Ever go on facebook and see someone's post, and other people on your friends list have liked the post... and you think.... how the hell do THEY know each other? One was my supervisor at a factory where I worked 15 years ago, and the other is a guy I went to high school with 20 years ago.... in a different town! *ponders*

In response to a confession. Oh, ffs. We're not talking about a trendy set of shoes. This is about human behavior. Sexual norms (a.k.a. trends) change with society, and yes, they do include homosexuality. Legalization of homosexuality is just one way in which norms shift with society. It's about a spectrum of behaviors. I don't make the rules. Blame the sociologists who came up with this stuff. I understand that we live in an age when people get offended by everything, but at least try to understand the conversation before lashing out.

In response to a confession. You're right that some people feel that no one cares. Also, on the flip side, they know they have loving family and friends, but feel that everyone would be better off without them. What really makes me mad is when people call those who are suicidal selfish (not that you said that, at all). Taking your own life isn't selfish. It means they can't fight the battle anymore. Life is hard. A little compassion from everyone would make the world a better place.

Tired of women who want sympathy by playing the "I'm a single mom" card. The whole world should feel sorry for you because of that. I don't think so.

In response to a confession. I'm likening your post to the "problematic" trend. You *think* someone is being offensive, but instead of doing a little research into the topic, you freak out and jump up on a soapbox. 2018...what a time to be alive.

I had a friend suffering from bipolar who used to call repeatedly with emergencies, needing to talk for hours at a time. I finally set boundaries with her, saying I could only talk during certain hours. She'd also talk about feeling suicidal and would want me to drive to her house and sit with her. I finally had to set a boundary there too. I told her if she spoke of feeling suicidal I would call 911 and send them to her house. She stopped speaking to me after that. I do wonder what happened to her at times but on the other hand, feeling like you are being 'held hostage' by a mentally ill person is very real. You need to be firm but loving and some people see that as 'not caring'.

I think my coworker saw my naughty Gchat with coworker. I left briefly but accidentally left the window open on my screen and she was near my desk shredding papers when I came back. I caught her staring intently my laptop. I knew hooking up with him was a BAD f*ckin idea. FML!

In response to a confession. I think people do care, but what can they do? I have been the one to drop everything for someone's crisis, repeatedly. Only to have them refuse the help, not want to go to the hospital, not want to do anything to help themselves or take the help that is offered. After this happens a few times, yeah it gets hard to give a shit because you know you are being held hostage by the person and their threats.

I can’t say this IRL, but I’m convinced that many people who kill themselves do so partially because other people don’t really give a shit. I mean it. If you told 2 people in your life that you were going to end it, would they really drop everything and attend to your crisis? If they would, consider yourself lucky. You have friends. People who end it all don’t have anyone who would give a shit.

An old HS friend has been posting incessantly about how she's going back to college, how hard it is, etc., etc. (We're in our 40s). I think going back to college is awesome. And, yes, it IS hard. But my problem is that it's an online, for-profit "college." I feel bad that she's wasting so much time and money on a degree that isn't going to be worth shit.
