My best friend is an asshole and hate him.
Only when I stop to think About you, I know Only when you stop to think About me, do you know? I hate everything about you Why do I love you? You hate everything about me Why do you love me? 3DG
to completely love myself and not constantly compare myself to anyone else is personally one of the most hardest things i have to deal with. which kind of sounds tone deaf and 1st world but i've come to realise that its alot harder than just being said
The other day at work, a customer asked where everyone was getting masks. I told him we probably sold out and they got them earlier. For some reason he turned this around to black people wearing masks and said black people wearing masks ought to be shot. (I don't remember the exact wording but that's basically what he said). After I looked him straight in the face and lost any joking expression in my face, not willing to give even a courtesy chuckle or smile, he said (and this is a direct quote) "If there was a black guy wearing a mask in my neighborhood he'd be shot". I didn't want to escalate anything so I didn't engage and just tried to politely get him tf away from me. For context, I'm white. But just because I'm white doesn't mean I will ever laugh at racist jokes or think someone deserves to get shot because of the color of their skin. Keep in mind, in this joke's hypothetical situation, no one's life is in danger. No crime is being committed. The only "crime" is someone wearing a mask (same as everyone these days) but they're not white. I will never, ever believe someone deserves to be shot if a life isn't in immediate danger. It scares me that in 2020 some people think this is okay to joke about in public with strangers. This guy doesn't know me at all. He's not even enough of a regular for me to know his face. For all he knew, my husband's black and I've got 4 mixed babies at home. That's not the case, but he doesn't know that. My store has a diverse population with a lot of black and Latino customers. It's a miracle no one overheard him. If anyone would've overheard him, I don't think I could stop them from going batshit crazy on him. I posted this story and my thoughts on it to Facebook with the message "I don't think this applies to anyone on my friends list, but if you believe someone deserves to be shot based solely on the color of their skin, place of origin, and/or citizenship status, unfriend me now". I'm pretty sure someone blocked me. That's fine since I was getting tired of hiding and blocking all of the political crap she shared. I'm just kind of surprised she's a racist.
Motherfucking China! Damn coronavirus took everything from me. who the fuck eats bat soup!? Go eat something else! And if it's TRUE that it start because of a fucking shrimp, ma'am, you should've locked yourself up at your house!!!!
None of my friends ever get excited about the things that I get excited about. Conversations with Friend A are always about her, and when I try to talk about something that's important to me, she shortly acknowledges it but then immediately jumps to a topic that makes it impossible for me to talk about my stuff, because it's something like "I feel like killing myself again" that's impossible to ignore. Friend B is a one-upper, I don't think I have to explain that ("Oh congrats on your good work evaluation! I am getting promoted next Friday. But yours is good too!"). Friend C manages to make everything I get excited about sound boring as hell, like something that's already widely known and not worth talking about. Like when I found out that my ex boyfriend is the new anchor on a major TV channel, which was big news for me (because... how often do you see someone you know on TV?), she was like "yeah I've known that for ages, I think everybody does. He actually told my friend Harper a month ago. It's not like he's the new president." I'm so sick of never being allowed to be excited about anything. The cherry on top is that they constantly tell me to see a therapist because they fear I'm depressed. "You just never seem excited about anything!" Oh I wonder why not
as much as try I can't hate you tondo so would be hating my heart my soul. I hate the way you treated me. I wish I could hate you hating you would be hating a part of me.
He's everything I want everything I need he means nothing to me because he'll never be you

I'm in an online group that is based around costume building. It's a place for people to ask questions, get feedback, or just generally post progress pics of their costumes. Well one girl in particular has posted a few times asking for help because she's very lost on how to go forward, she's barely even started. I noticed no one was really acknowledging her anytime she posted. So I chimed in with some tips, sent her some example pics and a tutorial video link. Then she started talking to me about her personal life. And now she won't stop. This 16 year old girl is very sweet but I do not have the energy or time for an emotionally troubled person to latch on to me right now. But I feel guilty telling her to leave me alone, because she just needs a friend to talk to. But I'm 23 and I'm starting to worry she sees me as some kind of maternal figure to bring all of her problems to, even though in reality I'm basically a kid myself. Sorry for the long rant, I just... I hate this. Why can't I just be nice to people without them attaching themselves to me like leeches? Why am I a magnet for people who are beyond my help? Why do I have to be scared that I'll have to deal with another broken person latching on to me if I help them with a simple, unrelated task? I just want to be nice without turning into everyone's therapist.
