It’s cool to have a girlfriend,a boyfriend or a best friend,anyone you feel close to,but no matter how much you love them,no matter how much they love you,how much of a good person they are, they are still people that you want in your life and not people that you need in your life.I know this sounds harsh and i know,it’s hard to say even for me, but i’m not talking in an emotional way but simply talking from my experience.
Trust me,once that person isn’t available for you anymore,once that person stops talking to you,texting you,calling you like they used to.Once that person starts becoming distant and you can feel that you ain’t as close as you were before with these person and realize that you’re not as close as you thought you were with this person.That this person doesn’t feel the same way you feel for her.Once that person isn’t here for you anymore.
Your life will feel empty and sad.

He does this every single time and he loses every single time. He personally fought Kor Phaeron at Calth and would have died if Kor Phaeron wasn't also a master of idiot strategies. He personally fought Lorgar on Nuceria and did okay until Angron showed up and kicked his ass. Not having learned anything from this he went on to personally duel Fulgrim on his flagship and managed to die.
Apparently dying wasnt enough to make him realise this was an idiot strategy as he then went on to personally fight Magnus, who completely out matched him until the sisters of silence had to help him. Being the genius strategist that he is, he still didn't fucking learn to stay back and decided that he would personally kill Mortarion. Of course when he finally found Mortarion the guy just paralysed him and the Emperor had to show up and save him.

I (37, F) have a group of women friends who go for happy hour every Friday at 5.30pm. I have known one of them (45, F) since 2010. Let’s pretend her name is Anne. She complains about everything every week and our group has gotten used to her and we rotate turns dealing with her complaints. That way, we just have to be FULLY present for her once every 5 weeks instead of being sucked in weekly. When I say she complains about everything, I mean everything. Like her husband didn't wash her jeans just right, the dog threw up, her professor (she's doing her MA in English) was prejudiced and gave accommodations to a student with a documented disability but didn't give her one even though she felt "crummy" that week (she’s not registered to receive accommodation because her doctor said she has no disability!), etc.
One of her fav topics to throw at us is that unlike the rest of us single women, she has a 4yo, and so she has more reason to be tired and sleep-deprived than us. It’s a miser... keep reading on reddit ➡
My mom (48f, psycho whore) decided she wanted to support her entire family at "special" event: a wedding 🤮. Instead of dropping that and supporting me (22m, gay, mathematician, angel, genius) at quite literally the most important day in American history: my graduation 🧐🤔😤💯👩🎓💪💪!!!
My questions to you internet:
Should I call the police? This kind of child of abuse should not stand.
Should I have my mom psychologically evaluated and take control of her estate? If she doesn't give me all the attention I want, she cannot be trusted to own things or make her own decisions.
Should I kill my mom? At this point she is an clinically insane child abuser, wouldn't it be an act of mercy to put her out of her misery?
Thank you for validation in advance everyone 😇😇😇
EDIT: apparently the exact same thing happened to someone else. Well the the good news is we will stand together!!!

TL;DR at bottom
So this happened while I was still a bartender. I worked in a city centre sports bar. Where we had a relatively large food menu for the type of place it was. Nothing crazy just the usual things like burgers, chicken wings but a bigger variety. Being a bartender I never dealt with the food other than maybe clearing a table here and there when it was quiet or I was bored.
This isn't the craziest story ever, just one that bugged me.
I worked here 6 months and maybe saw 10 kids in the place in all that time. Kids were allowed, it just wasn't exactly a place to take them. This story takes place in my final week so i was already zoned out of the job.
One day around 1pm a family of 4 comes in, before even taking a seat to look at a menu, ED is already at the bar asking to order food. Nothing crazy, I tell him it's table service, and a waiter will be over soon. I call a waiter on the radio and they replied that they will be down after they've finished with another table.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Trigger Warning: Pet loss.
This is going to be all over the place. Dear Husband and I lost one of our very beloved cats unexpectedly on Tuesday morning. It's being rough, very rough, and we are both devastated.
Well, when The Widow heard about it, she just said "That's why I don't have any pets. You end up loving them and then they die and you suffer. I suffer enough already." With no acknowledgement of our pain whatsoever, no sorry, no nothing. Bitch, why don't you just shut the hell up?
Now the cherry on top: DH's aunt calls me (note, calls me, not her nephew) to offer her condolences in a very WTF way, saying "I'm sorry. Though better the cat than you." What the hell is that? It's like someone's mother dies and I go "Well, better your mother than your son!"
I can't understand why the hell people say that kind of crap. If you don't understand, say nothing or text a little "Sorry, hugs" and leave it alone.
Besides this, DH's family calls me a lot instead of calling him, for th... keep reading on reddit ➡
I get so incredibly frustrated every time I see people who recently had children say “I now know who my real friends are after I had a baby”.
The truth is, dramatic life changes (like having a baby) will lose friends, but are also opportunities to gain new ones as well. Child free people do not have to continue their friendship with you just because you popped out a crotch goblin. These parents also now expect their child free friends to bend over backwards for their schedule & for their child(ren). Having children is a lifestyle that people CHOOSE. Just because you chose to have children doesn’t override your child free friends choice to not have/deal with children.
So no, it’s not selfish for a child free person to respectfully discontinue a friendship when their friend has a child.
I was watching the democratic debates and it’s always about black and white racism. All these older politicians that are in power think the race issue is only between black and whites where other people of color don’t exist when talking about racism. I feel like their still in the 60s.
I mean less like "I've written 4 different coffee shop AUs" and more of an "incessant singular trope for multiple different character situations" type thing. Mine is that I seem to always find a way to plug tropes like Power Incontinence and Super-Power Meltdown into stories I'm creating. Probably banks on the fact that X-Men's Phoenix is one of my favorite characters and storylines of all time, so I end up nudging that into other fandoms. Did Merlin from "Merlin" losing control over his magic a few years ago, recently I had ideas for Keith from "Voltron: Legendary Defenders" and Ahsoka from The Clone Wars animated series. Characters who accidentally lose control of their powers/are possessed by their powers and become ridiculously unstoppable and have to be rescued by their loved ones are just my jam, I guess, because I end up spiralling down the same storylines every time! Anyone else find they experience something similar when they write?
I'm currently learning AE with a focus to expand into a motion graphics artist and I'd ask all industry professionals among you for some insight. Could you share a few pointers for a newbie like myself to take into consideration in order to make it.
This is a question that I’ve been wondering about a lot recently: is it possible to make a character that is chaotic evil and not have that character become a murderhobo and/or really not fit in within the group?
Based on my experiences with chaotic evil characters thus far, I’ve found that the only ones who actually do work well in a dnd party are those who either aren’t actually chaotic or aren’t actually evil. Otherwise, they just seem to end up doing stuff that either makes the party really uncomfortable or just straight up divides the party. Also, on a broader scale, most if not all of the stories I’ve heard of CE characters in other campaigns have been from r/rpghorrorstories, or from stories that belong on there.
Therefore, I want to know if it really has to be this way? Is it possible to make a functional chaotic evil character that will cooperate within a party and be more than a murderhobo, while still being chaotic and evil? If so, how? Because honestly, I’m considering j... keep reading on reddit ➡
As the title says, I've never read anything along these lines and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions??
Looking for niche/indie/relatively unknown movies that are about solving clues. Especially ones that go into detail on its subject. Da Vinci Code and National Treasure would be blockbuster examples. Not only adventure though, and the Goonies and the Librarian would fit the bill but are a bit on the silly side for my taste.
Do you know any?

She said cya l8er boy.

Yes. The title was an actual quote reply to a someone who legitimately said that AEW wasn’t really ‘sports’ based.

Woah. I went too deep.
Almost cried otw home from work because of how fast today went by, how positive everyone around was, everything was so in sync today it felt like I was a controller of a dream.
And somehow it feels extremely familiar, like being “home”. Absolutely beautiful.

This was posted in r/philosophy and I wanted to ask this subreddit for their opinions on it. I do not believe in anything supernatural, including the idea of a soul that can exist outside of a living brain. That being said I never use the word soul, instead I use consciousness. If you could give this article a read the author argues that values and morals can only exist through a theistic world view regardless of personal views of religion, meaning being selfish about the soul itself. How could we rebut this assertion?
Like, can anyone give me a single subplot that wasn’t connected to him being gay in one way or another? It’s actually ridiculous at this point, even for Riverdale.
Today I was talking with my dad and a few uncles about the Iranian general being killed by the US and the uncles came to a consensus that America did this to take attention away from Kashmir. I was sitting there trying not to bang my head into a wall because these were all educated and successful people yet they were being so delusional like in reality even after all of Iran’s sanction and the fact their population is 1/3 of ours their economy is nearly 1.75X of ours. In the grand scheme of things Pakistan is largely an unimportant country if you take away our conflict with India and our involvement in the Afghan war we’d basically be treated like Nigeria even though when it comes to Africa Nigeria is the big daddy.
This isn’t even the first time I’ve regularly heard uncles talk about how America is always trying to sazish Pakistan. It blows my mind how people think America or any country is even threatened by Pakistan we are a politically unstable country that goes to the IMF on aver... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was astounded how good I slept once I distanced myself enough from drinking (not just drinking in the evenings, but ensuring I had NO alcohol at all in my system). But that was just the first improvement. I realized I'm making a number of lifestyle and habitual changes, and that my motivation revolved around how my decisions were cascading into disrupting my sleep.
Caffeine? I'm down to no more than 3 caffeinated drinks a day. And nothing past 2pm! Otherwise, I won't feel sleepy in time OR will just not slip into dreamland as easily (toss and turn).
Sugar? Only very little, maybe two small cookies a day, otherwise, same thing.
Junk food? Anything that gives me indigestion or off balance, I'm phasing out. I hate trying to sleep when I feel a tumultuous tummy. Eating more and more "whole foods" diet.
Screen time? I need to stop at least 30 minutes before bed AND use a blue light filter.

So I’m throwing a party for my husband who is leaving his long time job because we are moving across the country. It’s the tradition at his work that they go to the same place every time somebody leaves.
I pick a day after consulting everyone attending and make a reservation for a special private room at a brewery. It cost me 150 but I don’t mind we wanted to do one last big hangout with all his friends/co workers.
This one couple is now demanding I change the reservation and time because their 5 year old has soccer practice in another town they forgot about. I ask if they can skip it or get a sitter and they are throwing a massive fit because they want to come out and party but refuse to miss the practice. They can’t bring the kid because it’s 21 plus at night in the bar.
Now they both are pissed and trying to sabotage the entire event that was supposed to be a fun goodbye for my husband.
I don't recommend this heartache. But, OMAD has begun 11 days ago. I eat a sensible dinner, whatever I might feel like. I drink water or unsweet iced tea all day.
Not emotion-wise, but energy wise I feel good. Stomach, face, my tight pants are no longer tight. This is a silver lining, and this is a way of life I can find super easy to follow forever.
Snacking on sugar, breakfasts with tortillas, etc is such strong fuel for making one binge eat. We are humans that aren't designed to live alongside such a barrage of food all day! We are roamers, gatherers, we are meant to eat wholesome foods and not all day long!

Hi, I'm just seeking some guidance from you guys. This is my first time posting so I'll just do what other people do, yknow?
Anyways, for some background my mom has been claiming to have hackers in her phone. It's been going on for about 2-3 years and she's been telling me to never go into pms with anybody or even my friends. Just recently she got onto my computer and scrolled through my discord messages with my best friend. She invaded my privacy, and I have just bottled this up since about last week when me and her were having a movie night. I accidentally missclicked on a movie and she said "See? We watch what they want us to watch." I chuckled at the comment but it just made me feel like she was lying for attention (even though- well, I hope- that she doesn't need to do that) or just making it up inside her head. She has ptsd and social anxiety. It's been making me doubt her more and more and I just want to call her out on it. So, Reddit,

On the Daily Zeitgeist today Robert was talking about trying to find a diesel-hybrid vehicle for his "bug-out kit" and I really wanted him to just keep talking about things like that. Maybe just an episode of one of his podcasts occasionally, or a video series?
preferably fics for the Atelier series, Touhou, or Sailor Moon but any fandom/series is fine.
I've been reading posts here recalling childhood trauma and symptoms and diagnosis from medical professionals revolving around ADHD, depression, etc. Posts about children in religious families sexualizing them and then placing the burden of that bad behavior on the target of the attention... And I know this isn't a new thought but it is extremely easy to forget just how much of our social fabric is woven in place to deny bad behavior exists
Doctors say you are depressed and have no curiosity as to why or how that happened, as an example.

I hate the advice that gets given out around the internet when it comes to guys who struggle to get dates. As soon as a guy makes a post about not being able to get a girlfriend, the (kind of insulting) assumption is that if he’s above a certain age and hasn’t had a relationship or slept with someone? He must be a socially incompetent, fedora wearing neckbeard who hates women, washes once a month and exclusively wears clothes 3 sizes too large for him. The advice is usually ‘dress better, take care of your hygiene, get a better haircut, hit the gym, fix your views about women, go out more’, etc.
In my personal experience, this doesn’t solve a lot of issues. Maybe I’m alone, but I’m willing to bet I’m not. Maybe at one point in high school I was an ugly duckling who dressed bad and had a bad haircut, but I’ve always had good hygiene, got along well with women, etc. In like the 5 years since I finished school I’ve really pulled myself together, hit the gym, dressed way better to the poi... keep reading on reddit ➡
It makes me feel all warm and snuggly inside imagining him. I really wanna hug and kiss him, all the typical romantic stuff. Please don't tell me "Have you tried talking to him in real life?" because he is a 50 year old celebrity and I am in love with the younger version of him, so I doubt that would work out very well..
I hate not imagining him. It's like being away from your partner for a long period of time. It's ruined my life and caused me to hate myself, who I am, etc.

I dont want kids. I never have and I dont think I will in the near future. Doesnt mean I hate them, I think theyre cute and funny at times but I rather not have 2 hours of screaming over a stupid candy, having to disrupt my sleep schedule, having to put my life on hold for their shit, etc. Especially with babies, they just give me so much anxiety when theyre fussy and crying. Its just not something I want to do at all.
I told my dad around 12yrs that I didnt want kids. He was angry. Not because im not shooting out pregnancies, but because his genes are gonna end at me. Who. The. Fuck. Cares.
You have litterally 3 other offspring that you can depend on for genes. Its not gonna stop at me and youre not gonna die because I aint popping out kids. I dont want any. Im too young for them.

At the very least, you'd assume everyone is simply playing to win. But from the pre-game, it seems to me that she's most focused at eliminating as many women as possible so she's the only female 2x winner.
Now, she hasn't necessarily said that she will choose eliminating women over the benefit/harm of her personal game if push comes to shove where eliminating a women at a certain point is a bad strategic move, but it seems if her strategy is effective, it could taint the feeling of the season.

Is this what a narcissist more often, says or hears?
My ex of 4 months constantly told me those words and I’m still really confused..
It’s usually when he had disappeared for a whole day after saying he’d get back to me and I’d complain that he could have left me a text to update me because I felt like I had been waiting around all day.. He would then get really angry then he’d begrudgingly do favour that I didn’t ask for, complain about it a lot, then I’d feel obliged to show appreciation for something I didn’t ask for, that actually felt hurtful..
And I felt even more awful because I always said “thankyou”.
I’ve also heard these words from countless people around me.. 🙁

A couple of years ago we saw a lot of Sketch vs Figma discussions and since then it would seem that there has been a significant shift towards Figma. Now Adobe XD appears to have improved considerably and it would seem that between it and Figma they are the tools that have people excited and talking. Is Sketch set to decline in popularity and usage as Figma and XD take over?
Yes reddit is american, the biggest % of users are american, yet you shouldnt assume any discussion is always about american ways / stardards / laws.
For instance most other countries allow alcohol at 16 years of age or 18.
Yes i wrote : "you" instead of "people" , because reddit is still mostly americans and im fine with that and accepting the fact that most things will be about american stuff. Just saying, people gotta also see the possibility of other nationalities makoing or joining discussions.
Every world religion has many amazing and beautiful ways of expressing their love for God and for their fellow man. People who chose to only act on the negative aspects of discrimination, judgement, and harassment aren't following the tenants of their god, but using it as a smokescreen to excuse their shitty personalities.
