I've heard of so many girls cheating, my friends who are girls have cheated (most of them I think?), even the ones who don't overtly cheat play all sorts of fucked games. Idk I got dumped like 2 months ago and while the thing wasn't that serious to begin with, I can't get it out of my head that she's out there getting railed lol.

My buddy's girl of 2 1/2 years he found out today was fucking another guy for a year and a half of their relationship and she dumped him. How are there even people capable of that? And why does it feel like that's the fucking norm now? I'm afraid of getting into anything anymore because how the fuck do you trust? It's like they're all scheming ass emotionally driven animals. There's gotta be some good ones out there, right?!

I feel like my whole life I was taught like, okay this is how things are in relationships: monogamy is the norm, most girls are respectable and good to men. Lots of men are shitty, but there's still good dudes or whatever and they can do alright. It's starting to look like it's mostly shitty people out here and there's a couple of us non-shitty people. I do okay attracting girls and getting pussy or whatever but it just feels like love is just an idea that is super fucking rare and somehow made it into the mainstream... But it's not real, is it?

it depends on what you mean by intelligence. i'm talking about spiritual intelligence I suppose, and maybe you're talking about IQ. I'm talking about having sense. If you enjoy other people suffering then you don't have any. those are our enemies; violence is reserved to be used against people that are like that. they are a danger and a cancer to us. things are very flexible though, you can be a bad person one day and a good one the next. we know what behaviors are dangerous to us though.

it's so hard to actually make a lot of sense here though, in this setting. It's not worth writing a lecture about either when most of the people that will see it are suicidal or nihilists (fools) and will just ignore it to whine about their feelings instead

Boyfriend still jerks off to videos of himself fucking his exes. Regularly. One, particularly often. I don't doubt that he loves me, but it hurts.

Well....money is important, but its not everything right? Tell that to my fucking girlfriend.

Last night, it was my friends birthday. So we went over there and started drinking. While the four of us were drunk, all of a sudden came up a topic about money. Now, I work at a company as online customer support. Writing tickets, chats, social media etc..maybe I don't make a TON of money but I make enough to get by, feed my daughter, pay all the bills and from time to time buy my girlfriend something nice. Not too bad but of course, it could always be better. Among us was my friends, boyfriend. He is a self taught programmer that works at a small but expanding company making about 10- 15k a month. The problem I have here is that whenever this topic about money comes up, my girlfriend always tell me "you should apply at his company" "you would make so much more money" because he mentioned that they are looking for people at his job with good English skills (We are in Poland and I am an ex pat) and I would be a perfect fit there and make more money then I already am. The thing is, I like my job that I have. I like the people, the atmosphere and so on and just recently I found out that I have an opportunity in the same company that I am in, doing something different like Marketing and my new salary would be up for negotiation.

When people are drunk they say some dumbass shit, but however dumb or ignorant a person may sound when they are drunk, there is always a bit of truth in what they are saying to you. During this conversation about money, my girlfriend and my friends boyfriend basically kept belittling me (at least that's how I fucking felt) by the dude saying "you make how much? pshhh, I make like four times that amount" and my girlfriend was like "you are never going to make more money in the company you work at" "you are never going to get anywhere" "you should expand your horizons and look for a new job in the meantime"

I kept trying to explain to them my point of view on doing what you like to do as a profession that "if you like what you do, you never have to work a day in your life" they just didn't fucking get it. I…

I totally understand that you feel hurt, to have your girlfriend and friends gang up on you like that would make my blood boil. Your happiness shouldn't be compromised for monetary gain either way, and as your partner she should be able to respect and understand that. If you have financial issues, I would get her point of view more, but it seems like you got your shit together.

I don't know about your friend tho, when I think about it, he might just want to have a friend in the office and try to grease you with money, which is pretty understandable in a way. I don't know him of course, and from where I'm sitting it's equally plausible that he was just acting like an asshole.

But lay all of that frustration aside. You should smile man! Think about it, while they are spending 5-10 hours a day being discontent at work, you're not. While they are tricked to believing economic gain is the highest virtue they can aspire to, you're doing something you're passionate and comfortable with. Is it any wonder that they may act miserable once in a while?

Try to explain to your girlfriend in a calm matter, this isn't anything worth arguing over, just be as confident as you were about your job when you wrote this and explain that you see more potential and happiness for you both if you rather stay where you are and try to hit that promotion you wanted.

Honestly, does she want a pair of extra shoes, but have to deal with you being pissed off and sad because you just spent your day doing something you loathe? I doubt it, if she truly understood how you felt about it.

I wish you both the best.

This is the kind of shit you really just need to let go man. They were obviously being obnoxious, and the worst kind of argument you can have with friends and loved ones are those uncompromising kinds, where there are two sides and neither budges either way. Not to say that you should have budged or anything, but it just ends up being like you described: the argument goes on and on and then it just keeps going because it's just both sides stating their view over and over, and consequently they just kept telling you (or you just kept hearing) that you were not doing enough, not earning enough, not progressing enough etc. It's clearly set in and now you resent them both a lot. You have to forgive people for the stupid shit they say and the infuriating ways they can behave, or honestly not even forgive them but just really let that moment disappear, having to suffer those cunty types of indignities is just a part of life and I know that real agonising thought pattern that you're going through the next day, where you're just playing it over and over and getting annoyed all over again.

Just fucking meditate man. Not trying to be a total meme either. I just mean get rid of it, use those basic YouTube CBT steps and at least program the memory to stay out of the front of you brain. Remember also to find comfort/relief from the strength of your convictions. You say that you're doing something you genuinely enjoy and you've clearly articulated your philosophy behind it, great! now you just need to live it and let it put any nagging memories to bed.

Your girlfriend was definitely being a bitch by trying to call you out in front of others. In part it comes from a desire to see you do well, but unfortunately it also comes from the desire we all have to want to show off our partner, she may be more superficial than you, so you might want to take issue with that if it's really something that's going to bother you in the long run. Otherwise let it fade away because it will.

I dont really know but listening to a polish expat colleague it sounds like most of the poles make dogshit money and have a shitty time.

So I dont know where you are from but maybe you had more money when you were growing up. So you know that it's not important because you had it before. Whereas maybe the poles haven't had much money in their lives and so value it more. Dunno.

Ex emailed me----I'm in a new relationship now. Should I reply to her email, or ignore it? I don't want to get back with my ex. My current gf is 100x better than her. But I don't hate my ex, is it wrong to reply to her? I kind of want to just tell her to try the dating site I used since it worked out so well for me. IDK, my instinct says to just delete the email thoughts?

More likely she's going through a rough patch and wonders if the feelings imbalance is still there so she can get some tide her over sex from someone she knows isn't a completely worthless human being.

Or she may genuinely just want to know. You were a significant part of her life and maybe she just wonders.

You can answer but be cool. Talking to exes isn't a no go, but you need to respect your current partner. Maybe "in passing" just mention your new girl is nice. Continue like your ex is an old friend. If she starts hitting on you and she knows you're seeing someone else in a non open relationship then she's not respecting that person. At that point you should probably tell her to knock it off (pointing her at the dating site maybe) or just stop talking. As far as your current girlfriend goes consider that she probably won't be thrilled your ex is in touch but unless she's unreasonable she should be at least okay if you made it clear you're not available pretty early on. If she finds out another way she'll be more upset and considering you're worried.

You know what. Here's the best solution for the sake of your relationship: Ask your current girlfriend what to do. Tell her what you told us. "You're 100 times better but I don't hate her. I kind of want to point her at the dating site" see what the current one says. This can "go wrong" but only if your current girlfriend isn't all she's cracked up to be.

I've done it before, a long time ago, and I know it's shitty, but fuck feels bad man. Getting ghosted by a long time online friend, second one in a year. It's tempting to see that as a pattern and think "hmm maybe you're the common denominator" but I don't think so. Minor arguments, nothing really heated, then suddenly NO contact and a block.

Can't even try to talk it out at that point. It's so selfish. I understand being sensitive and needing a little time to cool off, but ghosting is so extreme. Makes me wonder how little they thought of me the whole time, ya know?

I have other friends, it just really blows to lose a friendship like that. No warning, no conversation, just gone. Anyway, just talking into the void to get it out.

That's nothing, I ghosted all of my real-life friends over a two-year period, until I got to the point of not speaking to any of them.

They didn't even do anything, the friendships just sort of naturally died over time, and I decided to stop trying to force it.

How does one deal with the fact knowing the girlfriend/fiance has sucked other various cocks with the same lips that kiss you, has been dominated by other various men before, has been cummed in her mouth by various other cocks in the past?
This is killing me lol, as funny as it may sound. I will never love her truly and it sucks. To make things worse, she was the one who literally told me about all this stuff in the start of our relationship.

Hey guys!

It's me again. Some of you might recognize the way I'm writing and what I'm writing about, since I'm back here almost every autumn and winter. Earlier I've been writing about heavy depression, isolation, things like that. This is unsurprisingly in the same vein.

So, I've been moving around a lot. It's usually because when fall arrives, I get crippling depression and have to move back home to my parents, but when spring arrives I want to get my life in order and get something going, you know.

This summer I felt more confident than I've done in years, I moved into my friends house, tried to get a job I wasn't able to land anything despite several good job interviews. So I've been very stressed out about bills and economy, things like that. Recently I've also been to a court case, because I witnessed a murder in the spring, when I (quite unsuccessfully) tried to improve my grades from high school so I could be finished with it. It didn't really phase me then and there, but after re-living events in the trial I got pretty exhausted in a way. This hasn't gone away, and I've started to become increasingly depressed and been contemplating being institutionalized, or moving back home.

The thing is, how much more moving back and forth can I keep doing? It's incredibly expensive to have that as a habit, especially for my parents who usually have to help me out economically through the moving period, it really fucks with my self-esteem to be 23 and still be fucking nowhere in life, also living in my childhood-room doesn't really give me the confidence or incentive to meet girls, and I'm honestly a incredibly lonely person that valuate myself a lot according to how my life in romance is doing, and I haven't had sex in maybe two years now.

On the other side, I don't think I can live here with my friend as I am depressed. He has a career, a kid that's here every now and then, and I know that my mood will affect his mood. This goes both ways luckily, and more often than not we cheer eachother a bit up instead of glooming eachother down. He is very kind, and I know that he would be bummed if I had to go still, also he'd lose income as I pay as a tenant.

Now I've used a lot of time and energy on creating ties with the local psychiatric facility, which is honestly just a little team of psychiatric nurses, so it's also the whole stress about opening up to a brand new team of people and get the local unemployment-office to help me with my psychiatric bills and etc etc.

Well seasonal depression is a thing and can be treated easily. Have you looked into that? Lamps that emit light on bands you just don't get in normal indoors lighting.

However there's also just that life sucks during the short cold days, a lot of friends go out less especially the settled ones. It sounds like your life isn't quite what you want it to be and that's probably bringing you down. I'm not sure you need institutionalising but you do need to learn how to manage your shit and break certain negative thought patterns.

Bottling it up is not a viable long term solution. This is where a counsellor, not someone who will prescribe you drugs, might help. It might be that some CBT plus not suffering light illness will help you not get weighed down under what is day to day misery. The sort that might bring someone down a bit but shouldn't shut them down. Because it's normal and a lot of people feel it. And I wonder if (someone who knows more and can talk to you about it) in part it's another thing you beat yourself up about making you sadder. You can always book the appointment a bit earlier when you're in an upswing not as it starts to end.

I think you should tell your parents some of this. If they understand that you don't like leaning on them, that you really do want to progress and this status quo is something you want to change they might have more patience, respect or give you benefit of the doubt. Don't tell them everything but think about what you can tell them that might help them understand you better. Maybe you should try to stick it out and explain why but have them ping you once a week to confirm things are fine. If you don't respond for too long or say "shits bad" or something or they suspect something is amiss they can visit you but you can try to hang in. But it depends if you think this is a reasonable option. Maybe you need to go once around and make sure you do all the stuff right this time. Maybe the sun lamp will work. If you do need to do it again later you might want your parents on board to remind you when that upswing starts to start taking action THEN.

I've been wondering if it might be seasonal depression, and I tried to get ahold of such a lamp one or two years ago. I don't remember the specifics, but I couldn't get ahold of one because I needed to have it prescribed or something, or else it was too expensive. Do you know what those lamps are called? Because it's without a doubt a very good idea, and I'm 100% sure that seasonal changes fucks with my brain hardcore. Especially since I live in fucking Scandinavia.
You're completely right in that life isn't going the way I was hoping, and I don't like where I'm at right now. It's just that all of these constant setbacks makes it impossible to get anywhere. It feels pretty impossible at least, I know people in way way way way worse conditions that have pulled themselves up and all that, I'm just seemingly unable to because my mental health is so inconsistent from week to week and month to month. I try not to beat myself up over it, but it's just so hard when you're so envious of everyone else, even tho I know on a cognitive level that everyone is, partly, suffering. Luckily my parents are pretty aware of my mental issues, seeing as they've been taking care of me through months where I couldn't go outside or let alone get up from the couch. I know they care, I just also don't want to make them sad or worried about me, because I really want them to be happy and don't feel like they let me down. Moving back home is way more problematic for me than for them, which is honestly kinda lucky I guess.
This is very sage advice either way, and I appreciate you took the time to help me, I really needed to vent and to just feel like someone heard/read my thoughts made me feel a lot better. :) I really fucking hope I'll be able to manage my shit and pull on my big boys pants soon, and maybe this is the turning depression where I'll finally understand what's going on and how to actively come to terms with it.

I googled "seasonal affective disorder lamps" and found a load. The price for one which has been scientifically tested and approved is around £100 so about 3 euros I guess. Seriously though they're not cheap but they aren't super expensive and don't need a prescription. I suspect the more depressed you tried to rationalise not doing anything though. Scandanavia is pretty much the worst place in the world for seasonal affective disorder (the name for it). I don't think this is your only problem but I think it's part of it.

If there's things which have a genuine chance of helping you long term and your parents can see that I suspect they'll be happy to help to the extent they can. It's possible one of them actually suffers in a much milder form than you but because your brain shuts down they don't notice. Maybe if this does help you it'll help them directly too.

October 2017
  • deep in the void of 6 months into unemployed, isolating myself, no chicks, no social life, no nothing not even weed, would wake up and porn, Netflix & Xbox (not even forums), contemplating suicide because I got sectioned for the 2nd time. I was moving so little that I’d lose my balance walking and my hands hurt from Xbox. Didn’t think I was going to move on from my ex.

October 2018
  • been working out, had sex / mini relationships with a few chicks this year, been drawing a lot, got a job that gives me 20-30hrs a week, social, confident, doing fun things. Still broke, still a bit of a loser for my age / level of education but fuck it.

Idk, I remember some of my posts here last year and felt like celebrating. Things are better, things got better. Things are going to continue to get better.

If u going through something, give yourself the time required to make a change. Small steps lead to big progress n all that.

I'm currently starting a new chapter in my life and getting my life together. I'm tapering off opiates, lost 85lbs, working out in the gym again. I'm looking into getting my GED too.

I have been in a dark place for a couple months in terms of depression. But, I know that the only way things will change is if I work for it. No magical event is going to happen that's going to make your life turn 180* and everything is good. That's what I've realized.

Theirs always light in darkness. You just have to look for it.

i'm just kidding my lad

i only made this post because i wanted to call someone else my lad

but seriously you're doing an incredible thing there

i recommend meditating. there is absolutely no benefit in saturating yourself with things like despair.
also make the effort to see the positive things, what you still have, because this is what determines your life experience

I meditated yesterday and today. Its helping me a lot. I feel a bit more balanced and grounded. I know the more I do it the greater the reward is. I meditated everyday for 1 year straight. So, I know what it can do for someone.
