I want tomorrow to be 2019 already!

I know we're so close and to be frank I don't have many plans for the new year but a couple of important things, but I want to start "fresh" again, y'know the feeling when it's a new year and you feel all pumped for things, even if for 2 or 3 weeks. I want that feeling! I also think it will help with my current diet (as in what I eat, not a diet exactly), I started it early December, so it's not like I'm waiting for the new year to start changing. I think it will give me an extra boost!

Anonymous 18318

Promised myself I'd get back to my old weight by my birthday (the 28th) after getting seriously fat the past couple of years but since last December I've only lost 7 lbs. I would have needed to lose 15 to fit in my old clothes, and even then I'd still be too fat for my liking.

Why am I such a disgusting, lazy pig? Really fucking hate myself right now.

I think I’m super fucking racist and I don’t know what to do. I genuinely don’t know if I’m just aware of shit or I’m becoming radicalised or like what. It’s fucking scary like. I keep catching myself saying and thinking things. Ironically did loads of charity work fighting racism when I was younger. What is do.

ahhh…i want to be pretty
i feel like i should be
my parents in their youth were gorgeous; dad's sort of wasted away thanks to booze but my mother is aging beautifully. people take her for 30~ all the time despite the woman pushing 55 and being somewhat heavyset.
i however, am an amalgamation of all their worst features, an awkward weight, and am considered to be a few years above my actual age. this kills me.

I feel kinda guilty but I really don't like hanging out or interacting with most of my family - particularly my mum. She isn't abusive or anything and I can tell she tries her best most of the time but I just cringe whenever I interact with her which usually leads to bare minimum conversations. Same with her partner of 10 years and my brothers. I think because I was closer to my dad as a kid and my mum was always stressed out/angry when they split up I didn't know how to talk to her and my dad was away so I was kinda isolated from the both of them.

It's a shame cos my brothers and her partner are really cold to her a lot of the time and flat out inept. (Nobody in the family except me got her a gift on her 50th birthday which she was really excited for, ended up calling me in tears.) I stay an hour and a half away for uni and I call every few weeks/visit two or three times a year which I'm perfectly happy with. She's dropped the idea of selling her house and moving closer to me a few times or coming up to stay for several nights and honestly it's my worst nightmare. Lmao why am I so terrible

As long as you aren't being an asshole towards people you have racist thoughts about just because they're of a different race or ethnicity than you (e.g. talking behinds their backs in a racist way or spitting into their food because you "don't like their people"), I don't think you need to worry about it.

Don't know why that anon is lying to you, that behavior is fucking disgusting. Maybe educate yourself and avoid sites online that reenforce this behavior.
I consume a lot of foreign media/literature/art and it helps me humanize people from all cultures.

Anonymous 18351

Depends what you mean by 'super fucking racist', what standard are you applying there? Are you going by the old definition of racism or the newer definition that recognizes micro-aggressions and the like?

If you want to reign back racial bias (or any group bias) I recommend remembering that people are individuals, and there is as much variation within groups as there is between groups. Every person is an individual that stands on their individual dignity.

Thanks for your mature and empathetic response. I wouldn’t be an asshole to somebody based on it no, that’s not the way I conduct myself.

I’ve been brought up in a way where I have “consumed” different cultures and backgrounds, especially through travelling. I understand the assumption you’ve made here but I had a very fortunate upbringing where I could meet and experience a lot of different things. I’m not an uneducated hick if that’s where your basing this response. I agree about the websites, I’m going to stop using twitter and the like.

Thank you for this well thought response. I’m unsure, I think I’m basing it off what people would currently regard as racism though. Not old time racism.

coming from someone who has worked on their internalized biases, what helped me was to try and catch myself every time i would think or say something bigoted, and then remind myself of what was actually true ie if i had a thought about how someone i knew was probably something stereotypical based on their race/gender/whatever i would stop myself and make sure to remind to myself that that not all members of xyz group are stereotypes, and remind myself to focus on what i know of them as an individual, not a stereotype.

maybe that sounds obvious but it did work for me. it took a while for me but i found myself having those thoughts less and less, and it was much easier to look beyond whatever stereotypes i had internalized. idk if that's helpful. it's not ok to be racist/bigoted but you probably won't get anywhere by beating yourself up over it either, just be realistic and put serious effort into changing/challenging your views if you want to change.

Anonymous 18388

I feel like I’ve lost basic empathy for people, I no longer relate to them or enjoy their company. I really don’t know what happened or what’s wrong with me. It’s probabaly because I’m boring and can’t hold a decent conversation, or I probably just got more selfish and self-absobed.
I don’t want to know what it is to exist and be a real breathing human being anymore. All I look forward to is going to sleep and forgetting I exist, like how sad and pathetic is that? I just want to get over it and be normal like everyone else, but I’m paranoid, and in a very unhealthy way, is in I think people know what I’m doing in my privacy, and I can never know what that’s actually like. I feel like I’m just stuck in this constant cycle of failure and shame. It really sucks the life out of me. I already have the “1000 mile stare”, and I truly believe if this goes on I’ll be reduced to a shell of a human being.

Anonymous 18395

No problem. I went through my own scare a while ago. I grew up somewhere mayonnaise white (with some Italians) so my practical exposure to other groups was minimal. This actually didn’t lead to racism in itself, since I was exposed to the corrective measures of the social justice waves of the time by way of the internet. This kind of backfired on me, because by the time I had actual practical exposure to other groups and found that basically every culture has its ups and downs, I became afraid that my ‘failure’ to positively process every aspect of other cultures or ways of being meant something darker. I went through a phase where I had to beat back thoughts that felt almost intrusive every time I was directly confronted with someone (never manifested in my actual behavior save for maybe looking anxious during brief social interactions)- and the punchline is they only ‘went away’ when I stopped worrying about them so much. It was almost like a mild OCD, in my anxiety about impure thoughts I held them front and center.
Saying “everyone’s a little bit racist” is reductive, but honestly you can respect individuals on an individual basis while not giving every cultures ‘defaults’ a glowing review. I remember my blood running cold when an Indian friend of mine started going off about brown boys behaving in sexist ways, like, “Oh no I’m not supposed to hear/believe this”. Of course #notallmen, but she was speaking cathartically from her own experience and I wasn’t going to shut that down just to keep myself ‘pure’. I’ve since accepted that negative assessment is going to be a part of me, and as long as I stick to my basic principles and evaluate people as they behave individually I won’t be being terribly unfair.

I'm so tired of gender war bullshit. I just want a small bf to love and hide away from the world with.
I no longer want to fall into extremely biased generalizations born out of fear, while simultaneously proving myself and other women as different than what the other side makes biased generalizations about.
I might start actually limiting myself from sources that irritate the issue for me, since it's become addicting to immerse myself in man-hate then flip to /r9k/ to confirm my biases and get anxious and angry. Normfags aren't bothered by this nonsense for the most part and there's no reason for me to concern myself with it, either. It only upsets me and contributes nothing towards my ultimate goal.

He leaned forward to switch a song in the car and swerved so he got pulled over…i wonder if they detected any alcohol in his system…Either way, now we're late to to my immediate family's Christmas and I was really looking forward to it as I thought he might not come.

See, this is what I mean. I know men that are not like this in my life, and men with atypical tastes 100% exist. Just as I love weak little manlets there are men out there who love fat chicks and shit. My own male best friend wants a tall tough amazon.
There are many males like you describe, but also many who are not. Not all men are criminals despite most criminals being men.
I refuse to become a handmaiden of course, shit men deserve shit, but hating all men is equally as delusional. I want to recover and judge individuals.

I mean my real advice would be to not give a shit. Honestly you can't let a bunch of inconsiderate people with a garbage lifestyle that clashes with your own interfere with you and you being comfortable, including in college where you have to get work done and focus on your studies.

Truth be told, who gives a fuck if they think you are racist or not. In the end is it worth being miserable in your garbage living situation versus being happy while a fucking ignorant assholes want to play a race card against you because they can't act like grown human beings. You gotta learn at some point to not care about what EVERYONE thinks about you, you can't control their thoughts and in the end if they want to place the race card because you don't enjoy their lifestyle, they are truly ignorant and they are the core reason the world is in a shit state.

Other side of the coin is that I'm sure they won't give a shit and actually be more happy that you're gone since they keep snubbing you and the whole racist thing is an exaggeration.

From what I've seen of religious institutions, it's just a place for people (mostly men) with ruined lives to go and fool themselves about a better life on the other side. It's actually depressing.
I'd like to think I'm not that much of a defeatist.

And I don't have a positive view on religion either way. From what I've read of christian philosophy, it sounds like patriarchial bs written by frustrated, autistic men. Basically the medieval equivalent of r9k.

Try a hobby-based community if you don't want to hear about the life problems of other people. Most people aren't very interesting and the interesting people usually already have interesting friends.

Maybe you are looking at the past through rose-tinted glasses? Back then there weren't that many interesting stories either, it just seems that way because people don't bother remembering or saving all the boring posts on the internet.

It can be hard to find friends but there has got to be a handful of people who click with you somewhere. I personally dislike speaking to the majority of people out there but I managed to find a couple of like-minded people and only speak to them.

Anonymous 18560

I mean it would help if you dropped the whole arrogant attitude about shit you don't understand what so ever. I wouldn't want to be friends with you either because I can't stand people who act like you who have to talk down to men, and talk down to shit they don't understand and feel like they do. Anyone who groups people by an entire gender is a very small person who has yet to grow emotionally. It's one thing to have a preference over things but I can tell just by your tone you look down at a lot of things with disdain.

If you don't like spirituality, that's cool. But your handle on the christian faith is so pathetically narrow I wonder what "christian philosophy" you read that wasn't from some clickbait article.

Thanks for trying to help, but I'm not sure "go get indoctrinated into a religion" is the best advice.

I don't look down on all men, just those who indulge in escapism to hide from their problems, but disguise it as "spirituality". My uncle is like that. After he ruined his career, he became weirdly religious, and started preaching about living a modest life, and "worldly" things are meaningless. Meanwhile, his kids are growing up poor. It's so predictable, it feels two faced. Like he's in it for the comfort rather than faith.

Also, I don't see how you can't recognize the parallels between religious scholars rambling about the importance of an intact female hymen, "degeneracy", evils of modernity, "family values", and incels rambling about exactly the same topics, with the same arguments.

But I guess you're one of those "trad thots" I keep hearing about, keep sticking up for men who want to confine you to a kitchen, I'm sure they'll respect you so much for it.

Anonymous 18564

In the same boat, I'm hoping maybe I will finally have a tight-knit social circle of gal pals when I have kids some day and they're old enough to join sports and I can hang out with the other moms. To me that feels like the legit "adult world" and I'm in an in-between phase now of extended adolescence and being an actual adult. And if I miss the boat on that maybe I'll make friends with other old ladies when I'm crazy and shitting my pants in a nursing home where it's normal to yell old memes at the top of your lungs because everyone there is nuts.

Anonymous 18568

Same fam I was a childfree edgelord when I was a teenager and at the time thought for sure I'd always be one, but since getting older and hanging out with other people's kids I realized they are fun and not just Satan spawn. I'm lonely now but I'm looking forward to that "family life" phase of my life when it happens, and even though I spent my teenage years on dark corners of the internet and no one can relate to that IRL, just having kids the same age as yours is a good common denominator for making friends with other moms. And if that doesn't work and I'm still a social pariah around other women for being too weird, maybe when I'm an old lady it'll finally be my time to shine and I'll become the most popufur golden girl in the care home for winning all the feces smearing competitions.

I pity you. I truly do, no words can ever reach you to understand how ignorant you are in life. You are so emotionally stunted you have to correlate your man hate to your uncle who befell misfortune and instead of being depressed accepted a new thought process so he doesn't meet each day with suicidal thought of how he's a failure. All you care about is your niece/nephews "growing up poor". You don't understand what spirituality is, the face you say he's in it for comfort rather than faith is stupid. Part of spirituality is finding comfort in your soul and by extension emotions. Some people find that comfort through faith, or the simple life teachings that it provides. So no, no one was telling you to get indoctrinated or take everything critically, just be open to perhaps a new experience to grow you as a person. I wasn't even the person who suggested it, but seeing your shit talk against it disgusted me.

To top it off you can correlate the church to "incels" because they said the same thing. People say the same shit all the time, just because one parrots off of the other doesn't mean they have the same intentions. You try to force the context of an "incel" wanting a virgin with that of the church when it's two totally different principals. This is what I mean by ignorant, you don't understand deep meaning behind anything. You are so superficial and shallow.
Which by the way to tie this all off google the term thot sometime, you will then understand that traditional women can't be thots.

P.S. Take some time away from shitposting and read about some shit seriously and take time to experience it, become educated. Shitposting isn't going to get to anywhere and you got about as much knowlege/understanding as an incel.

Anonymous 18573


It's hard to describe how funny and stereotypical your whole post is. That's exactly how losers who seek religion to escape their own failures sound like.

"You are so ignorant!11 Go get educated!11". While providing no arguments whatsoever.
Let me guess, your SO or some other male in your family is a failure at life, and uses religion as escape. So instead of admitting that he's a failure and doing something about it, he pretends to be oh so pious and moral. He convinced you of his bullshit, and now instead of rightfully despising him for being a pathetic piece of shit, you start pitying him, and stay as to not appear shallow. You also enjoy the sense of validation that comes from feeling morally superior to others, and the victim complex that comes from feeling like a martyr.

His faith is a coping mechanism for being a failure, and your faith is a coping mechanism for being WITH a failure.

Anyway, the fact that your first piece of advice (and one you seem to give to everyone on this board) was "go find a man to tell you how to live" is pretty telling. "Internalized misogyny", they call it. Personally, I call it "being too weak and stupid to not be manipulated by men".

Anonymous 18574

Holy scapegoats and man hate batman. You know I was just shitting on you for acting like people repellent and perhaps you need to work on yourself some. While also drilling in there the notion that possibly you don't know shit even if you pretend you do. But let's be real, you are so disillusioned to what the fuck reality is and so entrenched in this whole man hate garbage that you just keep bringing it up when in reality, a belief system has nothing to do with men. Just because it came from an era with heavy patriarchal affiliation, doesn't mean the actual teachings inside on how to be a decent person is somehow related or negated because of this. Just like any pile of garbage information, you pick the good stuff from the shit, not look at the shit and invalidate any worth in there. But I digress, you have a serious man hate issue that goes way beyond this and the fact you keep moving goal posts about how you don't understand the christian faith and correlate it to men is fucking sad. I don't know what your uncle did to you, but it's time to separate personal experiences from actual things you know, this projection makes me want to vomit. I thought people on 4chan projected but this is far worse than anything I've ever seen. I don't know why you're so hard on "failures" because in my eyes, you're feels posting about not being able to make one friend, wasting your young adulthood on image boards, and you have not one actual fond memory of anything tangible in real life is pretty much a big sign of a failure. So maybe you're mad about how much of a failure you are and you're jealous of how someone else can cope with not being successful in life while still being happy. I don't know, I'm not Sigmund Freud. All I know is that person nor I was telling you to run to a man for advice that was you shoving words down our throats about your personal issue with men.

Also I'm not here to teach you shit. You aren't going to learn, you are making a fake persona of me to attack based on who you think I am. You're too arrogant to teach, you need to be humbled before you would be susceptible to any ideas that somehow, just somehow being happy even when you fail at life isn't a terrible thing. You know the saying "make lemons into lemonade", you can't just quit on life when you fall and wait until you get back up to your former glory, sometimes you never do. You gotta keep moving because life doesn't stop for your ass and this is a common fact among many functioning adults in the real world. This whole garbage you spout about religion being an escape is stupid. That is what religion is PERIOD. It's a way for people to feel less shitty because they take spiritual view points where maybe all the shitty things that are happening in life aren't that important, and they learn to adjust their focus on what they feel is more important. People want to feel at peace and calm, that is why they do shit like organized religion, yoga, tai chi… whatever the fuck else. Just because it helps people feel better doesn't mean it's somehow fucking the worst thing in the world, and this notion of failing and succeeding is seeded in something personal for you that I don't understand. Failing and succeeding is a relative term anyways.

Also last note, posting pictures of anime girls smoking doesn't make you look mature or smart. Including with all this ignorant man hate? I'm done after this, but I implore you with this. It's time to do some self reflection, you need to grow as a person emotionally and ethically. You are lagging by 10 years, this is shit I expect out of 14 year olds being shepherd by failures with a liberal arts degree in feminism.

Anonymous 18575

Yeah, maybe religion is great for being happy wallowing in your own shit and deluding yourself, but I'd rather be sad and wallow in my own shit, because then at least I'd be honest. Acceptance is the first step to enlightenment, as they say.

If you need a dusty old book to tell you how to live, good for you. I'm glad you found a way to lower your standards and expectations. But not everyone is content with being a failure. Some people think being a failure is bad, and try to do something about it. And offering religion as a solution for real problems is like saying "just forget about your problems, jesus loves you lol". Yeah, no. That's not a solution, that's self delusion.

I don't have a man hating issue, rather it's you who has a man-worship issue. If a man is a pathetic sack of shit who can't provide for his family, and doesn't even try to fix that, he's a pathetic sack of shit in my eyes, religion or not. Even more pathetic, though, are women who put up with that.

The world needs more true Christianity now more than ever. If you look at all the sin in the world, you should be hoping that more people get right with God. Living and obeying God's commandments (not for salvation) will result in a more enjoyable life.

Proof that God exists?

Anonymous 18584


The most god-fearing, religious people you know are adulterers, child abusers, virulent racists, domestic abusers, thieves, alcoholics, drug addicts, liars, rapists, etc with a thin veneer of righteousness. :)
I'm not some edgy atheist with no knowledge of Christianity, either. I know this because I was literally raised by this group and surrounded by them all my life. My parents are devoted Protestants, and outside of their issues, which I won't go into, they were close to one of the most prominent, "iconic" Christian figures on the face of my continent.
Guess what he did? Try to siphon large amounts of money from them via lies and manipulation, attempt to loop my mother into a sexual relationship with him while she was married, and advocate for a rapist to further his scheme with us. A rapist who hugged me as a child, and they let it happen. This isn't on his Wikipedia page, and it never will be, because he is successful, influential, rich and Christians love him. My parents are still so brainwashed that they forgive it (he never apologized or acknowledged his wrongdoings), and continue to praise him as a "Man of God". That much cemented for me that it wasn't just me with a negative experience. This is how this institution is meant to work. Stronger people eating the weak, who go out of their way to brainwash themselves, each other and their children. If this is truly a "Man of God", I want nothing to do with this evil cult, and no one else should. Stop shilling it. People who haven't experienced what this is first-hand don't deserve to suffer even more just so you have even more people to be delusional with.

If God is real, any truly righteous, spiritual person needs no institution and will worship alone.

Anonymous 18585

NTA. I was raised in a heavy christian environment and you have a point. many of the fake god fearing people are fucking perverse, like the man who abused me. a few aren't though, like my mother. she's an actually good person and tries to do what she preaches, but she is an exception. i wish more people decided to worship their god without an institution… if god is real he doesn't really need that shit imo either.

Anonymous 18587

Not the case for me. I was raised on kind of "Christian", but I didn't get saved until I was 23

The Bible says that we should not forsake the assembling of ourselves together. If you are a "lone wolf" Christian, you're not in God's will.

God is real, and he hates false prohpets who abuse people like that. The Bible talks about those people and you can be sure they will burn in Hell for all eternity. Vengeance is mine; I will repay saith the Lord.

Anonymous 18590

If that were the case, those prophets wouldn't be leading such successful, wealthy lives well into their old age, and God's "real children" would see through their bullshit instead of exalting them. Also, >>18589 is correct.

I feel like "good" Christians are just vulnerable to "bad" ones, and it makes me sad.

Anonymous 18592

God's children are those that have heard and believe the Gospel. I can tell you from experience of asking people if they're saved, that the vast vast majority of people (at least in America), who say they're Christian are on their way to Hell. It's sad when someone tells you this, because often times they don't want to hear the one true Gospel.

Anonymous 18607


Wow this thread got derailed.

Anon who is trying to evangelize, this is not effective. When you come at people all fire and brimstone and insulting/admonishing them it just makes them more entrenched in their beliefs that Christians are bad people. Do you think anyone has changed their mind from this conversation or is this just creating more bitterness?

Remember these rules for when it's appropriate to "admonish the sinner":
Is the thing you are admonishing serious? Unless they explicitly ask you to, nitpicking people over trivial matters does not help them. It is likely to drive them away. I know this is coming from a place of concern for other anons' souls but if it didn't before this definitely turned into nitpicking when you started going off on anon just for posting pics of anime girls smoking.

Is the person you are admonishing likely to heed your warning? When you admonish someone who isn't receptive to it, it makes them defensive and emboldens them.

Are you the best person to deliver this message? Even if something is serious and they may be receptive to admonishment from you, sometimes there are people in their lives who would be a better choice at delivering the message.

If you can answer all three questions with a yes, then you should admonish. Otherwise, it is better to bite your tongue.

Anonymous 18608

I don't appreciate being called a sinner by some random person on a moral high horse either, so I guess you should also bite your tongue.

Can't you religious freaks just piss off? I don't come at you breaching about buddhism or whatever, so maybe you could have the common courtesy to do the same.

I feel so dumb and led on
So earlier this year I move back with my family, they moved to a new town. It’s small and there’s only one store there
Meet new neighbor, he’s kinda cute but I decide I shouldn’t get involved in romance this year. It turns out he works at the only store there. My family goes there A LOT. All through our summer he kinda low key flirts with me. I thought he was sweet. Then one day he compliments the way I dress and says I look pretty. At this point I already had feelings for him and this pushed me to tell him that I had a crush on him . So the next week when I went to the store I told him I liked him. He says cool, and that we’ll talk about it later (we don’t) two months pass by and finally in November he talks to me and asks why don’t I talk to him (I put all the effort to admit I liked him and we’re neighbors he could’ve easily come over and talked to me?) he tried asking for my phone number but I told him the truth , that I don’t have a phone in service just a phone to use WiFi. I later brought up the idea of him taking me to the movies (and I hate the movies I only said it so he could ask me out) and he said okay that he will come over my house and ask me out. Last thing he said before I left the store was “don’t worry I’m a nice guy!” That should’ve been a red flag. I was so so excited and happy and I told my mom that I might be taken out on a date. And now we’re closer to 2019 and he hasn’t even tried to contact me, I moved out this week and I doubt he even cares. To make matters worse, my cousin (who’s 15 and has Kim Kardashian’s body type, the reason why I mention that is because he’s said before those girls aren’t his type) swears that he asked her out to the movies before and that every time she goes there he stares at her. I don’t know if this is true or not but it really broke my heart. I put so much feeling into a person who never cared and honestly I shouldn’t care about him I didn’t really know him but it still really hurts. I kept telling myself “oh well he’s probably really busy” but I don’t know he probably was just messing with me

My ass hurts so much because of fricking haemorrhoids. I've had it for a few months actually, but today I've really outdone myself on the toilet. Like even after hours I still feel pain/discomfort. A few weeks ago the GP gave me a cream and laxatives. The cream works, but the laxatives don't for some reason which creates a dumb cycle of laxatives, cream, healing, tearing my ass open again, laxatives, etc. I would consider taking more laxatives than prescribed but I'm scared of fucking up my digestion because I remember reading about this ana girl that used laxatives just once and then had to wear a stomabag for the rest of her life. I have a new appointment in 2 fricking weeks. It seems so far away..my ass hurts so much pls help I have no idea how to prepare for my next shit, I'm srsly gonna suffer girls

Hi, I had almost the same problem but I fixed it. Of course everyone's different and blablabla but I saw your post and felt really bad since you are basically where I was about a month ago, so I thought I'd tell you what I did. Hope it helps. [spoiler]
>make a natural laxative out of 2 tbsp baking soda dissolved/mixed in a tall glass of water
>no, this isn't poison (https://www.healthline.com/health/digestive-health/baking-soda-for-constipation). It'll make you burp a bit and should taste like salty water if you mixed it correctly. It has the effect of sending water to your colon and making it contract, which makes you poop
>drank that, slowly, not all at once, and followed it with some apple vinegar drink, but this is optional. I read that it's supposed to aid digestion
>wait about an hour, until stomach starts to grumble
When you feel like you have to fart, go to the toilet. You'll be shitting liquid for a while until your insides are completely cleaned out. If your first one's relatively solid, then you still have way more to go so don't think you're finished yet. Let it do its thing, try not to strain at all (you shouldn't have to, tbh), and then take a warm shower and put some hemorrhoid cream on when you're finished.

Afterwards, drink a lot of water. Like, a lot a lot. Like, find a tall glass or a refillable bottle and go through so many of those that you're peeing regularly. Get some spinach if it's readily available where you live and eat it a lot, since the roughage from that stuff practically lubes your colon up and makes for smooth passing shits.

Do this and you'll be fine. I went from passing shits so hard that they kept me in bed for hours afterwards to being in and out of the bathroom in minutes by doing this. The laxative acts as a nice reset, and the rest is up to you, assuming you don't have some other dietary/hereditary issue. You don't have to post an update, but if it works for you I'd be happy to know I helped someone. Merry new year!

I know spending the holidays alone is supposed to have this stigma against it, but the whole experience today made me feel more alone than ever. I couldn't relate to anyone, and worse, I didn't WANT to relate to anyone there. I think that's the worst part of it.

Thanks for the eye opener anons.
Honestly, I don't really think I'm the worst - I think I'm relatively average actually. But I feel like there's nothing about me that's special or noteworthy and that I'm easily replaceable.

Analysing these thoughts, I don't really hate anything about me in particular - I'm relatively nice looking, although it took me years to get here. I'm nice to people but shy and standoffish, and I assume that they are either indifferent towards me or vaguely dislike me. I don't have many friends, am not stupid but not particularly smart, my personality only shines when I'm in private with my bf, I haven't done anything noteworthy, I'm just… there.

These thoughts do not occur regularly, but they're easily triggered by random setbacks like losing at a game (which will sometimes lead to thinking that I'm shit at everything), someone casually telling me something that I'll pick apart and use to feel bad about myself, getting a bad grade, not looking my best at a particular moment…

As a child I escaped a war, my parents fought bitterly and divorced around the same time, and my grandmother that I lived with never had a kind word to say about anything ever. My dad always doubted everything I did (when I wanted to join a kids church choir he asked me if I was sure I could sing, as an example), my mum tried to force me to love myself by threatening me that nobody will love me unless I do, I developed panic disorder as a preteen and had days long existential crises from overthinking about death. I got cheated on 6 months ago. I don't know what the cause of this is, but it's making my life pretty shitty. I feel like I'm not supposed to feel bad and that's what I've been told my whole life ("I cook and clean for you, you have everything you need, WHY are you still unhappy?"), nothing in my life is explicitly bad, it's just a collection of marginally shitty things that eventually ball up into some sort of rat king of misery. Maybe I really am just a spoilt whiny baby, idk.

I've felt like this for a long time. I thought maybe it's BPD but I don't fit the description otherwise, I'm very routine-oriented, love familiarity, never lash out at anyone else and always keep my thoughts to myself. Most times I just want to disappear when I'm upset. I can't afford a therapist atm.

I hate seeing my bf desperate, I hate seeing my parents unhappy, I hate being like this but hating it just makes it worse. I don't want to be like this but I don't know what it is and how to stop thinking I'm shitty. That's my novel for the evening.

Feeling this way makes me hate myself. I love my bf, and my friend is head over heels in love with his gf (we both talk about our s/o's a lot). I don't want anything to happen between us, but I can't help but feel really, really sexually attracted to him.

It'd be nice to talk about these feelings with him so we can clear them up and move on, but I know I'll never get the balls to have a conversation with him about it. Ugh.

I definitely won't, anon. Back when we started flirting I was very unstable and I thought about cheating (dumb), but now that I've grown a bit, I know I'd never do that. It's just hard to keep these feelings bottled up since I can't talk to my IRL friends about the situation.

I question if you know what love is. You keep saying you love him and you are super happy, but if you were really in love with your boyfriend you wouldn't be fucking around with this guy behind his back so much. You wouldn't need his attention, interaction or anything.

I feel like you're just so comfortable with your situation now, that you don't want to lose it all for a risky and possibly shitter situation with another guy that you want to get with. I don't think that's love, that's just complacency and it's kind of a bitch move that he's given you everything you wanted but somehow you're still not happy.

I've made a couple friends online, but I never instigate the friendships. I don't really have the desire to become friendly with anyone, I just want to post my art & reblog stuff from fandoms. All in all, I don't enjoy texting, I find it more of a struggle than a joy to keep up the conversation. I always feel as if it's left up to me to not let it go stagnant, so I just don't bother texting in the first place. I'm mostly texting out of politeness when I do now.

The people I've become friendly with are really nice, when I'm in the mood I can keep up a fun conversation, but the rest of the time I cannot be bothered. This becomes a problem when I post my art, or reblog something, cause each of them immediately text me hi. I'm normally posting at the early hours of the morning sO I'm not wanting to delve into a deep convo, but they keep messaging me. I start to feel guilty cause I know they can see I'm actively blogging and it means I'm ignoring them.

I don't really know how to go about it, I've started to avoid posting at all cause I don't want them to see I'm online. I can't use the excuse of 'I was busy sorrryyy' all the time, and it's not as if I can say that I don't want to be friends anymore. I know it makes me a bad person - each of the dudes keep asking for me to video chat / phone call, and I feel as if we don't know each other THAT well and it makes me uncomfortable, so I avoid talking even more. I hate feeling as if I can't be active online without having to be available to people.

I feel equal parts that I'm a shitty friend for not texting, and that I literally don't care.
I'm writing all this cause one of the guys is currently guilt tripping me for not texting him recently after reblogging some art I liked. I've actually gone to the trouble of making a separate twitter to reblog stuff on, it's pathetic the lengths I'll go to to avoid conversation. I also feel low-key that they're only friends with me because they think they'll get free art of it, or they like the fact that I've got a decent amount of followers. I don't know, I just can't imagine why you'd still text someone who clearly isn't bothered in keeping up conversations with you.

I've been reading more about artists and cosplayers cows because I've followed a lot of fanartists on tumblr and twitter and I was curious but these threads are either slower than a snail or dead and buried.

We had issues but he was everything to me and I was desperately trying to make it work. For a whole month I kept asking him if we were okay and when we'd see each other again (LDR) and he led me on and then finally dumped me over text messages. I don't know what to do. I know people go through heartbreak every day and all I can do is wait, but it's hard.

Sometimes I would get very honest in a post and people would tell me I need to see a head doctor but I kept putting it off. My best friend asked me to go and so I went on the third of this month as a new years resolution. So I went to the local non profit mental health clinic that does a sliding scale for low income.

The lady I talked to made me cry at multiple points and the entire experience was very awful. At one point she suggested locking me up in a loonie bin again and I said nothing about suicide. The lady was an absolute quack and made me go into detail about sexual shit between me and a guardian instead of just accepting my "yes" when she asked if I had been abused. She was very pushy going "WHY!?" when I said I never pressed charges, she was incredibly pushy and kept telling me I needed to tell my dad and wouldn't listen when I said no good would come from it.

It was such an awful experience. I hate psychologists so much. I've literally not met one that wasn't a fat old retard. I was very clear I just wanted to see a psychiatrist and get meds but she insisted to sign me up for "trauma therapy". Holy fuck.

I'm continually heartbroken over my little brother. I love him so much, it's why it's so utterly painful sometimes to see him in so much pain and misery. My life sucks sometimes, but his life is miserable and I hate saying this, but, I don't think it's going to get better any time soon. He's NEET. He's incel (technically, he doesn't seem actually hateful or anything, told me doesn't identify as one.) And he's very mentally ill with the same rough childhood experience that I have. He was sexually abused as a child and it has utterly ruined him. He doesn't have any friends. He just sits in his room all day, on his computer, or playing video games. There is no spark in his eye. He tried to commit suicide a few years ago and he really did give therapy and medication an earnest try, but he's still the same he's always been. He tells me he doesn't know what he wants anymore, he has no aspirations, he doesn't even think about tfw no gf anymore.

He went years without speaking to me because he isolated himself from anyone, and also because I kind of said some hurtful things to him and he held a grudge for a long time because of that. I still regret that to this day. But now we have a better relationship, we talk more, I've gotten to know him better and he's gotten to know me, but it's also been emotionally taxing for me because he's so needy, and deservedly so because no one else in our shit family cares about him or has tried to help him. Every time I talk with him irl he ends up crying and saying how sorry he is for being a burden on everyone, how much he hates himself, and how he wishes I had a better brother. It shatters my heart every time. I'm the only girl, nay, the only person he's ever really been close to, the only person who has hugged him since he was a little kid and emotionally he just can't deal with intimacy in a normal way that most people do.

I'm just so angry at the world for having failed him so miserably. Michael, I know I tell you this often, but I love you dearly and I wish I could somehow go back in time and prevent all the bad stuff that happened to you, to us. I wish I could take your pain anyway and put it on myself. You are such a gentle soul, such a sweet, smart, funny guy deep down inside. You are too good for this world.

But truth be told I expected it to be a romantic thing, not so much friendship. I feel like a ton of people do that because they have the attention span of a toddler and the people that don't hold their interest fall the wayside and then they can't feel assed to pretend to be interested in you anymore.

Have you acted on it in a direct way? I thought I had unrequited love but actually it was reciprocated… But both I and the girl I liked were too shy too speak up so we never were (actually it was probably for the best, I still think fondly of her even though we don't talk at all).

Of you've actually confessed and the person you like doesn't feel the same way, you can either move on or jeep trying. Without more details I can't really give advice.

I don't like when people hate on middle class suburban soccer moms who are involved with their kids lives and do things like organize community children's plays, plan holiday parties for their kid's classroom, plan campouts for girlscouts etc. They're not getting paid to do any of that and those are all things that make a community an actually nice place to live in. It's sexist to devalue the work they do.

I'm sorry! I didn't even plan on venting as much as I did when I wrote that but I ended up getting pretty personal with it, and emotional. I actually had a talk with him last night and it went about as well as I've come to expect lately. There was a lot of crying and he tried to self-harm again but I physically restrained him. He eventually calmed down. We spoke for hours. It was brutal and exhausting. He really opened up about his molestation in a way he never has before and it was earth-shattering to hear him talk about honestly. All the self-hatred and self-esteem issues he's had to deal with. He said something like this to me, he said, "I'm chasing an idea of manhood that'll never be attainable to me because no matter what I'll always have to live with the fact that another man had his way with me." And the anguish on his face when he said that was suicide fuel. I was close to calling someone and having him admitted because it got so bad at points. He cries so hard and with such extreme force that I worry his head is going to explode. I wish I could do more for him but what can I do? I just stay with him and hold him and tell him I love him, that'll I'll do my best to help reintegrate himself into society but I don't know if it'll actually work. I'm so angry at everyone for failing him so miserably. Grrrr!!

You realize none of those things actually improve a community or make it a nice place to live. I'm surprised they didn't also list planning fun sleepover events while they were at it.

Ordering a few pizzas, buying chips and other snacky foods with soda paired with some shitty holiday themed 1 dollar table cloth for children does not improve a community. Neither does organizing a shitty play, or any of those things. Volunteering would be actually helping people in need, cleaning up parks, doing hard labor, throwing pointless events and parties that doesn't benefit anyone but saying "kids look at how great and fun I am". Everything a white mom does does not improve or help anything, they just flourish how nice their life is to everyone around them because they have such little worries in life that they can do asinine shit like this as call it "volunteering".

They do though, regardless if it isn't to the extent of doing hard labor. Improving the school environment does help out kids. Most people who volunteer don't claim to be saints or anything, a lot see it just as a hobby, they aren't super serious about "changing the world". Many just do stuff for their own families and children, there is nothing wrong with that.

Doings things out of a self interest and benefit is not volunteering. That's not doing anything for the good of anyone, you are just using a public display to spoil your child and involving their clique because if you did this public display for only your kid you would look like an absolute piece of shit.

This is why I don't respect you or any type of person like this, you pretend that you're a good person and caring and that they actually do good things, but in reality deep down at the root of it your just spoiling your child in front of every other kid who can't have that treatment and involving them on what it's like for the spoiled child's life causing envy and bitterness in other kids because they have a shit life compared to your child.

Provide your kids with a nice upbringing, do it in your home, not gloating in front of other kids who don't have the same privileges. Not every kid can have a stable home, let alone have a parent be there for them, it's insensitive and ignorant to everything that isn't in your little world view of your tiny bubble of your child and your ideal dreams of being viewed as a good mother by other parents.

I think the story in that image is more about a petty woman that has nothing to be proud of, but lives a comfortable life with no worries and only cares about being 'cool' or whatever, so she's really only doing things for herself and isn't a genuinely caring mother. That's why there's the whole part where the daughter gets grounded for taking the 'spotlight'.
Don't get me wrong, it's great if they actually mean well, and it's disgusting how most of society (or at least boys) view single, hard-working moms, but that story isn't a good example.

Also this. I had a really nice childhood thanks to moms who tirelessly volunteered at our school, some had full-time jobs too. Without them my mom wouldn't have been able to afford expensive dance classes or tutors to teach me to play instruments and I would have probably just sat at home watching TV or hanging out with a bad crowd. Thanks to them, I made friends with other kids in my area that I might not have ever spoken to otherwise (and who I still talk to) and I was keeping fit while discussions about how to tackle obesity were going on. Our school wouldn't have been able to do put on half the events that we had annually if they didn't take such an interest in what their kids were doing. All of these things rely on moms volunteering to drive kids to sports matches, cook warm meals for kids and staff, make costumes, sell tickets and operate behind the scenes while everyone else is having a good time. Just because they're working a thankless job, doesn't make the value of their hard work any less.

Anyway, I've seen the kind of effect something like this has on a community. Now I'm volunteering to teach kids how to code because I want to give back.

>pretend that you're a good person
But they aren't really? They are just doing something nice, and it's normal to be grateful when you are someone benefiting from those nice actions (like your kid goes to the event). Volunteering can be out of self-interest, literally all it means is doing some kind of work for free. Everyone ultimately does things out of self-interest anyways, even these "real volunteers" you talk about. Doing something nice for your kid every once and a while isn't necessarily spoiling them. Do you get mad when a parent throws their kid a birthday party in a public space?
I'm sorry you're so salty about being a poorfag.

For instance, I keep telling her not to message me asking to hang out during the week since it pisses my mom off (this is a whole other thing), and she acts like she understands at first, but then a few weeks later she does it again and acts hurt when I don't rush over to meet her.

In her defense, she's had a rough time these last few weeks, and I want to support her so I've tried to be there for her more often, but it feels like she's gotten even more demanding lately. Am I being a baby about this? It just feels like she doesn't understand I have obligations to other people in my life besides her.

Birthday parties, plays, all of that crap isn't what made incels the way they are, both male and female. What made them the way they are is because when they had to reach social independence without their parents planning all their organized events where the kid could socialize among friends, they failed. They couldn't spread their wings and fly, they fell out of the nest and hard unto the ground and instead of getting up they stagnated on the ground and got angry at others who were able to fly while they weren't.

Being a parent isn't about the big extravagant things for the "community" or any of this other crap. Being a parent is about the small things for your child, taking them to their friends house, picking them up, helping them with school projects, listening to them and never being too busy to spend time with them regardless as a small child or a teen and providing home cooked meals or at least meals they like.

This is another reason why I don't respect mothers like that, they are so focused on this picture of community, when in reality they don't bother to focus on their own kid and family, they are too busy shoving themselves and said family into a setting that while it's nice to once in a while to participate in, it is not a healthy environment to grow a family in.

t. kid who was forced to constantly participate within a church community with kids I had nothing in common with and didn't go to the same school as while my parents focused fully on their community participation leaving me to feel incredibly isolated and all exclaims of hating these sentiments were met with "You just gotta do things you don't like something, you will like it eventually." Thus I turned to internet and video games for escape and I even went as far as to installing starcraft secretly on a PC we had access to in someones office so I could hide in there and play games.

All volunteering is out of self-interest and benefit. Even the most "selfless" of volunteers are still only doing it because helping others makes them feel good.

>gloating in front of other kids who don't have the same privileges. Not every kid can have a stable home, let alone have a parent be there for them

Isn't this even more reason for the parents who are well-off to organize group events for all the kids in the community, since not every kid can rely on their own parents for such experiences?

Some are like that but a lot of people that end up like that also had bad upbringings where they had no opportunities for community participation and just watched TV/played video games all day, I see both scenarios a lot. There are a lot of things that can mess someone up but getting your kids involved in things like little league and Scouts which require a lot of parent involvement if the kids want to do those things isn't going to hurt. You were coerced to do activities you didn't want to but a lot of kids enjoy that kind of stuff. You can give your kids needed daily one on one attention and also get them involved in community activities, these things aren't mutually exclusive. Even though you had a bad experience, hypothetically in the future if your kids wanted to do that stuff and you had the means to provide it for them, would you deny them the opportunity?

1: i'm in my third semester of cc, taking college algebra ~finally~ + a bonus, remedial course to pair with that since i've never studied math properly. we had to graph functions today & i could barely do it. the teacher told us not to worry, since everyone is going to have issues with doing things for the first time, but man i feel guilty & ashamed. i wish i had studied harder in the past so i wouldn't be so behind now.
also somewhat worried over my scheduling, i have a transfer agreement with a certain uni but if i run out of funds to pay for cc right now, i don't know what i'll do. wasn't planning to be here for more than 4 semesters, i also wanted to take a few summer courses, but perhaps i should add those to fall in order to meet the fall aid requirement.

2: i love my mother but i wish she wouldn't hype herself up & brag all the damn time over how great she was at parenting just for doing the bare essentials. mainly keeping a roof over my head, not having men in and out of the house, keeping me fed & clothed, etc. dgmw i am definitely grateful to her, since i grew up in a poor neighborhood and not everyone had that.

but i am also somewhat resentful, since if she hadn't gone messing with married men i would not be here in the first place, or if she hadn't been an alcoholic and brushed all my problems under the rug with 'well people don't matter anyway' or 'just get over it', perhaps i would be in a better place right now.

A function is really just a set of ordered pairs representing input from some input set and output set. Realistically it's just a relation from some inputs to possible outputs with the only restrictions being that each input only has one output and each input has a defined output. A graph is just a visual representation of a function where you take each ordered pair and put the input on one axis with the output on another axis.

So, for a concrete example lets say your input set is just the numbers {1,2,3,4} and your relation was just asking if they were even so your output set was {Even, NotEven}. Then your function would just be the resulting set: {(1, NotEven), (2, Even), (3, NotEven), (4, Even)}. If you wanted to graph this then you'd just set up your X axis with the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 and your Y axis with the values Even and NotEven. Then just take each input {1,2,3,4}, put your pencil over the input, then move up to what its output was and make a dot there. In this case your input set was just the numbers {1,2,3,4} and your output set was the two values {Even, NotEven}. Clearly each input maps to a single output and every input has a valid output so it's a function. Now you can just apply that to much larger sets and relations like the real numbers and arithmetic to get more useful functions. But I'm sure you'll realize that enumerating through all its pairs for big functions is a big pain so people just write a shorthand like f(x) = x + 1, you can read this as the function f at the value x. That just means that you can get any of the function's input / output pairs by substituting x for a value from your input set. So, if my input set were the real numbers I could just take some random value like 1.5, substitute it into the generic form f(x), and get out the pair (1.5, 2.5). Then you just put that one your graph, repeat for enough values until you get a good idea of the shape of the graph and then stop. Some functions don't have defined input at certain values like f(x) = 1 / x, which breaks when x = 0. For those you just make your input set something like "All real numbers except 0" so you have defined output for every input.

I'm sure this didn't help at all but I was just trying to see how much algebra I remembered since you never use it once you finish the class.

He said on multiple occasions he thought I was catfishing him etc and I didnt undertsand and thought he was trolling me about it. I kept saying I was super ugly and he said no youre not etc. But yetserday I sent him a pic of my full face and I think things have died down a lot. I still dont know if its just me projecting but idk. I feel like Ive ruined our relationship. It was the only thing that brought me joy and an escape of my disgusting real life and now my real life has gotten to me online as well.

Hard truth is, you can't really do much. If he loses interests because of shallow appearances, there isn't much you can do to change that unless you're fat or something like that. That's why it's important to not hide yourself or your flaws to people, because honestly when the flaws come out and you become attached, it hurts a lot worse when they decide they want nothing to do with you.

Or maybe he will get over it and things will be fine. Just stick it out and wait and see what happens honestly all you can do.

What do you mean by "think positively of you"? Is he actually ignoring you/acting like he dislikes you, or do you just mean he doesn't compliment you or flirt with you?
It may be the case that he doesn't see you in a romantic way, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'd say no to a date, which would give you the chance to make him see you in that way. It's even possible that he's not making advances because he sees you as being out of his league. Either way, I doubt he's going to spontaneously change how he's been acting, so if you want anything to change, you're going to have to be the one that asks him out.
You may not want to disturb what you have with him now, but would that be worse than seeing him with someone else? Because he will find someone else sooner or later if you don't make a move.

I'm 25 now, things are looking un-optimistic for me. High school I dated someone for a few years, but it fell apart due to a lot of reasons. I failed during college in finding someone. Even post college, I tried talking to people, tried putting myself out there, there was no traction. The people I did have something with didn't want anything to do with me. People always say two things when it comes to dating "do something you love and you will meet someone eventually" and "you have to love yourself". The thing I love doing is being a shut in, I like being indoors doing dumb stuff than I do being out, and the few times I do go out I'm going out to eat alone. And the loving myself part is very hard, I'm sure I have some diagnosed variety of depression coupled with some kind of co-dependency issue. I feel incredibly alone and I'm not a big fan of this feeling but I feel like nothing I can do will let me escape from this self imposed cycle of isolation unless I force myself into situations that I'll hate and won't feel comfortable in.

The worst part about all of this is my high school relationship complications left me with certain feelings and ideas that aren't ideal to others. I can be a bit obsessive and junk, and it also put me through an emotional hell where at the end of everything, made me feel more compassionate and in the end all I want is someone who I can emotionally connect to and lean on. I don't want to make them into my therapist, or even fix me. I just want that person who knows who I am deep down, that I have had these issues and they stuck with me. They don't rule my life, but they influence how I feel and it seems like everyone gets bored of me after I tell them who I am deep down. All I feel at the moment is this suffocating feeling that I'm a failure and no one will ever like me romantically, the more time I wait the more I feel like I'll just never find anyone and I'm terrifed of entering into that relationship of 'Well we can't find anyone else, and you make me fell less alone, lets get into a terrible relationship that is half hearted love and will likely end up in divorce 15-20 years down the line after we get sick of each other." In the end all I'm trying to say is I'm really alone, I have baggage that doesn't rule my life, I'm a shut in, and I just want to find someone to love who will love me and it feels like an impossible feat because how am I supposed to find another shut in? No one wants to do LDRs.

I feel wrong, I self insert myself into those situations. Most of the time when I'm at places like that I'm just trying to find something to buy, I don't want randos to bother me while I'm trying to find thing I want. I'm socially awkward, if I'm not emotionally/mentally prepared to interact with others I'm cold and distant and I just try to end the conversation to go on my way.

I wish I was better at talking to people. I never know what to say or how to say it. I dislike interacting with people as well so it's difficult to find the motivation to improve my speaking skills. I've read meme books like pic related but I can't ever put anything into practice correctly, I feel very fake all the time. People have made fun of me behind my back for having a deadpan expression all the time out of nervousness.

Do you work from home as well?

Also I still think there should be a dating site marketed specifically toward shut-ins. If a dating site for farmers can succeed, why not one for hermits?

Anonymous 20181

I wrote a pretty big paragraph about this but honestly, it comes down to a lot of shut-ins/hermits are mentally ill and do not play well with others a lot of the time. Also the fact that somoene actually has to have a sizable income to be able to support the website and be able to give shut-ins the actual courage to constantly/frequently use the website. Let's be fair a lot of shut ins go through a high and low of social interaction, where in a high they will be courageous enough to reach out and find someone, and then hit a low where they want to be alone and sometimes these lows last a long time. So you have the risk of a lot of dead/inactive accounts.

Also every time I tried internet dating groups that were long distance, I was lied to a lot and people aren't as honest as they seem. I don't think it would work well, I'd love for it to but I don't want to start an investment like that where I'm pretty sure it will be rooted in drama, name dropping, and tales of shitty people doing shitty things to each other.

>tell him someone asked me if I was a lesbian because I never had a bf, fag tells me I better not be because then he'd stop being friends with me
>in an expression of autism that'd make Chris Chan blush, my retard "friend" casually puts his finger in my asscrack, when I get mad he apologizes like the retard he is
>next day cooks me a pizza and I accept his apologies because I don't want to be a friendless loser
>gets offended when I give him suggestions for his autistic book that's edgy fanfiction 101 with a shitty edgelord protagonist with an angsty past even though I was trying to help him make his shitty book less cringe
>gets offended when I try to help him out at Chemistry class because reasons
>had to pretend I didn't like sportsball because he hated sports and anyone who liked them
>stopped talking to me when I told him I didn't love him nor wanted to shag him
I don't even know why we were friends in the first place, he was the embodiment of cringe (wore all black, gun sperg, unironically listened to linkin park, liked edgy anime, pervert, acted like an autist while not even being one, edgelord, liked ragefaces in 2015, you catch the drift)

I've been hatefollowing this one weeaboo piece of shit for years now because I initially found her craft content interesting but now she barely uploads anymore and it's low quality whenever she does. Her popularity is dying and I'm happy enough with that because what changed everything from a normal following into a hatefollowing was how she started copying "popular" trends (including tide pods) to stay relevant.

She married a while ago and has a baby now (that she openly admitted to naming after an animal crossing character… jesus christ) and while that's more than what I've done over these few past years I'm considering the vendetta over and unfollowing permanently. Chances are she's going to make a shit mom and will probably start milking her child for youtube views, knowing her shitty personality. I'm not sticking around anymore, and if anything held on for waaay longer than I was ever obliged to hoping for shit to get better when it didn't.

Because loneliness and misery are your comfort zones and leaving those behind feels unfamiliar and scary. Going from knowing what tomorrow holds to having no idea about the future. No idea about how this other person will respond to you when you open up emotionally. It's terrifying and it'll never be perfect enough to bother trying. So you lash out, or ghost him online, or make him think you're not worth the time by acting like a crazy person, and he goes away and the future regains its certainty.

I'm the same exact way so maybe I'm just … projecting a lot. But that's why I do it. It hurts and I'm always lonely. Break out of it if you can help it; don't be like me.

I am hyper sensitive to pain and my nipples hurt too bad to breastfeed. When I was hopped up on painkillers in the delivery room to get my torn open anus and vagina sewn up and tried to breastfeed I was still in so much pain I was crying and my mother in law was scolding me for scaring the baby. I've been helped by lactation consultants and it's not an issue with the baby having a bad latch or a tied tongue, it's just me. I tried pumping on a gentle setting that I can tolerate and my milk production was very low, I had to pump for about two hours to produce enough for one feeding (and the baby needs to eat 12x a day.) Constantly pumping my breasts for a half hour every two hours was so stressful I decided to switch to formula exclusively and I feel immense guilt for it because I know "breast is best." And formula is so expensive, it's $30 for a can the baby went through in less than two weeks and the best quality formula is like $40-$50 a can, which I can't afford, so I also have guilt from not being able to afford the best food for my baby.

I tried that for about two weeks and the situation was causing me to start developing symptoms of PPD so I decided it was better for my baby to stop so I could be more emotionally present.

My milk is already drying up so I think it's too late now to rethink switching to formula. The lactation consultant told me if I had been toughening up my nipples while I was pregnant by rubbing them with a washcloth it might have made a difference but that trying to do that now would just cause them more distress. I will try doing that if I ever have a second child though.

I've looked into it and my income is just barely enough to not qualify for free assistance and paying for breastmilk is also very expensive at about $15 per four ounce bottle.

Thank you everyone for being so supportive, I don't know where else I could talk about this. People definitely wouldn't be sympathetic on other imageboards.

Have they always been so sensitive, or did the problem come about from the pregnancy? Or from the birth?

They've always been a bit sensitive but not like this. This is kind of TMI but for example my husband has sucked on my boobs with the full force of an adult man before with no problem but when the baby was doing it, it felt like someone put binder clips on my nipples and was pulling on them as hard as they could. My nipples suddenly became way more sensitive in third trimester, it started to hurt to wear a bra and tight fitting clothes. I don't know why this happened, maybe it could be due to hormonal changes.

I am so so so sad right now.

I have to leave, I can't stay, I have to but then I regret it so much. I wish I wasn't so sensitive I wish I had a thicker skin but I don't and I accept myself the way I am because I like feeling things I like feeling good and feeling bad and I would kill myself before I stop having emotions but I get so lonely and desperate sometimes. I had so many people who loved me and I loved them too, I loved them with all my heart but I always have to leave I always end up leaving and I always end up hurting people. I can never let them know who I really am because my duty is to help them, not to force them to listen to what happens to me.
I know that when this stops I will feel empty again. I will miss them as I always do but I won't feel as sad as I do now. I can never have them back because there's something wrong with me. That's why I leave. And I haven't hurt anyone in the past few months. But I wish… I wish I wasn't like this. I wish I wasn't the way I am. I like myself. And if I had the chance of changing myself I wouldn't. Because I'll always be alone, and there's nothing wrong with loneliness. It just feels bad sometimes, but I'll always have myself and my imagination

my vagina is broken. I can't get wet or aroused. foreplay feels like nothing. i feel asexual.

i've been off anti-depressant for almost a week now and i feel even more hopeless. they say it can take months for sensation to return, if it ever does. How am I supposed to wait 3 months at the least for function to hopefully return? I just entered a relationship with a great guy and I already feel the tension my condition is putting on our relationship.

At the same time, i'm also on birth control, which can also reduce libido. So it might not even be JUST my anti-depressants and then I'd have to wait another 3 months for the birth control to wear off. And then what? Condoms forever? I hate everything, why is a pill i have to take everyday that's so poisonous to my brain the only decent option. it's not fair. i don't even feel human, what kind of human can't have sex?

I've never really been too interested in sex. my bf is great and he deserves sex but I can't give it to him (other than oral). i pretend that i'm enjoying foreplay and oral because it makes him happy to know that he's doing something for me. i'm trying to hold hope, but he is clearly aroused when i'm alone with him and although he says it's ok, but i know he's sexually frustrated. who wants to date someone who doesn't enjoy sex..

I want my friend back so much I've been stalking his accounts from a catfish and I've talked to him a few times but I want him to know it's me this is so annoying I miss him so much

Anonymous 21296

It's not that deceitful, I told him straight away I was a catfish/fake account and I haven't technically lied to him. It's been 10 months since I last spoke to him and I deleted my social media because he hurt my feelings once
Re-reading what I just wrote I don't actually deserve friends so I'll just stalk him silently

I made the final split from my toxic, emotionally abusive ex, and let him know I was cutting him off. He got really mad, then made a big public post about it on social media, prompting me to send a message explaining why exactly I was leaving. He said something like "I have a lot of things to say, but I don't need to defend myself to you. I don't care anymore, think of me as a horrible person if you want" then blocked me.
Then he texted me (and DM'd from an old account) saying I was right, he was a piece of shit, I deserved better, and he wished me well.
I was just battling with the part of my mind that still clings to him, and then I found a post on another board obviously by him just attacking me, accusing me of using him, finding someone else, saying he wants to """expose"""(?) me. I want to defend myself in the thread, unblock him and order him to say all those things to my face so we can actually talk, anything. I know it's futile, but I don't even have words for what I'm feeling right now. I don't know what to do.

That's exactly what he wants. He wants to provoke you into talking to him. I've been there plenty of times because I'm insecure and people like that LOVE insecure girls. So here's my two cents: The worst thing you can do to someone like that is to not give him anything to twist and manipulate, because that's their biggest power. Anything you say can be ammo because then they can defend themselves, tell you you've got it wrong, sperg out at you, or swear they'll be better. Usually all of the above in a constant cycle. I know being posted about hurts, but you have to understand that no matter what you do, you can't change people's opinion of you, especially on an anonymous board where the entire story is very one-sided. None of this really affects you. Try to not even read it. Absolutely don't engage. If you cut him out, you have to be firm and establish your boundaries or he'll keep doing this forever as long as he knows you'll react. Don't engage, don't justify yourself, don't defend yourself, don't say or do anything. Anything you say or do can and will be held against you. You can't rationalize with someone like that because they're not rational.

strange enough a similar reason to the other anon except we never dated and he posted it in a public place. it has been ages but he still won't stop tormenting me.
>>21348 your advice is godsent I was about to confront him but now I won't.

Anonymous 21351

I'm glad it helped a little, I know it's hard but really the best thing you can do is pretend you're not thinking about him at all. I've just been thinking about this recently because I happened to get in touch with the ex-girlfriend of the guy who treated me similarly. That was 9 years ago. He dated her after me and I found her blog randomly while checking if he was still uploading photos of me or references to our relationship. It was a really bad relationship but most of the crazy shit happened once I finally left. He uploaded photos of me on art sites, wrote poems, did really crazy shit like dress a blow-up doll up as me and take pictures and upload those, tried to sue me for using a self portrait we worked on together after I involved him in my photography hobby and so on. I'm really just scratching the surface because I don't want to make myself too obvious because I'm still paranoid after such a long time. But talking to her really helped because she told me he did the same shit to her down to where she had to pay over 1k in lawyer fees because he continued photography with her to "surpass" me and even copied my photography 1:1 down to the motifs and crop. He did anything he thought would get my attention, be it positive or negative, even outrage was welcome to him because it gave him a hook to reel me back in with. As long as I tried to reason with him, negotiate, try to get my belongings and files from our shared apartment, he'd use that to try to harass me and intimidate me or act kind and sweet to get me to come back. Only once I completely stopped reacting to anything and told him to just keep it, he finally left me alone a few weeks later and got a rebound. Once you see this sort of person for who they are, don't waver and don't relent or they'll use that, too, to make you feel crazy.

Anonymous 21353

That is really what they want with that kind of behavior. This dude used every little thing I told him against me. He must be out of ammo so now he's waiting for me to take the bait and provide him with more. I'll let him starve.

Just sitting here wondering how the fuck I used you. What did I take from you? I gave you all the love I had, put so much effort into making us work and you gave me almost nothing. How am I an opportunist and cheater? What did I gain from all this besides emotional breakdowns, more self-hatred and sadness? You used me to curb your loneliness, ignored my pain and slutted me out. Maybe you did "love" me in your own way, but you sure as shit didn't act like it, and whenever I tried to talk about it, you just said it was your depression and shrugged your shoulders.
I don't owe you anything, and no, I haven't "found someone else". I'm too fucked up to be in a relationship, no matter what you tell yourself to feel better about demonizing me. What I do have is someone who considers my feelings and understands me. I latched on to this person because they were not only in the midst of the situation, they cared. They were there for me.
I'm sorry if you don't have that, but it's not my fault and I don't deserve to suffer. You have a therapist. You have J. You have I. You have all those people you play video games with and blog to on Discord. I have exactly one (1) person, no resources for therapy, no meds for my existing issues, no desire to share personal things on social media, no video game friends/communities, no one else I can talk to. Do you see me trying to hold it over your head? No, because I actually don't think you should be in pain, in spite of everything.
If how you acted, the callousness and racism is your idea of love, then it's bad for me and I don't want it. I thought we belonged together, but I just can't do this anymore. If you bring me pain and you don't have the capacity to care, that means I need to take care of myself. Until you can show me you've changed, address everything that you swept under the rug and grow up, I cannot be around you. Period.
Oh, and stop saying no one can or will ever love you besides me. I've been telling you it's wrong since we were together. It's the most unhealthy fucking mindset. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. If you really are improving yourself, fucking act like it.

Anonymous 21363

crying about 'being used' when none of that happened is a form of manipulation. they can't accept their part on the downfall of that relationship so they adopt a victim role to protect their ego and punish you by making you feel bad and doubt yourself. make no mistake, it's malicious and they know what they are doing.

So I was hospitalized at age 12 for major depressive disorder & put on meds, tried going off them at age 18, had to go back on them age 22, and then age 25 got hit with adult onset schizophrenia and put on meds for it. a bunch of other stuff happened while I was growing up like my father dying, grandma dying, pets dying, house burning down, being homeless, having to work full time and raise my siblings and such, getting raped, getting dumped, losing my job(s), et cetera.

I'm 28 now. last december I suddenly inherited a large chunk of money, so for the first time since I was 18 I don't have to work, and I paid out of pocket for college night classes as I went along, so I only need to take a few more classes to have a degree. I'm living with friends and spend my days fussing over my cat and reading books.

My life has never been this nice, or this easy. Last time I was this carefree I was 16. My little siblings are adults now.

Am I too old to enjoy life, now that I can have one? I'm almost thirty and I feel like I'm just starting out as a person. I lost so much time to mental illness, taking care of my family, and just struggling to survive. Being free to do whatever I want is scary.

Do invest some of that money, like anons said.
And find a nice therapist (not expensive: a nice one, one you really like). A therapist helps you see things in your life that you are unable to see. Like triangulation.

Screen Shot 2019-0…

I'm majorly jealous of my sisters body type. She has a perfect hourglass figure, whereas I have a very straight body - and I hate it. My Mum and Gran both have the same body type as my sister. Literally feel cheated out of a genetic lottery that should have been in my favour. I remember thinking all through my teen years that 'one day I'll grow into that shape' and obviously the day never came.
It's very much a situation where we all want what we don't have; my sister complains about having big boobs and not liking her shape at all. I'm practically flat chested compared to all the women in my family, and as stupid as it sounds, it upsets me.

I mentioned this to my mum and she went on about how I should be happy that I won't 'sag' in the future or have back pain, and how she always dreamed to have a smaller chest when she was younger. But on the other hand, I told her I wanted to lose bit of weight, and jokingly said I was worried about 'losing the little amount of boob I have' and she agreed & said I didn't want to end up with 'fried eggs for breasts'.

…you can tell that didn't reassure me. at all.
Anyway, sorry if this was bit nsfw, or if it was more an insecurity than a vent. I just feel like nobody in my life can relate to my situation. It's something that's kinda on my mind bit recently as I really haven't been loving how I look.

It’s annoying as hell to me that half of 4chan males are trannies now.

I really used to enjoy /fa/ but nowadays there are at least 3 /soc/-tier threads posted by attention-whoring trannies trying to get other men to fap to their crossdressing. And 9/10 threads are spammed by troons asking questions like “how to look feminine in this” with more camwhoring.

Even with all of the anons calling them freaks and telling them to kill themselves doesn’t scare them off because the few thirsty replies from tranny chasers keeps them coming back. Reporting does nothing, and it’s highly likely the mods there are trannies because the complaints get deleted while the offtopic camwhore posts stay.

>inb4 just go to /hb/!

There’s not nearly enough traffic and it’s full of other crap besides fashion that I have no interest in.
I’m also a bulldyke into female androgyny who almost exclusively wears mens clothing and I know full well posting a male fashion thread will get me reeeeed at and banned.

I have no more oxy and I fucking hate it. It was like my refuge from all the stress that came from me having to deal with people…. School… Work, etc. now it's fucking gone.

people are giving me shit because I don't want a relationship with my dad. my mom moved my dad's desk in to the room that used to mostly just be mine. I'm raging. I do not want a relationship with someone I can't respect. This guy told me I "split up" our family because I reported my brother to the police for molesting me. This man fucking told me to "get over" my abuse when I was 13 and the abuse had only stopped 2 years prior to me saying that. I had to see this man plot with my mom over how to get my brother Scott-free and his record sealed because of his actions. My father is rigid in his beliefs and thinks if you don't follow them you are a "fool". I would rather not have a relationship with him. I don't want to deal with feeling drained over and over because of this man's obsession with the merits of masculinity and faux logic.

In this scenario the best option would be to become an extrovert. I know how it feels when a house doesn't feel like home, and when it comes to something like this it's better to just escape outside, instead of into a bottle. If you're lucky you can find a new place to call home. I hate it because I'm so possessive of where I've lived for so long, but that's just the way it is. You're hatred for people will subside the more you learn of them from first-hand experience. Trust me.

It's like I said: they spend so much of their lives bottling up their emotions and obeying social barriers that it's only when they're allowed to be militant (ie sports teams, social faux pas) that they'll go all out. At least on a site like this, you can vent out and speak of your feelings which helps a lot. They just can't let anyone know how they feel. It's uncool. Even on stuff like Reddit they have to put on a guise to gain virtual social credit. It has to come out somewhere.

I'm going to get banned for this, but as a lurker this was the most objectionable thing I've seen anyone write on here.
If I get married and my wife wants to do stuff like this, I'm going to be grateful and happy that she does, and support her every step of the way. My mom was a cheater and a drunkard who neglected me hardcore. Despite that, I made peace with her and forgave her, and now that I'm not bitter about the life other kids got, I realize how much I'd love to make sacrifices to provide that life for my kids, including patiently waiting for the right lady, and court her right, and follow the rules to make sure we're all able to enjoy happy family life.

You sound like you're envious of other people, and instead of being happy for them, you want to make other people miserable like you. Do me a favor and reflect on your hardships, and do your best to forgive the people in your life who hurt you.
