I sometimes change my whatsapp status to something that apparently makes no sense just so it looks like I have friends I have inside jokes with.
When I was 14, I told one of my friends about a creepypasta I had read completely without warning (and I had never talked about any remotely gory media with this friend so I had no reason to assume that she would be interested in that stuff). I literally just said "I read a story where a girl murders and eats her friend" like it was a normal thing to say and, understandably, she said nothing. I was so stupid. Talking about creepy stuff like that just because I was obsessed with that story... I wish I could have un-creeped her out somehow but I couldn't think of anything.
My best friend is starting to annoy me with her problems. She constantly talks about how she thinks she's ugly and about not having a boyfriend. Lately there has been basically no other topic. And of course I know that, as a friend - and as the only friend she can talk to about this, because she doesn't know many people - I should be there for her. But it's getting harder and harder. Nothing helps; not telling her she's beautiful, not giving her specific tips on how to change what she doesn't like, not just listening and agreeing and being her shoulder to cry on. She's stuck in her self hatred and just doesn't shut up about it. But telling her to stop would probably be really damaging, so I can't do that.
So frustrated..... I have been started looking in to careers where I need to have at least gone to College to do. I am in my mid 30s and starting late yes I know. But I am so sick and tired of people telling me because of my age I need to aim lower. I'm sorry I had kids vey young and I don't have the option to go to school and now it looks more possible than ever before. I am lookinging into a couple different programs.I just wish they wouldn't tell me I am being unrealistic it's not like I am looking to have a doctorate....
I will argue with anyone about anything, just put which side you want me to take in the comments. NOTE: If the argument turns into insults I will abandon it, I want to practice my debate skills, not get angry. Thanks!
I got bullied at this social media. Two of my friends. My friend though experienced depression and had an attempt suicide. Me well honestly, I was diagnosed with depression in the past I just became too aware of how my depression would start in the situation and honestly, now that I know I kinda created a new personality. I was like "screw these bullies, I'm just sooooo lazy I really don't want to bother with the words anymore. If you let me avoid using any social media, so be it at least I have lesser distraction with my studies. And your no life situation left me busy and successful literally like some recent situations just the past days, I passed all my classes and got an award something I never have done before. And please! I literally went on ended up studying Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Knife throwing, and gun shooting so that ya'll bullied ever chase me I know how to fight back. I literally have mastered one martial art, practicing the other three." And I might new friends that introduced me to learn new hobbies and went places. Like their bullying continues to spread online but honestly I don't care because I only care my own success and helping out my friend now. Their life must be shitty they're spreading it onto others but then I'm like, " man bullshit I always get bullies it never ends whatever." it's still hard on the other hand because I feel like the paranoia chase me sometimes but if ever I hope I found a new way to redirect those negativities and hope that at least these bullies learn some karma like theirs.... Right now I just want them to stop for my friend because she's suffering.
I have a friend who has really weird texting habits. He texts about once a month, sometimes less, sometimes a bit more, of you're lucky. But it's not like he only asks for favors or something, then I'd understand what's going on. No, he always seems to be genuinely interested in getting back in touch again, asks how life's going, tells me about some problems he has, seems to be interested in just casual chatting... then I answer all his questions, ask him some, and get no reply until a month passes, and he starts an entirely new topic. I just don't get why someone would do this. I haven't asked him yet, because I am not sure if that would sound weird.
Could really use some advice. I don't really have friends and would really like to make some, problem is that I don't have good social skills and struggle with depression. I've always been quite quiet but have tried to make more of an effort recently. It's not been going well, I went to a few meet ups and because I get so anxious socially, especially with new people, I find it hard to make eye contact and my responses are either short and awkward or rambling verbal diarrhea. I'm so lonely. I'm embarrassed, angry and upset with myself for not having friends. So if anyone has any tips to help me become more likeable or how to make friends I'll gladly take it.
i wanna sit down next to a random person in a cafe and talk, but im afraid ill get harshly rejected and told to fuck off
So me and my guy friend are out and staying in one room for a couple of days. I told that to my sister and she said that it looks like we will be a live in partners or like married people. It is a weird thought that I can't get out of my mind. I can't see it like the way it is before..
