what to expect
09 June, 2021
⚓︎ it really is, after such a long time. if you have access to a vaccine, maybe that can help ease your mind. but for the time being, i think a lot of people will still wear masks because they are also worried about catching the illness. i suppose it's inevitable - because generally, society isn't accustomed to wearing masks. however, i think you could still wear a mask if you're worried, it's a perfectly legitimate worry considering all the awful stories about the virus. best wishes to you!

i'm struggling & i'm happy we exist;

⚓︎ thank you for your support of others :) i am far removed from your situation, but it is sorrowful what your family has put you through. we wish that the people who are part of our family should care about us, yet such a thing is not always true. i'm truly glad you have those friends you spoke of. wishing you the best! ʕっ• ᴥ • ʔっ

⚓︎ haha, i felt exactly the same! when that type of glitch happens to me, i usually type into the chat that i'll go back to the main room because i can't see the chats (though i have no idea if the other person can see the message), then re-enter as a listener. hope that helps for future reference!

⚓︎ hello! it is indeed heartening to see this happening :) i hope you're doing well as well!

what is the point of relationships
18 May, 2021
⚓︎ well said. i think you captured the essence of the question much better than i did :)

⚓︎ my perspective is that it's sort of the same reason one might have a dog - it's for the companionship. one does it to bounce ideas off each other, to share and encourage each others' passions, for having someone to lean on when times get rough, for the moments of laughter, etc. - for the things a close companion can provide. what are your thoughts?

⚓︎ ah, i think i may have created a misunderstanding. do you mean you'll create a weekly form? i currently have an online form set up to link with a spreadsheet, and i was wondering if posting that form weekly would clutter the insights page too much. by the way, thank you for providing this site. none of it would be possible without your contributions :)

⚓︎ haha, thanks! what are your thoughts on a weekly form for listeners/talkers? my main concern is that it might clutter up the site

⚓︎ noted, thank you! i'm also thinking about sending out a weekly form for better coordination :)

⚓︎ hey there, and welcome! i've also recently found this site and have been talking to people on and off. and also, thank you so much, you have no idea how motivating your post was... i will do my best to make myself available every evening (est) as well :)

⚓︎ no problem, i'm really glad to hear it helped! i usually check in to mellowtalk at around 12 to 1 am utc, but if that doesn't work, we can find another time :) sending you an internet hug in the meantime! ʕっ• ᴥ • ʔっ

⚓︎ just wanted to add - based on the insights, it seems there are still a decent amount of people trickling in, and there are also people who want to help - but conversations rarely happen because two people have to be on at exactly the same time.

went too far

⚓︎ outbursts of anger are usually never spontaneous - they get built up, over time, resulting in resentful feelings. so it sounds like she's been making these comments for a while now. to add on to delightful polished sheep's comment, i think you should either talk to her or talk to your father about this. it won't do anyone's mental health or relationship any good if these comments continue.

⚓︎ it's hard to say without a live conversation, but i think you're scared to change because you're scared *of* change. what you have now is familiar and thus comfortable, at least to some degree. would it maybe help to talk to other people? there's a site called wusoup, which you can use to chat with random people. being depressed isn't being rubbish. it's the result of being over-stressed for an extended period of time, or a defense mechanism to ease painful feelings. just because you have a history of depression, anxiety, and avoidance, doesn't mean that that is your fate. question: what do you think it would take to start helping yourself? whenever you hear that voice telling you to escape to your room, to comfort, ask it: when will you start to change? i'll be silently cheering for you! i hope this helps, let me know if you want to talk :)

⚓︎ hey there! thank you for posting this, the site does indeed feel a bit quiet :) here's an internet hug to reciprocate: ʕっ• ᴥ • ʔっ

how miserable is it to have no one to console you except yourself?
27 March, 2021
⚓︎ for me, it's sometimes frustrating, but mostly bearable. what helps in my case is envisioning a wise woman called "logic", distinct from me and my emotions, whose goal is to comfort me and provide guidance.
