As if we're going anywhere for Halloween... No way I'm going to any bars or parties with coronavirus on the loose. I will work on my project though. I need some structure in my life and am going to draw up a calendar to assign myself tasks and also I want that sweet sense of accomplishment

>> No.10448124

On one side I'm fortunate that my company will not be pursuing layoffs atleast through the end of the year. I'm also working from home which is good too, and I've been paying off debt steadily.

On the other side, I've been living on autopilot for like 4-5 months now and I've lost interest in virtually everything I used to enjoy. I'm not interested in cosplay much anymore and I have no motivation to wear my lolita clothing. I have to force myself to stream on the pretext that a friend will get me talking otherwise I'd have little to no human interaction.

I've put on a few pounds from depression eating (I'm around 128 and 5'5 and I'd like to trim down to 120ish) so I finally decided to start exercising. I ordered some resistance bands to start out, I already have a jump rope and dumbbells. I'm hoping that's enough to get me out of this rut. Wish me luck!

Both my husband and I are in the high risk category. I immunocompromised and he asthmatic. It has really forced me to acknowledge my own mortality and to maybe make an effort to think about things.

My problem with the whole situation is the attitude that everyone is stuck in. It's a very "today is the only day" mindset. We're conditioned to only care about our jobs and "productivity." No one is looking at the big picture. No one is considering their future and the fact that being dead (or permanently disabled) means no future, or significantly less of a future.

I'm fortunate, and if I'm forced to go back to work while it's still unsafe, I can quit because my income is not necessary. But I strongly believe that others shouldn't put themselves in danger just to fulfil their job role. It's insane to me.

Stay alive at all costs, even if it means being poor for awhile. We underestimate how fragile life itself is, and there's no do-overs.

Set up your wills and pick out your urn online. Figure out if you want a DNR. I'm dealing with estate affairs after a recent passing and it is absolute hell. The kindest thing you can do is get it set up now so your loved ones don't stress about it later. Nobody knows what you want except for you. You'll probably be fine too if you're washing your hands and wearing a mask. You'll be very prepared.

STOP. Now, with that information in mind, you, as the seamstress/cosplay maker, when you see a full body reference photo and the wording of "I would like this please!" does your stupid brain go "anon must mean only the body suit" or does your smart brain go "anon must want ALL of it since they said 'this', not 'I would only like the body suit"?

Our comm has made them boring. We aren’t all allowed to talk at once anymore. We have to be on mute like we’re in a boardroom meeting. At the beginning me and a few other girls would get a little drunk, so we talked to the other girls who couldn’t even muster up the courage to say anything besides hi. We would play games with everyone, have a little fashion shows in our rooms and also have a side chat. Then I guess someone complained that we were being rude to the others, so the “mods” of the room now mute everyone unless it’s their turn. Which is boring cause only like two people end up talking while the others just sit there. So robotic now. “So how are you guys?” Mute. Unmute. “I’m good!” Mute. Unmute. “Me too. Having a good day so far.” Mute. Unmute. “Same. Good good.” Mute. Unmute. Oh? It’s difficult to host a room with 40 girls and not have them all talk over each other? Then have breakout rooms of seven people instead.

I really, truly just want to kill myself. I think about it every single day multiple times and have vivid fantasies about dying, all of which are “happy” because in them I get relief from this life. I especially think about the final moments, and how it’ll just be a sigh of relief. Things are getting harder and harder and it’s getting to be impossible to keep going just based on buying new things to add to my wardrobe. I can’t now because I’m helping my family out due to complications with the virus, but once that’s over I’m pretty sure I’m going to do it.

I don’t have a future after that. There’s nothing I can think of in life that would give me happiness or satisfaction, my only hope for the future that had kept me going all these years was dashed coming up on three years now. Now there’s no future to look forward to. I know that people will try to tell me “you can make your own future now”, but there’s nothing that I want. Nothing I can look to as a beacon of light that “this might happen some day.”

People in my life say things to me like how strong I am for doing what I’m doing to help my family, how so few people could do it, and I don’t know what to say because I can’t just come out with “I’m killing myself after” so I just awkwardly thank them. Even more hilariously ironic, people who know an even shallower image of me than that act like I’m something to aspire to be, because again I can’t just come out and say how much pain I’m in or that I’m going to shoot myself after this is over.

The only other thing that makes me slightly sad about dying is there’s going to be a mountain of brand that probably just gets tossed out. I doubt my family will sell it after I die and I can’t in the time leading up to it because I wouldn’t be able to help my family if I went to the post office thanks to the virus since my work situation has regulations put in place to prevent covid from spreading.

Not good at talking with people, but I'll try

I've been suicidal before. First it was the thought of how sad my mother would be if I died that kept me alive. I could never do that to her. At one point, through research, I found something else: I was (/am, not suicidal anymore but still MDD) ill. I don't know if it's depressions or something else/more than that with you, but it's an illness. It's not you. It feels like it would be the best thing for you to die or just don't exist anymore, but that's not you talking. That's an illness, and that are probably just hormones not doing their job.

Not directly related, but hear me out: I used to be on birth control non-stop for ~1 year to treat insufferable pain, and it changed me as a person. I had to stop taking it or else I would have gone mad. I was a completely different person while taking these pills, because they fucked up my hormones. I couldn't recognise myself.

Your illness does the same thing to you. You're not a pure soul and personality, you are also flesh, blood, and chemicals, and yours are fucked up right now.

So do what you do when you're ill - see a doctor. If you find a shit one at first, find a different, better one. You're fucking worth it.

>> No.10449118

i was going to say the same thing. when i go on/off the placebo week of birth control it gives me depression, especially if I'm already feeling down about something then it really spirals. I make myself wait until that week is over. But your body may be more messed up, so that depression may not be ending. If you were not under that influence, you would see that other peoples' reasons for living aren't such hot shit and yours are just as valid and inspiring. So seek out a way to repair your state.

Seems like he's afraid of getting accused of racism more likely because people claim calling the cops on a nonwhite person may be a death sentence. This really highly depends on your neighborhood, the reason, and the race of the person (cops are gonna shoot a black guy before an Asian one or something let's be real).

I can see why he'd be worried if that's the issue. People sometimes get really angry over those things but neighbors need to be more polite. I wonder if there is a non police public service he could complain to to stop them.

Nayrt but your argument is that women on birth control are sluts, anon is clarifying that that is not always the case.

And everyone has hormones and many women have irregular periods, so it's not defectiveness, just a common annoyance that birth control can help. You have no idea what age she lost her virginity or began birth control so your comment implying her weight is why she was a virgin is irrelevant, AND statistically more attractive women have less sex and women who lose their virginity later in life have higher self value on average so she is more likely to be attractive and have self esteem having less sex anyway.

None of what you're saying makes much sense desu. If you want to insult people at least make it entertaining and not just sound like a bitter confused incel.

It probably is in relation to societal judgement in stuff. I didn't mean to imply that their virginity gave them value. They probably have less self esteem issues because of a slut-shamey culture.

Although there are tons of young girls who are taken advantage of by statutory rapist older boyfriends at a young age and I can imagine them having self image issues. Not because of losing their virginity but because of the mental damage an unhealthy relationship with an adult like that would cause someone.

I had a male friend for like 3 or 4 years who I wasn't super close to but once we spent more time around each other I realized I liked him and asked him out. We went on a super cute date, he still decided we should just be friends and I was fine with it. Then later he decided he wanted to date again and we've been super happy together since.

I know I'm a girl asking a guy but still, most people are able to be attracted to anyone not horribly ugly or deformed as long as they like each other as people. Most people are less ugly than they think and it really comes down to social interactions, compatibility, personality, etc. for someone to be able to tell how they feel about you. Becoming closer as friends can help people realize they may make good partners.

Conversely, don't be friends with a girl purely in the hopes that she will later say yes when you ask her out, that's dumb.


Physical attraction and sex are not the only ways people benefit from dating one another. And most women don't immediately decide whether they want to sleep with someone upon looking at them.

No one said physical attraction wasn't a factor, but your statement implied that you can't develop attraction generally speaking over time after getting to know a person which is dumb. You don't have to immediately date someone upon first meeting to find out whether or not you work together, you can just learn more about each other and decide internally whether or not you'd make a good fit and then pursue something romantic once you have a better idea so you don't waste time in a relationship neither person was really sure about or prepared for.

That's not the implication in the slightest.

If these things did happen to you and someone is assuming you're gay for not wanting casual sex with women/randos those people are wrong. The people accusing you of being gay are most likely dudes anyway; assuming they're a woman is the first problem. And even if they are legitimately a woman and not trolling, they are an anomaly.

Most decent women will take no for an answer and won't question your sexuality just because you tell them or other women no. There are a handful of insecure and assholeish people in any category of people and those will never change and are also not a representation of the rest of the group.

Also, since males are supposed to always want sex at the drop of hat, that means it's ok to grab, catcall, and creep on teenagers half your age.

I never accused them of being incels. Just mentioned the ones lying aren't very many compared to the real victims.

It's easy to latch on to the idea that women are lying without being an incel because people probably don't want to believe the bad thing is happening or worry they'll be falsely accused or whatever other reason.

I have major issues with people who ACT stereotypically poor. Loud, obnoxious, lack of self-awareness, lack of public consciousness, self-centredness, unreasonably demanding, disregard for social etiquette.

I grew up very poor and didn't own a new peice of clothing until I was 18, everything was hand-me-downs from my brother who I shared a room with. I grew up in one of the most disadvantaged cities in my state. It was embarassing but it pushed me incredibly fucking hard to avoid staying there, it made me envy those with better upbringings and so I made conscious effort to adhere to social rules and blend with normal society.

Anyone in a first-world country, even second-world, can do this. So seeing people who are well into adulthood acting this way, making myself and other people uncomfortable, angers me. We do not deserve this, you are a piece of fucking human garbage and you blame everyone else. They need to get disappeared.

Fucking hell, stop being so literal. Okay it's not a grammatical word, it's a term. You know what I meant, stop being retarded.

I'm not talking about snobbery or assholery. I'm talking about lack of social etiquette.

The verbal abuse I experienced from rich people was arguably worse than what was coming from the crackheads.

Going to say, my interactions with wealthier people has been overwhelmingly positive compared to poor people. Many have helped me get out of my situation.

>It's almost like poverty isn't by choice
In the first world, poverty is a choice. At any point in time, you can put in the hard work make a decent life for yourself. Most people just refuse because "WAH WAH rich people didn't have to work hard to get where they are so why should I?"

Literally acting less poor has had a tangible impact on my life.

You can't just quit being poor by choice. Not in America anyway.

>> No.10449940

1. I made a distinction between the poor and those are poor and act it.
2. I'm poor and have been much poorer
3. Social norms are important

I didn't say wealth doesn't come from luck or through previous generations. But a leading factor in whether or not will be successful is their intelligence.

There is a rule of thumb that wealth does not survive three generations without intelligence.

This is implying that America has a strict fuedal heirarchy. It doesn't. You can become middle-class simply by making some very hard but smart decisions and making your efforts count.

>> No.10449941


America in particular may as well have a feudal hierarchy. Socioeconomic mobility is much worse than it used to be.

>> No.10449942

If lack of intelligence is often a leading factor in poverty, then how can you also claim that poverty is a choice?
You realize intelligence isn't a choice, right?

>> No.10449943

Because America is a developed economy. It has little to do with defined social structures and all to do with the fact that new wealth is not really being generated unlike countries who are generating large amount of new wealth like Japan and India.

You could argue that countries like Japan are worse (with a literal stagnating economy) and therefore are a fuedal society, but that doesn't fit the 'America bad because fuck the poor' narrative that people like to push.

I did say that intelligence is workable. Intelligence is definitely part choice. You can choose to study a topic or skill which will benefit you in the long term or you can choose to rot in front of netflix. Or argue on a seychellian turtle nesting fourm.

So you can choose to study/educate yourself but also an educated crackhead is a waste of an education and still just a crackhead? You're contradicting what you previously said.

It can't be both at once anon, get your stories straight and don't backtrack just because no one is sympathetic to your plight as a big brained genius who is so desperate to feel better than other impoverished people that he convinces himself he loves the taste of wealthy people's soles "cause social norms important rich man will help me get rich too he promised"

>> No.10449950

Not really. A crackhead is someone addicted to drugs/the lifestyle of poverty to the point that they cannot be reformed. A poor person is not necessarily a crackhead. A crackedhead is the just the existing caricature of everything I despise and what I use.

Also, I have recieved scholarships from the references and recommendations put forth by people who I have met and are sympathetic to my situation. I have recieved an offer for basically a blank cheque internship once COVID is over and travelling is normalised, all thanks to a welathy mentor.

These people have put their own reputations in my hands and stuck their necks out for me.

>> No.10449952


You know, for some reason I find it hard to believe people could become addicted to the luxurious lifestyle that is living in poverty. Especially when it is seemingly so bad that you're trying to get away from it. I highly doubt being horribly poor is some sort of dopamine hit the way you're implying it is, buddy.

>> No.10449955

What I mean by the lifestyle of poverty is the ease of poverty.

It's easier to just work a braindead, dead-end job or just to collect NEET bux.

It's easier to watch TV or play video games, than to work on a skill.

It's easier to work a full-time job, affording a meager but easy life than taking out loans and going to pursue higher education.

It's easier to just get drunk and/or do drugs than deal with your personal issues.

It's easier to just hang-out with the same group of dropkicks who do nothing to help your situation and in fact detract from it, like crabs in a bucket.

It's easier to just convince yourself that you have an okay life rather than being ambitious and striving for more.

It's easier to just count up small successes and never failing rather than making risky but calculated moves for very large success.

It's factors and ways of thinking like this that people choose to be in poverty or be poor.

Coming from being poor is fucking hard but have some fucking perseverance and some fucking resolve and you can make it out.

>> No.10449956


Apparently working your braindead job is not that easy since you're complaining so much.

As a fellow intelligent poor person, I can tell you taking out loans to go to uni was WAY easier than just working part time at a service job which is what my less smarter sister had to do. Being smarter makes your life infinitely easier/makes it easier to do the things you claim are harder for poor people.

So I don't really see where you are coming from claiming working a dead end job and getting government funds is somehow easier than getting to enjoy uni, get a degree, and have a professional career. Being addicted to drugs doesn't sound easy. In fact, it would be hard for me to even find drugs if I wanted them but if it's easy for poor people to end up on drugs that doesn't make the struggle of addiction to them not difficult. Legit crackheads are actually homeless and in far worse off situations than the "crackheads" at your workplace.

If everyone strove for more you would not have any fellow service workers who serve you at a restaurant or check you out at the grocery store, etc. it's fine to not care about being wealthy but I don't think these people are choosing to be poor or if they aren't smart they may not even know there is more to strive for or could have self image issues and think the "something more" is unattainable.

Get over yourself dude. You aren't the only smart poor person out there

>> No.10449959


So unintelligent low income people aren't working hard because you think their job is too easy as a self proclaimed genius? Tons of jobs are hard work/physical labor but for low pay and full time leaves you with little downtime for education. And if people are really that unintelligent then they wouldn't survive through uni anyway so taking out loans just to fail out it useless and a waste.

Have fun telling a server making $2.50 an hour and having to kiss rude customer's asses for tips while risking getting sick during a pandemic just to not become homeless that their job is braindead and easy.

>> No.10449963

I'm gonna say it.
I'm fine not striving for better constantly and being ambitious.
This might sound bad but honestly with how the world is going and the forecast for climate change, I'm fine getting my cheap dopamine hits while I can rather than working my ass off to maybe enjoy life when I'm 35, when likely the world will be crumbling around me anyway.
I'm not going to have kids.
For now, I just want to survive and enjoy the luxuries I have living in a first world country. I don't need to be a CEO, I don't need to be a programmer, I don't need a career to make me happy. Maybe that makes me unintelligent? Probably. I don't really care though. I don't think it means you're better than me though.

Gulls how stupid would it be to spend half my paycheck on frivolous things if i need to save?

I've been working for a year and saving every cent outside of half for rent but still don't have much. I need to move out in a few years and i will possibly be out of a job next year so this will drain my savings.

But shit, i've been grinding for years now. All i do is work, study and browse 4chan. No spending on fashion, games or manga, good skincare or hair products. I feel like my saving will never be enough at this pace so a month of being happier would be ok, even if logically i know it's not a good move.

No one had a problem with anon pulling hinself out of poverty. And most lolitas aren't poor to begin with.

People's main issue was really that he thinks dumb people deserve to be treated worse or at minimum heavily implying it by citing his reason of not being deserving of mistreatment by customers being his intelligence and not, you know, basic human decency.

The thing people are taking issue with is the implication that people are worth less or deserve mistreatment if they are not intelligent when intelligence is not a choice. Anon's rude customers are shitty and people would have been more supportive and comforting had he not gone on to make weird remarks and generalizations about poor people and poverty and intelligence and both invalidate pursuing education for certain groups but still also claiming that's what people need to do to get ahead in life.

His perspective is messed up on that front and that's all people really had the biggest problem with. Of course being shitty to service workers is bad but anon is weirdly justifying it for other people who are poor and have similar positions and claiming it's okay for the rich to do it and it's just a weird self jerkoff talking about how smart he thinks he is and how he literally thinks he is better than others for his intelligence and not his actions or good treatment of others.

A lot of people with BPD are stereotyped as manipulative and abusive for a reason. If they aren't actively seeking therapy and treatment and consciously trying to manage their condition they may mistakenly fall into harmful behavior patterns. And people can easily be lax with how they manage their physical or mental health.

>> No.10450526

I understand that, I have BPD, but when people categorize you as "genetically doomed" and treat you as such its hard to want to try to get better, especially if everyone acts like it's a lost cause. It doesn't help, at least.
I try to be conscious of my behavior even when I can't afford meds or therapy, I get peoples' frustration but its hurtful when they dismiss you as a person and only see an illness. There are some garbage people with personality disorders, I know firsthand because my siblings have NPD and witnessing how they behave is a constant reminder to always try to better myself. I'd like to believe I'm not doomed.
