About finding peace after a relationship with an abusive, pornsick scrote. It took a couple months where I was miserable and cried a lot, but eventually I was able to redirect myself toward positive activities instead of marinating in the bad feelings. I started to appreciate little pleasures and found it easier to let go of mental death spirals. Now I'm in a pretty healthy place and a lot more relaxed. Thanks to her advice, it was easier to accept that my emotions were normal and view the self hatred as an ego issue.

Really good advice for choosing a major/career path, esp about keeping things you like as a hobby

No. 764710

Does anyone know where I can find a post about how to dress for a job where you want to be taken seriously ? The anon was saying that you needed to look like you had power and that the most important was to look stricking so people could remember you. I'm not doing justice to her post but hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about. It was a very refreshing take imo !

Found this advice helpful for breaking bad habits/addictions from anon.

No. 776926

Disagree with this completely.

Don’t make a joke out of yourself with your clothing. I genuinely wonder if the person who wrote this has ever worked in an office outside of a minimum wage call center. Jacket in pic related barely qualifies as professional because of the cut and only looks good on the runway or a VERY certain type of woman. The issue is a lot of young women genuinely don’t know how to dress in a way which commands respect, because a lot of young women’s clothing (even “professional” brands like Loft, Ann Taylor, Express) ISN’T made to demand respect. Women in power come in all shapes and sizes, their attire just so. If you want respect, keep it tasteful. You don’t see men wearing 7” inseams into the office. You don’t see them wearing leather jackets either… unless you work for some weird start up in San Fran or something. You don’t have to wear ugly pleather mock blazers to command respect, and if you aren’t respected already this is the last thing you should be doing, kek.

This is the most believeable explanation to bots and karma farming. r/askreddit is the most notorious farm for these and I remember vividly a comment under one of commonly recurring questions linking to identical question from a year before, with identical answers but given by completely different users, they just copy-paste what's popular from the archive and get these sweet upvotes. Crazy, and kinda weird when you realize all the top comments (there) are just bots, not real people.
