It's a minefield out there

I've learned only to make comments to people you have actually met outside of the Internet. Also to actually read articles before commenting on them. You never know what sort of drama you will receive.

Drinking

It’s weird that I miss someone so much when I’m drunk but when I wake up in the morning I’m disgusted. I think my brain misses aspects that seem devastating when I’m drunk but when I’m sober those aspects seem minuscule compared to the big picture. Time to lay off the booze.

Hollywood North

I've been making fake backgrounds for movies and TV for so long that it's all I see. It's like knowing the magicians secret, you can't enjoy the magic show.

Good god

Looked at myself in the mirror. 53 years old and fat. I got so ugly.

Flashback of the summer flings

Do they ever pop back in your mind all of a sudden? Dates, flings, even short relationshipa. I haven't thought of them for years, almost completely erased them in my mind. Then I would be washing the dishes and "BAM" a flashback. And it's always the ones that liked me more than I liked them. Where as the ones who broke my heart, well, I still think of him often for two years now. I would wonder/hope he still thinks about me, too. Then I realized "Oh... I must be like one of those flashbacks to him, someone he has forgotten about." It's something I could never talk out loud as it sounds so pathetic.

I live on rice Krispy squares

and A&W root beer. Tell me the truth, and don't spare my feelings, is there any greater felicity in the entire world?

There's one bottle I haven't touched in 18 years and that's Old No. 7

I can’t handle the alternative

I confess that I’m staying in a relationship that I know isn’t good for me, because I can’t cope with the isolation I get otherwise. I know it’s going nowhere and I know that I “should” leave, but right now I’m just not strong enough to handle one more heartbreak. It’s not all terrible and I’m not being physically or mentally abused, I’m just being used. So I’m doing a Bill Withers and I’m using them right back.

Mental illness devastation

I’ve had a lot of heartbreak in my life, but the worst I’ve ever experienced is because of a loved one with a severe mental illness. Unless you’ve been on the receiving end of the type of unhinged behaviour directed at you because of that person’s disease, you just have no idea. The level of abuse can be overwhelming. When they’re an adult who also has the capacity to convince others that they’re okay (when they’re very obviously not), you’re left with no choice other than to completely withdraw from their life just to protect yourself. I’ve never felt so helpless. It’s the worst pain that I’ve ever felt and I’m going through my own crises at the same time. How can you help someone who doesn’t think they need it? How do you keep your own sanity when someone that you love with all of your heart and would never do anything to knowingly hurt, tells you that they wish you were dead and sends you terrible and disgusting messages? I’m feeling very close to the edge myself over this, and I really just don’t know what to do or where to turn.

Disgusting Habit

When my wife drives our kids to school in the morning I turn on the laptop and look at pornography for 30 minutes right before I start my work day as I work from home. I love my wife and we have a great sex life its just she doesn't approve or pornography as she feels it is demeaning to women and since I have two daughters I should be disgusted by it. I just feel so ashamed of my disgusting habit.
