I get a thrill out of seeing my words on this site, and I'm sure they will help solve the problems of the World.
Long before the study came out about alcohol being linked to cancer, I gave it up a couple years ago. Being sober has never been better. My mind is more clear, I have way better relationships with my family and coworkers, and I can finally hear myself think. It does take time to think normally again, but the road to sobriety requires self-discipline. Joe patience.
… for a job. Frustrated. I have a ton of skills but have not landed on my feet. An acquaintance with very few skills quickly got a govt job with good salary and benefits. Happy for her, truly, but my engine has been revving for so long, and still, no job. Frustrated!
It always seems so effortless and easy when we're together. No bs from the past just happy purposeful contentment.
Can two lost souls actually complete each other's circles in life?
With all these young, careless teenagers doing dangerous stunts on TikTok and losing their lives, I’m surprised such an app even exists. Personally, I hope Tickety Tok gets banned and that creators of this stupid app go to jail.
You should know, there are potentially serious ramifications to lying.
People don't like liars or worse.
Once a person knows you lied to them do you think they'll ever trust you again?
No, they won't.
If you brag to your friends sbout lying do you think they'll have any respect for you again?
No, they won't.
I got rejected. In my head at least, this was THE relationship for me. The rejection was crushing. Absolutely devasting. So I didn't get over it. I really thought I would get over it eventually... I mean that is what a normal person does, right? I tried the whole being with others to forget the 'one' thing, but after a decade or so instead my capacity to feel just faded. Maybe it's just aging as well, and it has allowed me to focus more on work and creative pursuits, and I still sometimes check on the person (virtually), but it feels like it's too late for my dream.
Skip the train
over a yellow brick line
now the train skips on you
should we look away?
wash the matter
resting in pieces
but there’s no peace here
things are dire when we’re
too broke to pay attention
except to look down
Did you see the look of resignation?
or was it panic
we can’t live this way
I can’t tell you not to
jump to another conclusion
ends by any means
some ends are just mean
how to find another way
click your heels
to find there’s no place like home
but does it even exist anymore
Where can any of us go
when life gets like this?
we cross a yellow brick road
knowing it’s been within us all along
a means to escape
now shoes glistened red
something clicks into place
we won’t live this way
I would tell him if you don't like the food, get the *bleep* out of here. The tofu chicken is amazing. Way better than real chicken. Corporate chefs don't know what they're talking about.
All I can think about is how ugly I am. Even simple tasks like grocery shopping is challenging. I know these thoughts are not true but they overwhelm.
