My brother just came home and seemed so offended that I was standing in the kitchen with my mom having a snack. Then he starts to talk to her and completely ignores me. So I just walked away. It always happens and makes me feel like crap.

I don't belong anywhere. Why TF am I even here. Again with the mental pressure, I am simply incapable of making my own decisions without there being severe repercussions. According to those around me, I need someone to run my life for me because that's all I've ever been told.

My own family has brought me down my whole life telling me I just can't do the things that I want to. All my life I just wanted one thing that was mine. It's like a collective consciousness in this place, everything must be known and shared and raided and I have to give everything I have. Lesson learned, I am a hopeless child who must always put others first. I am nothing.

Nope. F**k them. Whatever decision you've made, if it is your decision, it's the right one. You are not nothing.

Meanwhile, in r/ForeverAlone (AKA, the sub for people with supposedly the lowest/no standards--"If she has a pulse, I'll date her!")...









1. Why you complaining, then? Jeez. Would think he'd be relieved not to have to deal with disgusting whales.

2. Just like your lovely thread showed us super ugly fat b****es our place on this Earth. Great feeling, isn't it?

3. You might think that attitude of horrendous disgust toward certain members of the opposite sex doesn't show IRL, but trust me, unless you're some kind of super-skilled social chameleon (and obviously, most users in this sub are not), it shows. It's like a cigarette stink you can't get out of your clothes. You can't smell it because you're so used to it, but others can catch a whiff here and there. You just assume they're reacting to your self-perceived ugliness...

4. If I see the phrase "just world fallacy" one more time, I'm going to puke. Unfortunately, the male mod there tosses it out like every other comment. It and that stupid 20/80 or 80/20 rule or whatever the hell it is account for like 80% of the "logic" there.


I can imagine what the upvote/downvote ratio and comments would be like if someone of a different gender (say...me) had posted that last comment...the whole thread would have been locked or deleted by now. (Ostensibly because, according to the male mod, "This type of thread will just attract brigades from r/AskReddit, so I better remove it for our own safety." When there is exactly zero evidence of such things ever happening, and the only "brigading" is from hateful members of r/ForeverAlone...whose own comments are often left standing when such threads are removed/locked.)


EDIT:



Yep...cheerful joking definitely would NOT have been the reaction if, say, I had made that comment, instead of OP.

Male mod has since replied to the thread. Only one comment (the original "super ugly fat b****es" one) has been removed. Didn't even remove OP's second reference to "super ugly fat b****es." And of course, male mod had no problem with the thread itself. Or with the OP's hypocrisy, which, if I had started the thread, would've earned me the label of "not a true FA!"


EDIT:



That first comment breaks the sub rule against inflammatory comments that generalize any group of people, including the genders. Male mod doesn't mind. He also doesn't mind "jokingly" parroting hated memes which are also against sub rules. (Interestingly...male-oriented advice such as "Just shower," "Just get your hair cut," and "Just work out" is expressly criticized/forbidden in a rules thread and any time a "normie" "brigades" the sub to say it...while female-oriented advice such as "Just lose weight," "Just wear makeup," and "Just get on Tinder" is not forbidden, and is widely accepted.)

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

Even though I was supposed to be improving, I'm only feeling increasingly dysfunctional as a human now. It is like a big black void that is pulling me into complete misery, no matter what I do. As Osamu Dazai would have put it, I feel "disqualified as human"...

Ever since I started taking my first steps into the working world, I've seen even more just how eager others are to take advantage of someone and how I am immediately seen as the perfect target. My parents ended up getting a W-2 form for me in the mail from the Subway I only worked two days in (before I got fired) and I never even got a paycheck from that place.

I seem to already be turning into a buttmonkey for my current boss, getting forced by him to leave when it gets slow even though I know it is in my right to stay. He also still hasn't given me my paycheck, so I don't know if him forgetting it will be a consistent thing, but probably since I can't stand up for myself worth ****. Because I am that passive, I keep thinking it will turn into an extremity such as "I'm going to end up working there for 3+ months and not having gotten a single paycheck...I'll end up working for free." It's painful having the backspine of a sludge.

Last night it felt like my coworkers were being very demeaning, one of them telling me "I'm going to teach you how to clean.", and repeating "Clean it like you would your house." even though pretty much all I do is wipe the same counters over and over when it gets slow and there is nothing else to do, like restocking. They made me clock back in after I said I was leaving, in order to keep cleaning, even though I knew it was in my right to say no and still go home. It seems they just didn't want the manager getting mad at them for it, but I was trying to clean after myself even before they were saying anything, and they weren't helping out with much of anything. I didn't have that much time to while still trying to focus on preparing drinks and bagging the food. I really am going to keep being used and stepped over increasingly badly from now on, huh...

This night shift is awful and I absolutely hate it, but I may not have any choice but to be completely switched over to it due to it being more convenient when I start school. (And being able to be dropped off and picked up more by my family) It's a shame, because I will only get one hour of work with my friend, with these hours, and he and some of my other coworkers are the only ones that made this job any bearable, I was really starting to warm up to them..



"So many resources keep me alive
Yet I don't even step outside
So many sacrifices keep me alive
Yet I don't even bother to survive."



"If you think we waste too much then you can sacrifice yourself
Don't push your values
Push your values
Onto the crowd."
