I feel so fucking retarded lol. recently in my attempts to escape my shitty life and mental health and just ignore all my problems, I’ve developed some kind of addiction to app games? And I can’t stop making micro transactions in them and ignoring real life work stuff to play these games? And I can feel myself wasting both time and money but I can’t stop lol, last night I spent about $100 in one sitting and I don’t have the money to be doing this at all….why am I so stupid and continue allowing myself to do this when I know it’s bad

Delete them anon!!! Seriously, they're not worth it, esp if you don't have the money rn.

I dated someone who spent $500+ on candy crush & it spiraled way out of control

I know what you mean anon, but none of it is real you know? It's the kind of thing you just have to cut off. If it's tied to your acc maybe you'll be able to redownload it in a few years when you're more financially stable.

or, the next time you feel the urge to spend $2 or $5 or however much on your game, think about what you could use that money for - towards rent, internet, maybe a snack, something tangible.

i know addiction like this is hard, but i believe in you.

have you also considered trying to find the cracked version of the game, so you can just play normally instead of spending money? if it's an otome for example, there's lots of those online iirc. Just be careful not to download anything shady. what kind of games are they?

So, my ex had made that acc to circumvent the block and tried to sneak into my dms for the second time. It was called something with Jon Snow (barf) and he asked me how it was going and sent cutesy emojis….. (barf)

I removed him twice from my followers, then blocked him again and privated my acc again.

Since he has a past of stalking exes (had a stalking app on an ex's phone, was controlling, jealous and obsessive), I felt uncomfortable especially since he knows my address.

I realised since he is a manipulative spineless little bitch and a brainlet with brainrot, I just need to come off strong to nip his obsession in the butt. He needs to know that I detest him and that I will fight tooth and nail for my freedom if he gets ideas about stalking me. Since he is a weak little bitch and I'm way tougher and smarter, this is an easy job. When he provoked me into breaking up, I insulted him like three times and he was seriously upset LOL

So, I sent him a text message tonight (he has no money for his phone, so he couldn't respond if he tried).

It went like this:

Hi,
I don't wanna talk to you. I'd have unblocked you if I did. Don't try to circumvent the block. I don't wanna talk to you today or tomorrow or in a year or in ten years. I wanna die someday as peaceful as possible without having talked to you again. If you try to contact me and circumvent the block again until X date I will spill on our drug test fraud (I'm a retarded bitch and helped him cheat a drug test at the hospital). I only found your number in the first place because it shows up in my blocked contacts.
Don't try to contact me again.
No hard feelings.

Thank you for replying to me and helping me to not feel like such a loser :(

They’re pretty standard games like animal crossing pocket camp, klondike, and EverMerge. I usually allow myself to spend monthly on pocket camp (around $30 usually, but I’ve binged and spent more than that if there were in game items I wanted that month, bc theres exclusive limited time gachas and furniture and stuff), I don’t spend any money on evermerge and it’s the game I can control myself with most, but the Klondike game is becoming a huge issue. I’ve downloaded it recently and it’s one of those games that’s super slow to progress through without spending money on “energy” and the wait time to craft things makes it hard for me to be satisfied with the amount of progress I can make in a sitting. That’s the one I spent so much on last night, and last nights purchases weren’t even my only ones since getting the app :( theres also a word game that allows you to renovate houses and stuff, and I’ve spent a lot on that just to get furniture that I like. All of this isn’t real or necessary but since it helps my anxiety and allows me to escape, I keep doing it

You're not a loser at all! The fact that you even posted about your problem here means that there's at least some part of you that's brave enough to acknowledge your problem and want to change. So that's the first step. But you have to actively work on the issue. Are you in therapy for your anxiety? (The games are a crutch and provide instant gratification, but I'm sure you understand that. They won't help the root of the issue.)

Try baby steps.

1. Delete the game that's your biggest money sink. Sounds like it's that Klondike game or that furniture game.

2. If you really think you can't let go of the games right now, research cracked apks online but be mindful.

3. Start a budget spreadsheet if you haven't. You have to be brutally honest with this. Every time you spend money on a game, add to the spreadsheet and check at the end of week/month. When you have real numbers in front of you, it can help you stop spending as much. But you have to make sure you log every expense, even if it's only 99c or what have you.

Social anxiety is ruining my life. I’m a functioning member of society and actually work in a field that relies heavily on socializing and I’m pretty good when I have a specific topic I need to discuss. However in just normal every day conversation I leave every interaction feeling soooo bad at myself. Even as I’m speaking I sometimes can feel myself bombing it. I’m tired of getting a call from a friend and feeling like I’m going to puke . I’ve been called weird for being quiet , I’ve been called weird for opening up. I don’t know what to do anymore.

I did a hate crime last night apparently and woke up to this. No matter that it was on a post calling for violence towards women, amongst comments calling all women sluts and whores, saying women need to learn to cook or they're failures as women.

I know I'd heard of this happening on Facebook, and I guess i shouldn't be surprised since insta is owned by them. It's just fucking pathetic. Imagine if men had to take the abuse women did daily? I'm so sick of men I don't want to interact with them at all anymore.

You literally cant say anything to men without them getting emotional. If you bring up the high crime statistics they just chimp out. They won't even recognize men have a problem as a whole, they're sure as fuck not going to band together and start fixing it.

And the worst thing is I keep seeing dumb ass comments on other sites I visit saying shit like this is a white man's problem which is just as fucking bad. Like black/asian/latino women aren't getting the same treatment from men in their communities. There was a post a few days ago saying misogny and sexism DIDN'T EXIST until white men introduced it to native Americans/aboriginals in Australia.They said before white people these communities worshipped women lmao. So it's not like we can even tackle it from a liberal stand point.

Fuck me. I just don't care anymore. They are useless.

Oh anon I know that feel so well. I was a whale on a game a few years ago. Outrageous amounts of money that make me cringe and feel sick just thinking about it now. Be better then me, stop spending on them.
The only reason I stopped was because the app went under and was deleted. I lost everything I spent a lot to acquire in seconds! I have absolutely nothing to show for it.

My best suggestion is to delete the games. If it’s so easy to lose everything by that simple act alone it’s going to happen regardless. A lot of anons have good advice for taking baby steps. But remember: non of its real, the second they delete the app off the store, the second you can’t update your phone high enough or something technical goes wrong, everything’s gone anyway.

Another idea might be to invest in an actual game system. There are games with the same kind of vibe that don’t require further purchases once you have the game. Animal Crossing New horizons comes to mind. Save for a switch system or purchase older sim games for your computer if you have one.

Cracked game apps are also an option. I wish I could point you to a community for such a thing but most of the games with in app purchases I play these days don’t really require the purchases to complete the game, they’re just for aesthetics.

In the meantime maybe you need to set a hard limit? Can you make privacy cards? I believe they allow you to set a limit of what can come out in a certain time frame. Also print off your bank statements and confront yourself with how much you’ve spent. Was it worth it? Could that money have been used for something else you needed or heck, something else you really wanted?

Good luck anon.

After stressing about it for a while,I managed to tell my father I'm going on vacation on my own.Considering his unpredictable temper,this was an extremely difficult thing to do,yet his response was pretty calm compared to what I expected which annoys me because I never know what to fucking expect

The reason I go on vacation alone is due to the fact I'm tired of everyone around me and I truly need some piece of mind to thing about my life clearly.My father doesn't realise how negatively he affects my family,I and even himself with his behaviour. He keeps complaining about getting sick and dying, yet I'm the one who has ended up in the hospital due to physically manifested anxiety.I have tried explaining it to him,but he is very difficult to talk to and twists the conversations or gives up on them and leaves so there's no rational way to solve family problems.

This travel is a big step for me as I was even afraid to use busses in the past,but lately I had been so tired of this situation feeling sick again that I can't handle more "family" time anymore.I had been feeling continiously ill,tired,stressed,had no appetite,suicidal and all of that nice shit and my father keeps having no idea it's mostly due to him.He can't accept it.He keeps saying he wants me to become independent,but doesn't want me to let me go and keep doing things for him.I'm pretty fucking sure he will lowkey start trash talking about me/my decision,since it affects our work life too.

Oh it would be so easy if he only used his ears and some compassion.But he can't so I gotta look like a shithead doing stunts like this

I’m native Latina and it’s been prevalent in history that the men “owned” us so to speak, and especially in modern history and Latino culture, the men are way more sexist than white men can ever dream. Since I’m indigenous Latina and not indigenous North American, I can’t say how modern history treats its women but I don’t hear very good things. My best friend is also a black girl and she hates black men because of how they treat black women, and any time on black twitter you will see that many black women share this sentiment. Asian culture may have some of the worst sexism and gender disparity, rivaling laities culture, and I think it has something to do with both cultures being rooted in traditional virtues. I have no idea why the wokies only speak out against white men when it’s not just white men, it’s all men. They talk about how good white women have it compared to men of color, when men of color are as violent and horrible toward women as white men are, ive actually experienced better treatment from white men than any man of color that I’ve dated. Not marginally better, because they’re still men, but American culture kind of cultivated a sentiment in white men where they know they can’t be extremely vocal about how much they hate women anymore. Men of color will say they own their women and want to keep them and, when criticized for it, say it’s their culture and it’s racist to speak out against tradition. It’s all a load of shit.

I was thinking about some baby steps in that I shouldn’t play games while on adderall because I will hyper focus on them and try to sink hours into playing them, and when I can’t progress…..spending money lol, and then giving myself a monthly allowance to start out with before lessening they amount until I wean off. Unless it’s better just to do it cold turkey?

The last part about budgeting is so useful, I’ve been meaning to track all my budget things. I haven’t been going without paying my share of rent and credit building, but other than that I don’t spend a lot of my money. I’m a chronic saver, but because of the corona virus, I’ve had to dig way into my savings without recovering so I really can’t afford the addiction anymore, especially if it gets any worse. Last night was the worst night so far and I never thought I would spend that much in one sitting. Usually I can justify the transactions because they’re small amounts, like $5 or $10 daily or weekly, or the $30 for pocket camp. But uncontrollably binging and spending $100 just like that was a new low….

I also started playing pocket camp because I couldn’t afford the switch, but I’ve realized I’ve now probably spent enough on that game for two or more switches, it’s embarrassing and regretful to think about…..

I have a playstation with games but after final fantasy 7 remake, I’ve had no desire for “real” gaming, because video games can be stressful and these app games are so easy and mindless.

Hearing stories about people becoming addicted to micro transaction spending though is so scary, I’m going to try to not become like that. I need to stop spending all my time and savings on these games and grow up a little to at least accomplish some work! Thank you guys for talking to me and sharing your advice and encouragement, I’m going to try to kick this!

I've had symptoms of being prediabetic since I was about 12 (always thirsty and hungry, lethargic, always need to pee, skin wounds heal slowly, etc) and I found out yesterday from an oral glucose tolerance test that I'm just over the border of being prediabetic. im 20.

how did my grandma decide to "celebrate" this? she brought me a whole ass giant bag full of premade sugary pastries from the grocery store, and she got offended when i said i wouldnt eat them. i know she was trying to be nice and im aware that im quite bitchy and spoiled, but it just really fucks me off that im on the way to being a type 2 diabetic if i dont change my habits and she decides to "celebrate" this by trying to get me to eat the shit that got me into this in the first place.

i know im responsible for my health since im an adult, and by this point its mostly my fault for not looking after my health properly, but when i was a kid my grandma and some of my other older family members used to do shit like sneak me mountains of sweets and pastries when my parents werent looking and i even had an aunty who used to feed me sugar with a table spoon pretty much every day for some reason. and like i said, ive had the symptoms since i was about 12, and yet shes still not alarmed and trying to get me to eat mountains upon mountains of sweets.

Thank you for your input. You're right, it's an issue across all men, it doesn't matter the culture. The culture is usually formed around misogyny in part, though, because every culture has misogny engrained into it to an extent.

I've heard from a lot of asian/black women that men can violent with them for dating white men because they think they're entitled to women from their own community. There's an entire subreddit run by asian men for the sole purpose of shitting over asian women dating white men and calling them traitors.

was ana chan for three years. currently on the early stages of obesity. i think i might have a thyroid problem because ive literally been gaining like 5 kg in a month… no joke… I dont know whats happening. I track my calories. I do cardio. Things i used to do while ana chaning but now im trying to do them for health reasons. and i suck at it. i know it must be that im undercounting or something. but it still sucks. cause i keep trying and trying and failing. just keep gaining and gaining like crazy. i remember when i was skinny and pretty and my ex would literally brag about dating me on social media. currently so fat, and current partner goes "well, you have a gorgeous face yknow. some people are ugly and no matter how much they lose theyll still be ugly. your face is pretty so your weight doesnt matter". they promise they dont mind but i fucking mind. im losing my mind. i dont want to go back to my ana chan ways but doing this the "healthy way" is not working cause im clearly undercounting or something cause im so damn stupid.

theyre going to put me on lithium too soon so… more weight gain probably. im losing my mind… im so unhappy… i keep having nightmares and so much stress from this. none of my clothes fit. ive never felt so ugly in my entire life. and its all my fault. and it fucking hurt anons, thats the issue, that i know its me, and it hurts

i just see old pics of myself, healthy weight, anachan, overweight, and it all seems fine compared to know and i cry. but, even though i feel like im eating less and exercising more, weeks go by and nope… not trying hard enough…

My boyfriend's friend came over a couple nights ago and I hung out in the kitchen playing a video game/perusing the web while they hung out and drank in another room. He would come to the kitchen periodically to get a beer from the fridge and sometimes asked what I was doing. At one point he came in and inquired while I was practicing spanish by watching netflix and writing down new words and phrases, at which point he made some remarks that were just like 'spanish is a waste of time..jk!' and took the notebook i was writing on and looked at it without asking or anything. Later on I was just looking at reddit and he asked once again what I was doing and I said 'why do you keep asking? you're so nosy..' in a friendly tone even though I was finding him a bit too much at this point, then he pressed alt+tab on the laptop to see all the tabs I had open. In hindsight I regret not making myself known this point and telling him that I didn't appreciate what he did. Later on he randomly asked me to translate some spanish caption he came across on his instagram and I kinda had to make an educated guess then he said 'oh…your spanish sucks!! haha jk'. When he left my bf even remarked that he was glad because he was finding him annoying as well but said he only was like that because he was really drunk.

I've only met this person three times, each time he would just come over to drink. Last time he visited I told my bf that I didn't really vibe with him and the way he joked around with me, to which he said he saw my point and said that since they joke around with each other like that he probably assumes it's ok to be the same way with me which is not correct, and that they have been friends since their teens and that his friend also has social anxiety. Even though he remarked that he found him annoying this time, he didn't react so much when I told him about my encounter with him. This was two days ago and I'm still triggered that I didn't just tell him to mind his business and not touch my shit

If you’re in your early 20s thats what was happening to me. You can overcome it with medication, diet and exercise! You’ll be ok if that’s what it is, sometimes our bodies just need a kick in the ass and medical intervention. If there are known thyroid issues in your family I highly recommend checking your thyroid (all numbers including T4) every year until they take you seriously. It took me 10yrs to find a doctor who actually checked the right numbers and surprise it was really bad.

This may not be what’s happening to you but if you know what you’re eating and you are exercising there is clearly something else going on. Look into hashimotos and thyroid issues and see what people recommend getting checked because I remember being 20 and just ballooning and being unable to stay awake. It was terrible! Good luck and hang in there, try not to punish yourself about something that sounds likely to be out of your control.

I guess I just can't play the social media game. I'm an artist and since I lost my irl job due to covid, I've been thinking about how I really wish i could take online commission work. Over the years I've tried to open social media accounts for my art and have only been met with failure. The only account I was able to break 20 followers (yes, twenty) was an instagram account that got permanently shadowbanned for reasons I was never able to figure out. I guess maybe I was using too many repetitive hashtags? My facebook also got locked for being a suspected bot and won't let me in unless i upload a state ID (lolno)
I opened a new instagram a few weeks ago and have been unable to get a single like on any post. It depresses me so much because I try so hard and I see so many people who are able to make livings doing this with less skills than me. What in the god damn am i missing?

I'm not trying to humblebrag, but I know that I'm a pretty decent artist, so the quality can't be the issue. pic attached is just an unfinished underpainting I did like a year ago that fits the mood. Am I being delusional about my skills? I feel like im going insane I'm honestly so close to kms

You're very good but social media is exactly that - social. Tagging your art is good to get it out there, but you also have to go that extra mile and interact with audiences. the art tags on insta move quickly, refreshing them after ten seconds will give you a whole new feed to scroll through. If you want to stand out, you have to do more.

IRL, you can be an absolutely amazing artist but it's still networking and business savvy that gets you in galleries and gets you money, despite what people may tell you about it being all about the art and creativity.

Your new instagram is going to work for you. Use about six tags on each post - half general and popular like #art and half sorta specific like #digitalartist. Change up the tags you use on each post. Like and follow other artists, especially smaller ones that will reciprocate support. Comment on posts, react to stories and DM people sincere messages about mutual interests and genuine admiration. Instagram doesn't order posts chronologically, it goes by interaction. You have to interact to stay in a feed. Change up the time of day you post to find out which days/times offer the biggest audience with the smallest competition. Post regularly, at least once a week. Caption your pictures something that shows you're talented and professional - for example, don't post anything like "I don't like this piece but here you go" as some artist do. Instead caption it with something like "learned so much from this piece".

Selling art also requires you to sell yourself. There's a reason great products still have marketing departments.

Earlier I foolishly locked myself out of my apartment, so I had to pay $120 for someone to pick it. However, the more upsetting part was that it only took him like 60 seconds to pick my lock. I'm glad he got me back in but it also makes me wonder how safe my apartment is, even though I do have a deadbolt as well.

As >>583425 said you need to be social on social media so that people notice you. That means commenting on other people's posts, following them, etc. You might be able to get noticed on discord servers or reddit, depending on where your target audience is. I'm not exactly a social marketing guru but I know how other people got to 3k followers on IG in a year or 1k followers in a week.

I'm usually able to mask my depression and bad attitude pretty well it's getting harder to put on a happy or even neutral face.

no anon I fucking hate kids usually especially ones who make my job harder but this girl was genuinely just saying "look, mom, can I get this one?" while picking up an item from a cart of fulfilled online orders and I basically asked her to put it down but in a really harsh tone/wording that was completely unwarranted. I realize that in my first post I made it sound like she was stealing from another customers cart but we use different carts for online order fulfillment, and there was no signage or anything that said not to touch it, she thought it was just merchandise she could buy like anything else. if she had any situational awareness she would have realized it was obviously not for sale but it still didn't warrant my tone. she immediately said "oh sorry sorry" really quietly and put it down. I was really shy as a kid, I know how she felt, and I know the difference between "oop I got caught, time to play dumb" and an awkward kid feeling genuinely chastised and confused.

As the daughter of immigrants (like brown immigrants from a "third world shithole"), I can see why people get scared and turn into racists. Not saying it is okay but it is an easy rabbit hole to fall into.

The countries we come from are not the best places and that is why we fled them. There are so many reasons why disrupted communities have many issues and it is not as simple as painting us snowflakes who can do no harm as some liberals do. We need actual solutions but the next best thing isn't scapegoating us to hell and back.

I can't say whether or not you will get out of that pipeline, it's up to you. Most racists I have met are sheltered in a way, they don't have productive conversations nor do they really know anyone belonging to the people they hate/are scared of. If you don't want to be racist then do something about it. Learn about the issues minority groups face in your country. Learn about the issues they tell you immigrants are ruining and often times you will find it is way more complex than that.

I doubt that you don't have peers or coworkers who are minorities, actually talk to us instead of listening to some weird-ass 4chan scrotes who probably won't even look a black guy in the eye lmao. I don't mean tokenize your friends to justify why you're not racist but actually try and see the world they see it. It goes both ways, don't be friends with people who don't respect you.

I've had to fight my own prejudices, especially towards white people and men lol. It's not easy and it doesn't go away overnight but you will be a happier person as a result.

Thanks for the thought-out response. I'm somewhat naive and pretty open to ideas, which doesn't serve me when around harmful ideology.

Some of it definitely comes from me growing up sheltered and then having to fare alone in a scary society. We want a scapegoat. When crime has gone up severely you feel let down and frustrated, and want to blame the "responsible group" instead of the shitty leadership that sold the country out. Who can blame people for coming here?

For the past month or so though, she wouldn't come speak to me, and when I went to speak to her she would hardly look at me or respond. I asked her what the issue is, and she flat out said that she doesn't want to speak to me anymore, and she doesn't know why. It makes me feel very bad, and I told her as much, and she asked that I not mention it again.

I don't really have a right to feel bad, considering I didn't like her all too much in the first place, and I only feel bad because of the lack of validation. Still sucks though. Thanks for listening.

I'm starting to feel an identity crisis about being online, particularly imageboards after turning 26 last month. I never felt too old to be online and I assumed that people who used imageboards were aging up with me. I also had been going to college until recently, so I was constantly surrounded by people younger than me.


Now looking around, I noticed that the average age of people who used imageboards has been college-aged since forever. I feel like a lot of the people who used imageboards have stopped. For example, since this board started up six years ago in 2014, I would expect there to be a lot more people in their 30s browsing but it turns out everyone here is in their early 20s. I used to be younger than the average person browsing this board and already I'm older.

Now I wonder if I'm supposed to be doing something else other than spending my life online. I had a lot of plans, but coronavirus has forced me inside doing nothing all of the time.

Does everyone just turn into a normie when they hit their mid 20s to spend time with their gf/bf instead?

That was the case back when the world didn't offer you many other options, it was just the path everyone had to go through because everything else was seen as a perverted, sinful life style. The reason why there are so many 20somethings browsing imageboards and partaking in the online culture is that the technology is so new that it's mostly late millenials and everyone past them who are comfortable with using them, plus a lot of them also have a young userbase they don't have the patience for. Older nerds still prefer IRC, forums and imageboards other than the ones populated by zoomers who they have nothing in common with.

She's a giant Kpop/anime sperg with hardly an interest in anything else. She gets mad whenever someone refers to her as a girl. She tries so hard to appear as woke but won't do anything beyond posting shit online (like going to a prostest). We really don't have anything in common anymore.

Of course I don't believe in that mentality. But the numbers speak for themselves in terms of showing how people are actually choosing to spend their time.

Your explanation doesn't really make sense. 4chan started in 2004 and was definitely a millennial thing. I thought there would be plenty of people in their 30s who have stuck around, but nope, the average age is still people in their early 20s. Of course there are oldfags that have stuck around but a lot of them have left. I'm trying to figure out where they left to.

The only site that seems to have consistently a high average age is Something Awful, but it's a shithole to use if you're not down with trannies. Forums and IRC seem to be dead or not open to new users, so it's not as if I could go there.

>>583847
I guess what makes me unhappy right now is that it seemed really easy for other people to move on to another stage of their life, but I kinda feel stuck? Especially due to the coronavirus. Like what is so great about other people's lives they completely lost the need to shitpost? I guess it's fomo.

I also do use reddit a lot, though I don't post as much anymore (due to my main account being banned, kek). But now what bothers me is that there are so many teens using the site now that it's becoming worse to use, especially as I'm growing older. I can't tell if that's because a lot of the older users have left (to what, hacker news or ycombinator?) or if the site is growing in popularity.

And contrary to how I might be coming off, I have had a fairly active life that involved partying/traveling, but internet use was always an (excessive) part of it. Now that I've been stuck at home due to the coronavirus, I've been stressed and basically browsing online 24/7 at the expense of everything else. I thought this could be a good time to work on other stuff, I just feel really lost.

Another thing that makes me upset is that as I've been using this site for 6 years, I thought there would be plenty of people who would have stuck around for so long. It does make me upset that while I've been critical of this site, it turns out other people were way less attached and could move on easier than I ever would.

Another 29 here, this place is great to pass time at work. Also the anonymity here is amazing for a person with not a lot free time; on the forums where you have an account and identity, you have to always deal with cliques formed over the years and a newbie voice would often be ignored in interactions. Here I have far more chance to interact and receive advice or answer because we're all equal and I don't need to waste time socializing with specific group and proving myself first.

Watched a Will & Grace episode where Grace is telling about her sexual assault experience to her dad, then got hit with a deep buried memory of my elementary school teacher who would constantly slap girls butts, like we're talking 3rd graders. I remember carrying stacks of books downstairs with other girls and this ugly ass, racist ass rat looking motherfucker gROPED and slapped my classmates butts. He also had a tendency to be unbeliavably racist to a kid I knew so I went and complained about him to the principle like, multiple times, everytime I got shot down because at the time I was a mess. I can't believe I had forgotten about all this, and he did the slapping and groping in front of basically any number of students, I don't wanna imagine what the fuck he did behind closed doors. Wish I remembered his last name so I could, I don't know, throw cat shit to his windows or something.

So I picked up a fighting game a lot of my friends online are playing/good at and I am loving learning it and getting better. It's the first fighting game I've played and actually understand that to do concerning the buttons and mechanics.

BUT; Someone recently joined the group and while they can be nice, man they love shitting on me in the game to the point where I'm avoiding playing them. Because I still don't know all the mechanics not matchups and they're just saying how I'm bad at the game when I've only been playing a couple of weeks tops on top of being new to the whole thing. Like they're legit saying they're joking but it's like constant. Everyone else I play with, they don't hold back either but they at least let me know what I did wrong/could do better. So what I truly hate is, I don't learn shit when I play against that person and they act like I'm trash when yeah I am trash but I have a reasons to be, and to act like you're so much better for it is just grating.

My boyfriend thinks i should see a therapist but i'm afraid because what if nothing's wrong with me and it's all just me and my personality, then that means i'm irredeemable and also I would've wasted an appointment somebody else could've had who really needed it, thus making me an even shittier person, but not going to a therapist is going to make my boyfriend hate me, but in the end that is good because i should keep a far distance from everyone and i don't want him to think it's his fault when our relationship gets fucked up because of me

My bf suggested for months that I see a therapist and on his pushing I finally went and already I've learned a lot of coping tools.

Stop thinking of it as "wasting an appointment". I used to think that way too until I actually sat down and talked to a professional and realized there were things that were fucked up in my brain that they could help me with. Your bf sounds like he at least wants you to feel better. What have you got to lose by going to a therapist? You could approach the first appointment by explaining that you feel like you're irredeemable and then go into why you feel that way. It may be cathartic to actually verbally say it in front of a professional (at least it was for me)

Honestly Anon therapy is good. Just go see a therapist and talk to them. Just talking to one isn't going to hurt anything. I waited going to see mine for a similarish reason (didn't think I was bad off enough to see one, just thought that's how I was. On top of a bad previous experience with mental health professionals) But now I'm seeing someone and it's working out well. All it takes is finding a therapist that clicks with you and understands.

Also let me clarify why I didn't go to a therapist for like two years after I previously tried to get help. The previous time was a shitshow and the therapist told me it seemed like I wanted to be coddled after I told her some of the techniques she had me doing to manage my anxiety weren't really working.

My newest therapist is really kind and laughed and told me that my previous therapist was full of shit when I told her what happened during that time period. So legit, just gotta find someone you feel comfortable with. If you don't like the one you see, ask for a different person.

I can never shake the feeling that nobody actually likes me and it's really not good! even as a kid I always had the sense that my friends just hung out with me out of pity and it was all part of some joke that went too far. I'm always severely anxious in my relationships with others and whenever someone does something that could be interpreted as rude my thought process is literally this. "oh god did I do something wrong? what did I do? do they hate me? I messed up and now they hate me i'm the worst." I KNOW I'm just overreacting and they (probably) don't hate me and didn't mean to act that way but I can't help the way I think and it's really really upsetting. also I'm not even aware of the fact that I bottle my emotions up anymore, my friend called me annoying today as a joke and I almost burst into tears in front of her… God I feel like I'm such an emotionally draining person to be around

I convinced myself for the past 15 years that I don’t have social anxiety and that I’m just a wallflower and an introvert, but the truth is that I’m an introvert who also has social anxiety. I always thought that I couldn’t have SA because I don’t get a racing heart or the sweats or a stutter when speaking to people. I work in a social job, do great with presentations and interviews, and can fake my way a lot. With that being said. I can’t make or keep friends. When I’m on my way to meet friends I feel like I’m going to puke. After I meet friends and I’m driving home, I end up crying or feeling legit suicidal because all I can think is that they think I’m boring or that Im a loser compared to them. When I’m with people, a lot of the times my mind just goes completely blank. It’s like my brain stops producing any thought. That specific issue is what makes me certain that I have SA. I have a sense of humor and a personality but it never shows when I’m out with people. People have called me weird to my face for how quiet I get. The fact that socializing makes me anxious and the fact that I’m also an introvert who prefers to be alone is a horrible combination that caused me to isolate myself 80% of the time growing up. I only felt comfortable around certain friends but those friends have tons of their own friends now. Now that I’m no longer in denial, I don’t know what to do with this information. I feel like the damage is done. I can’t afford therapy. I literally think if it wasn’t for the fact that my parents would pay the price, I would have killed myself like a week ago.

I don't like admitting this but I have been having suicidal thoughts again after thinking I was pretty good. Shit with the world has been really getting to me and here I am trying to keep other's spirits up, but this past week or so I have been having an existential crisis. I had a Seventh Seal-tier meltdown Friday, thinking about all the shitty things that have happened in my life and wondering where the fuck god has been in all this.

And then today I had this autistic meltdown because I caught a glimpse of a WHO doomsday-ish headline and I started thinking, is anything worth it anymore? What point is there in living when other people have control and I have no say?

I regret everything. I regret not trying to do more and letting fear and other people hold me back from doing shit. I look back on my past and all the time I wasted fighting with assholes/toxic mofos and trying to be Joan of Arc and I wish I could slap myself in the face. Why was I so stupid? And now I don't know when I will ever be able to do anything I want to do. I feel like all my dreams were a lie and that maybe the darkness I see when I close my eyes at night is the fact that there is nothing. That there is no future. And it scares me.

I wish I could turn back time one year and do one thing right that I always wanted to do, like move to Europe, write a book, or whatever. Just anything that I said I would do but didn't. If I put as much passion and energy as I do into being angry and fighting intellectual battles with my enemies, I could have done something else and been more productive. But instead I haven't done anything and I am so ashamed of my own ineptitude. I am really, really fucking dumb sometimes and I wish I knew how to walk away from toxic people instead of letting them hurt me and draw me into their bullshit. And my family believes in me and it makes me even more ashamed because they're all really well accomplished and I am just this bumbling ball of angst and fire who more enemies than friends, a dismal bank account, and nothing to show for it. Fuck.

I see so many good artists, compare myself to them and feel like what I do is so disposable . I know drawing is something I genuinely love doing , regardeless of external approval, and I'm not bad at it, but now I feel like it's such pointless thing for me to show my stuff. To me, finding new artists I like is such a joy, I love seeing people's creations and expressions, I guess part of me wants to be able to give someone this experience too, but now I'm just feeling worthless.

My boyfriend doesn't do enough for our relationship when it comes to dating.
I know he loves me a lot, and his love seems to be growing more and more, and I love him too, and he's very gentle, kind and patient.
But there's nothing outside of that. I feel like if I spent a whole month never telling him "Ok next date we should go to x" he would simply never notice and be ok just staying at home. I asked if he'd be down to go somewhere cute this week but I'm tempted to say nothing about it and see how long it takes him to realize.
He's like that with his friends too. Whenever he does go out it's always "X wanted to go so I went". His own plans never work out unless someone else takes the reigns.
Staying at home is fine, I don't need to be outside all the time, but he doesn't cook, and is shit at planning. He also doesn't clean his place even though he knows I like to come over to play video games from time to time.
He doesn't shave unless I tell him to, and a lot of the time he shaves poorly, even though he knows his beard isn't worth keeping (he's self conscious about it) and I like clean shaved men.

I feel like an asshole for saying this, but he got me a sorta pricey (for our respective budgets) but very practical birthday present and at first I was simply happy to have it and I use it often. But looking at all those times he has failed to properly date me, I feel disappointed that he didn't wrap it in gift wrap, didn't write me at least a little card, didn't get me a couple of flowers… I normally wouldn't care but it's just that everything combined, it's more like I'm trying to "win him over" like someone in love would and he just follows along.

Sorry for long vent. I ignored it for the past couple of months pretending I wasn't the only one doing things for him/us but the realization hit me.

I have this one 'friend' and honestly the only person who considers me her friend but fucking hell, whenever she talks to me it is ALWAYS about her. Always. I know she knows absolutely nothing about me because she just talks to me about what has been happening with her and what she is thinking and expects me to reply with great detail about every single thing and that is always how our conversations go and it is so exhausting, I am so tired of listening to her 20 min voice memos of just talking about herself. I really cannot stand it. She has been my friend for 4 years and found out yesterday that I have a parrot. Only because I uploaded a pic of the parrot on IG. And she thinks it's great convos we have when it is just het droning on and on about herself. I don't know if I should bring it up to her or just absentmindedly listen to her and reply generically. I don't even bother replying a lot because the story she tells me, she has already told 3 of her other friends in great detail and I'm the last person she is telling it to because she can't help not talk about herself.

I just cannot deal with my mother. I have never liked her and do not really have too many fond memories with her, even though I really do try to see the good in her. She's a religious narcissist who has always belittled me and then expects me to fawn over her. She is a violent and jealous person who did have to deal with some tough things during her life, but why does she think that gives her the right to always treat me badly? Ever since I was a child, her and my father have convinced me that I am inherently bad and that my nature is evil (I love my siblings, boyfriends and even my parents very much and I don't think I am evil but IDEK). The other day I overheard her on the phone talking about me, calling me a bad, bitter, ungrateful person to my sister (who defended me) but at that moment, I just lost hope. She expects me to call her everyday but she is just a bored housewife who doesn't even look after her kids- she literally has a maid. Her life consists of watching gossip channels on youtube, cooking a couple times a week and hating the way her life turned out (even though my dad would buy her pretty much anything she wants within reason). I just landed a new job and got a 2:1 in a respectable degree, and all she could say is "Well done. Well, now you're in the real world! Let me tell you, it's not nice!". She's even secretly spoken to my sister and told her she think's I got the job based on my looks and because the hiring manager is a creep. She acts like she does and says these things out of concern, but I can so clearly see it's her way of slyly belittling me. I am just getting so tired of her mean, controlling ways. I don't know if this is normal or not? Does anyone else deal with a mother like this? If so, how?

I'm just tired of being a dumping ground for her. I know she gives no fucks about me because she has many more friends. But I cannot muster up enough courage to have a conversation about this because I am really uncomfortable with talking about myself now because I never do it so it feels weird.

I’m tired of being alive. I was abused by my family and then when I reached out to others I became the victim of CSA at the hands of several people who saw my family situation and took advantage. It’s been six years but I’m miserable. I have been rejected from so many jobs lately, not even in my field but jobs like call centers, and I thought my field was lucrative but those jobs didn’t even call me back after the interview to reject me. I did well in school but I feel like everything is going wrong because there is something inherently wrong with me. I have to beg my parents for financial help because I’ve exhausted my savings and I don’t qualify for unemployment because I worked at my college for work study, not a real job. I don’t have health insurance and can’t see a therapist, even when I saw one I couldn’t bring up my childhood because it makes me suicidal to even think about it.

I bought one of my friends who I met through graduate studies years ago a customized birthday present. She seemed genuinely sad on her social media for mental health and ED reasons so I thought a surprise might cheer her up. Since purchasing the gift, while it's in transit, she keeps attacking Rowling for transphobia on facebook and it makes me cringe how she wouldn't be nice to me if she knew I agreed with her. She should have excellent reading comprehension, so she must be purposefully misinterpreting Rowling, but it doesn't even make sense because I've never seen her with trans friends. She's upsetting herself and I think it's very silly when it appears she doesn't have a dog in the race other than to virtue signal.


Unrelated but I hate it when men are in niche hobbies and try to lord their experience over everyone.
I posted in a wild foraging group after finding a plant that looked edible but smelled funny, so I just asked for the identification and if it was edible. It's a highly active group, I gave up after scrolling through about a hundred pics and didn't find it. Hundreds of pics are posted a day and my keyword search didn't help so it was easier to ask.
Straight away an experienced dude identified and confirmed it was not edible. Okay, thank you!
Then this second lady had to chime in with the same identification and joked that the plant smelled like cat pee. Hah. Alright. Thanks! Then some jerk replies to her and was all "AND STILL PEOPLE ASK IF IT IS EDIBLE HERE LOL." Fuck you dude, this group posts edible shit that's colored red, bleeds indigo, and basically looks and smells like something you shouldn't fucking eat. Yeah I'm gonna ask questions because I'm learning! Fucking a.

Sounds like you guys bought a non refundable ticket, canceled due to transit permit reasons and therefore only got some tax refund. It's weird though cause most airlines are a bit more lax with rescheduling because of all this covid mess. What airline have you bought the ticket with?

I don't want to get all race-war about it but white people will never understand how it feels to walk into an affluent area that is predominately white and get stared down as an arab or hispanic person. It's not even in my head, I walked into a restaurant to pick up an order and at least 10 people's eyes were on me and some people wouldn't stop despite making eye contact with them. I really want to ask them what the fuck they're looking at. It's like I'm invading their territory despite working in the area. It's even happened at a westernized middle eastern restaurant which I find fucking hilarious.

I'm black and I used to work in rural Iowa. In January a co-worker and I were at a small restaurant and an Amish family walked in and this little boy, couldn't have been older than 4, was looking at me the entire time. He was so young, I doubt there was racial intent behind it (plus the mother was clearly trying to get him to stop), I think I was literally the first non-white person he ever saw.

Well if he was a fan or a watcher then he probably got defensive because some men take criticism of the things they enjoy as a personal attack.

Everything is a womans fault. Even when discussing men and how they fuck up, it's suddenly about the fact 53% of women that voted, voted for Trump. No matter more men voted for him, no matter they're discussing a man, no matter more men than women are breaking COVID rules, OF COURSE it's actually the fault of women for "stanning" him. If those dumb bitches didn't enable this fully grown male things would be fine. And you can't call out the outright misogny without getting shit, of course.

I need to take a big step back from leftist spaces because they're just 99% identity politics. No one talks about the shit that matters.

In fact, has anyone ever trotted out % stats for men that voted for Trump? Why exactly is it down to women to do "the right thing"? Do people really not see the fucking sexism in this shit? Expecting women to vote in a particular way JUST because they're women?

My boyfriend is so fucking messy it irritates the hell out of me. I’m not the tidiest person myself, but I’ve become much more conscious of that since being with him because of we both are messy then we’d be living in trash.
Every other day I clean our room, bathroom, kitchen, the living room and do the dishes. When he comes in it’s like a fucking tornado and suddenly his clothes are everywhere, the couch is covered with crumbs, food is left everywhere, his fucking nicotine patch wrappers are all over the ground.
The worst part is we have roommates who are a very organized and tidy couple and while I am resentful that I have to clean up after this manchild, it’s embarrassing as hell and makes me feel even worse when they wind up cleaning his mess.

One of my biggest insecurities was being unable to secure an internship before I graduated. I did everything people recommend (going to my college's career center, reaching out to alumni, going on linkedin, consulting with my advisor, usajobs, etc.) but still was shit out of luck even though I started searching since sophomore year. I even applied somewhere my family member worked, but you needed like 90 credit hours at the time of application and I was a junior who would have more than enough hours once the internship started. I still applied but of course got rejected. I still feel burning jealousy when I look at other people's LinkedIn and see their list of internships and accomplishments.

i recently lost my best friend of 5 years over some stupid shit and i'm in a lot of pain. im spiraling really hard and lashing out at people and losing weight and sleep i keep bursting into sobs with no warning and cycling between blaming myself and hating her. there's never going to be any coming back from what happened and my heart is completely broken. we had kind of a fucked up dynamic where she was always in and out of psych wards and i was always pushing down my problems and prioritizing her. i just couldn't prioritize her anymore and she flipped out and started blaming me for shit that didn't even sense. she went ballistic in the street and got the cops called on her and everything. it broke my heart so much. this whole thing is just really painful. the last text i sent her before blocking her everywhere said "fuck you." it was deserved, but it's just so jarring to me, i'd never said a single mean thing to her before that no matter what she threw at me

i think my bf is going to break up with me soon. even if he comes back, he'll break up with me once i move away in a month and a half.

this is my first relationship and i did so many things for him hoping he'll eventually return it. early on he even admitted he should and that he would learn to be more thoughtful. i was being very patient as he's not naturally inclined to plan and be thoughtful. i do believe that he loves me more than anything, but he revealed that me moving away soon makes it hard for him to give his all in the relationship.

it hurts so fucking bad. it's like he was just chilling, accepting my unconditional love and attention for months, while knowing he would never make it up to me before our relationship eventually explodes due to distance (according to him).

he swears it's not like that and that he doesn't want to break up but he keeps flip flopping between "it's who i am", "i should but i can't" and "we have different expectations". how am i supposed to believe that he doesn't want to give up on us when he sees no future for us and thinks he inherently cannot meet the basic requirements for a boyfriend?

i wish i could be all bad-bitch "THERE ARE TONS OF OTHER SINGLE MEN/WOMEN OUT THERE READY TO SPOIL ME ANYWAY!!! I DON'T EVEN NEED HIM" and say fuck it but i'm a retard who can't have sex so every relationship is bound to implode when the other person realizes they can't spend an indefinite amount of time with someone who never reciprocates any sexual feelings.

i feel like shit looking at the past, i feel like shit being in the present and i feel like shit thinking about the future. shoot me

That sucks, but it seems he is not the right person for you. You want your romantic life to be a solved problem so you are putting your expectations on him to be the one.

Don't worry, it will hurt for a while but you will find someone else. Don't ever be with someone that loves you less than you love them. It's a recipe for humiliation and disaster.

i knew he wouldn't be The One because we have different life paths but i thought we could have something special for as long as it could last.

it double sucks because until a couple of years ago, i stopped myself from living because i couldn't deal with the fact that everything eventually comes to an end. i thought there was no point building human relationships when i was supposed to move away in a semester, a year, two years. (i'm often between continents since starting university)

while i was abroad for a year i learned that if you give your all for even just 5 months, those 5 months will be forever valuable to you and there's nothing that can replace that. a relationship wasn't a failure just because it didn't last 5 years.

ut now i'm met with my old mindset in the form of a different person. was i suppose to treat him like a pet i use for cuddles while watching netflix and nothing else?

maybe you're right. it just wasn't meant to be. but i wish he would have simply broken up with me instead of accepting all my love and time knowing he wouldn't do more than the very bare minimum.

sorry for rant it just went downhill so fast yesterday lmao.

today i saw a lady strung out on drugs (i think heroin) passed out in a parking lot as her boyfriend screamed at her and a made up person and flung shit everywhere, breaking bottles and taking her limp hand and smacking him across the face. ive seen plenty of druggies before but theyve never seemed to have overdosed and it was so frightening to watch her barely able to open her mouth to respond to the police… and to witness her be abused by what im assuming is a paranoid schizophrenic was awful. she seemed so sweet from what i could tell and she couldn't even move on her own. i think im actually somewhat traumatized by it because i honestly thought she was going to die and i still dont know if shes going to be okay but they still took her to the hospital. it just really upsets me i guess that drugs have to exist and people can just get caught in it so easily as well as what seems to be a toxic, abusive relationship with another drug addict who i think has been supplying her because the officer could only find over the counter pills in her bag. the boyfriend fled the scene too because in his daze he could tell he was fucked up and i know he has problems but im just so fucking mad at him and i dont even know this man.

I hung out with a group of frens for years in my early twenties. We used to hang out once or twice a week and go watch movies, watch comedy stuff on youtube, go out to eat, do activities like bowling, etc. It was pretty normie tier stuff, it was all good.

Around two to three years ago though, they started changing to be more and more on the computer and doing less outside. They wanted to do less and less, not go to movies, we didn't really play boardgames anymore. It literally involved me meeting up with them and them being content to continue play computah, even the simple walk to the shop became rare.

Tbh I'm kinda hurt because it was the most comfy time of my life with them. I don't know if they're sick of me or they just hang out with new people. But I have a feeling they don't, they don't play board games anymore, they don't watch movies, they don't seem to go out and do things. They even appear to be seeing each other less and less.

Am I wrong in feeling frustrated with how they live their life and with how I'm judging them? I just wanted better for them than to remain playing the same games everyday after work, I feel bad because they're smart and capable men and they're going to be that way their entire lives, literally regressing into soy shit.

I'm trading in my 7 edge for an s20 through samsung but I don't know if the third party service they use will credit me anything past $25 cause of how severely cracked this phone is. I even selected that the phone doesn't meet all qualifications because of cracks but I still think they highballed the discount. Meaning I'll likely owe more money after I send it in, ughhh.

Not only multiple cracks on the front, but back as well.
I smashed the front with an axe point (stupid story) and while it's somehow functional, I'm not sure what constitutes a "dead pixel." It looks like the phone might've picked up moisture and gunk from the big cracks and now there's an off green cloudiness. Even though the image behind isn't dead in any way. It somehow being able to function through all this has been the reason why I've held onto my phone for as long as I have. So who knows, I doubt they'll give me anything for this broken fossil.
I can't wait for my new phone.

I’m a mixed person, half and half and honestly I’m tired of being involved or talking about black lives matter and black issues.

I’m not even attracted to black men or women. I’m bi

And I feel like I never have been but on a friend level I get in with anyone. Sexually, no.

But I don’t want kids with a black guy or girls (different situation I’m aware).

Being tied down into a depressing history, I struggle enough with my own hair let alone having a kid with probably even coarser hair. It’s a nightmare. And I just don’t think black babies are cute anyway. I don’t even find mixed babies that cute and I can’t understand what the hype is. It’s ridiculous.

I don’t hate being half black or black people. It’s just the drama it all comes with. The history, the arguments, the envy, the harassment.

I think I’ve always known I’ve never wanted to be with someone fully black. After being bullied by misty black people and Pakistanis in my school as a kid. That put me off the most and all this reverse racism shit annoys me.

Black people get shit and I understand but it annoys me when people say they can’t be racist. They’re racist as fuck. Don’t get me started about what they say to Asians. Asians are and can be as bad. Whites - as bad. But I’m tired of black people being excused due to the fucking movement.

I just roll my eyes now and I pray my future kids don’t have to put up with the same shit like I had to. No wonder black people are breeding out.

Everyone hates each other and it’ll only get worse.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

My mother is so disgusting. There's this disgusting smell coming from her, it's all sour and nasty and whenever she's around I hold my breath and hope that she'll quickly leave me alone. She doesn't wear any underwear, pees and takes a shit with the bathroom door open (despite everyone literally yelling at her for so many years now to close it but she gets mad every time someone tells her to), walks around with her tits out in front of everyone (and sometimes even half naked), doesn't take a shower when she needs to and then has the GUTS to get mad at everyone in the family who dares to criticize her and then starts legit screeching (not screaming, she seriously screeches) over how we are disrespecting her and don't know how to treat our precious mother right, and then runs to my father and starts telling him about how we attacked her again for the nth time today (even though she is always the one who starts the fights). Go take a shower you disgusting smelly fuck, it's not that deep. Us telling you to take a shower has nothing to do with being a bunch of "disrespectful children" or whatever the fuck you're deluding yourself into thinking. I swear I hate her so much. She's the perfect example of a mentally ill abusive mother. Throughout my entire life she's always been insisting on being right and you're wrong, literally fights with everyone everyday, always resorts to violence and insulting her children instead of acting like a normal parent, everyone is out to get her, everyone wants to attack her, everyone is jealous of her, they want to be her so bad, they want her life so bad,… yadda yadda. The only tolerable thing back then was that she changed her clothes regularly and took a shower. Now that's not even the case anymore, she changes her top but then wears the same sweatpants with no underwear that already smell so fucking bad. I want to lose my ability to smell.

At least yours is outright psycho so you can feel good in knowing anyone would think she's psycho.
Mine is a great actress from having a theater degree and being a teacher so she knows the right things to say and how to behave around the right people. Meanwhile behind closed doors her smug and high horse mask slips for an occasional screechout. Same shit with not being able to close the bathroom door and walking around naked. She fancied herself the center of the universe when I lived with her, yet also a selfless martyr whenever we had company.

I want a girlfriend so bad. I haven't dated for six years and those relationships were in high school so idk if you can even call them actual serious relationships.
I vaguely remember what it felt like to look at someone and think "I'm so lucky, I never want to be anywhere but here". How good it felt.

But I'm too much of a mess to even create a tinder profile or even talk to people online to just make friends. Not to mention in real life. I'm too scared of liking someone again and them breaking my heart or finding my ADHD ass annoying and ghosting me. At this rate I'll be lonely forever as all my friends get married and live their perfect little married suburban lives while I'm that one person who reluctantly attends their kids birthday parties and brings vodka because what are you supposed to bring to kids birthday parties really? And eventually I'm 49 and end up in an unhappy sham marriage with some potbellied white guy named Gary who has a receding hairline and who wears cargo shorts and who thinks Seinfeld is a pinnacle of comedy.

I was not close to her, I only met her a few times (she was the girlfriend of a friend) but she was part of the group of lesbian and bi women in university who helped me figure out my bisexuality, we even went at the local pride and hung out near the lesbian float, it was awesome.

Worst thign about my mom is that she made us grow up fat and malnourished (worst fucking combo and thanks I have the lowest self esteem ever) and thanks to my fucking aspergers and ED-like mind thinking I'm so fucking picky and stupid with food
Like tbh she might not be the worst parent ever but she was always so uncaring? Even though she basically says that isn't true
She never went to therapy even though she should had, like she just sleeps all day and always has to mention how tired she is
But worst thing ever is that she always always always only makes 1 single dish for us to eat ALL DAY like ok, she for example makes one piece of meat for me and my crazy ass brother (he's a legit diagnosed schizo) and calls it a day, like, that's all your meal for the day kek, not gonna bother doing more I guess

My ex always for some reason got mad at me for not knowing what eating a true meal is but can you blame me? sometimes we would only eat chips for lunch and that's it lmao kill me please
And then I figured out that a meal for normal families is like, one piece of meat, a serving of vegetables, and a serving of carbs, I literally just grew up eating one of those things a day and then scavenging for whatever food was on the fridge
Sometimes she would just buy 3 large pizzas and give us the equivalent of one to each person in the family lol and since I'm literally stupid I thought this was normal

I'm trying to learn how to cook but I'm literally so STUPID I can't cook for shit and it's not like I can use her food because she gets angryyyyyy and I don't have money to buy my own atm but god

At my practice, if you have an animal for 30+ days you are legally the owner. Call the microchip company ASAP to change the information. If you're unsure of the MC company, see if you can bring it to a clinic to get it scanned.

Do the vet papers have the MC information? You can generally figure out which company it is by googling the first couple of numbers + microchip. But you need to do this like yesterday

No. 584859

Well that's not ideal but basically proof that she's just trying to intimidate you. Dogs are property, even if it was a gift of sorts with no money exchange, this is basically like suing someone to get a Christmas present back. I doubt any good attorney would even take on the case. In the meantime, get the microchip changed/removed, gather any receipts of vet visits, food, and toys you've bought for the dog, if you want to be on the safe side. She would have to prove that you stole the dog to claim legal ownership basically, but she can still be a psycho and try to steal it from you or something so be careful.

Clinic anon here, they don't usually give tags for MC, but some MC will come with a card that has the MC information on it. Local vet will be able to scan her for a chip, and sometimes if you're nice to the front desk, front desk can trace the chip for you, or at the very least inform you what company it's registered to. Then all you have to do is call the company and tell them you need to update the information.

Rabies tag is good identifying info also, they are unique, so write that number down somewhere just in case.

You'll be fine anon, I promise. Thank you for giving this pup a good life!!

I would make a google drive where you upload any pertinent pup info - screenshots/pdfs of email/text exchange, medical hx, up-to-date pup pictures, etc.

Also, when vet scans the microchip, take a picture with your phone, and upload that to the Google drive too so you have it somewhere!

Same anon, I blanked, there are MC tags - like the HomeAgain ones look like little yellow houses, but I find a lot of the time people throw em out.

I'm sure the clinic will be okay with doing a free MC scan btw. Just call them ahead and ask if they're okay with it. (Depending on how their social distancing is going). Let them know the situation if you feel comfortable, but that you would like to get her MC info changed ASAP to give yourself peace of mind.

Don't waste your money on home laser, it's bunk. I tried it about ten times in my armpits and it never killed any hair. All it did was zap my skin, which I guess made people think it worked but all the signs (hair pushing out, smell of hair burning, etc) weren't there.

Get a deal on groupon. I paid 524USD total for my brazillian years ago (I feel like I could've gotten it cheaper though), and recently 145USD total for my armpits. I figured it would be worth it since waxes cost like 50-70 per.

Watching the newest video essay from The Take on female friendships made me feel so lonely, I miss having female friends so bad… after college I moved out not only away from the only female friend I had left but also into a job environments that are predominantly male and I've never managed to connect with any of these few other women I worked with; and that only friendship deteriorated unfortunately. High school times of having a group of girl friends feel almost surreal, like it wasn't me. I wish I can have anything like that in the future.

But now I am on the other side of the country from all my friends and family and I am just so lonely. I'm trying to make friends but I live alone and it doesn't seem appropriate to ask people to hang out now.

Have you considered fostering kittens? It's kitten season rn and a lot of shelters are getting full. I would recommend if you could foster kittens on the older side (4-7 weeks, generally they're adoptable at 8wks), as the younger ones need to be fed and stimulated around the clock. It's really wonderful to see them grow up and learn to do things! I could watch young kittens for hours tbh.

Although, if you think your prof would be okay with you bringing a baby to class [1-3weeks], all you would need is a hot pad (microwaveable kind that stays warm for ~8hrs) and KMR (kitten milk replacement). You could keep the kitten in a soft carrier with a towel on top of the hot pad, and just take it out to feed/stimulate every 2 hours. Stimulating is easy, you just take a tissue or toilet paper, wet it a little bit, and rub it on their genitals/butthole, and that helps them go.

Only downside for these babies is you have to do it at night too! So that's why I usually recommend the slightly older kittens that can wait a little longer between feedings/stimulating. (4+ weeks).

Sorry, I went into a bit of a kitten rant there, but I think they're fascinating little creatures and a wholesome distraction to bleakness. Plus, you'd be the most popular kid in class - just, uh, clear it with your profs first, I guess!

Congratulations on med school! I'm proud of you!

I’m so sick of these reddit posts (yes I know Reddit is the problem) about how women get complimented 240000000 times a day and men survive mentally on 1 compliment every leap year. It’s so fucking stupid. First off, gee, I wonder how many “compliments” are just disgusting comments on women’s bodies. Second, shut the fuck up about your pathetic self pity about how many compliments you get. Men acting like they’re so neglected because women aren’t going “ooh nice bulge” 24/7. On average how many people actually get compliments daily that aren’t creepy? From strangers? It’s a weird embarrassing trend I hope dies down.

I honestly wonder how would the even react if they got to experience the dirty old men telling them they have a nice ass or the wonders of creepy ass teenagers telling them they got a nice bulge and that they can’t wait to get in their pants.

The majority of those fucking idiots wouldn’t be able to handle the first “compliment” and would probably freak out.

No. 584946

Agree. Also, why do these dumbass men put the burden on women to compliment their ugly asses? A large portion of the compliments women get are from other women. If these guys think men not getting complimented is such a major issue, how about they make a change and start complimenting their fellow male friends, family, coworkers, etc.? Nah, let's blame it all on women.

No. 584949

so imagine your bf follows someone on twitter who is literally their perfect match to a T, appearance, personality, hobbies, sense of humour, everything. you express that it bugs you, due to your own insecurities. he gets upset but seems to slow down on the likes of his twin. one day it’s really bad, you get upset and leave to cool off. then by some WEIRD coincidence the twins account doesn’t exist anymore. What the actual FUCK….I wasn’t blocked, I never followed her and her account was active a few hours ago. You ask him to tell you the truth and there’s just silence on his end. My gut is telling me something is off.

Maybe if they put in 0.1% of the effort women put into being attractive, they would get compliments too. But no, most of them are hideous and would take a compliment as proof of your interest in them, and the ones who are actually attractive have such huge egos they don't deserve compliments.

Men compliment us to try get it in, women compliment each other because we're all constantly pressured to look perfect and want to be kind. Not our problem if they don't have the same goodwill towards each other.

"Waaah men can't hide their ugliness with makeup!" Yes you can, start wearing makeup. (Also beards are low-key makeup. Men can hide their weak jaw and double chin with a good beard. Women can't do that.)

Just very suspicious timing, sorry if I sound paranoid but the dude is a hyper autist…so am I, with many of my own problems due to childhood molestation and low self esteem.

I can't believe it that i still have to encounter other family member, a sister in law who actually turned out to be the exact same nutjob as my mother.
I feel like as if I am a weak person because everytime there'd be a family meet up that includes this womanchild (who is trying to compete with me while being 7 years older than me. Ironically enough kins MyMelody on internet…) I end up having panic attacks and after each meeting I'd spend time crying alone in a shower and feeling like shit for a week.

I also have a narcissistic mom. I cut contact with her for a few years when my dad, siblings and I moved to a new state. She'd fly out to where we lived just to stalk us. She'd try to show up at our schools unannounced, or we'd see her peeking over our backyard fence trying to look into our house. We were always worried she'd try to poison our dogs.

I passed a major professional exam yesterday and now I can actually get a job in my field, but I'm depressed about my score

I've always done extremely well in school and even though all that matters on this test is getting above a 50% my brain just keeps telling me that I got a 65% and I should have studied more. It's the dumbest thing to fixate on because no one will ever see this score, I'm just insecure

am i an asshole for losing my attraction to someone after they told me their sexual history?

So I met this guy a bit ago. We really clicked and bonded over the fact that we are both entering Orthodox Christianity despite not being born into it. I told him my story about how my suicide attempt led me to find God and turn my life around.

He related to me and told me his story as well. He told me that he used to be a sex addict and a drug user and was going down a really bad path in life, but then recently discovered Orthodox Christianity. Not a pretty past, but I accepted it at the time and we started talking more. We have had so many good conversations and I do enjoy talking to him a lot.

Suddenly he told me he wanted to pursue something romantic with me. I told him I am interested but I am not ready because I still have a lot of work to do on myself since my suicide attempt wasn’t that long ago, he agreed and we kept talking.

Gradually he started to get into more details about his past without me asking. I told him I would never judge him and I still don’t but what he told me made me lose interest in him romantically. He would constantly tell me these graphic stories about girls he’s dated or slept with and specific things they’d do sexually, but then always tie it into some irrelevant story later. There’s no point to tell me those things but somehow he felt the need to.

It almost felt like he was bragging sometimes. That his ex girlfriend was beautiful and a japanese model, that he got oral sex from a girl in the Philippines on a highschool trip, his neighbor growing up with had huge boobs, etc…. Not things that I wanted to know, very off topic stuff.

Then he told me more and more. That his body count is at least above 60, that he has slept with both genders, participated in group sex, and even had sex with older women.

Again I do not judge him for these things and I don’t see myself any better than him. But with this knowledge I do not think someone with that sort of past is who I want to be romantically involved with. He swears he’s a different person now and it really seems like it but I know sexual addiction isn’t an easy thing to beat and his problems could always come back. That’s not something I’m prepared to deal with.

I just feel less attracted to him altogether. I’m not a person who sleeps around a lot, and I have jealousy due to my insecurities that will eat at me if I pursue him. We have lived very different lives. I just don’t want to deal with the baggage that comes from knowing these things.

If I am the asshole please explain. If i’m not then does anyone have an idea on how I can tell him what I’m feeling without hurting him?

For me it seems like it's not even that much of a body count issue - though it's important too - but more so of him claiming to be a recovered sex addict and yet brag in details about his past experiences. Even if he wouldn't have this many partners in the past, going into details of his past sexual experiences unprompted is a big red flag.

I have a similar body count but I sure as hell don't feel the need to make people listen to in depth descriptions of all the weird and wonderful sex I've had… doesn't seem right that he would think that's ok. He has to realise that he's crossing a boundary there and that's a shitty thing to do to someone under the guise of 'I'm just opening up/offloading some of my past'

I have a similar story, my former best friend was extremely abrasive, but she had a hard life and tons of trauma, so I saw why she was the way she was and made excuses for it for 8 years. Every time we fought, I'd apologize to keep the peace, or she'd start talking to me again without apologizing but being a little nicer and I recognized it as her way of trying to show that she was sorry, but she couldn't say it. One day I was the one in crisis and had just gotten out of the hospital, I responded only sporadically for 2 weeks because I was at the lowest point of my life (which she knew) and she unfriended me on FB where all our online communication took place, which broke my heart but I accepted it as the end of our friendship. So after that she messaged me on a different platform she had never talked to me on, just to tell me how disappointed she was that I had dropped her friendship, when she was the one to symbolically cut ties. I was too exhausted to argue with her about it anymore. The truth was that I often felt like ending our friendship because of her behavior, but I had a really hard time doing it. So in a way I'm relieved, but I still miss her. She was the only person I could talk to about certain shit and she left a hole in my life.

Reddit's go-to male feminist subreddit (I forget its name) has a rule in the sidebar that second wave feminism is "the wrong feminism" and only third wave is correct.

Men need to be reminded that feminism isn't for them and they have no place in it. It doesn't matter what they think or their opinions about it.

I wish peoplew would stop with the "feminism helps men, too!" bullshit. Feminism isn't meant to help men, it's meant to dismantle the system that gives them their power that they use over us. The system that lets them rape/beat/murder us and get away with it. No male can be an actual feminist because to do so would make him complicit in his own downfall

I should've fucking known better than to go wedding dress shopping with my mom. She has no concept of how much wedding expenses actually cost and it's so embarrassing. I'm already trying to be as frugal as possible which is why I wasn't interested in going to a boutique but she wanted to "just check" and while I was trying the first dress on I heard her asking for mother of the bride dresses. I found a dress that looked good on me but was way too fucking expensive for something I'm wearing to a micro-wedding that is outdoors. And it's not "me" at all - too much sparkles and heavy. I wanted something flowy and minimalistic and this was the exact opposite but it did look good. Now she wants me to get it and is pressuring me to get it… but the $700 dream dress of mine is "too expensive" which actually just means she doesn't like it. No problem shelling out money for something she wants though. Typical.

That's exactly how male feminists feel, too. They're just way more sneaky about it. A lot of women won't waste time with a male walkikng about calling women bitches and saying he's anti-feminism.

In my experience men who call themselves feminists think that it absolves them of any crime against women now and forever - that they’ve done all the hard work of “respecting” women already and now they can do no wrong. Describing themselves as a feminist is such a brave (read: humiliating for a man) act that they’re obviously made of that good stuff, no question - and if you dare question it, they’re going to get angry.
This type of man also sees it as a tool for getting women to let their guards down, sort of like a gay best friend, oh he wouldn’t hurt me, he cares about women, he’s for us. No, he’s not.
My ex was a “feminist” and he was a shitty, woman-hating rapist. He would insult me in front of strangers (like cashiers) or our friends, he really enjoyed calling me a bitch in a “jokey” way, and he’d force himself on me and the next day be all “I feel like I went too far… I’m sorry… please tell me if I did wrong, I don’t want you to feel disrespected…” and I would assure him it was okay, it was no issue etc, because I was an idiot and didn’t want him to be upset (or get angry), when it was plain and simple garden-variety rape that an imbecile could have recognised as such. But if a mutual friend brought up some guy being creepy towards her - not excusable, but sometimes just a bit weird - he would pile on as if this guy were the most disgusting human who ever lived. Current bf would never call himself a feminist but I’ve never been happier.
Stay away from “feminist” men, honestly.

No. 585345

Hmm I see your point, I think I'm finding myself in this middle ground - if a guy claims he is not a feminist he's most likely brainwashed by male-centric internet communities, but then if a man goes out of his way to make sure everyone hears he IS a feminist, it's most likely a way to stay undercover and get brownie points for nothing. Ideally I feel it would be to have the man be educated and support feminism, so - when asked - admit to being a feminist without some weird shame or weird pride, but not make his stance on it part of his personality.
Also I'm so happy for you to be with someone good now, your ex was just AWFUL.

I'm so sick of people in my apartment complex who have poorly behaved, under socialized dogs that they bring to the dog park anyway. They always end up cornering my dog and she ends up screaming at them to get them to leave her the fuck alone, I feel so bad for her. She has a birth defect which makes it difficult for her to run fast enough to get away from them so she can't even get away from them and they're always too stupid to know that her literally screaming in their face means to leave her alone. 99.9% of the time it's people who own male huskies, german shepherds, and australian shepherds who got them bc ~trendy~, are too lazy to train them or exercise them enough, and refuse to get them neutered. If your dog comes into the park and immediately starts trying to mount my dog who was spayed 2 years ago before she even had her first heat, maybe consider neutering jfc. And then they sit there on their phone the whole time and don't even pay attention.

My mother in law is disappointed in me. Strangely enough the thing that bothers her the most is my plan to pursue a PHD in child development. It shouldn't bother me, but I have a horrible relationship with my own mother and the fact that she is disappointed in me makes me feel terrible. She thinks it is a waste because I am a fairly intelligent person, and she wants me to pursue something more prestigious, but I can't help what I feel passionate about. The reason why I even want to get into the field is to change the education system in whatever way I can through more research oriented work. I know I can defend it, but I still feel a sense of shame that I am not doing something that is more sensible. Everytime my husband calls her she asks what my educational plans are as if they have changed and she just sighs.

Anon, if it helps, I went through a lot of what you are dealing with with my grandfather. I am getting my Associates in French and looking at a BA in Comparative Literature; the first two years of my education my grandfather was incredibly abusive towards me because I didn't want to be an engineer like him. I used to get screamed at by him constantly and it's only been recently that he's kind of less of an asswipe about it as I am an honors student, but he still insists that anything to do with reading/literature/culture isn't as "important" as him diddling around with satellites and drones. He constantly tries to pull the "I made a ton of money" card on me like that is somehow more important, when our family is fucking dysfunctional as fuck. And most of his wealth he made with the help of my grandmother.

The funny thing is…he has shit reading comprehension skills. Like so bad even when he was working at Boeing, he had to get a hooked on phonics type program to help expand his vocabulary because his reports were utter fucking shit.

Get your phd anon, because you don't know what wonderful things you may do with it. You may become head of a university or something.

Yesterday I hung out with my friends and their boyfriends, and I sort of realized that I found their boyfriends more interesting to talk to and I feel weird about this. Like, with the guys I could discuss many subjects like politics, history, social issues, albums, movie analyses, etc. With my female friends the topics are relationships and planning children which usually makes me feel left out because I don't have a boyfriend and I don't want children. They don't follow politics and not interested in theoretical discussions in general. I'm not sure if I have a bit of internalized misogyny going on and that's why I find men more relatable or I should just find more friends with varied interests. It doesn't help that my best friend - one of the girs I hung out with yesterday - constantly tells me that I'm like a guy (which, for her, is the same category as children. She has this worldview that men and children are helpless little things who need to be taken care of by women)

You just need childless female friends. You've got to understand that family is the single most important thing in people's lives, and compared to it, all other topics are trivial. This is why your friend considers you childish from her point of view. You're just not on the same level, and to her you seem immature.

Holy fuck, I have bottled this up for so long but I can't take it anymore. I cannot tolerate the samefags in the Venus thread, at all. They do nothing but make bullshit tinfoils over the tiniest shit and they're clearly cows themselves.
I found the instagram of a couple of them months ago because they're terrible at keeping anonymous and flood the same bullshit from the thread onto her instagram comments and one is genuinely just Lillee Jean but with a extremely strange vendetta against Amazon.
She photoshopped herself into a British court to pretend she's suing Amazon for people on their forum picking on her, I wish I was joking.
Her 10k+ followers are all so fake they comment how to buy followers on her pictures. I was saving that info for a cowtipper thread but it's become obvious anons like her will just enjoy the negative attention and encourage them further.
I think lolcow can't be saved at this point, we would really be better off if /w/ as a whole was nuked because nothing I've read on there has ever been worthwhile and not many people would miss it.

I'm a poorfag, I live alone and support myself barely through shitty freelance work. A few years ago I was sexually assaulted by a bus driver while coming home from a late night shift and I ended up leaving everything related to the police report and stuff like that to my parents because I was in a really bad state. I just recently won the lawsuit that was made against the bus company that I wasn't even aware of, and I won some good money that I'll get soon.
My mum wants to control the money and how it'd be used, and she wants to put it towards buying a home for my sister, because she's 32 with a young kid and still living with her.
I don't even know how I'm gonna approach my mum about it, because while I'd love helping my sister, she has a much better job than I do and she even recently got implants and a tummy tuck and shit like that, so I'm sure she didn't move out because of financial issues.
I really need braces and jaw surgery not only for aesthetic reasons but also because my ugly ass goblin jaw is starting to affect my eating, and tbh I also don't wanna spend my early 20s looking like the indian jokar. Those procedures are costly and if I were to save money with my shitty job and paying for studies and bills I'd get it by the time I'm late 30s. This is the only chance I have to get it, but I think my mum will be pissed.

Never cp unless you count that infant in the toilet, thank god. It's just a complete wasteland. I'm sorry you had to see that. The same happened today too with the rapist teacher, tards sharing the pictures 'for awareness'. Like, that boy who got raped wouldn't want that shared so people can 'thats so sad' in the comments. Grown ass people too, it's fucking ridiculous. My mom browses facebook and like a week ago she showed me a man being eaten by a lion in a zoo and was like 'look at this anon' like girl.

I feel like my friends look down on me a lot because I'm the fattest in the group, and so they feel anything I do fitness-wise they could do too. To an extent it's true, but most of them are girly girls who don't really like to sweat and expend a lot of effort.
Knowing this I did a mountain hike but I went solo. Personally, I like doing hikes solo so I don't have to worry about someone else's pace and I can take my time if I need breaks or if I want to sightsee, and my friends are impatient and don't really care about nature to begin with. So it was best to had gone alone. Grabbed my camelbak and off I went. I had a great time but the hike to the mountain summit was indeed extremely strenuous, which is deceiving. Even old people and young kids who went to the destination with the same impression I had did not make it to the very top. I hustled and made it after a few breaks, there were times when I felt dizzy. The other hikers there were very encouraging, and I got great pics of myself at the top even though I was a sweaty hot mess. A couple was nice enough to take a picture for me. The pictures at the top were gorgeous imo. I posted the pics to my social media and my friends seemed irritated that I didn't invite them, as if I kept a big secret away from them. They're just not the sweaty hiking types tho. Despite that they said they wanted to come along next time. One friend was so impatient that a few days later she went to the same mountain hike with a friend to attempt it. I hate to say it, but she had this air like "Oh my fat friend did it, so can I!" I warned her about the trail difficultly but told her to have fun and take lots of pics.
I don't think her and the friend actually made it to the very top. She only posted one picture to our group of the mountain range but it looks taken from a vantage point that wasn't the summit. Usually she's the type to post a bajillion pictures and selfies on public whenever she does something. So based on her message exalting how difficult it was, and how she and the other girl had to walk back, I don't think they made it all the way. It would have been too cool to not post if they had. Which must have been really disappointing because it's a big drive one way just to go out in the middle of nowhere to do that one thing.
Yeah I'm a little smug but maybe they shouldn't underestimate me so much. I don't quit.

Have you considered you're the problem? I've noticed women that complain about other women only talking about babies etc usually have a "cool grl" mentality and aren't giving them the chance. A girl said the same shit you have about my friend group once, but the actual issue was she was standoffish because she hated other women, latched onto one thing one of my friends said about her baby and decided that's all we talked about, and spent the entire time irritating the guys by trying super hard.

"This entire group of girls are shallow apart from me" isn't as likely as either A) you're the issue, or B) Your bf and his friends are shallow assholes that only date women for how they look.

Either way, let them fucking live. It doesn't make them vapid because they want to discuss children and makeup, the exact things society TELLS THEM they should care about.

Depends on what you consider a porn addict.

years ago I was in an abusive relationship in which I got whored out. literally. I was made to feel like I should contribute. I could not legally get a proper job, any job, so no one hired me. I ended up hooking. It was at a time when a look of these jobs became extreme, I attribute this to the increasing extremities of porn. So for example people wanted you to drink piss and chew on shit. Or they wanted to take videos. In the place I'm in I felt no option but to agree to do porn. This was years ago but I forever am anxious that it's online and that family view it r even people in my community. I feel so much shame and I hate myself for not being stronger to say no I won't. Instead I wanted to keep the peace and said ok no I'm find. I now live everyday waking up with the nott in my chest. Is this the day someone I know funds it? I'm scared and have been for years. I tried to numb it with alcohol and drugs. But it comes back. I'm so scared I think of how to look different. I just don't want to be scared anymore. I'm scared of my family fusing out.

For background my man and his sister are sort of black sheep in their conservative family, him being a quiet sort of bookish guy and her being a soft-all-over-triggered-by-birds-in-2016-tumblr sort of girl if you get my drift. (It does come in later I swear). I also need to point out the family does not believe in mental illness.

At the family gathering (30 people in a tiny room with 7 dogs) after the horrible news my fiancees grandmother ended up having a massive shitfit at his sister for crying too much that her mom has died. I thought that was pretty messed like I know it is pretty sheltered of me but jesus baby christ my grandmother would never do me dirty like that. My fiancee got into a row with his grandma and the rest of the family defending his sister, it was insane, I thought they were going to literally kill each other.

The sister as a result didn't want any of the extended family to clean out her mom's house and asked her brother (my financee), myself and her boyfriend to help her clean it all out. I was more than happy to help. It turned out that the mom was a bit of a hoarder, and liked cats. Upon walking in it was obvious that she had some sort of depression as the place was in very bad shape with trash, cat piss/shit everywhere along with massive amounts of useless purchased goods.

Anyway we got cleaning, buying all the supplies and stuff. I started sorting it all out, cleaning the poop and other bits. The place is absolutley stuffed with stuff, like 5000 allen keys in a box sort of hoarding. This lasted the past few days. Just my fiancee, me and the sister's boyfriend cleaning out the house. The thing is his sister has not done anything at all, like the entire time.She usually stood around watching me clean and and sort things away with this sort of venomous snooty glare, making snide comments about throwing out anything vulnerable. I thought that maybe she was mourning so I just brushed it aside.

However, today, I had heard her have a hushed conversation with her boyfriend about how "The 'insert nationality' girl needs to be watched so she doesn't steal anything important."
In all honesty it really hurt me. I had been going neck deep in a place I have never been before, for someone I care for nonetheless, but still I am absolutely fucked from playing maid. I feel terrible for feeling resentment in this situation.

On top of that today my fiancee found some bank statements that show that his mom had stolen money of his bank account and used his student loans to fuel her online bingo addiction. She has stolen over £6000 in his first year of uni. He has been broken up over it and on top of his grief for his sister, grandmother and his late mom I have no idea how to help him get better. Like I am here but it does not feel like enough, it is too insane for me to be the straight man in this but god dammit I am trying. Feels rough.

I've been regretting all of my life choices lately. I studied what I liked in college and graduated, but I regret not studying bio or chemistry because I'm seriously considering going to med school and being a radiologist. Lol but that would be 4 years of school then residency I don't have money for, plus I didn't study the right major to get into med school. I actually wish my family had put pressure on me to study something useful. I'm 22 and feel too old to go back now even though it's really young.

Me and my boyfriend need to move out from our current house because our neighbours are really annoying and my bf can't deal with them. Plus, our house is so humid everything molds super quickly, my bf even had mushrooms growing on his neck.

The neighbours are two old alcoholics who just shout every nights, try to start shit by mocking us in front of our door etc, my bf really wants to beat the shit out of them

It really stresses me out to look for a new place as my salary is pretty low (and I'm soon in an apprenticeship so it's only going to be pennies more) and my bf has a decent salary but since it's a contract that has an end date, it makes us less trustworthy to agencies of us being able to pay in the long run.

I really wanted to enjoy my holidays but I have this thing over my head + my bf being depressed + me starting to feel really low and feeling hopeless.

I know I just need a little push to actively research, but I'm afraid rejection and endless search is going to burn me out fast and I really don't need that right now. I just wish it was easier, and I feel like such a little bitch for even wanting this to be easier.

My manipulative ex made these accounts to circumvent a block on social media. It was so fucking rude and awful and unnecessary. I just want no contact because he is insane and untrustworthy and a liar and extremely pushy (with sex, too).
It ended with him making an attempt to fake a legit acc to request me again before I deactivated both my accounts. That was so creepy. I just had to deactivate. There was also a "porn bot" that might have been him. He had to charge up his phone again and sent me text messages today. The first one was manipulative that he really loved me and how little I appreciated him and that the block was proof. The second was that he appreciates me.
That gives me some warm feelings again.
I almost fantasised about him today. I don't see myself slipping but he's in my head for now.

Gonna go on a little moral fag rant.

I dont hang out here nearly as much as i did a few years ago and, to be honest, I havent even looked at /pt/ in months because it just started making me feel kind of sad. Watching people desperately clawing and grasping for milk that had already turned to stale powder makes me wonder how much some people must feel about themselves to be stalking these lolcows’ social media accounts just to be the first to post a screenshot of them being cringy… but its just some update of them being kind of boring? i mean these lolcows have done “cringy” things or were straight up terrible and Im here for calling that out, but sometimes its just a mundane status update just as vacant and shallow as your friends or even your own, or some anons pointing out a flaw in their photo like a stretch mark or peach fuzz that theyve had to zoom in 10x to find

its worse considering that a lot of them just seem mentally unwell. Its almost cringy watching people picking very obviously troubled people apart for laughs.

Gonna abandon thread after this one, but the TERFs are something else entirely. There could be a pic of the most Eurocentric ideal image of femininity and they’ll still get accused of being a man because they dont like their jawline. It makes me wonder how many regular women and teens are going through these threads, watching these other women getting picked apart because theyre so obsessed with hating trans women that theyve gone on to scrutinize the normal ones too, are here and probably internalizing all of that. Like even if you’re cis, if anyone judged you the way that TERFs judged anyone they suspected of being a trans woman, you just wouldnt pass. I honestly doubt that anyone here, like you if you’re here reading this, would actually pass.

I guess thats why TERFs are so intense? I get not wanting to date dick (Ive been with my wife before being trans was a big thing and the ones that I did know where into guys so idk how big of an issue pushy trans women in lesbian dating scenes is sorry) or wanting men to use being trans to prey on us in our private spaces, but when your community is picking apart women so meticulously that they cant even trust cis women anymore, its easier to uplift yourself by stepping on those trans women who arent as good as you, the real cis woman. You pick can trans women apart because theyre proof that you are feminine enough

Idk I just remember coming here from a thread I saw on /r9k/ thinking I could escape all of that misogynistic and extreme scrutiny of women, but its still here in a different flavor

Sometimes when my period comes a few weeks late, my body gives me a "mega period" where all the stocked up blood comes spewing out at once. I always get stomach aches, head aches, and feel very tired. Even if i wear a heavy duty pad sometimes it overflows during the night.

I also hate how period = women feel sick several days out of the month, but are expected to go about business as normal. In fact, we have to hide our periods to make men feel comfortable. I've always had to do crap like sneak a crunchy loud pad in my pocket around male classmates or coworkers.

I work at dome hepot and I am so frustrated and appalled by the current covid measures in place. It’s no surprise my county is at the top of the hot list. There are big signs outside the door saying masks are required, but per management we are not allowed to ask or confront a customer about wearing their mask. And don’t get me started on the customers who then YELL at me ability people not wearing masks, as if I have the ability to enforce it. The anti-maskers are just as bad but fuck at least they’re just potentially infecting me instead of cursing me out. We’re also supposed to be sanitizing the registers after each transaction, but only give us water and a reusable rag that hasn’t been washed or changed out in the last month to do so with. Now we have to take our temperature at work before we’re allowed to clock in, and if it’s too high have to go home but that counts as a call out and 3 of those will result in termination. It makes no fucking sense. I don’t want to get people sick but they are genuinely fostering an environment where people who are knowingly sick and can’t afford to lose their job have no choice but to go into work. All the whole portraying themselves as extremely health conscious and responsible to the mainstream media. It’s just so frustrating because I don’t want to get sick, I don’t want anyone who comes through my line to get sick from my register but at this rate it’s inevitable.

So I vowed to stay single after an extremely messy ending to a relationship that I jumped into way too fast. In the time since I've had a few companions that I have known for awhile but have overall been pretty damn reclusive.

Finally decided to meet up with someone, we met twice within the same week, things were going well… butterflies n stuff, and then he fucking ghosted me after I made plans to stay the night. He said he was feeling really sick and had fallen asleep. We talked back and forth a tiny bit the day after but now he hasn't talked to me in 3 days.

Wouldn't concern me normally but he was previously so eager and seemed to really be into me.

So here I am, worried that I ruined any chances with him because I said I've been thinking about fucking him nonstop, while simultaneously paranoid that I'm doing exactly what I've done before. Damn my brain that only shuts up when I can distract myself with another human. Damn my brain that gets so anxious I become a non-functioning ball of disassociating emptiness

I've vented about this previously. I joined a foraging group on facebook and I just don't understand how the 'regulars' there can be such pretentious pricks when people come to that identification group specifically meant for people to ask questions.

You know I've been in a lot of different hobbies like j fashion and gaming, but at least elitism made sense in those hobbies because most of that shit followed around money and readily available knowledge that didn't have any real bearing in regards to life or death.
Foraging is fucking free. It's a bunch of broke ass people bumbling about in a woods looking for shit to eat. Asking questions about the shit makes fucking sense because mistaken identity could actually injure someone or get themselves killed if something's poisonous. Imo there's way more at stake there than someone foolishly coordinating a dress or getting owned at a game cause they're a noob.
Like jfc, I HATE the people in this group even though it's been really helpful in my learning. It sucks when I think there's valuable discussion in the replies to certain posts only for these 'regulars' to be ribbing the OP over something retarded. They circlejerk themselves for thinking they're clever for being more knowledgeable than literal beginners and OFC one of the admins most guilty of this is some homely bitch whose only power is being in charge of this stupid group.

my neighbor is such a dumb bitch i fucking hate her. she has this old ass dog she just leaves tied to a tree all day and night. I got her to start bringing it inside sometimes by raising a huge stink but she still leaves it tied up for hours and hours sometimes.

i tried telling the police because it's against state law to leave a dog tied up without water (it would kick over its bowl after 5 minutes everytime she tied it up)and it has no shade but they told me to contact animal services. animal services will not respond to me and i've been trying since before march, so before covid. they're just not interested.

she has it tied up on this shitty wire thing, it's like braided metal with a plastic coating? anyway the dog has wrapped itelf around the tree with the wire several times and got stuck. i don't know what the fuck to do. i cant help it because its vicious as fuck and she just ignores it. i can't go up to her door and tell her because she ties the dog at the front of the house and i'm scaed it would break free and attack me. so i have to make a bunch of noise out my window so this dumb bitch will come and rescue her dog. which makes me paranoid so now i'm always checking this dog hasn't accidentally hanged itself.

The thing is she ties it up right under my bedroom window and it just woke me up freaking out. she waddles her fat ass out after 10+ mins to bring it in. I flung the window open and told her im calling the cops and that she's a selfish bitch. i fucking HATE having shit with neighbours but i hate seeing this dog neglected right outside my fucking window.

I don't think you are too old to go back to school, there are numerous people going back to college in their thirties, forties and fifties.

However, try doing some research or talk to a radiologist before choosing your specialisation. Automation is said to replace a bunch of jobs, including radiology. I know some experts state that radiologists will still be needed, but to what capacity, I don't know. You might be another surplus on the market when you finish your studies, so be careful.

I think my friend is a narc, retarded or obnoxious but they are annoying. They are an alcoholic and when they get drunk the entire night turns into them dominating the conversation with the same repeated stories from their "wild" youth. Doesn't matter who else is present and if we've all had the exact same conversation before about their past they always just want to talk about themselves. They're about 4 years older than me and in their 30s. I'll be turning 30 this year and with all the time in quarantine I've been reflecting over my past with myself. I've even shared a few, literally a few, stories with my friend thinking hey they never fuck about their life maybe they'd like to hear about me? No! The last two weekends I can admit more than usual for me I spoke about my past but I always try to do it in a lighthearted manner since I'm aware people can easily become bored with stories they're not in. I don't know. Feels like shit though I remember when my friend was turning 30 they basically spent the year going off the rails and making sure their 20s went out with a bang. I even arranged a trip to Dublin for it since they were crying about their parents not giving a fuck or doing anything. My last year of my 20s has fucking sucked due to covid and I'm not even expecting anyone to even remember it's my 30th and to do anything because of the state of the world but to get knocked back for even talking about my life. Just makes me feel like a piece of shit that one of my closest friends doesn't want to know shit about me. I'm basically only good for adding value to their life.

We're from a different culture and I'm supposed to take care of her and let her live with me forever but she makes me miserable. It's hard to meet anyone because of her, as she will always demand to come along wherever I go (she doesn't drive) and goes batshit if I try to stay somewhere overnight. We're immigrants and she doesn't speak English so I know she gets irritated being in the American suburbs but I've offered to get her an apartment in the capital of our home country but she refuses to consider it. I don't know what to do as whenever I ask her what she wants she just starts silently crying and saying she despises me and my father.

I just ordered a vaginal dilator set because every sex toy I own has become too sore to insert. The set that I bought consists of three silicone rods that are barely bigger than fucking pencils. I was abused as a kid, I know it's vaginismus related to that but I'm in a cycle where I make so much progress only to return to this point again.

My last bf had a fetish for fisting and despite knowing my issues he would pressure me to try and fulfill that kink for him?? I was at a point where I could comfortably take a small penis and the guy couldn't even appreciate normal sex. Now I'm back to pencil sized dilators again. I hate this cycle.

I love my natural hair but I am just so exhausted from having to tackle it every day. Thinking about shaving it all off since it is a little damaged from all the sjw danger hair dying. My hesitation rests in no longer having a big afro and the length of time it will take to grow back to it's current length. I love black hair I really do but this is such a chore without being able to go to beauty salons.

I'm pretty muscular for a woman so I'm also worried about reading as male to others without my long hair. The pressure of always looking good as a black woman is so annoying I swear to god

Anyone 20 and younger won't understand this, but I miss when the internet was almost a secret club of sorts. Being almost 24, I grew up on the cusp of the internet being widespread and easily accessible on phones and up until highschool, the only way to do shit on the internet was to literally go on a desktop computer and dedicate time to it. I miss mentioning things like addictinggames and omegle and the “cursed blue eyed girl” to my classmates and them not knowing wtf I was talking about. I miss when only a handful of students , even from different groups/cliques, knew about a certain video on youtube, or game, or sites to illegally download movies. The internet used to feel like a separate world from real life and now everyone knows about everything and there's so much of it that consequently nothing  feels exciting.

I don't know…I just feel like I lost my grip in art, it's not that I forgot all of my fundies. But when I picked up a pen or anything to draw, the feeling's not there anymore and the emptiness just grew bigger and bigger every day.
I choose to study a different major that doesn't revolve around art because the art education scene in my country is very limited. Everyone seems to settle with being a designer because it's the only way to make money here using ''art''.
I always thought I could balance my time between art and uni work but sometimes uni work can be too much and I can't even draw properly.

i'm 20 and started using the internet at age 8 lol and as fucked up as it is, i was barely 11 when i would get deep into the chan boards, random outdated but still very populated chat rooms etc so i definitely feel all of this. up until about 2015 there were shreds of the "old internet" left over, now there's almost nothing. all my fav illegal movie sites are long gone and all the weird hard to find chatrooms are non existent, the internet is gone now (but lolcow helps a bit)
i don't know if it's cringy or not but i'm so nostalgic for the way being online used to be, i never imagined it would all die out but it turns out only pretty much 2 generations ever got to "experience" that era and nobody else will ever know (or maybe 3? because older people who used it in the 2000s.. anywho)

When I was in 6th grade I stumbled upon some CP pictures that my older brother had downloaded onto the family computer. The way my parents handled it was very poor. All that was done was a little bit of counseling for my brother. Not long enough for it to provide any actual help. I’m suppose to believe that he is a changed person and that he’s a good person, in fact, he always has been a good person. But good people don’t do anything like he did and he has done. I’m the one that’s a piece of shit for thinking my brother is scum. Do people that look into shit like that even change? I’ve heard conflicting things. I know it has been many years later, but I’ve only began to really deal with it emotionally. They excuse it. “He was molested as a kid.” Okay, but so was my mom and so was I and we both didn’t do any of those things so being molested is an excuse when the reality is that he is continuing the cycle of abuse by even going down that route. The fact that he is 31 and is dating a girl that’s 20 and that he also has friends that are fresh out of high school makes me feel skeptical about him. How does a grown ass dude have friends that are so young? Tf? Why would you even want friends that young?

Sorry, I just don’t know how to feel. My parents make me feel like I’m wrong for thinking poorly of him, but (again) I don’t know if people that do that actually change for the good?

Last night I saw a badger get killed by a car, right in front of me and I couldn’t have done anything to help.
Me and my bf were driving back home from a day trip, around 11 pm, on a shitty two lane rural road, when we saw something we thought was a dog laying in the middle of the road, clearly hit by a car. My bf stopped and got out to check if it was still alive and it turned out to be a large badger, indeed still alive. He had a wound on his back and was bleeding from the mouth, but he was still trying hard to breathe and move his legs, so we couldn’t just leave him there to die. We wanted to move our car and turn on the hazard lights to shield the badger from the oncoming traffic, but there was not enough time for that, as there were cars coming from the opposite lane pretty fast.
So my bf is standing on the roadside waving at the cars, trying to get them to slow down and drive around the badger, while I’m frantically searching for a phone number to call the local police station (in my country, when you find a wounded wild animal you’re supposed to call a non-emergency line and inform the police, so they can contact people qualified to deal with a situation like this, usually a designated local veterinarian and/or a person from the hunters association).Three cars slow down and pass us safely, but then, right when I’m in the middle of dialing the number, fourth car comes, ignores my bf and HITS THE BADGER, full speed. Bf starts cursing, jumps back in the car and follows the guy, flashing his headlights, signaling him to stop, while I’m standing on the road bawling my eyes out, completely fucking useless.
The other driver actually stopped and was very apologetic, claiming he didn’t see my bf or the badger laying there (clearly didn’t pay attention to the fucking road but ok). In the end he even helped us carry him off the road so he wouldn’t get run over by any more cars, which was all we could have done at this point, as he was obviously dead.
Sorry if this was long and rambling, I guess I had to write this whole ordeal out to take it off my mind. I know this was “just” a badger, but the way he was struggling and the sound the car made when it struck him… I don’t know, it just hit me really hard and I’m still not over it. Especially since this was the first time I’ve ever watched a beautiful wild animal die, let alone in such a senseless way, and I know there might’ve been a chance to save him.

My last relationship left me insecure because he was cold towards me when I tried to give him affection. My current bf is great and he loves me but he is not the touchy feely, lovey dovey type and I am. That’s perfectly okay but my insecurities are making me need constant affection and validation from him and I hate how annoying and needy I’m being. I’ve figured out his love language is “acts of service” and he shows it through that but I can’t stop myself from feeling down when he doesn’t love me the way that I want and sometimes I feel like he doesn’t love me or want me around. It’s really silly and I want to stop feeling like this

Trust your gut instincts anon. He doesn't sound good to me either. I dated a 35 year old at 19 (Yes I am a dumbass). Your brother, at worst, is predatory, at best, extremely emotionally immature. CP means he's either into it sexually or found it funny; some degree of sociopathy. Either way, mental issues going on there. One could grow out of it, but there would be no way of knowing, he could also be better at hiding it. Combine that with a girl fresh out of high school when he's been on his own 10 years, equivalent to half his girlfriend's life on earth, you have a functioning fucking brain for noticing predatory behavior.

I can relate anon. Sorry to "CoMMuNiCAtION" you, but perhaps voice you would like him to make an effort to be more physically affectionate. He probably can't force it to the degree you would like, but knowing he's trying is the important part. Also consider your needs in a relationship. Compatibility of affectionate displays are a valid reason to end a relationship. I grew up in a narcissistic household, so when I'm not being love bombed by a potential partner, I feel like they aren't really interested. I didn't get touched as a kid either, and no siblings, so I am exceptionally physically clingy. Perhaps there is an anxiety lurking from earlier experiences.

My bridezilla friend has been driving me nuts with making her wedding plans work. Despite switching to courthouse eloping due to covid (which I and a few others aren't invited to), and wants a fancy dinner afterward (where I & others are invited to but we pay for ourselves), she still wants a full shebang wedding next year just to have a ceremony too. I'm in the bridal party so I'm stuck.

A few of our friends said they don't want to go to the dinner, so I asked her if it was okay to bring a plus one since they weren't going. She totally just said no cause "she doesn't know who I'm bringing." Bitch, what the fuck? I don't know some of the people she's inviting to this dinner but I'm p sure she'd be offended if I said I wasn't going for that reason. It's not like she's paying for us, so. I feel like doing something petty and setting up a separate reservation for me and the plus one nearby so we can 'be there' but it's technically my separate reservation that she doesn't get a say in.

I don't feel like she values my feelings as a friend, she's done fucked up shit to me recently that kind of proves she doesn't really give a rat's ass about my life. It's rubbed me in such a wrong way that I feel like making an excuse to not go at all.
Especially if I have to Groundhog Day this shit next year regardless. I wish people who throw weddings and want people to devote multiple days of their time realize that it's as much a gift from their friends to do this for them as it is an 'honor' to participate.

The dinner seems like it would be like a reception, so it makes perfect sense why she wouldn't want you to invite a friend. A wedding is something that's shared with family and friends, so why would you want a stranger there? It literally doesn't matter who you know there tbh

And if she hasn't been a good friend to you recently, then why are you still apart of the bridal party? You should honestly either try to resolve your issues or cut her out instead of trying to make the dinner about you because she won't let you invite a stranger.

My experience with men that ghosted me early on is: you don’t know what’s going on in their life. Maybe they had an old ex resurface. Maybe they were going on mutlple dates and decided to prioritise one person. Maybe they decided they don’t like you that much. Maybe they felt like you moved on too fast. Who knows.

>gf: oh wow big deal if you're the worlds most perfect bf ever
>scrote: haha what if i put this as my fb header pic
Annoying. Anyways the thing that bugged me the most was this one post of his where he pondered over how hilarious it was to see people recieve nudes in public as he described seeing a woman open a dickpic in a mall and was so shocked that she dropped her phone. Some woman commented something like 'ugh yes unwanted dic pix are so gross' and he replied 'how do you it was unwanted?' like, you fucking retard, what else could it be? He was so obnoxious. He also had a habit of compartmentalizing women based on internet tropes like 'egirls' 'art hoes' 'normie women' and described his gf as an arthoe. Dyed his hair a bad orange which clashed horribly with his skintone the last time I checked up on him which was a half a year ago.

Eh, yes and no. Weddings are usually allowed a plus one and even if it were a true reception, it's unusual because the couple isn't paying for their guest's meals so it really shouldn't matter in this case as they're not paying for anyone who they don't know.

I don't think i've ever told anyone about this, because i only recently realised it was wrong. I've had asthma since i was a small child. my mom would rarely pick up my inhalers because it was an inconvenience for her. i couldn't go and pick them up when i was a child, because the pharmacy was like 3 miles from our house and it was a dangerous walk. she would come home from work and say stuff like 'this is my time to relax now, and the last thing i want to do is waste any of my time on you.' at the time i didn't think denying me my inhalers was that bad, since she is in charge and it's her right to do whatever she wants. now i realise how fucked up that was, and how i could have easily died. my symptoms were worse because of the lack of inhalers btw, but it never got to an emergency level.

I always decide to get new hobbies but I'm too lazy. And it hit me today that this has been my life for YEARS. My entire existence consists of planning a shitton of things and then daydream about them and never carry out anything. I am a failure. I really want to cut myself even though I haven't done it in years

i met this guy through a whatsapp group (dont know him in real life) and after a while we started chatting in private. we had so much in common in terms of interests. after a while he started being flirty and saying shit like "you're so cute"/"i wish we had met before corona so we could spend time together"/"i have nobody to cuddle with" etc. we started talking about meeting in real life jsut to talk, like not only us but with a few other people.
BUT AS SOON AS WE ACTUALLY START PLANNING SHIT, he started sounding uninterested. we were supposed to meet today but the guy cancelled 4 hours prior. this happened 2 times before too - i suggest a date and he just says shit like he doesn't know if he'll be busy so can't say 100% yes. he also hasn't been talking to me as much as he used to. hell, he doesn't even message me unless i do first - and i stopped doing that since he doesn't seem as enthusiastic as he was when we first started talking.

today i also saw that he liked a meme on instagram that was about DMing 8 people at the same time. I feel like such a dumb bitch for emotionally investing in him. He isn't even cute enough to be a fuckboy, i think he just dms everyone to get a reaction and some girl hotter than me responded back so now he's done with me.
fuck, maybe im just overanalysing.

i just went through a break up and am about to start a new chapter in my life, so it's probably related, but i've been questioning everything in my life.

what's happiness? where do i want to be in the future? is the path i'm taking the right one?

i used to childishly think happiness lied in being in a huge city, having access to all the cool stuff i wanted to consume (clothes, food, exotic stuff, etc). hell, i imagined happiness being all the way abroad, no questions asked.

however my ex loves his home, which is the countryside with famous touristic spots, and most of all, loves his family, his culture. he sees his future at home, not in a big city or abroad. at first i thought he was foolish, the countryside's boring, i can't wait to move to the capital, yadda yadda.

but i progressively understood what he felt. i don't have all of that. i don't have a home where the generations before me were born, and for all of my life, up until very recently, my only family was my mom. then, i had no friends. so maybe i overcompensated by daydreaming about other places, about things i couldn't get my hands on, things that had nothing to do with the ordinary for me.

i know i have to go; the one thing i feel like doing in life right now is in the biggest city in this country. but after that…do i want to move to the even bigger city of my dreams?

not gonna lie, all i wish for rn is to settle and create strong bonds with a large group of people. but i keep moving. it's so frustrating.

i don't know where i'll be in the future so i'm not gonna quit everything in under 5 minutes just to be faced with the consequences and unable to fix anything for a whole year…but i wish this feeling could be fixed.

I'm about to graduate next month and just realized that I missed the deadline for a project by 5 fucking days.
We were supposed to test some kind of online program, upload our result and then later on put together a portfolio, a part of it being that project. Should I just include it into the portfolio and then act dumb if they question why I didn't upload it online? Or should I email the professor and admit to it, begging her to be leniant because otherwise I can't graduate? But what if she says no?
We're nearly 300 students in that class, so keeping count is more difficult, plus technical difficulties could always happen (as an excuse for why they didn't get mine) and the thought of her saying no scares me to death, but on the other hand isn't being honest always the best options?

I want to improve my life so bad. Just wish I had that inspiring drive to actually implement permanent changes . I know if I make an effort towards my goals I will be infinitely happier, but I just…… don’t. It’s actually laughable, most of the time I feel like I’m having an out of body experience where my mind is screaming ‘JUST DO IT!! DO SOMETHING!’ and my body is just limp. It’s so so stupid, stupid procrastination, stupid bad attention span, and stupid fear of failure.

Ive had a history of mental health issues that might be under control now (and Im still getting help with it) This history has made me quit or ruin all education Ive attended since I started high school. In total 5 wasted years and almost another if I would have been able to.

This fall Im going to do a little soft reboot before starting University the year after that (hopefully). However I am so scared that I'll ruin everything again and that my grades wont be good enough to get into the studies I want to. Or that they ruin the Bachelor I want to take.

I know with my new medication that it will be a lot easier to prevent relapse, but I still cant stop being scared. Last fall I had to quit school so I could get better, so I havent done anything since then. So ever since I got confirmation that I've gotten into my study, Ive had this nagging feeling in the back of my mind that I'll fuck up everything again.

Im going to talk to my therapist about it, but I just needed to vent. When people say they dont want to be "normal" they mean it in a positive way. But for many people, wanting to be normal just entails being able to have a job. My personality can be exciting, let my life be normal.

I don't really know what's going on but I'm starting to get really annoyed with a lot of my friends and its beginning to dawn on me that perhaps it's just ME being the bad friend??

I don't know what I'm doing wrong but in each friend group I'm in I'm always the odd one out. One has an SO in our friend group and they CONSTANTLY ignore my comments over theirs and gets extremely jealous if they're not paying attention to them. It doesn't seem to be just me either, its with everyone but since we're such a tight knit group its definitely more noticeable and its beginning to wear on me to the point where I don't want to talk to them much anymore because I hate being ignored.
Same in my other group, they're not SOs but its two friends that I'm close with and yet am constantly acknowledged last or just overlooked completely and it hurts.

Part of me is trying to convince myself that I just have some unfortunate friends but the other half is just finding it easier to realize that maybe its just me, maybe I'm so unbearable that they just prefer to keep me along out of pity or something but I just hate feeling like this, my life has been such a shitshow that I'm ready to just distance myself completely because at least I'm willingly ignoring than being flatout ignored.

Not to discount your feelings anon but it doesn’t hurt them when it’s done early. There’s bigger fish to fry like when idiots clip their pitbull’s ears for absolutely no reason. In showing some breeds need to have tipped ears and if it’s done as a puppy there’s absolutely no pain or discomfort as the ears are usually still flopped at that point and you are not stressing or damaging the ear by gluing/taping. Now if it’s a grown dog whose ears were allowed to stand up, that’s cruel. The muscles have already fully formed and I imagine it’s very uncomfortable for the dog

Reading an anons post here about neglected children I was halfway through typing a long ass sperg about how 'my mom wasn't neglectful tard!' But I'm wondering if that was a little true in my case? I mean, mostly because my mom had no knowledge about the internet so she didn't know what I was doing except watching anime and playing dress up. She didn't, and still doesn't, have much of an interest in my life. Doesn't know the name of the uni I'm in, doesn't know my friends' names, what has been going on in my life etc. But I still don't think she is neglectful because she really does love me a lot and me and my sister are the most important to her so how can she neglect us?
I remember as a kid when I told her my personal religious tutor molests me and she just gave him a stern talking to and still made him teach me, which I kind of resent her for because it didn't stop him from having his hands under my pants. And when I was a young teen and was talking to pedos online and sending them videos, which made me uncomfortable, I didn't tell my mom because I thought it wasn't anything serious, just like before. I don't know where I'm going with this, just writing down my thoughts I guess. I do love my mother a lot. She did all she could as a single mom living in a deeply backwards country, I just have some confusing feelings.

I'm a dumb bitch and decided to look at what kind of porn my boyfriend has on his computer and now I'm confused. He has claimed the whole time we've been dating that he only likes thicc/chubby girls and that skinny women aren't attractive to him at all. He even has begged me not to lose weight because he didn't want to lose attraction to me if I became thin. Then I see on his computer that the only kind of women he masturbates to are thin ones,not a single one that's even remotely close to being "thicc." I just am confused as to why he would claim his disgust for thin women so much but that's all he jerks off to. I wouldnt even had cared if he found thin women attractive because even I think they are and I told him this before. Well I guess I'll continue to lose weight again because it's apparent it wouldn't matter regardless.

Secondly, thicc and fat women who stylize themselves and who are confident get men these days. Women are the choosers, don't let men talk you into getting it twisted, they are the beggars and we are the prize. You can pull a man who genuinely thinks you're attractive and likes women who look like you.

Why is this acceptable? So she should have taken this shit seriously if she found disturbing porn, but since it's only fantasies about women who look nothing like her, she should be happy? Bad news: the only thing that separates a man from his fantasy is lack of opportunity. If he thought he could get skinny models he'd be out doing it.

I've been trying to move my boyfriend into a consumerist-minimalistic line of thinking. He's been depressed lately about being in his late 30s and not finding success with writing. He's really good at it and he's had articles in magazines, but the industry is tough to make a decent living off of. He really wants to finally get a novel published but everything bad keeps happening. I'm naturally unambitious because I've found contentment with striving to be a good person and indulging in life's pleasures (ie reparations for this painful existence lol), but understandably he's discontent with just that. We've had a few talks and I try to lead by example but it's slow progress.

I don't know how to express these thoughts without sounding like I'm asking him to give up on his dreams! I just want to make him content with himself. Suggestions welcome, anon-chans.

I don't know how else to describe it. He feels like he needs to "give" or leave a mark in the world, I want him to write because he wants to (ie consume pleasure). He wants something grand in life, I want him to live simply.

Exactly it, I feel like he needs to be "set free" from his ambitions. I keep reminding him that life isn't one-track and he can change it at any time, and it'll be okay because he's still young. I think it cheers him up a little every time so I'll keep at it. Thanks for your thoughts!

He's on his third, iirc. The first one was self-published, the second is in revision. He's got other short stories and stuff which got more success since they appeal to magazines. Recently he got cut a check for this story for $200, yes I'm humblebragging cause I adore him!

>he wants something grand in life

Not to insult your little bitch, but being a novelist is the most counterproductive way to lead a "grand" life. Most authors don't wind up famous until they're dead if their works get any attention at all. I'm sure many authors would love to be the next Rowling but that isn't going to be how it pans out for the majority. Until he proves it he's no more special than any other writer out there with the same struggles he has.

He needs a reality check so you're not suffering and bringing down your quality of life. You need a man who can hold and carry his own. Why doesn't he get a real job in writing that's not freelance? There's technical writing, journalism, underwriting, grants, etc.
He's not going to gain confidence by people indulging in his slump. He'll be confident when he starts making money using his talents, maybe not in the way he originally wanted, but too bad. That's reality.

I recently started taking antibiotics and lo and behold, my pussy became a cottage cheese factory overnight. I'm just in awe because of all of the stuff that's coming out of me. It's not all that itchy unless I start scratching it, so at least that's good. Tonight I'm gonna start inserting vaginal pills, using a antifungal cream and eating yogurt so I am pretty confident I should be able to fix it fairly easily. Tho I fucking hate the long ass applicator that comes with the pills, it feels like… A huge invasion of privacy? If that makes sense? It's just so freaky because you basically have to shove a straw inside of you. I can handle dick and fingers just fine, but for whatever reason that pencil thin piece of plastic is the bane of my existence.
Well, lesson learned, the next time I'm just gonna ask my doctor for some flucazone (I think that's how it's called, honestly I can't be arsed to check, but it's basically an antifungal pill you take orally and prevents you from getting a yeast infction) so I don't have to deal with the devil's stick again.

>>587158 He has invested so much time into making it big, he probably feels ashamed and doesn't want to "give up". I've been there.

If you want to help him out, support the work that is actually meaningful to him (presumably novels?, you know the one!).

He doesn't have to spend time writing dumb stuff just to impress others or network. Unless you enjoy the process or the result, never do it unless it pays the bills.

That's the whole point of art. He spends too much time writing sht he doesn't enjoy in any way shape or form. He can be happier with his work and life if he does it for himself. Encourage that.

I don't know if he is making his money exclusively from freelance writing but if he is not happy with the process, he should just find a non creative job and do it on the side. No shame on that and it's very liberating.

I'd never in a million years remember, unfortunately. The woman who told me literally has a background in medicine and actually understands how organs function. I didn't understand more than half of what she told me because I'm completely unfamiliar with the terminology, but her overall point was that diabetes is reversible because of how organs work.

From what I recall, the person who reversed their type 1 diabetes also did the keto diet. Tbh cutting out grains, dairy, sugar and soy, as well as managing stress will do wonders for pretty much any health condition, often to the point of curing it or going into remission.

I'm not concerned about that though since I don't care what I'll have 20 years down the line, I'm salty that I don't have my family with me. All the locals are rich as fuck and travel all the time, buy big houses and give their kids everything they want, but those kids are so fucking useless despite having an amazing passport, money to do whatever they like, they come from a country with a great reputation and are respected just for this reason, they speak the local language much better than I ever will, and they still manage to whine and whine about how hard their life is, it drives me up the fucking wall.

Especially when it's young men doing this, you have all these opportunities and people have spent so much on you growing up and all you do is take and take and consoom video games, still manage to look like shit and give nothing back, and then you have the neck to complain how your life has no purpose and how you can't get laid/can't get a gf when lord knows that even if you did, you'd pay her no mind and treat her like garbage.
So not only do you consume resources some poor women in rural Ukraine would kill to have and could do so much with, you actively shit up other people's lives too by making them miserable and then you wonder why your life has no purpose when all you do is spend on yourself and your consumerist hobbies, then get upset that nothing fills the gaping void in your sad existence.

Imagine how much better off we'd be as a species if these wastes of space managed to donate even a third of their income to a local environmental charity, consume less, and actually went to volunteer somewhere instead of showing their unfortunate dick to strangers online and sitting indoors all day.

Jfc I'm so sorry. My situation was never so bad that I was literally homeless, but I somewhat feel your pain. My bf and I shared a 200 sqft "studio" for two years with no kitchen, no shower, no parking, and washer/dryers that were constantly broken. I would literally spend up to 40 minutes trying to find parking. The building had showers, but they were shared with everyone else on the floor. The building was full of ants. We were paying almost a grand a month for this place.

Before that, I lived in what was basically a shed for a year on my own. It was like 5x10 ft and could only fit my clothes and a bed. It wasn't insulated and leaked so badly whenever it rained that I'd have to come crash in the living room of the people renting it to me.

All the while, I'd try to look for better options, but they were about as limited as yours. Nothing available was typically much better than my current situation. You'd find somewhere that was bigger and had like, an actual bathroom, but still no kitchen and no parking, plus it was $400 more expensive. Rental companies also loooove to take your money for applications, and then the place is conveniently rented to someone else two hours later.

Thankfully, we got lucky that a friend of ours bought a property in a nearby city and is letting us rent a unit for dirt cheap. The move was so worth it. I know things will get better for you, too. I hope it's sooner rather than later.

I really love my sister, but she cannot think for herself. She's honestly such a sheep, like any time we have a debate on something, either serious or casual, she rarely gives her own opinion, like it's so obvious she's parroting whatever she's read on Twitter or whatever. She has this annoying habit of stating something so confidently and smugly, then asking her boyfriend or friend "it's true right?" asking for approval or to see if she's correct, lol it's pathetic. And she's way too much of a people pleaser, she just cannot say no to anybody even if she's constantly complaining about how much she hates them. For example she puts way too much time and effort for this one horrible friend she always bitches about, any time I say to her to just stand up for herself she's like nah I don't want her to think bad about me. What do I expect from an Instagram selfie addict though. It literally takes her two hours to post something because she freaks out about her right filter and the exact wording of the post and asks me a million questions about which hashtags to use sigh

I use natural dye powders to color my hair and last night I accidentally used too much indigo, I think. My hair turned out this dark, muted shade of red. My natural hair was already brunette so it wouldn't have taken much. It's disappointing to do all that work and wait just to come out with a mediocre result. I wanted vibrant hair, and instead I look mousey. Dare I say, matronly.
The big sad is that I wanted to record myself in years doing something tonight, but I'll have to do it while pretending like I think I look my best when I really don't.
Why wasn't I just brave and added the bright color I wanted without caring if it came out too bright? I could've just darkened it. God I'm stupid.

Tbh I wouldn't write her off immediately. She's clearly a mess but that doesn't necessarily mean she isn't redeemable. The copy catting thing is probably because she admires you and doesn't necessarily realize that this is something that makes you uncomfortable. Hell, she may not even realize she's doing it at all. It's actually pretty common to mimic the traits of others without meaning to. Sometimes that just happens after you spend a lot of time around someone.

Honestly, I think people like this actually really need female friends. Women sometimes exhibit pickme trad behaviors because they assume that it's only men who want anything to do with them. It seems really common of pickme women to report feeling like they didn't didn't fit in with other women, or that other women didn't like them, growing up. It's really easy to judge someone for that, but it is actually coming from a place of hurt.

If all of these traits are something you don't think you'll be able to look past, don't befriend her. Alternatively, if she has already shown signs of being rude and/or abusive toward you, don't befriend her.

I am extremely self-conscious about having like almost no definitive jawline whatsoever, and I feel like this just gets worse as I get older and my skin looses elasticity. I don't really know if it's like, a bunch of loose skin or fat under my chin, but I feel like it almost looks like my face belongs on someone else's body. I'm pretty skinny but my face looks fat, almost? I'm probably not describing any of this well, but the bottom line is I hate my chin and jawline.

Being at home with family because of the pandemic is really starting to get on my nerves. I know that there are people at home with actual abusive family members and that my situation is much, much better in comparison, but I am so tired and just need to rant. I'm the youngest and my mom and my brother pretty much still treat me like a child even though I'm twenty-two years old. My dad doesn't live at home because he's been married to his job since I was a kid and has checked out from being a father/husband (something my mom complains about a lot), so my brother (who's a lot older than me) has kind of stepped in as the "male figure of the house" role.

Them treating me like a child isn't the worst thing in the world, but it's the fact that they expect me to be the most normal, bland person ever or else they infantilize me. All they do is sit around the table and talk about politics, work, and their social lives. While they were talking about Chinese politics and criticizing the Chinese government, I stepped in to talk about a friend I have who has bought in pretty hard to Chinese propaganda. I guess it turned into a bit of a rant, but when I finished my brother simply responded "Okay anon, I think we get it." And then they just discredited my story and kept talking. Like, way to make me feel like my opinion is completely worthless in conversation. I don't have a problem with just checking out and not participating in family talks, but then when I do that my mom guilttrips me about how hard she tries to make our family perfect with an absent father and how I'm being ungrateful because I don't care about our family. I literally can't win. To be honest, I like being on my own so much that I'd rather live by myself right now than be with my family. I used to feel guilty about that because I felt like my mom and my brother do their best to provide for me, but after realizing that they also treat me like I'm stupid and am not allowed to have an opinion I realize why I feel that way now. At least when I'm living alone I can have interests and opinions without having someone laugh it off like I'm a kid talking about show and tell.

TW disordered eating and restriction

I’ve struggled with disordered eating before but I don’t have and have never had anorexia. This past week I have been on a health kick to finally take control of my weight again but I can feel myself starting to restrict again. These past couple days I’ve only been letting myself eat 1000 calories because I get super anxious otherwise.

I was at healthy weight once before but I only did that by legitimately starving myself like less than 700 cals a day or no food at all.

Any other overweight anons struggle with counting calories like this or am I being a crybaby?

He's Vomiting multiple times a day constantly confused, and talks in word salad most of the time, I'm pretty sure he has alcohol induced dementia, he can barely do anything for himself and it is killing me watching someone I love disappear, sometimes I get angry with him because he won'teat but it's like getting mad with a child, you just can't. Spent the past few weeks trying to get help from doctors and the rehab clinic but it's like going on a wild goose chase. The worst thing is no one but me knows.

I wish my parents were invested in me growing up. They were good parents, they raised me in a safe and stable environment. They didn't hit me or verbally abuse me, but my mom specifically just wasn't invested. Never asked about school, showed concerns over my grades, didn't bother to ask why I never showered, played games on the internet all day, had no friends. I just got yelled at for not doing enough chores or having an "attitude" . They also Didn't realize that putting me in a school with rich kids when my allowance was 5 dollars a week and I had no opportunity to get a job was just shitty.

I can feel the dislike my bf family has for me and it's making me more and more anxious. I feel like they are still peeved he broke up with his last long term gf who was very beautiful and successful in her small business. Now he's with this fat toad who only works part time due to mental health issues kek. They will even mention her (and her looks!!!!!) while I am in the same room. It makes seeing them so daunting which makes me flake on events which makes them hate me more.

I don't want to go out of my way to please them. I haven't done anything wrong to them. My boyfriend has told me they complained about my lack of career, not wanting babies, not particularly caring about a wedding… All things my boyfriend is completely fine with. He stands up for me and doesn't make me feel guilty for flaking on events but still.

I'm trying to get a doctor out to see him asap but it's really hard atm with covid, they just prescribed him b vitamins, I think i'm just going to get him to a&e but I can't drive and idk if you call an ambulance for this sort of thing (i'm in the UK) I rang the emergency number tonight they just sent an urgent letter to his gp, he definitely needs professional care. It might sound ridiculous but I've never been in a situation with a sick person, it's all completely new to me.

Also I know it's going to sound like a cliche but he really isn't a bad drunk, I know some alcoholics can be awful to be around but he just gets drunk and sleeps it off, hid it VERY well though always open about it with me. I feel like because he was so functional I just brushed it off which is bad of me tbh. He was trying to get into rehab before the pandemic but then the past few months he's gone downhill so suddenly i'm just lost with it all. Thanks for the advice guys.

If you're in the UK the best thing to do in this situation is take him to see his GP. I had to do the same when my mother when she decided to stop being an alcoholic.

The issue is why I started ghosting her is because right a day before she started trying to be a knock-off version of me, our last conversation was her asking about one of my 'quirks'. I explained the reason behind them and right after that she said that now 'she knows the secret of my cuteness and she is going to steal it'. And literally started doing that thing. And keeps doing. Very embarrassing of 27yo obese woman who also does rude and immature things that I've done when i was 15yo going through puberty. I was really patient towards her up until she started acting like a kid and started (and keeps doing that) trying to copy my dressing ups like in that /w/ thread and is literally trying to cut me off of bf's dad family side. Would also green-eye me all the time. All of her excuses on rude behavior would be her being 'shy' or 'muh mental illness' while I always hear her screaming on discord VC upstairs in VCs with 10+ people. Idk.
