Who else is going through a quarter life crisis? How old are you? What things do you feel behind in? What things have you accomplished that you're happy with? Is there anything you love that you're starting to feel too old for? How does your life compare to what you pictured it would be by now when you were younger?

When I was a teen,no told myself I'd end it all before I hit 30 years old I things we're still bad. I have myself a timeline to bypass the cliche response of "oh, this pain is only temporary" or "if you tried getting help things would be better" or whatever. Here I am getting close to 30 and my life feels like it's progressed since then but I definitely fight against the same emotional struggles.

I want to go back to college but I'm too anxious of the thought of getting overworked by doing it part time with my full time job. I feel like I'm not the right person for my job either.

I kinda wish I didn't have an SO right now because it would make suicide much easier. St least that's one thing I have that my teen self would be surprised about considering I always thought I'd be alone….and I was up until 2 years ago….what a pathetic age to have a first relationship.

I feel like at this point I've experienced all that I really have to experience from life. Like…where do I go from here? Nothing interests me, nothing motivates me, I'm just walking forward because I'm currently living but I don't really want to live and have no destination I'm walking to…

No goals, no aspirations, no dreams (that are obtainable realistically anyway), no motivations,and no excitement. I feel like by this point if I don't like life, why bother continuing? Like, if you sit through a quarter of a long book and still don't like it, why the fuck would you keep reading? By that point you've already read enough to get a good feel of what to expect from the rest of the book, and given it more than a fair chance to impress you, and if it hadn't by that point then I think most of us would put it down I guess the difference is that we always have other books to try to entice us, but imagine you didn't. You get to see everyone else with much more interesting books in their hands, and you're stuck with your crummy one. They want to read their stories to the end, because they're exciting and fun. You have no choice but to read your shitty book, and if you throw it out you'll never have another book again….but is it worth it putting up with the shitty book? I'd rather have no book at all. I should end this story soon. Before anyone asks - yup I've seeked professional help. That's what makes it more enticing to just end things. I feel like by this point, I have a right to say "I've tried everything I could and life still sucks. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Also I made this huge rambling first thing in the morning while phone posting before I even put my contact lenses in. It probably showsfrom all my typos, but I think it's patbetic that the first thing I think every morning is "boy, is sure wish I didn't wake up today…."

Worried about my prospects while climbing out of NEET status. I fucked up so much. I had a good job with interesting career paths and I just quit and stayed in my house for a few years instead. That gap looks so bad on my resume. Guess I am willing to settle on whatever at this point though.

My livelihood is fine but goddamn I want my dignity back.

No. 400508

Can't you just come up with some sort of "freelance" work to put on a resume so it fills the gap? Maybe say that you do art on the side and have taken hefty commissions that supported you for that time.

I’m 22 and the only job experience I’ve had is a government summer job ages ago, and 5 months worth of a retail job (that I’m still sticking to). Is there a way to pivot myself into a non-minimum wage job without advancing beyond an associates degree? I know some people can work on charisma alone, but I’m definitely not that type of person.

I dunno if I should look into IT or other tech heavy accrediting programs, since I’d have to compete with people actually interested in those programs and/or have been doing them since they were a 12 year old tech wizard.

No. 400792

Anon I had the same problem due to mental illness but still got the really nice office job I have now while I go back to school. If you have a gap and they ask you about it you can say "medical issues" and they won't question you about it. And it's not untrue if you struggle with mental illness. Most companies are very understanding.

The "freelance" idea isn't bad either. You can also say you've done work for a family member's company or something as well if you have someone to back you up. You're definitely not doomed and you'll be able to find something.

one thing ive noticed is how obsessed pull users are with someone not being a "good model". for example >>397308 and those recent pics in the kenna thread. they always come up with so many excuses,

>shes too fat

>she has a rotten personality
>her makeup is bad

etc, even when the model and the pictures look good. why do they have to endlessly nitpick kenna wearing a rainbow hair clip instead discussing actual milk. a lot of people in those threads just seem like theyre seething becase theyre not the ones getting modelling deals in glorious nippon. maybe theres an other reason for why those other girls with a higher following were getting the modelling deals instead kek.

No. 400727

This happens if blog posting is allowed (apparently it's against PULL's rules but the mods don't give a fck). It's always about themselves, how pretty and good they are and more deserving than any other girl in this world. Nitpicking will always be a problem on every platform but if narcissistic/jealous people find a way to talk about themselves, this issue will basically explode.

I once knew an ultra christian girl that was a fujo, got rejected by her crush for a gay man and started drawing fanart of those 2 kissing and gave it to him for his birthday. It was the deviantart tier overly airbrushed kind of art.

I probably wouldn't have a problem with fujoshits if they wouldn't erase the personalities of my favourite characters and draw them as mentally crippled. Like seriously, show some love for those guys instead of drawing them as helpless and crying about dick.

No. 400576

My problem with fujoshits is that they always try to claim there's something 'more' going on between two male characters who are just clearly deeply platonic. I've seen this in multiple fandoms and no one is allowed to speak up against this without being branded as a homophobe.
It's like these boring bitches have never had a long term best friend that really cared about them before (I can see that) and vice versa. It's really disgusting and propagates disrespectful social issues.

No. 400578

yeah like i don't care if they ship two male characters and have their headcanons or whatever but when it gets to the insane "it's 100% DEFINITELY real (creator) keeps them closeted but it's canon homophobe hets can keep denying it but it's obvious" extent it's extremely cringy. the amount of people like this has doubled with the whole fake woke lgbt representation wave.

No. 400589

There are lots of anime where guys fight for a girl in a love triangle and they end up being shipped together. Is it a fun idea? Sure, but then you see it become "canon" even if one guy slashes the other with a sword and they express disgust to each other.

I can get fujos on 4chan that do it for the shitposting and pissing homophobic guys off- but you see a character who has legit suffered because of another one and had his health harmed or lost major opportunities in life and tumblr goes on to push them as a healthy canon tsundere ship. Bonus points if both guys have healthier relationships with other men in the story.

The other variant is where the 2 guys have a good relationship, but they never hug, kiss or express romantic interest and a fujo legit told me that I'm too shallow if I need any of that for a romantic pairing, that muh nipponjin fujos are superior because they don't care about the canon and are happy dreaming about it.

This shit happens so often it's not even funny. Now people have a high pedestal for this inane complaint too, so you can't blame it on some dumb spergs anymore, so you get both the woke retards and the spergs arguing that the author doesn't love his fanbase.
>pic related, fujos got mad even though ONE (author) later said that he doesn't mind any type of fanart
It would be fine with rival shipping so long as fujos didn't try to jam it in everyone's throats. These are somehow usually the most popular ships because fujos can't learn how to not wet themselves when there's two dudes fighting about one murdering the other's entire family or something.

Society values the youth. Any time a young person does something does some considered exceptional for their age it's all over the media. Even online there are amazing artists that have only entered their teens. Seeing this can make anyone feel insecure about their age and what they've accomplished. I see it on here all the time, and it would be a lie if I said I didn't have those feelings.

Your potential doesn't diminish at the age of 25 and it certainly doesn't extinguish itself at the rip old age of 30. Use this thread to collect, document and discussion people that accomplished goal and/or became successful at a later age from what we see. When those exposes is asymmetrical toward those younger, it makes us feel it if you can't young it doesn't exist. Well, /that's not true/. We'll never get younger, only older. So, it's best we realise that /our life isn't over/ and we have decades left to live. Do something you enjoy and be proud of it. We can go it sisters.

First example is this BAD ASS, right here. Her name is Mary Hobson.

Like the first thing I see and know is the most perverted unusual thing out there so it's almost normal to me but I know its wroung (now).
Thing is that i hate, I still get off to those things and feel shame for it. Like, yeah, it's okay to be into kinky shit. But for me its a whole nuther level, literally a sickness, that I still feed even tho I shouldn't and it'll get worse.
