Been unemployed for a month now, and feel worthless at times. It can be hard to live in the past for me, something I need to improve.. If i wasn’t chronically injured I’d be utilizing the gym most likely, my favourite “nothing zone” as I like to call it. Every guy needs one where they can escape to once in a while. For some it’s working on cars, playing the piano, walking the dog etc. I just feel like I need to find my niche in life which is hard when I feel so physically limited.. I was never very artistic besides cooking I guess, which is an art and a science in itself.. I tried going go to an online chatroom but it was filled with ENTP types.. One of them was constantly inferring that I was bi-sexual and somehow managed to call me homophobic .. Too many faux mind readers out there who will argue just to argue.. Anyways it gets lonely at times and for such an introverted person, I don’t know where to start about getting into a relationship. I try to see people for people and not objects, but with the average being, it’s like conversation is so forced and boring. That is partly my fault for not learning the art of small-talk.. Like in the past I would ask questions about their school-life or something for example, and felt like i was being too intrusive. We live in a society people are so guarded and no one can say what they truly feel, but are so quick to go behind each others back..hmm...I guess that seeing the big picture is a hard thing to do, which is a shame because our time on earth is very limited.. At least learning that there are some cool/engaging people on here gives me hope in finding a circle some day.

I need to get some papers shredded, but that requires driving about 10 miles before noon, and I just don't feel like it. Maybe I'll wait until there's free shredding at my credit union, although I don't know when that might be.

Nobody loves me but my dog, and I think he might be jivin', too.

Feeling nervous trying to schedule a new volunteer interview for Monday at a thrift store. Let's see how this goes.

My job really sucks right now, so hard for me to care about my work. Really tired of the non-stop gloominess both inside the office and outside...cloudy, rainy and cool is almost a daily thing now.

When everything sucks and nothing matters and you’re miserable and you fail at what you’re trying to do and you can’t have what you want and you’re surrounded by people who don’t agree with you and you’re single and you’re not getting better and ssris don’t work and therapy is a scam and you’re scared of people and you try to be normal but you’re not and everyone else is normal and you feel like crap and you’re getting worse or at least staying the same and you don’t connect with anyone and you feel like **** and you want to end it but not really because you still have some hope but sometimes it feels like nothing is good and you’re miserable and you’re alone because you can’t bond with people and you never fit in and you’re ugly and you’re trapped like this and it’s going to be like this forever and you don’t know what to do and you’re cowardly so you don’t change and every day is the same and you’re smart but not as smart as other people and you envy everyone and no one agrees with you politically and you’re alone and you don’t have a boyfriend and you’re incompetent.

My brief window of hope and positivity has closed...back to feeling bleak, anxious and without hope. I am letting things in the news get to me again...thought I was over that.

JOBS


I don't understand what I'm doing. I wish I could understand people's intentions better. I try so hard to fulfill the immediate needs ad-hoc and forgot to think. So lame.

Though I have always made it my practice to be pleasant to everybody, I have not once actually experienced friendship. I have only the most painful recollections of my various acquaintances ..."

I've been going back and forth wondering if I should have reached out or maybe my rejection had something to do with it and guilttripping myself for avoiding you since then... but I have to respect your autonomy whether or not I agree with your decision. That's what you chose to do and I have to respect that. I really wish it went any other way but I can't regret a decision that someone else made. I could torture myself about the (probably tiny) part I played in your life but it's illogical to make assumptions based on little to no evidence.

I don't believe in an afterlife or anything so I'm not going to pretend this is anything but me talking to a figment of my imagination. But yeah this sucks. I'm sorry.

I mean it doesn't really matter who I vote for does it? I can't even be bothered to investigate further. My life is going to be **** no matter what sooo.


Also... Other stuff bothering me that I guess I won't talk about...

Telling someone they are wrong to feel the way they do is really just another way of telling them you don't care about their feelings. Unsurprisingly, this often results in them not caring about your feelings, either.

Similarly, lying to them and telling them you understand their feelings and then making it obvious that you do not in the next sentence isn't exactly going to make them trust you. Lying is not a big trust builder. Or I should say that getting caught lying is the opposite of building trust.

------------

In case of emergency, my husk can be used as a flotation device.
