I find this relatable today. Encountered something that felt unfair and makes me wonder if I’ll ever be on the good side of luck. In this moment it feels like I’ve demonstrated great effort and it’s not being fully appreciated, which feels like being stuck.

Yup and sadly still is. I can’t really recall my last time being happy. I really wanna move on. I promised myself that I will get a counselor this summer though.

Yes, I have felt this way since my daughter was born last year. I love her and don’t ever regret having her. I just feel like I’ve been in a self pilot and can’t seem to do anything right. My work has suffered and I really don’t care about my job. My marriage just seems like we go through the motions, but I’ve felt more lonely than anything else. I just feel as though I go through the motions of each day and just want to have a few days of relaxing and me time, but I don’t think that will happen anytime soon. I just think covid has made it worse and my anxiety is at all time high because of it

Okay everyone, I need to rant here. I'm so sick and tired of getting an email everyday! And I mean every single day getting a COVID 19 email saying there are cases. My school gets so many cases, I firmly believe we need to go back on lock down and online. This is getting ridiculous that we put state funding over the well being of our students and staff!! I dont want to get sick nor get covid or spread it to our students. And our job wonders why no one wants to work for us and stay working.

I am an idiot and you can tell me that. But I need advice to help the problem I caused. My husband isn't talking to his brother, or is at least avoiding him, because his brother has been treating his mom horribly and is also following Trump's guidance on Covid. It's too much for my husband to take in, and he's pretty conflict-avoidant. Brother's wife messaged me saying brother knows my husband is mad, why? I said (cont)

I haven’t seen my partner in over a year due to covid and I know his family is going to want to do a family trip once restrictions are lifted to go visit him overseas. (He is in the army stationed in South Korea). Would it be wrong of me if I said I wanted to go alone and be with him by myself? I feel like that may make me look a tad bratty but I don’t want to spend time with his family all fighting for his attention.

So my husband and I decided to go back to our original plan and starting to try for a baby next month. My daughter will be 18 months old and it’s been a struggle with work and her in general with covid and no daycare or outside help. I’m down to part time hours already with the intention of her hopefully being able to go to daycare in the summer or fall. I really want to complete my family but worry about not having help with two kids. Plus I dk how long it could take to get pregnant this time

Benefits of wearing masks: 1) Reduce spread of Covid and save lives 2) By reducing spread, we can open up the economy sooner and get people back to work. Note: we didn’t wear masks during the flu season because Covid is 10x deadlier. Any questions?

The guy I’m dating (dating for 1 month, exclusive for 2 weeks) went to test for COVID because he feels sick and wants to postpone his deferred exam. His result came back negative today and he told me that he would try to use an app to change the results so that the university will postpone the exam. I consider this to be a red flag because this sounds like a serious personal integrity issue regardless if he succeeds in doing it or not. He might cheat on other things. What do you think?

DonTheCon's "I got covid" and "I beat covid" is the biggest hoax in modern political history.
