The coffee talk in the happy thread reminded me that the local Costco we go to does not sell the ice coffee I usually buy anymore.

Not feeling well. This is the third day I've spent too tired to really get out of bed and couldn't eat anything but biscuits and some weak tea... AND I HATE WEAK TEA!
Normally I wouldn't be that worried, but seriously three days of just sleeping and not eating, and not even feeling much better is worrying.

There's a Perth in Scotland, IIRC.

i think I have reached the point where.... I'm not even sure if I'm being delusional or not anymore. I just have this urge to whine and vent things out, even though I don't really have any real problem apart from the extremely meta problem of me not being sure if I should vent, which is stupid. Some people says I'm too whiny, and some people say that I'm too quiet. It really infuriates me not to know. And again, a lot of people around me doesn't seem to need anyone to talk about their issues to, and they function just fine.

What is also bothering me is that every time I try to vent, I just fail completely to communicate what I'm trying to say, and I just give up and just try to wait for people to ask me, which never work because they have no reason to worry about a stranger on the internet, and as someone on the internet, I just know that.... and by just mentioning that I'm being whiny again.

The reason people don't seem to talk about their problems is because those people don't talk about 'em to you. Hey, looking at this thread, you can see we all need to vent every once in a while. It's normal.

actually i would be willing to speak of the problems without making a personal thread to speak of the problems but it would have a higher rate of spiraling into a shitstorm than an american politics thread at the height of the shutdown if the entire tea party registered here and started slapping bay12 in the face with a trout i believe

maybe not on this account but still

Yeah, but thing is, I try to listen to problems, and being an outlet to people is like... what I do. I can't do anything if people don't talk to me.

And I don't see how venting about a problem will incite a shitstorm unless people are just trying to pick a fight to begin with.

I keep telling myself I don't have time to keep up with my classes, with homework, with marching band, keep telling myself to throw my arms up in resignation and declare it a fruitless effort. You put too much on your plate, Naxza, y'just need 28 hours in your day, really.

Yet I have the time in my day, and now I must tell myself I need to develop time management skills. As of this moment, I cannot think of a class that I don't have a serious grade concern about, and if/when it all falls on my head and I lose what little foothold I have on not being robbed blind to get my mandatory degree, there'll be nobody to call out but myself.

Objective- venting is good. I've done it a lot lately, as I've learned a number of things recently and it can be tough to swallow. If you've an urge to vent but nothing to, maybe y'just need a topic you can passionately discuss instead so you've got an emotional expulsion, but in a productive, insightful manner. Sure beats the mental vomit we tend to purge here.

I'm an informal consoler, I'm not trained. I just talk to people as a friend and refer them to therapists if they're willing.

Okay, guys, you do need to keep in mind that you're:
a) Not trained for counseling.
b) Letting people walk on you.
c) Under no actual obligation to listen.


I know you're doing what you think any decent human being should do, but you're still human. You still need to take care of yourselves just as much as you take care of others.

I can say from experience what you're doing leads to self-contempt, jealousy, and pride. You'll hate yourselves for not being able to do more, you'll want something everyone else seems to have, and you'll look down on others for not helping as much as you are.

I'm not saying you shouldn't care about others. I am saying you shouldn't be afraid to help yourselves, too. As a side note, some people require professional help; refer them to a professional instead of trying your own solutions.



I'm saying this not to make you feel bad, but because I've done this in the past and I've had friends who have tried to do this. If someone wants a sympathetic ear, be their friend instead. If someone needs help, unless you have a degree in psychology, you are not that help.

Contrast. Damnit! Who put these onions on my desk?
So many of the girlygirl problems are social problems holy crap. "finding someone who will love and care for you no matter what?" "trying to forget him but he's all you think about?" "wanting someone to hold you and tell you it will be ok?" Srsly? "wishing summer were over so you can wear your favorite clothes again?" Srsly?

There's more to life than finding a date and amassing tons of friends. If there isn't then I should just quit now, because obviously I'm doing it wrong. This mentality that having as many friends as possible and that "being single is a horrible terrible thing" annoys me to no end. It just seems like an incredibly shallow and insecure mentality that's overly reliant on others and amassing material goods for promoting self-worth.

Whatever, I guess. Rant over. People are weird. Girls are weird. Guys are weird too. People are just weird.
