I prefer to support local businesses, but if the staff and owners refuse to wear masks, I don't return to their shop.
I want to say to say thank you to the beautiful individuals that replied to my post a while ago.
I was feeling extremely anxious, alone, depressed, and a bunch of other stuff. I posted on here and the positive responses helped me a lot. It made realize that I am not the only person in the world feeling the same way, but rather there are many of us in the same situation.
I’m extremely grateful to you all. It helped me a lot and I’m doing much better.
Thank you so much and I love you all.
Have a safe and nice holiday.
I'm on my own this year for various (covid-related) reasons & I am struggling. I'm sure I'm not alone in the struggle, I just wanted to come here & wish everyone a Merry Christmas, whether you're alone & having a hard time or dealing with a toxic family you have a hard time with, or having a first Christmas without a loved one. I hope you can find it within to find some good things about this year to appreciate, even if they're not as abundant as usual.
The fewer people I have in my life. At the beginning, people were acting strange, promoting terrible ideas online, nitpicking my photos. 21 months later, other friends are demanding their “freedom” and think being unvaxxed is a better idea than being vaxxed. I crave human contact but throughout the pandemic I am hating listening to my friends and find we have no common ground on things. On a happiness scale out of 10, I’m like 4.5 or 5. Just barely getting through things.
Finally did it and it tasted my own cum.... Actually very nice and sweet. Can't expect the ladies to swallow if I'm not willing to do it right? It's a nice way to start the new year, finally doing something that I should have done years ago. Reminds me of losing virginity; doesn't change who I am at all but makes me a lot more confident with certain taboos
With people who love you, you have no idea how lucky you are. I’ve been alone every Christmas, New Years, Birthday, etc etc for decades. It’s exhausting putting on a happy face and pretending I’m not dying inside because I’m so sad, lonely, and depressed. Please be gentle with people. You never know. I’m sure I look happy and successful on the outside. Really I’m just trying to figure out how to survive another miserably lonely holiday.
There are people who believe their lives matter more than others but I am not so arrogant to believe I can cheat death. The last couple of years, when everyone seemed to be complaining about losing family, friends, classmates, workmates over differences it saddened me. They almost seemed to be bragging about it. While others circles were gleefully shrinking, mine expanded. It's not a competition but I can't help to think that at a time when people should have been coming together, they chose to use the years rather unwisely. Whether it was attacking others beliefs or jumping to judgment, it greatly devalued and cheapened the struggles everyone faced, while forcing nonsensical wedges. I see and hear them and they're still talking through an undercurrent of jadedness about these losses. I can hear the self-inflicted misery they feel committed to but don't want to live in. I'm grateful for the ability to have reconnected with people estranged and built new healthier relationships. No matter what people may think - usually the loudest - it doesn't matter as long as you stay true to yourself and stay guided by your internal light. You will attract the right people. It has been a great joy getting to know more people in harmony with humanity through these times. I'm encouraged by what I see; a desire of people to reconnect with themselves and others in meaningful ways again, less division, more unity, where everyone is welcome.
Really zombie apocalyptic, I may just blow all my money on a big party and get it and then die. It’s inevitable and hiding out all the time is no way to live!!
I deleted my Facebook account on Christmas Day!!!
All done! I feel like I did something heroic. But no reward received. Not even a Hello Kitty bandaid. Just a normal one.
