Not sure if right thread, but its more "you're naive" than "you piss me off."

I love my boyfriend, but sometimes he off-handedly mentions that since I have a degree now it'd be nice if I got a good paying job to support both of us and he can be a house husband.


Like, in this economy? I don't know if I can land a well paying career for several years, and the career I truly want requires a masters degree. It ain't that easy, especially since my degree isn't in high demand unfortunately. Also I do most of the house chores and all the cooking (I enjoy cooking usually, but some nights it's exhausting) so unless he plans to start doing a lot more of that...

I just grew up with both parents working and still had many periods of time where finances were tight. Sure, they had a house and kids and credit card bills but it still took two of them. So if he were being entirely serious I'd slap him in the face with reality. But for now I just tell him that it's silly.

Not for nothing but honesty can go a long way in a relationship, and it doesn’t need to be the brutal flavor. A little bit of realism tends to be called for especially when the world can’t decide whether or not it wants to burn down.

Your boyfriend sounds like he has his heart in the right place and that can go a long way if they’re clued in.

You didn’t ask for advice. Naïveté can be easier to fix than pig-headedness. I hope you two make it.

Yeah, I try to be honest with him if I can. Basically explaining my aforementioned points. We're lucky that we live with a relative for now, but one day I want my own place (as impossible as that is financially atm). Maybe if I end up miraculously making 7 figures I'd be down for that. For now I'll focus on saving up money and trying to plan for a future that may or not end in fire like you say.

I have a friend in my circle that bugs the shit our of me. She either talks in a grumpy/judgmental tone, or at other times is loud, childish and obnoxious. I've had other friends tell me "that's just how she is". But it makes me not want to interact with her or do things with other friends when she's going to be there.

I never act like a prick or tell her to shut up. Sometimes when she comments on what I said in said "bitchy" tone of voice and it ticks me off, I just quietly leave the room to get some space. But it feels like my other friends don't like when I do that and always ask "why are you angry? She thinks you're mad at her." I kind of am, but it's more complicated than that. They never ask if I'm alright. Do I just have to deal with her, or end up the bad guy for wanting to not be around people who make me feel like shit? I don't know anymore.

Realistically speaking I'm feeling revolution. Our society has always had a stable sense of morals due to Monogamy. But america right now seems to be a 21st century Version of the Weimar republic right now. You have political violence being normalized on the and right due to tit for tat escalation. You have a Hyper atomized culture in where no one feels like they're part of something bigger. The LGBTQ agenda is being shoved down the throats of Americans by bitter angry spiteful mutants who happen to be mostly gay and Jewish and have some hatred of non Jews because they're taught goyim are lower then them. Now add the fact that we have sinister things like only fans which is convincing women that degrading is sexually liberating. The toll is going to come up a bunch of angry millenials will hit their 30s and 40s and realize that they have nothing really to lose as they're priced out of the dating, job, and family market you're going to see the revolution kick in. The question is what will be the spark? Will it be a constitutional crisis? America being humiliated like in Afghanistan again? Perhaps something stupid and silly like a song or prank gone wrong?

All I know is alot of people have nothing left to lose. Last time I checked when those people feel like they're not part of society that's when the danger begins.
Problem is that you’re relying on the most thoroughly anti-nationalistic, pro-globalist, pro-capitalist, pro-authoritarian generation in US history to stop buying funko pops and virtue signalling on Facebook and take up the struggle for freedom.
At this stage I really don’t see how this gets fixed without the complete collapse of society and a return to lex talionis while a new society emerges.

Realistically speaking I'm picturing something akin to the break-up of the USSR 2.0 within the united States in the next decade or so. Some of those border and water disputes might be handled more with bombs vs lawyers instead. The problem is for every Funko pop buying, virtue signaling moron on Facebook, perfect example of the liberal hypocrisy amplified to 10,000x if the definition between right wing and left wing is gay rights vs trans rights your entire political system is flat out ignoring traditionalists, reactionaries, and people of the rural mindset. There is a very dangerous looming political power vacum. Funko pops and free porn not withstanding we're not immune from the Kali Yuga cycle of hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, and weak men create hard times. Right now we're in the weak men phase of society. We're going to see hard times as the boomers die off. Buckle up my friend it's going to be a bumpy ride.

It seems the older I get, the less of a shit I give about meeting new people or making new friends. Just leave me alone. I can’t really seem to make a connection with anyone anymore beyond just acquaintances, exchange a few basic pleasantries and I’m mostly happy with that.

problem is we’re all social creatures. I do like socializing with others (I have friends I hang out with and I post here) but my friends are people I’ve known for decades and I can just come and go as I please here with no bullshit. It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately; why I feel a need to be social and at the same time barely give enough of a shit to do so outside of my small circle of friends and an anonymous internet forum

Like I said before, I don't like how the modern world is so excessively conformist that it seems any deviation - or any criticism of "society" - can be seen as "cringe". It's like the elementary school attitude of "if it's different it's wrong" on a societal level. People seem so bland these days. And yet when they are noticeably different, it seems they're "naturally" so in a freakish "lolcow" way.

This may sound "doomer" or "cringe", but Homo sapiens are a very flawed design, which is why Earth sucks.

But also like I said, at least not everything and everyone of this world is bad.

(that should be enough of that for now)

i wanted to use this as a jumping off point to talk about things which bring clarity and reduce the creeping sensation of going off the deep end but it was cringe in a very visceral way so I’ll just say that as soon as you stop caring what people you have never met will think about you you become unchained and invulnerable to a surprising degree

thousands of years of society and mankind still doesn’t know what to do with a person who can say “you are a stranger so I don’t care what you think about me”

also if you are struggling with being able to step outside yourself and you’ve tried every method legally available to you I strongly suggest experimenting with drugs

One time I did a high dose of psychedelic mushrooms right after I had come off a bad case of alcohol withdrawal. I'd done shrooms plenty in the past, but never while my head was recoiling from alcohol withdrawal.

If you don't know, alcohol withdrawal fucks your head big time, and it can take weeks or months to get back to normal.

My trip seemed OK, usual kind of stuff where you're like "Oh! I see now! Wow, the veil has been pulled back and now I see how things really are!" This time though, I also had thoughts of "I'm imprisoned into this flesh sack. I'll never be able to go back to normal now. They're going to have to put me in an asylum. I should use my handgun to end it as soon as I come down and just end it."

It's really hard to put a pin on how deep these thoughts felt at the time.

Fortunately, I was with a friend and we were able to talk things out. He actually was feeling similar things but for different reasons. Looking back now, it seems like fate or some shit that we'd both have that experience and be there together to sort out our thoughts.
im on enough suboxone to kill a man so i understand this sentiment exactly, albeit with a different substance

It kills me every day knowing I was closer to The Answer when I was fourteen than I am now. Closer then with no means to pursue it. Now I have the means but no time and no drive.

Quite often I think about dying and I think this is the reason.
Isnt The Answer 42?

The idea that I am not living to my greatest potential due to unshakable habits that have existed all my life and will most likely continue decades from now, and that the prime of my life will be wasted on stupid shit instead of fulfilling my goals while I still can. Sometimes when I get in a particularly shitty mood, I think that it's already too late for me to start a family, because I should have done more networking in high school and build up my confidence with speaking to people, which is a skill needed to meet people and have a relationship with them, in which to meet someone that I would want to marry would need several years of dating and experimenting with different people to find one that I liked personally and wouldn't treat me like trash due to one or two secret "quirks" on their end, and all that just takes up so much time that I might not have. I think that if it ever get's to the point that I'm almost 40 and I didn't accomplish much with my life by then that I'd just pull the trigger.

I get such a dreadful feeling thinking about it, but it just comes out of nowhere sometimes and I can't shake it fast enough.

Closer to what makes me happy. I haven’t been happy for over twenty years and I’ve forgotten what it’s like.

The fact is that I’m already afraid, and I’m already crazy. If I could turn an idea into something real one more time, just like I did when I was younger, then the rest of the time I spent decaying would be worthwhile and someone could feed me a bullet while I was stopped at a red light tomorrow and I’d go happily.

I recognize the feeling. Have kids if you can, it really helps.

So, what project have you started in the meantime? Me? I'm building a watch.

If I had kids I would kill myself. If I had kids because of any internal reason other than “I want kids” I would find some way to kill myself in a fashion so spectacular they’d name it after me.

“Did you hear about Bob?”

“No, what happened?”

“He [Pargon]’d himself. Left a crater sixty feet wide.”

Awesome. So what are you creating?
