  1. I am sorry to hear this. What an awful way to lose a friend. I know the feeling- losing a close friendship is hard. It's like losing a piece of yourself or losing that source of happiness. This is not an easy situation and my heart goes out to you during this difficult time. I am sorry for your loss. She sounded wonderful- and hearing the situation with her SO irritates me to no point. I hope you achieve a friendship like that again. Sometimes, that's what we need. Keep yourself out there-- there's always more friendships to come around, so long as you look in the right place. Keep us posted. We're all here to support you. Feel free to drop a message to either me or any other forum members you're close to. I wish you the best
  2. Oh I agree-- that's one good way to put it. It's a tough thing to get out of, but we can definitely conquer it :)
  3. Thank you so much for that thorough explanation. It really does help me understand the overall image of this. And I greatly appreciate that :) And how kind of you to offer-- I'll certainly remember that. Thanks again, Sober. This thread has helped me more than you could imagine!
  4. Yes, what you said is true. I have never been able to fully put the situation into words myself, and it helps reading what you described it to be. @Epictetus @evalynn @sober4life I really appreciate the advice you all gave. I feel so much better just by reaching out to you all and reading your replies. I'm on a full day one right now so far. I'm eager to conquer it!
  5. I am so sorry to hear about what you have been going through. It sounds like a tough situation, and I know it's hard on you. Keep reaching out. Find positive outlets. Journaling might help you clear your mind as well. Get your thoughts down somewhere. It might help. As for your therapist, do you think he'll be more aware of things if you just admit to him that he's not helping? Perhaps he can switch to different solutions or techniques. That's what he's there for- just be honest. Please, hang in there. We're always here to help and listen. I wish you the best
  6. That makes a lot of sense. I appreciate the quick reply, Sober-- I'll plot some things down and think it through. Thank you so much :D
  7. It's been miserably hot these past few weeks. Just standing in the shade gets uncomfortable-- and we've been getting a crap ton of tornado warnings lately
  8. I wanted to ask for your guys' advice. Sometimes I struggle getting rid of bad habits or activities I do personally-- but I honestly want some help. What my bad habits are specifically, I will not share. Mainly because I can't bring myself to share them. But what has helped you guys overcome bad addictions or habits? What would you recommend to a friend who's in the same situation you used to be in? I'm kind of in a hole. And I'm trying to dig my way out. Wishing you all the best
  9. I really do love this. It makes sense too that happiness can take time and work. Hence why it'd all be paid off. Assistance can really make a difference in this. Thank you for sharing
  10. Yeah, I'm with you. The path is so common that it's visible it usually brings more problems than living single, yknow? No arguments or stressing, or having to deal with someone else's bs. So if you're old and still single, be proud of it actually-- is my advice. I mean, unless you do want a partner. I can relate to the whole relationship thing too. Even if I did care and actually did believe in love, I would really not be good dating material. I'm too distant and closed off for a partner. My trust issues are also pretty bad, so that would be in the mix If being single makes you happy, then stick with it. Don't let other folks tell you otherwise-- Im always open to chat about this subject if you need it. Though I hope things have been going well for you.
  11. Better. Can't help but notice my improvement since October last year. Sure, I'll have bad days here and there, but I'm feeling good actually! Looking into some more careers with cats for the future
  12. It was cloudy for a bit, then it was hot as heck. Then it was windy and now it's just cloudy. Got a whole mix up today XD
  13. Thank you for sharing this. Interesting yet sad. Kind of wish they were much more open with these advertisements in public.
  14. I honestly greatly relate to you. Just like you, I've never held attraction towards the opposite sex. Never wanted sex or to be in a relationship either- people are so open about it nowadays it makes me cringe. Hence why I'll pretty much always be happily single. Not sure how I feel towards females, I will say that. But just know you're not alone in this, okay? I have complications with my own sexuality (aro/ace). I, too, know it's a messy situation. You're not doing anything wrong. Just stick with whatever makes you happy.
  15. Being forgotten or thrown away.
  16. Annoyed. Having to deal with the mentally ill neighbor. Always trying to nag at us for something. Hell, she even hit our car on purpose. Parked all close to the bumper and everything- left paint chips too. Can't believe that shit.
  17. Please don't ignore or lie to me. I'd rather you tell me you don't want to chat rather than you completely blow me off
  18. I ordered some graduation gifts that should arrive later this week. I can't wait to give them to the recipients
  19. Either another bird or a hamster :D
  20. It's alright, buddy. We're planning on gifting her with another pet. We're doing a bit better on our end
