Those, the majority of us, who live paycheck-to-paycheck are getting a raw deal. I live alone and it is very challenging on my mental health. Now i'm not allowed to go see my social contacts, but I am expected to go to work and interact with the public and coworkers doing non-essential services all to keep my bosses paycheck coming? At the risk of my physical health: catching covid?! Fuck this world. Fuck the government. I'm going to go crazy and self destruct from being alone or get covid from having to go to work. I feel so disposable.
I found out that my significant other has been telling lies about me to people we both know. I wondered why I was getting weird looks. It’s interesting how most people still haven’t learned that there are two sides to a story and that you shouldn’t believe someone until you get the full story because there are a lot of manipulative people out there. Needless to say, this drama addict is getting dumped.
I'm tired of hearing about the US and their Hollywood style politics. Enough already! I only care to catch up on what's going on in my own community.
Judging by the confessions I read here, my life is far from bad. I am still employed, healthy, reasonably financially comfortable. But I don't find my career rewarding anymore and I feel my life is on hold waiting for when I can stop working. Everything I earn is going into savings for my retirement. Can I hold out until I have a secure future? Will I still be young enough to enjoy my retirement? Will the world be there for me to enjoy? Why am I wasting good days now for an uncertain future?
As someone who doesn't celebrate Christmas, I find the quantity of people planning to infect their loved ones over a number on a calendar disturbing.
I pasted a porn link into a chat with my manager by accident.
He said that he's "seen worse".
Our sister is the world's most annoying person. She always has to be right, which means you always have to be wrong. Whatever you say, she will come back with either "Well, you say that, but..." or "But on the other hand...". If you come prepared with evidence, or quote experts, she'll say she already knew all that, even though up to that point she will have been saying, and doing, the exact opposite. She thinks she knows how to run our lives better than we do (even though we're all functioning adults) and constantly complains about and criticizes us to one another, and her friends, behind our backs. She's 73 - is there any hope whatsoever that we can get her to stop behaving like this at this point? She lives alone, so we don't want to cut her off, but she's driving us crazy.
my parents’ place and my father is turning alcoholic and becoming abusive towards me. I have no income right now and nowhere to go, and no one I can ask for help. He was always abusive to me and now it’s starting again and I’m 38!! My Mom invited me here and wants me to stay but she enables him even though he’s abusive to her also. Never thought I’d be in this situation at my age. And now we are h adding into another lockdown. Just brutal.
I tend to obsess.
Like REALLY obsess.
When I know it's getting bad and there's no way it's going to be requited I start tuning out every word the person says. No matter what they mention I will freaking grasp onto that word so I have to actually not hear it. They like a certain author? Oh, well suddenly I'm reading every book they ever wrote. They like a certain type of perfume? Why am I buying women's perfume?? Obviously it's extremely unhealthy and unfortunately being super rude and ignoring them is the only way I can exist semi-normally. Once while I was doing a public presentation my dream person asked me a question and all I could do is stare blankly because I was doing everything I could to not hear anything. Anyway, I survived.
I need something to focus on. My industry isn’t hiring so I haven’t worked since March and I’m bored out of my mind. If I wasn’t so depressed I’d work on my hobbies but everything feels like too much effort.
