Just be yourself, no one should ever judge you for being yourself. I am an obese person, but I am being myself, so no one should judge me because I am being myself. I am single, but I am being myself, so no one should judge me because I am being myself. I am awkward and have a bad appearance, but I am being myself, so no one should judge me because I am being myself. I do not want to wear a suit to my job as I am being myself, myself wants to just wear boxers and a shirt to the job. I am just being myself. People always tell me to just be myself and everything will be fine.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /adv/, 19 year old college drop out here. Diagnosed Bipolar. No money, moving with a big family to a small apartment somewhere in NY soon. Not a good situation.
Painting keeps me sane. Makes me feel okay. Keeps me away from drugs. Lets me escape. Thing is I need a place to live, food on the table. Can't hold a job, psychiatrists haven't been working with insurance company and pharmacy to help me get medication. They've prescribed it, then dodge each other during the bureaucratic process. I should have gotten Latuda weeks ago.
Anyway, currently in Northern NJ, no idea what I can do to sell my work. Tried Patreon, people only seem to be interested in stylized cartoons and quick gimmicks. Tried a local art show (there was one and it rarely happens) but it wasn't an actual art show, ended up being a family event kind of thing with a tiny wall of "art", would have been lucky to sell for $20.
What do I even do? I don't want or need emotional support from family (they wouldn't give it, father doesn't believe in mental illness, mother pretends to believe in it but cares more about social status and what people say), no friends, its just me.
Pic related, piece I finished yesterday. Am I just destined for an eventual suicide?
>>16466220 Talk with local galleries about having a show. Price things beforehand and stick with your prices. If you don't want to sell your art for 20$ when you have it priced for 100$ DONT. Dont undervalue your work because you think it wont sell.
My city has a "first friday" where galleries are open later to showcase local artists, I think most major cities have these. Google it and search for places local to you, go ask the business owners in person if you can have a showing on the next available slot.
I have had her as a friend since middle school, we are both 19. I trusted her allot, so I Admitted to her I am pedophile. I made sure she knew I never want to act upon my feelings but she's been weird now..she will tell me I should try it , and not care about what anyone says. When we are out in public and there s a little girl , she'll nudge me and say " she's got a nice ass huh?" Then other times she will text me stuff like " you are a sick piece of shit " or " you should be ashamed of yourself". We are best friends but shes making... Comment too long.

Well first of all, stop fucking off and do your schoolwork. there is absolutely no reason to have been failing one of three classes. None at all. I don't care what excuse you're going to try and throw back at me, you have unlimited resources at the university for assistance and unlimited study time, effectively.
The problem is that you don't care. You want it to be easy. You want to just show up to class and magically have learned and "advanced" yourself. You don't actually want to put in effort to accomplish these things, you just want... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Might help if you actually have a goal. Seriously, what do you want to do when you're done with school? Start there, work yourself up for a dream as of yet unrealized, motivate yourself, if you're not working out, start, get going, realize your dreams and accomplish them.
You only have one life to live, and it sounds to me like you don't want to waste it, so figure out what it is you really want and go for it.
>>16466074 >>16466074 your right i've fucked around for too long, even in high school. I needed a bitch slap from life to help me wake up. Now i learned the hard way. But still college jsut isnt meant for everybody, im 19 and if i can finish my degree in atleast 6 years ill do it, but i just dont know if its my calling. I am fucking disgusted with myself for having wasted this much time and effort, i am really depressed. But i know im capable and i am willing to change... Comment too long.

I'm so fed up with my girlfriend smoking, it makes my blood boil, especially at social events. Especially when she tells our daughter "Go be drug free", and I'm just like "Holy shit, are you serious right now?". What do I do, besides leaving, to make her stop? Give me something guys, anything. :/
my friends (we are all white) often make racist jokes. I know how shitty this sounds, but even though I laugh I'm not actually racist. I'm starting to believe that my friends actually are racist (they think black people are naturally more violent, Asians are naturally smart/rude etc) what should I do? should I just cut out the racist jokes? also. does making racist jokes automatically make you a shitty person, even if you don't believe in it?
>>16465979 >also. does making racist jokes automatically make you a shitty person, even if you don't believe in it? haha of course not. back in school we used to make all kinds of racist jokes and had big laughs ^^ it is just the idea of the joke thats funny. anyone frowning upon that is retarded
>they think black people are naturally more violent >asians are naturally smart/rude Sorry anon but these things are facts, black people ON AVERAGE are more violent and asians ON AVERAGE are more intelligent than whites for example.
No, making racist jokes does not automatically make you a shitty person, everyone is racist and if they say they aren't they're liars, full stop.
What should you do? If it's really a big issue stop hanging out with your friends.

I want to get him something that's under 20$ and that he can use. I was thinking of getting him a Dora tshit as its always been a joke between us but I doubt he'd ever wear it outside of home.
I'm going to visit a couple of thrift stores in my area to find something for him but I have no idea what to look for!
So what kind of gift could I get him that won't seem so big and pricey? Maybe a few shirts or some kind of figurine? He's into games and I don't think he'd accept... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Personally I think spending under $20 on your boyfriend's birthday is stingy as fuck, but to each their own. If you have issues with money, why not buy him a shirt he would wear for the practical side of the present, and then take him on a picnic with a big meal that you cooked or something. Another cheap but nice present is you could buy one of those albums that you can decorate the front of yourself, then fill it with photos of you two. You could also burn a CD of his favourite songs or put his favourite gaming tracks on there.
I need to talk about this and stop bottling it up so bear with me /adv/ I would normally lurk on /b/ but in my fragile state of mind I don't think posting there would be a good idea.
I'm a 30-year-old male and I'm fighting a bit of a downward spiral with depression. No one knows that I know of, every day I go out with the mask of 'everything is ok'. I've been like this for near enough my whole adult life, hiding it and just trying to get on with life. I go from being ok for a few months, sometimes longer then every now and then I go into...

I've made a conscious effort to try get out and about to meet people rather than just sitting alone but as I said before, I struggle to relate to people and I feel anxious and uncomfortable in pubs/bars/clubs/etc. Attempts at chatting to women get nowhere for the same reasons. Assuming I do manage to get talking, I just get brushed off. This is a bit of confidence kicker so I've tried online on the likes of POF, Match etc. This was even worse a decision as 99% of the time I just get ignored without so much as a sorry you aren't what I'm looking for. Hell, even those that clicked interested ignore me when I try speak to them. All that has happened is my confidence has been crushed leaving me wondering why I even bother.
Nobody knows, I hide the depression because I don't think people will understand or they will just pity me. I don't want pity. So here I am now; depressed and alone. Wondering how long I can keep this up.
>>16465754 >I just get ignored without so much as a sorry you aren't what I'm looking for.
Oh god... Yeah. I actually had a conversation with a woman about this sort of thing, being ignored, like I don't exist, I don't even rate a "fuck off". >Oh but it can be really awkward to say anything. :(
My girlfriend has been on the depo-provera shot for two years, no longer has periods, ect. We are sexually active and have been for about 4 months, and I know how effective depo is, but she gained a small amount of weight recently, and feels sick sometimes after eaten typically salty foods, has difficulty sleeping, but also stresses over really stupid stuff so it could be that. I've asked her a few times if we could pregnancy test as just a precaution, I'm busy but I would pay for her to get it, she finally agreed yesterday but then decided that she doesn't...

so sup /adv/ i used to be a chronic MJ smoker for a while but stopped about a year ago...decided to join the National Guard.....passed my urine test fine. got my job and had about six months before i get shipped to bootcamp. everything was fine and dandy until about a month before shipment day (i ship on tuesday) i decided to give myself a week of smoking as a farewell gift to myself because i was gonna let go of marijane forever. after a week of fun i baught myself a full body cleaner from passyourtest.com which stated it would take away any bad toxins within ten days (which i had more then enough time) i took the cleaner up until a few days ago...i took the test that came with it and i still came up positive so i gave it a few days while drinking lots of water and cranberry juice and eating healthy...i took another test and still dirty....im a bit worried so i researched as much as i could and found out milk thistle tablets help to flush thc out the body. i pretty much overdose on these pills in hope to clean myself out while drinking cranberry juice and lots of water. i tested myself again and its still coming out dirty..... i know im a idiot and i should get what i deserve but i honestly am doing this to change my life around and be a better person while feeling proud of what i represent...so please dont comment with mean comment i need some advice here because i have two days untill they will probably test me again before i go to bootcamp ( i baught a one day flush as my last resort) i really dont know what else to do but keep drinking water. i will try to take this one day flush at the correct time so that when i go to MEPS for the urine test it falls in the 7 hour window the flush is granting me.... does anybody have advice on how to rid these toxins out of my body for good so i can not worry and continue to better myself as a man because i honestly want out of this life style and become someone i could be proud of.
>>16465673 >if you were personally impacted, concentrate more on those affected and not on the perpetrators. Bullshit, join the french foreign legion; they're about to destroy those responsible for the mass murders. Those ISIS dogs won't stop until they're put down.
If I was personally impacted by those extremist thugs, nothing would stop me from getting my revenge.
