Don’t find fulfillment in your career. Find fulfillment in the hobbies you have, adventures you go on, and people you help because you have the financial freedom to do so. If you love your job that’s awesome, but this isn’t realistic for many people.
My point is, do we overemphasize the ability of individuals to make it to the top if they just try hard enough, within our current system? Is the system rigged, in a sense, so that trying and dedication aren't actually enough?

am i the only one that thinks this is completely fucked? we have a very heavily edited video released by the only party that knew there was a recording taking place. it would be so easy to wind someone up then just edit together their reactions. Then to just release it, not very grateful is it?
She really shouldn't be posting about her parents like this. If they have issues they should be resolving them amongst themselves. Get a family therapist. Don't go online and fuck your parents over like this. If they go broke, guess what, so will you
This is so toxic it isn’t even funny. It is not ok to show the world your problems at home for political theatre. I never liked Kellyanne Conway, but this makes me feel bad for the whole family. Teenage girls are the worst, and people who see what she selectively releases are being fooled.

LeBron responded on the same post: > There's a difference between constructive criticism and soft hating though. I've seen it both ways come my way, mostly the hate. You can hear it in their delivery.
Idk I have a hunch this is fueled by last night's comments from the TNT crew, mostly Shaq's awkward interaction with Donovan Mitchell.
I noticed that Slam Dunk Ernest (1995) is on YouTube to watch for free. This seems like a great deal, but I've never seen the preceding movies in the series. I'm thinking about checking it out, but I'm worried I may not fully understand the plot.
So is it worth checking out, or do I need to wait until I can watch the rest of the Ernest movies?
I notice many of them preface it with “I never realized until now” or blah blah. As if to repel us from wanting to be in their shoes. As if we should feel sorry that their wealth doesn’t cure their depression. That’s great that they realize this, but to post about it to tell us.. it just feels like a slap in the face.
No shit money doesn’t buy happiness. Happiness as a perpetual state isn’t even real. But it sure as fuck makes you comfortable, doesn’t it?
Money buys you full access to healthcare. It buys you opportunity. Power to make a bigger change. It buys impact. Hell, it could even buy you purpose. You can take as much time as you want to pursue anything that interests you, if you’re wealthy. It buys you second chances. Time. Etc.
I’m not trying to devalue their mental suffering, but when it comes to the subject of money being unhelpful for someone’s mental health... I beg to differ. And it’s almost insulting that they post these videos, knowing we are all in some need of money.
Once you have a lot of money, and buy all the things you want, you just start to realize that those things are just things. And once you become comfortable, you are with yourself again. And you are the same. So of course it will not transform you into this weirdly chipper person. You’re human.
I just... I hate hearing this. So much. It’s insulting to me. That’s just how I feel. You can disagree. But I’m sick and tired of hearing this shit from so many celebs/influencers. Read the room.
EDIT: I don’t know why people are thinking that I’m saying it buys happiness when I just said it doesn’t. It simply eases a difficult life. And can open up a path to satisfaction in many areas. I think with rich + famous people, there’s a time and place. And it’s offensive to say this to millions suffering due to lack of money. This is just a rant, sorry to those offended.
I (5'11") stand just a few inches taller than the average guy. A standard bathtub length is apx 5 feet and thats not even counting the hangover shelf or the slope. The actual length of your bathtub is just 4 feet. Odd you'd find it difficult to find that number on any search engine but go get a measuring tape and give it a go.
As I've gotten older, I've been fortunate enough to have continuously upgraded my living conditions. I have found that bathtubs directly correlate w/ social class!!!! What the absolute fuck, I dont remember being any shorter when I was broke and its not like adding a foot of length to a tub wouldn't be a welcomed trade even if it meant a foot taken from a closet or towel rack.
I know this will seem like I'm cracked and maybe I am but its this sort of shit that makes me want to turn this "social class cold war" into something far less passive. Been oppressed my whole life and thats fine, in a lot of ways I'm better for it but when the simplest of pleasantries like this are so smugly withheld...it doesn't make me want to "Hustler harder to get what I want", it makes me want to teach high society how short they are when tipped over.
Anyways, bathtubs em I rite???
Edit: Seems like a lot of people hate their tubs too! Follow up question for my fellow 'miniature tub' owners...if a bigger tub wasn't an option, would or wouldn't you rather the standard to just be a stand in shower, with that bulky tub removed for optimal space?
Edit 2: I don't get out much so imma reply to all 600 comments, so don't get all fussy when I respond a week from now on "a dead post". If thats "so cringe", then maybe you shouldn't talk to strangers...cuz they might just be a weirdo

Like seriously, those top shitposts, memes getting 5+awards are pissing me off. We are at war right now!! Fuck those Wall Street jackass who’s been calling us dimwits, we are about to teach them a lesson and make a name of ourselves. But you guys are here wasting money on stupid Reddit awards. I’ve been skipping my 20$ Wendy’s chicken dinner combo for three months now and buying GME every time it dips below 20$. All of you should be doing the same, everyone jack to the fucking tits!

Edit: ARE YOU GUYS FUCKING FOR REAL!!!???
Edit2: I guess we just inverse everything around here...

My wife had a crappy childhood. Her mom wasn’t great, in and out of prison. She had to raise her little siblings. So with our own kids, I know she overcompensates so our girls can have the childhood she didn’t.
The issue is, she can’t see that our daughters might not want the same things as she did as a kid. She put them in dance and one loves it, the other hates it but my wife made her do it until Covid hit and the studio closed. When I tried to talk her down, she said that she’d learn to love it.
Our oldest (6) has severe anxiety. She’s actually in therapy for it. As a result, she hates crowds. We had her birthday last January and she spent it huddled in a corner and cried through “happy birthday”, after begging my wife not to make people sing. My wife shrugged it off and said it’s “part of the experience”. This year we can’t do a big party for obvious reasons but my wife wanted to do a thing where everyone drove up to say hi, decorated their cars and sang. Oldest said no. When my wife tried to push, my daughter said she won’t leave her room if they come over.
My wife was upset and hurt. She told me she wants to give them the childhood she didn’t have. I said that’s nice but our girls do have a childhood. They’re not raising each other, neither of us are in prison and we’re stable. I said that she needs to let them have the childhood THEY want. That includes activities, toys (our youngest is a Tom boy and that’s lead to issues), what they wear, etc. She started arguing and I said she does all of this for herself, not them. I clarified she’s not her mom, but she’s not being a great one by doing this and told her she needs therapy to be the mom they deserve.
Now my wife isn’t talking to me. I wonder if I overstepped. AITA?
Hey, I’ll get straight to it. I(17f) am the oldest of 9(15m, 13m, 13f, 12m, 10f, 7m, 5f, 2m) My mother is a single mother who works hard to supply for us but relies mostly off child support(as my most of my siblings and I have different fathers). Though I’m only a half sister to most of my siblings, I still love them all very much and try my very best treat them as equal.
I got a job at 14 to help make extra cash and my days normally consist of getting up early to help get all the kiddos to school(or getting online for virtual school) and then going to my classes of the day(I’m a junior in high school) before going to work right when school ends and getting home a little before midnight. During the day while I’m in class, I’m still watching my 2 year old brother and making sure all the other kids are still in class/paying attention. My mom works at a small restaurant nearby from around 7am-3pm, but when she’s home mostly just sleeps because she’s tired from her long shifts.
Now for the actual AITA. Recently I’ve been looking at and getting ready to apply to colleges but haven’t told my mother. She went through my laptop the other day and found out what I was looking up financial aid and looking at some state schools a bit farther away(600-700 miles) and got really upset. She started crying saying she couldn’t afford to send me to school and that she couldn’t continue to care for my siblings without me. I felt really bad and apologized and we just sorta dropped it, but I didn’t plan on stopping searching. I mentioned the other day I was really interested in a nearby state school(one state over) that offered my major and was cheaper than in state tuition at my state school. I was super excited and told my mom. She completely blew up at me. She kept telling me how selfish I was to abandon our family and that if I left I’d be setting my family up to fail. She started yelling and crying and soon my siblings got upset and also started crying too. It was a mess that left me really conflicted.
On one hand, I don’t want to be selfish and prioritize my future over my siblings but on the other hand, I’m just exhausted. I’m so so tired on running on 4 hours of sleep and then just spending all day either working, babysitting, or doing school. I understand that’s how life is and that it’s just hard and I have to learn to deal but at the same time it all feels so frustrating. I see all these other kids my age going out and having fun and doing teen things and it mak... keep reading on reddit ➡
