crush advice?

details 💬︎ reply 💎︎

i think this dude has a crush on me idk. he was pretty rude/not nice to generally everybody last year but this year hes really nice to me and i think everyone. he didnt even know me last year since we had a class tg. i dont i cared ab him either. but i sit close to him in class and when i get called on he wispers answers to me. but then again he also did that for someone else. hes in another class of mine and helped me with homework and is pretty nice to me all that time. he taps me on the back sometimes to annoy me i guess and he says hi to me in the hallways. idk if he likes me or is nice to me like he might be towards anyone else.

need guidance and encouragement going back to work

details 💬︎ reply 💎︎

today i went on indeed in looking for jobs all in medical field between medical file records clerk,office assistant and administrative assistant, my mom too is retired but is looking to go back to work because she can’t sit in the house ever since my dad unexpectedly passed on it has really made us too comfortable and it’s time for me especially to get back out there and get my feet wet, while i was searching my mom brought up another question that caught me off guard in asking me is there another avenue you want to pursue outside of the medical field. i was honest with her and told her i wanna pursue communications like advertising,billboards,magazine print something in that category that i will take pride in doing, she said to me i’m not trying to be brutal but i’m telling you this because you gotta understand what’s expected. i have an associates degree in communications from county college, she even asked me did you ever have counselor/advisor to help you look for job before graduation which is something i regret not being more active in going to my advisor/counselor more often like i should had i gone for more help in searching for advertising jobs i would already be working either big or small companies, surprisingly my mom is in the same situation as me when she graduated she already thought her advisor would start reaching out to her but instead of helping her it just left in the dust where she had to go out on her own to look for a job which is something that i need to do little scared to get back out there i just need advice and encouragement to give me confidence and strength to know i gotta push through this it’s not easy

people on here

details 💬︎ reply 💎︎

y'all are the best. you might not know how you might have saved someone or made someone's day by just being there to listen. even though you might not get appreciated in real life just know you are rare and the world needs more people like you. especially in this day and age where it is hard to find genuine people and have meaningful conversations. i appreciate every single person who took their time to listen to my problems, and everyone else too. have a good day and life ahead

sometimes they have to see it and understand for themselves

details 💬︎ reply 💎︎

i had to let my pushy mom know about the same guy you kept desperately trying to force me to go out with, come to find out he had been in another relationship with somebody else the whole time, with that i also didn’t find him to be a gentleman at all, asking questions to me that i thought were inappropriate i explain to my mom about it her respond was he’s the funniest guy of all he was just joking i told her i don’t care, she’s mad at me because she knew about what he was doing in regards of running into him at the mall with this new girl who he’s been messing with. i didn’t care if she was big mad she should’ve been considerate of my feelings of how i felt about this guy but she didn’t care so she had to see it for herself

we are better together

details 💬︎ reply 💎︎

i believe if we would take one single step together, truly living as we are better together, being mindful of others, confirming that hey, it's okay, we got you, we are here to care for each other. each one, teach one, you are loved as you more than you know, this is what we need to move forward to stop all the fear which can turn to violence between each other.

i'm so embarrassed. also i think i might be lactose intolerant?

details 💬︎ reply 💎︎

so i just started this training course a few days ago for a job position with a few others. very quiet people but nice overall. today we finished up our morning session and it was time for a short lunch break, which i spent drinking a very nice cappuccino in a nearby cafe. i went back to the class and we resumed our work quietly. but it wasn't long before my stomach started growling and making the weirdest noises ever fml. and it was so loud!! :( i should also mention that i sit next to a guy who most likely heard every noise my stomach was making, because he snickered a few times when it was happening. at one point i excused myself to use the bathroom and thought it's just trapped gas but it didnt help much! my stomach just kept singing the song of its people when i went back and im so mortified. im pretty sure the other people in class heard it too as they kept glancing my way. im just having a mini break down over this knowing i have to go back tomorrow morning and see them all again :( also it didnt ever occur to me that i might be lactose intolerant as most dairy products i've consumed before dont have this effect on me. except for creamy cakes. and cappuccino i guess. not sure how to face them tomorrow ugh

difficult day

details 💬︎ reply 💎︎

yesterday was a bit of tough day it was first year of my dad’s passing it still feels difficult to understand that’s he’s no longer alive. i miss him so much not having my dad in my life anymore is emotional pain to deal with. i remember my mom telling of what he told her stating don’t let me be a burden on my family and she would say to him you are not a burden, but he always felt he was which he wasn’t, considering the reality that he was sick. but i will always and forever be thankful for spending time with my dad it just hurts that he’s gone

how do i start over?

details 💬︎ reply 💎︎

i am over 30, single and unemployed. been taking care of my mom for years, she is bed ridden and need help with almost everything. i have been neglecting my needs and future for my mom. i no longer have friends, romantic relationship and i used up all my savings while being unemployed. i dont regret anything because i do it cause i love her. lately, i noticed that i no longer have patience or energy to care for her. sometime i dont even have any sympathy let alone empathy to her pain and struggle. i stopped exercising and stop doing chores around the house. i suddenly feel useless and helpless. i had a bachelors degree and a career prior to taking care of mom. i know i need to start working again because i had no savings left nor spouse to take care of me. i have been looking at job vacancies online. everytime i try to apply for jobs, i get very anxious. im an introvert to begin with, with years of rarely going out and meet people im extremely scared and nervous to go for jobs interviews. im feeling too old and too out of touch. help, i dont know how to start over. im petrified
