It seems every single story is trying to convince us we should be overjoyed to pay more taxes and make less wages?!
How is this even remotely acceptable to working British Columbians?
Soon they'll tell women to have babies again :) Not a slippery slope ;) Good luck ;)
Two years ago I was sexually assaulted. I went to the police and they did nothing. There wassnt enough evidence to lay charges so the person walks away. I'm haunted by what they did to me. I can't do things I love, i can't trust people. I want to get over it and close these wounds but I cannot. I tried to get my story out as a warning about this person but most people told me to keep my drama to myself and didn't want to believe me. What should I do? How do I heal?
The further I go up the corporate ladder, the less I think any of this can be fixed. It's easy from the outside to pick a bad guy and think if they just stopped being evil everything would be better, but 90% of the CEOs I talk to want to do the right thing - but then always have to add "And of course cut costs / profit is the bottom line". They're not soulless, they're just terrified of they dont put the company first, they'll get fired, and a lot of them are terribly insecure.
Fuck the people who complain about housing taxes tho. Nobody needs more than one home when the average person cant even find a shack.
Sure you rejected me. I guess. I mean you did cut me out of your life, marry someone else, have his child and never speak to me again. But I've been hard at work the whole time visualizing us having sex daily for years now and I have an exceptionally vivid imagination so there's really nothing that hasn't been fully explored even if we didn't PHYSICALLY do it. So, if you change your mind about things it wouldn't be a big decision anyway, so don't stress it, we could even fit it in during a lunch break or if we share an elevator.
To see Ben Shapiro! You little SJWs are weakening and cannot stop us! Hahahha!

I was watching the news and BC Hydro is going to charge everyone another $0.25/month to be put in some type giant pool of money to help those who are behind in their hydro bills. Seems like a good idea in principal but 1/3 of this money is going to be eaten up by their bloated bureaucracy to run this program. Then it goes on to say BC Hydro has increased its rates by 25% over the last 5 years which is far more than inflation and there are literally a huge amount of people making over $100,000 a year there. This is the same place that for years gave essentially every single employee a $1000 bonus for showing up.
I think BC Hydro needs to clean their own house before charging the rest of us in some type of phony altruistic scheme because I can smell the manure a mile away.
You know you hurt her right? Instead of being an adult and telling her you didn’t want to be friends you just deleted her from your life. 13 years. I met you at one of her parties. She always had nice things to say about you and then you go and hurt her like this? It’s been a couple years and she still gets upset and she doesn’t deserve it, you do! You play victim and woe is me on your social media but you threw away a person who would have stood by you through anything. And the sad thing is she still misses you and would do anything to talk to you again. I however know you’re an asshole for what you did and I hope karma comes back at you for the pain you caused someone who had been nothing but loyal to you since the day you met.
Is now probably over run by empty condos shops that sell $7 bottles of organic jiuice & hipster tattoo shops like the DTES here in Vancouver
I have a hard time telling if some people are just completely sadistic, or if they're just completely oblivious to what they're doing.
After finding I didn't get much from casual dating or sex, I thought I'd give it up for a while. I chose abstinence for a long time, thinking it would help me see more clearly and be better able to focus on what I wanted in life, and helping others. I'd spent so much of my teen years and young adulthood chasing after relationships and sexual experiences that I thought I'd overdone it, and that maybe I'd given up too much of myself in that pursuit, and in helping the others flourish. But I over did the abstinence as well. It worked at first, but to my surprise, that later turned me into a fiend: I turned into a hater, thinking I didn't need closeness. And I grew dismissive of love, thinking I couldn't have it anymore. And I grew self-conscious, for lack of experience. More or less, my view on love became fatalistic. I've dealt with a lot of haters in the past. I always thought people hate because it's easier. I'm just baffled I did this to myself.

How to talk about someone that you're seeing to someone that you're in love with?
I've been bingeing an old TV show and in one episode, the characters are reminiscing about relationships they've had in the past where the sexual chemistry was off the charts. One of them mused that "we've all had a relationship like that" and how it burns hot and fizzles fast. It was at that moment I realized a relationship I had a few years ago which resembled that description was never meant to last. A relationship like that can't be sustained for long. I'm long done mourning the loss of that relationship but it was nice to have someone, even if it was a TV character, put it all into a different perspective.
