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 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.

my depression is consuming my life. going to my shit retail job makes me want to blow my brains out. I have to work 6 to 330 tomorrow and I'm close to having a mental breakdown. I've isolated myself from my shitty friends for just that, they're shitty. That's not what makes me upset, it's the fact that I have no decent friends that makes me upset. My body is going to shit and I've gained weight. I can't stand to look at myself and every time my boyfriend touches me I just want to cry. Every time we have sex I cry because I'm forced to look at my disgustng body. I moved out from living with my boyfriend to move back in with my family because my mental state has never been this bad. I don't care enough to even unpack my things that have been sitting in boxes for about a month. I don't talk to any of my loved ones about it because it's fucking embarrassing being such a useless piece of shit. I don't look forward to/have plans for my future because I thought I'd have killed myself by now. I hate the way antidepressabts made me feel and the way the doctors didn't care so I stopped taking them/visiting years ago. Not that I could go now, because I don't have insurance and I can't afford oit of pocket. I just want to end it all but I couldn't put my family through that. I just have no will to live. I just needed to say that because there's no one irl that I can confide in. I fucking despise myself.

im just, sort of sad

had an anxiety attack a couple of days ago and was laughed at, making it worse, and im still embarrassed about it and havent left my room much since then

ive been thinking a lot about the fact that i dont really have friends and my family practically disowned me a few years ago after finding out about me being gay. my gf invited me to spend it with hers, but at this point, i dont feel worth anyones trouble. ive lost my job and i cant bring myself to call for check up on applications because it feels like every social interaction i have gets progressively worse and i know thats stupid but panic takes over amd it always seems like the only logical thing at the time and its frustrating because i know it would be so simple to just go “hey youre being stupid and theres no reason to be freaking out over people that dont care” yet the fear is still there

it feels like my whole world is just my room. i feel lonely, especially with all of this christmas talk.

I plan on leaving when my gf is sleeping christmas eve because i dont think i can stand being in a full house. i feel like im barely human and unfit for forming a relationship with them. i dont know what to do my mind has been frazzled all day thinking about how stupid this is but that constant dread of making an idiot of myself at the attempt of engaging with anyone ever again never leaves the back of my mind

A while back I went to a party with a a guy friend of mine who got extremely drunk and proceeded to try and get with me the whole night despite me constantly telling him I have a bf and shutting him down. Anyways, fast forward 6 months and him and I finally talked for the first time since that night, and I told him I thought he had been avoiding me since I was shutting him down all that night - he told me he had no recollection of that night but that his sister told him we kissed which 100% did not happen. I’m so afraid he told other people or something…. I made it clear to him that we didn’t kiss and that I was constantly shutting down his efforts and I’m sure he didn’t forget the whole night - but I’m scared he’ll spread rumours. My bf knows I was hanging out with him that night but I never told him that he was trying to get with me because I didn’t want to create unnecessary drama or have him feel upset even though no lines were crossed at all. Ugh.

I miss my childhood days when I was the coolest kid at the block and girls competed to be friends with me. Later I had this one bestfriend for life and was the happiest, but she changed schools and our friendship slowly collapsed, to the point when even saying hello is awkward now. Over the years I've also had this friend that I thought was my soulmate, we've had many adventures together, went through the weeb, edgy and depression phases together, she would always tell me she loves me and how important I am to her. Long story short she finally got herself a worthy boyfriend and we barely talk (though we are still good friends and very important for each other. But the magical closure is gone I would say.). My current bestfriend is a guy but it's not the same with a man, and also he's a shut in and dragging him out is always a pain.
I just miss having a bestie. I don't know, it's weird because it seems like I really want to be someone's number one. Some would say - get yourself a boyfriend or something, but it's not what I want. When (if) guys fixate on me I feel nothing, or maybe even aversion. I want a deep close friendship with a girl again, I don't crave romantic feelings at all. I wonder where that comes from, my family is great and loving, it's not like I have not-loved-enough-as-a-child issues. Eh.

I know this probably won't give me the most wholesome answers but anyone willing to help a gal out, gimme some perspective

so I saw this rly cute guy at a con and sent him a friend request on fb; we start chatting and we have a lot of common interests, the same dark nihilistic humour, we are generally hitting it off and talk every day for about a week. in this week I say how I thought he was cute and he's all "I'm so happy you got the courage to talk to me" and calls me darling/love, etc, he's very sweet and respectful and he actually talks to me and ya know, is attentive? like he doesn't ignore my messages, likes my posts, he said my hair was cute in my profile picture

so we wanted to meet up but he sped it up to ask me out for the star wars premiere; I mean, a guy asking a girl out on a date on star wars, the nerd mecca, when he could ask any nerd friend? hell yeah! (fellow nerd here so ofc I was thrilled), so he pays for my ticket (in 3D no less), he insists on coming to pick me up and drive me home, and he sends me a messg like "I'm downstairs, darling", so like, I come down

I've curled my hair into a vintage style (like in my photo), and I'm wearing a lowcut retro A-line black dress with a cherry pattern, very lowkey makeup just some concealer, mascara and a lip tint, I'm frankly looking bomb as fuck and I run into his arms for a hug. Now, I'm chubby/fat whatever you wanna call it, I'm a US size 12/UK 16, for reference, but I'm also only 5'1, so yeah. My friends say I'm not disgusting and I've got a cute face and I definitely don't look my age (I'm 6 years older than him).

He hugs me and laughs, but it's that sort of pleasant nervous laugh you get. In the car we chat, and well.. here's the thing, because we'd already expressed our interest I was pretty forward, which is very unlike me. I'm usually shy and reserved but I was touching his hand, touching his hair, touching his knees, I was being FORWARD. I ask to hold his hand on the way for a coffee before the movie starts and he says okay, and he sits next to me in the cafe, but his posture is like his entire torso is trying to escape from me. And I noticed but didn't rly pay attention, meanwhile all night he still does that sort of nervous small laugh, and I'm like oh well he's just shy. We talk, chat, banter, movie starts, and he has his hands firmly on his popcorn while I'm gently stroking his hand, stroking his thigh, not like full on fondling but that absent minded stroking with your thumb. He neither pushes me away but doesn't reciprocate, either. I'm getting kinda worried at this point but I kept at it until a certain point when I just stopped, and his hands are interlocked, firmly against his crotch area, as though he's waiting at a hospital or something.

Movie ends and his hands are stuck in his pockets, and I noticed him checking his phone every so often but like okay, not my deal. In the car as we go I'm like so yeah… I really like you and I hope you like me too and he's like making dodgy answers like "you're not my type" and that he's a picky person and I'm still just as cute but it's like when someone seems interesting online but comes off different IRL (??? at this tbh like I wasn't a surprise he knew what I looked like, ya feel?) and I was so shook I was just yeah it's fine, it's okay, and he's like no it's not okay and he feels bad but he's still happy he met me and we can still chill out and such, yeah? and what on earth can I say here

so yeah he drops me off and like, I'm fucking heartbroken. All through the week I'd been talking to everyone I knew about him, sharing our convos, saying how amazing he is, what we have in common, and our date, and I come back home in tears and everyone online is bombarding me with messages like HOW WAS THE DATE and I had to humiliate myself by explaining what happened


and like I just don't get it. He's 21 sure and appaz hasn't been in a relationship in a while but I just don't get it. Was me being forward a downer? Cause… I mean… I thought I was actually being open and not a weird introverted freak and we both said how anxious we were before we met, and I thought he was gonna be different, you know? Was it my appearance? Cause he knew what I look like, I assume he'd look through other photos, I don't think my body type came as such a surprise, or that I'm that repulsive. I just don't understand what could have happened in between "I'm downstairs, darling" and "you're not my type" and honestly it's bummed me out to hell and back

sorry for blogpost but I just really need some fucking insight, experiences or whatever because it's torn me apart bc the guy is… yeah, I really like him

No. 217926

Maybe he did feel a bit uncomfortable with you being as forward as you were - some people just aren’t into that right away and it’s important to feel out where the other person is and if they’re reciprocating it or not in order to continue. I think you noticed he wasn’t into it, but chose to ignore that and continue being touchy feely, which made him feel uncomfortable. Personally, if someone was doing that to me I would be extremely uncomfortable and upset that they weren’t really giving up despite me not doing it back. It’s not you’re looks or personality, just actions. Next time just be considerate of how the other person is receiving what you’re doing.

you seem like a nice person nonnie, but also… incredibly creepy. I can see how it's justifiable, you're a nerd, chubby, introverted (if I understood well? Sorry for assuming), and you thought acting differently and more forward will be better, but you know what would be truly better? Being yourself. You creeped him out, no sugar-coating here, you were incredibly inappriopriate.
Imagine being a girl, meeting a guy for a first date and he immediately puts his hands onto you, stroking your freaking thigh??? I would SMACK.
You clearly noticed the signs - interlocked hands and oh god, hands against the crotch. Seems like he felt VERY uncomfortable and you knew it, why did you continue behaving like that??? This actually makes me really upset, even though I symphatize a bit with you.
Maybe him saying you're not his type and different irl meant that he thought you're a nerdy, introverted or whatever girl and he didn't expect you behaving like some casual tinder date.
As >>217926 said, this will be a lesson for you. I don't think you should pursue this guy any further, you fucked up here. Or at least don't go at him with darlings and such, start slowly, rebuild his trust.

A coworker brought her eighth month old baby to the scheduled business meeting today, and what pisses me off is SHE WASN'T EVEN SCHEDULED TO BE IN HERE TODAY SHE HAD HER OWN BUSINESS MEETING ON FRIDAY.
I'm sorry, but it's attention whoring to the max.
>LOOK AT MY BABY!!!!!!!
New mothers are so fucking desperate.
Of course most of my coworkers are older and have kids of their own, so they entertained it and weren't about to be mean. But it was like having a Furby in the room the whole meeting. We'd get to talking about something and the baby would start screeching and yelping, so it would throw the conversation back on it for the preceding minutes and nothing productive was actually discussed. When we'd get slightly on track towards the end, the baby started to fuss so we'd have to talk over it.

Like surely I'm not a bitter catfag just because I thought this was inappropriate, right? Even if we're casual, it's a bit absurd to bring a newborn to a business meeting that she's not even on the docket for, right?
Not everyone thinks her little bundle is the best thing in the world. Oh, and I have her on fb but had to hide her feed because all she'd ever post are pics of this kid sitting on the floor and acting like each new dumb expression were a milestone. I actually feel a little bad for kids who are never going to know a private photo from their infancy and childhood because it will be plastered all over social media for hundreds of creeps and pedos to oogle at. Just because mommy needed her likes quota for the day. Fucking damn.

I feel like my friends just constantly steal my fashion and personality from me. A year ago they didn't give a fuck about high fashion, they only knew brands like Louis Vuitton.
A month ago my friend didn't know who Margiela, Demeulemeester, etc. were.. and now she's buying the exact same things I own from them. I know I'm a bitch for being annoyed, but you can tell she knows nothing about HF and is just blowing her whole paycheck on whatever I'm buying.

I don't think it had anything to do with you being fat or anything else about your appearance.
You just came on wayyyyyyy too strong contrary to how reserved you might have seemed online. Also if he knew you were older, he might have gotten desperate vibes but didn't want to be rude to you by declining.
Please, please, please try not to touch someone on future dates without at least asking. There was nothing wrong with you asking to hold hands, but the hair and thigh touching is incredibly weird for a first date. I wouldn't like a guy, no matter how cute, touching me like that on a first date to a movie either. I can't imagine how awkward this must have felt as a dude.

I'm not saying this to hurt your feelings. Surely you had high hopes and maybe just got a little carried away in your excitement. As a fellow fattie I know how flattering it is to be asked out by someone cute, but try to show restraint before you drop them moves girlfriend.

I was suverely abused and neglected by my family as a kid. It made me feel unwanted, as if I had no chance to be something great someday. I felt like I was only born and raised to be some choleric assholes wife, which is usual in our culture. They didn't provide enough stimmulation for me to properly develop, I was always isolated and in company of stupid people/no kids my age, which I think made me become very antisocial and disfuntional with no skills or qualities. Plus I had this food obsessed grandma who would cry and beat me up if i didnt eat which made me fat and later anorexic as a teen.
And I feel pretty pathetic because there are people with much worse childhoods out there but I guess I'm just stupid and weak. The traumas still haunt me and I feel like I'll never be whole.

Don't worry about comparing your trauma to others anon. What matters is that their actions affected you and it had a negative impact on your adult life now. It's not wrong of you to be angry about that, rightfully so.

My boyfriend is an obnoxious drunk.

He's been hamming shit up recently because he got fired from his job. He's been spending every free opportunity, after applying for jobs, drinking and hanging with friends. I don't want to completely begrudge him for it since he hasn't had a 'vacation' in years, but I can't stand him when he's drunk. He doesn't come home drunk often, but when he does, I'm annoyed.

List of annoying shit he does:
-He yells loudly.
-Gets sensitive if I'm not 100% paying attention to the ramblings and mundane rants he goes on about which are frankly unimportant.
-He gets really touchy-feely, and I don't like being sexual with him when he's drunk bc it literally doesn't feel right. His obnoxiousness isn't a turn on for me anyway.
-If he gets the hiccups he literally pitches a tantrum.
-Extremely clumsy, spills drinks and food everywhere.

Lately I've been getting out of work at 10pm, I have until midnight to myself, and then by 1-2am he's back home and I have to drunksit. It's so hard to stay mad because this is literally the only vice he has, but it's so fucking irritating. I hate it. Alcohol is so overrated.

girl in the creative field, thought dating older/more established artists was smart and ended up in an emotional abusive relationship and now with a stalker who has a close group of shitty friends. i have self esteem and i genuinely just want a partner to be mutually challenged with so inspire/be inspiring with, but after these relationships with narcissists i tend to get sabotaged. my work is very well received and i attract other established artists but i'm battling not speaking out against people for the sake of my career. did recently, got a lot of support, but did it through a vague instagram story bc the silence and trauma of what actually happened got to me and was reacted to by one of the friends (which was insanely creepy) like that night/morning. furthered a mental health stigma issue, which i don't mind, but he fakely puts out an accepting persona to a very large audience and his friend (who constantly got me hammered while he had two beers, knew i had p bad depression, and brought me to his place to sleep with me so. date rape, i woke up and cried, but no one knows) probably gets a huge ego boost when he's keeping something really fucked up alive. it's really painful seeing the vague support he gets while maintaining focus on myself as such a smaller artist, and a girl so i have to fight that much harder. i had mentors when i studied who were considered legends, and all they did was pull me aside to remind me of my talent and potential because they could obviously see me in the grips of depression. not a subtle brag, and thank you for reading, but it's the truth.

i blocked the obsessive friend (who i met on the street and was a creepy dickhead, respectfully told the mutual friend that story and even he agreed he was very in the wrong there) but it sucks because he's a narcissist and will probably retaliate. I've been trying my whole life to find solid treatment for ptsd and am starting some new treatments to hopefully this will allow me to block it out. it just fucking sucks burning these bridges when i was only friends/got taken advantage of because this person was misunderstood, and i genuinely felt like they needed a friend. i did it because loving other people inappropriately but genuinely is my way of loving the traumatized parts of me that i repress; I'm very on top of treatment but i can't for the life of me control my empathy and letting people like that get to me because it's so extreme and fucked up. every therapist i talked to agrees but it's just not that easy.

so in short i have a lot of real potential but i don't have thick skin. i only trust one person, and another just came back into my life, who are crazy talented but they're going through a lazy phase from emotional exhaustion too. trying to surround myself with more motivated people but this has made me not want to reach out at all. i feel really stuck and should probably move, but no where feels safe.

on top of this i have some crazy current girlfriends of my gross abusive exes that both stalk my shit and copy me in the creepiest obsessive ways; literally all these people fixate so hard even after blocking them. i look every few weeks for the sake of my sanity and keep it even more distant unless boredom gets to me, but it's so fucking weird.

i left enough personal information from this to be found but i honestly don't care anymore it can range from frustrating to depressing to disconnected from humans entirely. i know it's all just my ptsd making me more scared but it's already been a living nightmare once just so some dead inside men could take from my youth and potential. i don't want this to destroy me, my work is good because i am so sensitive so i don't want to keep numbing out with drugs, and i just needed to leave this somewhere for humans to see because it's got me that fucked up.

i know it's some social vampire shit but i'm not manipulative enough to know how to steer this in my favor. even blocking the toxic friend made me really anxious from past abuse, and i'm just scared he'll ruin my one thing that i've fought so hard for.

The biggest problem people have with it, myself included, is what they did with the character of Luke Skywalker. They made him into a bitter old hobo who gave up on everything and tried to kill his nephew (Kylo Ren). He sensed the possibility that Kylo might go to the dark side and got scared so he almost killed him in his sleep. Kylo woke up, saw Luke with his lightsaber, ready to kill him and that traumatized him and made him actually go to the dark side. Now that wouldn't be a problem if Luke was a new character, but Luke was already established in the ORIGINAL TRILOGY. Luke fought and forgave his own father, fucking Darth Vader, and said he still sees good in him. That was the whole point of the original trilogy, Luke as someone who does not give up and still sees good in people no matter how much on "the dark side" they are.
Now Disney made him attempt to kill his own nephew because he sensed "he might go to the dark side" and later made him give up on everything, live on remote island alone, milking sloths for green milk. Basically they shat on one of the most beloved character and everything he represented, and made live an awful life and die a dumb death. Other than that, the whole movie feels like a filler. Nothing from episode 7 is resolved, what was supposed to be the main villain turns out to be no-one and dies. New characters feel empty etc

your mom probably feels guilt over her own actions, don't let her deflective bullshit get to you. if anything it was some reference to her siblings or older relatives, but sounds like she needs to grow the fuck up. my mom is very incompetent so i relate, and i found out her mom was abusing her and she just did what was ingrained in her. if she ever does anything hurtful like that to you it's 100% not you and it's her internalized battle she involves you in. Call her out and say her judgement is what fractures the love and that she needs to look at herself and grow up. Stand up for yourself if it hurts you this badly because you have every right to be hurt. Don't put up with this from your family sometimes, remind her to talk about her problems instead of being passive aggressive if she really cared. You being more mature about it than her puts things into perspective.

Get some sleep and you'll feel better. I have insomnia and issues with benzos too from anxiety and it's just your brain regenerating chemicals, not reality, and I relate that it's hard as fuck to separate yourself from it but try to let it run it's course. if you have issues with anxiety/depression please consider taking a blood test and addressing vitamin deficiency issues if you haven't already. Taking a thyroid supplement and vitamin d really helped me get off benzo dependency. try looking into a supplement called "black seed oil" because it is the only natural thing i've found that has effects like a pill.

i really like this guy. he's sort of nerdy in the sense that he likes anime and some weeb stuff but he's not creepy or offputting. he dresses well and isn't too big into the internet like i am.

we were talking on instagram for a while, just little conversations here and there. i learned quickly that we have a lot in common in the things that we like, and it seems like he enjoyed talking to me but the convos were always kinda short lived. id always say to him "i really like talking to you!" to really get the message across that i enjoyed talking with him. well, on friday or so he asked for my snapchat and we've been talking a lot through there.

on friday night we snapchatted all day and before he went to sleep he said some things like "you're the only person ive met in a while who makes me feel less alone" and things like that. i was beaming. we ended that day on a good note with each other.

then the next day i waited all day for him to message me but he didn't. so i sent him a message and he responded excitedly "i was beaming when you messaged me!" and we talked more, the subject matter got even sappier. he told me that i was really pretty and i complimented him back. he kept complimenting me and telling me that he can't believe someone "as gorgeous" as me is interested in the same things he is. then before bed he was sending some really lovey messages like "i wish you were in my arms," "i wish you were here so we could stay up all night together" and then suggested that we hang out one day. he said we should see a movie together.

but yesterday it felt different? i waited all day again and he didn't message me first. i fought through the embarrassment of being the one to say "hi" again and did it anyway. he responded like 4 hours later and he didn't seem as excited to talk to me. still nice messages like "what did you do today :)?" but…idk. he wasn't sending super long messages like he was before. so i eventually just said goodnight to him and he said "rest easy <3"

maybe im overanalyzing it? it's weird that he said all of those nice things to me and said how much he wants me and wants to see me but didn't even follow up on making actual plans or message me at all after i waited until like 7 pm. i just feel sorta thrown around. i know he's not obligated to message me at all but i still don't understand. maybe he's just shy? regretting the things he's been saying for the 2 nights before? did i send an ugly snapchat of myself even though i was basically covering my face in all of them??!!! it's driving me crazy! i hate having a crush, especially when there's nothing else going on in my life so im just obsessing like hell. i also noticed him and his ex??????? gf still follow each other, and they were still dating as of may but there haven't been any more pics of them together since then. she even liked one of his recent posts from like October. maybe they're still together and he's just using me? ugh. sorry for the rant about basically nothing.

Thank you for answering.

I don't know if she's abusive per se. She is anxious, overbearing and take everything badly. I myself have diagnosed GAD and I couldn't stand having her reel up my anxiety all the time (not on purpose but she couldn't keep herself from doing it). I had to move away a few years ago and the contact have been few and far between. Every time I try, she talk to me about her health issues, how she's lonely and stuff. I feel so guilty afterwards. I'm not a good daughter, I should be taking care of her, but I can't, I'm not stable enough to do it. I tried to explain it to her and all she could tell me was basically 'why are you telling me this, I'm not a shrink'. (sorry for rambling, I needed it out of my chest)

I'll look into supplements. I have taken half a histaminic and the last half of a zolpidem to try and get some sleep so the depression doesn't get out of hand for now.

This guy is really into you. He's probably so afraid of seeming clingy and scaring you off that he's always letting you initiate contact.

I bet that he purposely waited those hours to message you back too.

Fucking nerds don't know how to act with girls. I think it's cute but it gets annoying sometimes too. I don't know what kind of advice to give you but I'm dealing with the same kind of guy who -tried- to play it cool.

One day I just didn't have the patience for it and I told him I was feeling kinda lonely that day and what do you know, even though his Skype was "offline" I got an instant reply.

i've recently developed psychotic symptoms and experienced psychotic "breaks" and it's fucking tearing me apart. i knew that this stuff was real, but it's one of those things where if you don't see it IRL you can just kind of dismiss it. i never knew this would happen to me. i can be totally fine, but then the next moment i'm on the floor screaming because i can feel ghosts beating me up. sometimes it feels like my brain goes to sleep, and when i "wake up" i've cut myself. i keep having random urges to stab out my eyes because i think it'll feel good. my brain is fucking with me. it's ridiculous and i can't believe that this is happening. it's embarrassing and i'm scared.

i went to the psychiatrist and he prescribed me antipsychotics but i can't bring myself to take them because of the side effects and the damage they can do. i'm trying to counteract my episodes by reducing the amount of time that i'm alone, so i got a shitty entry-level job that requires me to be really active for 8-9 hours straight most days. it's helped me stay "grounded" but i'm not sure if it'll last forever. i'm afraid that one day i'm going to completely lose my shit and kill myself without actually knowing what i'm doing.

the worst part is that i can't talk about it to anybody because the word "psychotic" and the idea of somebody actually being mentally unwell scares people. i don't want to bother anybody with my issues. i can't even vent to my parents because they're already worried and i don't want to scare them. i don't understand why this is happening and i didn't think this could happen to me.

I just turned 25 and I’ve never had a real boyfriend or been in a relationship. I had a kind-of almost relationship with a guy a couple years ago but he ghosted me and left town to avoid going to jail for something he did as a teen.

I feel like I’m not attracted to anybody, or like I’m not meeting the right guys. I don’t rarely have any friends anymore, I lost touch with all my old school friends when they started getting into LTRs and having kids/moving away. I feel like I’m too far behind and that I should just give up and resign myself to living with my bitter, lonely mother and be friendless and depressed like her.

does anyone have advice on finding jobs on working holiday visa? i’ve applied to so many places and get the “sorry no” email every time. the one job i did get i would up walking out of after 3 weeks because the working conditions were so bad and dangerous. i’ve been told to suck it up and just do shitty jobs but it will literally kill my soul.

my bf said i don’t have to work shitty jobs and he’s happy to support me til i find a good fit but i’ve already been here 3 months with no luck aside from the shitty job. i’m scared i fucked up and should’ve kept it.

i have loads of retail experience and figured it would be easy to find at least a temporary retail job for the holidays but nothing. i wonder if it’s becsuse of the 6 month work restriction that no one wants me or the 1 year employment gap because of school.

Don't worry, contrary to popular belief many people are "late bloomers". I know plenty. Always thought people my age all have had sexual/romantic experiences, but the reality is, most of them don't. And the years are passing, and they are still single. If it's something you really crave, set up a dating profile or take some classes/do something new, because changing surroundings is vital.

I've been looking forward to my departure for such a long time, but these days everything is harder. I feel even sadder than before, lonelier than before, and both yesterday and the day before yesterday I've seriously had two panic attacks because as a result of the stress my body dysmorphic disorder has got worse and I avoid looking in the mirror.

I’ve tried tinder, OKC, POF, match, fetlife and bumble. Every message I get is a hookup request or a guy looking for a Mommy. I should also mention I live in a small woodsy town and I’m not particularly attracted to the football-loving beer-swilling religitard guys around here. There aren’t really any classes to take anywhere, the only places to go are church and sporting goods stores. It’s super remote, I have to drive 45 minutes one way just to get to or from work.

I like musicians and skaters and hippies, but every guy I meet like that is either a lazy bum chasing a constant high or is younger than me. I feel super gross about younger guys liking me because the guy I lost my virginity to was a few year younger than me but had a full beard/moustace and looked older, he lied to me about his age until after we had sex because he was tired of also being a virgin. When we met he told me he was 20, turns out he was 17. When I freaked out on him he called me shallow and said “it didn’t matter” and to him “older chicks are hotter anyway” (yay, age complex at 19!). He also wanted me to be very nurturing and very OTT complimentary and supportive but all he could ever do was talk about himself. Needless to say after I found out he lied to me just to fuck I stopped talking to him, but it really messed me up and despite it being years later and seeing multiple therapists over the years, I still feel cheap and gross over it and my self esteem/body image are dogshit. Really, that is probably the only thing keeping me single- I guess I just hate myself for a lot of reasons and my therapists never saw a reason to address those issues, so…?

I’ve met some good guys over the years who have expressed an interest in me but I always turned them down because I felt like I wasn’t good enough or because they were simply younger than me. I know that’s a shitty thing to get hung up on, but it bothers me so much. Even when I see other women dating or married to younger guys, I gently cringe to myself.

Really, I think I’m too broken and too much of a waste of time. I feel like I’m too emotional and no guy would want to be with me unless I was either some emotionless meme-spouting sex robot or a pretty, perfect girl with lots of friends and money and a good life, and I’m neither of those things.

I don't know what to do anymore. I just don't know who I am or supposed to be. Every time I get together with my friends, they have a friend of theirs tag along and instantaneously Im tossed off to the side and ignored because they're having their in-jokes or whatever, or worse I become the butt of the joke that they can make fun of. I'm always called "weird" just for knowing facts about fashion designers or because I enjoy doing costuming or just because I appreciate certain aesthetics and make a fucking collage or two for my social media accounts.

I'm so upset because we're all fucking adults and it feels like I'm back to high school where I become the token "weird and random" friend that every keeps around to have some good laugh material at the end of the day. I'm just tired of being the friend that does everything to keep their friends happy and supported while I never get that reciprocation. Even this holiday season, I've gotten gifts for everyone that I've thought through based on their likes, what they need, and something that would remind them of some of our inside jokes; I even handmade a few cards. I've gotten nothing from these same friends, claiming that they have "no money or time" while they at the same time are going on fancy trips or buying their other friends something.

It's just so fucking embarrassing to me because I feel like such an afterthought to everyone. I wish that sometimes these friends can remember me and check in on me with a simple "how are you?" or something. Sometimes I get so sad when I hear about other people's friends and they talk about how their friends threw them a surprise birthday party or sent them a thoughtful gift or took a fun road trip with them. I just wish I were appreciated a bit more and not taken for granted.

I don't know how to anymore since I'm not really in that daily environment to meet people. I'm currently in a graduate program consisting of eight people that already have ties to one another from a year or two prior. Everyone's also too busy to foster any real friendships, so it is what it is. As for things like clubs and gatherings, I really don't have the time in the day to really invest myself in a hobby fully. I have so many little things I like to do here and there, but my schedule doesn't really allow me to delve into any scene deeper than I can already.

I just feel like I'm in this weird grey area where I can't really make friends, even in the things I'm interested in. I just feel like with interests and clubs people are already pretty established in the scene and are less likely to open up to others because they have solid friends interested in those things already. I guess I've dug my own hole and now stuck in it.

It feels like I'm constantly fighting an uphill battle, no matter what I do, how hard I work, or how sincere my intentions are. I'm so frustrated and so exhausted with everything/everyone that it's taking all of my energy not to become entirely apathetic and detached.
I've always thought fake it til you make it would work, but it's incredibly difficult to stifle your real self to pacify others. But if I didn't wear this mask, everyone would hate me and I'd get nowhere.

i really hope you check this in time, please do not pass up the opportunity to spend a holiday with your gf in a healthy family environment. reaffirm you will enjoy yourself and just focus on being present with how comfortable your gf makes you feel. she's trusting you to show up, if you make a mistake she cared enough to invite you to spend the holidays with her family so she will work through it with you. you do the best you can.

what you're going through makes perfect sense and is very common. I'm sorry your family was so homophobic, that's awful and you need support for that as you work through it. if you don't the thinking will only become more cyclical. no one is taught how to deal with phobias or how to get help, so don't beat yourself up about it. there are stages to grief, everything you are feeling is normal given your situation. the faster you accept that and yourself the faster you can get better, life takes weird turns but really the self worth you learn in the end is worth it. this will in the end increase your capacity to enjoy life.

I'm getting so tired of hearing people around me complain about their depression making them feel like shit when it's just them not taking care of themselves that makes them feel like shit.

Your average mild depression that you play up for pity points on social media isn't the issue. It's the fact you're forcing yourself to stay up all night because "real nigga depression hours lul" means you're only getting 2hrs of sleep a night, drinking only Monsters and eating instant noodles while sitting at your PC putting 15hrs a day into games. But hey, what do I know? Maybe I'm wrong about your body needing fucking water and vitamins and ACTUAL SLEEP.

I'm not talking about people who are actually severely depressed, but stupid edgy meme teens who just play up this image of a severely depressed person when they're literally forcing themselves to believe that they ARE the kind of person who physically cannot get out of bed to shower or take a piss.

In reality they're choosing to lock themselves into their rooms to sit and post "kek i wanna die" because muh depression.

Whilst people don't actively look for friends at the end of their course, it still happens all the time. Your brain is telling you to give up, that there's no point in trying, but that's not true. Social mixing situations are a bit like going to the gym, it's hard at first and sometimes you have bad days but you can make gains and even when you don't, you can learn about yourself. You don't have to go out every night but try and give it an honest shot whilst being as friendly to everyone as possible, and if you don't like it, try once more. The worst case scenario is that you come off as a weirdly nice person to some people that you will never see again after you graduate, but it will be experience for when you have more time to make an effort of socializing.

The thing is, it sucks. But it happened. And the more you wallow in that bad feeling, the more you weaken yourself. Those guys, they just went on with their lives.

Things in your past, you can let them destroy you and then your life is over. Or you can take them in your stride and use them to make you stronger. Then you'll look back on those things and be like, Yeah I made something of that situation.

Really, if you're in shape and take care of yourself then that's already good enough, even better than many people.

Is it weird to let my girlfriend stay the night at coworkers houses????

I don't like going and hanging out as much anymore I'd rather stay home and watch a movie or play a game. She's better friends with our coworkers anyways so they hang out a lot….it's more so a small group but usually one in particular.

I don't mind it because it gets her out of the house away and I can spend time by myself and I enjoy being alone. However tonight her dad asked where she was and I told him she went out. He was super surprised when I said she's staying the night and told me that's not right. This is the second day she did that, coming home in between.

We have a decent relationship and she has a huuuuuuge thing about cheating and how
It's horrible and stuff so I trust her….but because of how her dad reacted I'm thinking maybe I should be more concerned????

I refuse to have a relationship where we aren't free to go where we want and do things we want so I never mind her going out. I always express no problem and tell her to have fun. But lately I have been thinking differently

No. 218568

>>218567
Unfortunately I do not know the answer, but her dad being concerned speaks volumes. Maybe he knows something about her you don't? Also people vehemently against cheating are either insecure and worried about being replaced or cheaters themselves, trying to seem like they would never do it.
What is your gf's relationship with the coworker? See how she would act if you wanted to go together.
Also is her dad oldfashioned? Cause maybe it's more about his values than your gf doing something wrong.
IDK but if the coworker is of a sex she is attracted to I would worry. Why does she have to stay the night? What is the justification?

I have failed as a human being and the only thing that makes feel better is that I'm not a weeaboo or furry nor do I have weird fetishes.

I've been depressed for 7 years and I have no hope for things ever getting better. I also struggle with anxiety and an eating disorder.

I'm not jealous or bitter of people who are happy and I hope I'll never be. I just feel weird around them because I can't relate to them and I'd rather not come in contact with them at all.

I want to be as perfect as I can under these circumstances so I wouldn't be completely disgusting.

Just stop nurturing them. When they crawl to you for comfort, don’t be rude or anything, just tell them you’re sorry and you can’t help them and you hope they feel better soon. Be positive and cheerful about it, but don’t offer to help them or solve anything for them. If they ask why you aren’t doing what you usually do, maybe mention to them how unbalanced your dynamic is and talk it out from there.

my body disgusts me to a point where i've started prostituting recently to save up money for plastic surgery but i've realized that even when i've had all of the procedures i need done, it will never be enough because i wasn't attractive naturally. i'll always be inferior to women who look amazing without surgery. people i've been with have told me that my body is beautiful but they were either lying or just have the world's lowest standards, what i look like is nowhere near any sort of respectable ideal

See she invites me sometimes and asks if I wanna go, the night before she wanted me to come out. I know she wouldn't mind if I wanted to tag along and probably would be happy.
Maybe her dad sees it as she's going over to a guys house to stay the night all the time.
The reasons behind staying the night is they drink. Either go to bars or go to his house and drink. The group of people stay up late sometimes so it's easier to stay over instead of asking me to pick her up at like 4 am or hoping someone isn't too drunk to drive her home.

On her sexuality she says she is pan…..idk though I'm the first relationship she's been with whose female. She expresses having attraction only to me and blah blah. I'm bisexual and sometimes she has an issue with it lol

But when we do hang out together they tell me she smokes with them even though when I confront her she denies it. I've asked all 4 of the guys and they confirmed it. So maybe she does other things and doesn't tell me???

I agree with you on that, however in LiS almost every character is a stereotype. I think it's one of the things that made the game so endearing to lots of people. But yeah, they could have written a better script for Chloe.
And I don't know if you played Before the Storm, the new season just made me crush a bit harder on her character.

i know it's a weird a question.
when im under a lot of physical stress (i got chronic pain issues)i start to vomit a lot. i get nauseous so i go puke. sometimes the puke comes out no problem and other times i have to hack it up. i dont stick my fingers in my throat or use laxatives. When i get the nauseous i puke and my stomach feels better as opposed to preventing the vomit with antiacids and shit.

I am angry and confused and not sure if my frustration is valid or if I'm just being petty. My boyfriend of a few years has been nagging about not wanting to send him nudes for quite a damn fucking while, but I really don't want to and simply cannot understand why he won't accept that. Oh, and he also told me that I should sell sexy photos of mine online, not naked but in a bra and stuff, because it's such easy money and he would definitely do that if he was a girl. All that just seems and feels wrong to me.
Is it normal that I am feeling disrespeted and almost want to stab him? I barely feel attracted to him sexually already and his disrespectful attitude makes it even more … sad.

I just don't like her way of "everything has to revolve around me" thinking. It's been a while since I played it so sorry if I get anything wrong.
Anyways her getting pissed all the time for no real reason, so when Max does not share her opinion for example, just made her very … unlikable.
She's just a typical angry alt teenager meme.
Also the ending where Max would destroy the picture and then killing everybody just made it worse. The ens scene where they drove of and BOTH seemed fine with their whole town.being destroyed just did the final blow.
When she actually offered her life I liked her. But then getting to know the other ending made it worse.
I just don't see her appeal. And I can't see her as a 'deep' character she is basic af.
I like her apperance but her character not so much.

I'm isolating myself from my shit friends. I only have two, one being my "best friend" since we were in middle school, the other my friend for around the same amount of time but not as close. Whenever I hang out with either, they dismiss everything I say even though I listen to every boring mundane story they tell me. I have never dismissed them or made them feel left out because I hate when it happens to me. On the other hand, if we go out together they hang out and talk to other people they know. This wouldn't be a problem if they introduced me or included me, but they don't. I just end up leaving early because I know nobody and if I try and join a conversation I'm just talked over or ignored. When I hang out with them alone, they end up talking about said people I don't know about and all this shit they did together while ignoring me. They're absolute shit friends and I'm glad to cut them out of my life even though it'll leave me with no one.

Okay so everything here may sound really dumb, but it's 5am, I haven't slept, so I can't really think straight.
I've put myself in a very, very dumb situation.
My boyfriend of 1,5 years broke up with me about four months ago. I was devastated, the relationship was amazing. Right now, I understand why it happened. I want to get in touch with him in about a month or 2.
2 months ago, I met this guy through a mutual friend, let's call him R. R and I started to build a friendship, I didn't really know what to expect. He told me he thought I was attractive. I was flattered, but I wasn't ready for another relationship.
A few weeks later, R and I started sexting each other. I thought it was very exciting, I finally dared to open my doors to someone else rather than my ex. I did feel some mistrust though (I have been abused in the past, so I do have a hard time trusting people). I didn't pay too much attention to that, I focussed on opening up and letting my ex go.
R and I had sex one of the first times we met, at his apartment. We wanted to keep it casual, but it turned into so much more. We had intense feelings for each other, and R didn't want to give in just yet, because he knew I have unresolved feelings for my ex. I completely understood his decision, even though it was difficult. But soon, the cycle continued. Until today.
He completely cut it off, through fucking Facebook messenger. I feel so used.'
The direct reason he broke it off is because he just doesn't understand my trauma of being abused, and I understand why. It's not something that's easy to manage, not a lot of people know how to handle it. My problem with him is though, he didn't even give me a chance to explain it. I'm extremely frightened of being used so I question my partner quite often when the relationship is this young. I guess he couldn't handle that. I'm not sure what to do. He told me he doesn't want to have anything to do with me again, it's so sudden. We were so happy a few days ago, I really miss him already.
I'm probably going to not talk to him for a while and then try to talk to him.
I fuck up everything I have because of something I can't seem to let go. I feel pathetic.

No. 218696

>>218671
Anon I hope you don’t mind me responding, I just feel for you so much. I’ve been there. You’re not pathetic, and you don’t mess things up. R was a rebound, especially given that it started when you were still hung up on your ex, and rebounds come and go. In a month or two, if you try to talk to him again, you’ll probably reevaluate and think, “this guy isn’t that great.” Being with anyone else after 1.5 years of monogamy is new and exciting that rush you get from it can make you think the guy is some big catch when really he’s milquetoast. He’s small potatoes!

Maybe something happened too, you know? Think about it, if your ex came back to you today and said, “I made a mistake and I’m so sorry, but I would like to spend forever with you making it up to you,” what would you do with R? Would you drop him in a second for that chance, regardless of how happy you were with him? Maybe his dog died. Maybe he’s gay! My point is that people come and go and those rebound states are so fragile as is, especially when they’re initially defined by “casual,” friends with benefits type deals. You say it turned into something so much more, but you can never really know that for sure. Men will be really careless sometimes and say things that mean the world to you while simultaneously believing “this is just casual and I don’t owe her anything.”

I digress, you’re not pathetic and you’re not ruining anything. It took me a long life of dealing with trauma and the ensuant loss of potential relationships to know and believe the cliche “if it’s meant to be, it will be,” and when it was finally meant to be it was, trauma and all. I know you’ll be fine.

you got out of something that you felt was really intense to seemingly into something else that felt as such. it is understandable that you would be left feeling the way you do. it really could be simply that the new guy really was just in for it for the sex. some guys go into it hard for the physical and when they move it on it could be as easy as that they got bored or found something else that elicited something as exciting but newer.
rebounds can hurt. ive found over the years that it could be really helpful to take some time to be alone and deal with what you need to personally instead of finding comfort in the arms of another

I just want to dump my bf. I love him but he did some awful shit to me a few months ago when we first moved in together that I can't forgive him for. I try but now I'm just ultra suspicious of him all the time and it's poisoning my emotional health. And our relationship. He says he understands and will be here for me through all my breakdowns about it, and to be fair he has, but it's so exhausting. I'm tired of crying about it and being paranoid.

I did try to break up with him a week ago and he totally lost it. Like broke down sobbing, throwing shit, it was really weird. I was calm the whole time but it was breaking my heart. So I told him I would stay. but obviously I am still unhappy and keep wondering if it's all worth it.

Thank you both. I'm very glad you responded. I'm also very glad that my situation isn't something I can't feel bad about, I don't give myself enough credit. I'm really going to take your advice in account, it's very helpful.
I talked to a mutual (female) friend of ours, and she told me he tried to seduce her as well, and that he isn't very trustworthy, and he's manipulative. He seems very sweet on the outside, but in reality he has a fear of commitment. Something that I wouldn't mind, if he'd talk about it, I'm all about supporting and helping.
But whatever, it's over now, I'm glad it happened now and not after a few months. I regret opening up to him, but I guess that this is a lesson for me.

I know this may sound shitty but sometimes you just have to put yourself first even if it's selfish. You shouldn't sacrifice your happiness for someone else, especially considering that person did awful things to you so he clearly didn't have any regard to how those things were going to affect you. And, no offence, but him throwing shit because you broke up with him sounds weird at and like a red flag for me. Idk maybe it's just me but I think that's more reason to dump him.

That being said, if you want to continue things with him maybe you should try some sort of couple therapy to help you work through whatever issues you had.

My PTSD started acting up and it’s Christmas.

My sisters were arguing which woke my drunken stepfather from his slumber. He started yelling and screaming at my mom and two of my sisters, causing one of them to leave.

My brother tried to have him go back to sleep to no avail as dear stepfather started verbally attacking him and tried to attack my remaining sister, my brother punched him. This happened while my other sister and her boyfriend are visiting.

I heard the yelling, hitting and screaming because I was in the next room and they are in the living room. I was shaking, panicking and weeping while in a numb state. This whole “confrontation is nothing new, regardless of what day it is and usually happens every other month or every 3 months.

He tried to kick my brother out of the house.

Starts talking shit about me when I’m not even there, repeating the same old stories of how I’m lazy and not amounting to anything other then sleep and eat. I want to explain my “laziness” and that I am actually doing something with my life like work and school (he disregards those) but will only make things worse if I step out there.

Right now it’s calm as he’s blabbering away about stupid shit, still talking about how me and my brother are on his “blacklist” for standing up to him (“disrespecting” him in his mind) and the usual word-vomit.

The two sisters shouldn’t have screamed along with my other sister for petty shit, they shouldn’t even blame my nephew (my brother’s kid) for waking up my niece. That sister is daddy’s favorite, one of our family’s unspoken truths.

I don’t know why I’m venting this here, but I just needed to.

I was supposed to go hang out with some new friends for Xmas, but instead I got left out because of a jealous cunt. This one particular guy, let’s call him Bud, I met him a few months ago and we hit it off over DBZ and talking about cooking (he went to culinary school) and being stoners. After that I started hanging out with him and his friend “Ron”, just smoking and talking about anime, eventually we started meeting up at car shows and bonfires and stuff. Fast forward a couple weeks, he meets this girl a few years younger than us, let’s call her Cat. One afternoon me, Bud, Ron and another guy they knew were hanging out and playing Outlast and she decided to come over and hang too. Nothing fancy, just us at Bud’s place, so she showed up in pajama pants and a t shirt. Cat seems nice, polite. Introduce myself to her, she asks how I know Bud. I say something like “Oh, we’re just a couple of stoner nerds who hang out lol nothing much.” And she gives me this…. cringe look? Not like a side eye exactly. Weird, But whatever, I try to be nice to her bc Bud clearly wants to put his dick in her. But after that she won’t talk to me or look at me, and every time Bud starts talking to me she stares at him like she’s trying to burn holes in his head.

About an hour after she got there it was my turn to play, and the whole time I’m playing she’s trying to show everyone videos of her and her friends being “random” on her phone and talking over me when I try to talk about the game with the guys. Bud politely tells her he’s trying to watch the game, and she gets quiet for a few minutes before getting up and announcing she would be right back. She gets her keys and leaves, and comes back in about 10 minutes later wearing makeup, booty shorts, one of those halter-bras that look like a top, and some black and white striped OTK socks. She walks back in shaking her butt and flops down on the middle of the couch beside me and crosses her arms over her chest. Bud looks at her says “What the fuck?” She ignores him.

After that shit was just awkward. She wouldn’t acknowledge me at all, kept talking over me, and kept being a bitch basically by competing for attention. I ended up leaving not long after and ever since, every time I’ve tried to hang with Bud or Ron again, suddenly shit comes up and they can’t. Then I see Bud’s snapchat and he’s sitting on his couch with her and Ron and some other guys and it’s like… oh, ok. I’ve been replaced, again.

I’m sick of this happening. It’s like, as soon as some jealous girl comes along who is willing to spread her legs for attention, suddenly I don’t exist and they have to focus on her and forget all about me. My dad taught me that a girl who has to use her body to get a man to pay attention to her isn’t the girl that man really wants, but goddamn. Every single guy does this shit. Is it really so hard to get with a girl who trusts you and isn’t an insecure twat?

How do you reject people who might be mentally unstable?
A few days ago I met someone on my work route and had a chat with him. At first he seemed alright, but he was very obviously romantically interested in me, saying he felt "insanely attracted to me", that talking to me made him very happy, casually mentioned that "he just had to follow me" and then moved to 'when am I going to meet your parents'-territory. I'm not interested in anything romantic anytime soon and am also 95% sure I'm not into men, but since he's heavily christian and I was dead tired I didn't feel like arguing about and defending any of those two things or straight up shooting him down/dealing with the bullshit that normally follows after that. So I ended up showing a neutral reaction but then going full retard and giving him my number. One day later he spammed my phone with messages (and later calls) while I was busy, some of them literally containing "I'm a nice guy, please give me a chance" and begging me to "please respond" and other messages being weirdly needy and emotionally invested in someone he talked to 30 minutes. His speech was also VERY polite, while sounding desperate. I then nicely told him to calm the fuck down and responded to the minimum. Today he started lightly spamming again.
Now, overall he does seem like a considerate and nice but lonely/desperate person, but I've seen the red flags and my gut feeling starts to give a signal.
I don't really feel like possibly getting stalked, skinned, raped or murdered, so how do I tell him in a nice but certain way that I'm in no way interested without hurting his feelings/ego too much?

Imagine if he somehow magically pressured you enough to force you to play along, you already know you aren't attracted to him or even interested in a relationship with a random guy right now, and his weird ideals aren't yours. He would accuse you of stringing him along (creeper classic), or you spend the rest of eternity with the weirdo just to be polite.
Definitely save your energy by not even wasting any more time on him, you already gave him a polite rejection.
If you're worried about him stalking you in the train station, just remember that stations have cameras and are rarely empty. Practice saying "I don't know you, stop talking to me, you are scaring me" very loudly in your room until you feel you can shout it in public without being embarrassed. It sounds like a childish thing to shout, but it gets people looking (if not involved). He might try to call you crazy, but most guys give up as soon as they are part of a scene.
If he doesn't stop texting, contact the police to file a report, so that if he did get worse or continue then there's a record of it starting.

because men are stupid as fuck, at least in this age bracket.

sorry to piggyback off your post but I'm legit sick of dating a guy who assures me I'm attractive and shit then practically breaks his neck to look at other girls in public if they're wearing a tank top or something that shows a lot of skin, his eyes are drawn like a magnet. and then everyone tells me it's normal, but like, do me the courtesy of at least pretending your dick doesn't rule you.and though I know it's normal to find people outside of your relationship attractive, I can't relate because when I'm dating someone I am 100% committed, I honestly can't and don't think of anyone else in any kind of sexual or romantic way. I wish I did, maybe it would relieve the sting.

the only times I've not had this issue was dating a 30 year old and an asexual guy. but unfortunately I like sex so the latter didn't work out, but it was nice to not have my self-worth destroyed every time I went out in public.

we've argued about it so many times and I just feel like the crazy jealous gf at this point so I don't bring it up anymore but it's eating me inside out.

Start doing it to him? I would but I live in bumfuck now, so I’m not likely to meet any new guys to make “Bud” jealous, and even if I did he wouldn’t notice or care probably. If you’ve told him it bothers you and he keeps doing it, idk. I wish I could give you advice buuuut I haven’t met a guy yet that didn’t make me feel like shit in some way, and then blame me for it by calling me jealous or crazy.

> do me the courtesy of at least pretending your dick doesn't rule you.

Men aren’t taught to ever do this. They’re taught that they can have anything they want, including women. It’s not about being ruled by their dick/hormones/urge to reproduce, it’s about wanting something and then getting it. It’s all about the high from the “win”.

Not saying this applies to your BF, just society in general.

So my rapist and abusive ex is dating a new girl. A few weeks ago I reached out to her to tell her what he is truly like and what he did to me as well as sexually assaulting my friend. We met up and she came to my dorm, we spoke for a long time and we was getting on really well; she was crying and very upset about what I was saying and I sent her audio evidence of him bullying me into sex and telling me to kill myself and slit my wrists open amongst other thibgs. She said she felt very bad for me and how disgusted she was with him. She said she too felt forced into sex by him and that she noticed a lot of red flags and lies when he spoke to her, she said she wasn't his girlfriend and had no interest in him and found him creepy but he keeps insisting on dates and seeing her. We departed on good terms and she said she wanted to be my friend and stay in contact, she said she would block him off of everything and report him to Tinder as a dangerous person to have his account taken down. Later that evening she sent me a text out of the blue telling me not to contact her and that she was scared of me and blocked me. On social media she is openly referring to him as her boyfriend, it just baffles me how after speaking to me, being lovely to me, being shown evidence and even stating she didn't like him that she is in on official relationship with him now. I am currently going through a slow police case to try and get a conviction for the year long repulsive abuse he subjected me to, conviction rates in the UK for rape cases are roughly 7.5% and he is still on my uni campus multiple times a week so I am terrified of bumping into him. I just want some safety and peace of mind that he will not be able to hurt women any more - but a large part of me doubts that anything will become of the case.

I love moomoo’s threads so much
But ever since that fucking nickname Mar Mar showed up I can’t read them anymore because there are anons that refer her as that and it makes me feel like I’m that cow.

I’m quite surprised that there are anons (or this one anon) that’s continuously rejecting the nickname as well.

If anything, I had one thing that I was so proud of and that was my name
But now the ugly cow has just ruined it-


Gdi I sound like some brat now and it’s making me even more angry, over a dumb name.
I’m so bitter because I’ve finally started liking my name ( since it means snake in another language ) and it bothered me for so long, then I started accepting it

And then it ends up getting ruined by Moomoo.

I have an update to this, lol.

Bud stared messaging me on snapchat about Xmas and seemed kinda pissed, so I asked him what was up and he spilled. He said Cat has been pissing him off lately by trying to make him jealous, like letting other guys lick her face while she sits in their laps and the sending him the video on snapchat. Apparently he was looking for something casual/FWB, she said that’s what she wanted too but she thinks she can have him all to herself while she’s free to flirt. I told him to smoke a blunt and leave that bitch alone, and he said he already told her to hit the road with her petty shit.

The he tried to imply he was looking for a new FWB, he kept saying stuff like “I just want someone cool I can chil with and fuck without having to hate them or marry them”. Then he told me to start coming over to game again and I said I might, I got a PS4 so I might stay home for a while, let him find somebody to bone and then see if he still wants to hang out with me. Still glad Cat is gone tho, she was a rude bitch.

I had this dumb thing with a guy for fun and he ended up hitting tons of my insecurities (from a past experience with a guy) while I was already feeling depressed and it made me spiral. Since he's also roommates with two of my close friends and in our friend group, I'm too anxious to go over there anymore and I'm isolating myself. I don't know how to feel about it except depressed, anxious, uncomfortable, insecure, and overwhelmed with people right now. I feel dumb being "triggered" by it and it's not even necessarily his fault (not his fault I have depression, and he doesn't know what I'm insecure about), so I don't even really feel mad at him or maybe that's because I can't feel too much right now. But it's not like he had to be an asshole in the first place. I don't know.

A game is a fantasy or just something to do for funsies. He would not be with you for 4 years if he did not love you and find you and your chest size attractive.

At this point, I think you're projecting your insecurities on to your boyfriend and creating unnecessary problems in your relationships. I think you need to pause and try to objectively evaluate your relationship. Your boyfriend does not deserve that type of resentment because it is not fair to him. It also cannot make you feel good.

One of the hardest things I had to learn was to not get offended over past and present boyfriend(s) watching porn. It doesn't mean they find me unattractive or don't love me. It just means they like to wank it to something then immediately turn it off before go washing their hands.

And download Mystic Messenger or Dream Daddy. I freakin' love Otome games, but I'm not going to dump my boyfriend because he isn't like an animu. Your boyfriend also isn't going to leave you or love you any less because you are not an animu waifu. You being resentful over a game and fictional characters, however…

Seriously. Find some otome game or something you may like and play it. Mystic Messenger is the shiz.

I saw the anons responding to you and was ready to take your side, but…
>hunie pop
Anon pls. I played that game amd insisted my bf played with me too. It's fun and has some cute waifus, the "porn" scenes are part of the game and you need to pay attention to keep playing, it's not like you can wank while you're doing it.

However. I disagree with the other anons about letting it go if your bf goes the actual eroge or porn way. There's actual research that shows that watching porn raises dissatisfaction with one's partner and makes people more tolerant towards infidelity and other such harmful effects. Manchildren obsessed with anime girls with impossible standards are a real thing too and I don't think you should put up and stay with such a guy, because even if he does stay with you he'll still lust after other girls that fit his standards. I know the type, and they're the kind of guys who'll shower azn waifus and girls like anzu with compliments like blind idiots.

I don't think paying in the same coin and becoming obsessed with unrealistic shit yourself and developing impossible standards is a healthy thing to do. Repressing your own justified discomfort regarding porn isn't good either. I imagine he already knew you were insecure before you got too serious so, by the same argument other anons are making, if that bothered him he should have left long ago.

But. Don't freak out because of something like hunie pop. That's just silly.

>>218990
Anon, don’t let it get to you. Heck, we all want cute animu waifus like Nat, wherever we find them. Just because your bf has started playing the game, doesn’t mean he’s trying to make you very insecure. If however he begins to focus more on the game than you or constantly compare your chest to others and compare them to the characters in the game and he just all in all seems like he has lost interest in you, then yeah you can worry about your relationship and him. Other than that, if he’s been with you for 4 years, I’m pretty sure your chest size isn’t something that he focuses much on and just loves you the way you are

Honestly I don’t even know what Hunie pop is but judging from other anons, it seems like an otome game but it’s for guys and has similar concepts(?) and as someone who finds every character attractive in otome games and plays a bunch of them, my boyfriend is still my thick gentle king whom I love very much, a game isn’t going to change my feelings for him. I’m killing time with amazingly drawn characters and cheesy predictable story lines. So don’t jeopardize your relationship because of it, if you’re really unsure, it’s okay to talk about it with him, anon.

It won’t hurt to try it out and see if you can handle things and if not, that’s okay. You are your first priority, so don’t push yourself to do so many things all at once. However if you truly wish to volunteer because being around birds makes you happy, I highly encourage you to try it out and test it out with your schedule. I feel that when you do something you enjoy, your mind is able to work better and you can work out a better schedule that won’t overwhelm you.

>>219082
I’m sure that even if you struggle with getting out of bed, there are some simple exercises that you can do in bed that can help get the ball rolling for you. I also highly encourage you to eat much more fruit when you feel hungry
Such as a crisp apple, frozen berries, maybe even ask your boyfriend to send you little messages of different things that he loves about you every day, twice a day or soemthing like that and perhaps you can also do that same and maybe that can help improve your mindset a bit.

But now I realize as a person in my 20s don't have the female companionship I feel like I really need in my life. I grew up an only child and although I had friends growing up I feel it is difficult for me to relate to others especially other girls.
I don't get it why especially around females I get more socially anxious and feel much more pressure to put on a front. I want female friends but I always keep people at an arms distance. How can i get closer to people?
Christmas passed this year and bit made me realize how lonely I am start to become. I'm afraid I might sink into a depression while I am out of school and won't be back on campus for 2 months

No. 219137

>>219136
Not that anon but I can offer some insight. I used to cut as a teenager but got it under control. To be honest it's extremely hard to explain why you do it. I guess it's a primal instinct as other animals are prone to self-injury under stress as well (birds pick their feathers, some animals gnaw their skin, dolphins hit themselves against rocks etc). Some theory I heard was that physical pain is easier to understand than mental distress you can't cope with, so you need to cause an injury to yourself to help get your thoughts straight. For me I guess it was similar to that, I needed to distract myself and ended up slashing myself pretty hard. That's why anti-self harm strategies are based on distraction. But some people cut in a fit of aggression and they just want to punish themselves.

I'm still struggling with depression (nearing my 30's, been depressed since 12) and during my lowest points I still want to cut. It's a very comforting thought when you're feeling suicidal and physically sick from the stress. But like I said I got it under control years ago and distracting myself worked really well.

I spent the entire day being on imageboards instead of self-improving and working on my projects. I hate myself, I really do. Tomorrow's a new day and I have blocked all the sites that I use for procrastination.

I also want to read more books, watch kino movies, learn drawing, study languages and I won't be able to achieve any of that if I mismanage my time.

I’m so sick of my friends liking and sharing depression memes and nihilism memes and generally acting like tortured souls, only to turn around and tell me to get over it or to “just X/Y/Z” if I make the mistake of telling them how I feel when I’m not the best of moods. I feel like my mental illness has become an accessory that people pin to their shirts to show off for pity, but when it comes to my mental issues like my anger, my paranoia, my trust issues and my fear of loneliness I just need to shut up and get over it, because mine isn’t as aesthetic as everyone else’s (that they don’t have). All this bullshit about ~raising awareness~ for the mentally ill and yet I’ve been struggling since I turned 18 to pretendnim okay long enough to hold down a job to keep my head above water. I’d give and do absolutely anything to not have these problems, or to at least be as ~depressed and lonely~ as everyone else claims to be, because I’m so fucking sick and lonely and I don’t have anyone left who is actually there for me.

Anon I really feel for you. It's true, mental illnesses are being glamorized and it sucks ass. It's quirky and cute, until you're actually ill, then people classify you as a crazy person and they run away because they're scared. I understand how you feel.
Honestly if your friends don't respect your feelings, the best thing to do is to drop them. Make sure to talk to your family about it, see a doctor/therapist if you're not already. It's so important to know everything you go through is valid and important. Please don't feel bad because of 'friends' that don't respect/acknowledge your conditions. I really hope things will get better for you.

My long term LDR bf and I aren't as close as we used to be, we used to be on skype 24/7 and the replies would be almost instant. I know he loves me very much and we see each other when we can but the problem is, we're both mentally ill and hes been going through some shit lately and not having him around is being very hard on me, in addition to that he doesnt allow me to have any friends so I'm just left alone when he isn't around, I've been getting extremely depressed and I don't know what to do, I don't even know where I would find people to talk to considering I'm too anxious to leave my house.

The smoke alarms in my apartment are all sorts of fucked up. Almost every 2-3 weeks I trigger the one in my bedroom in the morning when I turn off my ceiling fan. I've figured out now, however, it's when I flick the switch too slowly. But when you hear that right after your alarm to wake up goes off, it's not going to be a good morning.

And just now, which is a new occurrence, when I got out of the shower… both the one in my bedroom and the one in my living room triggered. I don't know what made them shut off, but there was a solid 30 seconds of smoke alarms.

I've had maintenance come and look at my bedroom one twice and they can't find anything wrong/get it to trigger. I'm about to start recording myself getting up in the morning and turning my fan off, hoping I can catch it that way because this is ridiculous.

They can freeze and close your account whenever the fuck they want without disclosing a reason and if you've got money on it then there's no chance you'll see it sooner than after 180 days, if at all. There are several stories about how this ruined little businesses big time.
If a buyer decides they need some extra money, they can claim the item you sent them was broken/didn't arrive and they don't have to prove shit.
Someone gives you a refund? Paypal holds it for two weeks because fuck you.
You made a new account, sold some stuff and received money on it? They hold the first 10 transfers for 21 Days or you have to wait 60 days after the first transaction until you don't have to wait for your own fucking money anymore. Meanwhile you have to pay all the shipping costs without actually receiving the intended money for it.
You've got badly scammed, your account hacked or you can't login anymore and need to contact the support as soon as possible? Prepare to wait 30 minutes on hold, until an overworked employee with a way too thick accent tries to tell you barely related steps that don't help at all. You try to contact them via email? Don't expect a reply, not even after the third email. You contact their facebook? "You should try to call the support anon, I hope your issue gets solved, good luck lol." A few days or weeks later, your account is closed.
You try to send money, accidently type something wrong twice and try to send it for the third time? Oops, your account is now restricted, you can't send money, receive money, withdraw money, deposit money, remove your bank account information or close your account anymore. Please give is your credit card information to make sure you're not a scammer. What, you don't have a credit card or don't want to add one? Well, too bad.

I'm pretty sure my bf is doing sketchy shit but I don't know how to prove it. I don't want to snoop through his shit because it's dishonest, but at the same time I do because the suspicion is killing me. (I have BPD so it's hard for me to tell if I'm making shit up or not.)

I've tried talking to him about it but he reassures me nothing is wrong. I know for a fact he's done SOME sketchy stuff because people have told me. I've even dumped him a few times over his obvious boundary issues but always go back because he begs and acts so heartbroken.

I know I should just dump him and wash my hands of the issue but I don't want to be alone. I moved to this could try to be with him and it's been a nightmare ever since.

Does anyone else here feel bad they're not hot enough to be raped or sexually harassed?

If rape is about power, and not about sexual desire, then why is there usually ZERO white male on black female rapes in America (annually), despite there being thousands of black male on white female rapes annually?

Men don't take the risk to rape women if they aren't worth it, and the lack of attention I get from men really makes me feel worthless. No man has ever been sexually aggressive to me.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

There are thousands of WM/BF rapes every year, they just don’t get reported, or when they do their rape kits get put on a shelf in a warehouse and the case gets buried by the white man’s public defender/attorney. Rape statistics are wildly inaccurate because women who try to report a rape are treated like shit unless they’re from the perfect set of circumstances and have a mountain of damnig evidence, which a majority of rape victims don’t have.

Any man who says he raped a woman because she was too beautiful or too sexy or showing too much skin is just displacing blame for doing something they knew was wrong because they don’t want to get into trouble. The idea that men who can’t control their sexual urges because their penis overrides their brain is fucking vulgar and absolute bullshit.

If that’s actually scientifically true then men need to be placed on hormone blockers starting at puberty until a solution can be reached were they have control over their bodies so that women don’t have to walk around thinking they need to look or not look a certain way to avoid being raped. There is never any situation where a rapist “couldn’t help” raping someone because they were too attracted to them. That’s a cop out excuse for a lack of self control and accountability.

I just have to say all this. First off, this is petty as shit but I hate how people (especially like, ~21 year old girls) now say "v pretty" for "very pretty" or like "p funny" or whatever. Is this a millennial thing or just an instathot thing? And I hate all the "YASS QUEEN SLAY!" from all these dumb bitches with the dog Snapchat filter on. We can still tell your nose is huge. I might just be a grumpy late 20s bitch but idk, if that's the case then so be it and get off my lawn. Scrolling through any social media comments is soo depressing, every youngish girl looks exactly the same. I can't wait until this stupid instagram makeup trend passes. It's just sad to see so little individual style and it honestly kinda pisses me off that this psuedo goth shit is in, like pastel goth whatnot, because ten years ago I got absolutely ripped apart for wearing black all the time. Now that's all these bitches wear. You see them walking around with their hair done up in those 2 stupid tight ass braids they all do waltzing around in high waisted shorts, black everything, boots, and huge Juvederm lips with black/white/silver/"cotton candy" hair and huge perfect eyebrows. But oh don't get me started on the silver hair trend… I mean if you wanna dye your hair grey 20 years prematurely go for it. And if I see someone else with fake freckles I might punch them. Vapid and soulless dumb hoes. I never thought I'd say this but I almost preferred the "preppy" tan cheerleader basic type Hollister/Abercrombie and Fitch trend that was before this. At least anytime someone didnt fit the mold it was obvious right away and it was like, "oh my people!". The guys are gross now too, I hate the almost Macklemore style hair that's still in for whatever fucking reason. And gauges. Wearing their best v neck and and covered in traditional tattoos off the flash from a shitty tattoo place (I'm sorry but I really hate that style of tattoo). Okay I think I'm done.

I want to be in a relationship so bad, but I don’t know any guys my age or how to meet them. Guys I do meet, I have no chemistry with or they just want to fuck. And the few guy friends I do have won’t introduce me to anybody, and my friendships with them don’t last anyway because either their GF doesn’t like them hanging out with me, or they cross the line and suggest we be FWB which I honestly don’t think I can do without getting emotionally attached. That’s why I say I want a relationship, but everyone my age acts like the R word means they have to give up on live and get married and never have fun again.


I fucking want to be married. I want to know what it’s like to have someone kiss me just because they want to and tell me they love me and mean it not just platonically. I want to sleep next to my other half every night and go through my day knowing he’ll always be there for me. But I know that coming from a fucked up family and not ever having any healthy relationships in my life, probably means nobody like that will ever exist for me. I’ve never been in a real relationship because since I hit puberty, the only offers I get are “I like you and I want to make you feel good, but I want to keep my options open and don’t want to feel tied down”. I’ve never been approached by a guy and felt that he was genuinely attracted to me and not just my massive fibrocystic tits.

I broke off from my co-dependant relationship with my boyfriend. It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do, I've made previous attempts but he always drags me back in. I don't have any other friends to turn to anymore.

He makes me feel like I'm the one ruining his life by giving up and leaving and I just aren't doing good enough while he is "doing everything" to make it better. Not excusing that he doesn't approve of me doing anything that doesn't directly involve or benefit him, and has said things in the past few days alone like telling me that I deserved my child abuse (which he is one of the only people I've opened up to about) and it messes with my head. I still love him. I'm still crazy for him but I know in my head that this isn't a right situation for me to put myself in. Now I just need to brave it alone, I hope I did the right thing.

i don't really know what to do.
A guy I've lost contact with years ago (we went on a one date) is kind of cornering me now. Suddenly he started to email me, I realized after few weeks because I receive a lot of stuff from bots with similar handles. Those emails… he explained a lot, talked about his problems. Though I had an unpleasant feeling he thinks of me as of some manic pixie dream girl who's there to rescue him; definitely idealizes me much. I hate when people do that, it's dehumanizing.
I didn't really know how to deal with him, it was Christmas, I came to the conclusion I don't have time for this bullshit. But despite saying "you don't have to answer me, I don't expect you to do so" he started to hit me up on every social media he has of mine, became active (like posting stories on insta, snap, messenger) even though he has basically been MIA all this time. I can't help but feel it's directed at me.
I gotta add, some stuff from the emails he sends me definitely count as oversharing. Like, you read this and feel uh I didn't want to know this, why???

I started to feel uneasy.
I planned to reply at first (though with hope that he gets a hint and gives up before I decide what to answer) but now I don't know. I'm really close to just blocking him on every platform, without ever reaching out. On the other hand I don't feel threatened, just uncomfortable. And we share a lot of similarities, interests… maybe he's just desperate and in a bad place…? BUT still, I'm getting the creeps. My friend joked that the next step is him throwing stones at my window, ha-ha bitch, why do I feel like this may happen? I really don't know if I'm paranoid and should be more understanding or he's going too far.

This is a bit old, but I had many friendships like this. All of my "best friends" had this dynamic with me.

Funnily enough, I was in fact going through much worse shit than they were, but eventually I realized being their support was a form of escapism for me, to avoid addressing my own problems. Not sure if that is the same case for you, but thought I might mention it.

They would never ask how I was and if I ever tried to talk about what I was going through, they would just say "Sowwy :(" or belittle my issues, which I now (nearly 5 years later) realize where HUGE problems and I could have really used some perspective.

Long story short, once you stop, they will move on to someone else they can suck that kind of attention from. These are not mutual friendships, and you basically set that boundary early on so it's hard to change. If they actually cared, they would show that to you in some way.

I eventually stopped giving them that kind of support, and was more realistic about being supportive (empathize like an adult instead of trying to listen to all their feelings or try to fix) and they all stopped talking to me pretty quickly. Sucks, but I am so much happier not getting calls about some petty thing that made them upset on the daily anymore. Now I have friends who I can purely enjoy our time together with having fun, no emotional support needed unless it's like, actually serious.

I know it’s been almos a week since
Christmas, but I’m still super salty about this so I’m gonna post anyway.

2016/2017 fucking sucked for me, I lost my job and my bills piled up and my credit cards got maxed out, and I had to move in with my mother. Also, the guy I was seeing dumped me for a younger chubby girl he met online and they got married ~1 month after moving in together. Long story short, haven’t been in the best place lately, emotionally or financially.

So my birthday is also in December, and my mom kept asking me what I wanted. I said the only thing I needed right now was money tbh so I could chip away at my debt. She said no no, I want to get you something you want for your birthday/Christmas. I tried to tell her even a little cash was more helpful than anything I wanted, but she kept asking and she knows how sad I’ve been this last year, so I caved and told her I wanted a PS4. She told me, okay, I’ll get it for you.

Well, FF to Christmas and she hands me a card with $250 in it. Says she saw online that it was $249.99 at Best Buy on sale. I asked her why she didn’t go get it and wrap it? She says, “I wasn’t sure which one you wanted.” Apparently the words “PlayStation 4, standard, 1 terabyte” send to her via text message wasn’t specific enough.

Problem is, this is 4pm on Christmas Day and they’re closed. The next day I have off is the following Sunday, and by the time I get to Best Buy the price has gone back up to $299.99. So I leave, go to the bank, and deposit the money to put on my credit cards, because I’m too broke to hold onto $250 for another week until I get paid, to throw another $100 towards a PS4 and a game for it. Originally, all I was supposed to do was buy it and pay for my first game myself, then save up for more. But instead I have to be a responsible adult because my credit cards are about to go to collections and my credit is shit, I just turned 25 and if I blow free money on frivolous bullshit like a game console I’ll be living here forever. Im just so pissed off at myself for getting my hopes up, she does this shit every time I’m stupid enough to ask her for anything.

I’m not really the type to fall for people at all and haven’t experienced it but I think it’s happening to me and the saddest part is that I’m not even in a relationship with this person. I developed this massive crush on a coworker, that at first I thought was just that a crush but honestly it’s become worse. I legitimately can’t sleep because I stay up all night thinking of all I’m doing wrong and how I keep embarrassing myself and how out of my league he is. The thought that he could possibly be out there with other people really bothers and saddens me. I’ve had relationships before but I never really felt this strongly about the people I dated so not sure why this is happening now.
I know I don’t really stand a chance and all I’m going to get out of this is probably just more depressed and anxious but I really can’t control it. The fact that guys are very complicated and send nothing but mixed signals doesn’t help. One day he’ll talk to me for hours but another day won’t even say hello to me when he passes by. I have no idea how to deal with these feelings I wish they could just disappear. The fact that im extremely average looking ( possibly even below average) and have zero self confidence doesn’t help at all.

So the first half of last year I ended up losing 30 lbs and then the last half I gained 15 of it it back and I am just so depressed over it. I can’t stop emotional eating/binging. I have such a fucked relationship with food. I just want to be able to lose weight and not have it rule my life, and then when I try and relax I just gain it back! I’m so tired of being overweight. I have a shit apple body type and when I gain weight I just look pregnant and bloated. I’m just so frustrated because I also know what I need to do but day in and day out I don’t do it.

I woke up early this morning to study for college exams but I can't concentrate due to tiredness. My sleep schedule is fucked because I've been listening to my family arguing the last few nights and now I'm used to not sleeping until 4am.

I've always been shit at exams and retaining information my whole life so I'm really worried about them. I feel like I have to work twice as hard as everyone else just to get a pass, while people who get outstanding remarks always brag about how "Oh I didn't even study that much! uwu" It's such an unfair system.

In 2016, I was busting my ass working full-time while in graduate school full-time and I found out I was getting laid off in the beginning of November. My dad (we were estranged) was found dead a week before Thanksgiving. My best friend was pissy that I was not able to attend her 30th birthday party at the end of November. I woooonder why…Not like I found out I was getting laid off and my other parent (albeit estranged) died. My mom died April 2015. I was so burnt out by NYE 2016.

Cue to this year, I am able to support myself with some money left over working ~30 hours a week.

I got called into my boss' office. I have not been late in over a month. I work at a hospital and am dressed so conservatively, I would fit in at a Republican convention.

Currently, I work with victims of sexual assault and we're funded via VOCA and a few other grants. Turns out, we did not get all the grant funding and I am getting laid off along with a couple of other people whose jobs were covered by the aforementioned grant funding they did not receive.

This is my second job in a little over a year I got laid off from. One, I know it is not my fault since I live in the state where the governor may be named Scott Walker and all sorts of funding is getting cut.

On the other hand, I am 28 years old. I feel so humiliated admitting that I lost another job and have to go searching for jobs again. One, that looks like shit on my resume since before I took the first job that lost funding, I was at my previous job for ~3 years.

I just feel like such a loser with not being able to keep a job. I was just catching up on bills, so I am sick of being constantly broke and not able to do the shit my peers are. I also hate how irresponsible I look: I started dating my boyfriend right before I landed this job and I think that I look so unreliable.

I feel so lost. I broke up with my fiancé in April because he wouldn't stop doing steroids. We just bought a house together.

What if I get fired? I,m just used to someone being there, just in case. I work two jobs and going for a different degree part time. My job is a shitty call center/ corporate job.

It's my birthday tomorrow and I just feel so empty inside.
The last 1 1/2 years sucked so much for me so seeing that my life has not improved after a year (or in general not that it has ever been great) is the worst.

I hate going to university but it's the only thing I'm doing right now.
I don't have passion or talent for anything else so I have to keep moving whilst in reality I want to fucking die.
I'm so jealous of people who have the energy to do things. Even with 10 hours of sleep I'm still so very tired.
I hate my life so much.
I'm almost 22 and I've accomplished nothing in my life. I know many people will say that it's still very young but society does not think so.
I already did 2 more years than necessary in school. Not because I'm stupid but because of a fucked up childhood. I'm still only average. This wouldn't bother me much if at least I had something to be passionate about. There is nothing. I feel so empty and stupid.

I know this is mean but I wish I had better friends and I was a better friend myself. Nowadays I feel like I'm only sticking around because we know each other for so long now.
But this friendship doesn't feel like I have any kind of back up.
Might be because every one is mentally sick so we just silently agreed to not talk about it idk.
I just want a genuine friendship.
Maybe I'm the problem here. I mean I'm definetly part of it but maybe it's just me.

I'm thinking about killing myself so much the last few months. I'm a coward though.
Also I feel like If I would go through with it my sister would probably kill herself too or stop attending her dream university.
Idk but the Logan Paul video kinda did it for me too. I saw that man and I just thought that it does not look so bad and how I could hang myself as well.

I just want to cry but I can't my sister is currently doing stuff, I feel like she knows how bad I'm doing right now, I don't want to make her feel bad.

No one actually knows how bad my depressions have become. I also don't want to reach out for help because I think people won't take me serious or I won't get the help I need.
I just want everything to stop.
Sorry for this messy rant. English isn't my first language.

I feel so stupid all the time. I graduated high school over a year ago and failed out of college and I just feel stupid. I feel stupid because I want to be a singer/songwriter. I want to be cute and famous. I still want to go to college because I don’t want to be a stupid celebrity and I need to have something to fall back on. I’ll probably change my major to political science and if I can’t be a singer-songwriter I can just be a lawyer or a politician or w/e, and I can be famous that way.

I used to push myself so hard in high school, I started taking college classes when I was 16. I went into my first year of college as an academic sophomore. I had to move back home after I failed both semesters my first year. I was able to get all my classes turned to W’s (withdrawals) because I pretty much had a nervous breakdown.

I’ve been so depressed and anxious the past year and singing is the only thing that brings me the tiniest bit of happiness. I like singing and I think I’m actually good at it. I’m also good at writing but not necessarily poetry, but with practice I think I could write songs.

Surprisingly good advice. I suffer from pretty bad anxiety that sometimes prevents me from going to sleep (and as many of you probably know, lack of sleep then makes the anxiety even worse and it can get to quite terrible levels). One thing I've noticed - after I told myself "If I'm meant to die, then I'm going to die, and there's nothing I can do about it" - I was finally able to fall asleep. The fact that I'm going to die and there's nothing I can do about it actually calmed me down. It's not exactly what you wrote anon, but mine's coming from the anxiety side (while yours is the depression side). And anxiety and depression are pretty close to each other on the mental health spectrum (I tend to oscillate between them).

I'm sorry you feel that way, anon. But do you think you'll be happy once you're famous? To pursue a career in music, you'll have to give absolutely one hundred percent and more. Everything that must be on your mind is music. All of your money will go towards music and you won't see a penny of it for a long time. Fame will fuck you up. Fame will cause more anxiety.

I'm not telling you to not pursue your dreams, I'm just warning you. (I'm a sound engineer in a studio)

I think I’d be happy because I’d be doing something I love. Thanks for the input, it’s good to know what I need to expect and how demanding of a career it is, especially in the beginning. Also, being a sound engineer sounds pretty cool.

I’ve been thinking about this for the past month and I kind of have a plan, it’s just the whole thought of going from majoring in microbiology to being a singer just sounds silly. But even if I wasn’t thinking about pursuing a career in singing, I don’t think I could go back to a STEM field. I don’t fit in with those types of people.

Hey anon, don’t be angry that you didn’t do it sooner - it’s okay to recognize that you should have taken other steps earlier on, but you can’t change the past - only your future - which you are on your way to doing! Just use it as a motivator, don’t fall back into your old habits of not pushing yourself and hiding in your comfort zone, and allow yourself to feel that uneasy feeling of a new situation. You really never know until you try. Proud of you anon for going into school’ and if it makes you feel any better, i has a few 30-40 year olds in my college courses.

I'm very frustrated with myself at the moment.

I used to have an ED, I've recovered from it.

Even before I realised I had an ED, I've had trouble talking about food in public. I've always felt shame about talking about it.

After recovery (around 10 months ago), I haven't had a lot of trouble talking about food with strangers, classmates, friends, etc. That has been a breeze.

But: I've started hanging out with a guy, we have a lot of feelings for one another. This is a situation on his own. We want to take it slow, let's put it at that. When I'm hanging out with him, I can't ask him if he has any food for me, etc. I feel like an idiot. I know eating is a necessity, but damn. I'm really not sure why I'm still having trouble with this. I just want myself to grow up by now. (we have talked about my ED a few weeks ago, but since he wants to take it slow, I don't want to feel like a burden or anything. Maybe I should talk about this with him.)

Having an internal crisis about if I should take my previously long-term boyfriend back.

I have strong feelings for him and we were so close we were practically joined at the hip but that was the problem. I lost most of my friends and he openly disapproved of most my remaining friends. He disapproved of me meeting new people in my hobbies so I dropped them. He would sometimes mock me for the things I did or said jokingly but it hurt. Yet it all felt worth it until a few incidents where he was incredibly cruel and hurtful because he was also charming, romantic and generous. I'm an introvert so I was happy to have one person who understood me and seemed to care only about me, we shared so many interests and did everything together. It was eventually overwhelming me in many ways and he had said unforgivable things to me so I ended it but I miss him so much and he does want me back. He can be so sweet and he seems so hurt by me leaving, even willing to change some. It's messing with my head.

"It's" not messing with anything. HE is messing with YOU because he's a manipulative, emotionally abusive, controlling fuck.

Do you know what happens, statistically, to people who go back to their abusive partners? The abuse escalates. The abuse escalates because this serves validate the abuser's belief that they own you and can do anything to you, and that you'll STILL come back to them, despite this.

>I'm an introvert so I was happy to have one person who understood me and seemed to care only about me, we shared so many interests and did everything together


He has, and will continue to use this against you so that he can further isolate you from any potentially uplifting, healthy relationships with other people. He wants you to be dependent on him and him alone. It's not because he cares about you. It's because he views you as a literal extension of himself. You are not an individual with a separate mind, agenda and needs to him. You are his property. The only reason he's acting hurt and claiming to change is because you've left him, and he can't stand that.

Please, anon. Do not even CONSIDER taking him back. Everything you've described in your post is TEXTBOOK ABUSE. It does not get better, but YOU can do better by refusing to let the cycle continue and cutting all contact with him.

Total lunatic here with some sort of specific help but also general info/personal stuff???

I genuinely think that everyone has value, I think that it's up to you to decide for yourself what that is though (The hard part.) Whatever the fuck lights your fire when nothing else does do that until you find the next thing imo. If there is anything you've been waiting for in your life start planning it now. Even if you don't have the pieces together yet. Write it down or make it real however works best for you.

Some ways that help me combat suicidal ideation or any intrusive thoughts are to: Identify the negative thoughts for what they actually are, re-frame them neutrally/positively, and set some goals. Those goals can be as long term as move to a different country or as short term as eat a snack and go to sleep.

Honestly this shit is still hard for me to remember when I'm really depressed/manic and do but when I do it I feel way less awful.

Crisis lines are a good option if you need someone to talk to. Really helped me when I was too wacked to do that by myself. The one local to me is also blunt as hell as I appreciate but from what I can tell most won't shy away from having an open non-judgmental dialog about suicide unless they have An Agenda.

I’m sure he would be quite the perfect man…. if he didn’t possess all of those extremely terrible qualities you listed in your first post. Reality is anon, a lot of manipulators and abuses have woooonndderful, charming, enchanting personalities and traits - that’s how they get their victims to stay. If they were all bad no one would put up with it or think “it’s worth the hurt” to stay with them etc. He will never change, he will always have these terrible traits. Take off your rose coloured glasses, you’re lonely, you’re sad, you’re missing him… but see the reality of the situation. Take it from me and the other anons who’ve been in those previous situations, someone better will come along, your ex is trash.

Feeling this post.

I can't find my original post but it turns out this guy I liked blocked me. Which ~triggered~ me cause beforehand he was hitting all my insecurities from the last guy I dealt with and this last guy had threatened to block me multiple times while I was going through very severe depression and at the time I felt like I had nobody else. I'm moved away from the original guy now, but this guy that blocked me lives with two of my closest friends and now I have so much anxiety that I don't want to go over there but at the same time my depression is so bad that I really need someone to hang out with and it used to help me to go over there and hang out until 3 or 4am with someone. Today was extremely hard and I just stayed home feeling so tired all day and cried and did self harm a little. I feel like I'm trapped and I can't do anything about the situation with him because I'm blocked. I just want things back to normal, no matter if I'm friends with him or not. I'm just a mess. I want to go over there without caring but I start panicking at even the thought about it. Just knowing he probably hates me.

I'm mad because losing weight has made me uglier. Over the last few months, I've managed to get my weight down and stable and lost about a stone. I was super happy to see the difference in places like my legs and stomach but I've noticed that it's not been proportionate in my face at all. My smile lines are SO pronounced now that i feel beyond ugly. I've always had chubby/dimpled cheeks and they haven't reduced at all so it looks like i just have two balls of fat in my face. plus they make my eyes super squinty due to all the fat in my cheeks. Maybe no one else notices but i do and it's shit.

Not gunna deny it. I sucked.

I was in a major bad place not even a year ago. I was really close to my mom and her sudden death from type 1 diabetes just fucked me up–especially since I am a type 1 diabetic. I made some poor decisions by fucking an ex-boyfriend.

When I met the second boyfriend in the story, things were fine at first and everyone was happy. He was older and my estranged father died suddenly from a heart attack. He was dead for about a month before anyone found him. Since my brother is in another state and no one else in the family wanted to do it, I went and identified his body. The Medical Examiner showed me a black and white photo of his face and even then, it haunted me for a long time. He had no life insurance and everything was dropped on my lap not even a week after finding out I was going to lose my job. I fell into a depression and it was a downward spiral from there.

I was not a good friend during that time and my post was petty as hell. I was feeling angry and petty. I'm just hurt since I thought a lot was water under the bridge and did my best to be a better friend to everyone. (Loaned her money–and honestly, I am not going to see it again. That's the gamble I took–attended art shows of hers, helped sell paintings, took her out of coffee dates, ordered food to her place on her birthday since we were both sick, bought paintings since I like supporting my friend's art. On the other hand, she helped me out with dogsitting when I took two dogs to a pool on Labor Day before the city drained the pool and insisted on buying me a latte on my birthday even though I know she is not as financially well off as me.

The point is, I thought we were friends and I was just blindsided by her bringing up things she said she was no longer mad about, and completely made up something I supposedly said before citing my Vegas trip to dump me as a friend.

I don't mean to be dramatic or create drama. Maybe I am so defensive because I recognize how petty I am being since I have my fee fees hurt.

I have never dated a friend's ex, no matter how long they have been broken up. It would be too weird to me. However, if she came to me and let me know they were seeing each other, I would have been cool with it.

There is no future for me. Uni is super hard, I chose my major when I was feeling better mentally, now I know it's useless because I won't work in that field. How could I even imagine. I'm socially inept and can't even raise a voice and I break in sweat whenever I need to do anything. I thought of it as my back up plan, because my main goal was to be a writer. But I have not written any story for 2 years. I'm talentless. I can't finish anything, everything is shit fanfic tier. I've lost it. The spark is gone. It's a barren ground.
After years of being great at everything, I'm shit at everything. I don't enjoy my hobbies. I have 3 friends and 2 of them only use me to feel better and the other one, my bestie cracks jokes when I vent about wanting to kill myself. My parents, always so loving and understanding, won't support me because they can't believe me, such a smart pretty girl can be depressed. They lowkey know what's going on, but they don't want to hear it, they take it as a personal failure.
For a long time I had that resolve that I have to look after myself because no one else will and I was managing well, but now I'm just stopping to care. I've never hit that level of bottom before. Maybe I have never been truly depressed until now. It's totally different. I'm not sure if I'll pull myself together this time. It's not worth it. This empty existence is not worth it.

>This empty existence is not worth it.

I was in the same head space as you this time last year. It was so debilitating. No one around could begin to understand what I was saying about it. My work has a mental health support dept and I asked my boss to schedule an appointment. I worked with a psychiatrist for a few weeks (the work was really hard because she asked some difficult questions I had been avoiding).

It was worth it because she taught me some life tools to use when things get too hard. I can cope better with life now. Sometimes you have to take yourself out of the current situation, go to a trained professional and talk about things. They won’t tell you if you are right or wrong, crazy or normal, broken beyond repair or abnormal. A good one will be able to give you coping skills so when the black dog comes for a visit he doesn’t end up overstaying his welcome.

Maybe your uni has someone to help you with this?

It isn't the first time i am writing on here about this, but the last few months, maybe even years, have been absolute shit for me.

In less than a month i'll have exams; now i've had 2 weeks off and i haven't done anything.
All i do every single day is sit in front of my computer; i can't bring myself to shower, brush my teeth, eat something else than junk food or sleep, i simply have zero motivation, but i know that the longer i put off studying the more stressed i will be.

Before i started college i loved reading, studied a lot, i had so many dreams and now…

My school offers counseling, but only at a time there i have a class i absolutely have to attend (the irony), plus i would be too anxious to go anyway.

I'm not even expectinng to be happy and free of my anxiety etc anymore, i just want to know a way to get myself motivated enough to study, so that i at least won't hate myself for butchering these exams… Any tips?

Anon, I'm in a similar place - if you haven't already you should look at the counseling services your school has, they're usually free for students. Mine helped me get an outside therapist and a psychiatrist, I still struggle to cope and have been really suicidal for the past few months, but having someone to talk to about it is a weight off your shoulders, and it's a huge help if you want to take some time off school, go to treatment etc. Life isn't as empty and you're not as inept and worthless as depression makes you think.

Burnout. Happened to me a lot but I still managed a graduate degree. I either did most things in baby steps or last-minute crams. I would definitely recommend the former.

Do you have textbooks to read? Allocate a couple hours a day for studying. Take your books and every couple pages or so place a sticky note tab to indicate a fifteen to twenty minute break for a snack or nap. Set a timer and do NOT go back onto your computer because it's a guaranteed distraction. The breaks are to clear your mind and get you to refocus if you get frustrated.
Write down notes and type a summarized study guide so that way if you don't remember something you can reference the sheet instead of having to skim/reread the chapters you've already done. Having to repeat work is extremely demoralizing.

If you have digital text to study from I suggest going to the campus's library or computer labs to do your work. I don't know if you feel the same way, but at my campus I was embarrassed to be browsing on my facebook or youtube while I was there using their computers. In fact, computers were such a limited quantity during finals time that other students would be pissed off if they caught people fucking around on social media instead of doing work.
Tbh it was social pressure that was good for me. Plus I saw other people working hard and it made me want to do the same.

Anyway I don't know if what I'm saying is particularly helpful but it really helped me under my circumstances.

thanks based anons, you helped me get more motivated.

Not even a text to it.
But that only confirmed my conviction that I am alone in this and I need to do something, because no mighty knight will come to rescue me.

It's fucking bullshit that I saved my virginity for so long just to be with people who never bothered saving theirs. My ex bf condemned me for sucking dick once while he's done everything under the fucking sun.

I had a big crush on this guy for months and the only time he made an effort to see me was after I returned his interest in doing sexual things with me. How come the only time a guy is interested in me is when he thinks he'll get some? Fuck off, I just want to get coffee or something. But now this guy I liked is coming to my house after we discussed fooling around and I really don't want to do it. I don't want to have sex. I just want to see him. How pathetic is that? Maybe it's time for me to lose my virginity.

Don't get me wrong. I want to kiss him and do things with him but I want it to mean something. This just feels like a hookup. And I'm only 18. Way too young for this sort of thing.

But I'm nothing different than a free whore at this point. Having some guy over just to do things. Maybe I should at least ask to be paid.

He said he liked me in romantic ways but he seemed way more interested once we started discussing sex. "We have to meet up before the 15th when school starts." He said. Fucker, we could have met way before that, but now you're only rushing to see me since you think I'm going to fuck you.

Maybe ill just act really reclusive and shy so he won't be as inclined to touch me. I have severe OCD so whenever I do something vaguely sexual, even not just sex itself, I start thinking I'm going to get pregnant. I know ill be in a bad mental spot after I see him.

Whatever. I'm moving away soon anyway. It doesn't matter. Maybe I will just kill myself this weekend.

Recently i was excited to see my best friend, who i hadn't seen in a month because she just started dating a girl and has been spending the night at her house constantly.
randomly i get a text from her asking "also i invited amy (her gf) and john (their mutual friend) to come"
1- i've met bot of them, they're nice people but extremely extroverted. i wanted to be with my friend because i'm comfortable around her and dont have to 'try'.
2- none of these people can drive. i always end up being everyone's fucking uber and im sick of it, but as soon as i say this im just 'being a bitch'.

Anyway, i ended up sending her some long paragraphs about how i don't feel like driving all around town tomorrow because im still stressed from school, and i just wanted to spend time with her. and she just left me on read and never responded, but continued to use all other social media.

THEN i call my other friend to just talk about it and i asked her if she was free that day, she said yes, and later on i texted her if we could spend time together to which she responded - "No"
at this point i was already feeling pissed off so i just said "so why did you tell me you were free then lol" to which she said "my life doesn't revolve around you.." among other things.

im so pissed because its such a nice day outside and i was excited to go to the park and museum to relieve stress, not go shopping and go to chinatown and do photoshoots. also, they can all have fun and drink but i can't because i have to drive everyone around.
sorry for the stupid immature rant.

If you can, space out your education, this might be harder if you go to an expensive school, but still.
It took me 2 extra years to finish university, during the last year I averaged one class/project per semester. I literally could not get myself out of bed before and would just have multiple meltdowns before every exam. Reducing your courseload means you have fewer things to stress over.
I didn't graduate top of my class but it came out ok and I haven't failed a class since I slowed down (currently doing my master's).

i've been struggling with intense study-related anxiety for the last 5 years (and depression as a result) and know your situation well anon - i'm so sorry things have been so difficult for you.

when i can bring myself to use it, one thing that really helps me to get something done is the pomodoro method - i tell myself i'll try to work for at least 10, 15, 25 minutes (depending on how bad i'm feeling) and then i can stop. it feels a lot more manageable and even if you can only work for small chunks of time, it's infinitely better than nothing, and half of the time i actually feel ok enough to keep going. i like using an app or browser extension so i don't have to worry about when to stop, but you could use a timer too.

another thing that helps me to drown out the anxiety is working with earphones in and whatever music - sometimes familiar, sometimes a random jazz/study playlist - it seems to distract my brain away from the anxious thoughts. my earphones are broken right now but today i managed to do some job-related work for an hour by blasting mitski loud and that seemed to work too.

the last piece of advice i have is to try and get yourself out of the house and to a public place if you can manage it - somewhere like a quiet library or a cafe. sometimes this is enough to take me out of my thoughts and help with motivation and focus.

i really hope you feel better soon, anon. if you can, it could help to talk to a doctor and let your school know what's happening - my school has always tried to be accommodating (relaxing deadlines, postponing exams) even after i've messed things up repeatedly by being unwell.

(i just realised i'm late responding but glad you're feeling a little better! the realisation that "i'm the only one who can do this" has also helped me generate motivation in the past - good luck with seeing the counsellor, the relief afterwards is so worth it)

I love listening to music so whenever i do while studying it makes me feel guilty, like i'm not actually getting things done? Even if i manage to get myself motivated enough to study i sometimes end up reading a paper and realize at the end that i was actually daydreaming about something else the whole time…?

NAYRT - I think it's kind of pseudoscience, but you can also try binaural beats/Alpha waves. I listened to the videos I linked below quite a bit while studying for finals, it really helped me calm down and focus because you have the noise to distract you from the anxiety and also to cover outside noise.

But like, you're 16, stop preaching about marriage and having babies and stop being racist out in the open with your actual face and name attached to it! Not to mention it was obvious she's doing it for the male attention and asspats that come with being ~different than the other girls. The message I sent was pretty harsh but damn. You're 16.

I hate my friend so much sometimes, she can be so dumb.

Today was her first time ordering a cocktail from a restaurant and she ordered an old fashioned. She then complained when it tasted bad, because duh, it's made of bourbon. Then she asked the waitress to switch out her drink and got a different drink. She also complained it also tasted bad. I told her cocktails tended to taste bad because liquor tastes bad. And then she was like nuh-uh, it would taste better when she went to a $20 cocktail bar. She then sounded disappointed I didn't know of any cocktail bars in the city even though I grew up here. But I already had said I didn't like cocktails.

I really hate how my friend is so materialistic and clueless.

I have never seen a coworker of mine get this frustrated/angry at a fellow employee before. Granted, it was a quiet angry… but you could tell by body language she was absolutely mad.
Basically, we had an optional (keyword: optional) Secret Santa this year. You were, under no circumstances, required to participate if you did not think you could afford to do so/be able to do so due to whatever circumstances. We signed up for this all the way back at our Thanksgiving luncheon (which was a week before Thanksgiving). So, if you chose to participate, you had over a month to get your shit together.
Come week after New Year's, we get a company email saying that there was a person who didn't receive a gift from their Secret Santa, so of course we went on a hunt to find out who didn't participate.

Turns out, it was someone in our department. He didn't get his SS anything because he 'forgot'.



You don't forget to give someone a gift when you receive a goddamn Secret Santa gift, we mention it at the Christmas luncheon (which was technically the deadline, but he very well could've gotten something late the week after), and frequently talked about what we were going to get our SS or how we were going to sneak a gift to another department without being caught.

And I understand her frustration. Especially since after being called out for not participating, he still didn't get his SS person anything. Like, that's tacky. We (as a department, since we're only 5 people) asked if he knew where the list was of things his SS person liked so we (as a department, minus him) could get her a belated gift… and he has no idea where it is. Like, there wasn't even a minimum price for a gift. Hell, what I received from my SS was from Dollar General and cost less than $10.

I guess I'm also personally salty because we all talked about getting each other gifts for Christmas as a department… which everyone did, except for him. Not even just a little Christmas card with some candy or something. Like, at least try a little bit. You got a damn Christmas bonus. Keep $100 to the side to take care of shit like this.


I know all of this is petty, but it grinds my gears when people don't follow through or do the bare minimum.

Hired someone new, pay her more than me, give her more hours than me etc despite me having the same qualifications and skill level as her.

Gonna give this a shot here since id normally post this to some shithole like 4chan but I could use different viewpoints

I swiped left on this girl on tinder because I met her once, we have a mutual friend who told me of the promiscous things they both did and I wont lie it grossed me out. I feel so ashamed for being like this, I feel bad for swiping left on her because I am very certain she swiped right on me (she appeared often in my queue, a sign that they swiped right on you if they keep reappearing)

Idk is it wrong to be like this. I mean I heard the stories of pointless sex and I got so grossed out like I couldnt stomach the idea of dating someone that lets "anyone" stick their dick in them, or is eager to at least when they get drunk. Meanwhole idgaf if a guy is promiscuous, I see the double standard and it hurts because I am a very logical and fair person and I feel ashamed for not liking her for this reason. I feel like other than this wed get along. But the thought of other guys using her, esp ones I think are ugly (the mutual friend showed me pictures, these dudes remind me of soundcloud rappers that havent gotten all the tattoos in yet) it just grosses me out so much.

I feel the same way, but for me this applies to guys too. Maybe it's different. Why do you feel bad exactly? If you don't prefer to date her, you're not obligated to. You don't have to feel ashamed of your preferences.

I mean, if you really want to understand why you have this bias you can't really think of it logically to come to a full understanding. Emotions aren't logical. You have to "speak its language" to a cetain extent to examine why you feel that way and come to the root of the issue.
If I can put in my 2 cents, like lots of other guys you come across kind of self-absorbed, and seem to classify women only by their relation to you. You seem to think of her only as a potential partner, and not as her own person. You might come to a different conclusion.
Though like the other anon said, you're not obligated to date anyone with a promiscuous past.

I don’t know where you live, but I’m in Sweden. When my PTSD, paranoia and fuckall started getting the worst of me I set up an appointment with my district doc and after one meeting I was prescribed with meds (anti depressants). It was a bit too easy imo, but it got me through the worst anxiety waves. After 2 years I stopped with the meds and while I still have those bad days they are few and far between.

Wish I tried therapy, but the waiting lines are really fucking long unless you go to an private one. Best you can do is keep yourself occupied, work, hobbies, researching, friends etc. it’s important to be objective and try to have wide perspective. Take baby steps on bettering yourself,don’t think you’ll do everything at once.

I don't lurk this site that much so im not sure if male posting on /ot/ is banable or not but I just want a woman's perspective if possible. To put it shortly, I was in a three year relationship with my first girlfriend and the person I lost my virginity to. She committed suicide about a year and a half ago. I've been pretty apathetic towards females since then, but I've been really lonely lately and its all slowly driving me insane. I've been thinking about putting myself out there again. The problem is that I'm still in love with my deceased girlfriend and I'm scared of being hurt emotionally again. Is it worth even trying to date with this much baggage? Would another girl even understand, let alone put up with this shit? I've been in therapy for a year and it hasn't really helped so I was wondering if maybe seeing someone new might help me move on. I don't even know if I really want a new girlfriend, I just want to feel normal again. Am I scummy for thinking this way?

How do you move on from someone who's ignoring you? I really like this person but realistically it's more of an obsessive infatuation and being ghosted like this is making it worse. I don't know how to let go. Well, actually I have a good idea of what to do but none of it appeals to me. I was using this person as a form of inspiration and escapism from the bigger issues in my life. I knew it was inevitably going to fuck up but I let myself get caught up in the fantasy anyways. Now I'm paying the price.

I didn't mean apathetic in a "I don't care about what women think or feel or what happens to them" sense.

Thank you, that is good to know. Despite my guilt, I would like to date again but I know I'll always miss my first love and always love her.

I wouldn't say I'm actively suicidal, but frankly my life is cheap, worthless, boring, repetitive, and clearly I will never dig myself out of debt. Nobody truly values me, enough to support/help me, and people who claim to be close to me just show how little they think of me on the daily. I don't see a future. I just see a cyclic existence where I emotionally suffer and never really thrive.

Let's just say if I ever suffered a disease/ accident, like a car crash, I wouldn't exactly resist death.

I never fully confessed the true extent of my feelings towards him. I tried my best to hide that and I gave him a lot of space but I did tell him that I liked him. It's possible he's trying to save hurting my feelings because he doesn't want anything serious. Atleast with me. But I don't know about me hurting him. That's something I haven't really considered… but I don't know. It's hard to tell when we're not talking. It drives me mad with possibilities and leaves me restless at night. Everything between us is so unresolved. I'll try to relax and focus on myself because I think you are right about him wanting to see me stable. I won't count on him coming back but no matter how much I try there's always some residual hope there that ends up leaving me feeling disappointed and crushed.

Awful trauma all through my childhood/teen age years has warped my brain. I can’t comprehend love, nor am I usually even present. I’m constantly dissociated, as though it were a natural state.

So many people abused me so badly that I became a rag doll so all I know is that cycle of self hatred, depression, dissociation and the inability to comprehend time.

My boyfriend admitted(with the help of a bit if drugs) that when he broke up with me half a year ago, it wasn't because he didn't love me. No, it was because he felt like he wasn't good enough for me and that he ruined my life. He even told me that he tried to kill himself after breaking up because he felt like he just caused me pain and he wasn't strong enough to keep himself away from me.

Somehow, it feels worse knowing the truth, because now I feel like I can't be bothered anymore about the breakup. Like I am not allowed to be resentful and hurt because of it. I slightly wish he hadn't told me the truth before I could heal a bit more, because now I feel like I have to put it behind me.

I fucking hate my life.
Yeah, I know it could be worse. But everyone else my age in this country has freedom. I don't have any.
I'm not allowed to leave the house alone. I'm not allowed to wear what I want. I'm not allowed to wear too much makeup or what I'd like to put on my face. I'm not allowed to talk to people. It's fucking miserable. The only freedom I have is the internet.
After my brother passed away my parents locked down on me out of fear that I'll die too but have made it more and more extreme control. I feel like Rapunzel, but there is no prince coming to save me. It's a horrible fucking life. I'm stuck in my room all the time and am so bored. I have no friends. I have nothing, no matter what I do. I can't even drive to run away because of my brother and my crippling PTSD. I have a boyfriend online but we've only met once very sneakily at a public place when my parents weren't in the same vicinity as me. I love him to bits and pieces and I wish he could be my prince who will come save me. My parents would never allow it, though.
I'm not a child. I'm 18. If I were younger, I guess it'd be more understandable. But I'm legally an adult and should be able to do what I want. I can't.
I'm trapped and I can't escape. I'm getting to my breaking point. I love my parents yet I hate them for doing this to me. It's borderline abuse to control me this way. I want to kill myself but I have no access to anything to kill myself with.

Anon, I know exactly what that feels like because I went through the same and I'm really sorry you're going through this. I had a feeling other anons would be cruel and judge a situation they don't understand and I wish I responded earlier.

Firstly, I don't know what kind of people your parents are but would it help to sit them down and talk to them about how you're feeling? If they knew you're depressed spending all your time indoors, would they give you a bit more freedom? Even if just being able to go to the cinema or shopping? I'm guessing not because they police what you wear but it's worth a try.

If that doesn't work, would they allow you to get a part time job? Even if they required dropping you to and from the workplace, getting to spend some time outside of the house and interact with others could really help you mentally and you'd have some money saved up after a while to move out. It would really give you some independence to have your own income and finally do something for yourself.

Maybe telling you how I overcame this could help. In my case, my parents saw me as a child even after I turned 18. They thought heavily controlling me and emotionally manipulating me (I think maybe the same is going on with you, they're using your brother's death to control you) was "protecting" me. Something that helped show them that I wasn't a baby was getting a boyfriend as a teenager. It was really scary introducing him to them and even though they had mixed feelings, they knew they couldn't keep me from him. I started spending more time outside of the house then because he'd bring me on dates or I'd spend the weekend at his house (my parents always dropped me everywhere but it was a little baby step for my freedom).

Then I transferred to a school in the city and I had to take the bus to get there. I got the bus with a group of new schoolmates initially so my parents were okay with it but later on, I got the bus myself and it was a huge step for me. Sometimes I'd go for a coffee after school and take the bus home whenever I felt like it and that felt great. I'd call them and say "hey I'm going to be half an hour late this evening, is that okay?" and there was nothing they could do because I was already out. I started meeting my boyfriend in the city at the weekend too and my parents were okay with that because I always had my phone with me and he was there to protect me (after they had gotten to know him a bit more, obvs) and I was good at getting the bus home at a reasonable time so they had no real reason to complain!

Then I got a part time job in the city which gives you a lot of independence because you have your own little income. I'm still living with my parents but I'm saving money in order to move out (I know a lot of anons here are American and Americans can't comprehend not being able to afford being able to move out at like 16, I'm sorry but that's not how the rest of the world works culturally or economically, also I know that it's NOT that easy when you have controlling parents). My boyfriend has a job too and he's going to get an apartment soon and I'm so excited to move out! I've gotten to the point now where one day I'm just going to say "Hey, my bf got an apartment so I'm moving out with him" and if they accept it, great but if they don't like it, they don't have to be a part of my life and I don't care!

I spoke to a counselor about my problems and she told me that my family act abnormally. She told me to keep taking baby steps for myself because it's important for our happiness and development as people, that we're doing nothing wrong. I'd say she'd tell you the same thing. She told me to do little things like get a piercing I want or slowly wear a little more makeup or dye my hair if I want. I did get a piercing my parents begged me not to when I was out with my boyfriend once and even though my parents were initially very verbally abusive towards me and tried to manipulate me by saying my grandmother wouldn't like it or I wouldn't get a job now or that next thing I'd do is get a tattoo and join a gang, I really liked it and after the initial fight, it was all over (btw it wasn't even anything wild, it was just a lobe piercing lol). Now I really love it and I don't regret getting it. I think we fear taking those steps but once they're over, they're over. You need to challenge your parents, it's the only way. Once you've done something really small that's rebellious and you've gotten past the fighting, you'll realise that it's worth it.

Make a list of all the things you want to do this year. Start with the smallest thing and keep working up to what you ultimately want. Keep pushing them little by little. Reassure them that you're going to be okay by showing them. People like you and me have a much more difficult start in life but I just know it's going to make you a much more confident and strong person in the end. I was suicidal at your age too but four years later and I've got a boyfriend and I'm about to get a great job and I spend every night looking for apartments for us and planning our future together.

I'm marrying the love of my life and I'm beyond stoked because I'm so smitten with him. The wedding is in a few months now and we originally planned on eloping and getting on a plane until we found out we need 2 witnesses, being my grandparents, and the plane isn't for a few hours so we decided to have lunch with my family since his are all shit heads and he has no interest in having them there. We've gone from eloping and going on holidays for a week to getting married, having people at the civil ceremony, photographs, a lunch and cake and then a flight and I am really feeling the crunch for time and money and my bank won't give me a loan, he has bad credit and I haven't joined a credit union so if I join one now I don't know if they'll give me a loan and my job is stressful too.

Literally 3 people responded, telling her she should leave if she can. Nothing rude about it, but your post comes off as really rude.

Then you're doing that thing where you clap back but in a passive aggressively ~nice~ way. Not a good look.

Yeah because I've seen similar posted before and the responses are usually just "move out, lazy" and I wanted to offer a little more than that because it didn't help me in my situation. I felt >>221615 was a cruel response. I guess we can agree to disagree on that, that's okay.

But I'm really not sure what I said which warrants being called an "arrogant asshole" or a "jerk" or "literally retarded" when I was just responding in a non-aggressive way to an anon who called me a "fucking idiot". How is my post rude and those aren't?

hey anon, i lived with my mum up until i was 19 and she very controlling. i wasn't ever allowed to go to concerts or parties at the weekend with boys even tho i had a part time job and was at uni. a boy i was trying to date literally sent a taxi to my house once to take me up to his (i was 19) and she screamed at the taxi driver and the guy stopped talking to me because i was too difficult to get to know.

my mum was also verbally and physically abusive to me. i still have a lot of social issues to this day, but long story short, i dropped out of uni without telling anyone and got a decent job. i had to still come home at reasonable hours or i'd pay for it later, but with the income i saved up for a deposit, used annual leave to visit apartments and put a deposit down. the night before i was moving i sat her down and told her i was leaving and everything was arranged

she cried and hugged me and told me she loved me. we have a better relationship now and i think she prefers me out of the house. i don't know what her issues were but you need independence.

jesus christ anon, chill out. being suicidal is not a unique experience. i've actually had a family member kill himself and would never casually bring it up as a defence mechanism. i'm on anti depressants and have had those days were i think about ending it all but you just have to wise up.

anything is better than nothing. fuck off

You're misreading the argument. Both anons mentioned being suicidal. The aggressive anon was making fun of a suicidal person seeing getting the bus as an achievement which is really fucking low because it's probably a big deal to some people.

also being afraid to get a bus doesn't seem to imply being suicidal rather than being socially awkward. which i can understand because i had an abusive mother that would isolate me while my brother has been getting arrested since he was 14 and he's 3 years older than me. i actually got out of the house years before him because he was the golden boy and could do no wrong even with a criminal record.

best thing for anyone with overbearing parents is to get as much independence as you can within your confines. a job is the best bet. i got a 9-5 desk job in the city and was able to meet people for dinner before heading home and could have lunch in the city on my break. i got to interact with people from all walks of life and it made me even more eager to get out there in the real world.

jobs = money = freedom.

I was trying to show the anon the little steps she can take that will be easy for her and for her parents to accept, I wasn't trying to blog. Suddenly moving out isn't easy, especially if she doesn't have an income and probably won't go down well with her parents right now. She needs to build up to that.

Idk why you're taking this so personally since it was only for her. She admitted that she's really isolated and this is probably one of the only places she trusts to ask for help and I reached out to her with a personal story. She's in a really fragile state, so I don't think name-calling or saying people who are suicidal "aren't special" isn't really helping.

tbh I just feel really bad for you at this stage if you can't see that I was really concerned about that anon and wanted to help her. It's sad that you felt the need to hurl abuse at me because you took something in my post way too personally. I wish you a happier life.

what worked for you won't work for everyone. your situations are very drastically different, mostly because your parents weren't grieving.

she needs to sit her parents down and tell them what they are doing. maybe help them come to terms with their grief so they will free her. that's why they are doing this. it's nothing to do with them being over protective innately, they are grieving still and they are projecting fears onto her irrationally. they are using her life to try to make up for mistakes that happened with her brother. your situation sounds totally different and is standard of helicopter parents.

more than one person feels this way. also i now agree with >>221632 and >>221634. if you're so much better than me and others abusing you, why don't you be the bigger person and step away. it's obviously affecting you that much, since you keep replying and acting like you're being abused. kek.

Nta, but your concern seems insincere, especially now since you are so focused on how concerned you were and how you are being attacked and bullied. Plus you started off sounding super conceited and disregarding what others said, acting like we told her to off herseslf or some shit.

People came for you because your "advice" is mostly patting yourself on the back, pretending you're so much nicer than everyone else when only one person left a snarky response and assuming your situation is exactly like OP's when it's clearly not. Dealing with overprotective parents is a lot different than dealing with what's basically a family trauma that's affecting OP.

i'm really proud of myself for once

a little less than a year ago my crazy neighbor forced his way into my house, beat me nearly to death, then raped me. didn't even know the guy. it messed me up in the head pretty badly (literally, i think i'm slightly dumber now due to head injuries/being choked out), but i still went to my highschool graduation within the month even though it was difficult. i gave a speech because i was top of the class. and then i started college full-time even though it was really difficult. and now i'm working my first job, even though it's actively really really difficult. something awful happened, and even though it's deeply affected my psyche i haven't slowed down. i have PTSD of course, and lots of the shitty symptoms that come with it (chronic pain, reliving the moment at inopportune times, etc), but i'm swallowing my tears and trucking on.

i think the people who know me assume that it's easy for me to achieve normal things because i don't complain about it, but everything is difficult and everything hurts. i'm still doing it though. even if nobody else is proud, i am.

I'm kinda scared that 2018 is going to fly by just like last year where I did nothing but cry and be depressed because I keep myself in painful situations .

The main thing is I've barely spoken to my ldr boyfriend for the past year. More like, he's just ignored me. It made 2017 awful for me. He missed all the holidays, our anniversary, and even my birthday… There wasn't even a fight or anything to cause it. It just went from us being happy after I visited him and him about to leave for Navy training to his date being pushed waaaay back and him ignoring all my texts for weeks to months at a time. I don't have irl friends from being a neet at the time and only a small amount of online friends so I was extremely lonely. His excuse whenever we did talk was 'i'm busy'. He's never made any obvious implication to say we're broken up, still said he loved me every now and then… But I've been nothing but a bundle of bad emotions from him treating me this way. When I realized 2017 was over and all I did was spend it crying next to my phone hoping that all of a sudden things would be normal and we'd talk everyday like we used to, I hated myself even more.

The last I heard from him was in December when I told him my 20th birthday was coming up, to which he said he was leaving for his training like the 18th. I asked if we could spend time together but all I got was a 'we will try' and that's the last I've heard. I'm pretty sure he left without even telling me goodbye.

God I hate myself for being so committed to him when he hasn't treated me like he cares for A YEAR. I honestly want nothing more than for this to work out since he's really attractive and treated me like a princess. I want to have a home together and make him happy since he really inspired me to come out of my shell since he's extremely extroverted. I even gave him my virginity, which was important to me and I wanted my first to be with someone special. I know i'm an idiot for still loving him after how hurt I've been but I can't make myself stop for whatever reason.

At the very least I'm trying to use this year to better myself and pay more attention to exercise, healthy dieting, and being active on social media to distract me but I'm afraid my emotions are going to sneak back up on me and ruin it all. I know I can be better than what I've been like.

I hate that I'm even upset about this, but last weekend I received my first customer complaint from my shitty retail job. It didn't have anything to do with me personally (I don't think), so I shouldn't be taking it personally. Part of my job involves working with very small babies, and I'm not good at that at all. I just don't know what to do and I'm afraid I'm going to fuck
