Bonus if you could explain how to force yourself into it! Thanks
Edit: Since it seems like a lot of people struggle with this problem too, just want to cheer everyone on whatever you’re struggling with. There’s some great answers on this thread, good luck!
I can’t be the only one, right? I’m at my best out doing things and I think I’d be so much happier living back before there was the distraction of the internet and netflix, before there was so much thinking involved in just keeping up with daily life. I would have so much rather worked on a farm or something (and before someone says I don’t know how hard it is, I grew up working part time taking care of animals on farms, lived in a rural area, and spent most of my chidlhood working at horse barns or farm-sitting.) Unfortunately in today’s world you can’t just do that. Because you have to pay health insurance, and rent, and taxes, and you can’t just run off and buy/start a farm. Not easily, at least.
I don’t even care that I’d have a life expectancy of 30 something because heck, I’m almost there and I cannot imagine trying to keep up this constant daily struggle of never being enough for 40+ more years.
Edit: Right, so because I’m an idiot I just picked an arbitrary number, not re... keep reading on reddit ➡
I (27F) have been married to my husband (29M) for 4 years. We have a 3 year old daughter.
My husband was abusive to me from the beginning. He was also quite manipulative, and convinced me (who already had very low self esteem) that he was my only chance at love and that I could never find someone better. He also regularly physically abused me. Before the marriage, I tried to leave him once, but he stormed to my family's house and dragged me back into his car. He has even threatened to kill me if I ever left him again.
I put up with all of his abuse because I loved him. Also he was a handsome, rich trust-fund baby so everything about him looked good on paper. But about four months ago, I decided I was tired of the abuse and secretly drew up plans to get divorced.
Just about a month after that, my husband got an MRI after a head injury and it showed that he also had a brain tumour. He went into surgery to have it removed. After the surgery, his personality is like "night and day". He... keep reading on reddit ➡
Before I begin, can I preface this by saying that I adore Bruce's passion for the game. And I'm not trying to ether him out of existence here. But after being relatively spoiled with five consecutive matches of Foxtel commentary for Collingwood games I was disappointed to see that we had the traditional Seven Sunday arvo fixture for our big clash with Carlton. And the more I tuned in throughout the match, the more I picked up on Bruce's incessant rhetorical questions.
I know he's been doing it for years. He has a cacophony of catchphrases (some of which I've included below) which grate the ears. His biggest issue now is that it's become second nature for these questions in particular to be asked of his fellow commentators ad nauseum. He craves reassurance from everyone else on the commentary team. This is illustrated with the quite frankly crazy amount of times he refers to his fellow callers by name. He doesn't need to lead Jimmy Bartel or Luke Hodge into their statements every time... keep reading on reddit ➡
Basically what the title said.
IF YOU WASTE YOUR MONEY ON REDDIT REWARDS YOU DIDN'T DESERVE THAT MONEY IN THE FIRST PLACE.
The kid got a shit ton of idiotic redditors to give him gold and its always funny to see people waste their money on useless crp.
I guess you can say faking brain cancer was messed up, but i guess we all have different tolerances for stuff like that. People who like or hate dark humor for example.
Today an acquaintance (20y.o economy student) tried ending a debate about barbie dolls/cars toys for children. "Girls have a predisposition in their brain to like barbie dolls, and boys to like cars, it has absolutely nothing to do with upbringing or marketing, it's natural''
When I asked him if he had any proof about something like that (I will admit it might have been followed by a sarcastic ''because I'd love to know which part of my brain entitles me to love putting dresses on plastic dolls''), he started telling me that he had the right to an opinion, and that it was unfair that I attacked his opinion.
Thinking that girls should play with dolls and boys with cars is an opinion, and as much as I disagree, you're free to say that, I can't say it's 'false'. But honey when you start trying to use a ''scientific fact'' to prove your point, you give me the right to ask for specifications.
Anyway, it ended up with an older guy telling me to have kids and come back later ''to see if... keep reading on reddit ➡
