I'm starting this vent thread off with a English rant.

i'm so fucking sick of shitty tourists and oblivious people on the tube. People who don't get off the train to allow people to get off and instead block the doors when around 25 people need to shove their way past is infuriating. People who move allll the way down inside the carriage for 1 stop and then shove their way back out. People who walk slowly down the platform in groups so you can't get past them. People who don't have their oyster card ready to go before hitting the barriers.

I swear to fucking God I'm going to push somebody in front of a train.

This is honestly so goddamn dumb but I'm bummed about the accusations against Matt Lauer and him getting fired from the Today Show. Maybe it's because Today is my go-to morning show for the past, like, 7 or 8 years? He's really the only person that has been accused of sexual misconduct recently that I actually kind of liked.


But, I commend the people that speak up about situations like this. It takes a lot of courage, especially against someone who's way high-up in the hierarchy of NBC personalities, to do so.

I felt an oncoming headache almost the entire day so I decided to down some kratom tea. I originally bought the stuff bc my bf is allergic to literally every painkiller under the sun, and this stuff works kind of like a stim/opioid and it's real good pain relief.

But it's so…fucking…bitter. Like the worst unsweetened matcha imaginable.
I've tried grinding fresh ginger, honey, and lemon into the tea and bleh. Not working. Some people do shakes but that seems tedious, and others worse just pop a spoonful and wash it down with water.

I didn't finish my cup but my headache is already gone. I just wish there was a way to make it enjoyable.

I feel the same about the allegations against Garrison Keillor. A Prairie Home Companion was a huge part of my childhood, it sucks to hear all this.

Something I'm less surprised about is Morrissey defending Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. He said some really disgusting stuff… Haven't seen many people talking about it, but I guess I don't associate with people who like him anyways.

Depending on my mood, I mix kratom with either fruity drink mixes or hot cocoa mix and milk. Not the best option if you don't want extra sugar, but it definitely masks the taste.

I'm so fucking drunk and angry right now. Today was a fucking shit day, and it's the first day that I told myself I would eat healthy full meals and not just drink. Lately every single day I've come home from work and just downed a bottle of wine and tonight was no different.

But fuck tonight was more horrible than usual. I've already pulled out multiple large chunks of hair, and punched my cheekbones which is what I do when I'm really upset. I try not to because I know that's fucking pathetic but I just don't have any other healthy coping mechanisms anymore and I can't bring myself to care enough to stop when it's in the moment and I just want to punish myself. I'm just so fucking angry and disillusioned with everything and I really wish I would just kill myself already. I can't even function in real life anymore because I'm so depressed and every time I think things can't get worse, they do. Literally everything is fucking terrible. Reading the news is basically masochistic for me at this point, especially with all the sex scandals like I'm not even sure why the fuck I'm still surprised at how much the world despises women. I want ot cut my fucking tits off and lose as much weight as possible so that i'm no longer obviously a woman. Fuck that.

The world and everyone in it is just so fucked and not worth it. Nothing is worth it. I can't wait to fucking die holy shit. I'm just afraid of fucking up any suicide attempt I may make, I've already done it once and it made me feel like even more of a filure that I couldn't even kill myself alreayd.

Like holy fuck what a miserable stupid piece of shit I must be if I can't even figure out how to end my own life. Stupid cunt worthless piece of trash. Someone snipe me from a tall building and blow my fucking head off already. Thanks in advance.

I'm beginning to second guess getting engaged to my boyfriend. He's like borderline "woke" black man and a fan of Tariq Nasheed. Which does not sit well with me. I don't want to start a family with someone who like that. But at the same time, he's genuinely super nice to me and ask for my insight on things. He been helping me lose weight too. So, really, I'm just stuck. I want to help him see the world in a different, healthier light but I don't want to come off as indoctrinating. All in all, I'm just really confused.

You can lose weight on your own, and there's plenty of guys out there who will be nice and respectful towards you. Don't waste your life trying to train people into a path that suits you, it won't work. Just find a guy that's on your level with stuff like that.

Tell me I'm a piece of shit.

I'm in a LDR and I resent my bf for many things he did when we were broken up. But I got back with him because we weren't together when they happened and because I see a future with him.
I love him a lot and we plan on getting together once we get our financial life straight. We've been together for years. Lately he's been having problems that are beyond my control, and wasn't giving me attention or communicating with me.
Anyway, long story, short story… Two years ago when I wasnt with my bf, I made a friend (also online) who ended up getting romantically involved with me. And we ended up talking again yesterday after over a year without contact. And we sexted yesterday. A fucking lot.
I feel horrible and I wanna die. The worst part is that I don't wanna dump him (the friend), but I don't wanna stay without my bf either. I'm a fucking monster and I deserve to die. Just to make things worse my bf just got back to normal and everything is happy and perfect again, so I can't even fool myself saying I am feeling this way because he's not treating me right. What should I do?

No. 213546

I just need a place to write everything down and I feel like if I do it on social media it's always considered as attention whoring while the only thing I need right now is a big hug.

I just came back from the veterinarian with my 18 year old cat. She had trouble breathing for a while now but she still seemed like her normal self.
Anyways they found a big tumour right next to her lung and she needs to be put to sleep tomorrow.
I'm just a mess right now. I had her since she was a baby. She would always sleep in my bed and is just the cutest cat alive.
I know that putting her to sleep is the best choice since I hear how she is struggling to breathe but knowing that tonight will be the last time she will sleep in my bed is just the worst.
I knew that sooner or later she will die but I had always hoped that won't be until she's 20 or so.
It just breaks my heart.

I don't know what to write down to make you feel better. If you were next to me I would give you the biggest hug.

I have a cat, she's young and also always sleeps right next to me, on bed, next to my pc. I found her abandoned in a carton box, wet from rain when she was extremely little, barely few weeks old, smaller than the palm of my hand, and I can't even imagine the pain of losing her.

I'm so terribly sorry you have to go through this. The only consolidation is that she probably had a great human companion that cared for her and she had a decent life.

I recently had to put down 17 y.o dog, and few months earlier my kitten died.
We rescued the dog from near death situation. It really helped me to not look at the death of his, but the life. Think about how lucky your cat was that she had a loving home. How good her life was. What a long life she lived, happily! In comfort, warmness, with her belly full. She's leaving, but that's how things are - it's sad, but that's nature of the existence. She's old and ready to go.
When I compared my dog's situation with my kitten, I felt that it was only fair. A long happy life, and a merciful death. So many animals don't have that privilege. Be proud of yourself - you gave her a great time on our Earth, I'm sure of that.

I look in the mirror - ok
I take a pic on my front camera - ok
I take a normal pic/someone takes a pic of me - my face is asymetrical af, my teeth are crooked, huge nose, new face who the fuck dis?

It triggers me so much. I know it's because I'm used to the mirrored image of myself, I see the other rarely so it spooks me blabla, but I can't believe how different it looks. The huge difference makes me anxious, because people see the side that looks weird. The ugly crooked side. It started to bug me really hard, I was feeling finally ok with my looks until I noticed that. Like when I see pictures others take of me I'm so confused and lost, because it's not how I perceive myself. I feel like my brain in order to protect me falsifies the vision I have of myself when I look in the mirror.
I may be falling in the deep shitpit of insecurities again because of that, and it's such a step back. For such a shitty reason!! Ugh.

I get the green Maeng Da. Also friendly word of caution: start out with no more than a gram. The thing is if you dose too much you could get nauseated or get the shakes.

I have a similar insecurity except when other people take my picture my face looks wider and my double chin is worse than usual. Idk, I've gotten over it because I figure if that's how other people see me then there's nothing I can do.
Yet I think what makes me more uncomfortable with it, is how accessible unflattering pictures are on social media. It used to be the case in the 90s and early 00s that you could expect embarrassing candids and bad pictures to never leave someone's photo album.
But now it's like they're on the internet for every person to see.

As a rule, I like to ask friends if a picture is okay to post if I suspect it's a bit unflattering for them as a courtesy.

I kinda miss the times I would go back home straight after class and just watch anime and post on /a/ or hang on Mumble with internet friends.
Now I'm constantly either at work, in class or studying, or doing extracurricular shit that puts a big load of pressure on me.
Granted a big part of that pressure is self inflicted because I try to do too much stuff and have it all be perfect, and never feel like I'm doing enough.
And I'm still grateful I have all this stuff to do, it keeps me busy and I'm sure I won't regret not wasting my time too much in a few years… But still I look forward to having less stuff to worry about. Not guaranteed that'll happen though I suppose.

Thanks…I have been before (years ago) and it never helped much. But I got up today and had another episode just pure anger and self hatred and ended up slamming my closet door against the wall and it left a huge hole in the wall and the little doorstop thing left a hole in the bottom of the door.
I live with my parents since I just graduated with a dumbass degree and my job is shitty right now so when they see this I know they will force me to go back to therapy or just kick me out.

Thanks for the advice but I really don't deserve a happy life, especially not after what I just did. The fact that I can't even hold it in anymore is pathetic and now I've devolved to fucking property damage. It's ridiculous, I'm ridiculous, and if I were smart I would just kill myself before my dad gets home later today.

God I hate it when cheaters do this stupid 'bawww I feel bad' tripe. Obviously love if you felt an ounce of real remorse you wouldn't have done it in the first place, and if you cared even a little bit about your boyfriend you supposedly love you would've stopped before it went too far. It's not like your finger accidentally fell on the keyboard and typed 'my fanny is so wet for u rn' fucking is it? And you even admit to have done it 'a lot' so you could've stopped it if you wanted, but you didn't. Plus the fact that you don't want to dump your friend despite all this says a lot about the kind of person you are.
You know perfectly well what you're supposed to do - dump them both, for their sakes, because they deserve better. But you don't want to do it because you don't actually care about it and you don't really feel bad, you're just throwing yourself a little pity party to look better in your own eyes and are going to resume two-timing as soon as you're done, I guarantee it. You don't actually want advice nor will you actually follow it, you'll just scream into the void for a while and bawww about it on the Internet where it's safe then go about your day as usual.

I have a old cat I've had for a super long time as well anon. Her health problems are getting slowly getting worse(some manageable others it's just "if it starts causing her pain then you know what has to happen"). Some neighbors dumped her and she was so starved we thought she was a baby at the time. No exact age because of that but the bare minimum is she's about 12-14 years and I've had her since I was 10. I know her time is coming

I don't know how you got her when she was a baby but you may have saved her from a life possibly full of suffering. I know other anons have already said it but you gave her the best time you could and I've seen too many cats(and other animals) that don't get to feel love until they're close to death, if at all. She's always in your heart and you can still love her without her physically being with you as lame as that sounds.

It's awful but remember, sometimes you gotta love a pet enough to know when living is too hard on them and that it's time to let go.

Not all guys have a lust for teenagers for the same reason not all women have a lust for teenagers. There are perfectly well-adjusted men out there who crave emotional maturity, intelligence, and experience in a partner. My bf being one of them.

Yet why are you still with this guy? You resent him and you don't even have the proximity for him to give you the attention you need. He flat out wasn't communicating with you. Tell them both that you need a break and you need to figure out what you require in a relationship, and what you're able to sacrifice and what you're not.

I have an essay due and I'm trying to do it but I'm struggling, my boyfriend will want to see me this weekend but I really need to get it finished.

I'm sorry to hear about the assault. In my last year of uni I also had anxiety I thought I was over resurface from a past abusive experience. It felt so irrational but in the end I reached out to an online survivors service and they reassured me it was normal to be triggered in stressful times.
You can always come here to talk but maybe you could look up online email support or see if your uni has a counseling service?

I've been having reoccurring dreams involving my ex from 6 yrs ago. We haven't talked in years, and we were really bad for each other at the time, but these dreams are relentless. It's always sweet, warm, comforting feelings. When I wake up it makes me miss him, and I wish I could just stop having these dreams because they're messing with my waking emotions because I seriously did not think of him before these dreams. I have a boyfriend who I love now, and it's really distressing me and I don't know why.

I fucking despise my insomnia; its absolutely humiliating to tell your boss that you can't go to work because you havent slept. I do very well at the job I have because I haul ass no matter what, but im still embarassed and angry whenever I have to send a text to my job in a haze at 5am that I can't make it cause im still awake. Plus after a while peoples reactions start looping like the dialogue of an NPC and its so difficult to not get an attitude when people ask redundant shit like "have you tried Vitamin D, Melatonin etc" or the ever classic joke "Oh have you been up all night gaming hurrhurr"
I get it comes with good intentions(mostly) and im always kind when I reply because how the hell would they know my background story anyways. It just sucks complete ass and I feel like a tremendous shitbag because I can't just do a normal basic task thats detrimental to all around health both physically and mentally.

I seriously don't get how people cheat and not realize its fucked up. There are so many steps involved in all of this and at none of them you stopped and said no. You could have said no when things were getting flirty, you could have stopped when you straight up started talking about sex, hell you could have even stopped during the middle of it. But at every step, you decided to continue forward. On top of that you have the audacity to complain that you don't want to cut contact with this guy when you fucked up on such a fundamental level.

If you want to try to continue the relationship, you need to be fucking honest with him and tell him what you did. You need to acknowledged that any trust he has towards you may be permanently damaged despite however much you try to fix things and that he may dump you anyways.

I've been in one almost four years now and we've only physically met a few times since we live in different countries and it's pretty hard to coordinate. It doesn't upset me, I'm not miserable. Phone calls, video, text conversations are enough to satisfy me. Of course I wanna be with physically but I dont know, physical touch isn't something important to me and and I don't feel bothered by its absents. I see people talking about how hard and painful LDRs are d I just don't get it. I feel like I'm the only one on the world who feels this way and its frustrating.

It's weird that you see a huge nose when other people take a pic of you from a distance… Usually it's the front camera that enlarges the nose because of the darn fisheye effect.
Maybe it depends on the camera? I usually look like shite with Samsung cameras because they usually have such a shit lighting, while with a professional Canon/Nikon I see the same image of me I see in the mirror.
Or maybe it's the fact that the way our faces look depends on the light. I see big changes with different lights.
Either way almost everyone is asymmetrical, and it's always kind of a shock to see ourselves in a non-mirrored image, but just think of the fact that other people don't perceive you nearly as bad as you do because they've always seen the non-mirrored you. You're just not used to it, like when we hear our voices in recorded audios and say "Is this my real voice? It's so weird"

I have moderate GAD (diagnosed recently although I previously had mild anxiety it got worse) and BED (Just adding this in for bg knowledge)…

In October, I randomly started having some weird fears that I dont actually like this guy I like and Im fake etc. and start questioning everything about me… Ive had a crush on my friend for a year and just last week or the week before I was thinking romantically about him like I typically do. NOW I am at a point where I feel liek im starting to see him more as a friend way realizing after he rejected me 2 times, that clearly he doesnt feel the same way and were good as friends… Anyway theres this random dude in one of my classes and I dont feel attracted to him or feel like we have much in common… I dont even talk to him much either except 4 shortly in class if hes actually there, but some of my friends seem to think he likes me… Typically, when a guy likes me i tend to have no interest in them (bc I usually just dont liek them anyway? guys i like dont like me and anyway theres no actual proof this particular guy likes me). ANYWAY despite all thsi lately I have been having these weird fears like that something will happen between this or that I will like him, etc. Like literally??? I feel like my brain keeps stirring up ideas that I personally dont agree with, but I cant stop thinking strange thoughts like this and its so confusing to me… Lately I also have random fears that I will get hit by a car (and cant stop thinking about it), will hit someone with my car by accident, will get schizophrenia, etc.. Like I keep having all these random thoughts and I feel like im going crazy. I am finally seeing my psychologist Wednesday (I have only seen her twice) and I wanna tell her this stuff but im really scared I guess that she will judge me even though I usually dont care what ppl think… However these thoughts are ecxhausting me, causing me random stomach pains, triggering my BED, and I have just been crying/feeling overwhelmed/unable to focus too often now. I just want these thoughts to end.. Can anyone relate or like anything? I feel so alone and like no one experiences this esp bc I keep going on Google to try and search if anyone has spoken about this before…

I've had such shitty relationships and overall interactions with men for a long time. I recently had a traumatic experience that was the last straw. At the point I can't imagine myself in a relationship with a man and I don't find any pleasure imagining it. It's kind of a good thing because it let me realize my attraction to women, but I feel dysfunctional and lonely at times. I still have this distant hope that there will be one good man to love, but then I remember men have made me feel worse than anything else in my life.

I'm sure they take advantage of women who have obvious flaws thinking they can get to them by using their insecurities.
Kinda felt that way when I was growing up overweight. It's like guys knew that I knew I was fat and harassed and approached me more thinking that the slightest thing they said would provoke an interaction from me bc I must've been desperate for it. And if i became offended and they got rejected then hey, I was just the fat girl and I should be so lucky they gave my ugly ass the time of day. Negs like that happened to me a lot.

For some reason, my period this month is making me feel the exact opposite of literally any other month out of the 10 years I've had it. Typically I'm tired and moody, but for some god awful reason I'm way too wired, chipper, and cannot sleep for more than three hours at a time. It sucks so hard. I'd rather feel tired during the day than have restless sleep during the evening. I look tired and my eyes are bloodshot without eye drops, but I just cannot make myself sleep.

I want a partner but I can’t even make friends. I’m so lonely that anyone I tell about it has heard it from me so often that they don’t know what to say anymore. I just want to give up but I’m not sick enough to kill myself. I haven’t done laundry outside of my bathtub in four months. I only see my therapist once a week and she wanted me to start an intensive outpatient group therapy three times a week but I was too depressed to even get that organized even though she’s been trying to get me to for months. A few minutes ago I told an internet friend I talk to daily that I was feeling depressed again and he made a joke. I want to be taken seriously. I need attention and idk what to do anymore.

I am so sad and mad and pissed and furious right now.

One of my coworkers is pregnant. She is leaving in 2 months. She has been showing up late (without telling anyone), leaving early, not picking up our normal work duties, forgetting to do basic things that has been causing a ton of extra stress and work for me, and then I recently found out (we share computers and she left her tabs open) that she has been going on facebook, pinterest, mom forums, and shopping websites while working.

I have been getting 0 breaks when I have been working with her for months now, and feeling pretty ragging most of the time. There are only two of us working at at time (small office), so if I say anything to my boss, it will obviously be me who complained.

But at the same time, I really like her as a person. She is really sweet. I just feel like I am being taken advantage of and doing damn near everything. I feel so exhausted when I get home that I have been needing to rest each weekend and hate being at work, I am dreaming of quitting too.

I just went through some major health issues and am having a lot of problems with my husband who is so depressed he is trying to hurt himself (he is in treatment but it is going slow), my pet is sick, we are stressed about money… I often get barely any sleep and feel terrible, but I STILL show up to work and work hard.

Everyone, my coworkers who come in on other days, my boss and other higher ups, etc, have been getting mad at me about miscommunications too, which are only happening because of her.

I just want to cry. I don't know what to do. Living with this for 2 more months feels like it will kill me.

Things I'm salty about:

Bf kept sticking his feet off from the loveseat and kicking our Christmas tree while he was playing video games. Now the side of the tree where he was kicking isn't lighting. Which means he either jiggled some wiring or a lightbulb went out.
It triggers my ocd each time I fucking look at it now, and it's a pre-lit, flocked fake tree and idk how I'm going to fix those damn lights bc he sure as shit won't do it.

I had a friend stay at our place for like a month because she got kicked out suddenly by her ex and didn't have a place lined up straight away. She dumped a bunch of her stuff into our storage unit and around my apartment so she wouldn't have to buy a unit herself. Instead of saving her stock money and considering moving back home, she signed on to a place with her friends for roommates and blew a bunch of money on crap she didn't need. She suddenly required a hospital stay and now her friends are backpedaling saying that she should just move back home since she won't have the money for rent.
What makes me irritated is that a bunch of her shit is still here and it kind of is asking a lot since we don't have a lot of room. She hasn't asked about the stuff since October. Her friend even dropped shit off here that she never came back to get (it was cheap dollar store crafts and shit, into the trash it went!)
I'm thinking of hawking a couple of things I know she won't miss or won't inquire about, because my bf had a rough month and we're the ones low on the cash now. She has this coffee gift box of a particular brand name that I'm thinking of selling. No idea how much it goes for but I'm starting to feel less guilty for thinking it as time goes by…

And honestly, I know the last part makes me sound shitty but when I thought I was helping somebody I didn't agree to be someone's dump for their garbage.

If it bothers you he should be taking that into consideration, and if he doesn’t… what does that tell you about the value he has for your feelings?

I know how it feels to be insecure about that kind of thing, but (assuming he's as good a guy as you say and not an asshole), you gotta trust him on that. Trust is a pretty fundamental part of relationships. If you have a good reason not to believe what he says you should get out though.

Food…

Why is food so difficult. I do not mean this in an Ana way either.
I've never had self esteem problems regarding my weight. I'm the average as of now. It is so hard to eat because when I get depressed (which is often) I have no desire to eat. I already feel full when I'm depressed. I could go a day or two without eating. This use to be a bigger problem a few years ago. I was so depressed and lost alot of weight. I had to have been about 105lbs, around there and my usual is 133 which is normal for my height. I only had noticed the weight when my friend got extremely worried, of course like I said… I don't have an ED, I had no problem eating food when I realized what was really happening and with a little support I had my head on straight, come to find out that I had been becoming light headed and losing hair not only from that, but a few deficiencies as well.

I now have no friends. I have become increasingly depressed and I can already see my appetite changing with my increasing depression. I'm scared, I'm worried. I don't talk to my boyfriend because I feel like a weight with my emotions. Anytime I've talked to him about my depression, he says nothing but go to the doctor and get meds.

Getting meds I've wanted to do but my father has always been very disapproving of any medication like that or therapy. I'm old enough, I'm an adult and can make my own decisions however I can't do anything without being questioned about details of my life.

I have alot brewing inside and I've been depressed for years and had a few close calls. I don't know what to do anymore anons. Any advice or a little push with words I think is what I need right now.

I know this isn't a huge deal but psych meds and birth control made me gain 20 pounds. I'm completely off both but I'm wondering if staying on the birth control would have benefited me, my period is extremely irregular. But I just can't deal with the weight gain, I feel like a fat whale.

My boss is an insufferable cunt
Since my family have pushed me to be focused on getting a good education before worrying about money this is my first ever job at 20 years old. It's basically an internship thats part of my uni degree.

Don't get me wrong, i love the work i'm doing and i'm having a blast but my boss is gross.

He sits right next to me and eats food with his mouth fully open and you can hear every particle of food being digested in his mouth

guy next to be is similar in age, he's a cool guy and we get along quite well. He codes so the boss is always down his throat to make some "flappy bird rip off" or "piano tiles rip off" (i work in games dev).
This boss has not 1 original bone in his entire body and it pisses me off because we have a team of amazingly talented people but he is so lazy he forces them to re-skin an already made game.
Anyway the guy next to me works really hard, the boss at least once a day walks behind him and complains about a part of code that is "broken" even though it's not. He has 3 people telling him it's not broken at all and he will not accept it and talks down to him all the time. He compares him to his also insufferable kids. "my kids can do that and they're KIDS"

He has brought is kids to work a handful of times and his kids are the same, they're about 10-12 years old. Talk over people who are trying to help them and talk down to anyone they think has more knowledge than them. He's brought his wife into the office too and his wife sits in the corner of the room swearing at everything.

Too top it all off he's always staring at my chest if i'm talking to him. It's a casual office so everyone is in a tshirt and jeans, including me. I've never once shown more than half a collarbone in that office and he just stares at my 2 sizes too big shirt im wearing.

There's nothing that can be done about this i just needed to vent, at least this job is temporary and i'm getting decent pay.

Boss was pissed for paying a full time employee who didn't show up for almost 6 whole months so he took it out on me of course. And after that he admitted he'll never hire a mid twenties woman again because of that. I bet future employers will think that of me too even though I don't plan on ever having kids :/ sucks

I'm similar to you Anon. When I get into a depressed state, I have no desire to eat, either… and as someone in the underweight range it's definitely not a fun thing to go through.

I basically force myself to eat literally anything, usually bread or a few apple slices–something, because I know I need it. Or, even easier (but it can start to get sort of expensive after awhile), is to have, like, SlimFast or a nutritional drink so you're getting vitamins and such in. I found drinking some sort of meal substitute to be easier than trying to force myself to eat when I would fall into one of those cycles. That sounds like shitty ana talk, but they are better than going without eating anything.

It really is hard when the most I can guarantee myself sometimes is breakfast, you just have to push through it. I know that's shit advice, but that's what I try to do for myself because, like you, my parents don't approve of medication for things of that nature and I don't want to burden others with my problems.

I've had this one internet friend for around 3 years now, but she just gets on my nerves as of late. I don't find much joy in talking to her anymore, and she consistently ignores me when I tell her keeping all her feelings inside is bad. I want to just stop talking to her, but I know she'll blame herself for it and hate herself even more. I don't want to leave her when she's in a bad place emotionally, but it feels like I talk to her out of habit. I feel like our friendship is so shallow. She won't discuss anything of substance with me, and any relationship where the person can't confine in one another doesn't seem meaningful. What's the least painful way to end this for her?

I'm feeling kinda down this month. I just got to know that my best friend got to share a booth at this super huge and popular anime con in my country with her ex-colleague. I'm really happy for her cuz we've been trying to apply for an art booth at that con for 4 years and failed each time to land a table because it's really hard for 'nobody-artists' to get a table there.

But I feel sorta sad as well because we had been dreaming and planning to get a booth at that con together since forever and now she has a chance at it but I don't. It's suppose to be just us two doing this art booth plan together but now I'm left in the dust.

I guess it's not her fault because her ex-colleague was the one who invited her to share their art booth. I dunno, guess I'm just disappointed that I couldn't join her after all the years of applying for the art booth together.

Another thing that I'm upset about is that I think deep down I no longer have the drive to continue improving on my art skills. I work full time now in a non-art related field, so I don't have the time to draw or post my art on social media anymore. It's sad because I've been drawing since I was in school and now due to a demanding job I just can't keep up with trying to improve my drawing skills and maintain an active social media presence. I feel very sad that I can't seem to keep up with other artists and stay stagnant. I also wish that I can just go back to drawing for fun and not try to compete with other new, young and popular artists on social media. But at the same time, I still dream to be a popular enough artist and have a group of artist friends (like an art circle or art group) that I can be in and go to anime cons together and set up art tables together and all that other happy art group activities. I've never been in an art group (except with my best friend but it's just us two so it doesn't count as an art group??) and get really depressed when I see popular artists on social media (especially instagram!) that know each other and go to cons together. I just want to belong!

I hate being in groups for anything. I know being in groups is supposed to be good for you, but I just don't like it. I either do all of the work, or I have nothing to contribute. It feels awkward standing at the outside of a group and having nothing to say. I feel like there's some type of wall seperating me from everyone else even though I'm only a few feet away. This goes for general conversations as well. I don't do much outside of community college, so I have nothing to talk about and it feels awkward.

Speaking of college, I have this report due today and I'm still slacking off. It's not I'm done with it, it's just stuff distracts me easily and it's not like I can help it. I have to be on the computer all of the time, so naturally I drift off and do other stuff. I just can't break my bad habits.

We've had a few encounters over the last few months since we met, but never really have more than surface level conversations. However recently he's been a liitle more talkative lately.

Anyways I recently made a nice gesture for him and he thanked me with a red heart emoji. Then a day later out of nowehere they said "they're glad there are people like me in the world." It was strange because I'm not sure if that was an off hand remark or a late follow up to the my previous gesture.

Gotta vent a little bit.
I've made a Friend (I guess? Idk we hang out once on a while during uni) who is definetly different from many of my other friends.
She has very leftish views (I guess that's how you say it?) Which I'm totally fine with I would consider myself liberal as well but not as much as her.
Anyways as I said I'm totally cool with that, and I actually like it when me and my friends have different views so we can have a nice, respectful discussion. I also like to talk about other ideas in discussions even tho they might not be my standpoint on things just to make it more interesting you know.

I feel like between friends it is important that you won't make the other person feel like garbage (if they have extreme views yeah whatever but obviously I wouldn't hang out with them in the first place).
Anyways we talked about stuff.
And there was a moment when we did not agree. But instead of trying to at least tell me why my views are "wrong" in a sense she just gave me this look. There was a really weird vibe around her. Like I could feel that she thought I was garbage (have seen this look before and after that she told me that someones opinion was plain stupid etc.)
And that still pisses me of.
I'm trying to be open and even tho I might not agree with her I still treated her with respect. So her giving me this look was just too much.
Anyways I don't really want to hang out with her right now because of that. Idk maybe I read too much into it. I don't really know her anyways.
But knowing that she won't take other peoples opinion because apparently hers is the only one is an attitude I really don't like.
Maybe I'll forget about it next week who knows.

I've noticed a lot of people take debates on their ideas as attacks on who they are. Like if you don't agree with someones conclusions about the world when they reached it through their own experiences, you're apparently denying their experiences or some nonsense like that.

Honestly I don't really get this new trend of refusing to talk about sensitive topics because people can't handle conflict, I'd rather just let the bridge burn than self censor because the person wants to spew their shit unopposed. If they're going to be insulting over this, does the relationship really have any depth to it anyways?

It's not like you go to the therapist x many times and suddenly you figure out all of your stuff, they're a tool to figure it out instead.

You're acknowledging the problem which is something in and of itself. I mean I have a lot of uncommon traits, and even then there are probably some people who are like 98% similar to me. It's just the way the world works. I think that's something to pursue next time you visit the therapist though for whatever its worth, why it's so important that you feel unique.

I've been in love with a pedophile for the past 7 years. My infatuation for him never died as much as I wish it did. For some backstory, he's been grooming me since I was 12 and up to the late age of 16. I know it's very disgustingly wrong, but I can't help feel like I belong to him even after all these years. I feel taken advantage of and I bottle all these emotions up. I wish I would've said something. That's all I have to write I guess.

This week somebody committed an arson attack at my riding stables. 15 horses perished in the fire. I've been completely heartbroken about it, but kept it to myself because it's not in my nature to share about my life much. I finally confided in a friend about what has happened, and the first thing he said to me was "How can you be upset if you're not a vegetarian". I can't believe how much that hurt me on top of what I already felt.

I was supposed to go to an interview today but as I woke up I just got so much anxiety and felt like vomiting so I didn't go. I feel like a piece of shit.
I know I should've sucked it up and been a fucking adult because just saying I had anxiety feels like I'm trying to excuse myself. I'm trying so hard to not let myself feel like a victim but at the same time there's a relief that I didn't waste time and money to just get denied.

Thank you both, it's been a very tough week and while my own horse was okay, several of my friends lost theirs and they've been grieving strongly. An investigation is taking place although no leads yet, though I've heard a riders ex-boyfriend is now a suspect and if he is the one accountable acting out of some bitter revenge, I can't imagine how that rider will feel.

It has been comforting to see our local community pull together this week though - thousands have donated money for vet bills and resources for the surviving horses. But this incident has been a painful reminder that evil people can be anywhere.

Not vegan, but he is vegetarian. What was so shocking about his reaction was that he has been a vegetarian for about a year now but has never commented on my diet or pushed his lifestyle before. And I wouldn't mind if he felt strongly enough about it to talk to me about a vegetarian diet but fucking hell that was not the right time. Now I question how little he thinks of me…perhaps you're right and I should take a better look at our friendship.

I really hate when people talk to me personally about their problems. I usually don't have any friends so it's not an issue but recently I've been in this group and have had people messaging me about feeling suicidal/anxious/depressed and I can't empathize or sympathize at all. I just feel inwardly pissed off and make some generic comforting attempt while wishing they'd speak to someone else who can deal with it better. My whole life I've never been able to relate or empathize with others on a personal level, I have no clue how to respond to any sort of emotional shit and just feel annoyed when people burden me with it. It's not a problem on public anonymous sites, for instance in this thread I can feel sorry for a lot of the anons in shitty situations but when it's being said to me specifically that's when I can't feel anything.

I'm aware that it's awful and I want to change but I have no idea how to and it just makes me want to break off contact with people all together. But then when I go a long period of time without speaking to anyone I start to fantasize about having friends, then I make them and realize how much I hate it and the cycle starts again. Sorry for rambling and probably sounding really edgy but it's been bothering me as of late.

It's because you feel like if someone is talking to you about a problem specifically they're looking for either a solution or comfort, which you don't feel obliged to provide.

Ooooooh, I want to SCREAM NOW!!!

This never happens to me when I'm doing other things but every single time I think things have calmed down enough at night for me to masturbate and have a bit of sexy fun, either my mother or my brother or my aunt or even my goddamn cat open the door and nearly give me a heart attack!

It's so hard to continue after that, especially with my mom, the old hag just doesn't sleep at night and walks around like a ghost, sometimes my little creep brother also stays up and feels the need to sneak up behind me to "prank" me. Sometimes it's just the cat, but it still scares me to death.

Nobody knows how to knock, nobody knows what privacy is, I'm already as paranoid as it is when I'm doing it and need a few hours to get into the mood and really get into it but it totally kills it for me when they barge in unexpectedly and start bothering me with their chit chat just when I was getting to the good part, then I end up being turned off, angry and even more sexually frustrated than before.

My father has been living in another country for 5 years now. He left when my mother died due to a terminal disease, so I don't have any family left here (apart from my boyfriend's family, which they're super nice to me).
This Christmas he's coming home. He's been in my city before, maybe three or four times but not in Christmas.
What pisses me off is that he's always complaining about leaving (how the other country is shit compared to ours, how he can't stand his actual wife, how he wants to come here again), when the truth is that he left because he wanted to, and he already knew his wife is a crazy bitch (they argued all the time while he was here, nothing new).
Also, he's the type of man who thinks that people should be there for him now because he's coming here. As if he had to leave for obligation or something like that. It's my father and I love him, he's always telling that our plans this Christmas shouldn't be conditionated by him but when I tell him that maybe I'll be seeing my bf's family some days, he's acting all pasive-agressive about it.
He's all obsessed about what people think about him as a father and I totally understand it, I know he acted like a shitty father and I know that he should've stayed with me at least because even if my parents were divorced at that time, he was the only left for me. As I said, it's his hypocrisy what makes me so freaking mad.

I was told the relationship is mine to “ruin.” With that statement, my partner is shifting all the blame on me and acting like he is 100% blame-free since he apparently realizes his mistakes in physically, emotionally and verbally abusing me in the past. Just two days ago, he verbally abused me for merely expressing my emotions. His justification was that he was “mad” and “didn’t mean it.” I have constantly been feeling suicidal for the past couple of days due to how bad our fights have gotten. He said that my suicidal feelings are due to my traumatic past, further shifting any blame away from our relationship and from himself. I knew that what he said was just pure bullshit to avoid any accountability on his end but I accepted it anyways because there is no point in arguing back or speaking up anymore. In this relationship, all I can become is a doormat.

I know deep down that I need to leave him if I want to save myself. At the same time, I have struggled with depression my entire life and I think being in this relationship makes me feel like I am going to fulfill a death wish. I have already done some impulsive things that can be considered suicidal because of this relationship. For some fucked up reason, the idea of suicide comes off as romantic to me whenever I am seriously depressed because of how much I hate myself. I have been seeing a therapist for about two months who absolutely wants me to cease contact with him and I also went to a domestic abuse center when the suicidal thoughts were becoming overwhelming but I am still drawn to the idea of my self-destruction. I haven’t really told my therapist yet about these strong self-destructive, suicidal thoughts since they have only started to get worse lately so I will have to bring that up with her soon. I’m just honestly seriously feeling incredibly fucked up. It doesn’t help that he makes threats toward me whenever I have expressed wanting to leave which fucks with my anxiety. I guess more than anything, this is now becoming a battle between self-preservation and the my desire to self-destruct.

If there's one impulsive thing that you should do, it's that you should just leave, don't even say anything, don't even announce it beforehand or say goodbye or anything, I know it's easier said than done but it should be your number one priority because you will definitely be happier if you do. Please also tell your therapist about everything in detail, they are trained to deal with things like this, if you have friends or anyone else close to you then get them involved too.

I had to help clean my brothers house so he, his pregnant partner and my niece don’t go homeless and have to pay thousands to the landlord.

I’ve never been so fucking angry, it was disgusting I honestly can’t understsbd how anyone can live the way they were, mouse shit and piss all in the pantry and just everywhere, rubbish, dirty clothes, incredibly stained carpets, rotting food etc

I hand washed ALL of their dishes because they had not a single clean one and even had dirty dishes stacked in the cupboards which had mouse shit all throughout.

He won’t ever be greatful for what my Mother and I have done for him, no one else in the family knows what’s happening, so he basically can’t be held to what’s happened and will continue to treat myself and our Mother like shit because he is lazy, childish and a waste of space.

I talked to our coach asking to separate us and I'm not rowing with them ever again, which I'm glad for. But I get to row with teenagers again.

They have dampened the shine of my rowing experience. My club was my place of refuge from the idiots that surround me. Now they have infiltrated my club and are a majority in my age group. I feel like an outcast again even though it was me who shunned them. It felt so good to belong.

How do you know when you've become that one art friend that's being taken advantage of?
In my group of artist friends I was usually the least skilled one, and I acknowledged such. The others were popular artists in the fandom we were in and I always came up short – just admiring from afar.
They would get their share of haters, criticisms, etc. While I remained completely unknown.
Now things are…different. The more I practice and look up to more skilled artists, the better I've been getting – while those other friends that were better than me have stagnated in skill because they don't want to leave their comfort zones and what they know. I've…actually surpassed them I believe, in terms of skill and execution. I went from the one in the group that had to beg to draw things for the others for just a little recognition to the one that gets requests almost daily from them.
But it's…bittersweet? I'm starting to become paranoid now. Afraid that they're only friends with me because they want me to draw things for them or they pair their OCs with mine so I could draw them together.
A couple reasons I've gotten paranoid is because of a few messages one of the ones in the group sent to me. Basically offhand comments that are a nudge to my shoulder about drawing something for them under the guise of a good idea for me to draw or just playful banter followed with 'XD' for effect.
"I wouldn't say no to more drawings of (OC name)"
"I'd really like yo see (OC name) in your style! I love your art!"
"When are you gonna draw (OC name) and (My OC name) together?"
I don't know what to do now. Am I just paranoid? I'm not even that good of an artist so I don't understand why it's happening.

Oh my god I’m so fucking annoyed with my roommate. My boyfriend and I moved in with him a little over a year ago, he was my boyfriends casual friend in high school. Things aren’t as bad as they have been with him in the past but I’m already stressed with the holiday season and don’t need to take care of a 23 year old man on top of everything else. He’s so messy. Hell leave (my) plates and dishes and pots out for at least 2 days before washing them. He’ll spill things that I have to spend 30 minutes scrubbing to get out then say he didn’t spill it. Hell invite his friends over while the house is messy, will make it messier with his guests, then won’t pick up once they leave. He’s SO loud, and so obnoxious. Hell play video games until 2 am in our living room and talk loud enough for me to hear him as if he’s in the same room as me. You can’t have a conversation with him without him acting like he knows more about the topic, and he’ll interrupt you to correct you even though he doesn’t know shit about the topic. I have to ask him about once or twice a week to do something like wipe the counter after cooking or taking out his recycling. Every time I ask him to clean he does (a half assed job), but not after saying “oh yeah I was going to clean this yesterday but I got called into work/got picked up/went out”. Then why was it sitting like this for 4 days before I asked, and why do I have to ask you to clean your own messes in the first place. I’ve tried inviting mutual friends over after he trashed part of the house to try to shame him to clean but he doesnt feel shame apparently. Its easier to just clean up after him at this point otherwise my mental health will suffer because messes stress me out significantly. Easier to do it myself than ask him every single day. Today what has me pressed is the fact he built a new computer 2 weeks ago and all the boxes are just sitting in the dining room. I told him I’ll buy us some more garbage bags tomorrow so he can bag it up and he said he’s not throwing them away, he doesn’t know where he’s putting them yet. So what the fuck am I supposed to do, clean and put up Christmas decorations around 6 opened up and disheveled amazon boxes? What the fuck dude. I can usually tolerate him and I can’t wait until we can get a new roommate but it’s just too much to deal with right now.

I relate to this on so many levels and empathize with you completely.
I've roomed with three males during grad school, and am now living with my boyfriend. Your experiences remind me of my own.

What's especially frustrating is that not doing the chores and just letting things pile up (as many people suggest in these situations), is that it doesn't affect the culprits. Because they don't care in the first place, they'll gladly let trash pile until there's maggots.
The messes only affect clean and organized people like us who care about our dwellings.
Oh, oh, and my other favorite result of not picking up after the men is that if you complain later, they'll turn it around on you and point out how you've stopped working so why should they? That happened to me once when my ex roommates decided to leave me a double sink full of dishes as they left for spring break only to come back to find I had "saved" those dishes for them to do in a tub on the floor :) They proceeded to break my dishes we all used and claimed it was an "accident" out of spite whenever I didn't wash right away or it was their turn.

The only thing I could advise you to do is to get a magnetic eraser board and write a weekly chore chart with assigned names. You can rotate it monthly.
You could even pretend you're doing this in the roommate's interest as he's just "too busy" to be able to remember things.
And you know what? If he doesn't do the chores after that, then at least there's no ambiguity left. You'd be completely in your right to be angry and chew him out as fit for being a lazy asshole.

I know the chore chart sounds so tedious, because you shouldn't have to stoop to juvenile techniques in order to get adult men to be responsible. But I sincerely believe you may see results with it anon. Give it a try before you start being the maid to everyone.

Btw, the can at least cut the tapes and break down the computer boxes so they're flat and can be stored someplace.

He tried engaging in fist fighting with me, being the useless NEET he is, his strength was pathetic compared to mine, someone who cleaned a 4-people apartment everyday besides having a job, punched his face and broke his glasses. He started crying and ran away outside to pick up his CPU. Nowadays we get along fine and he got his shit together.

I feel like I'm supposed to be proud coming into work sick…
I don't get sick too often, but when I mention it to my manager she tells me a story of when she was soooo sick but still came into work
The only reason I'm still here is because we are short staffed and it's so hard to find someone to cover and help.
But I'm coughing all over the place and she expects me to help customers and serve food

Last time I was super sick was around this time last year, I had a upper respiratory infection, tonsillitis, strep threat and a horrible and cough
But she didn't take me seriously even when I told her i needed to leave 30 min early to go to a doctor.

I'm tired of being treated like shit and not being taken seriously when I'm ill

My 'ex-bf' back then (I was 16, very dumb, we were together for 6 days)
pressured me into going down on me while he was drunk at a friends birthday party - despite me being on my period. I was super uncomfortable during that and I still hate myself for allowing that prick to even touch my private parts. At least i got a little payback because he seemed like he was close to throwing up while he was busy with my very VERY bloody vagina.
I do thought a lot about it lately and still to this day I have issues with my current bf wanting to go down on me.

i switched to a pubic highschool and got my first bf- we were eachothers first kiss, sex, everything. after 5 months i cut it off because he was doing drugs but i told him i didnd't hate him and i wouldn't shittalk him. he agreed to do the same. he ended up telling everyone about what we did together, constantly slandered my name, and made everyone hate me (i was the new kid and they all grew up together- no one cared about me). i spent my highschool years being constantly judged, made fun of on social media, and talked about.

because of this experience im super socially awkward, paranoid, and i always think that people hate me. i haven't even had a crush on someone since then. the worst part is that we were both involved in a sort of 'alt' music scene, so he's also shittalked me to all the boys there too. even in college i can't escape this shit.

I have only used marijuana a few times this entire year and only when my friends happen to be smoking. I never go out of my way to look for or spend money on marijuana. My partner exploded in rage when I told him I smoked with friends recently. I do not know if our relationship can last due to this.

We already once had a disagreement over it which ended in him being physically abusive toward me (i.e. pinning me down, taking away my phone and keys, and not letting me leave the house because the argument got too ridiculous and he couldn't be reasoned with). I had thought that after that, he was remorseful over his action and let go of this issue altogether. He still hasn't and I don't know if I can handle feeling like walking on eggshells anymore.

One of my friends is considering moving back in with her abusive ex and it makes me sick to my stomach.

He kicked her out very abruptly in September and she stayed with me and my bf for a month in our one bedroom apartment until she was able to move in with other friends. It was supremely inconvenient but we did it because we cared. When she moved out, she didn't take a lot of her stuff with her and kind of made us into an impromptu storage unit. She spent her money pretty poorly and blew through her savings quickly.
Well, she had a medical emergency hospitalization soon after and quit her job when she got out. The friends she intended to room with said she should move back in with her family since she couldn't afford rent, and put her on a track to get kicked out of their place as well. She was supposed to move back with her family this weekend butttt…

…she's starting to see "good improvement" with her crazy abusive ex. You know, the same guy who put her out, spread around nasty gossip, verbally abused her, and embarrassed her. She just told me she spent the weekend with him and did a bunch of "cutesy" shit together but idgaf. I didn't even want to hear about that horseshit. He's putting on a facade. No good person would do fucked up shit like that in the first place.
Oh, and this goes unspoken but there's no way they didn't fuck. No guy is going to let his ex stay at his place for the weekend and not expect nookie in exchange. He's not the type to do shit out of goodwill.

And what makes me even more furious is that he badmouthed her friends (including me) in an attempt to isolate her when they were still together. Eventually I became a "potential thief" who wanted his plastic TOYS. Power Ranger toys I shit you not!
And she wants to get back with this person who treats her and her friends like shit. No, he will never apologize for the shit he said and done.

I'm so angry at her.

She kept sneaking around and getting back with him and I just couldn't do it anymore. You have to either try and reason with her or just cut it and move on.

I really fucking sympathize with this. Your description fits my old housemate to a tee.
He works four days a week at a grocery store, which is fine except he has no ambition to do anything except stream on twitch to zero viewers between the hours of 11pm and 6am. I turned my room into the nicest room in the house despite it being a tiny attic room with no central heat. As landlord's son, he got dibs on the master suite with 8 foot ceilings (he's 5'5"), while I'm literally several inches taller than him and my ceiling was 6'6' and slanted down.

Here's my worst story. A few months before I left, he and his brother got two pet bunnies. The thing that truly disgusted me was this: they had the bunny cages sitting straight on the floor, one cage in the hall, and one cage in the master bath. There was poop all over the carpet, and when the main shower broke, I had to use his shower. The rabbit poop somehow rolled to every corner of the bathroom and he would clear a little path through it by rolling them to the side with his foot.

The rent was only like $250, but I eventually said fuck it. Now I'm stuck at my parents for what seems like an eternity, but at least that episode is over.

>You can’t have a conversation with him without him acting like he knows more about the topic, and he’ll interrupt you to correct you even though he doesn’t know shit about the topic.

Although not necessarily a bad thing if he's ambitious, there's nothing a man wants more than to be respected, even if he does nothing to deserve it. If this guy ever admits he's wrong about a small thing, say "I really respect you for admitting you're wrong." If he ever admits he's not knowledgeable about something, say "I really respect you being so candid." Sometimes these guys will shape up with good reinforcement.

That pretty much how I feel. My heart is hurting at how much I fucking suck at life. I'm about to ruin a few people's lives by the end of the week and it sucks. Pretty sure I just wasted the seven years I was in college. I may get a six pack of beer and just drink my face off and pass out.

If I could end my own life and not hurt anyone in family, I would do in in a heartbeat. I've thought about getting purposely t-boned (another driver hitting the front of their car into the left side of my car).

>>215935 is right anon, but if your'e not ready to accept that he is this level of abusive, consider the fact that even if he wasn't physically abusive, he is still someone who can't handle his partner doing anything he doesn't like, even if it doesn't actually hurt him. That should be reason enough to leave him as he is not ready to be in a relationship with anyone. Maybe you're right and one day he will be remorseful, understand the error of his ways, and change, but it is not your responsibility to oversee this and endure abuse until it happens. He can do it alone and if he was really worth it maybe you can find him again after he changes. Everyone has their problems and a healthy relationship involves forgiving each other and helping each other grow, but this is not balanced and there's nothing you can do in the near future to make it balanced, except refusing to stand for it.

My bf is amazing but we just dont click well anymore. I tried to break up with him in the past but i was convinced by him and his friends to stay. I've noticed I nag a whole lot more now over stupid things that shouldn't bother me and I think the irritability is coming from the fact I don't want to stay with him.
I have no friends at all. I'm talking no one. No one to talk to other than my bf. I have no idea how to make good friends since I work in a male dominated workplace.
Speaking of work. My boss was mocking those who self harm and kill themselves. For someone who is going through that I find it disgusting. My boss is a gross old, old man who likes to belittle others and compare everyone to his amazingly autistic children.

I just can't take it anymore. I have to make a group project with this one entitled bitch who thinks she can play big boss and Ms.I-know-it-all.

The other two people in the group are ok and I'm happy, that I'm not alone but they just suck it all up & never say anything when she behaves like a rude & entitled brat. I am SO close to just start a fight with her haggard ass and just snap her neck or scratch out her eyes, but on the other hand I really do need to get a good grade on this.
The other thing is, that I do think that she tries to sabotage me & the other members. She always insists that she has to correct ALL the group papers for grammar mistakes (we have a student in our group who isn't a native speaker) one last time before we turn them in and the last time there were even more grammar mistakes than before.

My boyfriend just called me to tell me he was fired. This comes only a few weeks after they fired a different manager who worked there for five years, and it was pretty obvious bf was getting the axe next. The terminations are happening because the owners have a failing business and therefore shuffle through employees so as not to allow any dissension among the ranks/having to pay higher wage employees.

Bf said he was going to the bar next door to have a drink…whatever, I just told him to do what he has to.
He's been interviewing elsewhere in anticipation for the firing, I guess I didn't know how dire and soon this situation was upon us. I'm completely shocked that these shitbags would do this mid-December.

Farmers, I'm absolutely screwed insofar as supporting us both. I'm going to be forced to have to work even more at my own fucking job and I mentally can't take it. Even if I worked my ass off now it means I'd have to cover all rent and all bills from now and until whenever he gets a paycheck from the new job. This is all during the holidays.

I'm sitting here on the floor with a tight chest and tears welled in my sockets–no fuck that–I'm crying right now.
Bf said he was going to file for unemployment because he technically qualifies even though we live in a right to work state. It's just I hate how casual he sounded because it doesn't mean if he qualifies, that his unemployment checks will be here by tomorrow. This will take weeks if he doesn't find a job sooner than that.

I know killing myself will make fuck all better, but these intrusive thoughts are the strongest they've ever been. I am this shooketh.

I have issues with feeling inadequate in my new relationship. My bf is more sexually experienced than me but has not had relationships that lasted longer than 4 months (he's only dated 3-4 girls). He's done some pretty kinky stuff and when he suggested that we try it, I asked him if he's ever tried it before and he said yeah. That made me really upset for some reason, so I said I'm not ready just yet.
I've only had 2-3 relationships before, of which one was a really long term (5 years) relationship where we were both virgins and sort of 'grew up' together. That's the only guy I've ever slept with and it shows.
I've also never been hit on by anyone whilst my now bf has and all of the above is kinda making me feel like shit. He's younger but more experienced and I feel ugly and unwanted compared to him. I don't think I'm bad looking but I have trouble making friends and guys avoid me like the plague. I've been told I'm always unhappy and grumpy but it's hard not to be when nobody ever tells you anything sweet or gives you time of day. Bf's previous exes were also a lot more promiscuous than me, and that's something he's okay with but I'm very judgmental (though I keep it to myself) about it and can't seem to get over it, mostly because I'm nothing like the girls he's dated and I just feel deeply inadequate about it all. I'm very much not a fuckbuddy-type person and he's done that too in the past despite being a vidya addicted NEET for all intents and purposes.

I've tried talking to him about it but he took offence to my being squicked out by his past and said it's something he can't change and that I'm acting like a high schooler.

I’m actually the BF in this situation; I slept around and did loads of kinky stuff before I got with my boyfriend, whereas he lost his V 6 months prior to us getting together and therefore has little practical experience. 2 years later and he is by far the best lover I’ve ever had. I can see why your BF’s past might be intimidating, but it is honestly refreshing being with someone who hasn’t been around the block a few times because they see sexual experiences with new eyes. I loved my boyfriend’s real excitement at trying new things, and how into it he got learning how best to please me!

Tl;dr please don’t be so self-conscious about this. Your BF is probably reacting the way he does because he can’t change his past, but you definitely have control over the (sexual) future you guys have together. Let go and have fun with it.

I hate how my parents have typically considered me to be this lazy person, but at literally every job I've had I have been considered by fellow employees and supervisors to be an ideal employee. Even though one of the jobs I hold is part time, both my supervisor and her boss wish there were at least 3 clones of me because of my work ethic and customer interactions for shifts I cannot cover. And at my full-time job, I'm one of those people that can't miss a day without it throwing everyone else through a loop because of all that I do to keep things running.


But my parents' opinions of my work ethic ran longer than my hs or even college graduations. Literally every teacher would give them raving reviews on how I would be the first one done with assignments, help other students, or whatever on parents' night, but because my depression would hit more at home (where I couldn't distract myself with work as much), it seemed like I did next to nothing.


And yes, I do see it since I've moved out of my parents' house, live alone, and work 6 days a week… I do drop on general cleaning responsibilities, but it's because I'm giving 120% at what pays me, so my one day a week of relaxation doesn't always get the attention it needs for cleaning and upkeep.

Got into a huge fight with my bf yesterday about going to a music festival with his slime ball druggo friend, he got pissed that I didn't trust the situation at all and his shitty friend told me he'd been clean from drugs for a month.

I was basically forced into saying okay for him to go, and right after I go to bed last night apparently he and the friend were making plans for a fucking party bus and ecstasy. This morning bf says he may not go. I found out the party bus shit a few minutes ago from a friend who was in the call while they were planning shit.

I am so fucking angry right now that I was treated like a paranoid untrusting bitch (FOR GOOD FUCKING REASON THANKS GUT) and forced into saying yes to the festival just to turn around and hear them making plans for a drug party bus.

I haven't brought it up to the bf yet because I want to ask if he's still going before I blow up but jfc I want to punch a wall.

hey anon, I normally just lurk but I had to reply to your post - I won't tell you it won't get better, or it won't work out or to leave him because love isn't that simple, but I will tell you from personal experience that putting your energy into fixing a relationship due to another person's mistakes is mentally draining and something you shouldn't have to do. Why should you stress yourself and live in a paranoid haze just because of a mistake he made? You did nothing wrong yet you are the one having to feel like this and try and fix things and it's not fair on you.

It's all well and good for him to dance around telling you "ILL CHANGE IT'LL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN THINK OF ALL THE GOOD TIMES WE HAD TOGETHER" but I'm assuming he made a conscious choice to hurt you and betray your trust. The fact that you have sacrificed so much for him makes whatever he did to you alot worse, and more of a reason to leave him imo.

Ask yourself is it really worth struggling through, getting paranoid at every little thing? Personally I waited 12 months trying to rebuild trust and the resentment just got stronger and stronger. Sorry for long winded post, I hope you're feeling better and you make the right choice for -you-, not the relationship or a person 100% willing to break your trust and grovel afterwards.

I'm starting to contemplate suicide again, even though I know I wont do it.
My insecurities in my looks are at such a high right now that any compliment I received before or after this event, I wont believe them.
I was told by a family member that one of my little sisters is prettier than me. And though I shouldn't be offended, I got really upset. I've always had envious eyes on my younger sisters because I'm the eldest and all the stress was put on my shoulders. They wont ever know the feeling of moving every year, the loss of real life friends, the emotional pain I was subdued. None of them know what I've been through.
I've always been insecure in my looks because I've never had a boyfriend due to religious reasons, I was picked on all throughout elementary and high school, and the only ones who complimented me were my friends – the people who never wanted to be rude.
I hate myself. I honestly wish I was someone else all the time. Someone people are happier with and can actually care about. I wish I was born in the cyber age because these kids are given everything they fucking want where when I was a kid I was lucky enough to get a smart phone when I turned 18, and it was a hand-me down old model. I hate that I live now, I hate my existence and I hate being in pain all the time.
I'm not a good artist, my family made that very clear; I'm selfish, a crybaby, and I don't want to exist anymore.
Fuck I wish I wasn't such a pussy so I could just end it. That's the only thing keeping me here. Not friends that would "miss me" – because they won't – or family that would rather I not exist.
Just the fear of ending it alone.
That's the only thing I have keeping me alive.
And that fear is slowly going away day by day.

I'm almost there.

I’m scared of seeing my Dad in the news. Although he’s not a big name he was on a popular show and I’m terrified of seeing “(name) is shooting up heroin with homeless people!” on my phone in the morning.

I hope my Mom finds a caretaker because I can’t keep cancelling appointments and plans to take her grocery shopping and to the pharmacy. Although I love her very much, I can’t keep this up. I feel horrible because I know she’s lonely and can’t leave her rental easily because of her physical illnesses but I need to go to therapy and other appointments.

My dog has to go to an overnight care tomorrow. He’s so skinny I can feel his bones. I’m angry that I’ve spent over $1000 at the vet from my savings just for them to tell me “he’s okay” the first time and “he might be sick” the second time after so many tests.

Very stressed right now, but I’ll keep trying my hardest as usual. I just wanna break down and cry.

>is it possible to rebuild trust with your partner when they've completely and utterly shattered it?
Maybe, if there's literally a decade or so of good history. But I could never imagine staying in that situation, I don't think I have the mentality for it. I assume the issue at hand is cheating anyways, and in situations like this I think back to some post I read on r/survivinginfidelity or whatever.

Basically, the guy stayed with his wife after she cheated on him. He thought maybe they could rebuild trust and tried to tough it out, but he was always angry at her. He just couldnt let it go, he started thinking in terms less of "us" or "we" and more like "myself". Reflecting on that was how he realized trust would never really be rebuilt between them. I don't want to be that person, I'd rather just take the loss and go for the nuclear option so I actually have a chance to really heal from what happened.

Not trying to armchair diagnose you, but most your problems seem linked to your family. If you're thinking about ending it, how about trying to cut your family off before killing yourself. Do you have a job or something? Can you provide for yourself? If so, then just fuck those fucks. Try living without them, like completely. It's like cutting off an infected arm, will be hard, but may save your life. Pick up something, some class or shit, you'll meet new people, maybe men. I know it sounds like "smile more and drink water" type of advice but it worked for me. Years of being suicidal. One day I realized that I can always kill myself. Ironic as it sounds, it really reassured me. I can do a really drastic change and if life still sucks, then I can just an hero. It was kind of freeing, because when you still care for your life, you're afraid of changes, you worry that you'll fuck it up even more. But when you have that suicidal mindset, those things stop to matter. If it goes horribly wrong then I'll just do it, duh. And you know what, I feel like I'll be suicidal forever, it didn't magically cure me, but I am still here, and the change made me stay.
I don't know if I make any sense. If it sounds like I made your story all about me, then sorry. Just wanted to share.

My favorite dress website uses Fedex smartpost to ship things domestically and I fucking hate them for it. Fedex is one of the most unreliable domestic carriers I have ever, EVER dealt with.

All I wanted was a dress so I could have something new and look nice for the holiday. It shipped on november 25th and it got lost somewhere in california on the 1st where it was scanned once and has never been scanned again since. It blew through two separate delivery dates and now it won't even generate a new one.
I contacted the shop's customer service and it took them two fucking days to get back to me so I filed a paypal claim. They told me a week ago that I had to wait until today to contact them again about the lost package. Like…? The package is obviously lost, either make an attempt to find it or give me my damn money back.

I paid using my credit card and it's basically paying interest for a product I don't even have. This whole situation is bullshit. Like I'm willing to accept that a package could at least be showing progress but be delayed at certain locations because of the holiday. But fuck this company for acting like the tracking not being updated for two business weeks going on three is typical holiday delay. It's fucking not. Never had trouble with USPS/UPS around this time of year, funnily enough.

i posted in the man hate thread, but i feel like i should post here too because it's ventposting and i really don't know what to do. my current boyfriend just doesn't seem to give a shit about me anymore. i think he used to, but when we started dating, he just stopped talking to me as much, stopped playing games with me, just he doesn't spend time with me anymore. we're in a ldr so that's already hard to maintain, and on top of that, it feels like i'm doing all of the emotional labor. the worst thing he does, is when i'm talking about something important to me or something that upsets me, he replies with a :(, sends me a cat picture, or just says "oh". or he changes the subject. anytime i bring up something that he's done wrong, he tells me that my medication is just wrong and that i'm freaking out over nothing. i don't know what to do, because he seemed so into me and interested in me before, but now he can't even find the time to hang out with me. not even to just watch a youtube video or something.

also, he lives in another country, and when i go to visit him it's really expensive and going through border patrol gives me a ton of anxiety. what does he do the whole time i'm there? ignore me, sit on his computer and play videogames/look at 4chan. he would only get up to eat, shower, or for sexual stuff. but he would ignore my presence there too. i can't just tell him what i need because he would think that i'm being irrational. he will insist that he loves me but make no effort to spend time with me or care about my problems so wtf do i do. did i piss him off somehow or is he just "like that" (as he says) and i need to get over it and accept it?

Dump him. He’s using you for sex and emotional attachment at his leisure. If he really cared about it he wouldn’t have suddenly started acting so cold to you. Whenever a guy changes how he acts around you so suddenly like that, it’s nevee a good sign.

My bf is not a bad person, and I know we would stay friends if we broke up. He's bad at empathy but pretty good at honest communication and does a lot for me.

The holidays are bringing out some of the worst customers and it's starting to drain on me.

She ended up complaining about me after she left the store happy about something insane so I wrote that she shouldn't be allowed back in our store as well. My manager just sent me a snap of her screaming at our head manager about it today after a week already passed.
I'm just waiting for the bad yelp review. I wouldn't care so much but customers can now request our names and I fucking hate that. I have so many loyal clients that it's embarassing to know that some mental case can bad mouth me because she couldn't get free shit.

Almost everyone has some bad grades now and then. It doesn't really matter until the end of college or higher education, you're fine.

Almost everyone feels how you do about school. We don't learn much until we get an actual job and then learn on the fly. Self-study can be a great thing, especially something that you can use in future jobs in your interest. Since you are young, take the time now to learn some things that you always wanted to. Even if you just have an internet connection or a local library, you can do it.

Jesus christ I went to dinner with my mom this evening and she bitched about having an extra charge for the meal, but it's entirely because of something she ordered.
The menu clearly said that if you wanted a house salad as a side, it was a $4 add-on. The price for what she got was whatever was listed on the menu… +$4 for the salad. And she was getting mad at me for pointing out she was wrong. No matter how many times you say "well it said you got this plus one side and I got salad because it was a side" doesn't mean you are right. It clearly said that if you wanted salad, soup, or some other choice it had an additional cost that was literally listed right next to the items in question.

"Well your brocolli and fries didn't cost extra!"
Yeah, because they were standard sides.

She legitimately got mad at me and told me to shut up when I was trying to rationalize this with her. She also got mad when I ordered a Long Island Iced Tea and claimed it would cost $20. Never in my life have I paid more than $12 for one anywhere around this area (spoilers: this one cost less than $10).

In the end, however, they voided the cost of her salad. When we got back to her house and I left to go back to my own place, I almost stopped back by there to apologize for her because I felt embarrassed.

I really hope I don't turn out like her when I get older and that it's just some stupid generational thing.

I've been feeling horrible since last night because of my feelings for 2 guys at my job. I work in a retreat center that has several departments. One guy, I'll call "T" I work directly with once a week, but see almost everyday because we work across from each other. The other, called "S", is in a completely different department but I see a few times a week.

T is a funny laidback guy who I find charming and am begrudgingly attracted to. The problem is he has kind of a shitty work ethic and has pissed of a couple of my coworkers a few times, he can also be careless. I know we aren't compatible, but Im still attracted to him. S is a sweet, introverted, quiet guy who I also find really attractive and am trying to get to know him but its hard because Im also a shy introvert.

Yesterday the whole building went to see the new Star Wars movie and before we went T was hanging around me alot even though we dont work together today, he was just making jokes and random conversation, way more than usual. But I know he like this other girl in another department I'll call M because she told me he asked her on a date and he has been hanging around her all week. It's weird because it seems like he's been paying alot of attention to me the past 2 weeks too. Like coming up and asking me random stupid questions or giving me compliments and high fives for doing minor things. Im confused because I feel like he shouldn't be hanging around me so much if he's trying to date this other girl but I feel like I could be misinterpreting his behavior because he's pretty friendly with everyone (althoulgh Ive never heard him give anyone else compliments or high fives).

Of course T sat with M at the movie, but that doesnt bother me. Im just bothered be him being so clingy throughout the day when he's trying to get with M. S also went to the movie but came in late so I didnt get to sit or talk with him like I wanted to. When we all got back to the building after the movie ended I went and found S and got into a convo about the movie, he had to work though so I had to keep it short(he manages kitchen stuff and had to make sure the food was ready for retreat guests for dinner that night and breakfast that morning). I felt bad afterwards because I felt like I was bothering him when he was trying to work.

Its hard with S because Im scared he wont like me, and with T I hate myself for liking him because I know I shouldnt. Some part of me likes when he gives me attention but is scared that Im misinterpeting it as something more than it's not. I also just started working here a month ago and all my past jobs have been with only females. I haven't been in any type of relationship for 6 years because of depression/anxiety issues so Im not experienced with adult relationships.

>tl;dr: Im attracted to different guys, one who I shouldnt like and the other whose a hard to read introvert and it's confusing and scary.

>He's posting shit like "So tired of psycho girls," "Why are girls fucking crazy," etc
>Visit his Tumblr account which I got from the screenshots sent from the ex-GF, he's reblogging photos from what I assume is his ex adding things onto the post like "overdose you fucking whore" and "answer me", "message me back", etc

I just spoke to an old friend about this from my old community who knows him, and he sent me screenshots of Twitter guy sending an underage boy a dick pic and asking him for a blowjob. Now I'm wondering where to go with this. I have this guy's full real name, I know where he lives and works. Now I have serious incriminating evidence against him because he's like 20.

I think you're better off contacting the police for advice on where to go from this. A quick google search states that you should contact your local FBI office for internet harassment: https://www.fbi.gov/contact-us/field-offices/field-offices

I think they would probably consider it a big deal that this guy is threatening to rape and kill three people, is stalking them, and that he's trying to meet an underage person for sex + sending them naked photos of himself.

How can you post here and not see that you can do the same thing?

So many posts are about abusive or outright rapist SOs, and anons apparently put up with them,shovel them money and attention and even have kids with them. Just don't be fat, a criminal, or mentally retarded, and you can get a lonely gf too. But since you haven't realized this yet, you might be failing that last qualification.

all these men invading us are making me paranoid. i know it's all probably one guy but to be honest it's kind of upsetting and i'm scared all the men i know in my life are really like that, at least subconsciously. it makes me not want to date guys for awhile or talk to them, because i'm afraid of them all being like that.

and yes i realize im being paranoid/anxious but its messing me up. i stay up late at night reading stuff like that and making myself worse. idk how to stop and just let it go

I mean, it definitely isn't just one guy doing all this. You should look at the r9k thread about the raid.

We've always been raided. It sucks, but calm down. Your reactions just provoke it further.
