So my boyfriend was abused as a child and he has a big fear of putting his face near sinks because his mom used to semi drown him as punishment by putting his head under the kitchen sink. I’m a big believer of washing your face twice a day and while he does wash it in the shower, that means he only washes his face once per day and he breaks out often because of it. I told him today that he has to start washing his face in the sink and that he can just splash water on it to make it easier. He rejected and said he wouldn’t do it at all. I told him that I wouldn’t be going to get groceries with him if he didn’t because I think his fear needs to be dealt with once and for all because Im sure we’re both tired of it. He got really upset and told me to leave for a bit and so I did. He was really rude about it and it hurt. I told my sister and she said I’m the asshole in this but I genuinely did it out of love and want for him to get over his fears. Aita?
Like dude, just share your content and GTFO. No need to narrate.
As an abuse survivor who lived at the mercy of a narcissist for 20 years, I still struggle a lot with coming to terms with my abuse. I have moments where I see things in perspective, and I am able to accept that the pain I endured for so many years was NOT normal, and that I deserved so much better than what I was getting. And then I also have my low moments, where I revert back to the belief that everything that happened to me was my fault. That I was wrong. That I was flawed. That I never made an effort. That the people who raised me did their absolute best and I just wasn't cooperative enough.
My wondeful therapist knows I use Reddit, and so last week she gave me a challenging assignment: what if you slipped into you mother's shoes 20 years back, and took to the internet to ask if strangers thought your parenting methods were normal?
It's not a very honest thing to do. I know there's a lot of well-meaning, kind strangers on Reddit's AITA community who take their time to help oth... keep reading on reddit ➡

And then I read a comic by the wonderful French illustrator Emma about sharing mental load: https://english.emmaclit.com/2017/05/20/you-shouldve-asked/
And now I'm crying even harder. Why do I have to be this man's mother? Why is it so easy and inconsequential for men to be permanent children? What do I have to say to make him understand? Because everything I have said thus far has only reinforced his notion that I am controlling and maybe a little OCD. I have cried and pleaded and explained and yelled and empathized and stormed out and bargained and made lists and none of it matters. My short-lived attempt at a cleaning and cooking strike was the most pathetic of all; he didn't even notice.
I don't want to sound cliche. I know there are women who are like this too. But for the love of god I have met so many men in my life, between my partners and the partners of my... keep reading on reddit ➡

English is not my first language so apology for the mistakes. This just happened about an hour ago.
I was playing some video games on my pc when my sisters said they were hungry so i whipped up some meat from the fridge which is already prepared for deep frying. I prepared the pan for frying and put just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. I started frying but i feel like it's gonna take long because i dont see the side of the meat browning at all.
So being the idiot i am, i pour more oil just to about half way to the meat. I cooked the meat prepared some rice for my sisters then i started to wash the dish. Just to clarify im not really a smart child so im dont really know what to do and what not to do.
I took the pan, oil still hot, i pour it down the drain. I turned on the tap and started washing the pan when and i immediately jumped from a burnt from my foot. I looked down and saw that the oil had burnt through the drain pipe thing. And because i was starting to wash th... keep reading on reddit ➡
I personally feel absolutely disgusted when this happens and I feel the urge to wash the part that touched it multiple times until the thought goes away.
This obviously makes taking showers and brushing teeth difficult because sometimes when it happens I feel so nauseous to the point of dry gagging lmao.
Edit: Yes I do clean my bathroom and it could literally be bleached and all that shit but I'll still be disgusted. I also use the bathroom with bathroom sandals on and YES we have a toilet seat cover thing💀
So, there've been a few threads relating to the WC final and after seeing some of the comments, I decided to reply to some of those but I think this would do better as a post. Here goes-
The sheer aggression towards England is unbelievable. There are still so many people who say that we did not win the World Cup, and they don't even stop at that and proceed to insist that New Zealand are the true winners.
Boundary countback has been ridiculed due to its concept and also the fact that it is an advantage for the chasing team, since they'll be looking for boundaries. Alright, I understand.
But literally I've seen some of the same people say that wickets taken should have been used as the deciding factor. Isn't that an advantage to the team batting first since the chasing team would be taking more risks?
The real reason why people are talking about wickets taken is the fact that it is the only criteria by which NZ could have been named the winners. England were higher up on the group t... keep reading on reddit ➡
Whether said by the right or left. Stop it. It doesn’t make me think harder about anything and you didn’t make some brilliant point that no one else has ever thought of.

They do add chlorine to sanitize the water. Not the tastiest, but I'd buy soap or food or something first. Also, why tf are people wiping out toilet paper? I had to make sure to buy extra because people are clearing the store out, so I don't run out. I don't know what the purpose of stockpiling either of these things are, but it's annoying. It reminds me of the "gas scare" here in San Antonio right after that hurricane hit Houston. I wasn't worried, but when everyone else got worried, I was forced to find gas just because everyone was freaked out, no stations had gas, and I was running on almost empty thinking everyone was dumb. Drove a few miles out of the city, surprise! No gas shortage. I went to pick up a friend from the Houston airport a few days later. All the stations I saw there had gas, no one was freaked out.
I mainly enjoy competitive multiplayer games, but I also like a decent single player game that is more relaxing and I can play for ages without getting stressed.
I'm new to PC (also have a PS4) and Can't really find one I want to try, as I already played a lot of the big titles on PS4, here are some that I really enjoyed!
Witcher 3 (other single player, rpg, fantasy game recommendations welcome)
Fallout New Vegas (tempted to get again as it is cheap and I can mod on PC)
Red dead 2 (played the first one and GTA also)
I really like open world, RPG style games, but any are welcome! Also, PC exclusives would be good recommendations!
EDIT: Wow I got a lot more responses than expect, thanks all! I think I have plenty to choose from now
The subreddit subscribers has nearly double in size in a day or two, so many have missed these details and I would live to give a refresher on what we know.
Let's take a look at the actual PS5 dev-kit :
Closeup on the face:
We knew the actual PS5 would likely look nothing like the dev-kit, and that turned out to be quite true! But it cannot be denied that the PS5-dev-kit certainly has an unorthodox design! So what's going on with it?
It's not hard to imagine that by the time the dev-kit was built that they knew how they were going to cool the actual PS5. But this posed some challenges for the dev-kit cooling solution.
The actual PS5 uses a novel form of through-board cooling that we discovered in the Sony patent, the dev-kit does not use this technique. They knew the... keep reading on reddit ➡
