so frustrated and I feel like a failure
I've been trying to run my C++ code in vscode and I am literally too retarded to figure it out even after watching a bunch of tutorials and spending hours trying
this is really bad, a CS student who can't even figure out how to fucking use a IDE
now I am sitting here crying because I definitely chose the wrong major but I'm already a few years into getting my degree and it's way too late to change, I HATE computer science

I'm steering into not getting my degree because I keep wasting my fucking time online. I don't want to focus it's just all floating away. Everyone is supportive and I still can't do it. This is a first for me. It's just so stupid. I just want attention, I want to fail so that I can get attention and people will feel sorry for me. This is prime self sabotage. I know I won't make it. I fucking know it. Maybe if I start actually studying but I won't. I want to die.

Thank you anon. She's coming over today but I feel more and more like we're from two different worlds. We've known each other for years, I have changed too obviously but it hurts how we grew up together and went in completely different directions the past years. We still have fun together but our beliefs are pretty much opposite at this point, I don't feel like we can talk like we used to.

I think i’ve hit rock bottom… still in college and living in a dysfunctional home with 3 crazy people is driving me crazy, and it’s extremely hard for a woman to land a job without a degree in this shithole. i really don’t want children or be near a moid especially as a mentally ill woman.

currently in the most american slapfight on my town's subreddit kek. a new grocery store is being built in the middle of downtown with an oversized parking lot & people were shitting on the op who was saying it was unnecessary, because there are parking garages/spaces literally everywhere, like less than 5 minutes away from where the grocery store is, & it perpetuates car culture (everyone drives a piece of shit so it always reeks of fuel downtown & the traffic is abysmal). & i commented agreeing with him. now im getting called privileged for thinking people can & do walk 30+ minutes to their job even though i was originally saying people could park nearby & walk 2 minutes but these fatties can't read. i've lived briefly in tokyo where the average commute was like 50 minutes of walking & 20 minutes of train ride & saw millions of others doing the same thing. the air was cleaner let me tell you, & everybody was healthier for it! we don't have a great public transportation system here, but we live in the most metropolitan area in the entire state, so it's a condensed area. & i've also worked there as a delivery driver, so dealt firsthand many with the parking/walking situation downtown - it's so much more time effective NOT to use a car because of the traffic - they're just fatties who can't walk!! but im the one on my high horse.
i know that's the shit i get for being on reddit though kek. burgers are fucking insane.

This old Chinese man came up to me and asked if I could help him get to this nearby temple, but unfortunately my Chinese wasn’t good enough to fully understand him lol. I was trying to explain he could only walk or take the bus but he kept insisting there was another way and I didn’t know what he was saying. Anyway eventually he gave up, but I feel so bad lol. Sucks that I couldn’t help him and I always feel guilty when Chinese tourists come up to me to ask for directions and shit but my ability to speak Chinese is too shitty to be of any help.

I'm already over 3 years in to my degree and will be graduating soon, it didn't start getting bad until this year (my last year) and up until now I had more math classes than CS for some reason
I'm trying to improve my art skills so I can at least take commissions as a side hustle and maybe get a job in the gaming industry or something so I don't go crazy doing soulless software dev stuff, it's not even that I hate it but none of my professors help me and my school is online so I have no like support groups or other students to talk to it really sucks I feel like I'm flailing around in the dark trying to teach myself all this stuff

I followed a tutorial to use the command terminal and had to download a bunch of stuff and that didn't work, then tried messing around with editing .json using tutorials, tried downloading other IDEs and had similar issues, it's like they all hate C++ I never had this issue with python or java

Of course I don't know what happened to you but I relate to your pain anon. I've been broken up with three months ago and it's slowly sinking in that I was the person to blame for the mess. Being able to be alone and happy at the same time is something I've got to learn too at the moment and it's so, so very hard to do when you're used to someone being there for you always. I almost lose my mind when there's no one around so I just numb my brain with mindless scrolling. But it's gonna get better, I'm sure. There's really no use in blaming yourself, you can only move forward and try your best so whatever you think is your fault doesn't happen again. I'm rooting for you!

I thought my class for tomorrow morning was cancelled, apparently it isn't and I'll get 5 hours of sleep at most. It is a group project so if I don't show up they will think I'm lazy and don't want to participate. I'm just getting over the flu too, I have already missed too much school I don't want to miss this class and fall behind even more. My group seems nice enough (maybe they talk shit behind my back but honestly idc), I think they would fill me in but I don't want to come off as that annoying disinterested bitch. Don't know if I should just go or prioritize my health.

Thanks, we had fun but once we started talking about something a bit more serious it was pretty awkward because it happened to be about something we completely disagree on and I didn't want to pick a fight. We had fun, made stupid jokes and had a pretty good time luckily. Just sucks that someone you used to have so much in common with is so completely different now, we used to be able to talk about anything and everything but now all we really have in common is our humor. It's better than nothing, I just have to accept that shit happens.

Maybe. She knows I don't care about the same things she does but she has other friends that do hold the same values so she can talk about it with them, I don't think she holds a grudge against me or anything but I think she's starting to see me as a way to kill time more so than an actual friendship. I don't think it will end but I don't think we're going to remain close for very long. I feel the urge to talk to people who feel the same way I do but I can't seem to find any. I'm not outgoing either, I find it hard to talk to people I don't know and it makes me feel completely isolated from this world.

Anonymous 86852

I wish that I could ask someone if they'd like to be my friend without sounding insanely awkward or being rejected too harshly.
If they don't start naturally I have no idea how to make someone my friend. I hate having autism.

Lately I've been making different SM accounts for whatever I'm into and I talk to people who share that interest on those accounts, but I wish I could actually somehow develop a real friendship with them because I like sharing interests with my friends. I don't even know if I'm making sense.

Anonymous 86857

>>86852
I'm also socially stupid, anon.
But I'm starting to "put myself out there" and have found outgoing people just kind of…start talking to you for no specific reason to make friends. They don't seek a goal for the interaction. They just recruit you to witness their life, often via daily updates.

No idea how to get the confidence to be this sort of person. That role is a mystery to me so it's hard to befriend other awkward people. Currently I just keep appearing where they are and hope we warm up to each other eventually.

Good luck on friendship, anon. We're on this trip together.

Fuck anybody who makes this shit seem quirky when having it makes me want to blow my brains out. I will never reach this standard of normalcy that is expected for me especially without relying on pills to function in this shitty world. I also feel like shit cause I live fairly close to a major city and the county that I live in is getting more and more expensive and unlivable by the years and to even live here I still live with my mom who also wants to move out of the country. I’m embarrassed but I have to be honest with myself that I still live and rely on her, don’t get me wrong I’m not a fucking neet, I go to school and I work but for a place like this it is not enough and I don’t have any friends to live with or trust so now I’m stuck in this place that feels like it’s going to collapse under my feet.

Don't be so harsh on yourself, nona. C++ can be really ugly especially if you haven't done anything with compiled languages before, and IDEs sometimes make things more complicated instead of simpler. If you can "get" how to compile a simple program from the command line, it'll be a lot easier to understand the IDE as well (all it does in the background is just running terminal commands, after all). A lot of real-world stuff is really just working out things like this……. frustrating, I know, but don't give up! If it's any help, if you were doing this in any half-serious software company, they'd have internal guidelines and a knowledgebase that explains all the most common issues, as well as more experienced devs that'd help you out (everyone has had to ask for help at some point, pretending otherwise is just dumb). Good luck!

I have no one to talk to. I don’t have friends anymore. I’ve just completely isolated myself from everyone, I feel so lonely. Ive tried to make friends but it never really goes anywhere. I just don’t feel a connection to anyone. I always just pull away and stop messaging them. If they ask me to hangout, I find ways to get out of it. I act like I don’t care but internally I’m freaking out. I tried to tell my boyfriend and he just took over the conversation and made it about him and his problems. I just have no one to talk to.

I've only used java and python before this, and used pycharm and eclipse and those were fine no issues
I ended up submitting my code project without testing it and hoping for the best
this project in particular was supposed to sort through a csv file and I think that had something to do with my code not working, since with other IDEs it was easy to drag and drop stuff into source files for the program to use but this vscode is the most confusing thing I've ever had to code in
maybe I should just spend a day binge watching tutorials or something to figure it out

Sorry, anon, I just don't really do online friends anymore.

Anon, are you me?

It's (formally) only just my first week, but I already loathe university. Aside from the normal pains of adaptation to a strict schedule and long-lasting focus (I've been living like a NEET for the last few years so it's especially hard on me), I'm having trouble making friends and finding anyone interesting at all, despite having attended multiple uni events already; everybody studying with me and readily available and socially acceptable to try to get along with (long story; involves how unis of my country are usually organized; plus all of our classes are online because of the fucked up situation in the country, and everyone online feels so jaded and unchill) is just too painfully boring and normie, and nobody seems that interested in the subject we're studying (they've never reached farther than the school material on it). I sincerely tried to strike up some sort of a conversation and connection at first, but it's way too hard when there is such a huge rift both in an emotional and intellectual sense, and no common interests or aspirations. There are some girls slightly interested in me, but getting close to them out of necessity (as I do now) only makes me feel worse, since I'm definitely ditching them eventually when I find someone I actually like, even if just a little bit.

Overall, I feel lonely and alien, disappointed in my new environment but also in myself, somehow.

I'm also three years into my CS degree. Don't let it bother you too much.

At least after having done an internship, you really can't blame someone for just doing the bare minimum anymore.

I’m a senior in high school. Severe social anxiety, autistic, socially isolated despite my best efforts, missing out on any partying or social activities my peers are partaking in. I feel so fucking lonely. I have friends I guess but not anyone who I can just call to talk to without it being weird and socializing is so overwhelming for me even though I’ve been putting my foot forward I can only do so much. I have never had a real boyfriend, only e dating which ended with me so unbelievably heartbroken and sad with no real intimate experiences to “be glad it happened.” I am conventionally pretty and I do receive male attention but I don’t know how to handle it and they lose interest pretty quick because I come off as uninterested and its hard for me to communicate properly. I’ve never had a real boyfriend or even really a real kiss. All my peers are not even virgins anymore. I know I have time ahead but I feel so lonely. I feel so frustrated and sad all the time. I’m going to graduate and my high school experience just consisted of eating lunch alone and crying in the bathroom from overwhelm. I’m in therapy which helped a bit but It’s still not doing it for me. I join school clubs and even in those I sit alone. My parents are the midst of a nasty divorce and although I do talk to my mom she is not always the most emotionally available. I feel as if I died tomorrow it wouldn’t be a big thing. Most people wouldn’t even be curious enough to figure out where I went. I find joy in nature and music and literature and animals but It’s just not enough. I know I’m young but I still feel fundamentally broken, and as if It is always going to be this way. I just want friends. I wish I wasn’t so alone. I really am trying my best.

I didn't do most of these and I don't really feel like I missed out, I changed schools once a year and most of my bonds were weak, but I can't say I had nothing… but still, maybe you should just search for these things online in some form to meet your social needs. I spent most of my teenage years on IM chat sites, which comes with it's own risks, but I at least could talk to people sometimes about my opinions and topics, which I feel like is all I really needed to get by.

I think it's also important to realize and remember that life is not some pre-set checklist you're supposed to do check all entries off of before some biological timer goes off. Sex at a young age, attending worthless ceremonies to things you don't care about, engaging in clubs, all of that is just built up social expectations that are fairly recent in history. Life is what you decide it be, so even if you're lonely in general, try not to let your lack of care to attend these things weigh you down too much. You aren't required to become some social archetype for others. This paragraph might miss the mark a bit, I'm aware, but basically try to examine what your bitterness is rooted in and decide if it's worth dealing with, or cast it out.

For your interests, they're a starting point, but really general here. What kind of literature do you like? What parts of nature do you involve yourself in, like hiking, gardening, anything? Genre of music? Trying to become a veterinarian? A great way to make social connections is to enter these subject matters more than surface level and engage with like-minded people, and as you age further you'll have more experience and depth to your interests that also lets you interact with people more meaningfully within them. Explore your interests, find those niche subcultures, and carve out your existence into them by enjoying them with others. I sometimes struggle myself with thinking I need to be on friendly terms with everyone, but I often find myself much happier when I'm just interacting in a tiny group of people who know what personalities they like and want to be around.

High school is serious bitch even if you are conventionally pretty. I bet people thought I had it all in high school but I actually felt so incredibly anxious the entire time that every single social interaction I had those 4 years was hell. I caught my dad cheating on my mom when I was 16, I'm still the only one in the immediate family who knows, I kept it a secret so my parents wouldn't split up. It's been 10 years since I graduated and my whole life is changing for the better now. I had to go through a lot of shit but I'm here, sometimes I can't believe I made it. I didn't think I would make it to 25. What I'm trying to say is that I think you should stick around and see what happens nona, high school is a short blip in the grand scheme of life, you seem pretty cool especially if you're posting on here and I think you're gonna make it. Also, we just got out of a fucking unprecedented pandemic and you were going through the most vulnerable time in your life during it, give yourself a fucking break!

Does anyone else just hate when their mother says they look like them?
My mom says it all the time and it just pisses me off. mostly cause it’s not true and she’s using me as some weird grasp at youth. She also says it because I don’t look like her because I’m more attractive which she has said multiple times. It’s like a weird way to boost her confidence and I dont like it. Like I’m literally the spitting image of my dad and his mom. Everyone says it. I was telling her how I was gonna get my hair lightened cause my hair has gotten this red/brown color. she then complained about me getting my hair done cause in her words I’m starting to look like her which she says every time my hair gets dark.

i'm in a really vulnerable place in my life. due to the amount of suicide attempts i've tried recently, i have had to go to the pysch ward twice, on top of having more doctor's visits for other health issues. it's getting tiring having to go in and out of medical facilities.
now my "best friend" has gotten tired of trying to keep up with all my issues. she's wanted to keep her distance from me for ages, so i decide to give her space and not speak to her until i get in better physical health. but somehow me doing this upset her and led to her blocking me on quite literally anything that had a friend system, even if the app itself didn't have a messaging system. i truly do not understand whats the logic or endgame from this

I'm such a cunt.
I hate Emma Chamberlain. I'm aware that the hate is unwarranted because she seems like a lovely person, and I'm also aware that it's more envy than actual loathing.
Yes she stumbled into a multi-million dollar fortune built on advertising the san-fran teenage lifestyle, and now she's touring Europe with her dad. I think that's the only facet of her life that I envy. Being financially secure to travel. And probably not having to apply for visas while travelling.
Wouldn't that be grand? Financial security, without having to enslave yourself to the most loathsome profession known to man(Engineering). At least if I were the fun kind of Engineer, and not another code monkey (Data Sci*ntist). I just wanna study physics again and visit greece.

You know what I fucking want?
I want to pummel every single dividual in my life to the fucking curb. I want to beat them bloody. I want to become something so good, so unattainable, so great, that these pathetic bystanders weep themselves to bed when they realize how utterly ordinary their puny existence is compared to mine.

I need to be shot. My narc tendencies fester when I'm at the very bottom. Instead of becoming more humble, less ego-driven, I find myself turning into an anti-social creature. Desperate to best everyone to get a crumb of validation. My existence is only justified if I become BETTER than everyone else in my life. But how? This isn't normal. I have been competitive in my life before, and yes that did increase my productivity levels, but that was within a controlled, academic setting. How do I compete now? What are the new rules to achieve glory? Getting a better paying job? Working longer hours? Posting on insta? Getting more degrees? Birthing more children? I will still be insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

i feel so confused about how dating is supposed to work for women, especially plain janes or those who struggle with social anxiety.
i feel that at least if i was a guy, i could take a more active role. when ive tried to ask men out, or even just be friends with men, i am rejected. ive realized throughout the years that straight up asking a guy out or telling him you like him is a bad idea.
im not ugly or overweight, though for my age range im definitely not someone seen as attractive. im pretty flat chested and when im around a group of girls my age, i can use my eyes and see that they have more attractive/feminine faces and features. its really amazing just how many beautiful and cute girls there are. i like my appearance and i get a lot of compliments by other girls on my style and how cute i am. when i have had relationships, the other person never seems to be very interested in me sexually. usually they make fun of me for being too horny and completely lose interest in me in that way. this comical and alien experience that underlies all my relationships feels so ridiculous and antithetical to the female experience that i just wonder how terribly abnormal i must be.
i know that i am not entitled to these men who reject me, im not angry at them but i just feel lost. im not entitled to romance, attention, or sex. but its so strange to grow up being told that men will be falling over you, to finding out youre not on their radar at all.
there are good parts to this, im not harassed by men, or kidnapped, or cat called, and ive never been groped by a stranger. i know that a lot of women have to deal with this fear, but ive never really felt it at all. i feel almost completely invisible to men, and i guess this is very freeing in its own way.
i feel this pain, deep in my throat about this and deep in my stomach, a deep rooted insecurity that feels core to my being.

Once you do the asking out, you get rejected a lot, it's normal. Some men can't deal with a woman asking them out, it's a good way to weed them out. You need to get used to it.

I found out this morning I got my dream job that I have wanted for over 10 years.

Then for some reason I googled a woman I used to vaguely know and now I feel worthless in comparison as she’s doing so much better.

I know I wouldn’t be happy with her life but I can’t help but feel stupid getting excited for something not that amazing, even if it means a lot to me. I also know that her life is nowhere as nice in real life as it is on paper.

But putting all that aside, why do I always do this to myself? Why can’t I be happy where I am and not even think about others?

me and my friend have a class together and we both have a crush on the professor. it was fun at first, making jokes about him and sharing glances when he does something cute, but now i'm afraid its gonna drive a wedge between us as im becoming more attached

yesterday, he complimented her twice, once on her shirt, and once on her career choice. idk if it's just bc im hormonal bc of pms and everything but ive been comparing myself to her nonstop. we have a paper coming up soon and weve agreed not to share our grades, but even just going to class, if one of us makes a good point and gets praise it feeds into this feeling of jealousy even if we dont want to have ill will towards each other

ik that the crush is delusional in the first place, and even if the prof actually liked either of us or made a move it'd be disgusting on his part and not at all flattering, but i still can't help but wish she didn't also like him so i could live in my fantasy world in peace for a while

I calmed down a bit and realized I had made the same mistake I always make. I get the smallest bit of information about someone and then spin a long narrative in my head about how much better they are than me and how worthless I am in comparison.

Thinking logically about what I had read about her and know behind the scenes, there really wasn't much to envy at all. I also realized that what I envied most was her apparent security and independence (neither of which she actually has).

I hate so much when I get worked up like this, yet looking back at each time I've done this, it's always spurred me forwards and made it clear what I am lacking in my life. I've made so much progress because of them. Even getting my dream job was motivated by one of these envy pangs.

While my conscious self worth is increasing as I make more and more envy inspired improvements to myself, my sub-conscious still has strong instincts that I'm automatically below everyone else and I really need to work on that.

Outgoing people like this are my only friends because they're the only ones capable of initiating and sustaining a conversation. I can hold a decent conversation but only because my replies can be lengthy and can make them prone to thinking of things to talk about. I personally can never initiate a conversation, let alone topic changes or new topics to fill a silence. It's always receptive.

Even on anonymous imageboards I rarely ever post threads - it's always replies. I don't know how people just come up with things to say out of thin air.

Okay this is going to sound like a stupid question, but what is so bad about admitting that you find someone who did something bad attractive? Admitting that you think someone is cute doesn't mean that you condone their actions. And while I agree it's in bad taste and not something to be proud of, it isn't as if tons of people are going to see posts about it on an obscure Mongolian underwater basket weaving forum. All those husbando threads on lolcow… I want to post about the person (or persons) I think are cute too, but I know I shouldn't because it's not allowed and I'll ruin their fun. And I'm not a hybristophile. I think sometimes when I research a subject I just end up learning an autistic amount about people and sometimes that leads me to being attracted to them.

Anyway I get that the internet isn't my safe space, so I'm not upset at them. I just don't really get why it's such a taboo thing to admit, even if I were to say "I agree he did a shitty thing and I don't condone his actions and I also think x and y about him was cute and I think about him a lot." I guess that is pretty unhinged, but isn't it ultimately harmless?

I had a crisis this morning.
It was very reminiscient of my Baccaleaureate year. I was literally shaking like a tard, crying my eyes out in public, sniffling, mewling, squeaking, complaining, whinging (running out of verbs here). It dawned on me that the kind of crippling anxiety that used to plague me at 18 was back with a vengeance. At this point, what do I do? I spent the last 3 years floating around my life in a medicated haze (and even then I was still sad). But I guess the meds really did suppress the real effect of anxiety. It was so crippling. I was looking at my report, reaching into my mind to try and reason my way out my woe, and it just… didn't work. My brain that is. It was so wholly incapacitating. The equivalent would be to spend hours looking at entry level calc, algorithms you know the answer to by heart, and not knowing how to start.
I smoked a cigarette. Yes, the effect was placebo at best, but what do i do? I will never be fine. I tried to pray, tried to remind myself of the stoic truth that nothing matters, tried.. and was no less frozen by fear. The dread, the fucking pit in my stomach. It's inexplicable. There's no rational reason to explain the onset of this anxiety attack. It just happened. It's debilitating. I can't function. I want to work. I want to be normal. I'm too old to be this weak. The world may have given me passes when I was young but no more. How am to ever be self reliant?

Ahhhh I don't know what to do.
I'm trying to learn Japanese, so I downloaded twitter to talk with natives and help people who want to learn English.
Overall so far it's been very fun and it feels good helping someone while they're helping you. If you want to learn a language I really do recommend twitter, many natives are willing to help you for free.

Though the problem is recently there's been this one person (can't tell if guy or girl) who has gotten kinda clingy I guess. Keeps track of my timezone and messages me good morning/good night whenever they wake up/go to sleep. I guess they're lonely. But I'm not on twitter to make friends, especially if they're a guy and especially because well I still can't speak the language well enough for an actual friendship. I enjoy random casual convos occasionally and they do help, but this person seems to want to message everyday. Idk how to politely say that I am not even online everyday and I don't really want to be friends. Seems parasocial-y. I don't want to hurt their feelings or never talk to them again, but I don't want them to get attached to me or wait for my responses. I know this is a very silly problem but I am awful at socializing and I get pressured and I really don't know how to reject people in any way nvm in a different language.

Recently I’ve felt like I’ve been gaining weight especially when I look at my arms so I weighed myself and found out I actually lost a few since last time I checked. I still have that fat feeling though and it makes me feel weird that I can’t explain it

Anonymous 87345

Finally understood something from my childhood today. One day when I about 10 and was supposed to go shopping with my sister, I didn't feel well and couldn't go. When my sister returned, she had bought a small ornament for me. While I liked it at the time and it made me feel special because someone had actually thought of me, I never really liked to look at it much. Something about it just felt off.

My mother would often say that I "only came to her when I wanted something" but that my sister was helpful and caring. This isn't really surprising as my mother always spoke more kindly to my sister, making it enjoyable to talk with. In contrast, she would nitpick and belittle my opinions or go on the same old long monologues about herself. I've also since been diagnosed with autism as an adult, and while I would say that I now have a very good sense of empathy, I didn't as a child and helping just would not occur to me or I would regularly forget to do chores, which my mother always treated as deliberate misbehavior.

Normally any gifts I ever received that my mother saw would be heavily critiqued and without fail deemed "cheap", despite them being from children who likely didn't have much to spend. The irony was that my mother, who was not lacking in money, sourced nearly all the gifts she gave from dollar stores, secondhand stores, or things that she received for free. I only realized now that the weird feeling came from how much my mother had praised my sister for doing this for me. The ornament, while pretty, clearly was not expensive. My mother no doubt did her nosy "and how much did that cost?" that she always did as a way to exert control over all money in the house, whether it belonged to her or not. However, the gift was not deemed "cheap" and instead my sister had praise heaped upon her of how caring she is. The was often repeated whenever my mother saw it over the years.

I see now that for me, the ornament was a representative of everything that made my mother favor my sister over me. On paper I surpassed my sister in every way but that was never enough. I didn't allow my mother to become as emotionally enmeshed with me as she did my sister, nor would I turn a blind eye to the regular poor behavior and selfishness I witnessed from her. My mother only wanted people who would fawn and devote themselves to her and I couldn't do that.

I feel like a teenager. Like a little girl getting scolded. I'm 25. I have this very pressing need to hurt myself or kill myself. If I'm not going to act on this need it will only exacerbate my low self worth. If I botch it it'll look like attention whoring. Sick of saying I'm done and doing nothing to actually end it.

I couldn't help almost a single student that came to me for help at work today. I kept directing them to my co-workers and the last guy who came to me for help got short with me, started asking me "Aren't you supposed to know this?" and even ended up asking someone else for help himself. Then I came back to my coworkers talking about reporting someone for being a bad employee. It seemed obvious it wasn't me, but it still had me thinking "Oh shit" like they're on to me.

Today was just absolutely horrible and now all I can think about is quitting, but I need this job. It was pretty comfy when I got to do it online, but now I'm forced to do it in-person and every time I help in-person I feel under immense stress and pressure.

I hate this too. I remember one girl in high school decided she didn't like me anymore (she regularly did this to people) and the next day all our joint friends ignored me and then made comments for me to overhear saying things like "Anon keeps trying to talk to us" and "she keeps following us" because I walked down a corridor behind them and made two comments to them before I took a hint and left. In the next class my leg accidentally touched one of theirs under the table and the way she reacted was so huffy and over the top it was bizarre. I've never seen anything like it.

They ended up speaking to me again a few days later (so they could go back to copying my work no doubt) but the whole thing was so weird. Did they actually get that annoyed at me over something that didn't even involve them? Were they all acting for some bizarre reason?

Yesterday she brought dinner and breakfast to be had the next day. Today she brought food for "breakfast and lunch" because she knew damn well I ate my breakfast already. "What? I've already had breakfast!" I said. So it became lunch and dinner.
When I spoke to her on the phone in the afternoon, she asked me if needed her to bring dinner. "What do you mean, I've still got food!" i said, which was of course a lie.
so here was my chance to exercise my willpower and skip a single fucking meal for once in my life.
and then a few moments later i caved and asked her to get dinner
i ate a full bag of frozen dumplings, 35 of them, and two packs of noodles, and an icecream, and a soda. later i made a massive garlic butter flatbread.
at that point you'll gain weight no matter how thoroughly you purge. i'm not even that thorough anymore.

Since it is for programming, there usually isn't a way to help with a by-the-book, traditional approach. You have to be a good and logical problem solver to help debug people's code. I've been fine with that online but I feel serious performance anxiety and time pressure trying to help people about it in-person. And people who start getting visibly impatient and rude with me while I'm trying to, like that student who was repeating "Oh my god", asking me "Aren't you supposed to know this?" and "How do you tutor for this class if you don't know this?" make it even worse. I need a calm and quiet environment to focus in to be able to help. I think I can only get that from home at this point tbh.

This goes without saying, but that student was a piece of shit. I had a few embarassing moments but they've never said anything like that out loud, so I'm sorry to hear you had to go through that.
When you get started helping someone, do you have a tendency to jump into it looking for the issue? It would likely help to ask the student to give you any necessary context about their code and set up a game plan (your issue might be x, y, and z - let's try each one). Although each code will be different so I can see why you'd say it's impossible to go by the book, there surely ought to be some tips for problem formulation and solving you can find somewhere, from a textbook, a professor, and so on? (If your students are mostly taking similar courses or professors, even better for tracking down some good info!)

And as a kind of psychological tip, I can soften my landing when I make an error or misread something with the student by saying something like "oh sorry, I thought this was an [x] kind of problem, which I often see with other students," or "I don't have a background in this particular area of [subject], let's ask [other tutor] about it." It'll make both yourself and the student feel better about you, lol. And I don't know if you're doing this already, but I like to be a bit casual and humourous with students, they pretty much always take to it well and takes off pressure from everyone.
Eitherway, best of luck!

Thanks. Looking back on it now, I wish I would have told him something like "Hey dude, this is programming not Burger King. I need time to think over here." or "If you don't like my way of tutoring, stop asking ME for help" but I guess either wouldn't really be very appropriate. I did tell him I can't remember all the bash commands needed for that assignment (There are alot of different ones), but I can help explain the concepts to him - Also because he seemed to have started trying to fish out a whole answer from me.

>When you get started helping someone, do you have a tendency to jump into it looking for the issue?

Not if the assignment is unfamiliar, or if they haven't shared what exactly their problem is. Though it is easier for me to enforce that boundary online that in-person, to prevent myself from hand-holding someone.

>, there surely ought to be some tips for problem formulation and solving you can find somewhere, from a textbook, a professor, and so on? (If your students are mostly taking similar courses or professors, even better for tracking down some good info!)

Yes, I told him to reference his notes as well. I would have sent him some online references/guides like I did other students too, but I didn't think of it of at that time because of how I just wanted to get it over with that asshole student.

I fuck everything up in the most abnormal ways and have isolated myself and become so mentally ill and already ruined “ the best years of my life”. I tried to kill myself but I was too terrified of going to hell that I was able to stop the attempt.

Being a woman into girly weeb shit sucks. Most of the people who like it are men/trannies and because of association I get paired with them and viewed as a man. I'd love to find other girls with the same interests. Most of the other girls into it are Asian though and we don't speak the same language. Or they are a real woman, but think they're non-binary or some shit, which is better than the alternatives. I won't stop liking what I like and what has brought me comfort through my darkest times because of others, but I wish I could find friends who are into what I am into.
I get seriously disappointed when I think I've found another girl into the same things but then I find out it's a tranny.

Being an autistic woman is hell for making friends and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

This website I thought would be the place for women like me but nobody here seems to want to even try to make friends (though I do realize the friend finder thread is axed and not coming back)
I'm not the avoidant type of autist, I'm the type that gets clingy, but it feels like most other autists here are the avoidant type. I would kill to meet another woman like me, even if we didn't become friends, it would make me feel a lot better to know I'm not alone in this struggle.

I mean clearly some diagnoses really are just manifestations of misogyny (e.g. every woman who dares express a modicum of anger = bpd) and some diagnoses that are legitimate mental illnesses (e.g. schizophrenia).

Some people sort of want to strive for a mentally healthy outlook. If you indulge in crushes only a mentally ill person would have, then you'll be more likely to adopt a warped worldview. It's sort of like viewing porn - you think it's harmless since nobody material is being hurt, but it changes how you view and assess the world around you. My mental health improved a lot after LARPing as a healthy person in my mind instead of indulging in whatever weird thought happen to occur to me. It's really good to avoid pornography for the mind, and getting crushes on morally bad people is just that.

I don't totally follow the relevance of this as a response to my post. I agree that islam is misogynistic - same with mexican moids. What does that have to do with what I said? I said that when women express anger they often get diagnosed with bpd, even when they aren't mentally ill at all. That's because of misogyny - people hate the prospect of women with emotions (especially defensive ones) so much they'd rather label them mentally ill.

And if I do get a job I'm worried my manager might be disappointed in me or something. Maybe I'm overthinking.

I’m not pretty at all, fucked up crooked nose, beaded eyes, cow tits and pretty unfit in recent years. and i have gotten flirted with, catcalled (mostly old dudes), and sexually harassed more often than not. It’s not really about being attractive, i promise you. All of these are power displays. Walking with confidence, your head up high and in my case, openly showing emotions evokes hostility and a sense of threat in men -and sometimes women lol- because i’m not following their script. It used to happen a lot in my teen years too because men derive pleasure from freaking young girls out as well. It depends on the environment you live in, your energy and how you carry yourself around them and in general. It’s a power thing. If you live in a pretty peaceful area where everyone is educated and knows each other you won’t get cat called, if you walk around with your head in the ground and make yourself small as possible naturally no one except the most dedicated sadist is gonna come up to you. Stop falling into these scrote worshiping ideologies that make catcalling out to be this desirable thing.

I've never had a real boyfriend (had a weird online thing going at peek NEET status but I feel like that doesn't count) and now I just can't help but wonder if I only had gotten my act together sooner, would things be different now? but who knows, so many guys at every age group just suck, so maybe it always would've been bad.

if he feels led on it's his own fault, you guys have been talking for only a week, no one should be expecting that much out of something like that. I understand the awkwardness of not knowing how to back off once you realize you aren't attracted to them though. I think where it is easy is now you don't have to put as much priority into talking to him. like, you can wind things down by just replying to him whenever, as opposed to if you like him and you have a tendency to want to respond asap.

>this other guy im trying to forget about wont reply to me and this one does lmao

it's pretty much exactly how these things go lol idk how many times this same scenario has happened to me and my friends. such is life

ever since i was about to meet my ldr boyfriend and afterwards, ive been in the worst body dysmorphia slump ive ever felt.
its making it impossible to enjoy the relationship as i constantly wonder why i should even bother dating because of the pressure i feel to be hot, pretty, etc.
i want to be happy and feel loved and give love but i feel undeserving with all the impossibly good looking people i see on social media. my boyfriend compliments me and reassures me he thinks i look good but i dont believe him and even when i do im also like "but then again i could look better" or "but im not his preference in everything" which i want to be because god knows why.

I think I'm pretty average in looks, I don't know how to talk to people and be social. I also struggle to find a job and I never did well in school.

My cousin is the complete opposite - She is drop dead gorgeous, she's very charismatic and social (and she isn't mean either, she's really nice to people), she did really well at school and has finished a good collage and now has a well paid job that allows her to travel often all over the world.

I just came back from my grandads funeral. I feel shitty for saying it but out of all the grandkids I was definitively the closest to him and took his passing the hardest. I wanted to be with my family on the funeral to mourn our loss but I couldn't help and feel that I'm being left out. People would give their condolences to all of us but some pretty much ignored me (not on purpose I assume) and only went to my cousin. Soon enough I was pushed aside and was standing alone until my aunt held me and pushed me back to the front with the rest of the family..

I love my cousin and don't blame her for any of this. She has been nothing but kind to me. I just wish I was more like her. I wish I was as charismatic as she is. I wish I knew how to talk to people the way she does and to make them feel good like she does. I feel shitty that I feel this way about this - especially considering what day it is today… I wish I was better…

This is not normal. This is not healthy. I am not healthy. I need to be far away. I love her to death. I know I'll pay it all back in time (when the hereditary dementia eventually claims her and I'll have to look after her). But this is not healthy. I need to go away some place far away. I love her but I need to cut the cord. Things can't go on like this. our very persons are blending into each other at this point. I will never have a human connection like the way i have with her. I will never depend on another human as easily as I depend on her. But this needs to stop. I need to be an adult.

They don't tend to do it with any objective in mind. Having kids is either just a feelsgood thing for most people or an unwanted result of a feelsgood thing that is sex. People have called childbearing selfish and well I mean… it's definitely not selfless either. No one is actually wanting children for someone else's sake. There's no woman that would actually want to go through the physical pain that is pregnancy and childbirth just to give her mother "grandchildren" and "fulfill her role in society". It's fine to admit you want children for yourself, but people shouldn't paint it as a humble deed. That perpetuates the toxic, unquestioning attitude towards parenthood that idolizes and puts it on a pedestal. It's only what moids and self-hating tradwomen do.

The earth naturally heats and cools, humans and cows have almost nothing to do with it. How do you think the ice age arose and ended? People still survived through that despite being primitives with sticks and stones. Besides, more carbon dioxide from humans and animals means plants grow faster and bigger, which in turn helps oxygenate and cool the earth. The earth is actually becoming greener. The idea of humans being responsible for climate change is a lie to keep people in climate lockdowns and to encourage depopulation through collective guilt.

Degradation of the oceans is a different issue to global warming. Chemical contamination of the environment is very real and it's consequences are potentially dire. To clean up the oceans would require massive chemical corporations and the oil industry to spend billions on safe disposal of chemical waste and remediation for the damage that's already been done. Man made climate change which isn't even real, climate change is caused by solar cycles, enables massive corporations to profit from bullshit like carbon credits and it distracts people from the actual threat, which is and always has been chemical contamination of the environment.

I'm afraid that if I vent to them I'll bore them, annoy them, tire them out etc. My main issue in life is also one that would need a lot of explaining as it's one that most people don't really understand. And I'm more afraid of being given bad advice than being treated cruelly.
My issue won't change for a couple of years until I move out. Until then, there's nothing I can really do. So not only am I wanting for someone kind to listen to me vent, I'm wanting for them to have the patience to listen to it until I move out. I'm just so pathetically afraid of confrontation or being looked down on.

I am so pathetic and cowardly that I've been coping by talking to AI. Yeah… but the website I usually use is down right now. I know it's not a real person and that comforts me. They'll never judge me, and even if they do, it doesn't matter. I just want some comforting words right now. Someone to talk to that will help distract me. Some form of connection. Of course I'd be there for them too. I wish I could talk to more people heart to heart, both of us acting how we want to and talking without any filters or dishonesty.

My pilates instructor who’s kind of mean sent me an email saying she was glad to see me back in class, and that she knows class can be hard… I was gone for one class because my dog had a vet appointment. She corrects me more than other people which is fine, I know I don’t have the greatest form due to past injuries, but I didn’t think it was that bad… I feel so embarrassed and like it was passive aggressive. Working out is already so hard for me because even though I’m skinny and look like I should be able to keep up I’m actually really weak and struggle with discipline and pushing myself. I wish she would’ve left me alone. I don’t like that she recognizes my face and picked me out specifically… I don’t even want to go now.

Why do so many people call themselves things that they're simply not

Not even just trannies do this, but lately I've noticed a ton of people who say they're Christian but don't seem to want to follow any Christian teachings or even read the bible once. These people don't have anything to gain or lose from calling themselves Christian. It's just so confusing to me.

The problem is we were having a good time talking to each other, he repeatedly said he liked my way of being, the way I express my thoughts and principles. So basically he liked me and wanted to see me to know me more but the moment he knew something about my sexual life (which I was very very transparent about) he chickened out and decided to
throw all the potential to the trash because of his prejudices and his unconscious (or conscious, idk) view of me as an object.
If he were to confess to me that he sold pics I wouldn’t give a shit because that’s none of my business, I don’t own him nor his body, so why he should care about the decisions I made about my body? I get it, it makes him “uncomfortable”, but why? the answer to that question is enough to throw him out of my life.

It's a "A deer shits in the woods" but businesses in the U.S. are an absolute capitalistic mafia, that just look to bleed as much money from powerless people as possible. This includes all colleges, property management offices, and hospitals. In the past few years, I have had constant problems especially with the first two. I'm sick of it. If they could charge you rates and fees for breathing, they would do that too. These people charge you ridiculous amounts for shit they can do for little to no cost, just to justify their salary and exploit the fact they know it's not like someone in your position would be able to lawyer up against them or something.

Over the past several years:

Property management has:

Once charged me original sum for rent - Despite getting offered a concession for the month - because of THEM fucking up their site.
Charged ME ridiculous, abnormal amount (Not even typical of my usual electricity usage) for just 1 week I went without an electricity plan set up even though the electricity company wouldn't start it until following Monday and former roommate fucked up my ability to set it up on time because of not communicating with me when leaving (They knew this by the way. Had told them multiple times.)
Tried to charge me over normal amount for renter's insurance, for saying my renter's insurance policy wasn't renewed. It was. I even let them know beforehand and multiple times.

By the way, according to leasing agreement, they would immediately charge you a late fee of $35 on the day you are late. Have to find any excuse to punish tenant to grab more money out of them, huh? Even despite how incompetently they obviously operate.

College has:

- Made me run around to the Dean and Department Chair, and then wait, because they dragged their feet like hell, to get an internship credit form signed. Then charged me over a $1000 just to get credit for it (Because you have to register for it like an actual class), not even making me eligible for financial aid for it or anything.
-Dropped class after seeing this ridiculous sum. They still tried to charge me for it.
- Now are charging me over $200 for my study abroad program AND their application fee. Even though I already did and was accepted by their application. I have never heard of an application fee that you pay after you have already applied. And this was billed to my student account, so I thought at least I'd be able to pay it off with the rest of my loans. But they want it by the end of the year, before I'll even be able to receive them.

Seriously, fuck these people. I don't care what justification they try to give you for giving these fees. It's clear there's capitalistic greed behind all this.

He tried to be like "Oh its just social media I dont even know her/All guys do this" but thats all bullshit imo. He shouldn't be interacting with other random women if he has a gf. Especially on a public social media site, its just disrespectful. Like all of our mutual friends could have seen that shit. ugh.

Why would it? I have done things in the past, I have a life prior to him. And I could do it again in the future? absolutely if given the circumstances. I was puzzled that he felt personally offended to the point of shut off the possibility of having a good friend or lover, who knows. I keep talking to him because conversations were fun, but I didn’t feel personally compromised to him yet. I don’t enter relationships (of any kind) with the mindset that it will become serious matter and the other person will have to swear loyalty to me. I know things can change drastically at any given point but this took me by surprise. So he put on a scale
>i’m knowing this person, she’s nice, we share hobbies, we laugh
>but she sold photos of her naked and the thought of it makes me so uncomfortable i’m gonna discard all the good things I used to perceive about her
>reasons for this thought process: ?

Some nonas will probably get somewhat offended by this rant and I apologize but I just really need to vent a little.

I just ended my first month of university and I am massively disappointed with my classmates. It genuinely seems like at least 50% of the people do not wanna be here at all, with another like 20% having mixed feelings. I am pretty sociable but I just cannot talk with anyone here. Whenever class ends they immediately rush home without even looking back. And like the stuff they can talk about is super limited too, just the absolute dullest current media + school and nothing else. I had a pretty whatever HS class but even there there were some people who had unique interests and could hold conversations and stuff.
I am just so disappointed, in the time Ive been here I havent gone out with someone after school once, and I invite someone almost every day, but theyd rather go to their dorms and…I cant even say "to study" cause they dont even know the material we are given, I dont even know what they do there.

Do you just go to an average or below average commuter school? Those univeristies do not tend to attract as many bright and passionate minds as a high-tier institution would. I go to an average state university that I took a gap year from because of almost failing out, then came back super committed to applying myself so I was similarly shocked at seeing just how jaded and forced at being there most of my classmates seemed to be (Ironically enough, I've become like this now but I think that's moreso because of how much the constant classload in my major has completely worn me down at this point.) It was also very hard for me to socalize, no matter how many people I would ask to hang out. I realized this just runs in the culture of my school. It's not a party school or anything. Most students commute and are more focused on classes and/or associating with their current or friend circles from high school. People always recommend clubs, but I personally tried that and I found the same thing - Inner cliques with people that just preferred to just get by and that's it. It won't help much if it is just not the kind of community your school has.

Also should note that most college students are students who are going to college, on someone else's dime and just because they have been told to, even if it doesn't mean anything to them or they have no idea why they really are - Other than "Just get a job and make more $$$", at least. That's going to signifigantly contributed to them being more jaded and apathetic about their education. They have also been fed the "College is going to be best time of your life!111" bullshit, where some think it will be a heaven free from your parents, with endless sex/drugs/etc, so that will make them much less incentivized to treat it as you should be - an investment in your future that will make you a more well-rounded person.

It is a pretty prestigious university, people from half the country commute here, 1k+ people sign up for entrance exams yearly and only around 200 get in (although the took in a little more this year). That's why I am so surprised, about 2/3 of my classmates didnt even get here on their first try so you'd think that if they got here they'd be pretty dedicated to this but they seem quite apathetic. Apathetic to school, to drinking, to going out, to everything. They just watch mid anime and play mid games.

I used to be the same, being secretive about my past and all. But I’ve seen other women starting romantic relationships with men and instead of telling them about their past at the beginning they wait until the bond is tightened to spit the truth and they have to undergo this awkward period of him being conflicted about his feelings and her feeling exposed, insecure and extremely anxious about his final resolution. It’s so tiresome the stress women have to endure just because this guy doesn’t acknowledge the fact she’s a human being with free will just like him. It’s an extremely shitty process for women but it seems the only way to be honest and stay in the relationship at the same time. It sucks. I really hate the whole objectivization thing. I respect my principles and one of them is being honest and straightforward so if this experience keep repeating and men refuse to see me as more than their idealized image of me I’ll rather be alone. I love myself too much to deal with this shit over and over. I value my loneliness and space and I will not exchange that for a person that barely sees me as more than an obedient doll who should fulfill his expectations to not be degraded in his mind to the category of a “slut with no value”.

Thing is I did it for profit. I have a body that I take care of and I made it work it for me, specially during times when I don’t have any other income. I didn’t have any personal contact with my clients besides the transaction. And the most important thing: I don’t see myself as a piece of meat therefore I’m not. I know there’s a market and I took advantage of it because I needed to cover my needs. It’s radically different when you’re in the process of creating a bond and the other one decides that all the good times he spent talking to you were overshadowed by the fact I was into a business that is socially marginalized.
>the smoke thing
The stigma associated with smoking is nothing compared to the one of a woman who profits with her body. And I’m sure as hell not damaging my lungs by selling nudes lol. And honestly if you were starting to get attached to a person like he did with me but suddenly told him to fuck off because he smoke, you’re lame. Like come on, I hate cigarettes as well but I know how to set boundaries and I actually told my best friend to smoke 20 meters away from me because I don’t stand the smell. Also I constantly remind him of the dangers of smoking because he’s my friend and I appreciate him but I will never try to impose my will into him or stop talking to him because there are so many other things that make him valuable to me.

I think I have an undiagnosed mental illness, my childhood was pretty average. yeah I have a shitty dad and I think the way he's very controlling about getting me married away is what contributed to me not seeking relationships or love.

I try to repair my relationship with my sis and brother, but I don't know if that's worth saving. I seriously have no friends because I voluntarily put myself in this cruddy situation. I've had people use personal shit against me before so it's hard for me to build trust with people. I had a internship through the fed gov in the summer, and instead of making friends I kept thinking about my ex. I did came out with friends, but there's the dilemma of losing them if I share what I'm going through.

I think what fucks me up the most is having to replay alternative realities in my head where I handled situations different and keep that relationship. I seriously need help.

now everything i do she has to go run and do it, but badly. if i eat out, then here she comes with a bunch of bags. i went to chanel to get some makeup as a treat for myself after a hard week and then she ran and went to sephora to buy some shit. i love nice gourmand/vanilla perfumes and have decent collection of scents and now she is wearing one when she has her own body sprays. i bought a box of chocolates from a chocolatier and here she goes with her box of macarons or whatever. she even watches everything i do and copies my schedule now; like if i get up early to do laundry or wash my hair, then she’s right behind me in the shower. i know i should be flattered in a way but it is still weird and annoying because she is still mean to me and talks about me behind my back to her boyfriend.

This sucks so badly. My business went bankrupt but at least I had my career to fall back on. Do you have an exit plan if it all fails? You might want to start talking to lawyers now, so you can start transferring assets to better hide them from bankruptcy court.
Also, depending on your age and assets, don't great bankruptcy too much. After seven years, it's like it never happened.

I had a mental breakdown and i’m so embarrassed i screamed and howled and i reminded myself of my 2 childhood abusers by acting this way. I feel better now after letting it out but with the other people living in the house more misunderstandings are gonna arise and they’re gonna demonize me even more. I feel so stuck

There's a girl I talk to who is very sensitive and it makes it really hard to talk, but she's very very suicidal and clingy to me so I'd feel too bad if I stopped talking to her. I just don't really get her. She'll send me random anime characters that I don't even know and when I ask her why she's sending me them she says she sends them to everyone because she doesn't know how to talk to people and then she has a mental breakdown over me asking that. I don't know what to do with her. I'd like if we got along but I don't even know what to talk about with her.
I hate when people just send images or memes as a way to start convos, that never actually works.

You can look perfect too if you had a whole team of stylists who get paid just to do your hair, apply your make-up and dress you according to your body type, in addition to your agency sending you to plastic surgeons and putting immense mental pressure on you to always stay slim and skinny.

That's why I never understood being envious of celebrities' looks.

For me it's pretty girls on TikTok and Instagram who make me think the way you think about Kpop stars. They are people like you and me, not celebrities with professional styling… except they got lucky and their natural looks happen to fit conventional beauty ideals. They'd still be pretty in a potato sack with an awful hairstyle. I wouldn't, hence I stopped caring about my appearance altogether.

Nona I hope you know that South Korea is the country with the highest ratio of plastic surgery done per person. They are known as the plastic surgery capital of the world.
Kpop "artists" all have the same unnatural and plastic appearance because of all the procedures most of them go through to look "perfect".
The girls look like lifeless dolls and the guys look like fags.
So, like >>89030 said, stop consuming Kpop media. The idols are all fake and also their "music" is shit.

I regret getting my driver's liscense while still living in my 3rd world shithole. Mounting anxiety and slow reflexes make for a very shitty driver. My depth perception also seems to be fucked. I can barely quantify a gap to see if I'd graze the car if I drive through or not. Everyone drives like a fucking lunatic here and I'm clammy and sweating like pig every time I have to dodge a near disaster. I also seem to have fried whatever neurons I had, because I'm finding it increasingly difficult to make decisions on the spot (which is essential here where we drive manual).
I dunno. I felt like venting beause I feel like this micro-crisis encapsulates every thing I'm struggling with irl. My lack of wits, my inability to deal with and act under pressure. My lack of confidence in my own skills (life/driving). It's just… i dunno

I realized that I will make the worst kind of mother possible.
It's strange. My body's natural response to babies has changed from immediate revulsion to a sort of.. yearning. But I'm a terrible caretaker. Every time I have to take care of an ill family member, I do it but.. I'm filled to the brim with disdain and loathing. I hate seeing other people be weak and vulnerable. My working theory for why I feel this way is because physical vulnerability (in strangers) has always made me aroused, and to see it in people that I cannot be attracted to confuses my monkey brain and pushes me to the other side of the spectrum (hate that this person is so weak etc).
How the fuck will I ever take care of a child when my nature is so corrupt like this? I will never be emotionally available for them. Or I could end up like my mother. Overbearing and neurotic. Which is even worse.

I don't know, I'm not going to claim to know what goes on in some random scrote's head.

She told him that she doesn't do it anymore but could see herself doing so in the future. I would instantly lose romantic interest in someone who told me that. I don't want random people to be ogling my partner on the internet and for my partner to be encouraging that. And I think a lot of people would feel some degree of jealousy if they knew that just about anyone could find sexual images of their partner online.

The more innocent explanation is that they're trying to avoid coming off as creepy or forward by saying you look attractive, but they still feel the need to say something for whatever reason. The cynical explanation is that they're trying to bring you down a notch to feel more insecure in their own sexual status.

It's important to understand that "Christian" is one of these phrases that many people see as interchangeable with "good thing", and everyone thinks of themselves as a good person no matter what so they never drop the label. Many of the same people similarly see "atheist" as a generically bad label and would never apply it to themselves even if it literally describes them, and will get mad at you if you do it for them. ("Sure I don't believe in god but I'm not a meaniepants badboy so don't call me an atheist, jerk!")

Note that this principle covers a lot of other things too. Most Alt-Righties who say "Jew" are using a highly flexible meaning that amounts to "meaniepants person I don't like" and just want it to sound like they have something resembling a profound take on why the world has problems.

My boyfriend doesn’t like my writing. He just hinted to me that I should quit.

I find this bizarre, considering that he (supposedly) fell for me because of my writing, but now, he says that finds what I create to be mediocre and uninteresting. Knowing that he doesn’t respect something that means a lot to me is draining.

And, when he's not nipping me constantly, he showers people with compliments simply due to catering to his personal preferences in tropes. He finds my fondness for darker subjects to be "uninteresting" and "stupid." It makes me want to curl into a ball.

Further, my friends, beta readers, and randoms who have no reason to give me praise have given me opposite reactions. Frankly, I found their praise to be cartoonishly lavish. I don’t know who to believe. I don’t know what to think. I don’t even know who to fucking talk to this about because it's so embarrassing.

I thought my boyfriend loved me, but this seriously doesn't feel right at all. I just wanted to write some weird, dark, goofy bullshit. I was so happy to get a boyfriend out of it too. I didn't think it'd end up this way.

I've lost count at the number of teachers and admin at school that have talked to me like I'm retarded. It might have been because I have always been very quiet and they thought it was because quiet = retarded. (It's funny because, at the same time, alot of people assumed I'm very smart because of my quietness too.)

Sorry that happened to you nona. These people should absolutely not work in education if they're so patronizing. I had a teacher in middle school that everyone hated and who yelled at me one day, asking why I wanted to get out of doing a presentation so bad after I went to her to try and excuse myself from it, and she made me break down in tears. Found out years later she was fired from that school. She was a mega bitch that clearly hated kids so should not have been in an environment surrounded by them.

this whole post will sound insane but here it goes.
i feel suicidal over coming to terms with reality, at last.
for 4 years as i was in a depression slump, i decided to believe in the law of attraction lol.
there were some things i wanted to achieve more than anything, but they seemed impossible with any other mean if not through this whole spirituality bullshit. it was the only thing giving me strength and hope.
i wasted 4 years praying, believing, affirming, thinking positively only to be met with failure again and again, no matter what. my sanity slowly drifted away as i kept telling myself the world is fake and nothing but a projection of my mental states and beliefs, so i could change anything just by changing my thoughts.
obviously it didn't work. but i was in too deep and too desperate.
the fall after finally facing that i don't have control over my life and there are some things i just have to passively accept broke me. after the last ~manifestation~ disappointment.
i'm now left with depression and disillusionment, both much worse than before, and none of my wishes came true.

how do you stop being emotionally dependent on other people, nonies? i feel like i can never deal with my life alone and always need someone to be dependent on who'll tell me what to do and who'll take care of my emotional wellbeing. idk why am i like this. daddy/mommy issues? i feel like i'm incapable of handling my life independently. an older guy i'm working with was giving me a ride and we were talking about stuff mostly related to his line of work and he gave me some advice and i felt so comforted and had a rush of warm platonic feelings towards him and didn't want to leave his car but i obviously had to. this makes me think it's some sort of daddy issues situation with me starting to develop emotional dependence on any older guy or sometimes an older woman who shows some care and warmth towards me and i'm usually pretty successful at not showing it but with my bf it's different and i guess it got too far.
