probably nothing would happen, but if something did happen, it feels like everyone would blame me for it (i.e., even normies will say shit like, 'why did she go with him?'.)
I think the meta is to be neutrally friendly with people until they give you a reason not to be, but to be cautious and keep an eye on others.

>When did you start noticing you may have internet paranoia and what do you think caused it?
I noticed mid last year after a mild breakdown, I think it was caused by years of being really into retarded internet drama via Kiwifarms and lolcow so I feel like I have a target painted on my back at all times.

>Do you feel like you have a legit reason to be afraid, or are you just cautious?

Yes and no. From childhood my mother has instilled a fear in me of my violent father finding out where we live and killing us, which has only gotten worse as he is currently out of prison and MIA. As a result I'm terrified of being doxxed because of stupid internet drama. On the other side of the coin I'm also scared of people cataloguing me and talking behind my back and using sock puppet accounts to manipulate me, which is mostly unfounded. There's also some OCD tier superstitions where I can't do or say things online because it would cause something bad to happen in my real life, ranging from mild misfortune or injury and death, which has been reinforced by said bad things happening hours or days after talking about certain things.

>Is there any specific scenario you are afraid of happening?

Like I've said, parent murdering me and underhanded manipulation, as well as ominous bad things.

>Has this impacted your real life in any way? Is there any unhealthy behavior you may have noticed?

In the past yes, like that time I was paranoid that somehow people were tracking me and putting nerve agents on things that they knew I'd touch so I'd wear disposable gloves and clean all my groceries in the sink and avoid handling anything in public and avoiding eating food from any source that wasn't me. It was a bizarre few months. Currently, not really it makes me feel mildly depressed and lonely because I live in a rural butt hole and have no one to talk to except online. I also feel like I lack personality because I play so many roles online and that I'm a particularly vile and hateful person as I don't believe the description of "nice" or "kind" so many people give me. A bad behavior that I've noticed is that I don't really think of other people online as people, more like an vn character that I can prod into acting or perceiving me in a certain. Another is just cutting people off when they get too friendly, I'm not reallPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Någon annan som känner ett par störiga killar som insisterar på att använda "ni" istället för "du"? Finns ju ingen jävlan anledning?

Kände en kille (30 år, så inte ens bara en töntig tonåring) som gjorde det. Han var halvt icke-binär, dvs gjorde inget åt saken och bara sa att han var det, och extremt pro-trans and woke för hela slanten. Han hatade även sverige i allmänhet och skulle alltid försöka prata engelska fastän vi båda är svenska. Men när han pratade svenska var det "NI" som gällde. Tror han låtsades att det var för att engelska har "you" för både du och ni. Och det trots att hans pro-trans attityd betydde att "misgendering" genom att använda fel pronomen i princip är ett hatbrott. Jag sa flera gånger att jag inte vill bli kallad "ni" men inte fan brydde han sig, eller bara glömde det. Är det inte trans-pronomen så betyder det ju plötsligt inget!

I always thought about moving to Scandavia since high school but I’ve heard your problems with immigrations and super religious Muslims. Is it safe for an ex-Muslim who was educated in America? Is it worth trying? How strong is the right wing over there?

No. 2083805

I can only speak for Sweden but we're A LOT more chill and safe than America. I have had several Muslim friends and classmates who weren't even actually religious, they were just culturally Muslim in name. Some had siblings who were ex-Muslim turned atheist, their still Muslim families didn't care at all. I've never met super religious Muslims here ever tbh, and I live in one of the biggest cities.
Our problems with immigration aren't even close to the problems the US has with immigration so you have nothing to worry about coming from there imo. Also our "right wing" (and left) is considerably less extreme than in the US, so everything is way more "central". Overall we're a woke country, but in a more chill way than what I see from the US. We're for example fully fine with gay marriage but we don't have a big "pride month" like over there.

No. 2083840

Yes it's fine. Where are you considering moving? You're very welcome to Sweden, just try to learn our language please, many english-speaking immigrants don't. And maybe avoid Malmö, the city with most immigrants/muslims, but since it's Sweden being a native atheist is still the most common thing to be.

Why do some parents find it so much easier to blame their kids/the victims rather than the actual problem or perpetrator? My mother is the type of person to blame a toddler for being bullied or beaten or raped and even somehow claim the toddler was the aggressor. Not just "oh you must have provoked them to hurt you", she'll literally think "you hurt them first" because somehow it's more rational to her.

No. 2083757

>Why do some parents find it so much easier to blame their kids/the victims rather than the actual problem or perpetrator?
Because they're infantile. They don't want to deal with the problem in any way and they don't want to think how they might've contributed to it, for example, by being neglectful and letting a child to be somewhere/with someone alone, or not explaining something that they should've, or making the space safer for them. So it's easier for them to give all the responsibility to the kid.
As for the second part of your post, I think that's how abusers think. Either abusers themselves or those who are protective of their abusive husbands, boyfriends, sons.

No. 2083759

My father claimed I was the bully when I complained about kids bullying me in elementary. Right, I'm the one calling them names and hitting them or something. He then claimed I was the one purposely seducing boys who would sexually harass me in high school because I was ESL/one of the only WOC there even though I was 11, barely knew what sex was, and they were around 18
I have a friend whose mother sided with her rapist when she was 12 and he was 23. Absolute vile human beings. It's just easier to put your rage onto the person in front of you rather than their aggressor who's miles away

No. 2083761

I can't tell you why any specific set of parents does it, but generally it tends to be because they view children as their property that they can do with as they please, take their anger out on and blame for their personal shortcomings.
It's pretty clear from a lot of parents' behavior that for all the accusations of selfishness when you don't do as they order you to, it's just projection because many of them have kids with the intention of them being their little mini-me avatar or out of obligation, i.e. pretty selfish reasons to have children.

This is in addition to what the other anon said. Sadly therapy wasn't really a thing with earlier generations, you had it if you were "crazy" (as in a paranoid schizophrenic, delusional tinfoiler who hurt others, and usually not even then because asylums and therapy were by and large institutions where you dump and drug uncooperative women) and had to keep mum about it because it was shameful, or you didn't because you're not "crazy" and your parents beat you bloody but you "turned out just fine".

No. 2083764

Fuck this hits home. Up until the age of 16 I genuinely thought therapy was for severely psychotic, movie level Joker type people who needed to be injected forcefully every day in psych wards or else they'd go on mass murders because that's how stigmatised it is with my parents and their culture. There's no such thing as depression or anxiety type mental illness with them, mental illness = insane schizo serial killer and anything less is just you being lazy or stupid to them. Being homeschooled for a while during teenage years definitely didn't help.

I know that threads dedicated to specific countries are technically banned, but the Suomillanka, North Africa and German threads are fine and since I've been seeing a lot of Dutchfags (perhaps summerfags, who knows) I thought a Dutchfag thread could be fun. Especially since we have a lot of cows, whether it's on tv or just social media. Also, feel free to discuss anything fun! Like music, food, Dutch habits/manners. Vent about the housing crisis, overregulation, Americanisation, all of it!

Major cows:

Family de Mol
>Johnny the Mol beats up his wife multiple times, allegedly daddy paid all witnesses 5000 euros and gave his wife a house in Ibiza so she would shut her mouth.
>Knew about the Voice kids scandal (multiple children and teens were molested and some even raped), did not do anything at all.
>John de Mol has control over the public television, does not allow criticism on him or any associates.

Marco Borsato
>Singer, former coach for the Voice Kids.
>Molested 2 girls (if not more), one was 15, the other 13 at his home barbecue (which was for the participants of the Voice Kids).
>Keeps acting like it's all untrue despite evidence.

Feel free to also use this thread a support network. Brain training, healthy brain foods, building up gray matter and executive functions back up, unlearning destructive habits ect also covered. Avoiding digital junk information landscape in general (adblockers ect) can also be discussed. Any type of technology or media addiction can be covered, including things like netflix or youtube binging that wouldn't be normally considered addictive.

Ideally this thread could be similar to the health and wellness threads, but for our brains and the type of information we consume.
