I'm currently watching K-ON! Which is great fun. I think if I'd had a teacher like that and an after school club where I could drink tea and eat cake I just might have enjoyed school a bit more.
K-On is such an adorable show, glad you had fun with it.
Apple slices and strawberry milk.

It sounds like a test of your strength that you passed with flying colors. Not a test I'd ever purposely give to someone but hey... results I guess? It really hurts when people start questioning who you are at your core when a relationship is at the heart of it, it feels like so much is on the line and the stress can feel towering.
I'm glad you're on the other side of your struggle, it's good to remember how things like this don't last forever and they're just a time in your life.
You really think so? Thanks for drawing the comparison to something like strength. Kind of sucks to cut free from toxic environments and feel like your 110%, 120%, 130%- etc. will never be enough for some people.
Best advice I've ever read was "Those who get upset with you for setting boundaries are those who benefitted from you not having any." I think I used to let others hold kindness hostage for a bit. Eh, live and learn.
Glad you're back on AF by the way. Hope you have a great time here.
Glad to see all the new artists on the forum!

Yep, that right there is something I've struggled with for most of my life now. Friends or relationships, I've had issues with both where I'm often made to feel the desparate one that always has to reach out. Frankly I'm tired of that dynamic. Luckily I have friendships that dont always go that way, but when I meet new people and almost immediately get made to feel like I care way more than they do... really fucks with my head.
I'd like to feel a bit more appreciated, that's all. I'm glad you can relate... except the fact you can relate means you had to deal with a lot of hurt yourself so maybe it's not such good news
Kind of grateful that that hasn't been the case for a couple of years now but yeah, it's definitely made me cautious of new acquaintances and potential friendships. Better safe than sorry I guess.
Yeah, I learned not to make excuses or compromise beyond my capabilities.
I think being guilt-ed into doubt was my biggest hurdle out of this mentality. Naturally when you want to separate yourself from stressful situations it can be seen as running away or not putting up a fight for someone you care about. I had some people try to push guilt my way over wanting healthier connections and friendships. It was nice to break out of that cycle and learn a lot from the process.

What is the most ridiculous nightmare you have ever had?
Tell us an embarrassing story.
Explain an inside joke you have with a friend or family member. If
your pet could talk, what do you think they might say about you?
Tell me your life story in exactly one sentence.
What is the strangest coincidence that ever happened to you?
What is your favorite random fact? What is your useless talent?
What is the strangest food combination you enjoy?
What would your drag queen name be?
If you could choose one superpower, what would it be?

I like how this topic is tagged under comedy, haha.
A1: Can't recall but I think it involved my mother being a highly venomous spider.
A2: Come on, you know this question causes temporary amnesia.
A3: You wouldn't get it even if I did.
A4: "I'm 50 years old , stop calling me your 'baby'."
A5: "Started from the bottom, now I'm here."
A6: My sibling and I are not twins. In fact, there's a six year age different between us. However, we've been mistaken for the other and often finish each others sentences.
A7: Random fact- "The Mona Lisa has her own mailbox in the Louvre because of all the love letters she receives." Useless talent- A good memory but it's more of an issue than worth having.
A8: Grilled squid, ketchup and black coffee.
A9: Miss Cowgirl Kathy? Should I bring the lasso on stage?
A10: To be fucking useful, probably.
A 11: I wash the soap out of my eyes at record speed. That way the shower demon doesn't sneak up on me.
Hey, I remember you!
What an unfortunate way to get reacquainted with someone and what they've been up to.On 3/31/2022 at 11:57 PM, AlwaysSearching said:
But I learned a lot about love and myself from the experience. I'm trying to re-educate myself on self-respect for starters, and I learned that the types of people I can feel love for are far more varied than I had thought!
I'm glad you came out the other side learning more about yourself and various other types of relationships. At least there was something you could take away from this in the end.On 4/1/2022 at 9:28 AM, AlwaysSearching said:
its the wasted time and connections I could have formed with other people that I'll struggle to get over
A sentiment I can't agree more with. Not particularly over a partner (my ex was a wonderful companion), overall with general relationships. I feel like I gave a lot of my time and energy to people that hardly ever appreciated it in the past. Breaking away from those kinds of bad habits is absolutely liberating.
It's going to take me forever to virtually do anything in Elden Ring, so I've mostly opted for Gran Turismo 7 instead. Great game but a little disappointed with the online features and the credit fix after the first update.
What anime are you watching now?
in Anime Discussion
It is indeed. Kaoru and Reki are my favorite characters on the anime. I haven't really kept up on it but I hope there's a second season. No biggie on the quote mishaps, it happens!
