  1. That's pretty much the only thing in my case -- the possibility that something can change, even though it's been so long with nothing on the horizon. Maybe it will even happen while we are still alive and have some time left. Unfortunately, those limits definitely exist and every day brings them closer.
  2. It seems to me that most people are the same online and off. At least that's my personal experience, FWIW, which explains why I have the same number of friends online and in real life. My other personal experience is that it's not possible to force these things -- you just need to be on the same wavelength and click with someone, and then no effort is required. As cliche as it may sound, "be yourself" is probably the best I can come up with. (Not that it has worked for me, but I believe that's how it is, for better or worse.)
  3. Dota 2 I just wish I could enjoy it. I go through the motions and see no point in it.
  4. If the eyes are a window into the soul, some might not want others to peer into theirs -- and vice versa, since it goes both ways. However, I believe the window reveals only the thoughts and emotions someone is having at the moment, so I think it's possible to hide others by focusing on what you want to convey. If I do need to make eye contact, I try to think something happy or positive, like beautiful landscapes or people, something enjoyable, some good memories, etc.
  5. Being ugly (or stupid, etc.) is bad enough, but what's worse is that society somehow makes it the person's fault (even if implicitly) -- despite that he or she had absolutely no say in it and can't do anything about it. It starts very early, when the "ugly" or "stupid" kids are picked out for bullying by their peers and even some adults. It just gets worse from there and into adulthood, when it affects relationships (and lack thereof), friendships, employment, career progress, etc. It keeps piling on when depression and other ills are also triggered by it.
  6. That passage is a pretty accurate assessment, and this sums it up nicely. Especially with the current government, there's a sense that America doesn't take care of its people anymore (and that's the classic measure of a nation). Sure, it's great for a lucky few, but the social support system seems designed to keep people alive mainly to torture, not to enable them to have good lives. Aside from this, I don't think we've ever had a country so divided, and it gets worse by the day.
  7. Arrogant ants are an annoyance and antagonize anyone around.
  8. Money From Manny Loan Services "No broken bones if you pay by 6pm"
  9. . That's an interesting topic, as I'm in sort of a similar boat (except for being an extrovert). I had a different "best friend" in each of early childhood, grammar school, high school, college and grad school. That would be 5 best friends, each very close for years, in times good and bad, with our many deep and emotional talks -- and all gone for many years or decades now. It's somewhat strange how that happened. I can't explain it, other than the "petering out" of contact and the vibes you mentioned. I suspect depression puts off such vibes without awareness on our part. Maybe the associated loss of interest in everything translates into subconscious signals of not needing others?
  10. When leaving your driveway, don't turn one way while looking the other to make sure it's safe. It's not safe unless both sides are safe.
  11. Feeling like I don't belong in this world (or this timeline). When young(er), did you ever envision anything like the present reality of yourself and everything else?
