The people in this thread don't really like her, but I've always been a fan. im probably just attached bc she reminds me of me when i was younger + her content helped me through a hard time in my life.

I agree she can be kind of cringy + her arts /beg/ tier, but her actual studies + schoolwork has a lot of technical skill, to the point I wonder if she just… chooses to do the edgy anime-esque stuff because she likes it.

I guess i find her refreshing? she doesnt feel the need to be 'edgy' while also making… edgier art, if that makes sense.

Knowing doctors, it really is a miracle that most of them don't kill the majority of their patients

No. 489248

I'm more of a spiritualist agonistic and skeptic who teeters between some level of believing and non believing. After being forced to go to private Christian school as a kid, even one of the more accepting branches (episcopal) I've hated organized religion since I was about 12 years old. Something about the idea of having to go to a physical church to pay respects to something you don't even know exists just grosses me out, but the actions of certain religious organizations / the proselytizing is what really gets me. The fact that so many churches are discriminatory and holier than thou and honestly don't follow the principles of the Bible itself at all are what makes me despise organized religion as much as I do, I guess. I always found sermons incredibly boring to begin with but I'm at the point where at times when I think there might be a deity that I think I shouldn't have to give money or swear allegiance to have faith in anything, it's stupid to do so. Religion as an organized sect has never done anything but disappoint me. Frankly I don't understand people whose social lives hinge on the circle they form in a place as absurd and as honestly creepy as a church. And I never will. I'll wear religious iconography sometimes in form of angel necklaces / pins that i inherited from my grandmother, but in all honestly I find the idea of churches/churches running charities pretty repugnant even if I consider myself antagonistic spiritualist. I seriously don't like churches/the idea of forming a social circle of people around religion.

>“I think that a glass ceiling has been broken. If we listen to the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, then we might conclude that there is a kind of reflection. Because there is no doubt that the Church has known about this problem and has put a lot of effort into making sure that the victims would never receive the proper assistance they were entitled to”, stresses Rosati, a lawyer experienced in representing victims of abuses committed by members of the clergy."

I see many threads on here venting about mental illness, but how many of you are working to overcome them and the obstacles they bring? What are your personal goals for this year and long-term, what are your goals for today? What have you done to get there?

Post your achievement, no matter how small: from getting up to take a shower, to applying for your dream job.
Share your current progress inspire other anons so they can better themselves.

One rule: No advice.
This is a listening thread with no judgement, similar to Alcoholics/Narcotics/Codependents Anonymous.
The goal is that no one knows each other or holds each other accountable; we're just stating what we would LIKE to happen, and figuring out what steps we need to take to ACTUALLY achieve this.
Some may realize their goals are not realistic or are too overwhelming for their current situation. By not judging or giving advice, we're allowing anons to change their minds, to evaluate, to make progress freely on their own accord.

I'm finally going to therapy for my many issues.
Tomorrow I have a second appointment. I stress the fuck up cause what if I don't know what to say?
Also what do I do when I finish talking and the therapist stares at me for a minute or two, it's very stressful to me. Do I stare at my knees? I ruined my first attempt at therapy cause it made me babble just to stop the silence and the therapist thought I always constantly talk when I have the opposite problem (socially mute retard).

I cannot believe it's been almost a year since I wrote this. My big goals have almost been fully accomplished. I can eat leftovers now, to an extent. I also got a new job where I'm walking at least a mile a day and I'm driving half of the time.
One of the biggest things that's helped me throughout all this is exercise. It's so, so crucial even though my job requires walking. Skipping going once a week to the gym can seriously affect my mood and how well I handle the sensations. I don't even do much, I just go on the elliptical for about 15 minutes and then fuck around in the weight room lifting 10-35 pounds on different machines. Feeling excused from exercising gives the anxiety less power. I'm considering going to Zumba classes, which are free with my membership, but they're usually during times I'm probably sleeping.
Anyway, I'm still going to therapy, I see her about once a month now and she says I'm doing an excellent job and can see such an improvement.
My next goal is to start brushing my teeth again using toothpaste, and doing it consistently. The minty sensation and bitter taste triggers PTSD and I know this is one battle that needs to be accomplished. Water flossing and just using a wet toothbrush with nothing on it can only do so much. I do worry about my dental health. So, that's next on the list. Time to challenge myself and I know for sure it's the right time to start.

Plan it out of course! I'm not saying write up a speech and memorize, just while you have the time jot down the things that come to mind which are bothering you. You'll be able to organize your thoughts more and also not panic and fumble for words or examples during your appointment. Not like they'd refuse your writing down some stuff you want to talk about - as for what to do after you finish talking, it's perfectly fine to avert eye contact and stare at the floor or wherever you want.

Didn’t see a thread for this, so I thought I would give it a shot. Discuss contemporary art of the last 100 years- what you like, what you think garbage, and everything in between. All styles, movements and genres welcome.

Contemporary art could be broadly defined as art shown in galleries and museums as opposed to commission commercially, but a certain amount of overlap definitely exists.

This is separated from the game industry discussion/Illustration art salt thread.

I know that for example some men with same-sex sexual abuse in their childhood will go on to be quite anti-gay. Hard to blame someone when there's trauma involved. That trauma needs addressing though.

The most traumatising things to happen to me were always at the hands of straight men and I'm nervous of men in general now. Don't hate them but I'm a nervous wreck

Takes about 6 months or faster if you dedicate yourself to it, with all the dirty little tricks included. It will leave you a soulless husk though and you will never trust social media again afterwards.

I hate most people who own dogs.

They are loyal, fearless creatures, man's protector, willing to give their life for yours at any second. They are dumb, but the best bodyguard you will ever have.

But some people. They should really just have cats. It's the tiny dogs that bother me.
First of all, is it even possible to train a chihuahua. They all seem like they're in the midst of a constant existential crisis.

Yorkies, if untrained, will bark forever. Endlessly. There is no escape from the barking. You want to tell the in-laws, "Hey, please stop yelling, he thinks you're barking too," but you know they wouldn't listen. It's none of your business. You casually ignore the poop on the floor, and leave with a headache.

Some dogs are assholes with teeth. I knew a doberman who tried to kill a baby. But I also knew a graceful old man yorkie, who was kind and careful with his barks. Kind of like humans. There just needs to be more awareness on how to train them.

Last week my boyfriend was talking about how he was getting bored of staying in when I come over (which I’ve complained about over a month ago just to be told that I was demanding too much of him to entertain me), and we both have off work on Wednesday so I mentioned we could go walking on a paved trail nearby, it’s going to be in the 50sF°, sunny, etc. his immediate response was “we can do whatever you want to do Wednesday, I can’t promise I’m not going to be tired tho”. Fucking hell, he’s never too tired after work to do boy shit with his friends for 8 hours, but as soon as I bring up something I’d like to do he’s predicting two days ahead that he’ll be tired. Additionally, this is going to be the only time I see him this week since we’re BOTH working more hours than usual, fucking reeeeee

if neither of you guys are happy just break up with him, why do you want to spend time with someone that finds you boring? I mean he will always have excuses if he doesn't enjoy your company anymore, if someone likes you they will find whatever excuse to spend time together, I mean sure its okay for both of you to have your own me time but when you barely see each other and the time you do he gets bored of you I think its time to call it quits
