This was a hard lesson I recently came to terms with in life. I am fairly young (26) so don’t really have any hard feelings about it. I always felt I needed others to enjoy the same hobbies as me to actually enjoy doing them. This made me miss a lot of opportunities to just enjoy life.
If you want to do something (anything, be it physical, mental) just do it. By all means, extend an invite to others, but if nobody makes plans, just go do it yourself.
Instead of asking “hey, we should go out and do ______ some time”, say “hey, I’m going to go _________, did you want to come?”
This way you already have plans to do whatever it is you’re doing, and you’re just extending an invite. Not actually basing whether you will do thing on someone else.
Hope this helps someone!
Edit: A lot of comments are pointing this out. Obviously with Covid you need to be responsible about these “activities”. In my case, fishing alone outdoors really doesn’t have any covid complications.
After a long day some of us want to relax and unwind and play Valorant. However, there’s always two options. Competitive is for people who want take the game seriously.
The amount of times people treat comp like unrated like not grabbing spike, flaming team mates instead of doing useful comms, and buying ODIN or OP and dying first every round is annoying to people like me who always try their best.
I know no one on this sub is guilty, but it’s like people forget there’s a casual game mode for goofing around and a competitive one for trying to win. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
Edit: ODIN/OP is fine they are great weapons but try to stay alive with them and not rush down mid on defense like the guy who inspired me to write this
Remarkably, Trump was the first US president to shake hands with a North Korean leader. They had several meetings and engaged in discussions, but it didn't lead to official changes. Although N.K. believes the US will always be against them, they were unequivocally more open to international talks with President Trump compared to past presidents. How did Trump manage to get on North Korea's good side for a brief time? Why is there already a preconceived disdain for Biden?
The Dow is about 1,6% on the red side and the S&P about the same. I see too many people suddenly panicking and selling their stocks, especially in tech. And not just any tech stocks, the gold boys of the subreddit: Microsoft and Apple! We’ve talked a lot in this subreddit how these companies are great long term plays with good upside, yet I see a surprising amount of people starting to wonder if they should sell their tech stocks.
For those who are thinking of selling today, I want you to go back to that date when you bought the stock, whatever stock it was. Ask yourself: ”Why did I buy this stock?”
Then ask yourself: ”Has the situation changed?” Do you still see the same qualities that made you invest in the company?
If you see the same qualities that you saw at the start, continue what you are doing. There’s no reason to sell the stock, right? If anything, buy more!
Stick to your original strategy. I’d just keep doing that DCA and buy the dips. Today is a great day to do that. Don’t worry.
Edit: Thanks for the upvotes and awards!
Hi! New here. I started dieting a year ago, at 145 pounds (5 3 female here) because I didn't want to continue the trend of gaining a little bit of weight every year, I realized I would eventually become overweight that way. Now I am at 132, fairly close to my ideal weight of 124. I took it really slow, trying to rewire my brain to make good choices in order for the weight loss to stick in the years to come. Now, I have plateaued at this weight for about a month, and I know why: I get cravings at the end of the day and end up going 200/300 calories over. I can't seem to stop without a massive amount of willpower, which is super odd, since I don't struggle so much during the day. Anyone else? Any tips?
So me (23m) and my girlfriend (26f) are having an issue with my friend (25f). Jane my girlfriend, does not like the fact that i go and hangout with my friend Cassie by myself. I told Jane, that I don’t have any feelings for Cassie and that I have never had a sexual history with her as well.
Cassie and I were friends before Jane and I started dating. Currently it’s been a 5 1/2 month relationship with Jane and I’m really in love with her.
The issue got brought up, because one weekend, Jane was busy and wanted to be alone. She wasn’t answering my calls and was acting cold through text messages. So I just planned my weekend and hung out with friends. One day, being a breakfast outing with Cassie.
When Jane and I finally talked and I told her about my weekend. She was like “how do you think that’s ok?” and I was kinda baffled. She also said “you realize she likes you and don’t play dumb”. At the end of all of that she said “she would not stick around for that”. Too me, that insisted she didn’t trust me and that I would date Cassie, in the end. I don’t feel anything for my friend other than a friendship.
Extra facts about Cassie:
Mostly hangout with her in groups and only have hung out with her 3 times total by myself.
The weekend Jane was being cold. I told Cassie she wasn’t really talking to me. Cassie just said that I was probably overthinking it, which I thought was friendly advice.
Sometimes we text and FaceTime.
Please let me know if I’m starting something bad here? I love Jane, but I’m not sure if maybe being Cassie’s friend is a good idea or not? Maybe, hanging out one on one is a bad idea?
If you need more information, ask.
TL;DR Girlfriend wants me to stop hanging out with me female friend, because she believes Cassie likes me. Am I starting something bad?
Thanks in advance!
