Someone at work today said "You can't fool me. You're a not nice person, you're a person pretending to be nice." And at first I was offended but then I realized it was kinda true.

Oh, please. You are an extremely nice person. The person who said that to you, on the other hand, wants to drag everyone else down so no one will notice how vile they are.

First of all... they're wrong.
Secondly.... they're fucking stupid, b/c pretending to be nice requires doing nice shit and BEING FUCKING NICE.

So, like, fuck 'em.

Just sitting here waiting on a text telling me if my best friend since age 14 is moving 13 hours away or not.

It's what her and her husband want, but I'm selfish and needy. So i need to prepare myself to be very excited for her.

edit: husband moves may 1st, she will follow after selling the house

The last two weeks have been terrible; I recently changed worksites (I'm a temp), and the new worksite is awful. Terrible management, terrible work, and I'm not allowed to Turk like I was at the last site. I get home and just have no energy, so I haven't even Turked at home besides a few random hits here and there (mostly Audio Kites because at least I'm just listening to music and not really thinking). I was counting on Turking to help me pay bills and have a little extra spending money, but it looks like could be a thing of the past. Just bummed and out of breath...

I'm all alone, sitting on the floor surrounded by sticker books and markers, singing along to late '90s early '00s songs while eating chili cheese fritos.

This moment is perfect and deserves recognition.

Edit: not really sad pandas stuff, though. :x
Late reply but I think this kind of stuff is important. Even though we all struggle it's nice that there are moments where it's like "hey, right now, at this moment, things are alright."

POSSIBLE TRIGGER WARNING

Had a pretty serious talk with my therapist last night. As many of you know, I have OCD and pretty high anxiety. I have irrational fears about almost everything you can think of. We're working on a ladder, basically choosing the smallest fears and exposing myself to them then working my way upward.

Yesterday had certain topics but a few things really resonated with me at the end. I had seen another therapist last year but for reasons like financial and just my mindset at the time it just didn't work out. One thing my therapist from last year did talk about was mentioning watching a documentary watching The Bridge, a film about those who had jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge as a way of killing themselves. It featured interviews with people of the affected but also actual clips of those people jumping off to their deaths. Really harrowing stuff, and back in the summer I didn't feel like I could deal with it.

The constant fear I've had obsessed over for the past ten plus years has been suicide (plus many many others) or self-harm in general. So seeing this was really tough on me, but last night I thought that there was not gonna be a time where I was fully ready to watch it, so I decided to watch it. My extremities got cold, my chest felt heavier and my stomach felt like it was constantly contracting, but I watched it from start to finish. And I was so proud of myself, even if after the fact I was still very anxious. I'm still feeling it today pretty hard but I think this was a good necessary step for me to take.

Also, the specialist told me that I was a very likable guy, so that was nice to hear. It's hard to take compliments when you have always struggled with self-esteem but I hope I am getting to that point where I am getting a little easier on myself.

<3 i dunno if you have family or friends up there, but if you need something, I know it's a freaking odd offer from an internet friend, but i'm just a few hours away. I have zero idea what I could do, but idk, I feel like I need to offer something.

Hi. I'll try to put this as succinctly as possible. My dad died when I was 33 years old. I'm afraid that if that happens to your husband, there's nothing that you can do to shield him from that. It's something that he's going to have to go through on his own, but know that your support is going to be a huge help to him. I wish that I had something like that at the time. I had a 8 year old sister and a stepmother from the Philippines who had no one else but me. Hopefully I did ok by them, but I'm sure that you and your husband have the strength to handle whatever is coming.

Thanks, man. I'm sorry you went through that. This life stuff really sucks a lot sometimes.
