What @justB said. Mass Media (i.e, TV & movies/news) have very often portrayed the wrong way of a concept and then frame it as a concrete actualization of something. Remember buddy, "The description of something doesn't necessarily mean that's all it does." True, there are a couple of teens who may be alcoholics and rebellious wanderers. I know such teens among my own friend group. But tell you what? You're living better than them. They're drinking and wasting their life, while they can give some time to prioritise about making success. That's what you're doing. You go and work at late nights and that's a sign of your strength as a successful person. Do you think the "painted teens" have something to brag like they earned something by their own hard work? Nope they're just their parent's child. They're aren't manned up while you are!
As for love, it's complicated. Either you really didn't find the right one, or perhaps you're an aromantic? Just laying out the possibilities. But hey, you sound like a decent and successful guy buddy. Don't let the society doubt your potential.💖✨
i know i am just a stranger to you, but i care for you. you are not alone. i am also confused about my sexuality. i cannot tell if i am heterosexual or asexual. all of the guys i have come across have always sexually harassed me and attempted to manipulate me into going out with them. like you, i also do not think i am enough for my parents. we crave validation, but aren’t met with it even when we try to excel in school. allow me to say this, even though your parents may not appear to be proud, i am extremely proud of you. you have come so far. you are so strong. i also have the whole political situation in my house. it hurts to hear a family member agree with such horrid ideas. my mother and father are trump supporters, whereas my sister and i are not. my parents are always constantly yelling at the tv. it gets so loud. whenever my sister and i express our side, we get shot down immediately and tension grows. we can all get through this together.
@rebelw-acause literally same that was the best thing that happened to me I was so happy and then everything went back to normal and I get stressed by everything and feel like my life’s going so quickly
Oh yes that feeling of getting ignored or going unnoticed. Yup had that trauma myself irl.
You know what, I never thought anything was wrong with me, I made a pact with myself that I am just not good at making friends or getting attention.
I stopped trying and somehow ignored the feeling of getting ignored. I stopped caring and things fell in place gradually.
Nah I am not advising you anything, just sharing my experience with you.
@Minus not at all happy being !! I know to breathe with Consciousness and I can reach any state of mind for myself, I been there just done it all types of it what ever it existed here in this earth .. I could say with my experience, drugs enhances the imagination and it's a knowledge , only I need to analise the realisation what I learnt the knowledge with drugs or else it will be unconscious forgotten knowledge.. it was some sense able suggestion and it's up to you how you make sense of it ..🙏😊
imo it would probably be smart to just be upfront and tell him about the rumor. just be like "hey there's a rumor about me liking you but it's bullshit, we cool tho?"
it might be a bit awkward, but at least that way he'd hear it from you first and those rumors wouldn't ruin your friendship :D
@noonenightsky Nothing? Why do you have to do anything? Just go with the flow.
You gave up on the first guy. It didn't work out with the second one. The first dude's best friend has a girlfriend. So you can like him from a distance. (Don't be a biatch and ruin their relationship.)
Yesh, this is very NoRmAL.
So? Let him stare. If it's bothering you in anyway, then tell him to stop staring. If he doesn't stop, then tell someone. Or maybe report him. IDK. IDC.
@rendezvous Okay, so the first sentence of your post made me pretty pissed off. The second sentence made me feel a whole fricking buttload of pity for you. The third sentence made me reminiscent of when my parents tried to warn me about something I would do no matter what. The fourth sentence? I wanted to just walk away, but I can't. And the fifth sentence made me a little confused bc you really sound like a misunderstanding person but is trying to help out. And the last sentence I didn't even read because I was to busy getting over trying to get rid of the feeling of wanting to strangle you. Because you're just another voice that I talked about. And may I say, I wasn't trying to get sympathy. If there's only one fricking thing I can get across to you rn, it is I DON"T FLIPPING WANT SYMPATHY, LET ALONE YOURS!!! CAN I LAY YOU OFF PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEE???? BECAUSE ARE YOU SHITTING ME RIGHT NOW. Thank you for reading.
