2023.05.28 19:15 FunAd7699 Tell me what made u leave Christianity??--(Jesus doctrines/teaching??

Don't get me started with God...
Anyways this is my huge truama towards religion...here it is👇
People of Christian faith always blame me or say something really terrible then the people that's not really of the so-called Faith
My pastor (from a another church ) told me that my rape it's gonna keep happening until I give my life to God.
And my sister friend from church basically told me that I let him rape me.
I really wanna cry because it like thoses people like that are only faking like they really care, just to force me to get into their faith.
Imma tell you how many times I've been raped... And etc...
I was raped 3 times (3 different times from 3 different guys), sexual corecion 3 times.. and to be honest I think I miss counting...I think it's more... I just don't wanna stop and actually think about each incident.
and for the rape part just add one more for ex bf.
Most of my rapes was basically by strangers and ( only a couple people that I basically saw in my neighborhood alot or someone I hangout out alot–(But I didn't really know them ….
The only person that I really knew was.… was my ex, bf..
( My ex bf is the only person I basically knew before he raped me.)
(And I truly feel like GOD DON'T CARE.. ABOUT RAPE OR ANYTHING LIKE IT.... )
(I HONESTLY JUST STAY IN THE FAITH BECAUSE I SO SCARED OF GOING TO HELL...
WHICH MAKES ME THINK THAT I HAVE
RELIGIOUS TRAUMA SYNDROME....
(IN NOT SURE... BUT IM BASICALLY SCARED TO DEATH TO LEAVE YE FAITH...(BECAUSE OF FEAR OF HELL....)
BUT I HONESTLY DON'T THINK THE BIBLE GOD CARES ABOUT RAPE... I REALLY THINKS THAT HE CONDONES IT.... AND OR DO ALOT OF GENOCIDE STUFF...
(Like I free like... My only free will now is my true opinions about GOD... And most of my opinions about him is not good....)
But I stay in the faith so I would go to hell...
And I have night terrors.....(while I'm awake..)
Because I get so scared and paranoid that I'm dying and thinking that The GOD of the bible is gonna send me to hell...
(So I constantly pray forgiveness... And pray for my ex bf ( that I really believe raped me..)
I pray for my ex--- (because in the bible is says this:
MATTEW 5:44
I SAY UNTO YOU,LOVE YOUR ENEMIES
AND LUKE 6:28
Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
So I don't just that... (I pray for my rapist... And I pray that he'll be ok and etc... By God..
(I really think my religious truma is getting worse.....)
Now I hear voices in my head... Like screaming people...(sorry if I starting to sound crazy..)
(I'm so scared..)--- I really feel like no matter what I do... I feel like I'm unforgivable....
And since I'm so scared that I might die... (I basically stay up all night...until 5am...---(around 5am...that's when I feel safe... And that's when I think GOD is not gonna hurt me..
And plus:👇👇👇
Yeah... And it completely sucks....(this Christain GOD is literally taking my joy away from life.
(Every since I gave my life to GOD/Jesus.)--- I HOPE TO DIE EVERYDAY ------BECAUSE OF HOW MISERABLE MY LIFE IS NOW.---( I GET SO SCARED AT NIGHT THINKING THAT IMMA DIE---I ASK HIM FOR FORGIVENESS LIKE EVERY SINGLE SECOND.)---AND I FORCE MYSELF TO STAY UP ALL NIGHT STARTING FROM 9 OR 10PM. ALL THE WAY TO 5 OR SOMETIMES 6 AM.
I FEEL SO SCARED AT NIGHT TIME BECAUSE THE SKY IS DARK AND FEEL LIKE IF I SIN... IMMA GO TO HELL THAT NIGHT.
BUT IN THE MORNINGS I FEEL MOSTLY SAFE AND I BASICALLY DON'T WORRY AT ABOUT THE WHOLE GOD THING..(BUT INSTEAD I ACTUALLY KEEP HOW I ACTUALLY FEEL ABOUT GOD–(THAT I DON'T LIKE HOM AND ETF, IN MY MIF BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE THAT STILL THE REAL ME VERSES BEING A ZOMBIE AND SERVING GOD.---(I FEEL SAFE THINKING LIKE THIS—BUT ONLY IN THE MORNINGS THOUGH.
AND SOMEDAYS WHEN ACTUALLY WATCH VIDEOS OF PEOPLE THAT STOP BEING CHRISTIAN AND TURN COMPLETELY AWAY FROM THE CHRISTIAN GOD, ---THEY SEEM SO HAPPY AND IN PEACE AND I REALLY HOPE TO BE LIKE THAT ONEDAY WITHOUT FEAR OF GOING TO HELL.
THOSES VIDEOS GIVES ME COMPLETE PEACE/ AND HOPE IN MY SOUL WHEN I IMAGINE GOD OF THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE IS NOT REAL AND STUFF…..---(BUT WHEN IT NIGHT TIME---I FEEL LIKE IM IN HELL ALL OVER AGAIN..---SCARED TO DEATH I STAT TO PRAY TO JESUS AND START ASKING FORGIVING MY SINS…..
AND THIS GOES ON EVERY NIGHT....(EVER SINCE I GAVE MY LIFE TO GOD/JESUS.)---MY LIFE HAS ACTUALLY BEEN HELL .. LIKE FOR REAL.---(MENTALLY)
AND SOMETIMES I CAN'T LOOK AT LIGHTS ON THE CEILING BECAUSE —(I DON'T HAVE MY GLASSES RIGHT NOW, AND THE LIGHTS LOOK REALLY BLURRY,---(AND I STARTED TO THINK IM DYING BECAUSE OF HOW BLURRY MY VISION AND HOW THE LIGHTS LOOK LIKE… —( WHEN I WAS AT THE POOL WITH MY TWIN SISTER, I HAD FUN UNTIL I NOTICED THE LIGHTS IN THE BUILDING LOOKED BLURRY)----I GOT SO SCARED I COULDN'T EVEN HAVE FUN AT THE POOL AND I WANTED TO LEAVE IMMEDIATELY!!!---THIS IS BASICALLY THE FIRST TIME I HAD MY EXTREME ANXIETY ATTACK ABOUT GOD IN THE MORNING.---I NEVER REALLY HAVE ANXIETY/FEAR OF HELL UNTIL NIGHT TIME… BUT THE FIRST TIME IN THE MORNING WAS AT THE POOL WITH MY TWIN SISTER….--(WHEN I SAW THE LIGHTS ON THE CEILING LOOKED BLURRY)
THIS IS COMPLETE TORTURE!!!!!!
I WANT MY REAL LIFE BACK!!!!---BUT SINCE IM SOOO SCARED OF GOING TO HELL I JUST STAY IN THE FAITH.
(Even though deep down I would wanna leave SO BAD)--LEAVE COMPLETELY AND NEVER TURN BACK.
IM SO DEPRESSED NOW, I'M LOSING WEIGHT, AND LOSING ALOT OF NIGHT SLEEPS,----I ONLY SLEEP IN THE MORNINGS NOW.😭😭😭😭.
TW: DEATH THOUGHTS/NOT SUICIDE THOUGHTS THOUGH!!!
I'M SO MISERABLE I HAVE THOUGHTS OF WHAT IF I DIE--THEN MAYBE THIS TORTURE WOULD BE OVER.
I honestly don't feel like I have a choice:( if I walk away from the Jesus God)
Then I go to hell.
I just want this to be over....

2023.05.28 19:13 Broad-Management-468 Tangled Treasures Where Greed Took Over

Chapter 1: The Discovery
In a small town named River's Bend,
Lived a young man named Jack, with dreams to tend.
One fateful day, while wandering in the woods,
He stumbled upon a hidden treasure, as fortune stood.
With wide eyes and disbelief, he gazed,
At a sack filled with riches, as his heart blazed.
A million dollars in cash, glittering bright,
Jack's life would soon change, day and night.
Chapter 2: The Mysterious Stranger
Word of Jack's newfound fortune spread,
Attracting attention, both green and red.
Amongst the curious crowd, a stranger appeared,
Dressed in a long coat, his intentions unclear.
Introducing himself as the enigmatic Mr. Black,
He offered Jack guidance, a mysterious track.
But behind his charming smile and wily glance,
Lurked a secret agenda, a dangerous dance.
Chapter 3: Illusions of Wealth
With newfound riches, a dream taking flight,
Jack basked in the glow of their delight.
Stacks of cash, a fortune to behold,
He marveled at the treasures he now hold.
Visions of grandeur danced within his mind,
As illusions of wealth began to unwind.
A life of luxury, a world so grand,
He believed fortune was within his command.
But as the days passed, reality unfurled,
The weight of wealth began to overworld.
For material possessions, though shiny and bright,
Cannot bring true happiness, day or night.
Chapter 4: Shadows of Greed
In shadows deep, where darkness resides,
Lurked the vices of greed that none could hide.
Whispers of envy, a treacherous game,
As Jack ventured, consumed by the flame.
Within his circle, a sinister plot,
As shadows of greed cast an ominous blot.
Friends turned foes, driven by desire,
A web of deceit, fueling the fire.
Chapter 5: Betrayal Unveiled
A twist of fate, a heart filled with dread,
Betrayal's venom, a poison widespread.
In this chapter, secrets began to unfold,
As loyalty shattered, a story to be told.
A trusted companion, once steadfast and true,
Revealed their true colors, their motives askew.
The bond that they shared, now tattered and torn,
Betrayal's sting, a lesson hard-learned.
Chapter 6: Twisted Alliances
In the labyrinth of schemes and deceit,
Jack sought allies, their purpose to meet.
But in this treacherous game of give and take,
Twisted alliances, risks they would make.
A figure emerged from shadows unknown,
With promises tempting, their intentions not shown.
A dance of manipulation, a dangerous affair,
As Jack treads cautiously, aware and prepared.
Chapter 7: Deception's Veil
In the depths of darkness, a cunning disguise,
Deception's veil covered truth from his eyes.
Chapter 7 unfurled, where secrets would be laid,
As Jack delved deeper into the charade.
A master of illusion, a puppeteer of lies,
A mysterious figure, veiled in disguise.
Their manipulative strings, so deftly entwined,
As Jack unraveled the truth, they'd find.
Chapter 8: Pursuit of Clues
In this chapter, a quest began to unfold,
The pursuit of clues, a story to be told.
Jack, driven by an insatiable need,
To unravel the mystery, and follow the lead.
With map in hand, he ventured wide,
Seeking answers that secrets would provide.
Each clue, a breadcrumb on his trail,
Leading him closer, without fail.
Chapter 9: Confronting Shadows
In this chapter, shadows grew strong,
Confronting darkness, where they belong.
Jack, determined to face his fears,
Stepped into the abyss, amidst silent tears.
The shadows whispered, taunting his mind,
Doubts and insecurities, difficult to bind.
But with courage as armor, he pressed ahead,
Confronting the shadows, where truth would spread.
Chapter 10: Redemption's Embrace
In the final chapter, redemption drew near,
Jack, transformed, the path became clear.
Lessons learned, a journey complete,
He embraced redemption, finding solace sweet.
Through trials endured, mistakes made in strife,
He sought forgiveness, to reclaim his life.
Atonement in his heart, a healing grace,
He embraced redemption, a warm embrace.
As Jack's story concludes, his life transformed,
Additional characters and names have swarmed.
Each playing a role in this tangled tale,
Where fortune's allure had caused a grand-scale.

2023.05.28 19:12 Michael_Ruggieri Why you have to quit gaming.

I don't think gaming can be moderated. Everyone's different and everyone has their own barriers, but gaming is really something. I've been gaming for many years, and I'm 16 now, so I have lots to say about gaming. I've played many games, starting with Minecraft on the XBOX 360 and I had an absolute blast with friends. This was an awesome period. From there, moving on to the PS4, I continued playing Minecraft, until the days of Fortnite, and that's really where I've spent thousands of hours. Again, playing with my friends, I had fun for sure. Then, I began playing single-player games, I really liked a good story. I played incredible games like Red Dead Redemption 2, the Witcher 3, and Fallout 4. I played these games alone, and that was a different feeling, but I still had fun. I was thinking about these games all the time. In the more recent games, I've probably played strategy games like Civilization. The point I want to make here is that video games are very, very fun, too fun. These games took up my life, especially when I grew up, I started playing games by myself for hours on hours. Then when my friends got on, I would play with them. I would play for hours and hours daily.
Just a year ago, I decided to start my self-improvement journey, and it has been an incredible decision. Gaming was not my entire life anymore. I began to have aspirations like bodybuilding, I began to work on my mental health, and now I'm learning how to code. What really made me make this post, is that yesterday, I decided to play games again. I haven't conquered gaming yet, I still have urges to go back to these games, so yesterday I went back. And I really just couldn't play, it was a single-player game, so not as addicting, but I couldn't do it. I really was not having that much fun.
While I just said video games are too fun, I think the reason why I personally wasn't having fun was because of how much I've played in the past and also because of the mindsets I've formed. I've experienced such highs from gaming, sometimes I think will I ever be able to have that much fun again? What I've realized is that those people who want to go far in life, who want to make it in the top 1%, they cannot afford to be playing games at any level. There's this quote, it says something like this: "It is disrespectful to not reach your potential after what your parents have sacrificed for you." Every time I play video games, this comes to my head, and I realize why am I even playing video games right now. I have a mission to pursue. If I look at life like a race, those people behind me in the race will pass me, if I play video games. This is not to say we cannot enjoy life, but I think everyone in this community knows what they want. True enjoyment comes from making progress in real life and achieving real, fulfilling goals. What about single-player games? I've played those too, and I truly think there are probably better stories out there in other media that don't take 20-30 hours to consume. I still play a little bit with my friends, but I do have fun and it's usually not for that long. We do things in real life, gaming is not the only link to our friendship.
Quitting video games starts with a single decision, and that is the decision to quit. Next, you must find your why. A good way can be to become an outlier, part of the 1% of people, to actually live and have a sense of freedom.

2023.05.28 19:12 Jah0047 How do I (25m) move forward in a relationship with my father (55m)?

My dad cheated on all his wives and I am very upset about it.
TLDR: I feel immature for not being able to just forgive my dad for cheating on his wives and creating such a tough/ broken family life for me.
Details A few nights ago my mom was very drunk and started telling me all kind of things from when her and my dad were together. She told me everything from when she started dating as an adult, to when she met my father, to when they got married, to when they got divorced and all the details in between. I learned that night my dad cheated on my mom multiple time with multiple women and had no real remorse for it (he later had a second child also cheating on that wife which landed him in another divorce) growing up my mom was a very distraught woman - she drank a lot, and still does, and beat the crap out of me when she was drunk (until I was old and big enough to defend myself) I’m now totally convinced she only really heavily drank because of how bad her relationship with my dad was and she beat me because I was my dads child and I veryyy closely resembled my dad (we look veryyy similar physically) anyways I saw my dad a reasonable amount growing up, but my dad has told me (while drunk) if I was female or if I was gay/ bisexual (I have felt urges towards other males when I was on therapy for depression) he would have had and still have nothing to do with me. Growing up my dad never really physically disciplined me (I’ve always thought it was because he felt bad about my mom beating me) in early highs school I asked if I could move in with him and he told me no that he did not have the money to support me full time as at this point I would only be around every other weekend and some holidays (this was not consistent because there were times he would be on business trips or could not see me for one reason or another but would always try to make it up by getting me Ice cream or a new video game I really wanted) I knew it was just a way to make up by giving me material goods and at the time I was okay with it because I got something I really wanted that my mom would never get for me but now as an adult or early adult I feel much different about those gifts. my dad has always been somewhat of an idol in my eyes, but now (over the past 2-3 years) I’ve learned and see things that make me really dislike my dad as a person (I think in some ways he tried his best but I feel a high level of anger and not wanting to be associated with him) I am a huge pile of conflicted emotions and not really sure what to think about it all. Growing up my dad was supportive and came to different sports games sometimes but nothing else (I really enjoyed scholars bowl and won awards frequently and he always told me I and my nerd friends could celebrate alone) he was not very supportive when I left medicine to go into finance and he hasn’t been very supportive in my most recent relationship - this girl has been one of the most amazing partners I’ve ever had (he says we’re moving to fast and I am drifting from my family) I have recently felt that I really, in some ways, do not even want him present at my wedding (I would love his monetary support because it’s expensive, but after learning more about who he is I just feel he’s a selfish ahole who did not understand how to be faithful to a partner) my dad has had a tough life, things were not always easy for him he grew up in an emotionally abusive household and his dad ran around a lot on his mom. I’m trying to remember that the way he acted reflected what he knew or what he learned from his childhood based on the way his parents were and that’s how he became as an adult, in some ways he was just a product of his environment and in others he knew exactly what he was doing wrong and did not hint to prevent it he never went to couple therapy he never asked for a break ofr divorce before cheating. My dad is just not the man I thought he was an I’m very upset by it all. His wives have always been slightly disrespectful to me (telling me things like I don’t behave or I’m a baby for crying or I’m a wimp for not standing up for myself or I’m a loser for dropping out of med school) I realize he has his own problems and it took time for him to admit those issues and try to work through those problems, but I can’t help but thinking my dad is a POS and I feel like I’m not being very understanding and being very judgmental - this is not all about me but I’m so upset he lied about everything that happened and just continued his way of life..

2023.05.28 19:11 Majestic-Sherbert913 Ok I give credit we’re credit is due

V actually looks a lot better with the darker hair and doesn’t seem completely strung out today. We all know this changes of course but if she really is going on interviews next week and trying then keep it up. Time of course will tell. It sounds like she’s in the verge on being completely stripped of parental rights so you better wake up girl get the help get yourself together and give your life for real. It’s not a game and not a show. It would really help your image though if you did right be people and started to pay them back, even a little at a time. You want people to think better of you then you have to actually do better

2023.05.28 19:11 twotrickomnic Who are, in your opinion, the most realistic heroes in Overwatch? Include at least one omnic.

Mine are:
Baptiste because he is quite literally just a combat medic with futuristic technology. Kiriko because she's... literally just a shrine miko, and Bastion because he's quite literally a basic robot. With a gun. You could build Bastion in real life. (minus the sentience)

2023.05.28 19:05 Valuable-Rutabaga-41 I’ve just realized that I am an out of control sex (ejaculation) addict. Can anyone in a relatable situation explain how they stopped?

So this is not what people think, but I have an addiction to masturbation, not sex. I have masturbated in public bathrooms and my room and I have a lot of shame. I actually have a low body count but I’ve just started to bloom as a 25 year old guy who now gets a lot of sexual attention, so it could turn into the real deal if I don’t change things.
Only recently have I become skilled in talking to women and I can already tell that my life is going to fall down the shitter if I don’t change things real fast.
These are the reasons why I compulsively masturbate 1. Feeling unacceptable, 2. relieving stress, 3. Childhood trauma, 4. I have set my self esteem on impressing women and I feel like I have to self deprecate to have a non threatening conversation with guys my age (because I’m so used to having to constantly be impressive, I’ve spent so much time in isolation fine tuning my humor and conversation skills).
I think the biggest reason is that I cannot actually imagine being loved by someone else because I feel as though my caregivers didn’t love me.
Even after knowing all of this, I’m still hardly able to change my perspective or habit of daily masturbation.
Someone who has been there, please help me. I’m buying books on sex addiction and am seeing a therapist but other than Reddit, (just the way I look) people would rather avoid helping me.

2023.05.28 19:05 Bigjuicyfresh Just chiming in to say...

Ive lurked in this sub for a few months now and the one thing lately that i have seen is the frequent discussion/debate on:
5'8 and up cannot understand the levels of the being ostracized that of a 5'7 (maybe starting at 5'6) and lower.
Specifically this post out of a few
I noticed many lurkers and commenters mass upvote comments mentioning how annoying and sad and quite frankly, delusional this all is. -Even making the OP (and may others also "feel uncomfortable")
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
So a big apologies in advance to the mods if this breaks any rules or guidelines-
I have created a Subreddit that makes it basically all the same to this one but for 5'7 and under men
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
I just cannot sit back and watch the ALREADY real life issues people here deal with, rather its family,work,health,mental etc. and then come home or log/lurk into this subreddit where you see a bunch of yadada commotion on (exaggeration incoming) "5 foOt 10 iS tHe nEw 5'5!"
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Now of course if this doesnt garner much users or attention then ill simply step back, back into the shadows with no regrets! But i feel asthough this would loosen the "Chaos" and " depravity" this topic can induce. Although to many it can also be funny and entertaining!
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
This subreddit is amazing, truly, to me and others, and the mods here (specifically to me)- u/ScrimmyBingusTwo do a good job making it not a short2 subreddit.
But i feel asthough its quite tensive here, like at any point the next post can send sirens to go off and the next civil war begins then post after post it repeats...
Lets try and break that cycle shall we?

2023.05.28 19:04 PartyQuietboy I think about killing my parents, a lot

I had a rough childhood in almost every aspect, growing up was hard.. right from the start I was having trouble excelling in school. I flunked my first year of kindergarten, and then I had to repeat the 8th grade. It was a miracle every time that I somehow made it through. I paid attention and studied hard, but there was just something that wasn't right and I didn't understand. My parents boiled it down to me not paying attention and I would just cry because I knew that wasn't the case.. trying to talk back and have an actual conversation with my parents was impossible though.. I'd get a smack to the face from my mother, and don't let it be my father I was talking back to! He'd beat me until another tear wasn't able to fall.. my father was an alcoholic and always kept the cupboards packed with booze, when I was 14 I snuck some for myself to just see what was so good about it, and I thought it'd be a fun experience.. I was already dealing with tons of anxiety and self loathing at this age, I felt like a fucking failure and after that first night of trying alcohol- I found my cope. I started getting drunk alone in my room when my parents would go to bed at least 4-5 nights out of the week.. I was scared of being caught , but I thought that my father was getting too drunk every night to realize whether or not he drank the alcohol that was missing, I was right.
prioritizing drinking over my school work caused my grades to flunk further, by the time I made it into the 10th grade I was 18, still struggling and holding on by a thread. Literally all I could think about was getting home and drinking my problems away. I dropped out of school because it was getting increasingly harder, making friends was easy for me as a kid, but when I entered my teenage years, it's like my personality left and I felt/still feel like a walking mental illness.. I didn't know how to be happy or have fun anymore, my only idea of fun was drinking, which I did alone. After dropping out, I stayed at home most days, jacking off during the day to pass time, I was always ready for it to be night time.. I knew I was addicted, but I didn't care. Dropping out of school was the biggest mistake ever, for the next year and half that's literally all I did, drink and masturbate. My dad was still very emotionally abusive, but he didn't physically abuse me anymore.. I think because I reached his height and level of strength at that point. They harassed me about getting a job everyday and told me I needed therapy, and that they'd pay for it. I refused and all of this just led to more resentment, how are you going to offer help for what caused? I struggled with symptoms of OCD growing up, it was basically just the kind that my mind would get set on a situation and I'd end up overthinking it.. these thoughts came from a place of concern, but then I started to suffer from very very frightening intrusive thoughts- everyday my mind was plagued with the thought of killing my parents, especially my dad. The fact that my father had guns locked up in the house made these thoughts even scarier for me. I thought at one point I was going to actually end up doing it- it felt like my real self was watered down and that some kind of evil lived in me and I felt like I was barely in control of my own body. I used to stare at the guns/knives in the kitchen and just try to actually think about what it would be like.. by doing this, I thought it would scare me out of having these thoughts, but they only grew stronger.. because of this, I started to abuse alcohol even more, sleeping more hrs of the day and would go for walks randomly to put myself at a distance to protect my parents from my own self.. my family has never been been the religious kind, but I would just pray at night and ask God to take these thoughts away or at least let me die in my sleep. Suicidal thoughts never stayed with me long, I wanted to die, but I was too weak to do it myself. Every cope that I had worked somewhat, but I needed something more, I started to cut myself on my arms/thighs/and chest and it made living a bit easier. The thoughts still continued to grow and I had no options, I was either going to end up commiting a crime so evil, or accept help from my parents.. so I did.
I started to attend one therapy session a week until my therapist suggested I started seeing him twice a week.. I told him about my sick obsessive thoughts, how I've been drinking since I was 14, the self harming, and how I struggled in school.. that topic kinda stayed on the back burner for like 3 months because I was dealing with much scarier stuff at the time. I ended up getting an official diagnosis for depression, OCD and ADHD.. which probably explains a lot for why I struggled in school so much. I was prescribed Zoloft but due to his knowing of my struggles with alcohol, I wasn't able to get a narcotic for my ADHD. my OCD started to simmer down some l, but the thought still stayed in the back of my head always and was overwhelming. I was able to get a job in a factory, working in an environment like this was terrible.. I tried to avoid talking to others because I never wanted there to be a potential conflict, I was scared that if that happened I would end up being plagued with the thoughts of hurting others, it happened from time to time.. but those thoughts wore off, my thought of hurting my parents is still with me to this day. I continued to work up until I could get my own place, it was a crappy apartment, but at least being there kept me in distance from my parents, the only time I went over to visit was when I wanted to steal some alcohol.. which was often.
I had gotten a hold on the self harming, well besides drinking.. I was almost 20 at this point and then me and my therapist started to speak more about how about how I struggled in school.. how it was the spark for me falling into addiction. I then was diagnosed with dyscalculia and dysgraphia.. everything started to make sense now, I finally knew why I struggled so badly in school and now it was too late.. I never received any help, you'd think that someone in the school system would have suggested help- but no.. it was just brushed off as laziness. And the only response I got from bad grades, is a beating. After that diagnosis I started to self harm again, I was cutting almost everyday. This made my resentment grow for my parents, to the point of hatred for the both of them, especially my father.. my mother was abusive too, and I was definitely neglected as a child, but I blame my father even more.. this led me back to having the same thoughts and they were stronger than ever. I stopped going over there and eventually was able to buy alcohol from a gas station that didn't bother to ID.. I had so much built up anger and I had to take it out on someone or something.. every time I would get drunk, I'd end up punching more and more holes in my wall.. I'm afraid to move because I know I'd be sued out the ass. It's now been another year, im 21 and haven't spoken to my parents in like 7 months for the sake of their own safety.. I can't make friends, have a girlfriend, or even have a pet because I'm insanely afraid of what I could do in moments of rage.. besides the meds, I stopped going to therapy because I wasn't really getting anywhere. I feel like a lost cause and I really don't know what to do. What's there to work with? I have no intelligence, I'm severally mentally ill, realistically, I'll probably stay working a dead end job until I die alone of liver failure or something. I know this post was long, so if you read all of this, thank you.

2023.05.28 19:03 jacuzzislutt I was gr00med. TW

hi everyone. (f21) for starters this was not a recent event, in fact it was over 5 years ago but recently I have been reflecting and made a realization that I was groomed in my first real relationship.
In the fall of 2016, I was f15 when I met my first “love” (I don’t even know if it was real love) when he was m18. We met through Instagram and then we found out that we lived maybe 20-30 mins apart so then we began to meet up. At first I never thought the age was an issue because at this time I was going through a really rough patch. My grandmother passed away about a few weeks ago before I met him. (Let’s call him Steve) and I was in a desperate place of wanting someone to love and listen to me. I thought steve was perfect for that because he did. We had so much in common and played video games together. However, I had to hide his age from my parents and friends because he told me I should and I did. I told people that Steve was 17. We started to date at the end of 2016. At first I thought it was fine but little did I know he would turn into a completely different person. He ended up controlling me, my life, my friendships, my outfits and my interests. I couldn’t like or wear certain things. He needed to know where I was at all times, and if I didn’t text him back in a certain period he would become this angry beast and just scream and call me all different names like: “b!tch”, “wh**e”, etc
In 2018 I finally called it quits with him. But he would not leave me alone. At this point he was 20-21 and he had no life, I was his life. (He dropped out of highschool, had no job, no career goals or anything. He would mooch money from his 60 something year old mother who worked 2 jobs.)
Finally in April of 2019 I was DONE. I was so scared to leave before for good because he would use threats against me and try to manipulate me back and it always worked. I was now 17 at this time. I was in a class with one of my friends and he knew about this relationship and he let me vent about it. One afternoon in our class he saw me super distressed and asked to see my phone. I gave it to him and he blocked Steve on the app we talked on and powered down my phone.
I was shocked at the time cause I was terrified if Steve would yell at me for not telling him I left or was blocking him. It took a few hours to pass when it finally hit me,
I was free.
Since then I’ve been able to process a lot with the help of therapy and my relationship I have now. Steve did indeed groom me. He knew what he was doing. He knew he was dating a minor. He took my teenage years away because he controlled them and I never got to have my own experiences. I am lucky enough to have had a huge support system at the time of us separating for good. My friends held my hand through it all and helped me take my life back.
Also, For legal sake I can’t say he didn’t do anything sexual to me because he did. Even though the age of consent in my state is 16 and I was around 16-17 at the time of some “events” occurring (we never had actual s3x so thank god. ) but we did do other things and they were forced. I never wanted to do them but he did. I am still processing those as well because to do this day I struggle with intimacy at times because of Steve.
I’m now 21, like I said and Steve would be almost 24. I don’t know where he is or what he’s doing because after I blocked him he started to disappear off social media and the internet. I did track him down on discord and eventually I told him how he hurt me and we did have a bit of closure but now I see it in a whole other way.
And if Steve, If you’re somehow seeing this.. I want you to know that I am doing so much better and I am happy knowing that a rock bottom of my life was with you because now I’m shining.
Thank you for reading this and apologies if it was too much for some. Gr00ming is not okay and it can hurt and leave scars. I have a lot of traumas from it but I am growing stronger each day. I am a survivor.

2023.05.28 19:02 Szofferino Why am I always feeling anxious after going to parties where I know a lot of people and I am socialising a lot? How to overcome this?

I (23f) have this tendency to feel really anxious, awkward and embarrassed the day after I go to a party, especially music/dance events. For those who are unfamiliar with the whole scene, these events are packed with people, and usually a smaller community where everyone knows everyone and I see many familiar faces. I am talking about music events, such as raves or disco nights, taking place in clubs or other bigger venues in my city (I live in Europe). I am also a university student, and I have a large social circle, thus it is common to bump into people I haven't talked to for weeks/months.
What happens is basically I get 'socially high' (especially after drinking alcohol), and open up way too much and too quickly when I talk to someone. I just really enjoy myself in these social, vibrant scenes, and I am literally thrilled when I bump into someone I know, and start talking to them immediately. It's like I lose all my social boundaries and overshare with people, and I usually get waay too private with them too. I compliment random attendees for their outfits, offer my cigarettes to strangers etc. I am just being generally too kind. It's like I am in a different, alternative reality where everything is perfect, everyone is my friend, and I have absolutely no worries. Basically, the entire time I spend at the party is a 'catharsis' and I do not watch my behaviour, I act like a happy little child. I also have a feeling that I never want the party to end, because then I have to return to reality, and face my daily struggles. Towards the end, I usually get very depressed that I soon have to go home, and try to have a last drink, or cigarette outside.
Then, the next day I always feel very regretful of things I said, or information I overshared. I also sometimes lie or overstate small things with my friends, just to win their attention for a second, and I feel extremely embarrased and guilty over it. I consider myself a balanced and normal person in my everyday life, and I just do not understand why I cannot control myself at these parties. I really wish I was less enthusiastic, and I always promise myself I would behave, and then I never do.
I feel awful about this whole issue. I see other people acting similarly, especially under substance use, but I still feel like everyone is ashamed of me and talks about me behind my back. The worst part is by all means my guilt, and the embarrasment. It got to the point where I fear to go out with my friends, because I am scared I would have a too good time and lose my boundaries. It is actually out of my control, I can feel that I want to shut my mouth and I just cannot. And the next day, I just cannot stop thinking about things I said or did, I overthink every single moment or interaction I shared. I know it is just my anxiety, and is not real, but I cannot stop.
I think I have just gone too crazy recently, as I study and work full time, and whenever I get the chance I go party to blow off some steam and relax. I wish I started attending less toxic, more conventional events, such as a book club, board game night or just a civilised, non-drinking dinner with colleagues. I feel like I would equally enjoy that, but unfortunately, these are really rare in my generation and even if we plan something like it, it turns into a wild night out.
How could I fix this issue at my age? I am 23, and I have been going out since I was 15. Still, I never experienced anything like this when I was younger.

2023.05.28 18:59 whole-lottaluck 34 [F4M] #BC/Canada - Looking for a good guy to make me a mom

Hi guys! I’m looking for someone happy, driven, and single. I’m ready for something real and would prefer a more traditional relationship dynamic with someone super family-oriented and dominant. Please be secure in life, with a good head on your shoulders.
About me: - I’m blonde with green eyes and abundant curves (plus size girl). - I strive to not be boring or basic! Life should be weird and goofy. - I’m total mom material and am extremely dependable and caring with the people I love. - I’m not really looking to relocate…not in the short term anyways. I love where I live and would like to grow a family here in BC. - I’m not looking for a co-parent or a donor. I’d like to build an awesome relationship with someone that I share values, goals, and interests with. - Some interests of mine: thrifting, DIY, anything on or in the water, cooking, travelling, and TV is totally my guilty pleasure (I enjoy quality stuff and trash—in equal measure).
If I’m ticking your boxes and think you might tick mine, please send me a chat and share a bit about yourself (including age/location)! I don’t respond to lazy first messages.
IF YOU ARE NOT CURRENTLY SINGLE, I DONT WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. 🙃

2023.05.28 18:59 endersgame69 Kayobi's Days Off C7

Jin stayed with me for a few hours before going home, it took a while to get the swelling down on his eye to be sure his mother wouldn’t notice. She is a sweet lady, but with a very strong spirit. Very stubborn. She’d have been a good swapper, and a great painter.
But dealing with Jin getting picked on was not something I wanted for her to be put through while she was sick… or healthy… or at all. And neither did Jin. So I held the compress over his eye while we watched an old series about gods hunting sorcerers while their pervert in the group continued to try to get the attention of ladies and got smacked around for it.
It was dinner time when he left, and when my stomach rumbled he said, “I’m going to make dinner for my mom, so… how about I bring you some of whatever’s left?” He grinned a little. “It’s the least I can do.”
“Sure thing.” I said with a much larger grin. He scratched his head a little.
“Huh, I kind of thought you’d say something about leaving it all for my mom and I or, ‘No you don’t need to do that…’ or… I dunno. Something?” Jin replied, and my grin broke to become laughter.
“Hi,” I said and tossed aside the now damp paper towel that was a soaked mess from the melted ice, it landed with a wet ‘splat’ noise on my floor and I stuck my hand out, “I’m Kayobi Taida and I don’t do chores, to include cooking, how are you and who are you?” I took his hand and gave it a vigorous shake as if we’d just met instead of known each other for a few years now.
He flushed bright red, “Alright, that’s fair, I had that coming.” He said and wiped his hand on his pants, “I’ll be back in a bit with something to eat.” He answered, and I pointed toward my cabinets in the kitchen area.
“Grab a plastic bowl, you know I’m-” He shook his head as I spoke.
“Not going to rinse the dish after eating, yeah, yeah, I know, we’ve met.” He said pointedly, then went, retrieved the disposable dish, and left my apartment.
An hour later I was chowing down on some pieces of roast and steamed vegetables flavored with garlic and sea salt while watching a jobless loser become a hero.
“Hmpf, like that’s realistic.” I said, and looked at my remote, it was just out of reach… all I had to do was lean over to get it, I held out my hand and teleported it into my palm, and pressed play to watch the next episode while I finished my meal and licked the bowl clean before throwing it toward my trashcan. It missed and rolled over the floor to fall onto its top a moment later after rolling around a few times in ever smaller circles.
“Whatever.” I shrugged, and dozed off watching the show.
I was awakened the very next morning by the knock at the door after having fallen asleep on the couch. The heavy pounding was almost panicked and for a moment that ‘morning amnesia’ had control over my brain and I remembered nothing of the day before until I heard Jin’s voice.
“Hey, Kayobi… are you up?” He asked, and I grunted.
“Yeah, yeah, one minute.” I said, then stood up, stretched, yawned, bent backward and scratched my back, and only then did I open the door.
Jin, predictably, was perfectly made up, well dressed and clean and ready for school.
“Alright, just remember, I’m letting you handle all my clothes… so don’t do anything ‘perverted’ with them, and when a man is allowed to handle a woman’s clothes, he’s not allowed to say a word about it or do anything lewd to them, those are the rules.” I told him, but he clearly wasn’t in the mood to be amused.
“So… who is going with you…?” He asked, “Are you going to go see their parents or…what?”
“No, I’m just going to go have a word.” I replied, “Don’t worry about it, just be patient and get all my chores done for me, and I’ll handle this for you.” I promised.
I didn’t give him time to object, I just walked out the door in my pajamas and made a mental note, ‘It’s been like four days in these things… I should change out of them… and go to a bathhouse or something.’ I thought, magic could do the cleaning for my skin at least, but it wasn’t the same.
When I was sure I was out of his sight and I didn’t detect anyone around me, my body shifted, changed, and I was no longer Kayobi Taida, I was Jin Toriyama, I even managed the uniform look with a little obfuscation magic.
“I hate mornings.” I mumbled as I descended down the wooden steps that carried me to the ground floor and headed toward the common road that would lead to Jin’s school. He hadn’t exactly said where the bullies had picked on him, but he didn’t really have to. If they wanted to avoid teacher interference then it was most likely at the playground right off school grounds where some old equipment still lay around.
Nothing dramatic, a rusted merry-go-round, a rusty slide that burned your butt in summer, and a set of swings that would probably treat a toddler as if they had the density of a neutron star and collapse under their weight.
All that people really used there anymore were a few old picnic tables because at least the creek was nice.
I walked along the road until I caught sight of them, the wind was a little chilly, and I didn’t care for it, so I held my arms across my body for warmth, ‘I wish I’d had him swap clothes with me, his jacket would probably be warm.’ Their uniform jackets were blue and had the school insignia of a gold coin inscribed with the face of a snow monkey, the school mascot, I suppose.
They had on straight black ties and black pants as part of the outfit, anyone looking at them would know what school they went to, not that there were many out here anyway. Small towns are nice for quiet lives.
I’d seen them first, but it didn’t take long before they spotted Jin… which is to say… me.
They were chatting to each other, I vaguely caught some amused laughter, rude gestures, and I think they were saying some rude things about Jin.
“Hey so… you came back after all…” The tallest of the trio approached front and center, hands in his pockets, leaning forward, he towered over Jin’s frame, and he was a lot stronger looking. He wore a cocky smirk on his face and said, “Hey, your eye healed up real good, real fast… it looks like you can get two for the price of one tod-”
He never saw my fist connect with his face.
But he sure felt it, and he tumbled onto his back, grabbing for his injured nose. His buddies, scruffy people with the unshaven beards of youths who hadn’t really learned how to use razors yet, but needed to, had enough time to look surprised before I caught them both around their necks and yanked them together, their heads cracked, and they collapsed in a heap over the top of their big bad.
I hopped over to the top of the heap and sat on the back of the peak of the pile, drawing a grunt of surprise.
“You sonofa- get off me!” He shouted all of a sudden, and I planted my heel on his already broken nose. He shouted with pain.
“Listen to me or the next one goes on your throat.” I said quietly in the sort of voice I used when I felt like monologuing on a painting job. He went very still.
“I got permission to fight back, I held back before so I wouldn’t kill you guys, but now I’m allowed to defend myself, so I won’t hold back anymore. I get to use my real strength and my real skills.” He was trying to wiggle free under the weight of myself and his friends, but I was quietly using a little gravity magic to increase the weight, there was a hundred eighty-one kilograms on the punk right now, and I was increasing it a little at a time so that it would be instructive without causing any permanent damage.
The confusion on his face was priceless, “So… no more of yesterday. Not for me, not for anyone else.” I frowned as he wiggled like a worm on a hook, “I’m waiting.”
He grunted and groaned as the pressure continued to weigh on him.
“Yea-gh! No more, alright! We won’t try anything anymore!” He shouted.
“Swear.” I demanded.
“I swear!” He said, watching my foot hovering over his neck was probably the most terrifying moment of his life, and I was convinced.
“Good. I don’t want to have to do this with anyone else either. And I don’t want anyone else to know what I can really do. So from now on, you’re responsible for making sure I don’t have to, and tomorrow, you’re going to publicly apologize to me and everybody else you’ve done this to. And if anybody tries to bully anyone else… you’re going to step in and stop it. You and your friends here.”
The confusion etched on his face… I wanted to laugh so hard…it was like he’d just found out that down was up and up was down after a lifetime of being wrong.
“I-” He stopped.
“Swear it!” I demanded.
“I swear!” He shouted. “Now will you please just get off! We never would have done that if we’d known you were strong in the first place! I’m sorry!”
I pushed myself off the unconscious pair and stood up, “You know that makes you super weak, right?” I asked.
“Whuh…” He stopped struggling as the spell vanished and I hauled the two unconscious friends off of him, I then held a hand down, to offer him a hand up.
“If all you ever do is pick on weak people, you’re weak too, like… who is stronger, who is braver or more impressive, the guy who stomps on a beetle, or the guy who slays a lion?” I asked, and it seemed he understood my analogy.
“That’s the difference between feeling strong, and being strong.” I said as I hauled him up to his feet as if he weighed absolutely nothing… thanks to a little gravity magic for a moment, he really didn’t.
I reached up and touched the eye on my face he’d left swollen before on Jin, “If you just want to feel tough, you’ll never ‘be’ tough. Now… I’ve got to head home and take care of my mom. She's sick today, but I’ll be back tomorrow. I won’t mention this fight to anyone. If anyone asks, I’ll pretend to be ignorant, like I don’t know what anyone is talking about. But you hold up your end of the bargain tomorrow.”
He hung his head, “Yeah, yeah I will…” He mumbled.
“Oh, and call someone to get these two, they will probably wake up in a few minutes,” I said and pointed to the still sleeping pair, “but they should be checked out anyway. Just say they had an accident horsing around on the equipment here, and fell into each other head first. That should explain it all.”
He gave a numb, mute nod, and I turned around to walk back the way I came. ‘That was easier than I thought, and I didn’t even have to listen to a monologue in order to get all my chores down today. Lucky me!’ I thought and hummed contentedly all the way back to my apartment, swaggering in just as I got rid of the shift to Jin and back to my preferred body… and dispelled the magic that disguised my dirty pajamas as his school uniform.
“Hey uh… so you’re back… are you… alright?” He asked and looked me up and down like he was searching for evidence of injury.
I smiled bright as the sun, “Yes, no problem, I gave them a firm talking to about proper behavior, they’re very sorry for what they’ve done, and they’ll be apologizing to you tomorrow, to you and everybody else too.”
“Wait… your… serious?” Jin asked me, his mouth agape, I laughed, approached, and patted his cheek with my palm.
“Yup, not to worry, they won’t bother you or anyone else again. But you still have to stay off work today and finish everything for me!” I hastened to add… “That includes going to the store and getting me some more chips, cookies, some ramen cups, uh…” I quickly began ticking things off that I wanted… it was a bit long, and when I was done he said…
“I don’t mind giving you a discount on stuff at my mom’s store, but I can’t buy all that!” He exclaimed.
“No, you use my card.” I explained, then went to my room, pulled out a prepaid card, and handed it to him. “Try to get everything on the list, will you? Now, I’ve got some shows that won’t watch themselves!” I said and flopped myself down on the couch to watch some poor sap die again and again and again while he simped over a half-elf.
It was shaping up to be a damn fine day, one full of amusement as Jin kept eyeing me as if he suspected I were some sort of alien or something. Nutty thought, am I right?

2023.05.28 18:59 Chalkarts The Manifesto of Meh.

I wrote this after a brief exchange here and wanted to share it. It is my hope to bring some peace of mind to the community. Amongst you there will be eyerolls and those who just cannot accept this philosophy, I expect that. But, in the spirit of this entry, meh. I hope some of you see the value.

Meh is regimented Apathy.
It’s a method of acceptance and effortless living.
If you find yourself in an unfortunate situation, or emotionally hurt or rejected, fall back on the 10 year rule of Meh. If it’s not going to be important enough to affect your life 10 years from now, then it’s not important now. Flunking out of college will affect your future, throw a little effort at it. Some girl at the bar turning you down, meh. In ten years you won’t even remember that she existed.
Only 3 things really matter at the end of the day.
Hospitals, Homelessness, and Prison.
Avoid those 3 things and the rest is window dressing.
Your wardrobe isn’t important. High fashion is high effort. Dress comfy, the only people that care about your shoes are people who spent too much on theirs. Have fun, doing the things you enjoy doing, and don’t make anyone's day worse in the process.
This isn’t nihilism. This isn’t saying “nothing ever matters”.
Those 3 things matter most and a great many things go into avoiding them therefore matter by association.
For example, in the case of Homelessness, your job.
Your job matters because it helps to prevent you from becoming homeless. In most cases, Income is necessary for housing. Therefore, maintain hygiene, go to work, and play the silly game where you pretend that your coworkers are interesting and you enjoy being there. Then you go home and forget the job until you have to remember it again. Turn off your phone, get a faraday bag if you have the means. They can’t bug you if you disconnect. If your job demands you be available 24/7, it’s not a job. That’s indentured servitude.
A cleanish house matters because filth can lead to an infestation which can lead to eviction. If your landlord does inspections and sees a pile of dirty take out containers overflowing the trash can beside the couch, they may not renew your lease. Don’t leave food lying around.
Familial relationships can also be important for preventing the loss of housing. If possible, be at least on friendly terms with some family members. If the universe tries to knock you down(it will), have a couch to fall back on.
Avoiding hospitals can be more difficult because emergencies happen. The universe may decide to relabel out of date sushi, or hit you with an SUV, but those are things that you can’t control and must be endured. Meh doesn’t have the power to overcome a shattered spine, you’ll need to care about that one.
Avoiding hospitals is more about not doing unnecessarily hazardous things.
“I wonder if it would be fun to go for a jog through this dog park wearing a meat suit?”
Don’t do stupid dangerous shit. Don’t try to beat the yellow at the intersection, or jaywalk across a 5-lane. If you see an angry mob coming your direction, get out of the way. Those people have no Meh.
Staying out of prison should be the easiest of the big three to manage.
Just, Don’t do crime.
No one really cares if you smoke weed.(depending on location) Very few people consider that crime any more. But know your limits. Don’t smoke while on a stroll through the park or at the grocery store.
Don’t do REAL crime. If it’s not your stuff, leave it alone. Don’t hurt people that don’t hurt you first(Physically. emotional harm falls under the umbrella of meh.) Just stay off of the radar and out of the system as much as you can. When the cop randomly runs your ID, try and make his screen come up blank or boring.
Particularly avoid doing things that double or triple up.
“Imma spend all my money on this car, race it at 150mph through town, and plow it into a tree.” You are now in the hospital, broke and without transportation which will leave you homeless, and the cops want to have a talk when you wake up...You did this to you.
Beyond those scenarios, Meh.
Don’t waste effort, physical or mental, on things that don’t matter.
A coin is the ultimate expression of meh.
What do I want for lunch, Mexican or Burgers? *plink* Heads, Mexican it is. I keep an old Eisenhower dollar coin I found in my wallet at all times just for meaningless decisions.
If you don’t make anyone’s day worse by being you people may not flock to you but they’ll probably accept you. “Yeah, that’s Dave, he’s alright.” is superior to “Ugh, Dave's coming, let's go.” It takes more effort to ruin someone's day than it does to just nod, smile, and walk on by. You don’t need to make small talk, just look busy enough to be left alone.
Once you’ve fulfilled the bare minimum requirements to avoid being homeless, hospitalized, or imprisoned, you’re good. Do fun stuff. Whatever your fun stuff is, games, museums, clog dancing with dogs, it’s all good. As long as you are harming no one with the results of your actions, Meh. Find the places where the fun stuff lives. Go to those places. No more effort is required. Go to those places often enough, the other people there will come to know you. Once they’ve come to know you, do something to make their day better, no matter how miniscule, and they’ll come to love you.
Go to the craft aisle for a second while you’re at the store already, get a cheap bulk sheet of peel and stick googly eyes. Cut it up into pairs, and just hand 'em out at work or school. It will brighten peoples day for an insignificant amount of effort.
Is it buying friends? Kinda, but for .05 per person, it’s pretty affordable to see who sticks around.
They may not bang you, but you won’t be alone.
We live in an era of unprecedented connection, yet feel entirely disconnected. Meh, let the good times roll and see who they bounce off of.
It's philosophy that has served me well for 30 years. I recently read about Bai Lan(let it rot) and had to laugh. Many Chinese youth have weaponized Meh as a way to invoke social change. When I first read it I thought, "I've been doing that for decades. Mehehe"
I hope this helps someone here.

2023.05.28 18:59 Amazing-Monk6278 Podcast and good argument against arguments that say adhd doesn’t exist

I’ve been listening to Huberman Lab podcasts which have been really interesting. He talks through a podcast around ADHD which is worth a listen to. Some really interesting advice and ideas around why we are the way we are. Just to point out that he uses irrefutable evidence that adhd exists. The majority of people who say that ADHD are uneducated or do not have any evidence to show that they believe ADHD is not real. Andrew Huberman is an American Scientist and Associate Professor in the Neurobiology and Psychiatry and behavioural sciences at Stanford University which is the 5th in the world rankings. We should really take alternative views with a pinch of salt when people make assumptions with such poor research and knowledge.

2023.05.28 18:58 prettylittlekiko How the fuck do you cope with not knowing anyone like you in real life?

Just tired of not being able to be myself around my family and friends. I also got hobbies, but they only serve as a distraction. I seek genuine relationships with likeminded people, but can’t seem to find any or when I do, they’re just not as interested as I am. For those going through the same, how do you guys cope?

2023.05.28 18:57 FireyDeath4 To my knowledge, there are ABSOLUTELY NO #2 GOLDEN WILD CARDS

Hello! I need your help to figure this out!
I am an avid collector of Hungry Jack's Uno cards. After all, who doesn't want [[W1LD PR123]]? I've gotten a lot of Uno cards from Hungry Jack's. I'd say around 10% of them actually came from orders I got. The majority of them came from unpeeled packets in the bins. Yes, that's right. Around half of everyone is throwing their rather precious cards away, just leaving them in the bins to be found either by me, or expired in landfill. Of course, I'm not surprised, since many of them throw away unfinished chips, drinks, hash browns, and even entire ununwrapped burgers (the latter of which I ate in the past two days) - the much more shocking and appalling thing that baffles me to this day.
Last year and this year, I've gotten a lot of gold WILD cards from Hungry Jack's, but here's the thing:
I have not seen a single #2 gold WILD card in my life - either physical or photographic.
As of the time of writing this, I have... lemme count - *counts gold WILD cards* - 38 of them. That's a lot! They would help greatly in getting me monies to pay back the equivalent of game show prize money stolen by the adorable but sentimentally manipulative and utterly trollish deceased kitty for completely futile vet care, except for one thing. Every single one of them is either a #1 or a #3. There are no #2's. Furthermore, I've looked on eBay listings for Hungry Jack's Uno cards, and of course they're selling a lot of gold WILD cards in there too! Yet, it seems like nobody on the site seems to have noticed that every single listing there is also either #1 or #3. I thought I saw a #2 mentioned in passing, but actually it was just like "collect T2 & T1".
I've been wondering if they have to be acquired through alternative means. Maybe they can only be gotten through drive-thru orders! But that's just silly. Probably half of everyone goes through there, and I'm sure I would've found at least ONE in a bin somewhere already. Can they only be gotten through second chance draws? Probably not. You can only submit the cards on the webpage, which requires photos of all three cards. Are they only available at different joints or states? I went to a different one one time and looked through the bins, but there weren't many cards to start with. Also, I called the HJ Uno helpline about all this, and they said they honestly couldn't tell, since they didn't foresee the distribution process, but surely it should be fair, right? Right???
So there you have it. No #2 cards to be found at all. Is it sort of a scam? Not sure if it'd matter to me personally, since I have a crap ton of instant win prizes I'm not gonna use most of and want to sell, but this is rather miffy nonetheless. Last year I got like five I1 cards. And a few I3 ones. I was so close to winning, yet so far. It's weird to me how the gold WILD cards, which are not even there in regular Uno, are much more common in Hungry Jack's than the actual regular WILD cards, which are for winners of big prizes. I kinda think it should be the other way around. I've also never seen a black HJ Uno card before in my life, and I've kinda wondered if #2 cards are actually as rare as those (which I have essentially no way to find out, except through pure serendipity). If I do find one that'll be pretty handy.
Can anyone tell me what's going on here?

Hey all. Hope you're having a relaxing Sunday.
I read about a codependence podcast in a comment on this sub but now I can't seem to find it. I'll look for it again soon enough, I suspect it won't be too hard to track down.
Anyways, I wanted to ask for podcast recommendations about healing/ emotions/ motivation/ relationships/ habits/ surviving abuse, etc. that you listen to?
Some of the ones I like are:
Heart Wisdowm Podcast - Jack Kornfield
Jillian on Love - Jillian Turecki
The Art of Accomplishment - Joe Hudson and Brett Kistler
The Happiness Lab with Dr. Laure Santos
The Science of Happiness - The Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley
I'd recommend any of these to you all, except maybe Heart Wisdom, that's a little more buddhist esoteric and a little harder to get into. The rest are all great and cover a variety of topics. My favorite is The Art of Accomplishment.
