    [–] Some people really don't understand . neverthelessthan 7 points ago in exjw

    This really hits home for me, I have had a couple friendships after I left, but because of the emotional distance I put between myself and them, things faded. I have received feedback from job interviews where i didnt get an offer because "they couldn't read me" or felt I was "insincere"

    I am fortunate to have found my best friend and partner, but even he gets frustrated at my lack of willingness to open up and let go. And my family is still in it, so I am in constant fear that they will cut off contact AGAIN if I offend them in any sort of way.

    The only thing that seemed to help was the time I spent doing theater, exploring the emotional depths of characters, and being forced to work closely with others to achieve a moving experience. Unfortunately, it really doesn't pay and now I work too much to continue auditioning.

    Overall, it really sucks.

    [–] Just once, I would love to see a pregnancy test commercial featuring a woman alone, in her micro studio apartment, crying with joy to get a negative. neverthelessthan 9 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I will never discount women and couples wanting to be pregnant... it's rough. Hellish even. But a lot of people want to be represented, and it's a poor marketing strategy to only zero in on one demogaphic.

    [–] WTH Am I Looking At Here? 🤔 neverthelessthan 1 points ago in awfuleverything

    Bartended the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival a few years ago, this is by far the least shocking thing I've seen....

    [–] People who can fall asleep within 5 minutes of going to bed, how the fuck do you do it? neverthelessthan 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Former insomniac here. I never watch tv or use my phone in bed. A little cbd an hour prior then reading till my eyes start to droop. Bam, sleep.

    [–] What’s something that you like, but hate the fan base? neverthelessthan 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Disney. I am a sucker for the nostalgia and agree that they put out some quality shit, but the people whose whole identity revolves around it (also the types to move to CA to be close to disneyland) and personality seems to be entirely defined by "living the magic" drive me out of my mind.

    [–] Currently in a toxic work environment, looking for a new job, should I give notice? neverthelessthan 1 points ago in Advice

    Yes, in USA. Thanks for a a unethical leave the job tip. I am on the verge of losing my shit on the boss, trying to avoid that.
