I've found myself on the cusp of dysfunctionality in the real world after having lived in the woods for three months before returning to college a couple weeks ago.

What's most disturbing is how everyone around me just readily accepts this sort of life. Where you're surrounded by concrete and plastic with cameras watching you everywhere you go. You need to beg a computer for permission to do anything. Want to get into your building where you sleep? Want to go study in the library? Want to go grab some grub? Better have your keycard. Everyone is reduced to a sniveling beggar.

I was just thinking that a lot of guys who were nerdish, quiet or uneventful in general during school times, whom later became rich, would probably trade all their current fortune and status for a chance to be summoned back in HS as a giga chad with access to hundreds of young pussy.

I cant make decisions. Even simple stuff like should I go out to buy yoghurt or not.

Haven't seen a "questions that don't deserve their own thread" post in a while so I'm just gonna ask this here -

What's a good alternative to using the phrase "I hope" (i.e., I hope this email finds you well, I hope you're having a good day) as a kind introduction in an email or message in a professional setting? I've used and read this trite intro so much in uni and at work and need something that conveys a similar tone without overdoing it. Sometimes I want to send a more sincere and original email and just feel cold beginning my email that way. I've tried thinking of something equally concise and it's driven me mad. Help me out bros, I need unironic advice

>le peaked in high school meme
The ultimate cope, I've read this a million times. Has truth to it but there are plenty of high school chads who turn into successful, well-adjusted adults. They had the best of worlds, late bloomers didn't.
High school is worth a lot, people who had good experiences in high school aren't all jocks who burnt out, they were at the top of the hierarchy without money/accomplishments/other factors that elevate status later in life. You can be a rich 30 year old sleeping with a dozen 20 year olds but it'll never be the same as enjoying teen pussy in your formative years or having a wholesome high school sweetheart instead of a few flings with teen sluts 10 years later to compensate for your lack of status. There's nothing wrong with developing those skills later in life but high school reveals hierarchy in its purest form. It is the great equalizer. Hurts but it's true. And I say this as someone who fits the description of the person you replied to so I'm not trying to LARP or put you down anon

You know, I feel like I've always been focused on seeking out mentors, like "finding a Merlin," when in truth I need to be my own guide and not be helplessly reliant on others' advice.

I don't think I'm fast enough in social situations and will say the wrong things in disagreements or comebacks. Been repeating the "night after" with this chick I was so deep in the friend zone with (she was in a LDR) and I think I could have made her mine if I had actually spoken how I felt.

At 25 and still relatively aimless I am being forced to come to terms with "who I really am". While I am still young, I am no longer the bundle of potential energy that I was when I was 18 and I am starting to get the sense that my character traits are fairly firmly set. It's not that I think people are incapable of change beyond a certain age, but rather that any change from this point on is a matter of strengthening and maximising pre-existing qualities as opposed to say, radical transformation into an entirely different person. So who am I? I know that I am not a wild, risk taker. In my youth I admired "free spirits" like Hunter S. Thompson and Jack Kerouac. But I am not them. I think that people like them possess a rare spirit and if I were one of those people I would know it by now. Sure, I like to have fun and I like to have adventures. I enjoy travelling and drinking and driving fast and taking the occasional risk here and there, but the truth is that I enjoy all these things within the bounds of a relatively safe, comfortable, and secure lifestyle. I would love to throw caution to wind and do nothing but write all day, but I don't think I have the balls to live with that kind of insecurity, especially in a contemporary climate where it the possibility of making any sort of a living out of that is close to zero.

Perhaps if I had been born last century, I might have had a chance to at least work at a magazine or a newspaper, but those opportunities - while not literally impossible - are certainly close to impossible. For example, a friend of mine 10 years older has made an interesting career from journalism that has allowed him to travel the world, but the ladder that he climbed to get there literally does not exist in my country anymore - the schools and agencies he worked at to gain experience have all closed down.

That was a tangent, but anyhow - I have to confront the fact that at my core I am person who craves security. I always have been, but I have always resisted confronting that fact because simultaneously I have always wanted to be "cool". But perhaps I am not cool, and that's OK. Or at least, I will have to be content with finding ways to be "cool" in between a relatively normal, secure life. Is this maturity?

I trust your therapist will help you anon. As with anything, it is largely about exposure. The more you force yourself to make decisions and live with the consequences (even incredibly minor things like buying yoghurt) the more comfortable you will feel. You have to step outside your comfort zone in other words, which is what your therapist will tell you I'm sure.

Discovering that I can simply drink raw eggs in milk instead of making a meal has been a life altering event for me. 6 eggs with some milk is 500 calories, 12 eggs is 1000. I can just do that whenever I feel like it instead of having to ever worry about food, which I really hate eating. I ate 30 eggs in one day a few days ago. What's more is my body appears to literally just absorb the entire fucking egg, nothing comes out. And it makes zero dishes, you just clean the egg glass and through out the cartons.

I had to actually cook a meal for people and eat it tonight and it was almost distressing.

The government officially introduced the coronapassport here today. I don't want to live in a country where I have to get approved by the government to access public spaces. People should be able to refuse a vaccine if it doesn't align with their religion or worldview. I don't even think the vaccines are harmfull but I'm appalled the government is infringing on people's rights like this. All of this is done under the guise of alleviating pressure on healthcare and protecting the vulnerable. Meanwhile 85% of people is fully vaccinated here. On average 450 people die every day in this country, 4 of them due to covid. The government has done absolutely nothing since the start of the pandemix to expand hospital capacity. The passport is presented as a temporary measure but no end date is given.

What's most shocking to me is how many people seem to support this measure. It honestly makes me want to leave and never come back

Yeah I would agree, which is further justifies my overall conclusion. I know people like this and they're not exactly happy. Not that I think happiness is necessarily a goal one should totally aspire to, since happiness is always elusive - but for every creative layabout that makes it big and has some impact on the world there are a thousand others who are wallowing in stress and alienation. I have to get real.

Im so afraid to express myself, even on an anonymous imageboard. I am.a victim of childhood tramau and i have so many walls up that it feels really difficult expressing or even identifying my true emotions, feelings, and actions. Ever since my wife left me in janruary everything is falling, i cant tell if its good or bad. Part of me feels free, but im 30, and there is this other part of me, much louder, who says "youre the same worthless fuck youve alwas been and you always will be. Go die already"
In order to answer the question "should I kill myself" properly, one must first take into account the fact that suicide does make the world an inherently worse place-- you're putting an immense amount of suffering upon all of those whom love you the most-- so the question then becomes "is the world worth saving?" Answering this is tricky because, certainly, one could say that there are people that are worth saving so making the world a more shitty place for them to live does imply that you dont care about them-- or at least that you dont care enough about yourself to get over your individual suffering for long enough to try to get into a better spot.

I kind of regret not buying this when it was $50. Back then, I was hard up on cash and felt like $50 was too much to pay for what would essentially be an oversized coffeetable book, something that I would keep around as an anomaly and interesting thing that I would never seriously sit down to read for years. Now that I'm more fiscally secure, I've been reading Schmidt's other work on Dalkey (I'm working on learning German to read some of my favourite authors) and I feel that regret of not having at least bought it and kept it. Anyone actually buy this thing and have it sitting around? I do have that School for Atheists from Green Integer and if it's anything like that then I think I was right in thinking I probably wouldn't get around to reading it any time soon.

You people overrate the teenage years. I had a pretty normal HS experience where I would go to parties, smoke weed with the jocks, and hook up with girls etc like all the "cool kids" do and I wouldn't go back to it. It was fun but I'm happier with where I am at now because I am independent and able to make my own money instead of living at my parents with no car. If you're an adult it's rather pathetic to dwell on high school like that past a certain point. You need to focus on the now and the future instead of the past when everyone else has moved on with their lives and begun their adulthood.

Anon, Jack Kerouac is the kind of person you are becoming. There's a reason he turned out so miserable and died so young, drifting from one idea to another without ever finding any satisfying concrete answers or beliefs. He destroyed himself.

I have a genius sci-fi novel idea:
>In the future, people generally make relationships with robots designed to be their perfect partner
>Our protagonist wants a human gf, not a robot
>Ends up joining neoluddite cult, spends time with hippie anarchist chicks and guys
>Gets a hippie gf
>Struggles with relationship problems
The point of the novel would be to explore whether it is worth keeping some of the challenges in life which technology could solve, and if having challenges make life more worth living than having things solved for you. Sadly I lack the skill to write such a novel. I am training myself with short story writing. Or perhaps I should just plug it into AI Dungeon or the like and have a complete story. Meta!

I have developed a disdain for humanity. I know it's cringe, and I know it makes me look bad, pretentious, etc. But in my opinion, it is true.
To illustrate my point, let's take the known catholic priests=pedophiles thing, most discussion about catholicism will eventually end up with it brought up, occasionally for good reason, everyone knows of them, which is good, but, if you would check some statistics about it, the rate of molestation is on par with most other professions that interact with children on a regular basis; (Know that I am not minimizing anything). So I wondered, why is this? Why is the catholic church the ever eternal child rape institution, while the education system gets a pass? Because the motherfucking screen told them to, that's why, because mass media ran story after story, launched investigation after investigation, that's why. Nothing else, these faggots only care at whatever the screen tells them to care about or affects them directly. There are a lot more examples of this kind, everywhere you go.
I know some of you already knew this, and will roll your eyes, but I didn't, and I am starting to hate it here.

Ethics is so secondary to other forms of philosophy such as metaphysics and semiotics lmao ethics literally cannot exist by itself. How does one even develop an ethical system without a metaphysical system or without an understanding of semiotics. Ethics is like sub-philosophy. It fucking blows
>>
>>19053973
It's an interesting topic because it can tell us a lot about both humanity and the catholic church. The first thing that jumps into your mind when you hear about it is "catholic priests are pedos", but it's more like "many pedos chose to become catholic priests" in reality. There is nothing inherently bad about the relationship between priests and young boys, but it's a dynamic that was abused by pedos to fulfill their lust, and the fact the catholic church attempted to cover it up makes it look terrible. But if you think about it, ultimately the worst part about this story is the fact that these guys not only molested children, but lived lives of total hypocrisy and basically lived the opposite of what they preached. It makes Christianity look terrible when these guys who are (supposed to be) living their lives in direct service of God at all times, and who hear scripture and discuss faith constantly, still manage to lose to that lustful side of themselves. More than anything, it really evokes cynicism in mankind as a whole. If there's any proof that truly damned souls do exist out there, it's these guys that constantly interacted with the word of god, were exposed to it for most of their days, and still went and diddled kids. I'm sure plenty of them came up with some inner coping mechanism to justify it to themselves. It doesn't matter. It's just sad

It feels like my gf has lost passion in me, I’m just not gonna give her any attention any more since she takes it for granted now. It really is a terrible feeling, she’s just not the same person from the 5 months when we first got together. I’ll look at pictures of her from that time and tear up because of how much I miss her. I had never felt something so emotionally strong then, it was so overpowering that it completely eliminated all worries. There is no other feeling so powerful . I’m convinced that’s what believing in gods love must feel like. So free so joyful, like I had more than everything I needed, so fucking alive as if ever touch sight and smell was 100 fold stronger. but that feeling now is clearly gone, I no longer feel alive just a husk

Gotta find those hidden places around campus, lad. There always are some, places that most people don't know about, that exist independently from the morass of the normal. An unlocked door here, an abandoned lecture hall here; these are what await you if you know where to look.

There is never active sexual tension or a desire to bang but I remember one time I was in the kitchen in a flat we moved into my last year of high school, and my sister was wearing a really loose tank top where I could see most of her breast from the side, and if she leaned forward I could easily see all of it. I stayed in the kitchen chatting with her for like 30+ minutes just trying to get a closer look, and I got a really strong hard-on that I had to try and hide. She commented I was talking to her for an unusually long time so I don't think it dawned on her why I was doing it.

That's the only remotely sexual encounter we've had. But I still have a recurring dream where we have sex and I just really go to town on her. It's weird because I don't feel that attracted to her irl

Depends on the context, but honestly just cut it out all together. Especially for work related stuff, people care about the actual content of your message, not how unique your pleasantries are.

Just realized I got emotionally addicted to reading as a coping mechanism for the shitfest that was my life for the past few years. Not only that but it had accelerated due to a certain global "unprecedented" and "the new normal" that I'm certainly sick of hearing about.

It depends on context, if it's a cold email to someone new or in a professional setting to a higher up, be polite but don't use "hope", it's too familiar. If it's to someone you have a rapport with, then don't worry about dispensing those pleasantries. I find that I'd just google a list of greetings or sign offs and consult a thesaurus if I'm feeling too cookie cutter about it.
If anything, I just mimic the recipient's tone (be it casual, with emojis, or just to the point with no fluff) and pattern of writing.

>Man is by nature a social animal; an individual who is unsocial naturally and not accidentally is either beneath our notice or more than human. Society is something that precedes the individual. Anyone who either cannot lead the common life or is so self-sufficient as not to need to, and therefore does not partake of society, is either a beast or a god.

I've only recently understood how much people in my boat crave social contact. There have been years where I haven't spoken to anyone, and the solitude only became comfier as the months went by. You begin to notice your senses heighten with time. Walking in the woods is such a joy when you look at mosses and lichens, and they appear more striking than ever before. Today I wrote several pages about moss, yesterday it was about the moths flitting around lamplight. I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring

It shocks me that more Americans don’t want to leave this country. Like me, many others are not revolutionary or patriotic ideologues. They feel little affinity for the ideologies and mutual com patriotism that floats around in this place, and the absence of thay doesn’t overcome the obvious ethnic boundaries. My family wasn’t even here during the civil war. We’re not even English. They came here because they had to, because they wanted a better life and as such, I want to leave for reasons at least the same and more. Why shouldn’t others? Why don’t others? They should feel themselves trapped in a civic prison and be eager to escape.

Light of the morning descend from empyrean Glory,
Heaven unveil soft before me as Rose tinted Dawn,
Great One dispel the conceit from old ages Hoary,
Love with unborn Wings thou arises and Death withdraws.

Light of the Vastness of incorruptible Being,
Sight of the endless and innumerable Planets
Filled with the opulence of uncreated Splendor
Girth with the Empery sempiternal and unknown.

Praiseful I bow to thee, great one of Spirit perfect,
Heart be Confonded for deus has thee for Dais,
Soul be confonded, for God himself shall correct thee,
Spirit be confonded and burst forth in holy Praise.

Mighty and terrible one who has Void for dwelling,
Self of my self, mirror of I, unveil before me.

I've been thinking: It would be great if there was a platform that imitates /lit/ in a way, but implements more gatekeeping in order to assure higher post quality.
In an ideal world, this platform would require a user to submit some sort of proof of academic credentials, e.g. at least a Bachelor's in a relevant field. However, this would be rather hard to implement; it would require a potential user to share personal information with someone he can't trust.
I've yet to come up with a proper solution for this. There are services like DegreeVerify, which offer online verification of degrees, but I don't know if they are comprehensive and how much personal information they require. I'll have to research this further.
Until then, I might put this project on the back burner.

I work part-time in a pharmacy as a pencil pusher and today my boss asked me if i can take a look at some of payments her and her daughter got from insurance for braceletts and simiar stuff; apparently she just couldn't wrap her mind around the numbers and tables or something. So i got to work and made her a nice little excel sheet with a all the relevant bills and the payments she got from the insurance company, but to my suprise she got extremly pissed; not at me but at the insurance guys. Apparently she talked to that corpo and they said they would take up to a max of 80% of whatever medical costs would come up (note the "up to"), while in reality they took up a bit more than 2/3rds. This is where it gets weird; my boss was so mad about this grave injustice she had all staff come to us to collectivly seethe at this disgusting affront. My relative indifference seems to have bothered her, so she asked me right then and there if this wasn't a good reason to get really mad.
I've had my fair share of dealing with these bloodsuckers too, but isn't this a bit much, almost performative? Based on her job i know she has to deal with insurances on a daily basis so why the suprise? Am i too young/sheltered/ not-female to understand this?

He pulled his necktie down smooth while he gathered his intellect, will, self-knowledge, and conviction and determined that when this latest woman came as she surely would this would simply be his very last marijuana debauch. He'd simply smoke so much so fast that it would be so unpleasant and the memory of it so repulsive that once he'd consumed it and gotten it out of his home and his life as quickly as possible he would never want to do it again. He would make it his business to create a really bad set of debauched associations with the stuff in his memory. The dope scared him. It made him afraid. It wasn't that he was afraid of the dope, it was that smoking it made him afraid of everything else. It had long since stopped being a release or relief or fun. This last time, he would smoke the whole 200 grams—120 grams cleaned, destemmed — in four days, over an ounce a day, all in tight heavy economical one-hitters off a quality virgin bong, an incredible, insane amount per day, he'd make it a mission, treating it like a penance and behavior-modification regime all at once, he'd smoke his way through thirty high-grade grams a day, starting the moment he woke up and used ice water to detach his tongue from the roof of his mouth and took an antacid — averaging out to 200 or 300 heavy bong-hits per day, an insane and deliberately unpleasant amount, and he'd make it a mission to smoke it continuously, even though if the marijuana was as good as the woman claimed he'd do five hits and then not want to take the trouble to load and one-hit any more for at least an hour. But he would force himself to do it anyway. He would smoke it all even if he didn't want it. Even if it started to make him dizzy and ill. He would use discipline and persistence and will and make the whole experience so unpleasant, so debased and debauched and unpleasant, that his behavior would be henceforward modified, he'd never even want to do it again because the memory of the insane four days to come would be so firmly, terribly emblazoned in his memory. He'd cure himself by excess.

There are plenty of good reasons to leave but none that quite ground the "Get out ASAP" mentality a lot of aspiring expatriates have. The country is obviously in decline but unlike what most people say, it's probably going to be a long, slow decline, and things will remain calm while the economy is running smoothly. I dunno why but it's impossible to imagine any real civil conflict in modern America, even protests where a few people die always have a sense of unreality to them. Riots could become more common, but until something truly shakes up the order of things, day to day life should remain pretty normal. Still, I understand you. It's the difference between holding out a shred of hope that things will improve versus abandoning that hope that makes a difference. America has no real intention to solve the most important problems like healthcare or student debt or poverty because everyone has been tricked into thinking the 20 or so dozen black guys that get killed by cops a year is a bigger issue. There is something weird going on that just outright prevents actual conversation now. History might be predestined by nature but increasingly it feels like we have less a say in it than ever.
>>
>>19055365
Hope really has nothing to do it. Hope implies any one particular ideology or desire for this country’s future. As for me, I desire nothing at all for it. I feel no affinity whatsoever. The way I see it, this is a place my ancestors came to because they had to or because they could, not necessarily because they were motivated by ideology or affinity and to any extent they were, I’m free to counter it. Such is the fleeting nature of ideology. And the older I get, the more I shed off ideologies and the more any affinity for it and it’s people remains in me. I believe that’s natural. Thus, the only natural consequence is to inwardly detach from it and all “places” entirely as a matter of coincidence or just leave as soon as possible.

>>19053973
but it's because of the contrast. it's because even secular minded people, whether consciously or unconsciously, expect a church to be a holy place. they expect priests to be better people than others even if they themselves are irreligious. I think it's a deep seated instinct in us all. so when the deepest corruption is found at the heart of the institution that presents itself as the intermediary between heaven and earth, it's a shock. it's because an institution like the Church inherently operates according to a different standard than worldly institutions, and there is an expectation present that isn't there in a different context. yes, our culture is rapidly shifting towards manifesting the Antichrist, and that's some part of why anything christian is fixated upon, but regardless, I think the fixation is entirely justified. the pedophile priests are the embodiment of wolves inside sheep's clothing.

Your therapist is showing you professional concern. This act of 'spite' will mean nothing to them. They are not emotionally attached to your behaviour.

Self-destructive behaviour with intention of hurting someone is really just an extended form of self-pity. You want them to feel something for you.

Yeah it's hard to see how a civil war would work in 21st century U.S. Though I know some political scientists raise it as serious possibility in the near future, I find it hard to believe.

Unconquerable compass, line and ruler,
Regulation, revelation, both admix,
Reveal phenomenal the triune-divine.
Triangle and Square, contrast of black and white,
A sphere the mind, and Cubic altar it Shrines,
Pentagram behold invoking hexagram,
Betold of excrement reformed excellent!
Gold from Lead this life from death from Ash-cloud Breath,
Behold the blade, behold the chisel, true I
Am reformed and transformed to a Pyramid,
I am become I am who I am and who
Was from endless atziluth-eternity
And bornless-oroboros-I-am-become I.

I went in with low expectations, arriving two minutes prior to the appointment which is usually out of my taste. I parked crookedly on the already slanted lines and strolled in with my short tie making me feel the part of a clown. The ladies look to me from their counters and I tell them, "Here for the three o'clock interview." Next comes the part where you sit and pretend not to exist but that cut close arrival time worked out in the end.

They led me down the hall, I don't recall their names and if I did I couldn't tell which name belonged to who. I offered my hand and they wiped it clean with sanitizer as we spoke. I've been getting good at these interviews. Really learning how not to care. So we kept it casual and they told me the hours. For once they read the resume and all I had to do was nod.

They unlocked the doors and showed me out. Whole affair was done in less than fifteen minutes. I expect to get my hopes up before they're dashed but this time it went by so fast I'm worried I actually got the damn thing.

Long ago, back when I had friends, we did a good bit of tunnel hacking on campus. A disused bathroom area was sometimes left unlocked opposite the bicycle storage room for which we were issued keys, littered with roaches and smashed fixtures. Imagine a room similar to the prison room in Saw. A nearby tunnel led into the plant area, and if you could sneak past the guy in the office, you got into the service areas. I always compared the thing to the tunnels that Dallas crawled through in Alien. Eventually we got caught, but it was worth it. Then we got into the attic of the dorm shortly before move-out. At the end of the attic, near the unique top-floor unit, was a large, door-sized wooden panel plastered with softcore 1970s pornography. Clearly, the nearby denizens had an access to this attic space, somehow, and had a seedy spank-chamber all to themselves. I hope it is still there.

Later, I found more practical uses for the spaces. In a nearby dorm, another basement bicycle storage room had a functional sink, and this proved to be a good place to blast out my ears with water. It was also a nice quiet place to drink alone in peace while studying.

Another time, we hacked an elevator in one of the classroom buildings, only to discover a mezzanine area between floors 1 and 2, where a bunch of old chairs were kept in musty storage.

Then there was the disused brewery in the next town, we scaled an extremely dangerous "staircase" that must have gone about 20 feet in the air, basically only the spine was intact. Clambering into one of the brewing vats, we banged on the drum, making music for a few minutes. The sort of industrial wastelands that I would later learn were used by Metgumbnerbone to record improvised music.

And she pretty much stuck to it as well. She was very impatient, told me to speak quickly, didn't want to waste time (we booked an hour but she treated it like she had 5 minutes), reenacted the texts, etc.

At the start she said didn't want to be near me, even made me walk across the room so she could look at something that was near me, and put a chair in the door so it was ajar.

By the end of it, she was inches away from me, too afraid to wipe the blood from my brow because SHE WAS TOO TEMPTED. She started swooning over my blue eyes. I started cooing at her "you looooved it when I touched your shoulder", "you want to hold my hands", "you want to touch me; to kiss me" and you could tell she was considering it. I definitely could have fucked her yesterday.

How did I become a chad?

BEING MASCULINE.

I think the next time I see her, I'll go in for a kiss. I'll sweet talk about her wanting me to caress her neck, shoulders, and hips while miming the motions without actually touching her, then lean over lean over and whisper in her ear "I'm going to take you", pause, "is that what you want?". If she says "yes" (lmao she will), I'll grab her by the waist, pull her to me, stare into her eyes, order her to take off her mask, take off mine, and get to kissing. Realistically, I should have done this yesterday, but ah well. Live and learn.

is it wrong of me feel suspicious of a friend that I've reconnected with? not in the sense that they mean to do me harm or that they're malicious, or that they even have negative feelings for me. it's just that this friend suddenly abandoned me for months and months and ignored my attempts to mend that until eventually we just patched it after a long time had passed. on one hand I feel selfish because I think if they really just wanted to leave me behind and end our friendship, they had the perfect time to do so when we were apart but they still came back. on the other hand, it did happen before, and they admitted as much it was intentional, so I guess part of me is just waiting for it to happen again but more permanently.

>disappointing boyfriend
You kicked me right in the dick, anon. I haven't dated in like eight years, so I feel like it would take too much out of me to try to get back into the swing of things. And even when I did date in the past, I was always more interested in beating off and/or watching anime alone to put much effort into being a decent boyfriend.
On a related note, I saw a girl with green hair downtown on my way to work this morning, and my first thought was that I wouldn't mind hanging out with someone like her for "practice," but would never be able to "settle down" and have kids with someone who dyes their hair like that after their college years. Which means I'll probably never be able to stomach a relationship with anyone, and accordingly will never be a decent partner for anyone because of such pretensions.

This afternoon, I was stricken with a devastating realization. I was speaking with the head IT guy from another of my firm's offices, and I was just shooting the shit in a very jokey tone, when I realized I'd somehow created a false personality to get along with people in similar positions in this company, and that it's probably far too late to inject any Sincerity into my work-life. Then again, between suicidal depression and anti-Semitism, there isn't much of my sincere self that's really appropriate for the workplace.

>I wouldn't mind hanging out with someone like her for "practice," but would never be able to "settle down" and have kids with someone who dyes their hair like that after their college years.

I have done this. Dated a girl for about 6 months to "get practice". She was pretty dumb, but had enormous tits and a tight body. It ended horribly though, which is really no surprise because really its a horrible thing to do to someone - but I will say that it worked. It gave me a whole lot more confidence in both relationships, dating, and sex.

Yeah, I've been flirting with the idea of lifting and trying to get with 5/10s or something, to see if I can find value in living. But it seems like it would require too much effort and it will be much easier to just become an hero. That said, I've gotten more and more into fat milkers the past few years, so I'd probably easily fall in line for a girl with big tits who is stupid enough to find me interesting.

I've got a problem somewhere in the same space. Though my fear has nothing to do with being a disappointing boyfriend, with my last(and only) gf from the outset I made it a big point that we communicate clearly and often. I feel like in all ways I was capable of I satisfied her needs. We unfortunately broke up after a little over 2 years because of factors out of our control and I'd rather have lost her than have us spend months torturing each other with a long-distance relationship.

My problem is just really that since then I have no romantic appetite. Maybe I'm just so spoiled from having been with a sensible, loving woman but I've no desire to flirt or play little texting games or obscure myself to attract women. It's so fucking tiresome and small.

Three years have gone by now and it's not like there are no girls that are attracted to me, I just can't suffer them. I must've mated for life or something I really don't know. What I do know is that I have no stomach for the base or coquettish nature of dating.

I increasingly don't understand why corporal punishment fell out of favor in the West. It's still used in portions of Asia and Africa. Singapore is an advanced city-state and they still use corporal punishment. Why do our only options for punishing crimes seem to be jail or the death penalty? You can even make the argument that corporal punishment is more humane than jail, given the state of modern prisons. Just take a whip or a flail and put some stripes on a man's back if he's committed grand theft auto or aggravated assault. It's probably better for him in the long run than five years in prison.

I'm not sure where I stand on corporal punishment, but I think its interesting when cultural approaches to punishment clash. Australian aboriginals would traditionally do things like spear a guy in the thigh if he did something that went against clan law and there have been calls by some elders to bring this practice back to deal with youth crime. Part of me thinks it could actually work, because a young indigenous man may respond better to punishment from his indigenous elders, than from being locked in a prison by a white government which really only perpetuates a feeling of resentment between the two communities. But then on the other hand I'm very squeamish about the idea of spearing a cunt in the thigh. Nonetheless, its interesting.

I've been having strong feelings for my gf's friend, and after taking her home tonight (just the two of us) they keep getting stronger. What upsets me most is that these feelings are just ways for the unconscious to reach me in changing things about myself. Not to mention the truth of her being my gf's friend and nothing happening romantically is heavy, but a necessary weight to carry. The idea of how I feel being projections skewing the reality of our relationship terrifies me. I'm standing inbetween making someone's life hell, and keeping things in check to not go to shit for no reason. A good outside of being able to better myself has come out of this though, the muses seem to have taken a liking to this.

Begin a mod on a social media seems to be the perfect way to find the perfect someone especially where I can engage her questions without her knowing. But what if she knew from the beginning and hinted at it? I personally would not trust someone with that type of intelligence nor attempt to play games/bother her, only an idiot would. Who knows what she knows and what is it all to her? But that doesn't mean I can't be some kind of distanced friend of some kind.

I'm a spineless piece of shit. I lack guts. I don't know how to confront others. Yes, I have my own opinions and can express them, but I'm always hesitant to "hate". I think that some things must be hated. When something or someone opposes or insults your most fundamental beliefs you must hate it. But I can't. I feel that if I express that hate I'll hurt others, or maybe the real problem is that I'm afraid of getting hurt. It's probably the later. I think I have some serious self-steem problems. I have 21. I'm young but not that much. It's embarassing for an adult to not be able to ACT in real life. I can't impose my will. How the fuck do I solve this?

Even that

>When something or someone opposes or insults your most fundamental beliefs you must hate it

is part of the social conformism. Simply put for elementary school kids, it would be plagiarised into ''it is natural to hate what is different''. Your only mistake is you take your beliefs too seriously. Why are you certain they hold a higher value than the ones that oppose yours? Could they exist without the ones you seem to hate? It is all a game, nothing can be proved to be right, true or valuable. You are giving them their value.
Yet that is needed in order to live life, so do what you do but don't let others get under your skin. Instead of getting angry or pissed try to understand why they think in a different way. That's the game. Confidence will come, you are still 21 and it is only natural to be doubtful or feel spineless. A healthy amount of doubt is always virtuous, no belief is as solid as we tend to think, we just accept it to save our selves time and sanity. You are doing well anon (for your age).

Don't get me wrong, I know that I'm not always right. Of course that multiple points of view can coexist. And I think that I'm pretty tolerant. I don't want to change that, it's a virtue. But believing in something is useless if you can't defend it. Let's be honest, in real life a lot of people will try to step on you. I feel like I wouldn't be able to step up in those situatons. I don't want to get mad for the sake of it, I want to underwrite and reassure my existence. By the way, thanks for your post, I really appreciate it and made me feel a little bit better.

People like to believe they're safe. Before the news stories broke, both my parents and all their friends and family knew about abusive priests and nuns. It was an open secret in a lot of Catholic countries and communities. But they believed in the overall good. The same thing happens with teachers and doctors. The American gymnastics scandal about the doctor molesting kids spent years with the same kind of open secret, as did the movie industry, as do schools, therapy, and nursing homes. People who want to abuse the vulnerable can find places where they have nothing but vulnerable people around them, and where people believe the greater good is somehow worth the open secret of abuse. You see it a lot in care facilities for not just kids, but disabled and elderly adults. Beyond obvious forms of abuse, those groupings of vulnerable people also attract those who want to do charity so they can feel superior to someone else, which can lead to authorities being offended if the vulnerable assert their independence or rights. The scandals about conservatorships for celebrities often have some validity in that they're vulnerable, but also tend to be fought on the basis that they make the vulnerable more so rather than provide any path to independent living.
Ironically, the de facto hierarchy implied by any service to any vulnerable group often means that the people most damaging and dangerous to the survival and thriving of the vulnerable are those entrusted with their care. Logically, if the problem of the vulnerability is solved, they're out of a job.
