My parents probably have the stupidest immigration story ever. My mom came over here as a teenager for reasons unknown(thats not the stupid part). My dad, a recently graduated law student, came over here just so he could be with her. Maybe I'm just being stupid because I believe you shouldn't immigrate unless you're retired or have no other choice. Blagh. I feel bad for him because he could've been a lawyer and in his city that means moolah(and fulfilling his dream). Sorry if this is off topic or too blogposty but I had to let it out. Its also weird because there are people who were forced to leave their countries and he could've chosen not to because he had a good life over there and more financial opportunity than over here.

This sounds like a fucking nightmare and I know exactly the type you're talking about, I have no idea how anyone can find them attractive. I guess it's because they usually have some attractive cartoon avatar, might be good looking by nerd guy standards and are snarky and assertive online so desperate e-girls sadly end up simping for them. Kinda reminds me of armoredskeptic tbh

God, yes. Used to date an extremely handsome and popular guy but he was exactly like this. Thank god he ended up cheating on me almost right away so I was able to walk out before he broke me.

I throw those buzzwords always out of the window, I can’t be bothered to know the difference between an asshole and those clinical terms like autism or antisocial personality disorder.

Anyways, I have noticed that a woman or man grows out of their “mental illnesses”/lazy “toxic” NEET cunt behavior when they actually have a heart or some degree of decency to fucking google how to improve their lives/how to be a better person at least.

Shitty parents (I said shitty not evil) don’t make a shitty person, whoever claims this were always those clingy annoying kids who thought that their parents were buttbuddies/hs friends. Every single kid I knew that hated their parents never did shit for chores and barely did a thing for school and when they got bullied at school they get comfortable enough to shit on their parents and basically anyone who feels sorry for them.

Speaking of bullies, I believe an allround shitty environment does actually make a person more prone to be shitty (since there’s more about life than just being a toxic cunt in your parents home…). When you step out of it, gradually or cold turkey, you’ll instantly become a better person. A good chunk of posts here scream whiney spoiled bpd, girls that fuck with buzzwords that don’t really mean a thing, to anyone who’s reading this and and actually lurks consumes ”peer-reviewed” brainwash material on /r/raisedbynarcissists, muh narcs, joins hugboxes where everyone is being a “shut in”, posts on imageboards constantly:

You don’t wanna be that unwashed girl who still hates their parents at the age of 40 because they’re not cool moms like Kris Jenner. So get a life and stop blaming them for the reason why you can’t do much. You have google, there’s probably a library nearby that’s no longer shut because of the corona virus, do something and wash your ass.

I speak a few languages already but it's been my lifelong dream to learn Japanese. It wasn't an option for me to learn at school so I feel like I've missed out on those crucial years when your mind picks up languages more easily. I wish I could turn back time. I've tried learning apps like Duolingo and some workbooks that I've ordered online but I really struggle with picking up a new alphabet.

I've gotten it colder than I used to have it– it's lukewarm right now but I can't see myself showering in cold. I just kept turning the temp colder each time to the absolute minimum that I could bare.

It's more for my skin than the environment tbh, but it's a plus. My roommate complains about how the shower's never hot enough and I'm just like

No. 603795

I wouldn't even think cold showers would be doable during the winters here, it's genuinely one of only warm places I have during that time of year. I do however think that you could train yourself to tolerate them but the few seconds thing seems kind of pointless. Just turn it colder each day or something and suck it up.

No. 603837

Are there any types of mental illnesses you steer clear away from people for having? Not the really hardcore shit like psychopathy or sociopathy, but things that people would label you as ableist for refusing to get close to someone for having.

I've been burned too many times by people with Borderline (or who check off every symptom if they're undiagnosed). The disorder is literally just a cluster of toxic traits. They're simply not capable of being healthy people to have in your life. One of the traits of the disorder is that they will act totally obsessed with you then drop you abruptly for little to no reason, usually in a really dramatic OTT way. I just can't deal with someone who has a personality disorder that is defined by a trait like that. It stays with me for years when people pull that shit and now when people are super enthusiastic about our friendship, I get worried they're going to do that. Even when they don't even have BPD. And don't even get me started on the other traits involved with that disorder.

I also can't deal with people who have EDs, whether it's one involving weight loss or weight gain. It would be one thing if they only applied their deluded view of weight to themselves, but they almost always have to drag other people into their sickness. I want nothing to do with someone who tries to make me feel like a fat sack of lard when I'm a twig. Or who insists I look better overweight than I did at a healthy size.

People with depression issues who can't get their shit together. I fall into this category, but am working hard to get out of it. I can't be around hyper-negative people who complain about their problems constantly and let their mindset cripple them long-term from any advancement, especially when I'm fighting to NOT be like that. I also don't like feeling like my main purpose in someone's life is to be the person they dump everything on.

Autists. I know this one is just mean, but being friends with them is painfully awkward. You have to be uncomfortably blunt because they don't get even the most obvious hints, plus they tend to have no filter and say incredibly mean and/or offensive shit. I'm always so anxious about introducing my autistic friends to people because they pretty much always embarrass the fuck out of me. Here's just a few of the gems of examples I have of them doing so:

I can hardly fucking stand autists anymore. Even the high functioning ones have such low emotional intelligence, it's hard to maintain a friendship with them. I have my own issues with periods of self loathing and low self esteem, and having to deal with autistic friends being completely callous when I'm trying to reach out for help and communicate to them that I'm not in the mood for their bullshit drives me insane.
I fucking hate online propagagnda about "be nice and listen to autistic people! Let them tell you about their special interests and guide them if they can't understand how to socialize!" Fuck that shit. I'm looking for a friendship, not a child to babysit. I had an autistic irl friend who would come to my house just to ramble about her homestuck/undertale fanfic, without so much as asking me about my day, and only fucking off when I told her I had homework because I wasn't a neet like her. I don't see why other people should be expected to baby autists when they're actively harming other people's mental health from their own social ineptitude.

My boyfriend is autistic (so am I lol) he's honestly the only autistic guy I've actually tolerated. It's nice to have someone who has the same struggles and similar upbringing. I've dated normies before and they just didn't understand.

I have depression and my man has BPD, we’re a great pair lol. But truly, I feel so lucky to be in this relationship. I have put up with a ton of his bullshit and he’s been patient with me. It’s been really difficult at times but at this point we’ve actually improved a lot of our symptoms together. Maybe both having mental illnesses was “good” in a way since we were both willing to help each other out and tolerate things others typically wouldn’t, because we saw the person underneath the symptoms.

I have a friend who’s a narc and while I don’t dislike him, it’s really scary how absolutely magnetic he can be and you’d have no idea how messed up he was unless you had the opportunity to observe him over a longer period of time. It’s unsettling.

I hate bipolar people. My aunt has a severe case of it. When my mom and I are over she will spam my grandparents phone line and leave cryptic messages. My grandparents have been sending her money for the past 20+ years and will buy her things if she screams hard enough. I just hope my aunt just kills herself at this point. She's ruined her children's life with her drug addiction and they resent her. All she does these days is cry about how her kids cut her off.
I was at my grandparent's last week and once again my aunt was spamming the phone line. However this time was over the fact her daughter is blowing CERB on Meth and needs to get her meth mouth fixed because "her teeth hurt".

Tbh bpdlovedones was somewhat helpful for me right when I was getting out of an abusive relationship with someone with bpd. They're one of the only groups that doesn't try to make endless excuses for bpd behavior or bring up their traumatic pasts to illicit frankly undeserved sympathy for these people. That said, you can tell a lot of them are just emotionally stunted dudes slapping the bpd label on their ex-girlfriends bc they can't be bothered to examine the ways in which they disrespected her throughout the whole relationship. Their advice is mostly sound though. There's no point in trying to fix these people. It doesn't work. The only solution is to leave, whether people want to accept that or not.

Women with bpd are apparently magnets for men with dismissive attachment styles so as much I can relate to the pain of knowing a BPDer and cutting them off.. I've seen it be painfully obvious that many of the men on that sub have maladaptive behaviors and are just blind to it as they point the finger at their 'bitch ex' The ones with multiple bpd exes are my fave lol

We all have an attachment style, some of them clash horribly in relationships and I swear half the posts on bpdlovedones are just that issue and not bpd.

A year ago I was chatting with a man online, it was some anon chatroom. Anyways, I told him about a funny hookup story I had, it all seemed fun. Then he told me that when his aunt comes over, her daughter sleeps besides him because not enough rooms and they've been friends since childroom and then he fucking starts telling me how he molests his cousin in her sleep, like touching her chest and her butt while she is asleep. I just tell him to fuck off with that, about to disconnect and he starts making fun of me for being a whore and sleeping with men, and trying to one up me by saying I am much more grosser than him. Puke emoji after puke emoji at ME! I am not the one molesting my family member. I stopped talking to him but it still disturbs me to think about how he really did not see how wrong he was because he 'didn't have a girlfriend so I have to take whatever chance I get'.

Oh lord the mobile chat room stories I have.

My absolute FAVORITE was this "girl" who came in out of no where with obviously stolen emo girl pics. She said she was going to have heart surgery soon. In the span of 5 days, I shit you not, she had 6 or so after life experiences, and was on mobile chatting while being prepped for the surgery. She logged out for about 30 minutes and her "brother" with obviously stolen vampire emo boy pics logged into the room and said she had died. Then she came back under the same username a week later like nothing had happened.

Had an old guy say he was chatting while at his sons funeral, then described how his son committed suicide. Next day, naw, that didn't happen.

Had someone say they were having a miscarriage in their 2nd trimester while hiding under their kitchen table from their spouse. When asked, why not call 911.. "no it's not that big of a deal, the miscarriage will stop soon and it will be ok"

Had a guy catfishing under a couple profiles. He got busted because he answered a dm to one account as another account. When he was called out his defense was "How can I have multiple accounts going, my computer is downstairs, and I'm upstairs".

2000-2010 mobile chat was fucking wild. I could go on for pages.

So there are many options here but I'll offer a couple. Just a note this is all in the context of US work relations.

If you want a more soft approach, when asked the question "What are your salary expectations?", something like this might work: "Well, right now in my current position I'm making X per year, so obviously I'd hope to make more than that." This kind of puts the ball back in their court. They will throw out a higher figure - I think generally the standard is 5-10% raise (50k becomes 55k-60k) if you're moving from one company to another. Then you can either accept their offer or say "I was actually thinking something like X might be more appropriate."

A harder approach would to answer the salary question very directly with something like, "Right now I'm looking to make at least X, I can't go lower than that at this time." It depends on your field but IME they will usually accept it right there if your figure is within reason for your position/area/experience. My personal thought is that (1) it's a nerve wracking interaction on both ends of the negotiation so the sooner it ends, the better. (2) The employer has more respect for the person that knows their worth and is confident enough to ask for it directly. It also gives the impression you know what you're doing, even if you don't lol.

It is especially important to know your worth. In general you can't expect a business to define that for you because a business by definition exists to turn profit, which means finding the cheapest labor possible. You can look at the Bureau of Labor Statistics to get an idea of what others in your field are making, but also need honest with yourself about how well you do your particular work, the general "demand" for your skills, and what you really have to offer your potential employer.
